It is also the first dance to have the champion talk while dancing.
Draven's name and overall aesthetics is a possible reference to Kraven, the Hunter, from the Spiderman comics.
In his Champion Spotlight, Draven was not played by "Phreak" like the other champion spotlights.
When Draven recalls or teleports, he strikes a pose identical to Usain Bolt's signature pose.
When Draven strikes his recall pose, he points toward his respective summoner's platform or towards where he is teleporting.
Draven's backstory is possibly a combination of two famous executioners: Souflikar, a Turkish executioner who would challenge his victims to a race, and Richard Brandon, an English executioner who excited the crowd by killing his victims in a single blow.
Draven can catch the enemy team's Draven's spinning axe and gain the buff.
Darius and Draven both have the same attack speed to indicate their brotherhood.
If you recall or teleport while the Spinnig Axe buff is still active, the axe that was spinning at the time will still spin when Draven puts it on his back until the buff is gone.
Draven's death animation is likely a reference to the enigmatic ending of Cowboy Bebop in which the main character makes the same finger pistol notion as Draven and says "Bang" before collapsing, which Draven reproduces down to the thumb-hammer motion, which can be seen here.
If Draven attacks an enemy that isRecalling or Teleporting with a Spinning Axe, the axe will still return to draven at a hilariously fast pace.
The Soul Reaver skin bears a striking resemblance to the Turian Race from the Mass Effect series when seen ingame, especially the reaper converted Marauders.
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. Totally five Riot employees expressed interest to the idea in two separate threads.
The skin is also used to celebrate the Italian localization of the client, 24 March 2013.
The Gladiator skin possesses 3 special quotes available only in Italian which are references to the movie "The 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 tutto il resto!" which means "Give Draven what Draven owns... And everything else." , based on the popular sentence "Give Caesar what Caesar owns."
"Ciò che Draven fa in vita,riecheggia nell'eternità." that means "What Draven does in life, echoes through eternity."
