  • Xin Zhao was designed by Geeves.
  • Xin Zhao was released concurrently with Season One.
  • Xin Zhao is voiced by Richard Epcar.
  • 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".
  • Xin Zhao is the only champion that references Asian culture but does not belong to Ionia.
  • Xin Zhao has one of the longest base auto attack ranges out of all the melee champions, tied with JarvanIVSquare.png Jarvan IV, WukongSquare.png Wukong, FizzSquare.png Fizz, NautilusSquare.png Nautilus, HecarimSquare.png Hecarim, and YasuoSquare.png Yasuo.
  • 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.
  • XinZhaoSquare.png 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, XinZhaoSquare.png 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, XinZhaoSquare.png Xin Zhao's /joke translates to: "Find me an immovable object, so that I can bury you under it!"
  • In the Italian version of the game, XinZhaoSquare.png Xin Zhao's /joke is different, and can be translated to "Give me a spear, and i'll move the world"; it is a reference to Archimedes, the ancient Greek physicist.

  • It is likely a reference to the famed Chinese general Zhao Yun, whom Xin Zhao shares many characteristics with.

XinZhaoSquare.png Secret Agent Xin Zhao [S|L]
  • Xin Zhao can be seen fighting Baron in the background of his splash art.
  • Xin Zhao's appearance is very much alike to the CCG Investigators from the anime series Tokyo Ghoul, so much that even his spear transforms into a suitcase, like an investigator's quinque.
  • Also in splash art his appearance looks like Adam Jensen from Deus Ex franchise.
  • He wields the Mark-VII, clandestine-class, utili-spear. Equipped with the latest in communications technology and palmprint identification software, this protean pike’s a repository of sophisticated tools and gadgets for the modern day secret agent. It’ll enhance the users spycraft with everything from garden-variety lockpicks to a microprocessor that coordinates ganks in seven hundred languages (including whatever the hell it is that GnarSquare.png Gnar yowls). But it’s mostly used for poking people with it.[1]
  • The 3D model has him wear a handsfree mobile device which is missing from the splash art.
  • He shares this theme with MissFortuneSquare.png Miss Fortune.


  • Xin Zhao was saved from Noxian imprisonment by JarvanIVSquare.png Jarvan IV grandfather, Jarvan Lightshield the Second.
