Awesomenauts Wiki

Back Story[ | ]

Leon's life is a life of crime, women, and borrowing without returning. He lost his arm in a unfortunate jeu de boules incident and spends most of his time smoothly escaping debt collectors. He found himself breaking into the bedroom of the prime minister's wife, while looking for the wine cellar.

He knew no amount of charm could save him this time and planned his escape, which was eventually delayed because he refused to escape in anything but a space yacht.

Leon joined the Awesomenauts for some quick cash, spending it on beautiful women and exquisite meals. In combat, he puts his natural reptile abilities to some good use and slices up his enemies with great precision. Combat is a form of art for this green gentleman.

Theme Song Lyrics[ | ]


Est ce que ne rien bonne?

Ah oui, mon coeur, c'est vrai

Qu'est-ce que ça, qu'est-ce que c'est?

Donnes moi ton argent

Donnes moi ton fromage

Je donne tout mon amour

Et j'allume ton chauffage"

Translation[ | ]


Is there nothing good?

Ah, yes, my heart, it's right

What is that, what is it?

Give me your money

Give me your cheese

I give you all my love

And I turn on your heater"

My name is Leon Legionnnaire, commander of the Armies of Aiguillon, connoisseur of fine cheese and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor: Blabus Zorkonius. Owner of a stolen space yacht, winner of the 3586 jeu de boules cup. I will claim my glory, in this battle or the next.

This DLC contains a custom skin for Leon in Awesomenauts.

Leon Legionnaire was designed by community member Lautaro Aglione for the Design-a-skin competition and was chosen by the community as one the runner-ups to Grim Genji from more than 250 submissions! - Official Steam Store description.

This skin gives Leon the typical Roman legionnaire attire: He has a gold/bronze (depending on team) galea on his head (with a team-colored decoration), and wears a white toga with a team-colored paludamentum around it. He also has gold/bronze colored greaves and shoulderplates to protect his legs and arm, and a team-colored cloak on his back. His arm-blade is replaced with a gladius (with unique slashing sound effects) and he wields a golden/bronze scutum with a rose insignia engraved in it in his hand.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Leon is one of the "original six" Awesomenauts that came with the game when it first launched, along with Clunk, Froggy G, Lonestar, Voltar and Yuri.
  • Leon was the first Awesomenaut to ever get a premium skin, Leon Pirate.
  • Leon's home planet, Aiguillon, is available as a playable map in the game.
  • Leon is one of the few 'nauts to have a Kickstarter exclusive skin (the other being Coco).
  • With five unique skins including the default one, Leon is tied with Coco and Lonestar for the most skins in the game.
    • On top of that, Leon and Coco have very similar skin layouts. They both have two premium skins, two regular skins, one kickstarter-exclusive skin, and one skin that won a contest.
  • Leon Legionnaire was part of the Awesomenauts Skin Contest 2014, where it won second place. It was designed by Lautaro Aglione. The original concept art can be seen below:
