Patch 9.16 is already set to be a big update for Teamfight Tactics. The introduction of the new Hextech class, four new champions, and a bunch of item updates will headline a major patch for TFT.
But the biggest change that’s coming in this patch is the three Little Legends that will be joining the roster. The Protector, Hushtail, and Paddlemar will be added to the current TFT lineup. Designs for the three Little Legends were revealed in Surrender@20’s July 31 PBE Update and they’re all adorable.
The Protector is a cute little tiger that will ferociously roam the TFT realm. The base Fierce Protector looks like a white tiger, while different variations of the Protectors have darker hues or bright highlights.
The Hushtail is an ethereal that looks a lot like Eevee from Pokémon. The Hushtail can evolve into a dark Moontipped Hushtail with a brightly-colored tail or the Monarch Hushtail, which has patterned ears like a Monarch Butterfly.
Finally, the turtle-like Paddlemar will give players an option to slowly traverse the arena while looking incredibly handsome. You can choose to get your Christmas spirit on with the Yuletide Paddlemar or go full turtle with the Tidepool Paddlemar.
These wonderful Little Legends have already hit the PBE and will be put onto the live servers next week.
Correction Aug. 1 3:20pm CT: Dot Esports incorrectly said that three new Little Legends, the Hextech class, four champions, and item updates would be added to TFT in Patch 9.15b instead of Patch 9.16. The article has been edited to reflect this information. We regret the error.
