Trivia

Development
  • Miss Fortune was designed by Geeves.
Lore
  • MissFortuneSquare.png Miss Fortune's full name is Sarah Fortune. She took the name of Miss Fortune as the name that would bring any pirate on her list, misfortune.
    • This relates to the old sailor myth that women on ships were bad luck.
  • In Act 3 of Burning Tides, it has been revealed that MissFortuneSquare.png Miss Fortune's personal ship is called The Syren.
    • Her first shipmate is called Rafen.
  • She was the beloved daughter of a renowned gun-dame who lived peacefully at her isolated island workshop. Young Sarah helped her mother in the forge, filing wheel locks, calibrating trigger pulls, or casting custom pistol shot.
    • The guns she currently possesses are the ones her mother specifically made for GangplankSquare.png Gangplank. After a disagreement, Gangplank used those guns to shoot both of Sarah's parents. Left in the rubble of her home with only the two guns in her arms, she swore she would take revenge upon what Gangplank had done.
  • Miss Fortune's origins, as revealed in her expanded lore during the Burning Tides event, strongly resembles the background of Inigo Montoya, a central character in The Princess Bride. Inigo's father and Miss Fortune's mother were expert weaponsmiths, commissioned to create a unique weapon for a prospective buyer. Finishing their work a whole year later, both smiths decide the weapons are too good for the likes of the buyer, and are struck down by him in cold blood. The buyer injures the smith's child, and in his pride, leaves the weapons untouched. The child survives, though with physical and emotional scars, and dedicates their life to avenging their parent's murder. They grow into their adulthood harboring that vengeance, teaching themselves how to play their nemesis' own game. And after years of anticipation, it comes full circle when they strike down their parent's killer.
General
  • Her matched pistols ('Shock' and 'Awe') are a reference to a military tactic which dictates the use of overwhelming firepower and battlefield awareness to drain the enemy's will to fight back.
  • Her Ultimate's name, Bullet Time.png Bullet Time, is based on a term used in movies in which all action goes into slow-motion, a term coined by the Max Payne video game franchise.
  • Miss Fortune was one of the champions available to be chosen for the Noxian pool during the 2nd Ionia vs. Noxus match. She was one of the selected champions.
  • Miss Fortune could be a reference to Rue Meridian from "The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara" books by Terry Brooks. Rue Meridian is an airship crew member/mercenary that "is capable of charming any man". They are also visually similar. Gangplank may be visually based off her brother, a captain of the ship. 
  • Her twin pistols can be seen in the Mac Version Launch preview video for League of Legends.
  • Miss Fortune appearance in her classic looks is somewhat similar to Elza from Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. Elza, like Miss Fortune, is also a pirate(sky pirate actually), wears rather revealing attire and equips guns which the barrel have larger circumference at the muzzle.
  • Miss Fortune is third champion to have their IP price reduced twice. The other champions are Warwick and Garen.
  • Miss Fortune's left gun smokes based off her critical hit chance, where the higher the critical hit chance, the more smoke that appears to come off from the gun.
  • Miss Fortune was the second champion to have a /joke animation. The first being KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw
Quotes
  • Miss Fortune's selection quote: "Fortune doesn't favor fools!" is likely a spin-off of the Latin saying: "Fortuna favet fortis", which translates to "Fortune favors the brave."
  • Some of her quotes are direct references to Han Solo from Star Wars A New Hope.
    • "I always shoot first": Refers to Han's shoot-out with Greedo.
    • "Don't get cocky": A famous Han Solo quote.
    • "I've got a good feeling about this": Han uses a similar phrase.
    • "Watch your mouth kid, or you'll find yourself respawning at home!": An adapted version of one of Han's lines.
  • The French Taunt is a reference to the movie "The Good, the bad and the Ugly".
  • In the Brazilia version, her quote "Continue a andar (Keep walking)" is a reference to the song "Just Keep Swiming", from the film Finding Nemo, as she is voice by the same actress who voice Dory (Maíra Góes) in Brazil.
