• Kog'Maw's dance references Michigan J. Frog from One Froggy Evening.
    • A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • Despite Icathian Surprise.png Icathian Surprise Kog'Maw does have a death animation (it can only be seen when he's being revived by Chronoshift.png Chronoshift or Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel)
  • Icathian Surprise.png Icathian Surprise is one of only three abilities that allow their casters to continue attacking after death, the others being Death Defied.png Death Defied and Glory in Death.png Glory in Death.
  • Kog'Maw is the only Void-related champion without 'Void' in his title.

  • Kog'Maw was the first champion to have a joke animation (the second being Miss Fortune Miss Fortune)

  • Kog'Maw might come from:
    • Proto-Germanic *kuggo "lump" > Old Norse kuggr > English cog[1] "a small boat, a tooth" [on a jagged wheel]
    • & *mago "stomach[2] > mouth", whence maw itself.
  • Kog'Maw's abilities ironically make no use of his spoken-of and downright-self-stated insatiable hunger.

  • For his joke he emulates the tune of Deck the Halls and, if he and SonaSquare.png Silent Night Sona [S|L] play their jokes while near each other, he will outright sing the carol while she provides the music.
