Trivia

  • Shyvana was designed by Coronach.[1]
  • Shyvana is voiced by Karen Strassman, Who also voices CassiopeiaSquare.png Cassiopeia, FioraSquare.png Fiora, ZyraSquare.png Zyra, and EliseSquare.png Elise.
  • Shyvana's ultimate, Dragon'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 lore was changed after release, removing references to being attacked by a mob and instead having JarvanIVSquare.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 JarvanIVSquare.png Jarvan IV on the similar goal of slaying the dragon that killed Shyvana's father.
  • Shyvana was the first champion since KogMawSquare.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 rage system was mislabeled as "Dragon's Blood" on her mechanics preview.
  • 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 and EliseSquare.png Elise released after her.
    • Shyvana's transformation looks more like a wyvern than a traditional dragon, as dragons are supposed to have 4 legs and 2 wings, while wyverns only have 2 legs and 2 wings.

Quotes

  • 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."

Skins

ShyvanaSquare.png Ironscale Shyvana

  • 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.

  • The dragon form bears a resemblance to Kyurem from the Pokémon franchise.
  • It is a community requested skin, fan named  ShyvanaSquare.png Whiteout Shyvana, the original  Whiteout Shyvana however, was more focused on the white colors than on the actual cold theme that ShyvanaSquare.png Ice Drake Shyvana has. The original thread can be found here.

Relations

  • Moved by Shyvana's plight, JarvanIVSquare.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 XinZhaoSquare.png Xin Zhao best, after Jarvan.[2]
  • 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.[3]
  • GalioSquare.png Galio is a friend of Shyvana's and it is implied that his wisdom has a calming effect on her rage.[4]
