  • Akali was designed by Coronach.
  • Akali is voiced by Laura Bailey.
  • In Japanese, Akali is read as Akari (明), which means "Light, Bright, Cheerful," contrasting to her title, "The Fist of Shadow".
    • In Sikhism, Akali is a word that is used for referring to someone or something that is "Divine".
  • Akali Akali's Shadow Dance.png Shadow Dance, was originally a skill shot rather than the point-and-click skill.
  • AkaliSquare.png Akali's joke is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the criticism towards the matchmaking system, often matching up teams of wildly varying levels, causing lower-leveled players to be swiftly defeated by higher-level ones.
  • AkaliSquare.png Akali is one of the only champions that says the word "noob".
    • Before his relaunch, Sion Sion was another one.
  • AkaliSquare.png Akali's quote: "Tread lightly." is similar to ShenSquare.png Shen's quote: "Tread carefully."

  • She resembles the main character from Quentin Tarantino's movie, Kill Bill, hence her blood spattered yellow clothing and weapons.
  • It is likely a reference to Scorpion from the aforementioned Mortal Kombat, as her costume and color scheme are similar, as well as the fact that scorpions have stingers.

  • Akali is a member of the Kinkou Order along with Kennen Kennen and Shen Shen. The three shadow warriors work together in order to preserve the balance in Valoran.
  • Akali and her fellow ninjas are at war with Zed Zed and his Order of Shadows.
  • During a contagion outbreak at the Institute of War, Akali volunteered as a nurse and can be seen administering a mandatory shot to Amumu Amumu.[1]
  • Akali may have another, more personal connection with Zed Zed. Perhaps she is a former member of Order of Shadows - RiotRunaan pointed out her title (the Fist of Shadow) and passive Twin Disciplines.png Twin Disciplines, and mentioned that Zed once had a favourite student who left his Order, but there was no official statement.[2] It is also mentioned that despite appearances, she has capacity for violence and cruelty.[3]
    • Despite this, or perhaps in some way due to it, Akali is apparently the least disposed of the Kinkou triumvirate towards forgiving Zed in any way, believing that only death is suitable for him, in contrast with Kennen Kennen, who believes that there is a possibility for Zed to be redeemed (while Shen Shen is undecided).
