Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


  • Classic Skin
  • Street Talon


  • Talon was designed by Hephastopheles .[1]
  • Talon's champion title was first "The Blade Rogue", and later "The Shadow's Blade". When he was released his champion title got changed again to "The Blade's Shadow". It is unknown exactly why his title was changed to "The Blade's Shadow".
    • The title may relate to his service under General Du Couteau. In French "Couteau" means "knife", indicating that General Du Couteau was the "Blade" while Talon was the "Shadow".
    • Talon's original placeholder name was Bertrand.
  • The bird-like creature perched on the fallen sword in the Sneak Peek bears a striking resemblance to Beatrice,  Swain's raven, hinting that Talon's past may be interlaced with Swain's in some way. Similarly, the black roses surrounding the fallen sword in the Sneak Peek likely represent the Black Rose, an organization of which  LeBlanc is the leader. Both champions are elements of Noxus's elite.
  • Talon is voiced by Travis Willingham.
    • Travis Willingham and Laura Bailey (voices of Talon and Akali respectively) are a married couple.
  • Talon's dance is inspired by "Billie Jean" and includes Michael Jackson's moonwalk and crotch grab.
  • His passive refers to "mercy killing", the act of killing quickly to end a dying person's agony.
  • Talon's design elements, background and appearance are all reminiscent of the main characters of the Assassin's Creed video game series as well as Thief The Dark Project.
  • Talon is one of the 8 champions who do not have a single skill that scales off ability power; along with  Darius,  Draven,  Garen,  Olaf,  Riven,  Vayne and  Zed.
  • Talon can be seen in the background of the splash art of the Battle Bunny Riven skin.

    General's Du Couteau family.

Crimson Elite Talon

  • It is part of Noxus's Crimson Elite theme, meant to be the Noxian counterpart to the Demacian Commando skins. So far, the only other Crimson Elite member is Riven, though she may have left the unit as she is a Noxian exile.
  • In the Chinese client, his Crimson Elite Talon is renamed "Nemesis Talon" and his Renegade Talon to "Street Talon".
  • He shares this theme with  Riven.

Dragonblade Talon

  • It appears to be referencing Strider Hiryu from the Strider/Marvel vs Capcom series.
  • He shares this theme with  Riven.


  • Talon is part of the "Crimson Elite" alongside possible former member  Riven.
  • Talon was once spared by General Du Couteau and in turn became his ally alongside with  Katarina.
    •  Katarina regards Talon as a colleague and, in some ways, a little brother. However, she also treats him like an emotional punching bag from time to time.
    •  Cassiopeia doesn't share those feelings. She sees him as an outsider and treats him that way.
  • Talon and  Quinn are rivals.
  • As revealed in Talon's League Judgement, Talon used to have a friend and partner in crime back when he was a young thief on the streets of Noxus. His name was Kavyn and the two lived together in an unused pipe in the sewers. The two of them often teamed up to steal food and other things from merchants on the streets, however Kavyn was very unreliable and often caused Talon to nearly get caught. One day, after another failure due to Kavyn's incompetence, Kavyn gave Talon some daggers, which Talon promptly used to kill Kavyn.
