  • In his Chinese artwork, Alistar has four fingers despite his model only having three.

      • This is corrected in the Matador, Unchained, Longhorn and Chinese Golden art.

  • In early 2012, Alistar's NA Classic artwork was replaced with the Chinese one, together with Fiddlesticks Fiddlesticks, Galio Galio, and Malzahar Malzahar. These were the first in a long line of many champions to get new art on future patches.
