  • Classic Skin
  • Caterpillar Kog'Maw
  • Sonoran Kog'Maw
  • Lion Dance Kog'Maw


  • Kog'Maw was designed by Ezreal.
  • Kog'Maw is voiced by Patrick Seitz, who also voices Renekton Renekton, and Lucian Lucian.
  • Kog'Maw was first spotted during the official Malzahar Malzahar announcement post. He can be seen in one of the screenshots.
  • Kog'Maw's name may be a reference to the Cebuano term "kogmo" which refers to hardened mucus in the nose.
    • The 'Maw' part also means an appetite; a stomach; the receptacle into which food is taken by swallowing.
    • Ironically, even though Kog'Maw's lore and a majority of his quotes speak of his "insatiable" hunger, every ability (except his passive) involves regurgitation.
  • His /dance is a tribute to Michigan J. Frog from the classic Warner Bros. short One Froggy Evening. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • When Kog'Maw is reviving (Zilean Zilean's Chrono Shift.png Chrono Shift or Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel), his passive does not proc, and his otherwise unused death animation will be shown.
  • Kog'Maw was one of the champions chosen for the Noxian pool available during the Ionia vs. Noxus match. He was not one of the selected champions however.
  • Kog'Maw is one of the five champions to have abilities which allow them to continue to attack after death. Kog'Maw's ability being Icathian Surprise.png Icathian Surprise and the others being Karthus Karthus's Death Defied.png Death Defied, Sion Sion's Glory in Death.png Glory in Death, Yorick Yorick's Omen of Death.png Omen of Death and Zyra Zyra's Rise of the Thorns.png Rise of the Thorns.
  • Kog'Maw is the only Void-related champion to not have the word "Void" in his title.
  • In his idle animation, Kog'Maw blinks one eye at a time. He will also perform a brief spin/dance that is different than his actual /dance emote sometimes. It is most likely meant to resemble a dog chasing his own tail.
  • Kog'Maw was the first champion to have a /joke animation. The second being MissFortuneSquare.png Miss Fortune.
  • According to Kog'Maw's 2nd /taunt line and the Journal of Justice Issue 2, another Void Champion may be on the way.
    • Due to the time passed, this information may be heavily outdated.
  • Kog'Maw's standard joke is similar to the bugle charge command.
  • The Reindeer Kog'Maw skin does a different /joke from his others. It will sing "Fa la la la la" and, paired with SonaSquare.png Silent Night Sona's /joke, will sing the song Deck the Halls.

  • In the background of his splash art, a Razorbeak Razorbeak, Chameleon and a Horned Rabbit can be seen. This indicates that Kog&#039;Maw Kog'Maw is located on Summoner's Rift.
    • Also, Kog'Maw is spitting out a helmet, one of which belongs to the fan favorite Helmet Bro.
KogMawSquare.png Monarch Kog'Maw [S|L]
  • This skin, while colored red and black in the splash art, actually appears gold and blue in-game.
KogMawSquare.png Caterpillar Kog'Maw [S|L]
  • In this skin's splash art, he is hunting a scarab in the US version, while he is hunting a butterfly on the Chinese one.

  • It is a reference to the traditional Chinese Lion dances, performed on the Lunar New Year.
  • The visuals of his autoattacks and ultimate are altered to display fireworks instead.
KogMawSquare.png Reindeer Kog'Maw [S|L]
  • He shares a duet with Silent Night Sona. If both are in a game together, doing /j will make them play "Deck the Halls".
  • He might have been inspired by Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
KogMawSquare.png Deep Sea Kog'Maw [S|L]
  • His skin is based on the Anglerfish, a fish that dwells in the deep sea.
  • He shares this theme with Cho&#039;Gath Cho'Gath, and Nami Nami.
KogMawSquare.png Jurassic Kog'Maw [S|L]
  • In the background of the splash art, the skeleton on the wall beside Kog'Maw bears resemblance to Omen Omen, a cancelled champion.
  • Also, on the left of Kog'Maw is one of the limbs of the ChoGathSquare.png Jurassic Cho'Gath Exhibit.
KogMawSquare.png Battlecast Kog'Maw [S|L]
  • This skin has been hinted at in several occasions.
    • The teasers included serial numbers that referenced this Battlecast skin, one of them referencing a "MAW".
    • At PAX 2013, IronStylus sketched an unofficial Battlecast-style version of Kog'Maw, using his classic art as a reference.[1]
    • ViktorSquare.png Creator Viktor's splash art features a silhouette that looks very similar to Kog'Maw.
  • He shares this theme with Viktor Viktor, Urgot Urgot, Cho&#039;Gath Cho'Gath, Vel&#039;Koz Vel'Koz, Xerath Xerath and Skarner Skarner.
