Skins

UrgotSquare.png Classic Urgot [S|L]
  • In his old classic splash art, Urgot had tubes coming out of his body that lead to his skull. They were not visible on his in-game model, though.

  • This skin refers the eponymous trope.
  • 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 in that Crabgot's 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.
      • In Pacific Rim, there is a crustacean-looking Kaiju known as Onibaba that looks similar to Crabgot.

Relations

  • In Urgot's old lore:
    • Before his death, Sion 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 Jarvan IV, the Dauntless Vanguard and their leader Garen Garen interfered at the final moment. Urgot was cut in two by the Garen before the Demacian prince was executed.
    • Professor Stanwick Pididly, using research notes stolen from Viktor Viktor, reconstructed Urgot into a cyborg body of his own design. The experiment was a success largely due to Urgot's sheer thirst for vengeance.
  • In Urgot's new lore:
    • Urgot used to be a headsman, someone responsible for keeping the various Noxian warbands at bay through fear of execution.
    • Unlike his Draven current replacement who always craves attention through spectacles, Urgot took his job of purging the weak from Noxus very seriously.
    • Both Urgot and Darius 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, that way only the strong can survive.
    • Before his ascension into the role of High Commander of Noxus, Swain saw Urgot as a threat to his plans and tricked him on a fool's errand into Zaun, in an effort to get rid of him.
      • Swain's plan backfired, however, as Urgot realized humans, including himself, are weak and, by coincidence, adopted a philosophy similar to Viktor Viktor's, mechanizing himself to purge perceived physical weaknesses.
      • When taunting Katarina Katarina, Urgot implicated Swain in her father's disappearance.
