    • A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.

  • Poppy finds Yordles 'too fluffy' and disorganized, herself preferring the orderliness found in Demacia.

Development

Relations

  • Poppy's Hammer Shock hammer belonged to Demacia's founder Orlon, who passed it on to her on his deathbed. She is searching for the 'Hero of Demacia' meant to wield the hammer (without realizing she is the one).
    • When Orlon passed the hammer to Poppy, he did not specifically identify her as the Hero (or meant to, but died before he could), leading to Poppy's misunderstanding.
    • Poppy and KledSquare Kled are notable for being Yordles responsible for helping in building the human civilizations they align themselves with (Demacia and Noxus, respectively).
