  • Olaf was designed by Coronach.
  • His name is common to those of the Vikings (of Scandinavian origin), his title in particular to the berserkers, Norse warriors who are recorded in Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word "berserk". Most berserkers wore little to no protection, save a bear skin called a "Bear-sark", which is where the word originated from. The berserkers believed that by wearing the bear's skin, they were able call upon the bear's ferocious rage and strength in battle.
    • Note that real Vikings did not have horns in their helms, that is just a modern depiction.
    • The name Olaf is an older form of the modern Nordic name Olof.

  • Ragnarok.png Ragnarok crowd-control removement effects is a reference to Poetic Edda strings: "For the forth I know, if men place bonds on my limbs, I so sing that I can walk; the fetter starts from my feet, and the manacle from my hands." That looks like it shouldn't remove silence and blindness effects, like it used to be with old Olaf's ultimate.
