It hurts when people say “Jinx from Arcane” when she’s a LOL character. Not to be that girl, it’s just a bit of a head-in-hand concession. Like saying “I think I’m going to cosplay as a clicker from that HBO show”.

Except that it makes total sense to do so? Characters in adaptations of a source typically don't look exactly the same as their original counterpart. A simple google search reveals that this is Jinx's outfit from Arcane, and that her original outfit is different.

Breaking News: Redditor gets mad over character skins and semantics!

Not mad! I even said I conceded that it was silly- or at least that’s what I meant to imply.

A character is from one thing but feature in another.

You say feature because then they can be ripped from source material and placed in entirely different circumstances.

Like the Supernatural crossover with Scooby-doo You wouldn't say the Winchester Brothers from Scooby-doo. You would just say they're from Supernatural since it was there source material.

Not that any of it really matters it's just semantics.

Edit a word.

I know exactly what you mean.

But it's to be expected when people get into a series through secondary content.

Like when people call master chief or kratos " those guys from Fortnite."

... It's literally her skin from the Arcane series, not her skin from LoL.

It's a league of legends character.

The character is league of legends.

What more needs to be said? Unless you agree with saying Naruto/kratos are Fortnite characters? And if that's the case feel free to block me

If Kratos' outfit in Fortnite was different from his GoW outfit, and someone cosplayed as the Fortnite version and said "My Kratos (Fortnite) cosplay", then that situation is comparable. If his Fortnite skin was identical to his GoW skin, and her Arcane skin was identical to her LoL skin, you might have a point.


But her Arcane skin is different from her LoL skin and the outfit is clearly cosplaying the Arcane version. So you don't.

You're making up an argument in your head and arguing with that instead of acknowledging what I'm saying

So this is pointless

I think you're just caught in a situation where you were wrong in your initial post and unwilling to admit it. It's ok, that's hard to do sometimes.

Yeah, I get it. I’m not mad about it, just slightly facepalmy, but I concede that it’s silly to feel that way.

Imagine downvoting someone for being self aware and stating that their feelings are silly 💀 Reddit doesn’t appreciate the grey area
