Butterfly Redesign Revealed
Last Saturday, over on Arena of Valor’s discord, a staff member added a poll to gather players’ opinions on a possible new design for beloved assassin–warrior heroine, Butterfly. This deadly lady is a fan-favorite among AoV players along with Airi, despite not performing as well in our current Hero Tier List .
Should the vote pass, we may get to see this new design rolling out into servers very soon. Now, for a design analysis from your local artist in the brush!
The Old or the New?
Now let’s begin with a brief look at the two designs laid out below. The new design not only fits her more than the old design, but it also shows how much she has grown as a character. Her first design showed her as a budding assassin who only recently started to get confident in her skills. The pigtails and gentle demeanor both reflected this lack of maturation.
Meanwhile the new design reflects her self-confidence, having a sleek, accomplished approach to her profession of an assassin. Her previous attire is cluttered and would realistically hinder her work whereas the newer design would allow for quicker movement and, as a result, allow her to avoid detection from her enemies and achieve quicker kills.

Of course this is all from a story and an artist’s point of view. In game, this would simply be cosmetic, but it would still be a refreshing sight shouldn the changes happen. It additionally would show a lot of progress, given that Butterfly has been one of the main faces of Arena of Valor.
So in conclusion? We can’t wait to see this design implemented. As for players who love her design as is, we’d like to raise the idea of making it a free skin for all to help avoid any complaints.
What about you guys? Send in your thoughts and why you love the old or new design of Butterfly! Be sure to cast your vote in the Butterfly Redesign Poll if you want a higher chance of having this new design in the game.
