  • In general, Legends come in one of three sizes (small, medium, large). Fortified.svg Fortified compensates for having a large hitbox. Low Profile.svg Low Profile countered the advantages of a small hitbox.[1] Daniel Z Klein described them as "chewing gum and duct tape holding the game together."[2] In Season 9.svg Season 9, Low Profile was removed as the team felt confident they could balance small Legends without it.
    • Pathfinder had Low Profile despite not having a small hitbox because he was very thin (at the time) and had a lot of mobility.[3][4] Revenant accidentally shipped with Low Profile despite not having a small hitbox because he had Pathfinder's skinny (at the time) hitbox earlier in development.[5]
