General

Development

  • Anivia is one of only three champions to have had her voiceover changed twice, the others being Ashe Ashe and Katarina Katarina.
  • Anivia is derived from the Latin adjective nivea (nomivative & vocative feminine singular derivatives of niveus) "snowy, snow white".
  • Cryophoenix combines Greek Cryo κρύος "cold" and Phoenix, a fiery solar bird who cyclically resurrects from its own ashes, inspiring her Rebirth.png Rebirth, from Afroasiatic mythology; cf. Egyptian Bennu, who likewise cyclically renews himself.

  • This skin depicts the aftermath of the Freljord Civil War if the ProfileIcon0548 Frostguard Frostguard win. Their victory further spreads Lissandra Lissandra's corruption of True Ice and, as a result, Anivia succumbs to it due to her elemental nature and tie to the Freljord.
  • She strongly resembles the demon Black Frost, the darkened variant of the snow fairy Jack Frost from Shin Megami Tensei, going so far as to having closely matched color schemes.

Relations

  • Anivia has formed a close friendship with both Nunu Nunu (and by extension Willump Willump) and the ProfileIcon0546 Avarosan Avarosan leader Ashe Ashe.
  • ProfileIcon0575 Iceborn Keeper Gregor says he 'remembers Anivia's sacrifice', which might mean she died during the Iceborn uprising in the Howling Abyss.
  • It was Anivia who froze Gnar Gnar in True Ice so as to preserve him until the Frozen Watchers finally return.[3]
