Rakan's and Xayah's loading screens always align themselves to the rightmost side before a game starts and when picked on the same team (to mirror their shared splash art).
Rakan's and Xayah's dual recall animation is divided into three sections, an intro, a middle section, and then an outro. The whole sequence would take 8 seconds if Rakan and Xayah recalled at the exact same time, while the intro and the outro are both (2 seconds). The system will always play the intro, then it will always play the outro when there is 2 seconds left in the animation, regardless of how long the middle section has played for. This means that the characters will blend from whatever position they are in, to the first pose of the outro part of the sequence.
This was established by the writer for Rakan, who explained that they indirectly gave Rakan ADHD through piecing parts of their personality together, as well as events from their friends and family, to create him.
Rakan and Xayah share unique interactions depending on the situation.
Both are the first champions to feature ping-related lines.
"The only way to understand magic is to plunge into it, move with it, dance and dance!" is similar to the quote "The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance" by the British speaker and mystic Alan Watts, whose teachings included philosophies similar to the ones found in Rakan's quotes.
"We are seen dancing and thought insane - by those who can't hear the music" references a famous quote by Friedrich Nietzsche.
Rakan is a Lhotlan Vastayan in his mid-late twenties who travels Ionia as a wandering entertainer. After meeting and getting in a relationship with Xayah, both travel Ionia to preserve Ionia's natural magic from being controlled by humans.
Rakan and Xayah fought Zed and his Order of the Shadow to prevent them from harvesting a magical grove (sabotaging the Kashuri Armories, the creators of Jhin'sWhisper and other firearms by using Ionia's abundant magic reserves, might be next)
