2010 Winter Games Celebration
Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


  • Classic Skin
  • Team Spirit Anivia
  • Bird of Prey Anivia
  • Noxus Hunter Anivia


  • The name Anivia is derived from Latin niveus/nivea/niveum, meaning "Snow White".
  • Anivia was designed by Brackhar.
  • Anivia might have been inspired by Articuno from the Pokemon Franchise as both have mutual similarities.
  • Anivia's dance is the Chicken Dance. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here .
  • The quote at the end of  Anivia's lore alludes to the Robert Frost poem Fire and Ice.
  • "Cryophoenix" is derived from two words: "Cryo" and "Phoenix". Cryo from the Greek word cryos meaning "cold", while the "phoenix" is a mythic creature with the power to reincarnate itself from its own ashes; the classic phoenix being a birdlike creature that is partially on fire.
  • If Anivia types in chat while she is in egg form, instead of saying "Anivia" after the player's name, it will say "Eggnivia" instead.
  • Anivia is one of only two champions to have had her in-game voice changed twice. The other is  Katarina.
    • Her first voice over made her sound more aggressive. A video containing it can be seen here .
    • Her second voice over was the calmest of the three, and can be heard here .
  • Anivia's profile page splash art in the new beta site for League of Legends shows her Chinese art. This might hint that Riot is planning to replace her current splash art with the Chinese art.[1]
  • Anivia is the only non-humanoid champion that is female. ( Elise,  Shyvana and  Nidalee have human forms).


  • Blackfrost Anivia shares a quote with Traditional Sejuani; "To the bitter end".
  • Blackfrost Anivia's quote "The abyss speaks through me." is similar to Karma's quote "Ionia speaks through me."
  • Blackfrost Anivia's quote ""I hear whispers beneath the ice." is likely referencing the Frozen Watchers.


Team Spirit Anivia

  • It is a reference to the 2010 Winter games.
  • Her wings are the color of Blue and Red, like the French flag.

Bird of Prey Anivia

Hextech Anivia

Blackfrost Anivia

  • The theme behind Anivia's legendary Blackfrost skin is one of the possible outcomes of the upcoming Freljord War. In this alternative future, Anivia failed to defeat the  evil that was corrupting the ice and Anivia succumbed to its poison.
  • She bears strong resemblance to the demon Black Frost from the Shin Megami Tensei series, as he is the darkened variant of the snow fairy Jack Frost and also shares the purple and black colors of this skin.[2]


  • Anivia has formed a close friendship with a few League champions:  Nunu and his yeti, Willump, as well as  Ashe, the Queen of Freljord.
  • Anivia has a nest on the northern slopes of Ironspike Mountains.
  • Greyor mentioned about a sacrifice Anivia had done. She had probably died during the War of the Howling Abyss.
