  • Classic Skin
  • Kingpin Twitch
  • Whistler Village Twitch
  • Medieval Twitch
  • Gangster Twitch


  • 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 Visually Updated 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).


  • 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".


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.
  • His appearance closely resembles Rocket Raccoon from the Marvel universe.
  • This skin may also be a reference to Sly Cooper, the protagonist of the Sly Cooper video game series who is known for various styles of thievery, including pickpocketing.
  • He shares this theme with EvelynnSquare.png Evelynn.
