PAX Sivir was gifted to visitors who attended the PAX event in 2011. Similar to PAX Jax and PAX Twisted Fate it features the League of Legends Champion Sivir with PAX branding and a Tron theme. This skin just falls out of the top 10 rarest League of Legends skins because of the popularity of the PAX 2011 event. It's far rarer than the Pax Twisted Fate, offered at the 2009 event.

UFO Corki was released as a promotional skin back in 2010, and was given for free to all accounts registered before 2010. The skin features Corki in a UFO and is rarely seen on the rift due to how rare the skin is, as well as veteran players leaving the game. The fun aspect of this skin, as well as the new sounds, animations and visuals have lead this to be an extremely sought after skin. Unfortunately Riot have never showed any interest in making it obtainable again.

Pax Jax, similar to Pax Twisted Fate, was gifted to players that attended the Penny Arcade eXpo, although in this case it was back in 2012. As the playerbase was bigger in 2012 this skin was easier to obtain than the Pax Twisted Fate skin so it's not as rare, although it's still obtained on just 1% of all accounts. This skin has previously been sold online for a few hundred dollars and features a reference to the iconic video game character Pac-Man.

Kayle is one of the most iconic League of Legends champions, and as an original champion, she has recieved her fair share of rare skins. Obtained on just 1% of all accounts, Silver Kayle is one of the rarest League of Legends skins you can see. The skin was rewarded to players that pre-purchased the collectors edition and hasn't been available since 2014, when Riot disabled skin codes.

The victorious skins are rewarded to players at the end of the ranked season with an ELO of Gold or higher. While there are currently 6 Victorious skins in the game, Victorious Jarvan is definitely the rarest. It was a reward for players from Season 1, back when the community was still growing and the League of Legends world championship final was in a room with just a handful of fans. The fact that few players even played back in Season 1, and you had to be gold, puts this rare skin into our top 10.

Based on the Mario villian Bowser, King Rammus is a rare League of Legends skin released at the end of the League of Legends beta. This skin is therefore only available to true League of Legends veterans, and although it's offically on around 0.75% of all accounts, we think, due to inactivity, this number is probably a lot smaller.

Pax Twisted Fate is one of the most expensive second hand rare League of Legends skins available.

As of 2014 Riot have made skin codes no longer redeemable so this skin is now impossible to obtain. Although it is available on the UnrankedSmurfs Skin Shop.
