LoL Best Jungle Players In The World Right Now
Watch and learn kids this is how kids become men in the jungle.

Ah, here we are at one of my favorite roles in the whole game simply because of how it can affect the match. Especially at the highest level of League of Legends, this role can win the game alone. Faker was not joking when he said “My main point is helping out the jungler” and please people follow what the man preaches.

He is not the best player in the world without a reason. Today we shall count the best junglers in the world. Some attended the Worlds 2021 Tournament and some are even retired but they still left a mark on this world with their plays! Let’s not waste any more time and let’s get into the best jungle players! 

10. Gao “Ning” Zhen-Ning

The Kayn prodigy. 

Gao “Ning” Zhen-Ning is an inactive Chinese player that showed people his Kayn mechanics in the jungle. He is a special kind of player that I respect the most. He transferred his role from an ADC to a jungler and made his life much better.

See how happy he is? Yes, he’s smiling because he knows he’s playing the best role in the whole game. He is also remembered for his insane mechanical skills that even today leave people breathless.

He is mostly remembered for his insane Kayn mechanics and skills and he was one of the first people to pick Kayn in the LPL. He was the MVP of the 2018 World Championship and he is remembered for his insane performance on Camille. 

How badass is this player? - He was one of the first people that picked Kayn in the LPL Tournament and showed us his insane mechanical skills on Camille. He is still mentioned by people who main and play Kayn or Camille. Champions that he liked to play are Kayn, Camille, Rek’sai, and Gragas. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Got third or fourth place in the 2019 World Championship with his team Invictus Gaming earning 155,750$.

He also won first place in the 2020 World Championship with his team Invictus Gaming earning a total of 2,418,750$.

9. Seo “Kanavi” Jin Hyeok 

Had the best ganks and roams for a while. 

Seo “Kanavi” Jin-hyeok is a South Korean professional player for a team named “JD Gaming”.In 2019 Kanavi was looking to become the best up-and-coming jungle player and he was for a time. As his ganks and roams couldn’t be matched.

Give any champion to this guy and he could potentially solo carry the whole game. But he is mostly known for building off-meta items on some champions. See Kanavi didn’t care what others would think of him as he only cared about winning and that’s the positive mental attitude you gotta have playing this game.

Kanavi is also really good frens with Chovy and Legends. He is currently playing with his dear team “JD Gaming”. 

How badass is this player? - Kanavi didn’t care what others would think of his builds. He built what his heart told him to do. And his heart told him to build “Redemption” on Olaf and sometimes he’d go Doran’s Blade on other champions. Some of the champions this guy likes to play are Lee Sin, Vi, and Olaf. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Kanavi along with his team “JD Gaming” won first place in the LPL Spring 2020 which earned them 283,186$. 

Later they got second place in the LPL Spring 2020 which got them a total of 145,134$. 

Seo “Kanavi” Jin-hyeok highlights:

Kanavi does not own a Twitter account so I shall link his current team’s Twitter:


8. Go “Score” Dong-bin

The most loyal player.

Go “Score” Dong-bin is a retired South Korean professional player. He is remembered as one of the most loyal players in the professional scene as he stayed with his team “KT Rolster” for 5 whole years.

Damn, not even my dog is that loyal. Mad respect for this guy! His old nickname was “Joker” as a reference to the famous actor “Heath Ledger” and some of his favorite champions are Ezreal and Zyra. He reached 300 wins in the LCK on January 25th, 2019, and not too long after he reached 500 games in the LCK on March 16th, 2019 and he was the first player to do that!

He earned himself the nickname “The Heart of KT”.  Go “Score” Dong-bin had a curse on him that he would always get second place in the LCK Tournaments but later he broke that curse by winning the LCK 2018 Summer Playoffs. 

How badass is this player? - He alone played 500 games in the LCK Tournaments and had 300 wins. If my math is correct that means he had a positive win rate in the tournaments. Some of the champions he liked to play in the jungle were Gragas, Lee Sin, and Graves! 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He got first place in the LCK 2018 Summer Playoffs playing with his team “KT Rolster” earning 88,933$. 

Also got first place in the KeSPA Cup 2017 again playing with his team “KT Rolster” earning a total of 37,798$.

7. Zhao “JieJie” Li-Jie

Worlds 2021 Winner!

Zhao “JieJie” Li-Jie is the newest World 2021 Championship winner! This mad lad comes straight from China and he’s currently playing on a team called “Edward Gaming”. JieJie showed us his immense skills during the Worlds 2021 and showed us how to properly gank a lane and help out your team in need.

This player does not mess around when it comes to ganking and playing the jungle role. He utilizes the role to its full potential. Not only is he the third prince of EDG but JieJie is also confident with his words during post-game matches. Like, seriously you should hear what he says during the post-game match and how confidence just oozes through him. 

How badass is this player? - He won Worlds 2021. Do I have to say anything else about it? By simply saying to girls that you won the Worlds 2021 their panties will start dropping. Some of the champions that he loves playing are Xin Zhao, Viego, and Jarvan IV

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Zhao “JieJie” Li-Jie got first place in the Worlds 2021 Championship with his team “EDG” earning a whopping total of 489,500$. 

Also achieved first place with the same team in the LPL 2021 Tournament earning 309,683$. 

Zhao “JieJie” Li-Jie highlights:

It seems like Twitter isn’t popular among professional players because JieJie does not own it as well so here is his team’s Twitter account.


6. Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau 

From the top lane to the jungle. What a role switch.

Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau is a professional jungler for “Fnatic” and he is from Belgium but he is half Brazilian as his mother and a part of his family are from Brazil. Bwipo is also a talkative guy as many people said from his team.

He also used to play top lane but later he switched to jungle as he is known for it today. Thanks to his talkative personality Bwipo has often appeared on the LEC broadcasts as a guest and many fans speculate that’s going to be his future! He also apparently switched to bot lane briefly as Rekkles refused to play the then-meta bruisers. That meta was AIDS btw just a side note.

There is a rumor speculating around Bwipo that he had a rivalry with sOAZ when they were teammates but none have confirmed or denied the rumor to this day. We shall never know what really happened between them. Bwipo also got second place in the LEC Tournaments 2019/2020x2/2021 back to back.

How badass is this player? - Bwipo went from top to jungle to bot lane for a short time then went back to jungle. This guy switched more roles than I switched drugs. Some of the champions that he plays in the jungle are Gragas, Viego, and Jarvan IV. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau got second place in the LEC 2021 Tournament with his team Fnatic which in return earned him a total of 59,318$. 

Bwipo got second place in the LEC 2020 Tournament again with the same team in which they earned a total of 59,202$. 

Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau highlights: 


5. Yan “Wei” Yang-Wei

Excells at mid and late game.

Yan “Wei'' Yang-Wei is a professional Chinese jungler for “Royal Never Give Up”. His career has had a booming success while playing for RNG. He quickly solidified himself as the best jungler “RNG” has yet seen.

Wei isn’t an aggressive jungler but he surely shows up during the mid to late game periods, he also has good team fight mechanics. Wei plays around his strengths and not his weaknesses.

He was the infamous player that took Ignite instead of Smite in a game against “Bilibili Gaming” in the LPL 2020 Summer Season which resulted in him getting a fine by eStar. But he did not care about the fine. All he cared for is that people remember him for that. Which the League community did. 

How badass is this player? - Wei cemented himself quickly as the next up-and-coming great jungler of League of Legends with his newly found team “Royal Never Give up”. He also took Ignite instead of Smite to show how many f’s this guy gives. Which is none! Some of the champions he’s really good at are Graves, Pantheon, and Lilia. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

He achieved with his team “Royal Never Give Up” first place in the Mid Seasonal Invitational 2021 earning 75,000$. 

He also achieved with the same team first place in the LPL Spring 2021 Tournament which got him 306,701$ in his pocket. 

Yan “Wei” Yang-Wei highlights: 

Wei sadly does not own a Twitter account but you can occasionally find updates on him here 


4. Javier “Elyoya” Prades 

The second player that has the widest champion pool.

Javier “Elyoya'' Prades is a western professional jungler from Spain. He’s currently playing for a team called “MAD Lions''. Elyoya started the year slow but he was quickly the huge reason for the team’s huge success.

Yes, his jungling skills got the team to Worlds 2021 since last year they couldn’t get out of Play-ins for Worlds 2020. Elyoya also has the second widest champion pool out of any people on this list perhaps. But please remember Elyoya even at his poor form brought MAD Lions to MSI Finals so just imagine what this legend can do when he’s at his peak form.

He was nicknamed “Elyoya” by the Spanish community so it just stuck with him and that’s how we know him today! 

How badass is this player? - Elyoya is one of the huge reasons why MAD Lions reached MSI Finals and the reason why the team reached Worlds 2021. Even though he has a wide champion pool he is known for his Qiyana, Kha’zix, and Lee Sin. 

Major Tournament Achievements:

Elyoya with his team “MAD Lions” got first place in the LEC Summer 2021 Tournament and got a total of 94,909$. 

He also achieved first place with “MAD Lions” in the LEC Spring 2021 Tournament and earned 94,190$. 

Javier “Elyoya” Prades highlights:


3. Gao “Tian” Tian-Liang

Worlds 2019 Winner.

Gao “Tian” Tian-Liang is a professional jungler for the team “FunPlus Phoenix” and he’s from China. Something to mention about Tian is that he won the Worlds 2019 Tournament and that placed him in a major spotlight for a new up-and-coming jungler.

His playstyle is quite different as he does not focus primarily on others to deal damage, he is the damage dealer. He isn’t afraid of a fight especially 5v5’s as most of the times Tian will be there. If there’s a fight going on anywhere on the Summoner’s Rift it has a high chance that Tian is there being the main star of the attraction.

Someone better get WorldStar up in here! Tian is especially known for his Qiyana and Lee Sin jungle. Some even say he perfected the Qiyana jungle strategy. Tian like many League of Legends players he’s also a huge fan of anime! Sugoi Sugoi! 

How badass is this player? - He was the MVP at Worlds 2019 Championship with his Lee Sin outplays and skills! Some of the champions that he loves to play in the jungle are Qiyana, Lee Sin, and a small sprinkle of Elise! 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Gao “Tian” Tian-Liang with his team “FunPlus Phoenix” won the Worlds 2019 Championship earning 834,375$. 

He also won LPL Summer 2019 with the same team earning 210,159$. 

Gao “Tian” Tian-Liang highlights:

Tian sadly does not own a Twitter account but you can occasionally find him on his team’s Twitter account 


2. Bae “Bengi” Seong-woong

Nicknamed by the LoL Community "The Jungle".

Bae “Bengi” Seong-woong is a retired professional jungle player. He used to play for SKT T1 and he won three World Championships with the team. Sadly later he retired as a professional player and he became a coach for T1 Challengers.

During his professional career, Bengi was nicknamed “The Jungle” because he was so damn good at it. Bengi was the first person to pick up Zac in the competitive setting. Bengi was also regarded as the savior of SKT T1 as he would turn the tide of battle alone.

If the team was on the verge of losing a match this lord would jump in and say “Nah” and win the match. He successfully defended his championship titles 3 times in a row and was the only person to do that alongside his great friend and teammate Faker. 

How badass is this player? - Bengi won 3 World Championships in a row, defending his title as the best jungler over and over again. Once he was bored of it he decided to become a successful coach. Some of the champions that he loved playing are Lee Sin, Vi, Elise, Rek’sai, and Nunu. 

Major Tournament Achievements:

Won first place in the Worlds 2016 Championship with SKT T1 which earned them 2,028,000$.

Bae “Bengi” Seong-woong highlights:


1. Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu

LCK back-to-back winner.

Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu comes from South Korea and he’s a professional jungle player for the team “DAMWON Gaming”. Sadly he got second place in the Worlds 2021 Championship but don’t think that’s no small feat.

Even getting into the top 5 is something huge. This player showed what it really means to be the best jungler of League of Legends. He started this year strong and ended it on a strong note and he doesn’t show any signs of stopping.

Not only that but Canyon has also won two LCK Tournaments this year back to back showing everyone he’s someone not to be messed with and people should fear him! He’s the first player ever to get a penta kill in the LCK on the 24th of July 2020. Canyon is often nicknamed “Polar Bear” by his teammates and fans. 

How badass is this player? - Canyon not only has won two LCK Tournaments back to back but he also managed to reach second place in the Worlds 2021 Championship. Champions that he loves to play are Lee Sin, Kindred, and Nidalee. 

Major Tournament Achievements: 

Canyon got first place in the LCK Summer 2021 with his team DAMWON Gaming which earned them 172,576$. 

Also reached first place in the LCK Spring 2021 that also earned him and his team 178,412$. 

Canyon also reached second place in the Worlds 2021 Championship which earned him a total of 333,750$. 

Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu highlights:
