League of Legends, a MOBA game, has many different characters to choose from, one character is Urgot. Currently, Urgot is one of the most broken top laners and junglers. He does an incredible amount of damage with his passive, commonly referred to as “shotgun knees,” which does percentage health damage. He also has a strong initiation with his leap that throws enemies behind him. However, the most interesting part of his kit is his ultimate, where he shoots out a chain that instantly kills enemies below 25% health. His counter, however, is crowd control and kiting.

This relates to programming because many engineers had to program the character to even function, and other people had to properly design Urgot as to fit into this game without completely breaking the balance of other characters.
