  • Cho'Gath was designed by Ezreal and Guinsoo.
  • Cho'Gath's name is likely derived from "Shoggoth", an artificial lifeform created on Earth by the Elder Things to be their all-purpose slave race, which were first mentioned at H.P. Lovecraft's sonnet cycle, Fungi from Yuggoth; but fully appearing on his novel At the Mountains of Madness.
    • Curiously, the meaning of the Shoggoth's name in H.P. Lovecraft's fictional language, R'lyehian, would mean "Native of the Realm of Darkness".
  • Another possibility is that Cho'Gath's name is derived from "Ku'Gath" a daemon in the Warhammer 40K universe. Cho'Gath and Ku'Gath share similar names, both come from an other worldly dimension (the Void and the Warp respectively), and both are large, monstrous beings. From the same universe, Cho'Gath quite closely resembles a Carnifex, a Tyranid creature.
  • Cho'gath's name is also very similar to that of Leon Czolgosz (pronounced Chogash), the infamous radical who assassinated U.S. President William McKinley.
  • Cho'Gath is the first champion to receive a second legendary skin, though Corki Corki has two skins priced 1820 one is only a limited skin.
  • Cho'Gath's dance is the same as Mickey Mouse's dance in Disney's Fantasmic! show at Disneyland.
  • Cho'Gath ties for 6th highest base damage at level 18.
  • Before season 3, the icon used to indicate the Tenacity stat on champions is the same icon of his Vorpal Spikes.png Vorpal Spikes icon.
  • Cho'Gath's icon for Feast.png Feast shows an inner maw, similar to that of the aliens/xenomorphs from the Alien film franchise.
  • Cho'Gath may be inspired by the popular Japanese movies series, Godzilla, as Cho'Gath bears similarities to Destroyah's first form.
  • Cho'Gath bears a resemblance to Malebogia and Violator from the Spawn franchise.
  • Riot created a flash minigame called Cho'Gath Eats the World for April Fool's Day.
  • Cho'Gath is the only Voidborn with a name containing more than six letters.
  • On Cho'Gath's game information page, the background photo is of his Chinese Classic skin art.
  • Note that if a red mark appears underneath a champion,it means that Cho&#039;Gath Cho'Gath's Feast.png Feast will kill them.

  • "Ah, the tangled webs we weave..." is a reference to a similar line from the epic poem Marmion, written by the Scottish poet and author Sir Walter Scott.
    • Cho'Gath shares this quote with EliseSquare.png Elise.
  • When Cho'Gath uses his Feast.png Feast, he will sometimes exclaim, "Omnomnomnom." This is a direct reference to the Cookie Monster, a character from the kids' show, Sesame Street.

  • His quote, "Maximum Cho'Gath," is likely a reference to the Crysis series.
  • His quote, "Blue screen resolved." is a reference to the Blue Screen Of Death.
  • He shares a quote with HecarimSquare.png Hecarim: "Crush them underfoot."

  • His clothing and voice are supposed to represent gentlemen from the 19th century.
  • This skin was the first champion skin ever to feature a voice-over change.
  • Gentleman Cho'Gath has a personal section on the Latin America server, where he discusses—in extremely old-fashonied and correct Spanish—the use of proper words in League of Legends. He warns players away from slang derived from rough English-Spanish translations. For example, "ganking" is referred to as the slangy "gankear" and Gentleman Cho'Gath indicates that the correct term should be "emboscar".
  • He shares this theme with NasusSquare.png Nasus and Gnar.

For reference, 451 Exawatts is almost 2600 times the power Earth receives from the Sun. In 1 second, it releases more energy than 2000 Tsar Bombas, the most powerful nuclear device in history, or 100 gigatons of TNT.
