  • Udyr was designed by Coronach.
  • He was the first Champion released after the official October 27, 2009 launch of the game.
  • A producer at Riot Games is named after him. [1]
  • Udyr is voiced by J.S. Gilbert.
  • Udyr's original champion title was "the Animal Spirit" but with the Freljord patch his champion title was changed to "the Spirit Walker" and changes were also made to his lore.
  • The word "Udyr" literally translates into "Beast" in Norwegian. The Danish words "Uhyr" and "Dyr" mean "Monster" and "Animal", while "udyr" is mostly used to describe people as evil, acting like animals and not caring if they kill.
  • Almost all of Udyr's skills are based off the 4 Beasts of the Cardinal Directions, with the sole exception of the Azure Dragon.
  • He is the only character that cannot max out all of his skills, as each of his skills have five levels and the max character level is 18 (18 points for a total of 20 possible ranks).
  • He is the only character without an ultimate. Udyr has 4 skills that can be leveled up to the maximum rank of 5.
  • Udyr is one of a few champions to have multiple textures in one skin. Udyr however has more different textures in one skin than any other champion, as he has a different one for each of his stances.
  • Udyr's dance shows the Drunken Master Kung Fu Style. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • Udyr is one of two champions that went into the weekly champion rotation on the day of their release. The other one is PoppySquare.png Poppy.
  • Udyr was one of the champions chosen for the Ionian pool available during the Ionia vs. Noxus match. He was one of the selected champions, and was voted the MVP.

  • It is probably inspired by Native American mythology.

  • His appearance and clothing style resembles that of Shaolin monks and guardian statues found in temples and shrines of Asian culture. They are often depicted in a meditative or defensive posture, featuring exposed torsos and wearing large prayer beads over some body parts. Traditional footwear (like Japanese Geta) and waistcloth (similar to South-Asian garments like a Lungi) as well as bright glowing eyes without pupils are also recurring features seen among them.
  • He also bears a striking resemblance to the Sura Master NPC from Ragnarok Online, if one doesn't count for the hairstyle.
  • Spirit Guard Udyr's Level 5 Bear Stance has a similarity to the Street Fighter character Oni, one of Akuma's alternate forms. Both have bluish glowing skin and aura, a large prayer beads, bear-claw shaped hands, exposed upper bodies and gruffy hairstyle resembling flames.
  • Using a Dance, Laugh, or Taunt emote command with Spirit Guard Udyr summons whichever spirit corresponds to his current stance. His Dance will summon all four spirits in sequence once any given ability has reached rank five. His Joke summons UrfSquare.png Urf, which finally explains where Urf's spirit went after being killed by WarwickSquare.png Warwick.
  • The skin theme represents his state as a monk after finding his inner harmony and conquering his rage completely with the help of Ionian monks, even when fusing with one of the four spirits. This stands in strong contrast to his non-ultimate skins which represent his feral nature and somewhat still-uncontrolled rage.

    • I do not like Pulsfire Ezreal that much actaully. I am a fan of Explorer Ezreal. So for me, Spirit Guard Udyr is the better skin.
    • spirit guard is better because the auto attack animation is better then original
