Makoa is a Front Line Champion in Paladins, added on August 4th, 2016.

Lore

Once the dedicated protector of the island home of the Ska'drin, the ancient Makoa has now been summoned to the mainland. In his absence, he fears that he cannot ensure the safety of the volcanic islands.

But with the greater threat in the Realm, he's taken to the land, to make sure those he protects have a home to return to. With him, he brings the ocean's fury and the tortoise's indomitable resilience, as well as various naval implements, to bear against those who would defile the natural world.

Summary

Makoa is a front line champion able to soak up large amounts of damage and a wide hitbox, making him ideal for defending his allies from enemy fire. His cannon shots are quite slow and have a steep drop off of trajectory and damage but can still be dangerous. Dredge Anchor allows Makoa to pull in enemy champions to leave them at the mercy of his teammates. Shell Shield spawns a large, round shield around Makoa for a duration, while Shell Spin allows him to quickly reposition himself even while his shield is active. Makoa's ultimate skill, Ancient Rage, will increase his maximum health, fully heal him and change his weapon shots for wide melee attacks that can hit multiple targets per swing, making it an ideal skill for turning the tides of battle around.

Trivia

  • Makoa obtained his anchor from Dredge's ship, as revealed here.
    • Despite this, in Talus' card Antediluvian, Makoa is shown as an ancient statue already wielding his anchor, despite the fact Judd was a mortal man prior to the events of Dark Tides.
  • Based on a dev statement revealing Viktor to be around 5'9 or 175cm tall, it was discovered that Makoa would be around 5'5 or 165cm tall.

  • He and Barik are voiced by the same voice actor.
  • For an unknown reason, Makoa is missing his ears in Paladins Strike, as can be seen here.
  • An Abyssal-themed skin for Makoa was concepted around the Rise of Furia event, but ultimately never materialized in-game. This skin can be viewed here.
  • In older versions of Paladins, there used to be a number of additional recolors of default champions. For Makoa, these recolors included the Aruba skin.
  • Having been present in the mobile game 'Paladins Strike', Makoa received unique skins exclusive to Strike. These skins include Armored Makoa and Lifeguard Makoa.

  • The line "I'm an expert on string theory, it's just a bunch of fluff." (▶️) references the theoretical framework of the same name.
  • The line "Ugh, I hate when teams turtle! It's insulting!" (▶️) references in-game turtling, a type of playstyle many find frustrating to play against.
  • The Plushy skin appears in the I WUV YOU avatar.
  • The Plushy skin is also the only skin or character to have ever been made into an official plush.[2]
  • These skins share their theme with Cuddly Moji.
