Trivia

  • Aatrox was designed by Classick.[1]
  • Aatrox's voice over is provided by Erik Ireland.
  • Aatrox's name comes from the Latin word atrox, meaning fierce, savage and cruel. The English word atrocity comes from the word atrox.
    • The word atrox is also derived from ater meaning dark, which may be an influencing factor in naming his species Darkin.
  • Aatrox's lore is similar to Ares, the God of War in Greek mythology.
  • An Ancient Mystery In Runeterra, Aatrox's sneak peek, was posted under the name of EzrealSquare.png Ezreal, in a similar fashion to how Journey Into The Freljord, LissandraSquare.png Lissandra's sneak peek, was posted by QuinnSquare.png Quinn.
  • The nature of his blade bears a resemblance to the Soul Reaver from the Legacy of Kain series. Both appear to be living weapons and can consume the life force of their wielder and drain the life force of their enemies.
    • Additionally, the charged sound effect on his Blood Thirst ability, closely resembles the sound made by the Spirit Reaver form of the Soul Reaver.
  • Jax and Aatrox in fire
    A shadowy figure resembling Aatrox can be seen in DariusSquare.png Darius' classic splash art, as well as an updated version of JaxSquare.png Jax's classic splash art found on the beta version of LeagueOfLegends.com. While both shadowy figures resemble each other, there are enough differences between the figure and Aatrox that it could be another of the five darkin.
  • Aatrox is the fifth champion who uses health as a primary resource for casting abilities. The other four champions are DrMundoSquare.png Dr. Mundo, MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser, VladimirSquare.png Vladimir, and ZacSquare.png Zac.
  • Aatrox is the fifteenth champion that can increase their attack range. Aatrox's attacks remain melee.
  • Aatrox is one of the five remaining Darkin, an ancient race. Of the five, he is currently the only known Darkin. However, only three members of the Darkin race are known to history (including Aatrox).
  • Riot has stated the Aatrox was in some ways inspired by the Balrog and Sauron from The Lord of the Rings franchise, including his walk animation.[2]
  • When reaching a certain amount of movement speed, Aatrox's movement animation shows him gliding instead of running.
  • Enemies hit by Aatrox's Massacre.png Massacre will make a blood trail from themselves to Aatrox that he will rapidly absorb. This comes because when Aatrox was in early development on the PBE he would gain more attack speed based in how many enemies he had hit with Massacre. After his release, it was never changed and remained this way until today.
  • Aatrox seems to view the wars he causes as a form of art, as several of his quotes refer to the fights as "work" "masterpieces" and other synonyms for art.
  • When Aatrox uses his ultimate, you can faintly hear it no matter where you are on the map.
  • Aatrox is the third dark themed champion with a light themed skin, the first being VarusSquare.png Varus and the second being SyndraSquare.png Syndra.
    • Of these three, Aatrox is the only one not from Ionia.

Quotes

  • AatroxSquare.png Aatrox's quote "Rage against the dying of the light." is a direct reference to the poem "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas. An audio clip can be found here .
  • AatroxSquare.png Aatrox's quote "I know what lurks in the hearts of man" is a reference to the character The Shadow created by Walter B. Gibson - "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows..."
  • His quote "Peace is the greatest lie of all" could reference the Sith Code from Star Wars - "Peace is a lie, there is only passion...".
  • AatroxSquare.png Aatrox has two special quotes for TryndamereSquare.png Tryndamere, as a reference to his presence and influence in Tryndamere's lore.
  • AatroxSquare.png Aatrox's quote "Even those who have nothing can give their lives." is likely a reference to a similar line in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

Skins

AatroxSquare.png Justicar Aatrox [S|L]
  • He shares the Justicar theme with SyndraSquare.png Justicar Syndra.
  • This skin is meant to resemble Aatrox through the depictions of him by the people whom he saved.
AatroxSquare.png Mecha Aatrox [S|L]

Relations

  • AatroxSquare.png Aatrox is the dark figure alluded to in TryndamereSquare.png Tryndamere's new lore, who possessed a living weapon and inspired unhinged bloodlust into those who fought alongside him using unearthly magic. The information surrounding the Freljordian bone dagger and his quotes seems to also support this.
