Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


  • Classic skin
  • Dynasty Ahri
  • Midnight Ahri


  • Ahri is inspired by the Nine-tailed fox - a mythological being originating from East Asia, and has become a recurring creature in modern fantasy.
  • Ahri was designed by Ezreal, although Coronach helped him develop her kit.[3]
    • There were several different names for the Nine-Tailed Fox throughout development: Ezreal himself referred to the Nine-Tails as Gumiho (구미호).[4] The more common name Kumiho is a direct reference to the Nine-tailed fox from Korean mythology. A player found a poll for her name on the Riot Korea webpage,[5] which gave 6 different options to vote for:
      • Danbi (단비) (meaning Saviour or Saving Rain)
      • Nabi (나비) (meaning Butterfly)
      • Ruri (루리) (meaning Dazzle)
      • Ari (아리) (meaning Graceful or Elegant)
      • Chorong (초롱) (meaning Glittering)
      • Dasom (다솜) (meaning Loving).
  • Ahri is voiced by Laura Post.
  • Ahri was simultaneously released (on all servers) with the launch of the Korean servers.
  • Ahri's dance is based on the choreography for the song Run Devil Run by Girls' Generation (소녀시대; So Nyeo Shi Dae/SNSD), an extremely popular Korean girl group. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
    • Interestingly enough, this girl group consists out of nine members, which could be a reference to Ahri's title (the Nine-Tailed Fox).
  •  Essence Theft, previously shared its name with  Nasus' passive -  Soul Eater. The name was changed in a minor patch shortly after her release.
    • In the Champion Spotlight, Phreak refers to her passive as "Soul Eater".
  • Ahri's final design has fox ears, whereas her original design did not. Her clothes were also changed.
  • Her title on the League of Legends site is displayed as "the 9 Tails Fox",[6] while in-game and spotlight are both "the Nine-Tailed Fox". The latter title is grammatically correct.
    • This has been fixed on the website.


  • Ahri's hairstyle in her main skin is a fish tailed braid. She shares this trait with Lissandra.
  • Dynasty Ahri is wearing modernized Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing).
    • Additionally, this skin changes her dance to a traditional Korean dance.
  • Foxfire Ahri is a reference to the Mozilla Firefox browser as she bears the same color scheme of the browser's icon in her splash art background.
  • Popstar Ahri is a reference to the Korean Pop group, Girls' Generation. Her outfit, splash art background, dance, and recall animations bear similarity to their 2009 single, "Genie".
    • The skin was announced on November 5th, 2013, which coincided with Girls' Generation's release of their single, "My Oh My". A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
    • This is Ahri's first splash art in which her  Orb of Deception is not displayed.


  • Some sources hint Ahri having a friendship with  Wukong. This is confirmed by the League of Legends website.
