- Renekton was first revealed in the Journal of Justice, Volume 1 Issue 8, as the brother of 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.

- Nasus' lore incorrectly describes Renekton as having a "forked-tongue".

- Renekton's blade-weapon may be a reference to the Klingon bat'leth, from the Star Trek series.
