General

  • Xin Zhao was released when Season One started.
  • Xin Zhao, Fizz Fizz, Hecarim Hecarim, Jarvan IV Jarvan IV, Mordekaiser Mordekaiser, Nautilus Nautilus, Sion Sion, Tahm Kench Tahm Kench, Wukong Wukong, and Yasuo Yasuo are the melee champions with the highest basic attack range (175)
  • Xin Zhao is rendered, in Chinese localization, as 赵信 Zhào Xìn [ʈ͡ʂau̯˥˩ ɕin˥˩] per Chinese naming conventions, resembling that of a Xiongnu general who temporarily defected to Han Chinese forces.
    • His former name Viscero comes from Latin viscus "entrails", likely not his real name, but a derogatory nickname.

Quotes

  • "Find me an immovable object, and I'll put this question to rest!" references the irresistible force paradox.
    • French localization replaces the joke to reference The Blue Lotus from The Adventures of Tintin.
    • German localization replaces the joke with "Find me an immovable object, so that I can bury you under it!"
    • Italian localization replaces the joke with "Give me a spear, and I'll move the world" to reference Archimedes.
