TabuSquare Tabu, the Voodoo Shaman is a canceled champion.

Development

Tabu was discovered in the beta files but, ever since then, has been canceled. Thematic similarities suggest he might have been inspired by Zharvakko, the Witch Doctor from Dota 2, and visual and gameplay similarities seem to indicate he might have been reworked into who is now Swain Swain.

Confirmation of his cancelation came in the 2010 Harrowing map skin for Summoner's Rift, where a coffin containing Tabu (along with two others each containing AverdrianSquare Averdrian and GavidSquare Gavid) could be seen, effectively serving as the final 'nail in the coffin'.
