Since the release of TFT in 2019, one of the main components of the said game were the Little Legends. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with different personalities so you can choose your favorite. Riot has released many Little Legends since the betta TFT, and I was given a very difficult task of ranking my Top 10, since they are all cute and adorable it is almost impossible to choose.
What Are Little Legends?
Little Legends are tiny creatures that you use to identify yourself and other players on the board. They come in many shapes and sizes, and they are your in-game avatar, your alter ego. They can jump, dance, sing, cry, and even mock their defeated enemies.
Little Legends have become a signature sign of TFT, so I wanted to give them the attention they deserve.
Little Legends are one of the types of avatars for the player in the Teamfight Tactics game mode. Additionally, a player’s Little Legend will follow their champion on the Howling Abyss. All players have the River Sprite as their default Little Legend.

Type of Eggs
There are some special rules for “Series” Eggs:
- Duplicates Star Up: Getting a duplicate variant will cause it to star up by one level. Once a variant reaches 3 stars, it won’t hatch from future eggs.
- New Content with Each Egg: Each egg you hatch will grant you a variant you don’t already own, or a star up for a variant you already own.
- Double Drops: Occasionally, when you receive a Legendary Little Legend, two Little Legends will hatch from a single egg.
- Rare Egg: If you open a “Series” eggs after you own all variants it contains at 3 stars, it will output a “Little Legend” permanent that can be forged into a “Rare Egg”.
Starter Litte Legends Eggs

The first two seasons did not have Triumphant skins, however, due to the change to two splits per set happening in Season 3. Getting Gold or above in at least one half of the set will reward the Victorious skin, and getting Gold or above in both halves rewards both.

Can you get Little Legends for free?
The answer is YES! Yes, you can get them for free. There are currently three ways to get Little Legends for free.
The first way is through the TFT Pass, but not the paid one. There are several free rewards along the way, and out of those many free rewards, a few of them are Little Legends Series Eggs. In the current TFT Pass, you can get three Little Legends TFT eggs for free.
The second way is through the Event Tokens. League of Legends often has enormous events that will let you rack up some Event Tokens to help unlock Prestige Skins or get some free chests or other rewards. One of the rewards for the Event Passes is Little Legends Eggs, which can be unlocked for 300 Tokens.
The third way, and usually a rare one, is through Missions. Every once in a while, League of Legends will have specific missions that have Little Legends Eggs. You can use this moment to seize the free Little Legend.
As you can see, all the ways to earn Little Legends for free require grinding. What are you waiting for? Start grinding!
That’s it for our TOP 10 LITTLE LEGENDS, which is concluding with the current patch. I am sure with the future patches we will get many more Little Legends and this list will be changing accordingly. Expect a new list as soon as the next patch hits the servers!
