Trivia

  • Yorick was designed by Coronach.
  • Yorick's namesake is from William Shakespeare's play Hamlet, in which Yorick is a deceased court jester whose skull is exhumed by a gravedigger.
  • Yorick's ability names are references to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
  • Yorick is currently being reworked by Alexander "Xelnath" Brazie, the status of his upcoming kit can be found here
  • Yorick is currently the only champion removed from the free champion rotation
  • Yorick is the only champion to have been removed from the free champion rotation but not the sale rotation
  • In his splash art, Yorick stands on a tomb with "MORI" engraved. Mori is Yorick's family's surname, and has meanings relating to death or dying in several languages.
    • "Memento mori" is a Latin phrase that was mostly used in medieval Europe that means "Remember, thou art mortal". It is the most common phrase that uses the word "mori".
    • His quote "You will remember Yorick Mori." is a clear reference to the very same phrase.
  • Yorick is the first champion to be released before his champion spotlight, mainly due to Phreak being delayed on a flight back from Dreamhack in Sweden.
  • Yorick has one of the most varied skillsets in the game, with an auto-attack modifier, a ground targeted AoE, an enemy targeted instant-cast and an allied targeted instant-cast. Among these are both controllable and incontrollable pets.
  • Yorick and ShacoSquare.png Shaco are the only champions to have both Automatic and Controllable pets.
  • Yorick is one of the four champions to have abilities which allow them to continue to attack after death. Yorick's ability being Omen of Death.png Omen of Death and the others being KarthusSquare.png Karthus's Death Defied.png Death Defied, KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw's Icathian Surprise.png Icathian Surprise and ZyraSquare.png Zyra's Rise of the Thorns.png Rise of the Thorns.
    • However, Yorick is the only champion to have his ability to reanimate after death not be his passive.
    • Yorick's ghost is temporarily coded as a champion, so killing it would count as a champion kill. This only works however if the real champion has already died.
  • Yorick's job as a ferryman for the Shadow Isles's undead denizens is a reference to the Psychopomp who are creatures, spirits, angels, or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls to the afterlife.
  • Yorick represents Sloth as one of the Seven deadly sins.

Quotes
