Trivia

Development
  • Rek&#039;Sai Rek'Sai was designed by Beat Punchbeef.
  • Rek&#039;Sai Rek'Sai has a striking similarity to the Graboids from the movie Tremors, having similar behaviour, such as lurking beneath the earth, digging tunnels and striking from underground, as well as the use of Tremor Sense to detect potential prey.
  • Like Cho&#039;GathSquare.png Cho'Gath, MalphiteSquare.png Malphite, NautilusSquare.png Nautilus or SkarnerSquare.png Skarner, Rek&#039;Sai Rek'Sai's size is scaled down for gameplay purposes. She is more or less the size of a house, while in game she is only somewhat larger than a human.
    • When asked for a size estimate for Rek'Sai, a Rioter approximated her to a "Small T-Rex. Mammoth. Whale Shark. Large not huge."[1]
  • Rek&#039;Sai Rek'Sai's design was greatly influenced by Omen.[2]
Lore
  • Rek'Sai has been living in Shurima for decades and destroyed several cities in that time; this makes her the Voidborn who, so far, has dwelt the longest on Runeterra.
  • Rek'Sai also revealed that the Voidborn have specific species instead of a general archetype.
General
  • She is the first female Voidborn in the game.
    • She is also the second female champion that does not have a humanoid form, with AniviaSquare.png Anivia being the first.
  • She is the first and so far only champion to use a Tunnel.png tunneling ability.
  • Rek'Sai could also refer to the Shai-Hulud from the novel and movie series Dune.
  • Her appearance is remarkably similar to Chattur'Gha from the videogame Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem.
  • Rek'Sai is the first champion that was released as a Fighter that does not have any secondary role, along with Gangplank being second after his rework.
Quotes
  • Rek&#039;Sai Rek'Sai was the first champion who does not talk, but is only the second champion not to speak an intelligible language, after GnarSquare.png Gnar.
    • Including pseudo-champions, Rek'Sai would be the second champion who does not talk after Mega Gnar Mega Gnar. That said, the pseudo-champions Rebirth.png Eggnivia and Valor Valor have no audible lines at all (speech or otherwise).
    • SonaSquare.png Sona is technically mute as per her lore, but is able to communicate telepathically with her player.
Skins
Rek&#039;SaiSquare.png Eternum Rek'Sai [S|L]
  • Her Burrow.png Burrow ability resembles Scrin buildings from the Command and Conquer series.
  • This skin design may have taken some inspiration from the Moorwen of the film Outlander, which shares a similar colour scheme and glowing red pattern.
  • She shares this theme with NocturneSquare.png Nocturne.
Rek&#039;SaiSquare.png Pool Party Rek'Sai [S|L]
  • This skin design may have taken some inspiration from Chaos (In its Chaos 4 form), a liquified life-form of the videogame Sonic Adventure which shares a similar colour scheme and shape.
    • Her recall animation resembles to Chaos 4's boss battle, where the player fight over lily pads and Chaos comes out of the water.
      • Coincidentally George the Suicidal Frog resembles Froggy the Frog.
  • Her recall animation is a reference to movie series Jaws.
    • In the last second, she comes out of the ground and eats George, the Suicidal Frog.
  • When her Tremor Sense spots enemies in the fog of war, a Music similar to the Jaws theme will play.
  • When casting Void Rush.png Void Rush she rides a jet ski towards the target Tunnel.png Tunnel.
  • Her skin resembles the cartoon shark designs from "Maui and Sons".
  • She shares this theme with FioraSquare.png Fiora, MissFortuneSquare.png Miss Fortune, TaricSquare.png Taric, DravenSquare.png Draven, LuluSquare.png Lulu, Dr. MundoSquare.png Dr. Mundo, ZacSquare.png Zac, GravesSquare.png Graves, LeeSinSquare.png Lee Sin, LeonaSquare.png Leona, RenektonSquare.png Renekton and ZiggsSquare.png Ziggs.


Relations

  • Rek&#039;Sai Rek'Sai is the queen of a specifically named Voidborn species, as well as the biggest of her kind, the Xer'Sai.
  • Unlike the other Voidborn, Rek&#039;SaiSquare.png Rek'Sai is not sapient. Her behaviour towards other Voidborn is akin to a dangerous animal to a human; Vel&#039;KozSquare.png Vel'Koz or Cho&#039;GathSquare.png Cho'Gath, for example, would be terrified of facing her.[2]
