Best Nasus Skins in League of Legends (All Ranked)

When you think about good champion skins, the first ones that come to mind are usually Riot’s favorites, like Lux or Katarina.

But our humble stacking homeboy is absolutely stacked! Pun very much intended.

He has 10 skins in total (as of this writing) with nearly all of them being A-class material or above, and quite a wide range when it comes to themes as well.

So while you’re ignoring your team and pushing that top wave, why not make sure that you’re looking your best?

 

10. Dreadknight Nasus

Released: April 26th, 2011
Price: 975 RP

Although the dark and edgy scheme seems like a good fit for Nasus, I think it’s his worst skin, all things considered.

It only changes the base model. And unlike a lot of his other skins, it doesn’t really have a distinct look.

Don’t get me wrong, it is pretty cool.

But it pales in comparison to the others.

Plus, it’s rocking a 975 RP price tag. And there are cheaper Nasus skins that will have the same impact, if not even a larger one, on your farm simulator experience.

An okay skin in general, but a terrible one for our doggo.

 

9. Galactic Nasus

Released: Jul 13th 2010
Price: 520 RP

Galactic Nasus basically has the same issues as Dreadknight Nasus, but with a more reasonable price tag.

The skin looks more polished than the base skin, but it doesn’t go that into the galactic theme as one would have hoped.

Besides the jewel on his chest and maybe the shoulder pads there’s nothing really galactic or futuristic about him.

The splash art is pretty decent, especially given its release date. But I still can’t say that it can beat out the following picks on this list in any meaningful way.

 

8. Worldbreaker Nasus

Released: November 10th 2016
Price: 750 RP

And now we’re getting into the A-class skins.

Worldbreaker Nasus is very simple and very effective.

It doesn’t change the character model too drastically, but adds some much needed elements, like more vibrant colors and a truly amazing head-piece.

His cane looks quite different now too, with a visual style that just scream “fantasy RPG” to me, while his animations remain the same.

Since the color scheme is still blue and purple, the animations all fit in very nicely, making it an excellent skin overall.

It didn’t really blow me away. But I can’t say that I have complaints either.

 

7. Battlecast Nasus

Released: November 12th, 2020
Price: 1350 RP

This is a skin that I really wanted to love, but was left just a tad disappointed.

Considering it’s one of the newer skins, there should be no doubts about the overall quality.

The theme is very clean and consistent, the backing animation is really cool, and his Q, W, and E all look pretty damn dope.

However, the ult left a lot to be desired in my opinion.

The model gets so red that it kind of loses its original robotic vibe.

I won’t deny that it’s an extremely cool skin overall. But with a price tag that high, a single fault will knock you down several spaces on my list.

 

6. Pharaoh Nasus

Released: November 2nd, 2010
Price: 520 RP

The Pharaoh Nasus skin just provides a really good bang for your buck.

It only changes the base model, but it just makes so much sense that it doesn’t need anything else.

As the name would imply, it finally goes ham with the Egyptian theme and makes Nasus truly feel like he was bonking pyramids before he moved on to turrets.

It’s also quite an old skin, so some League veterans might just give you the emote of approval upon seeing you wandering the Rift.

Great value overall.

 

5. Space Groove Nasus

Released: April 1st, 2021
Price: 1350 RP

If you like gag skins, this one will easily be at the very top of your list.

It’s just wonderfully goofy, making Nasus nothing more than a mech piloted by a cute little pup with a funky attitude.

The skin comes with completely unique voice lines, animations, and sound effects, all based on this futuristic funky world where people groove out while beating you to death with a cane.

The recall animation is simply amazing. And the E animation nearly makes the price tag worth it by itself.

However, the Q, E, and R didn’t exactly blow me away visually.

And the sound effects were brilliant, but the visuals not so much.

Plus there’s a different skin that I would use if I wanted to feel like a goofy demigod.

 

4. Riot K-9 Nasus

Released: August 16th, 2011
Price: 975 RP

This is one of those skins that proves how effective simplicity can be.

It just makes Nasus a cop, and somehow that just makes complete sense to me.

Sporting some nicely designed protective wear, and with a baton in his hand, this K-9 is ready to serve up some justice.

There are no changes to the visuals, but I never felt like that got in the way too much.

Plus, it’s an old legacy skin, meaning that it makes you feel just slightly more special (and maybe nostalgic) than many of the other skins on this list.

 

3. Lunar Guardian Nasus

Released: February 8th, 2018
Price: 1350 RP

The Lunar Guardian Nasus (along with the following two skins) has nothing but positives in my mind.

All of these are just so well-crafted that I could easily flip flop between them in terms of ranking.

This time around, Lunar Guardian Nasus will have to take the bottom of the big three. But it might not stay that way for long.

The character model for this skin just makes me feel like a god.

The golden apparel and cane, the long flowing hair, and the wolf-like face structure all blend in perfectly to just make the character feel powerful.

And the animations only further amplify that fantasy.

Especially the ult. It just makes you feel like a damn Super Saiyan – and I will never say no to a DBZ thematic.

 

2. Archduke Nasus

Released: March 31st, 2015
Price: 750 RP

I just find this skin both hilarious and brilliant.

Although I have no idea who looked at a raging demigod (or should I say demidog) and thought “he would look good in a suit”, but damn was he right.

The suit is impeccable, the cane goes along with it perfectly, and the hat + monocle combo just finishes off the whole look.

There’s something so innately fun about chasing people down and smacking them to death, all while looking this elegant, that I just can’t help but love this skin with all my heart.

Plus it’s one of the cheapest skins out there!

 

1. Infernal Nasus

Released: November 20th, 2013
Price: 1820 RP

I usually try to stray away from the mentality that a high price automatically equals a good design.

But I just can’t pretend like this skin isn’t S-class.

Every animation and design choice that went into making Infernal Nasus just make you feel like an all-powerful deity that clawed its way out of hell, and is now wreaking havoc on the Rift.

You get the boombox of disrespect, the fierce ult flames, the epic voice lines, everything!

The fact that his armor also comes to life and gives him two extra heads along with real devil horns just sells the whole package even more.
