After seeing my video called The secret references behind Vainglory charms! , u/doer_SEMC (a Vainglory developper) said:

Chicken dance FTW. There are also, at this point, dozens of VO references to figure out. There are usually several in each character’s script.

…Is he challenging us? Well, let’s find as many references as we can then! Each time someone find one that sounds right, I’ll add it to the list below. If possible, please add a link to the reference. For example, if it’s a song, give us a Youtube link. #1 in the list is a confirmed example. I’ll also give credit here, in an upcoming forum post and in and upcoming video, to anyone who find a reference. You deserve it! Now, let’s go! You can find lots of the quotes from the game here but the thread is outdated and a lot are missing. (I’m working on it, your help is welcome)
