Hannibal, the Dread Vanguard, was made for the Custom Champion Concept Battle #1, organized by Grrrbear26. The challenge of this battle was to have a champion with at least one ability that is affected or restricted by the actions of enemy champions.

In line with this challenge, Hannibal is a powerful offensive tank specializing not only in initiating for his team, but also providing additional initiation and mobility for his allies. What he lacks in direct initiation, he more than makes up for in immediate follow-up, as he can supplement his team with enormous amounts of damage and crowd control as he tanks for his allies. He does, however, have several pitfalls: when not riding his trusty warhorse, Strife, Hannibal is extremely slow, and since he has no means of attacking his opponents from large distances he's forced to constantly get within melee range of them. Unlike most tanks, he also lacks an ultimate, and the main asset he brings to his team, Strife, can also be hijacked by his opponents. As an extremely offensively-oriented champion, Hannibal is meant to work very well in all-in comps, and I designed him to be good in both top lane and the jungle, but also as a support, as his team-oriented kit would pair him well with aggressive marksmen.

Strife: Hannibal is accompanied by his warhorse, Strife. Any champion can right-click on Strife while near her to mount her, gaining a new set of abilities but losing the ability to attack. Strife is visible at all times and enemy riders will be forced to dismount after 5 seconds. After being dismounted, Strife cannot be mounted again for 5 seconds. If Hannibal dies, Strife, if mounted, will force her rider to dismount after 5 seconds and return to the fountain and remain unusable until Hannibal respawns.
