Blitzkrieg (lightning warfare) was invented by the Germans in ww2 and it was a new approach of mechanised/tank warfare. Their spearheads would encircle enemy positions, catching them by surprise.

Even though Blitzcranck is not strictly a tank, the similarities are striking don't you think?

Blitz (lightning) krieg (war)
Blitz (lightning) crank (robot)

Blitzkrieg has no relation to Blitzcrank, blitzcrank uses lightning as his ult and is a robot.

Gangbang (polyamorous intercourse) was invented by cavemen in prehistoric times and it was a new approach of biological warfare. Their spearheads would encircle the enemy, catching him by surprise.

Even though Gangplank is not strictly a gang, the similarities are striking don't you think?

I don't think so, I think it's just Blitz for lightning. 'Cause you know, he has his static field and stuff...

They never encircled anything during a Blitzkrieg. A Blitzkrieg is a fast, combined-arms strike deep into the heart of an enemy's line. There is no entrenchment, just a constant push forward without sparing arms to protect your flanks. Once broken, the march would either press on or chase down the fleeing regiment.

Blitzcrank is a robot with a funny voice.

Indeed, Gangplank blows whatever his "pistol" is loaded with on friend(Raise Morale) or foe(Parrley) alike!

If he is feeling frisky, he goes all out with his "Cannon Barrage" where he makes everyone get up close with his balls.
