  • Ahri was designed by Ezreal, although Coronach helped him develop her kit.[1]
    • There were several different names for the Nine-Tailed Fox throughout development: Ezreal himself referred to the Nine-Tails as Gumiho (구미호).[2] 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,[3] 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 is inspired by the nine-tailed fox - a mythological being originating from East Asia, and has become a recurring creature in modern fantasy.
  • Ahri's design and the design for Vulpix or Ninetales from the Pokémon series come from similar origins (myths about nine-tailed foxes exist in both Korean and Japanese culture)
  • Her name is an anagram of word "Hair".
  • Ahri was simultaneously released (on all servers) with the launch of the Korean servers.
  • Ahri's final design has fox ears, whereas her original design did not. Her clothes were also changed.
    • In Spirit Rush's portrait, it still shows her original design.
  • 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.
  • Essence Theft.png Essence Theft, previously shared its name with NasusSquare.png Nasus' passive - Soul Eater.png 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".
  • Her title on the League of Legends site is displayed as "the 9 Tails Fox" while in-game and spotlight are both "the Nine-Tailed Fox". The latter title is grammatically correct.
    • This has been fixed on the website.
  • In the League of Legends cinematic A New Dawn, Ahri is portrayed with blue eyes, whereas her splash arts and in game models show her with yellow-brown eyes.
  • As shown in-game and in "A New Dawn", Ahri can "bunch up" her tails at will, like when she moves.
    • Ahri always runs with one tail, and in "A New Dawn", she would use all her tails when dashing, but only one in-game.

  • In this skin, she is wearing a modernized Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing).
  • Additionally, this skin changes her dance to a traditional Korean dance.
AhriSquare.png Foxfire Ahri [S|L]
AhriSquare.png Popstar Ahri [S|L]
  • This skin 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 AhriSquare.png Ahri's first splash art in which her Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception is not displayed.
  • If AhriSquare.png Popstar Ahri dances near the Blue SentinelSquare.png Blue Sentinel it will dance .
AhriSquare.png Challenger Ahri [S|L]
  • This skin was initially called Dauntless, but it was changed due to not fitting with the theme of the skin.
  • Challenger is the antithesis of Championship. For example, ShyvanaSquare.png Championship Shyvana celebrates the end of the season, AhriSquare.png Challenger Ahri celebrates the start of the season.[4]


  • Some sources hint Ahri having a friendship with WukongSquare.png Wukong. This is confirmed by the League of Legends website.
  • On the League of Legends website, Ahri used to be listed as rivals with ThreshSquare.png Thresh and HecarimSquare.png Hecarim; this might be due to Ahri being a fellow harvester of souls which would interfere with the Shadow Isles' goals. However, this relation never appeared on Ahri's page.
