  • Annie & Tibbers' names respectively come from a Riot Games Inc. Gameplay Producer's girlfriend and her favorite teddy bear.
  • Annie and her title of 'the Dark Child' draw inspiration from several sources:
    • Annie derives from Hebrew חַנָּה Ħannāh, from Semitic noun Ħann-at "grace",[3][4] shared with VayneSquare Shauna Vayne & possibly ShyvanaSquare Shyvana.
    • The conflict between Annie & her step-mother Leanna parodies the Wicked Stepmother trope, though observers could empathize with Leanna's rancor at Annie, whom Leanna blamed for the deaths of Leanna's daughter Daisy & Annie's father Gregori.
    • Annie & Tibbers may reference the folk-tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
    • Her fire powers and bear-themed clothing might have been inspired by Frederica Tenjuin from Psyren.


  • Tibbers lost button eye was due to an incident where Annie lost her step-sister, Daisy.
  • Her current apparance was due to an unknown adopted family that lived around the Ironspike Mountain regions of Noxus.


  • Annie's joke may be based on Ralph Wiggum's nonsensical manner of speech from The Simpsons.
    "I'm rubber and you're... on fire!" references the first line of the popular children's rhyme 'I'm rubber, you're glue'.
    "Let's count to five!" references her passive Pyromania Pyromania and how after using four abilities the fifth use will stun a target.
    "Eeny, meeny, miny, burn!" references the children's counting rhyme 'Eeny, meeny, miny, moe'.
    • In the Latin American server, it was changed to "¿Onta bebé?, aquí está. Fuego" ('Where's the baby? There he is. Fire') referencing Diego from Ice Age.
      • In V3.10, it was changed yet again to "De tin marín de do, te quemé" ('De tin marín de do, I burned you') referencing the children's counting rhyme De tin marín de do pingüe...
    "Ashes, ashes, they all fall down" references the American version of the nursery rhyme Ring a Ring o' Roses.
    • In the Latin American server, V3.10 changed it to "Sol, solecito, quémense un poquito" ('Sun, sun, burn you a little bit') partially referencing a children's song.
  • Annie, EzrealSquare Ezreal, EvelynnSquare Evelynn, IreliaSquare Irelia, and ThreshSquare Thresh all share the quote This way.
    "Beaten by a little girl... ha!" may be referencing Dracula's statement when defeated by 12-year-old Maria in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood.
    "Come out, come out, wherever you are!" references The Wizard of Oz.

    • At one point she was to be bundled to celebrate her visual update (coupled with the fact the Collector's Edition was outdated) yet it never happened and as a result she became the first skin sale to ever be denied to the public.
  • Her Chinese artwork might have influenced her visual update.
    • Her International Updated splash art was further updated to the Chinese version. Previously she had a much more AnnieSquare grim expression [S|L] where currently she has a more cheerful one. The Chinese edited version is a direct reference to the old Chinese splash art.
  • She shares this theme with:
Annie RedRidingCircle Red Riding Annie [S|L]
Annie AnnieinWonderlandCircle Annie in Wonderland [S|L]
  • She references Alice in Wonderland (Annie is dressed as the titular Alice and Tibbers as the White Rabbit)
  • This skin was a response to the player request to have Tibbers with a different appearance. It was classified as Legendary back when it was released, but features present in today's Legendary skins (modified ability particles, different emote or recall animation, new voiceover, etc.) are absent from this one.

  • In Annie's current lore, Gregori's epithet is shortened to "the Gray" and Amoline is now just called "a witch".
  • Tibbers was hand-crafted by Annie's mother, with the mythical Shadow Bears as a template, and is the only memento she has of her. She uses it as a focus for her pyromancy to bring Tibbers to life[6] as opposed to the previous lore when he was just a Shadow Bear whom Annie herself enthralled.
  • Annie's stepmother is named Leeana and her stepsister is named Daisy just like the Daisy! Sentinel IvernSquare Ivern summons. It is unknown if these two are related or not.
