Zyra's ability is Rise of the Thorns.png Rise of the Thorns, while the others are KarthusSquare.png Karthus's Death Defied.png Death Defied, KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw's Icathian Surprise.png Icathian Surprise, SionSquare.png Sion's Glory in Death.png Glory in Death, and YorickSquare.png Yorick's Omen of Death.png Omen of Death.
  • Zyra's co-creator, CertainlyT, hinted in the LoL forums that Zyra has three hidden passives. They're confirmed to be:
    • SionSquare.png Sion,KarthusSquare.png Karthus: When either Sion/Karthus or Zyra kills the other, they receive a bonus +2 gold (a reference to Plants Vs. Zombies).
    • MaokaiSquare.png Maokai: Maokai gets +1 movement speed if he's on the same team as Zyra.
    • LeonaSquare.png Leona: Leona's passive causes Zyra to increase in size for a short time.
  • Zyra's dance resembles the basic movements for the dance "Cha-cha-cha".
  • Zyra's passive was called Rise of the Thorns.png Queen of Thorns before being changed to Rise of the Thorns.png Rise of the Thorns.
  • Zyra is the fourth champion to have a special animation while using Recall.png Recall or Teleport.png Teleport in which she looks up and extends red vines in her arms touching the ground.
  • Zyra's name resembles the word "Zahra" in Arabic, which means 'blooming flower'.
  • Zyra's name resembles the word "Zera" in Hebrew, which means 'Seed'.
  • Zyra is the fifth champion to be able to transform, albeit hers has a different mechanic than EliseSquare.png Elise, NidaleeSquare.png Nidalee, ShyvanaSquare.png Shyvana and SwainSquare.png Swain.
  • Zyra's passive,Rise of the Thorns.png Rise of the Thorns, and ultimate, Stranglethorns.png Stranglethorns, have a cyan hue instead of green in her Champion Spotlight.
  • Zyra's Rampant Growth.png Rampant Growth is possibly a reference to the Magic: The Gathering card of the same name.

  • Zyra is the second champion who shares her title with a Rise of the Thorns.png skill name, after VayneSquare.png Vayne.
  • Zyra was speculated to be a stealth champion since her release went along with the new stealth system.
  • Enemies rooted by Grasping Roots have "Rooted, literally" debuff on them for the duration.
  • Her goals are to experience the world from her new perspective. For a being so ancient to suddenly change in such a dramatic fashion, it's like a complete rebirth. In this way, basic survival is still an issue, because she is experiencing the world anew [2].


ZyraSquare.png Original Zyra [S|L]
  • It bears resemblance to Poison Ivy from the DC Universe.
  • It bears similarities to the character Sarah Kerrigan from the Starcraft series - similar appearance and voices, titles Rise of the Thorns and Queen of Blades, and even a quote - Kerrigan saying "This world is mine" and Zyra's "This land is mine".
  • Her hair is similar to that of Jessie from the Pokemon series.
ZyraSquare.png Wildfire Zyra [S|L]
  • Her seed monsters resemble the Iblis monsters from Sonic 06.
ZyraSquare.png Haunted Zyra [S|L]
ZyraSquare.png SKT Zyra [S|L]
  • A tribute skin for Season 3 winners, SK Telecom T1.
  • She shares this theme with VayneSquare.png Vayne, ZedSquare.png Zed, JaxSquare.png Jax and LeeSinSquare.png Lee Sin.


  • ZyraSquare.png Zyra looks down on MaokaiSquare.png Maokai. Personality-wise, Zyra is a predator, a killer, the wild fury of nature, whereas Maokai is the sturdy, defensive, protective force of nature. Zyra loves the power that her new "animal" form gives her, Maokai laments it. They might be the only ones able to show each other the merits of either form. [3]
  • AhriSquare.png Ahri might be a subject of interest to Zyra, since there is some commonality to how they both came to be. Otherwise she would just be a many-tailed snack. [4]
