Trivia

  • Xin Zhao was designed by Geeves.
  • Xin Zhao was released concurrently with Season One.
  • Xin Zhao is voiced by Richard Epcar.
  • Xin Zhao has one of the longest base auto attack ranges out of all the melee champions, tied with  Jarvan IV,  Wukong,  Fizz,  Nautilus,  Hecarim, and  Yasuo.
  • In the Chinese version of the game, Xin Zhao's name is rendered as Zhao Xin (赵信), as Chinese names are written with their family name first. In Traditional Chinese and in Japanese, the name would be written as 趙信, while being pronounced as "Choushin" via on'yomi.
    • His name Xin (信) means "faith" or "trust" in Chinese.
    • "Zhao" in Chinese is a unique character, only usable as a last name. However, it is mainly due to being written in Simplified Chinese. The Traditional version of the character is written as 趙, which can also be used in Japanese, which literally means "nimble".
    • He shares the family name of Zhao Yun (赵云), a famous general during the Three Kingdoms Era and a friend of Liu Bei. Like Yun, he uses a spear as weapon.
    • He may also be named after Zhao Xin, a Han general.
    • Xin Zhao is the only champion that references Asian culture but does not belong to Ionia.

Quotes

  • Xin Zhao's joke is a reference to the question, "What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?" This in turn is a reference to the Chinese word Maodun, 矛盾 (lit. spear and shield) which means "Contradiction".
  • In the French version of the game, Xin Zhao's /joke is different. It is a reference to The Blue Lotus of The Adventures of Tintin comic book series.
  • In the German version of the game, Xin Zhao's joke translates to: "Find me an immovable object, so that I can bury you under it!"
