Trivia

Development
  • Ziggs is the first champion designed by Meddler.[1] RiotRunaan and Harrow were the creative designers,[2] and Isso09 was part of the team which did his concept.[3]
  • Ziggs is voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz, who also voices RumbleSquare.png Rumble.
  • Ziggs is named after a nickname for game designer Ziegler.[4]
  • His initial concept was "Ivan, the Mad Bomber" and was a Human explosive expert.
    • Some concept designs from this champion were used for NautilusSquare.png Nautilus as well.
  • Initially, his Hexplosive Minefield.png Hexplosive Minefield was going to be his ultimate, but it was later replaced by Mega Inferno Bomb.png Mega Inferno Bomb.[5]
  • Ziggs' smile bears a resemblance to the Cheshire Cat from the 1865 novel Alice in Wonderland, due to the lack of canine teeth.
    • Ziggs also has a similar earring to that of the Cheshire Cat from the game American McGee's Alice.
General
  • Ziggs is the first and only champion so far to have all their abilities, excluding innates, be of the same type - ground-targeted area of effect skillshots.
  • ZiggsSquare.png Ziggs is, along with CaitlynSquare.png Caitlyn, LissandraSquare.png Lissandra, RumbleSquare.png Rumble, SionSquare.png Sion, VarusSquare.png Varus, ViSquare.png Vi and XerathSquare.png Xerath, one of the few champions that can CC themselves.
  • Ziggs' dance is a reference to the "Indian Midget Superstar". A side-by-side comparison can be seen here .
  • The design for the Mega inferno bomb is very similar to actual nuclear weapons mechanisms, as seen here
Quotes
  • Ziggs' joke could be a reference to "The Mask" where Jim Carrey eats a bomb in which explodes in his stomach and belches fire.
  • A few of Ziggs laughs sound similar to that of the Jockey's laughs from Left 4 Dead 2.
  • In latinoamerican servers the phrase "I’m going, I’m going" is changed for "Me encanta el olor de los explosivos por la mañana" ("I love the smell of explosives in the morning") in honour to the phrase "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" of the film Apocalypse Now.
  • Ziggs is the only champion that automatically emotes without the player making him do so. Ziggs laughs by himself frequently when moving, as his movement animation has him laughing.
