  • Darius was designed by CertainlyT.
  • Darius was voiced by Chuck Kourouklis
  • Darius' name derives from the Persian word "dariush", which means "kingly".
  • Darius was the name of a Persian king who was also called "Darius the Great".
  • Darius is the first champion to have a special animation while using Recall or Teleport in which he lifts his axe upward and looks up.
  • Darius and his brother  Draven are the first related champions to be released back to back. Coincidentally, they both have the same level of attack speed to indicate their brotherhood.
  • Darius is one of the 8 champions who do not have a single skill that scales off ability power; along with  Zed,  Draven,  Garen,  Olaf,  Riven,  Talon and  Vayne.

  • Darius shares a quote with  Quinn. "Stay alert."


Classic Darius

  • In his splash art, Beatrice ( Swain's raven) appears in the battlefield.
  • In Darius' classic splash art, a shadowy figure can be seen who resembles  Aatrox.
    • Though this can also be a regular Noxian soldier, as the ones illustrated in the Journal of Justice look very similar to the figure.


  • This skin gives off a green glow whenever he uses an ability.

Woad King Darius

Dunkmaster Darius

  • This skin is a reference to a community joke that Darius R makes him a Dunk slammer.
  • It changes his animations greatly, making him dribble a Basketball.
  • His recall is a reference to key Basketball hoop slams.

  • Darius'  Crippling Strike is referred to as "Hamstring" or "Noxian Tactics" in some cases within the game's files. 
  • There used to be a buff icon when Darius' movement speed was increased through  Hemorrhage, with the following text: "Aggression - The carnage of war enlivens Darius, increasing his movement speed."


  • Darius has formed an alliance with  Jericho Swain, the Master Tactician, seeing him as a leader with the mind and determination to bring Noxus to glory. With Swain, Darius works to unite the nation behind his vision of true Noxian strength. However, it is unknown whether Darius knows about Swain's past with the Black Rose organization.
  • Darius is  Draven's older brother. The two together were known as "The Blood Brothers".
