What determines Ranged and Melee for items?

For items like Hurricane and Hydra, obviously. Is it the range? Like 400+ is Ranged? Or is it the way the things are wielded?

This came up when I did an AD Thresh for fun on ARAM. He has 475 Ranged, but he's technically a melee, since he's using a melee weapon?

I'm pretty sure anything over 200 is considered ranged

Every champion has a set of tags to their name. 2 tags you will find on any champ is either ranged or melee. That is what determines it.

Kusarigama is both a ranged weapon and a melee ranged weapon. The chain and ball is as much as a weapon as the scythe is.
