Trivia

  • Irelia was designed by Ezreal.
  • The floating object behind her head is the "Mantle of Decorum", which is Ionia's highest decoration.
  • Irelia's swords stab her as she dies. Whether Irelia does this out of honor or due to losing control of her blades is up to debate.
  • Irelia bears a resemblance to Melia Antiqua, a character from Xenoblade Chronicles who has a similar outfit as well as hair color.
  • Irelia was one of the champions chosen for the Ionian pool available during the 2010 Ionian Versus Noxus Grudge Match. However, she was not one of the selected champions.
  • It has been hinted that Irelia's brother Zelos is possibly being made into a champion and is currently in development.
  • Irelia has the highest potential tenacity stat in the game, capped at 64.9%: 40% from her Ionian Fervor.png passive (granted at least 3 enemy champions are within her sight); 15% from the Tenacious mastery s4.png Tenacious mastery, and 35% from any tenacity item in the game, after being calculated with diminishing returns.
    • Previously, ZacSquare.png Zac could achieve 86.18% tenacity, the highest, while using Let's Bounce!.png Let's Bounce!, Tenacious mastery s3.png Tenacious and 35% from tenacity items in-game. This is no longer possible, however, due to the fact that the tenacity boost from Zac's ultimate has been removed.
  • Irelia is the focus of a LoL meme "better nerf Irelia", in which Morello determines that a certain champion is currently overpowered, but chooses instead to nerf Irelia, due to his numerous alterations to her skillset.
    • Irelia received nerfs one day before her release because Morello said she was too "annoying to play against."
  • ricklessabandon stated that Irelia is somewhat similar to a lich, and her weapon acts as her phylactery. [1]
  • The naming of her style, "Hiten Style", her backstory, and Xypherous' confirmation show Irelia is based on Kenshin Himura of Rurouni Kenshin. [2]

Quotes

  • Her French jokes are references to the character of Brice de Nice from the eponymous French film.
  • Her joke "My blade is not only precise, but totally gnarly" references that she rides her weapon like a surfboard and "gnarly" being a term used by most surfers to tell if something is cool or good.
  • IreliaSquare.png Irelia shares two quotes with GarenSquare.png Garen: "Forge Onward." and "I will not falter."
  • IreliaSquare.png Irelia shares a quote with EzrealSquare.png EzrealAnnieSquare.png AnnieThreshSquare.png Thresh, and EvelynnSquare.png Evelynn: "This way."
  • Irelia shares a quote with Lucian: "It ends here."

Skins

IreliaSquare.png Aviator Irelia [S|L]
  • It is a reference to Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
IreliaSquare.png Nightblade Irelia [S|L]
  • The splash art is similar to the Assassin's Creed 2 cover, both Ezio and Irelia bearing the hidden blade on both of their arms and making the same stance.
  • She bares similarities to Marvel Comic's character "Blackwidow" due to the black outfit and red belt buckle. 
  • She also shares a striking resemblance to AkaliSquare.png Silverfang Akali in design.

Relations

  • SorakaSquare.png Soraka was responsible for reviving a nearly deceased Irelia during the Noxian invasion of Ionia.
