  • Nidalee is voiced by Kelly Fosdahl Burge[4][5][6][7]
  • Nidalee's design may have been inspired by Navee, the protagonist of the French graphic novel Wake.
  • Before her release Nidalee was rumored to have a special stackable DOT that could be applied by all her damaging abilities and her passive provided 2 seconds of stealth when leaving brush in cougar form. It was removed prior to her release.
  • Nidalee had a bug where she could kill teammates with her Primal Surge.png Primal Surge by applying the damage of her Swipe.png Swipe as well. Since the potential damage of Swipe.png Swipe is higher than the healing of Primal Surge.png Primal Surge its damage could kill off a low health ally.
  • Nidalee is one of eight champions to have more than 4 skills, the others being Lee Sin Lee Sin, Jayce JayceElise Elise, Karma Karma, Heimerdinger Heimerdinger, Gnar Gnar, and Rek%27Sai Rek'sai.

  • Nidalee is the first champion to feature a transformation ability. The others being Swain Swain, Shyvana ShyvanaElise Elise, and Gnar Gnar.
  • Nidalee has 4 running animations: her default human form run, her default cougar form run, her human form-bush sprint, and lastly her cougar form-bush sprint.
  • Nidalee was the first champion to have any ability put on a static cooldown. Specifically, the capped spell is her cougar form's Pounce.png Pounce. This was removed in patch V1.0.0.124.
  • Her hidden passive gives nearby lower-leveled allied champions 5 experience every 5 seconds.
  • A maximum-range Javelin Toss.png Javelin Toss has the second-highest damage of any non-ultimate single-target ability in the game (only surpassed by a full channeled Drain.png Drain by Fiddlesticks Fiddlesticks) and higher damage than many ultimate abilities.
  • In the U.R.F game mode (available in April 2014), Nidalee was deemed overpowered/obnoxious, and was ultimately disabled in non-custom games.
  • Nidalee is filtered as a "support" in the client's shop, despite having her "support" secondary tag removed.
  • Nidalee is one of the few champions to have an extra set of /command animations. When in cougar form, she changes her /taunt, /laugh, and /dance animations (though there is no voice change).
