On 9 June 2021, PentaKing uploaded a skin to Skin Empire which was Klee from Genshin Impact as Ziggs in League of Legends. This was a very simple mod with just the model being replaced. This was named V0.1. Over at Killerskins on 22 August 2021, a creator named AntiWibu uploaded Klee Ziggs, but with full animation, abilities and voiceovers for the skin which was considered to be the best possible version for Klee as Ziggs. These skins were immediately loved by fans and appreciated by the custom skin community, but it wasn’t until the 5th of February 2022 that the skin “blew up” (hehe).
On 3 February 2022, PentaKing decided to update the Klee skin, but then found the Klee Ziggs skin by AntiWibu on Killerskins. He had contacted AntiWibu about the skin and asked if he could upload his version to Skin Empire which he agreed to. On February 5th, PentaKing made a spotlight, adjusted the mod to fit Skin Empire and uploaded it to the website. 2 days later, the post was picked up by DOT Esports which read an article about the crossover between the 2 universes. This instantly brought a lot of eyes to Klee Ziggs, Skin Empire, AntiWibu and PentaKing. on February 10th, the post was picked up by ONE Esports and on February 11th, the post was picked up by GameRant and over the days many more news outlets started covering the skin.
Because of all this exposure, the skin blew up in the gaming world where both Genshin Impact fans as well as League of Legends fans started sending a lot of appreciation to the custom skin community for making this happen. AntiWibu has updated the post with a VO for every region so everyone gets to enjoy the adorable voice of Klee. He had also created Ganyu Kindred which received a lot of attention as well thanks to the Klee skin and is currently working on a skin for Fischl in League of Legends.
