According to Babaganoosh, Urgot was unavailable for the Ionia versus Noxus Grudge Match due to being damaged and needing considerable time to be repaired. He received a major strength buff in the following patch release.
After his visual rework, this skin references Kaiju monsters.
His splash art references a somewhat common occurrence in Kaiju films where the monster emerges from the sea depths, near a floating boat or ship.
This splash may be specifically referencing the movie Pacific Rim, and the scene in which Knifehead surfaces in front of a fishing boat, only to get locked in combat with Gipsy Danger shortly after.
Crabgot's appearance also references Pacific Rim as his body seems to be embedded with energy (shining through his eyes, within the claws, and other small gaps), something that is prominent with Pacific Rim's Kaiju monsters compared to monsters in other Kaiju films.
Before his death, Sion was Urgot's field commander.
After years on the battlefield, Urgot was delegated the position of High Executioner of Noxus.
Before Urgot could execute the captured Jarvan IV, the Dauntless Vanguard and their leader Garen interfered at the final moment. Urgot was cut in two by Garen before the Demacian prince could be executed.
Professor Stanwick Pididly used research notes stolen from Viktor to reconstruct Urgot into a cyborg body of his own design. The experiment was a success largely due to Urgot's sheer thirst for vengeance.
Both Urgot and Darius believe weakness should be purged from Noxus. However while Darius believes the strong are right to rule, Urgot believes in the war of all against all, where only the strong can truly survive.
When taunting Katarina, Urgot implies that Swain was involved her father's disappearance.
