DH5: 013 - Nunu, The Yeti Rider
Stay frosty everyone, it looks like we're up against that ice tossing tyke Nunu and his yelling yeti! And what's this?! Crabthief has returned to confiscate some coco! Better watch out little crab! that yeti-rider means snowball business!
Nunu is a pretty cool design, I always liked the rider characters like the dwarf rifer in Golden Axe 2: The Revenge of the Death Adder. Nunu's voice grates on me a it but I love how powerful his yeti seems to be. Fun proportions on that giant creature make him very fun to interpret and the small element of Nunu juxtaposes the character in an interesting way as well.
This guy is pretty fun to play, I remember in the game when his ult was absolute king and then it went to an easily interruptible nuisance. Although I'm probably the worst flash user ever, I always loved seeing flash-initiating with that giant AOE. An on command slow, a built in smite with a heal, a sharable steroid? What a super fun champion to be playing! So if you are saving some snowy strats drop this Rider some words below! Show your love for that nasty Nunu and his yowling Yeti!
