Trivia

Development
  • Soraka is voiced by Lisa Lindsley, who also voices Kayle Kayle.
  • Soraka's name is derived from the Japanese word "sora," which means "sky," a reference to Soraka's celestial nature.
  • Soraka's ability icons have been changed twice, the first time for her visual update and the second time for her gameplay update.
  • Soraka was designed by RIOT Takai, later fired as a Riot Games employee but still continued to play League Of Legends under the Summoner Name AlaDeLaColt
General
  • Soraka was one of the champions available in the Ionian pool during the Ionia vs. Noxus match. She was one of the selected champions.
    • Soraka was in the previous Ionian versus Noxus match and had apparently performed quite poorly.
  • In the Mac launch video, there is a banana in the weapons cabinet. This is a homage to Soraka's autoattack particle, whose look has often been compared to a banana.
  • Soraka's dance is a reference to a commercial for Chiquita bananas, as seen here.
  • In the U.R.F game mode (available in April 2014), Soraka was deemed overpowered/obnoxious, and was ultimately disabled in non-custom games.
  • Soraka's ability Wish could be a reference to the high-level mage spell "Wish" in Dungeons & Dragons. One of the functions of the Wish spell is to heal the entire party, which is very much alike to Soraka's ability.
Quotes
  • Soraka's new joke, "Yes, that was a banana. *giggles* No-one expects the banana!" is a reference to the community nickname for her conspicuous autoattack projectile. The second part of the joke may also be a reference to the Monty Python sketch The Spanish Inquisition notable for the catchphrase "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition".
    • This could also be a reference to the 'banana kill' meme that is used in tournaments and other live events, where an "unexpected" last autoattack by Soraka kills off an enemy and the crowd goes wild about and/or the commentators commentate on how the last banana got the kill.
  • Soraka shares a quote with Lee Sin Lee Sin, "Where am I needed?"
Skins
SorakaSquare.png Classic Soraka [S|L]
  • Classic skin changed color depending which team she was on. Her jacket was either pink or yellow.
  • The Chinese version of Soraka's Classic skin is the background image of the "Utility" section in the mastery pages.
SorakaSquare.png Dryad Soraka [S|L]
  • This skin is based on the dryad, a nymph of the trees (specifically oak trees) from Greek mythology.
  • It also a reference to the Dryads from World of Warcraft.
SorakaSquare.png Divine Soraka [S|L]
  • This skin is intended to show her appearance before she fell from grace by using her powers offensively.
SorakaSquare.png Celestine Soraka [S|L]
  • Soraka had an unreleased skin under the name "Battle Priestess Soraka".[1] It was remade into SorakaSquare.png Celestine Soraka.
  • Celestine Soraka is likely a reference to white mages from the Final Fantasy series.
SorakaSquare.png Reaper Soraka [S|L]
  • Contrary to popular beliefs, this skin was not released for 2014 Harrowing. Rather, it was released after the Harrowing as a separate skin.[2][3][4]
  • She has the scythe that Death is usually depicted to be wielding rather than her usual staff.
  • This skin may resemble Mistress Death from the Marvel Earth 616 universe.
  • She also resembles Raven from the DC universe.
  • She shares this theme with Karthus Karthus and Hecarim Hecarim.
SorakaSquare.png Order of the Banana Soraka [S|L]
  • This skin is a tribute to April Fools Day 2015.
  • This skin is a reference to the ever popular community joke of Soraka auto-attacking with Bananas.

Relations

  • Soraka Soraka knows of the Bard Bard, and as a Celestial Being, she has deeper ties with him as well.[5]
  • Soraka was deceived by Warwick Warwick in his attempt to rip her heart out.
  • Soraka was responsible for reviving a nearly deceased Irelia Irelia during the Noxian invasion of Ionia. She did so by binding her life force to her hiten blades.
  • Due to Karthus Karthus being a being that embodies death and Soraka being a celestial deity of life, they are both rivals; this is reflected in both of their ultimate abilities: Karthus damages all enemy champions, while Soraka heals all ally champions.
