Trivia

  • Twitch's design closely resembles that of the Skaven, a devious and warlike race of anthropomorphic rats from the Warhammer Fantasy franchise. The Medieval skin reflects this similarity more than his original skin.
  • Twitch was designed by Guinsoo. [1]
  • Both old and post-visual rework Twitch were voiced by Doug Boyd. [2] [3]
  • Deadly Venom.png Deadly Venom displays an "X" symbol upon reaching 6 stacks. This is most likely a reference about how infected houses during the Bubonic Plague would be marked with an "X" on the door.
  • Twitch's title is likely a reference to the Bubonic Plague, which killed millions in Europe during Medieval times, and was transmitted by rats or more specifically, their fleas.
  • Upon receiving a visual update, Twitch's ultimate was renamed from Spray and Pray to Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat. While rat-a-tat-tat is a widely known onomatopoeia for gunfire, many believe this is in reference to the Pokémon Rattata, whose name is often mispronounced as Ratatatta (rat-ta-tat-ta).

Quotes

  • He has special quotes for LeonaSquare.png Leona, JannaSquare.png Janna, SingedSquare.png Singed, ZacSquare.png Zac and CaitlynSquare.png Caitlyn.
  • Has special quotes for items like Last Whisper item.png Last Whisper and Sight Ward item.png Stealth Ward.
  • The quote "Boop!" is a reference to the common internet image macro of the same name, usually involving an animal being touched lightly on the nose.
  • Twitch's special taunts for Singed reference a common and unofficial "rule" of the game: Don't chase Singed. Because of his unique playstyle and skillset leaving a trail of poison behind him, Singed typically does well against newer players unfamiliar with this rule.
  • Twitch's taunt "I hear you're trash! Bow before your king!" could be a reference to the professional player Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng, who is known for smack talk and specifically the phrase "Everyone else is trash".
  • Twitch's quote "I demand a sandwich!" is a reference to a popular meme quote by Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, "Would you make me a sandwich?".
  • Twitch's quote "All pipes lead to home"  is a reference to the well known idiomatic phrase, "All roads lead to Rome".

Skins

TwitchSquare.png Whistler Village Twitch [S|L]
  • It is based on German gold medal winner of the women's individual biathlon of the 2010 Winter Olympics: Magdalena Neuner. (flags with the colors of the German flag can be seen in the splashart)
  • During the 2010 Winter Olympics, the biathlon was played in Whistler Olympic Park.
TwitchSquare.png Gangster Twitch [S|L]
TwitchSquare.png Medieval Twitch [S|L]
  • It was conceived by the 2 people that first hit 350 friend referrals: Grez and Greyrir Wolfwood. Grez picked the champion that would receive the skin, and Greyrir Wolfwood designed a "Medieval Twitch, with a fleur-de-lis on his cape, and a pot on his head". The idea was given to the Riot artists and Medieval Twitch was released a few months later.
  • Medieval Twitch holds the distinction for being the rarest skin in the game.
TwitchSquare.png Vandal Twitch [S|L]
TwitchSquare.png Pickpocket Twitch [S|L]
  • He and EvelynnSquare.png Evelynn are located and robbing in Piltover as indicated by the splash art.
  • This skin is very likely a reference to Sly Cooper, the protagonist of the Sly Cooper video game series who is known for various styles of thievery, including pickpocketing. The similarities go as far as being nearly identical outfits and colour schemes, minus a couple differences in saturation.
  • He shares this theme with EvelynnSquare.png Evelynn.
TwitchSquare.png SSW Twitch [S|L]
  • This skin is related to "Samsung Galaxy White", who have won the League of Legends Season 4 World Championship finals.
  • This skin represents imp of Samsung Galaxy White.
  • This skin closely resembles the DotA hero Meepo, both of which appear to be anthropomorphic mice with long ears.
  • His Recall animation is a reference to imp rolling around on the grass of Seoul World Cup Stadium at Worlds 2014, as seen here. [4]
  • He shares this theme with RengarSquare.png Rengar, SingedSquare.png Singed, TalonSquare.png Talon and ThreshSquare.png Thresh.
