When the Champion named Jhin was teased in late December and early January, he was teased via short clips of art depicting four Champions, Zed, Sona, Garen and Vi, appearing to be shot and possibly killed by Jhin, with numerous effects encompassing them(Oriental flowers and vines for Zed, wisps of smoke and ethereal butterflies for Sona, shards of crystals for Garen and smoke and flames for Vi) when first accessing their respective web pages on the League site. The four Champions, and Jhin, make up the standard team composition in League of Legends, the top-laner(Garen), the mid-laner(Zed), the jungler(Vi), and support(Sona) and the attack damage carry(Jhin).

During the development of Jhin, another champion that was released before he was, Kindred, stemmed off an initial concept for him. Kindred's bounty hunter-style passive was originally going to belong to Jhin, following the bounty hunter sniper theme that was originally planned for him. Once the concept was scrapped however, this passive ability went to the personification of Death that was, Kindred.

Jhin's passive is the first of it's kind in League of Legends, among his four other abilities, all of which are hodgepodges of abilities from existing Champions. Jhin doesn't gain any bonus attack speed or critical strike chance from items in matches, these stats are instead converted into attack damage, and attack speed becomes movement speed for whenever Jhin is reloading after his four-hit passive.

The initial concept for Jhin was that he was supposed to be some form of robotic bounty hunter-sniper. This concept was scrapped for a more psychotic, criminally insane persona, but the visual design went on to become his High Noon Jhin skin.

On the Howling Abyss map, player's inventories by default have the trinket slot occupied by 'Poro Snax', which can be fed to nearby Poros to make them happy. If a Braum feeds a Poro, they grow a distinct black mustache, akin to his own. Feeding a Poro with the Dragonslayer Braum skin gives Poros orange mustaches.
