  • Classic Skin
  • Galactic Renekton


  • Renekton was designed by Kuo-Yen 'Xypherous' Lo.
  • Renekton is voiced by Patrick Seitz, who also voices Kog&#039;Maw Kog'Maw and Lucian Lucian.
  • Renekton was first revealed in the Journal of Justice, Volume 1 Issue 8, as the brother of Nasus Nasus, though his name was spelled Renekhton there. It should be noted however that Renekton has technically been in the lore as long as Nasus has, as the story of the conflict between the two brothers has been in Nasus's backstory from the start.
  • Renekton's title used to be 'the Eater of Souls' but was changed to the current one after his sneak peek.
  • Cull the Meek.png Cull the Meek was originally called Tyrant's Reach but was changed with the release of the Champion Spotlight for unknown reasons.
  • Nasus Nasus' lore describes Renekton Renekton as having a "forked-tongue," but this is not meant to be taken literally. The metaphorical phrase that someone is "speaking with a forked tongue" means that the person is lying or being deceptive.
  • In his old lore, it was stated that he awoke in the sewers of Zaun. This is a reference to the urban legend that crocodiles live in the sewers of various large cities.
  • Renekton and Nasus Nasus both bear physical resemblance to old Egyptian Gods Sobek and Anubis, respectively. However, Renekton's lore is more resemblant of Ammit, a crocodilian demon that, upon Anubis's judgment of a heart's purity, would eat impure hearts; similarally, Renekton judged who was worthy of receiving Nasus' teachings.
  • Renekton's blade-weapon may be a reference to the Klingon bat'leth, from the Star Trek series. Although, Renekton's blade has the grips on the inside edge of the blade where as a traditional bat'leth has them on the outside edge of the blade. Thus it could be a reference to the protagonist's weapon in the Manhwa Jackals, weapon that can be seen here in the front.
  • Renekton's Art Spotlight is the only one that is not of his original skin, but his Outback skin.
  • Because Renekton uses the fury system, his spells don't cost any mana, energy or life to be used. The fury gained through attacks is used to empower them only.
  • The icon for Renekton's Slice.png Slice and Dice is similar to the icon for Caitlyn Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole.png Ace in the Hole.
  • His ability "Slice and Dice" makes reference to cut something into small pieces to analyze it, and is another reference to "blind violence".
    • The movement Renekton makes while doing this ability is also fairly similar to the "death roll" exhibited by many species of crocodilians; where the crocodilian spins its body continuously while holding on with its jaws to tear a chunk of tissue from a large carcass or prey item.
  • Like his brother's ultimate Fury of the Sands.png Fury of the Sands, Renekton's ultimate Dominus.png Dominus makes him bigger, gives him more health, and damages surrounding enemies.
  • Renekton references Nasus Nasus in his in-game quotes. He is one of the few champions who references another champion in-game without a special taunt.
  • In the Polish version, Renekton's /joke and /taunt are both quotes from a YouTube video that's popular in Poland. It is worth noting, however, that curse words are substituted with their less offensive counterparts.
  • RenektonSquare.png Renekton shares a quote with Mordekaiser Mordekaiser : "Carnage."
  • RenektonSquare.png Renekton shares a quote with IreliaSquare.png Irelia: "Cut them down."
  • Renekton's taunt makes a reference to Osiris in Egyptian lore. The quote "Come back when you've collected all the bits of yourself" makes double reference: one to the champion he kills and one to the lore of the Egyptian gods, since Osiris needed to recover all his body parts in order to return and claim his position as a true god.
  • Renekton's joke refers to the birds that are sometimes found in the mouths of crocodiles and alligators, cleaning rotten food remains from their teeth. It also refers to the social blunder of having food stuck in one's teeth.
RenektonSquare.png Classic Renekton [S|L]
  • His base splash art received an update in patch 4.16 and thus came along with the Shurima event and the release of Azir Azir.
RenektonSquare.png Outback Renekton [S|L]
  • It is a reference to Crocodile Dundee.
  • This skin looks similar to Leatherhead from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
  • In the Outback Renekton skin his scales appear brown in the splash art, in-game they are cobalt blue.The brown is the underbelly of this skin.
RenektonSquare.png Galactic Renekton [S|L]
  • This skin is most likely a reference to the Egyptian gods of the Stargate series.
  • Him being a white alligator may be a reference to the albino alligators inhabiting the sewers.
  • He shares this theme with Azir Azir and Nasus Nasus.
    • Additionally, a headless statue of Nasus Nasus is seen in the background. Renekton Renekton is leaning over with one foot on the statue's head.
RenektonSquare.png Bloodfury Renekton [S|L]
  • While standing in brush with this skin, his tongue will sometimes remain opaque while the rest of his body is translucent. This does not affect detection from outside the brush.
RenektonSquare.png Rune Wars Renekton [S|L]
RenektonSquare.png Scorched Earth Renekton [S|L]
  • This skin was redone a couple of times before being released.
  • He shares this theme with Xerath Xerath.

  • Renekton Renekton and Nasus Nasus are Ascended brothers of Shuriman legend, who side-by-side defended their homeland in a dire time of need.
  • The beast of living fire that Nasus and Renekton fought right before the fall of Shurima was Brand Brand. It is unknown who imprisoned him in the Mana Surge.png magical sarcophagus, but he was later released and used by Xerath Xerath as a distraction for stealing the Ascended power meant for Azir Azir.
  • Renekton, by choosing to seal himself within the Tomb of the Emperors in order to contain Xerath, has suffered greatly under his millennium-long imprisonment with the crazed magus, leaving him psychologically unstable. Freed by Noxian noblewoman Cassiopeia Cassiopeia and Shuriman sell-sword Sivir Sivir, Renekton seeks to tear the world asunder in his insanity, beginning with his brother Nasus, whom he now believes is responsible for his agony.
