  • Draven can catch the enemy team's Draven's spinning axe and gain the buff.

  • Draven is the only champion with a quote and effect made to specifically interact with himself. He emits a quote when he catches another Draven's axe.
  •  Draven's quote "Yoink" when catching another Draven's axe is probably a reference to Deadpool from marvel universe.

You should read the hints more often!" ;"According to lolesports.com, 100% of you think that Draven will win!". Strengthens this fact.
    • He is, furthermore, the first champion to address a living person: "Sjokz better interview me after this.".

DravenSquare.png Gladiator Draven [S|L]
  • Prior to the information of the Gladiator skin leaked from public beta, a similar skin concept for Draven, "Firedancer", has been published by the player Spookypatrol (deviantART user "Dargonite") in the official North American forum. Five Riot employees expressed interest to the idea in two separate threads.[2]
    • The skin is also used to celebrate the Italian localization of the client, 24 March 2013.
  • The DravenSquare.png Gladiator skin possesses 3 special quotes available only in Italian which are references to the movie "Gladiator".
    • "Al mio segnale,scatenate Draven!" which can be translated to "At my signal, unleash Draven!"
    • "Date a Draven ciò che è di Draven... E anche tutto il resto!" which means "Give Draven what Draven owns... and everything else.", based on the popular sentence "Give Caesar what Caesar owns."

DravenSquare.png Primetime Draven [S|L]
  • You can see him in the SKT T1 Skins.

  • Including the champion selection quote, DravenSquare.png Primetime Draven [S|L] says "Draven" 53 times throughout all of his vocal lines.
  • This skin was initially going to be a Legendary skin (because of the new animations, voice over and such) but Riot will release it permanently for 975 RP, similar to FiddlesticksSquare.png Surprise Party Fiddlesticks.


  • Draven is DariusSquare.png Darius' younger brother. The two together were known as "The Blood Brothers",
    • The use of Blood Brothers in this context is no relation to the common usage, which is where two non-related males perform a "blood pact".
    • The term "The Blood Brothers" was likely used due to them both utilizing bleed damage. However, the significance of the term was diminished when Wicked Blades, Draven's old passive, was removed and replaced with his current one.
  • According to his page on the beta League of Legends website, Draven's relations list him as friends with himself.
