Trivia

  • Viktor was designed by Hephastopheles[1] and reworked by Solcrushed.
  • Viktor's robotic hand from the Prototype skin can be seen in the video for the Mac Version of League of Legends.
  • Viktor is voiced by Owen Thomas, who also voices TwistedFateSquare.png Twisted Fate.
  • Viktor was the last champion released in 2011.
  • Viktor's character concept shares similarities with the Deus Ex series, as the theme of the series deals with Transhumanism and the use of human enhancement technologies.
  • Viktor's dance is a reference to the Melbourne Shuffle, a dance originating from Australia. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • The codename "Hexmage" used internally by Riot refers to Viktor.[2]
  • Viktor's lore resembles a lot that of a famous Serbian-American inventor, Nikola Tesla. Professor Stanwick stole credit for Viktor's creation, BlitzcrankSquare.png Blitzcrank. Similar to that was Tesla, where Thomas Edison stole credit for a lot of Tesla's work (such as the well known Edison lightbulb that Tesla made) during his time working for the famed American inventor and Guglielmo Marconi for stealing credit for the creation of the radio.
    • Viktor's own abilities took inspiration from Tesla's work that were never truly realised like: The Death Ray, gravity device, magnetic shielding, and ionic storms.

Quotes

  • Viktor shares a quote with JayceSquare.png Jayce: "Pave the way."

Skins

ViktorSquare.png Prototype Viktor [S|L]
  • This skin represents Viktor in his early stages of augmentation, when the majority of his cybernetic implants were still prototypes.
ViktorSquare.png Full Machine Viktor [S|L]
  • This skin depicts Viktor as completely robotic rather than having some organic parts like his classic skin.
  • This skin bears some resemblance to the Cybermen from the Dr Who series. Both share similar goals, as the Cybermen seek to make all beings the same as them, cold and without emotions.
  • This skin bears some resemblance to The Doctor from the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie.
ViktorSquare.png Creator Viktor [S|L]
  • This skin depicts him as the maker and leader of the Battlecast line.
  • The splash art features ChoGathSquare.png Battlecast Prime Cho'Gath and UrgotSquare.png Battlecast Urgot. In addition, a floating figure with a glowing eye can be spotted in the background, which was a forecast to Vel'KozSquare.png Battlecast Vel'Koz.
  • There are also several hints at future Battlecast skins; SkarnerSquare.png Battlecast Skarner's face can be seen below Cho'Gath's, with his stinger just above his body. KogMawSquare.png Battlecast Kog'Maw can be seen behind Urgot.
  • Creator Viktor is the only skin where Viktor is depicted as having his right arm replaced instead of his left one. This may indicate that Creator Viktor is in fact from a parallel universe, but for now, there isn't other evidence to support this possibility.
  • Creator VIktor's Recall.png Recall animation features a holographic screen, displaying SkarnerSquare.png Battlecast Skarner, KogMawSquare.png Battlecast Kog'Maw and the mysterious sting-ray / moth creature seen in Vel'KozSquare.png Battlecast Vel'Koz's splash art.
  • He shares this theme with KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw, ChoGathSquare.png Cho'Gath, Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz, XerathSquare.png Xerath, SkarnerSquare.png Skarner and UrgotSquare.png Urgot.

Relations

  • Viktor led the team that constructed BlitzcrankSquare.png Blitzcrank, the first steam automaton which obtained sentience.
    • Unfortunately Viktor's triumph was usurped by Professor Stanwick Pididly, who stole credit for Blitzcrank's creation.
  • Viktor's research was later used by Stanwick to reconstruct and revive UrgotSquare.png Urgot.
  • Viktor is stated to be a friend with UrgotSquare.png Urgot.
  • Viktor views JayceSquare.png Jayce, the young and charismatic inventor from Piltover, as an obstacle to his "glorious evolution". One that he must overcome.
    • Viktor defeated Jayce and stole a powerful arcane crystal to power his creations. Jayce later created the Mercury Hammer and counter assaulted Viktor's laboratory, destroying the arcane crystal which caused Viktor's machines to erupt in flames.
  • Viktor is the leader of The Evolution, seeking to replace organic life with machine-augmented bodies. The Battlecast line of skins show the results of his victory, warping the League's champions to suit his vision.
  • OriannaSquare.png Orianna is listed as Viktor's rival. This could be due to her unique construction that equals Viktor's technology in power.
