  • Classic Skin


  • Hecarim was designed by FeralPony.[1]
  • Hecarim is voiced by Scott McNeil , who also voices MaokaiSquare.png Maokai and SionSquare.png Sion (after the rework).
  • Hecarim is an anagram for "Chimera".
  • He started out as the ghost of a dead knight who could summon his spectral horse. By the time he was approved for production he had become an undead centaur-like being and all the concept art reflected that. He migrated to the Shadow Isles fairly early in development - Riot has been working behind the scenes to develop the idea of undeath in Valoran and they wanted Hecarim to be representative of the tone of the Shadow Isles.[2]
  • The visual effect designer for Hecarim's log-in screen was Anthony Possobon.
  • It has been a very, very long time since he was actually alive, but his form suggests that there may have been a race of centaur-like beings in the past. He hasn't retained any memories from his life and he doesn't particularly care about what he used to be.[3]
  • Hecarim represents Pride as one of the Seven deadly sins.
  • Hecarim is possibly inspired by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, particularly the rider symbolizing War. (The other horsemen theme champions to have been released so far are Karthus, Mordekaiser and Thresh.)
  • Hecarim may also be inspired by the Assault Rider from the Kingdom Hearts games. They share a very similar body shape, concept and moveset.
  • Hecarim's dance is a reference to the viral YouTube video "Dope Zebra" by rhettandlink. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • It is possible for Hecarim to get attack damage of over 1,000 with a combination of certain items, summoner spells, and ally buffs.
  • Warpath.png Warpath is the only ability that scales with movement speed.
  • Onslaught of Shadows.png Onslaught of Shadows may be a reference to The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, particularly the horseback fight with Ganondorf, who summons spectral riders during the fight.
  • In the U.R.F game mode (available in April 2014), Hecarim was deemed overpowered, and was ultimately disabled in non-custom games.
  • Hecarim's joke, "Suffering is magic," is a reference to the TV show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, created by Lauren Faust.
  • Hecarim's second joke, "Another blue ribbon for Hecarim," is a reference to the blue ribbon, a term used to describe something of high quality. They are often granted as an award to the winner of a contest showcasing horses or other livestock.
  • Hecarim shares a quote with Battlecast Prime Cho'Gath, "Crush them underfoot."

  • He is the last champion from season two to get 2 skins upon release.
  • The Chinese classic splash art for HecarimSquare.png Hecarim uses the pose on his concept art, with the only difference being the spear's blade overturned.

  • This skin resembles and has the same name as Vampire Counts Blood Knights from the Warhammer Universe.

HecarimSquare.png Arcade Hecarim [S|L]
  • This skin is heavily based on the popular Adult Swim mini-game Robot Unicorn Attack.
  • His halberd is a reference to the video game Guitar Hero.
  • The South American version of "Arcade Hecarim" skin was wrongly translated as "Hecarim of Arcadia" ("Hecarim de Arcadia"). Arcades in Spanish are either called "Arcades" or "Fichines", so it doesn't make sense in Spanish either.  It may be a nonsensical reference to "Lawrence of Arabia" ("Lawrance de Arabia").
  • He shares this theme with SonaSquare.png Sona, MissFortuneSquare.png Miss Fortune, and VeigarSquare.png Veigar.


  • Hecarim and MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser appear to know each other. They have similar beliefs, but apparently do not agree on the methods each uses to achieve their goals.
    • On the Twisted Treeline, the western Altar warns Hecarim that Mordekaiser is not to be trusted.
    • Despite this, however, the two are still listed as friends rather than rivals on the official League of Legends website.
  • Hecarim existed longer than YorickSquare.png Yorick. Hecarim's shape suggests that he might've been something that no longer even exists in Valoran, while Yorick can be recognized as human.[4]
  • On the League of Legends website, both Hecarim and ThreshSquare.png Thresh used to be listed as rivals with AhriSquare.png Ahri; this might be due to Ahri being a fellow harvester of souls which would interfere with the Shadow Isles' goals.
  • He is being hunted by KalistaSquare.png Kalista.
