Not to be confused with Ultra Rapid Fire

UrfSquare Urf, the Manatee is a 'canceled' League of Legends Champion originally conceived as an April Fools' Day joke. Ever since then, he has become a 'mascot' of sorts, making regular and varied appearances particularly around April 1.

A New Champion Approaches: Urf, the Manatee

By ByronicHero [1]


Despite the traditionally peaceful ways of his people, UrfSquare Urf the Manatee idolized the strength and prowess of champions in the League of Legends and strived to become one. Of all the League's champions, there was none that Urf admired more than Jax Jax the Armsmaster. Since the introduction of the arena, no man has forced the League of Legends to revise their regulations more often than Jax, and the self-proclaimed "Grandmaster at Arms" rattled off a streak of consecutive wins 152 long. In order to compensate for the extreme power of this champion, the League created special sanctions for Jax: He is only allowed to fight with weapons the League deems suitable. For now, that list includes a lamppost, a chicken's foot, a spatula, and a fishing rod.

In his admiration and pursuit to become a weapons master like Jax, Urf has equipped himself with the two great symbols of his Manatee heritage as his weapons: a fish (to symbolize the bounty and providence of the sea) and spatula (to pay homage to his people's age-long pursuit for culinary mastery). Urf now begins his aquatic journey as the League's first Manatee champion, hoping one day he will have the opportunity to cross fish and spatula with chicken's foot and lamppost.


Big Blue Watery Road

Urf is naturally faster and more agile in bodies of water.

Flippy Floppy

Urf switches weapons between fish and spatula to accommodate the needs of his team. Attacks with fish deal damage over time, while attacks with Spatula deal instant damage.

Poseidon's Gaze

Urf calls upon the powers of the Manatee god, Poseidon, to notify his allies of a position on the Fields of Justice. Poseidon's Gaze removes Fog of War.

Flop Strike

Urf flops onto an enemy with massive destructive force. Urf must be directly next to an enemy to successfully execute this skill.


Urf calls upon the elements to bring forth a destructive deluge of water. All nearby enemies take water damage and are briefly impaired in movement.

Honoring Our Fallen Champion

Celebration in Piltover honors the passing of UrfSquare Urf the Manatee

Aria Breker reporting from Piltover [2]

Despite the tension and strife gripping Valoran in recent times, people from across the continent gathered yesterday in Piltover peacefully to honor Urf. The brave manatee was remembered with a day of festivities that included cooking contests, races in the Guardian's Sea, werewolf-shaped piñatas, and much more.

Next week marks the one year anniversary of the death of the most celebrated marine mammal in Runeterra's history. On April 1, 20 CLE, the excitement leading up to Urf's entrance into the League met a somber end in a horrifying turn of events. Urf the Manatee was slain in an unfortunate accident on Summoner's Rift during his very first match as a League champion. He was never to be seen again, despite spooked summoners' claims of Urf appearing during the time of the Harrowing.

Kicking off the day's celebrations in Piltover was League Champion Jax Jax. "I hardly knew him", he declared at the opening ceremonies with a tinge of sadness. "But I have nothing but admiration. He was the only warrior in all of Valoran other than myself who limited his extreme power according to League sanctions. Forever lost is the opportunity to learn the legendary fish and spatula technique thanks to a cruel and senseless murder."

Although long-standing rivalries were temporarily put aside to honor the fallen manatee, it seems that the day was not immune to heated opinions. Piltovian citizens were unable to hold in their disgust with the appearance of Professor Stanwick Pididly. The prevailing scholar of Zaun scoffed at the celebration, loudly proclaiming to anyone within earshot that it was not too late to restore Urf back to life. He expressed an inability to understand the reason behind all the wasted emotion and fanfare, when the date of Urf's passing was still recent enough for the Rite of Reclamation to be effective. Necromancy is heavily frowned upon in the City of Progress, and as such Professor Pididly was calmly escorted away from the festivities despite his protests that time was running out to revive Urf.

League Champion Warwick Warwick, the suspected perpetrator of Urf's demise, was notably absent from the celebration.

Happy Urf Day, Everyone!

By ByronicHero [3]

Unfortunately, today, the story of Urf Day took a tragic turn, for as UrfSquare Urf was swimming along, dutifully guarding the river in the Summoner's Rift, he met with a tragic demise. Eye-witness accounts have been unreliable at best, but everyone seems to agree that just before it happened a blue streak was seen darting out of the nearby jungle. A great clamor ensued, followed by the doleful screams of a manatee done wrong. In the end, all that was left of this brave prince amongst sea cows was his skin... and even that was stolen by this most nefarious of perpetrators.

Now any good story needs a moral. So if there's anything that the story of Urf Day and the story of the Big Bad Wolf have in common, it's this: deep within every wolf, there is a cunning master of disguise just waiting to get out. Take Warwick Warwick, for instance; a giant, bloodthirsty werewolf able to cunningly adapt by blending into even the most innocent of surroundings. He could be anywhere at any time... behind a rock, in the brush, in the jungle, or cleverly masquerading as a lovable, spatula-wielding manatee.

If you want to ensure that your Blood Hunter Blood Hunter appears completely inconspicuous to even the most wary of foes, be sure to snatch up the Urf the Manatee Urf the Manatee [S|L] skin, on sale now in the League of Legends store. Now, you've all heard about Legendary skins. And so, in light of the recent events, Marketing has determined that the Urf the Manatee skin is now even more Legendary than we had originally anticipated. As such, Warwick's Urf the Manatee skin will be available at the cost of RP icon 5000. However, in the interests of giving everyone the opportunity to pay their respects to this magnificent mammal, Marketing has also agreed to offer this tribute to his splendor at 99% off for one week only. That's right: I said 99% off! At a cost of only RP icon 50, you have no reason to shirk paying tribute to the passing of this brave soul!

During the second week of availability, the Urf the Manatee skin will be purchasable for RP icon 500 (still not a bad deal, considering that's 90% off). And on Urf's final day, if you haven't yet snatched him up, you'll have one final chance to do so for RP icon 5000. So hurry and fire up the League of Legends store, already! It's Urf Day!

Urf the Manatee's final resting place is the Skins section of the Store. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim's family.


There are several Summoner icons that showcase Urf on them, which were offered during various holiday events:


  • A few of Urf's skills are in reference to the song "I'm on a Boat" by the Lonely Island. Most notably are Flippy Floppy, Big Blue Watery Road, Poseidon's Gaze ("Poseidon look at me!"), and an old skill, Straight Floatin'.
  • Urf's skill "Omnisplash" is likely a reference to Cloud Strife's final Limit Break from Final Fantasy VII, "Omnislash."
  • Urf's skill "Flippy-Floppy" is thematically similar to Jinx's Jinx's Switcheroo! Switcheroo!, in that Urf uses a different weapon depending on whether the ability is toggled on or off.
  • On April 1, 2014, all the icons of champions and items and summoner spells from the League of Legends commentary pages were replaced with Urf's splashart.
    • Also for April 1, 2014, Riot released a new, limited time game mode called Ultra Rapid Fire, or URF for short. While this game was available summoners could earn the Urf 2014 icon.
