Trivia

Development

  • If Rocket Grab.png Rocket Grab is cast and Blitzcrank moves, his hand will disappear as it has not been retracted yet.
  • Blitzcrank's name consists of 'Blitz', a German word for lightning, and 'crank', an English word denoting turning parts of machinery, starting-levers in particular.
Lore
  • In the lore Blitzcrank runs a dating service called "Blitzcrank's Fleshling Compatibility Services."
  • Blitzcrank's lore is similar to that of the Bicentennial Man, a movie based on a short story by Isaac Asimov, where the main character is a sentient robot played by Robin Williams.
General
  • Though Blitzcrank uses his right arm for Rocket Grab.png Rocket Grab, the picture used for it displays his left hand.

Quotes
  • BlitzcrankSquare.png Blitzcrank's quote, "Exterminate" is a reference to the popular villains in Doctor Who, The Daleks.
    • This may also be a reference to Evil Robots in movies, who have a tendency to say "Exterminate".
  • The quote: "A rolling golem gathers no rust" is derived from the adage "A rolling stone gathers no moss".

  • It is the only non-limited edition event skins to be removed from the store, ostensibly because of low quality, as it was almost identical to his basic skin.

  • It was the first skin presented by GANK Industries, though that information was classified until April 2.
  • His license plate reads "BLITZY1".
BlitzcrankSquare.png Boom Boom Blitzcrank [S|L]

BlitzcrankSquare.png Goalkeeper Blitzcrank [S|L]
