  • Ashe was designed by Ezreal and Guinsoo.
  • She is the protagonist champion of Howling Abyss, the tutorial map.
  • Ashe was the first champion to have a full rework of her Splash Arts.
  • Ashe is currently the only champion, as of late Season 3's champion classification, to be recognized as both a support and marksman champion.
  • Ashe's voice-over is done by Melissa Hutchison.[1].
  • One of Ashe's arrows can be seen shot through an apple in the Mac Version Launch of League of Legends.
    • Her bow is also seen in a later part of the video.
  • Ashe is the only champion to have exactly 1.0 scaling for both AD and AP on all her abilities with AD/AP ratios; her attack damage and ability power are added without multiplication to the damage output of her  Volley and  Enchanted Crystal Arrow, respectively.
    • Several champions like  Ezreal have 1.0 AD scaling, but has varying AP scaling, while other champions like  Veigar have 1.0 AP scaling but no AD scaling.
  • Ashe was one of the champions chosen for the Ionian pool available during the 2010 Ionian Versus Noxus Grudge Match. She was one of the selected champions.
  • Ashe's dance references to Alizee's J'en Ai Marre! dance. A side by side comparison can be seen here.
  • Ashe is possibly inspired by several Dota heroes.
    • Her appearance and her kit are somewhat similar to those of Traxex the Drow Ranger.
    • Ashe's ultimate is very similar to Mirana's Arrow skill, except that Ashe's arrow can travel across the whole map while Mirana has a shorter range and smaller hitbox.
  • Ashe's bow belonged to the ancient queen of Freljord, Avarosa.
  • Ashe and Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca from Final Fantasy XII shares similar name, both are princesses and then became the queen, use ranged weapons(Ashelia uses Hand-Bombs in the sequel; Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings) and both were once hunted to apprehend them from becoming a leader to their people.
  • There's an event between Ashe,  Sejuani, and  Lissandra that is similar to "The Hunt is On!", called, "Battle for Freljord". This makes it a 2nd event to happen in-game but not directly to the lore.


  • Ashe's joke, "No, really. Put that apple on your head!" is a reference to William Tell, specifically his apple-shot.
  • Ashe's quote to  Sejuani; "So, which one is the pig?", is a reference to the video, Rammus Taunts Everyone AGAIN.
  • Ashe currently holds the most number of taunts in the game. She has 3 default taunts and 3 special taunts for both  Sejuani and  Lissandra, combining a total of 9 taunts.


Classic Ashe

  • Ashe appears to be ambidextrous. In her Classic, Freljord, Sherwood Forest and Woad skins, she holds her bow in her left hand, but in her Queen, Amethyst, and Heartseeker skins, she holds her bow in her right hand.
  • The Chinese version of Ashe's original skin is the background image of the "Offense" section in the mastery pages.

Sherwood Forest Ashe

  • This skin is a reference to Robin Hood.
  • In all of her other skins, Ashe has blue eyes, but in her Sherwood Forest skin, she appears to have green eyes.

Woad Ashe

  • This skin references the medieval Picts tribes, also known as the "Woads".
  • Woad Ashe shares a theme with Woad King Darius and Woad Scout Quinn.
  • The Woad Ashe artwork bears a strong resemblance to Guinevere from the 2004 movie King Arthur.

Queen Ashe

  • This skin is a lore reference to her role as the leader of Freljord.

Amethyst Ashe

  • This is likely a reference to Amethystos, a maiden that was changed into amethyst in Greek mythology.
  • Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry.

Heartseeker Ashe

  • This skin is a tribute to Valentine's Day 2014.
  • Ashe shares the Heartseeker theme with  Vayne.
  • The background resembles the maze in Alice in Wonderland.
  • Charmed Tryndamere can be seen in the background.
  • Heartseeker Ashe is categorized as "Miscellaneous" when the champion skins are filtered by champion in the store.


  • Ashe is close friends with fellow League champions  Anivia and  Nunu.
    • After Ashe became the Queen of Freljord, she personally appointed Nunu as Freljord's League Emissary.
  • Ashe is married to  Tryndamere, though she states that this is not for romantic reasons but for political ones.
    • Based on the results of  Blitzcrank's "Fleshling Compatibility Services", Ashe and Tryndamere are considered a successful match for each other.
    • Outside the game, Ashe and Tryndamere's relationship is possibly a private Riot reference. Tryndamere is the nickname of their president, Marc Merrill, whose wife's name is Ashley (as revealed in this thread by Merrill).
  • Ashe and Tryndamere have struck a business partnership with  Gragas, selling him ownership of Freljord's Avarosa Iceflow glacier.
    • He had also, apparently, solved the problem of a unification of a lesser tribe with the Avarosan tribe by getting everyone drunk and drowning their troubles away.
  • Ashe is in direct conflict with  Sejuani, who opposes Ashe's claim as the Queen of Freljord.
    • Ashe is a distant relative to Sejuani as they both descended from two of the three legendary princesses, who were sisters to one another. Ashe descending from Avarosa while Sejuani from Serylda.
  • Ashe met with  Quinn and  Valor while the two were on a scouting expedition into Freljord.
    •  Valor likes her, which is rare.
  • Ashe and her people are allied with  Lissandra's, unaware to this day about her true identity as the Ice Witch.
    • Lissandra is one of the three legendary sisters, making her an ancient ancestor of hers.
  • The Lyte's quote to her; "You bear a striking resemblance to Avarosa!" hints at the possibility that Ashe is a direct descendant of hers.
    • This is further supported by the fact that Ashe was lead by a great hawk to Avarosa's grave where she found the true ice bow she now uses in the Fields of Justice.
