Paragon Just Ripped Off Akali From League of Legends?

Epic Games has just released a new trailer for Paragon, briefly showing Hero abilities of Kallari. The game itself is inspired by the likes of League of Legends and DOTA 2. However, it brings a twist by adding third-person view to the mix which you have to agree feels like a breath of fresh air in the stalest of genres.

Kallari is a close-range melee assassin with long-range damage abilities. He is a Ninja-Assassin who looks pretty badass. This dual-blade wielding demon is surely one to look out for. However, I can’t help but compare him to Akali from League of Legends and to me it looks like Kallari is highly inspired by Akali.

Akali League of Legends

Akali is a female melee-assassin will similar abilities and she uses dual-blades to rip her enemies to shreds. She can also cause damage from long range similar to Kallari. We don’t know everything about Kallari but seeing the footage above, I can’t notice much difference between the two characters apart from physical appearance. But that too can (somewhat) change if you use her Ninja Skin.
