Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


  • Classic Skin
  • Frozen Terror Nocturne
  • Void Nocturne
  • Ravager Nocturne
  • Haunting Nocturne


  • Nocturne was designed by Ezreal.
  • 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 on 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 ultimate  Paranoia was the name of  Fiddlesticks' original passive, which caused enemies nearby to miss their attacks.
  • Nocturne along with  Fiddlesticks' are the only champions that were featured in two special login screens. One being the 2011 harrowing event, where the login screen was Nocturne in his Haunting skin, and when his legendary skin was released, Eternum Nocturne. (5 dec.)
  • Nocturne's lore might be connected with  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.


  • Nocturne's quote: "Afraid of the dark?" is similar to  Cho'Gath's quote: "Afraid of the dark? Wise...".
  • Nocturne's quote: "Embrace the darkness!" might be a reference to The Darkness game.
  • Nocturne's 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".
  • Eternum Nocturne 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"
  •  Graves's  Smokescreen interacts with Nocturne. If an enemy Nocturne is hit by  Smokescreen,  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.

  • Three of Nocturne's skins changes the particle of his  Duskbringer and  Unspeakable Horror:
    • Frozen Terror Nocturne changes the particles of his  Duskbringer and  Unspeakable Horror abilities to light blue instead of the original's black.
    • Haunting Nocturne had its  Duskbringer and  Unspeakable Horror ability particles changed from the original's black to slime green after a petition on the League of Legends forum by players as seen here.
    • Eternum Nocturne changes the particles of his  Duskbringer,  Unspeakable Horror,  Paranoia to a red colour instead of the original's black. Also  Shroud of Darkness particle changes to a cleaner, bigger spell shield that resembles more  Spell Shield than the classic version of this one.
  • Haunting Nocturne's art was used for the log in screen during The Harrowing of 2011.
  • Eternum Nocturne's spell effects are similar to that of the Battlecast skins' effects.
  • Eternum Nocturne's 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."
