Trivia

  • Kog'Maw was designed by Ezreal.
  • Kog'Maw is voiced by Patrick Seitz, who also voices RenektonSquare.png Renekton, RengarSquare.png Rengar and LucianSquare.png Lucian.
  • Kog'Maw was first spotted during the official MalzaharSquare.png Malzahar announcement post. He can be seen in one of the screenshots.
  • Kog'Maw's name may be 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 (ZileanSquare.png 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 KarthusSquare.png Karthus's Death Defied.png Death Defied, SionSquare.png Sion's Glory in Death.png Glory in Death, YorickSquare.png Yorick's Omen of Death.png Omen of Death and ZyraSquare.png 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.

Quotes

  • 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    • Due to the time passed, this information may be heavily outdated.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.
