  • Nocturne was designed by Colt 'Ezreal' Hallam.
  • Nocturne is voiced by Jason Wishnov.
  • "Nocturne" is a Latin word derived from "nox, noctis" meaning "night" and "nocturnus/a/um" meaning "nightly".
    • In French, a nocturne is usually a musical composition that is inspired by, or evocative of, the night. Historically, nocturne is a very old term applied to Night Offices and, since the Mid Ages, to divisions in the canonical hour of Matins.
    • In French, nocturne is also an adjective to describe living entities who are active at night.
    • Umbra, the Latin word for "shadow", is the darkest part of the shadow, where the light source is completely blocked by the occluding body. An observer in the umbra experiences a total eclipse.
  • Nocturne was the first champion to be previewed at a popular event prior to its release, namely at the PAX East 2011.
    • He was also given a small sneak peek on the website IGN before release.
  • Nocturne's lore might be connected with Zed Zed, several speculations about the two champions relationship were made on Reddit upon the strong resemblance of Nocturne's 2013 splash art with ShockBlade Zed skin and other common elements shared by the two characters.
  • Though Nocturne was "born" in the Shadow Isles, he does not have any quotes to any other Shadow Isles champion. The altars also have no special quote towards him, similar to Evelynn.

  • Nocturne's ultimate Paranoia.png Paranoia was the name of Fiddlesticks Fiddlesticks' original passive, which caused enemies nearby to miss their attacks.
  • Nocturne is the only champion in the major cinematic videos to have spoken lines.
  • There is a high chance, that Nocturne is based on The Shrike from the Hyperion Cantos series of books.
    • The Shrike is a being that exists outside of time and space. The body of Shrike, as well as body of Nocturne, is covered with spikes. As well, both have 2 bright eyes on a full black body.
    • Nocturne has several quotes that may be references to The Shrike.
      • "Embrace the darkness." might be a reference to how shrike was killing his enemies, basically he hugs them until they will die on his spikes.
      • "Cross over." could be a reference to the Cruciform, that shrike was giving to people.
      • "Cut them from this world!" and "Suffer eternally!" could be references to The Shrike's Tree of Pain, the tree fully covered with spikes, that exists outside of the world, on which Shrike put his enemies to feel pain forever without dying.
      • Eternum Nocturne's quote "We transcend time" also bares similarity to The Shrike.

  • His quote: "Afraid of the dark?" is similar to Cho&#039;Gath Cho'Gath's quote: "Afraid of the dark? Wise...".
  • His joke: "Weather forecast for tonight: dark, with a chance of pain!" might be a reference to a George Carlin routine, "Al Sleet, the Hippy-Dippy Weatherman".
  • Graves Graves' Smoke Screen.png Smokescreen interacts with Nocturne. If an enemy Nocturne is hit by Smoke Screen.png Smokescreen, Graves Graves will say "I've got your darkness" or "Who's in the dark now?".
    • This was the first example of unique dialogue triggered by interactions between champions.

  • His joke "We have learned of spin to win, None can stop... it's a trick!" Is a reference to the popular League of Legends meme "Spin to Win"

  • His art was used for the Login screen during The Harrowing of 2011.

  • It changes the particles of his Duskbringer.png Duskbringer, Unspeakable Horror.png Unspeakable Horror, Paranoia.png Paranoia to a dark-red colour instead of the original's black. Also Shroud of Darkness.png Shroud of Darkness particle changes to a cleaner, bigger spell shield that resembles more Spell Shield.png Spell Shield than the classic version of this one.
  • His spell effects are similar to that of the Battlecast skins' effects.
  • His quote "We have learned of spin to win. None can stop... it was a trick!" bares resemblance to Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars quote "It's a trap!"
  • His voice and demeanor are similar to Harbinger from the Mass Effect series.
    • More specifically, several of his quotes are similar to lines from the Reapers Sovereign and Harbinger, including:
      • "Their existence is a mistake." resembling Sovereign's "Organic life is nothing but a genetic mutation, an accident."
      • "We transcend time." and "What was, is, and will forever be." resembling Sovereign's "We have no beginning. We have no end. We are infinite."
      • "Fate cannot be averted." resembling Harbinger's "You cannot escape your destiny".
      • "The end of days draws near." somewhat resembling Sovereign's "The time of our return is coming."
      • "We are one." resembling Harbinger's "We fight as one." and Sovereign's "We are legion."
  • In the background of this skin's splashart there is what seems to be neurons.
    • Neurons are found on the brain, wich is also where dreams/nightmares occur.
  • He shares this theme with Rek&#039;SaiSquare.png Eternum Rek'Sai [S|L].

    • Nocturne's Trivia has a point wrong, where it says: Nocturne is the only champion that was featured in two special login screens, one being ...
    • I just checked this and you're completely right, i already corrected it, and mentioned Fid in the trivia section of Nocturne.
