  • Akali's dance references Single Ladies by Beyoncé.
    • A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • Akali is currently the only Energy-based champion to have any associated cost on their Shadow Dance.png ultimate (one Essence of Shadow)
  • In Japanese, Akali is read as 明 ('Akari') which means 'light, bright, cheerful', a contrast to her title of 'the Fist of Shadow'.
    • In Sikhism, Akali is a word used to refer to someone/something as 'divine'.
  • Shadow Dance.png Shadow Dance was going to be a skillshot but became single-targeted.


  • Akali's joke references (albeit in a rather tongue-in-cheek fashion) 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.
    • She is one of the few champions to say 'noob'.
      • Before his relaunch Sion Sion was another one.
  • Akali.move4

  • Akali, Kennen Kennen, and Shen Shen are members of the Kinkou Order. The three shadow warriors work together in order to preserve balance in Valoran.
    • Akali and her fellow ninjas are at war with Zed Zed and his Order of Shadows.
      • Akali may have another, more personal connection with Zed Zed... perhaps she is a former member of the Order of Shadows?
        • Devon 'Runaan' Giehl pointed out her title of 'the Fist of Shadow' and her passive Twin Disciplines.png Twin Disciplines, and mentioned that Zed once had a favorite student who left his order, but there was no official statement.[2]
          • It is also mentioned that despite appearances, she has a capacity for violence and cruelty.[3]
            • Despite (or perhaps in some way due to) all of this, Akali is apparently the least willing of the Kinkou triumvirate to forgive Zed in any way. She believes only death is deserving of him, in contrast to Kennen Kennen believing redemption is still possible and Shen Shen being undecided in lieu of his duty towards exercising emotionless, unbiased judgement.
