- Her lore was changed once more to have Shyvana simply team up with Jarvan IV on the similar goal of slaying the dragon that killed Shyvana's father.
- Shyvana was the first champion since Kog'Maw to not receive a League Judgement. With the exception of Varus, no other champion since then has received a Judgement either.

- Shyvana is the third champion to feature a physical transformation ability, the others being Nidalee and Swain released before her, and Zyra, Elise, and Gnar released after her.

- Garen views Shyvana with disapproval due to her lack of discipline and self-control. Among Demacians, Shyvana gets along with Xin Zhao best, after Jarvan.

Shyvana hates being turned into a squirrel by Lulu. Shyvana sees Twitch and Zyra as no more than a snack and something to burn, respectively.
- Galio is a friend of Shyvana's and it is implied that his wisdom has a calming effect on her rage.
