  • Mordekaiser was designed by Coronach.
  • Mordekaiser is one of four champions currently voiced by Adam Harrington, the other three being RyzeSquare.png Ryze, KassadinSquare.png Kassadin, and ShacoSquare.png Shaco.
  • Mordekaiser's name is derived from the online identity of Yun "Stich" Lam, the girlfriend of a Riot designer, Colt 'Ezreal' Hallam.[1]
    • "Mordekaiser" means "Murder Emperor" when translated from German.
  • Mordekaiser's quotes are also metal references.
  • His quote, "No pain, no drain!" is a direct reference to his own mechanic, as he will not "drain" any shield for Iron Man.png Iron Man if he doesn't damage anything (the "pain").
    • The "pain" can also mean not his enemies' pain, but his own, as he sacrifices his own health in order to casts spells, meaning that without inflicting pain on himself, there will be no "drain". Also, if the "pain" meant his enemies pain, then it would make sense that his basic attacks stacked his passive, but because only his spells, which cost his own health to cast, will lead to the "drain", the "pain" most likely refers to his self-inflicted damage.
    • It's also a reference to the song "No pain, no Gain" , by the German metal band Scorpions
  • Mordekaiser breaks the fourth wall on occasion, saying "You only need to click once, fool!" when he is ordered to move.
    • This is also a tip to whenever he has the opponent soul under his control, as the soul will reset each attack everytime the target is clicked.
  • "So be it... Summoner." Is a direct reference to Return of the Jedi from the Star Wars saga when the Emperor says to Luke Skywalker: "So be it... Jedi."
  • Mordekaiser's quote, "Time to shred" is a reference to Shredding, a type of guitar play : consists of performing a very fast and hard melody solo, which is particularly common in Heavy Metal.
  •  Mordekaiser shares the same quote with EvelynnSquare.png Evelynn"If I must."
  • Mordekaiser shares a quote with RenektonSquare.png Renekton"Carnage!"
  • Mordekaiser's quote "For great...torment!" is similar to HeimerdingerSquare.png Heimerdinger's quote "For great science!".

  • Mordekaiser's classic splash art shows Mordekaiser using all of his basic abilities at once.
  • He bares some resemblance to Alphonse Elric from the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise.

MordekaiserSquare.png Lord Mordekaiser [S|L]
  • It originally had a spike on its belt, which was removed for suggestiveness. This could still be seen during the loading screen for a couple patches, but has since been corrected.
  • The skin in question may have been a reference to William Murderface's codpiece from the television show Metalocalypse.
  • Lord Mordekaiser skin resembles Lord Sauron from Lord of the Rings franchise.
  • To be specific, it also resembles the other Dark Lord from Tolkien works, Melkor/Morgoth from The Silmarillion, Sauron's master and the first Dark Lord.
  • It also resembles the first Overlord from the Overlord videogame franchise.
  • It also resembles the Chaos Space Marines in Warhammer 40000 Universe (the Chinese image is very similar to Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising cover).
MordekaiserSquare.png Pentakill Mordekaiser [S|L]
  • Instead of his morning star, he is swinging an axe as his weapon and he grows hair instead of his cape.
  • Mordekaiser shares this theme with KarthusSquare.png Karthus, SonaSquare.png Sona, YorickSquare.png Yorick and OlafSquare.png Olaf.

  • Mordekaiser originally came from the Shadow Isles but is currently stalking the slums of Noxus.
  • Mordekaiser is in the Pentakill (Band) with KarthusSquare.png Karthus, OlafSquare.png Olaf, SonaSquare.png Sona and YorickSquare.png Yorick. According to the Journal, the metal band is said to be successful across Valoran.
  • The altars on the Twisted Treeline suggest :
    • "I serve you, because I must, Mordekaiser."-Western Altar, "I serve you gladly, Mordekaiser." -Eastern altar , Mordekaiser had(s) some high rank in the Shadow Isles, fortunately evidenced by his old lore which said that he was an undead general.
    • "Mordekaiser is not to be trusted, Hecarim!"-Western Altar, taking in count that Hecarim fights for the Shadow Isles, Mordekaiser actual goals aren't linked to the Isles, but to his personal benefits.
      • "Are you also a prisoner Mordekaiser"-Western altar, likely means that Mordekaiser affiliation to the Shadow Isles is forced, and he fights this by following his personal objectives, not of the Isles.
      • Apart from the altars, this quote (from his old lore) "The common perception is that the encompassing armor protects him, I fear that – for the fragile time being – it actually protects us."―Rozuel Fecirem, somewhat confirm the Western Altar quote, as his armor might be his prison.
  • Mordekaiser and HecarimSquare.png Hecarim know each other, and are stated to have similar beliefs, but disagree when it comes to how they achieve their goals.
