Oh, I thought you meant in the naming. Not all Void things are devourers - the next one will really expand your imagination on what can be in the Void.

Yay!

Well, for Cho, simply going by his classic artwork, his mouth is very large and prominent, that aside, it's also one of his primary forms of combat.

More importantly, inside his kit are the abilities: Carnivore, Feral Scream and Feast. Carnivore and Feast are in the same boat, Cho consumes his enemies to improve himself (regenerate or gain more health respectively). Feral Scream, though not devouring, is definitely mouth-related as that is the attack's place of origin.

The mouth theme is rounded out in his lore: "Cho'Gath even appears to feed on its predations, growing and swelling as it gorges itself." I'm drawing a connection between the mouth and consumption, as both Cho and Kog'Maw consume violently (well, Kog in his lore anyway).

Whenever I tried to come up with a Void hero for fun, I'd always try to center around the mouth theme, but Malz's voidlings do leave room for a more insectoid visual theme with Voidborn. From a lore perspective, it might be nice to mention something about how Kha'Zix, rather than keeping trophies, consumes and absorbs his foes to adapt? Or something. Just how I'd have handled it. Sorry if I'm rambling.

Malz shoots a laser beam out of his mouth and kassadin barfs on **** with his E. I think its a void thing.

Well, I'd never seen that before, so no!

Cho's Mouth Theme is Spawn's Violator and OMNOMNOMing everything, but aside that, Morello, say me one thing that came into my mind...

What if Zix was able to focus his evolutions into the same path multiple times? I mean, it sounds ME interesting the possibility to overly adapt towards certain paths, like going FULL DAMAGE!!! on his Q or letting go of everything else and adapt to stealth much more.

You guys can call him a hydralisk. I'm going to keep calling Kha'zix a shiny Scyther.
