  • In his classic splash art, Urgot has tubes coming out of his body that lead to his skull. They are 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:
    • Sion commanded Sion Sion the field soldier Urgot.
    • When Urgot became the High Executioner of Noxus, he was attached to Swain Swain's military division.
    • 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 zealous warrior as he scrambled to free the Demacian Prince.
    • 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:
    • He kept his position as Noxian High Executioner.
    • Unlike his Draven better-known colleague who always created spectacles, Urgot took his job seriously to purge Noxus of the weak.
    • Both Urgot and Darius Darius thought weakness should be purged from Noxus, yet for yet unknown reasons Swain had though Urgot a potential obstacle & would promptly betray Urgot to the Zaunites.
      • Swain's plan backfired, however, as Urgot realized humans, including himself, are weak and, by coincidence, adopted a philosophy similar to Viktor Viktor's and mechanized himself to purge perceived physical weaknesses.
