  • Classic Skin
  • Boneclaw Shyvana


  • Shyvana's lore was changed after release, removing references to being attacked by a mob and instead having Jarvan IVSquare.png Jarvan IV save her from the wrath of the dragons. This change was done because it was felt that the original lore did not make it sensible for her to join Demacia.
    • Her lore was changed once more to have Shyvana simply team up with Jarvan IVSquare.png Jarvan IV on the similar goal of slaying the dragon that killed Shyvana's father.
  • Shyvana was the first champion since Kog&#039;MawSquare.png Kog'Maw to not receive a League Judgement. With the exception of VarusSquare.png Varus, no other champion since then has received a Judgement either.
  • Shyvana's ultimate, Dragon&#039;s Descent.png Dragon's Descent, is the only non-toggle champion ability in the game that is not cooldown based.
  • Shyvana's dance is from the music video RIVER by the Japanese idol group AKB48. A side-by-side comparison of the dance can be seen here.
  • Shyvana's rage system was mislabeled as "Dragon's Blood" on her mechanics preview.
  • Shyvana´s name may be a reference to the hinduist deity "Shiva" , as they share similar featues, such as the blue skin and the theme of destruction.[2]
  • Shyvana is the third champion to feature a physical transformation ability, the others being NidaleeSquare.png Nidalee and SwainSquare.png Swain released before her, and ZyraSquare.png Zyra, EliseSquare.png Elise, and GnarSquare.png Gnar released after her.
    • Considering Shyvana is only a half-dragon, her transformation looks more like a wyvern than a traditional European dragon, as dragons are traditionally depicted as having 4 legs and 2 wings, while wyverns only have 2 legs and 2 wings.
  • ShyvanaSquare.png Shyvana's quote, "The quiet before battle.", is similar to the popular idiom "The calm before the storm."
  • ShyvanaSquare.png Shyvana's quote, "On wings of fury.", is similar to VayneSquare.png Vayne's quote, "On wings of night."
ShyvanaSquare.png Ironscale Shyvana [S|L]
  • It is a reference to the scale armour worn by warriors of different cultures.
  • Scale armor is often associated with dragons in various fantasy genres. This is most likely due to how the individual metal scales are overlapped with each other, resembling the fictional scales of a dragon.
ShyvanaSquare.png Boneclaw Shyvana [S|L]
  • Her dragon form might be a reference from B. Skull Dragon from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. Her human form visually resembles Princess Mononoke.
ShyvanaSquare.png Darkflame Shyvana [S|L]
  • Her dragon form might be a reference to Red-Eyes B. Dragon from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise.
ShyvanaSquare.png Ice Drake Shyvana [S|L]
  • It is a community requested skin, the concept named by fans as ShyvanaSquare.png Whiteout Shyvana. However, the original Whiteout Shyvana was more focused on the "white colors" than on the icy theme that ShyvanaSquare.png Ice Drake Shyvana has. The original thread can be found here.
ShyvanaSquare.png Championship Shyvana [S|L]
  • This skin was made in celebration of the 2014 World Championship.
  • Shyvana is the first of the championship skins to not have their season's crest/Roman Numeral involved with the skin
  • She shares this theme with KalistaSquare.png Kalista, RivenSquare.png Riven, Zed Zed,and ThreshSquare.png Thresh.
ShyvanaSquare.png Super Galaxy Shyvana [S|L]


  • Moved by Shyvana Shyvana's plight, Jarvan IVSquare.png Jarvan IV assisted her in slaying the mighty dragon that killed her father. After the battle, Jarvan IV offered Shyvana a place as a noble warrior in the ranks of the Demacian Elite Guard. Out of gratitude and necessity, Shyvana accepted.
  • GarenSquare.png Garen views Shyvana with disapproval due to her lack of discipline and self-control. Among Demacians, Shyvana gets along with Xin ZhaoSquare.png Xin Zhao best, after Jarvan.[3]
  • Shyvana is curious and (probably) envious of NidaleeSquare.png Nidalee's freedom and her balance between her human and animal forms, and doesn't understand AhriSquare.png Ahri's desire to become fully human. Shyvana hates being turned into a squirrel by LuluSquare.png Lulu. Shyvana sees TwitchSquare.png Twitch and ZyraSquare.png Zyra as no more than a snack and something to burn, respectively.[4]
  • GalioSquare.png Galio is a friend of Shyvana's and it is implied that his wisdom has a calming effect on her rage.[5]
