I have a soft spot in my heart for Cho’Gath. He was my first main ever, and I played him back in Season 3 when he was not very viable. Old Cho’Gath had a max limit of 6 stacks, which he would lose upon death. Now, he can stack his ult infinitely, which means he can grow infinitely, right? Well, not exactly.
Cho’Gath can grow pretty large. However, there is still a limit to his model size. Today, we will test that limit and find out how big Cho’Gath can get.
How Many Stacks Can Cho’Gath Get
Cho’Gath at 6 Stacks
Cho’Gath can stack his Ultimate infinitely. However, he can only gain 6 stacks from minions. This means to go beyond 6 stacks, you’re going to need to eat a few Champions along the way.

Cho’Gath at 10 Stacks
Here we can see that Cho’s gotten just a little bigger. The difference between 6 stacks and 10 stacks is pretty apparent. After I feasted on a poor Garen Bot 6 or 7 times, I really felt like a monster. After 10 stacks, Cho stopped growing, so 10 stacks is the upper limit for Cho’Gath growth.
With that being said, I had a couple more ideas for becoming even bigger…
How to Make Cho’Gath Bigger
Cho’Gath 10 stacks + Elixir of Iron
Elixer of Iron makes every Champ a little bigger, and I figured it’d do the same for our large void boy. After chugging the potion, Cho’Gath did get a tad bigger. However, the difference is not as prominent as before. Chugging multiple Elixers doesn’t work, so this is about as big as Cho’Gath can get in most games.
BUT on rare occasions, it is possible to push the limits even more.

How to Make Cho’Gath Even BIGGER
Cho’Gath with 6 stacks + Elixir of Iron + Lulu Ult
Alright, so I couldn’t do this alone in the practice tool, so I had to do some Googling. Cho’Gath can reach his max size by obtaining full stacks (10), drinking an Elixer of Iron, and getting Lulu Ulted.
Unfortunately, some players believe that there is a model limit size and that the Lulu Ultimate will not make Cho bigger. I’m not sure which is the true answer, as I’m sure I’ve seen Cho’Gath get huge after Lulu ult, although maybe it’s just confirmation bias. What do you think?
Is Cho’Gath the Biggest Champion in League of Legends?
I have some good news for all of you size kings and queens. There is a Champion that can outgrow Cho’Gath! Zac’s size scales with HP, up to 4,000 health. When Zac reaches full stacks, he becomes even larger than Cho’Gath could ever dream. That’s before he chugs an Elixer of Iron, which just exasperates this green blob’s size even more.
And finally, I’ll leave you with this dance move. If you want to intimidate the enemy team into FF’ing every game, I recommend playing these goliaths and duo’ing with a Lulu. There’s something so satisfying and fulfilling about being the biggest model on the Rift, and it only gets better when you’re fed and murdering everyone in your path.

1,000 Stack Cho’Gath
Finally, I will leave you with this video from ProfessorAkali, where he somehow nets 1,000 stacks on Cho’Gath. I’m not sure if this is possible in standard games, but this video completely shattered my expectations.
Look at that colossal Void beast. I was under the impression that 10 stacks is the model limit, but as you can see, it is possible to go above and beyond. While you won’t be getting 1,000 ultimate stacks in solo queue, it is pretty comforting to know that there is a world where you can become bigger than Baron, at least theoretically.
