Amumu

The Sad Mummy

Amumu INFO

  • Amumu was released on 26 June 2009 and can be purchased from the Riot Store for 450 IP or 260 RP.
  • The icon for Bandage Toss is a reference to Spider-Man from Marvel Comics.
  • Amumu was one of the champions available for the Ionian pool during the Ionia vs. Noxus match, and was one of the selected champions.
  • Amumu is seen on a caution sign in the Mac Version of League of Legends preview video.
  • Amumu is the third champion to have 7 skins.
  • Amumu's dance is a reference to the television show South Park, in which the Gothic kids would dance by shuffling from side to side, and take a smoke from their cigarette every second time they turned. A side-by-side comparison can be viewed here. Both dances are, in turn, parodies of the classic "Peanut's Dance", which is the bizarre shuffling dance performed by the characters of the Peanuts comic.

Amumu Pros

  • High late game AoE damage.
  • Game changing AoE ultimate.
  • Fast jungle clear.
  • High early game damage if minions nearby (spamming E).
  • Long range skillshot CC for ganks / escapes.

Amumu Cons

  • Incredibly hard to play if your team doesn't react.
  • Hitting Bandage Toss is necessary for successful ganks and initiates.
  • High cooldown ultimate.
  • weak early game.

Amumu Counter Tips

  • Try not to bunch up against his AOE CC ultimate.
  • Use ranged attacks to kite him around to avoid all of his AoE Damage.
  • If you can, invade his jungle and steal his blue buff, Amumu consumes a lot of mana while clearing at early levels, so he wont have enough mana to gank or farm.
  • Ward well to avoid Amumu's ganks. If you can dodge his Q, the bandage toss is his gap closer, he has no way of effectively ganking.

Amumu DEV INFO

  • Amumu was designed by Ezreal.
  • Amumu is voiced by Cristina Ulloa, Who also voices Annie and Nunu.
  • His name is a pun on "A mummy".
