Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia



  •  Elise was designed by Coronach and Meddler.[1]
  •  Elise is voiced by Karen Strassman, who also voices  Cassiopeia,  Fiora,  Shyvana, and  Zyra.
  •  Elise's name is short for "Elizabeth" or "Elisabeth", which is the Greek translation of the Hebrew name "Elisheva", meaning "God's promise", the "oath of God" or "I am God’s daughter".
    • This is possibly a reference to her lore where she worships a mythical spider god.
  •  Elise currently holds the record for having the most movable pets on the Field, which is 5.
  •  Elise is the first champion to have a monologue during the log-in screen. The second being  Lissandra, the third being  Lucian, and the fourth being  Yasuo.
  •  Elise's dance is based off of the Can-Can, a dance featuring high kicks and provocative body movements. A side-by-side video of both her human and spider form can be seen here.
  •  Elise bears some resemblance to the goddess Lolth from Forgotten Realms who can also change spider and humanoid form
  •  Elise's Human form bears some resemblance to Black Arachnia, from the Transformers franchise.
  • The name Elise or 'Élise' come from a feminine name of French origin. In grammar, it means either 'elect', and 'vote. The word 'Elise' may be spelled as 'Elire', both of them have synonymous meanings.


  •  Elise shares a quote with  Cho'Gath: "Ah, the tangled webs we weave." Coincidentally, the quote is also shared with a spider-like unit from Blizzard's Warcraft 3, the Crypt Fiend
  •  Elise's quote, "I can feel their fear.", is similar to  Evelynn's quote, "I can smell their fear" and  Fiddlesticks's quote, "I feel your fear."


Teaser for Victorious Elise Skin
  •  Elise's Classic Spider form and general motif is based off the black widow spider, a popular species used in western culture to represent deadly female characters. This is mostly evident in her classic skin's general black and red color schemes and is most prominent in her spider form, where much like a black widow, her abdomen sports matching red markings.
  • The  Victorious Elise skin is a reward for players who achieve a Gold or higher ranking by the end of Season 3.

    •  Elise ,  Jayce and  Karma are the only three champions who can have 19 skill points allocated by level 18, because they get a level in their ultimate at level 1 for free.

Elise's Theme
"The Shadow Isles – They say they don't exist. Mythical islands haunted by ghosts and specters. Tales to frighten children. But I know better. I have been there. When I first set foot there I immediately knew something was wrong with that place. My skin crawled and in the pit of my stomach I felt a terrible revulsion. Life didn't belong there. But I also knew... somehow, deep inside I knew, that the islands welcomed me. They wanted me."

"As I wandered deeper I saw death all around me. Ghostly trees, grass and flowers engulfed me in their horrifying radiance. It was so quiet and so beautiful. I passed my hand through a spectral leaf fluttering in the wind; but there was no wind. That was when I understood that death was another world and I was at its door."

"Then I heard the song; the spider's song. My companion cried out in terror and fell to his knees. I embraced him. I told him he had nothing to fear. He was going to a better place. I will take them all to a better place."
