I didn't read through every page so I don't know if its been said yet but...

I'm pretty sure Elise is derived from Arachne from Greek mythology


Not as I remember it. Arachne was a pretty nice girl, but a bit arrogant, and challenged Athena herself to a sewing duel IIRC. Athena, you know, being the smartest goddess in all of mythology, roflstomped her, and turned her into a spider.

She was nowhere CLOSE to as creepy as Elise is.

Jarvan and Arthas from WoW have many similarities, Mordekaiser is very similar to the Overlord form the Overlord series, Nasus is a reference to Anubis whilst, Renekton although appearing to be Sobek is more like Ammit, Talon is based off of Enzio or Altiar (take your pick), Thresh is based off of the Grim Reaper, Olaf is a lot like the Norse Beserker ( it is in his title ), Ahri look is based off a kitsune but, her lore is more of a succubus'

May have been said but Jarvan VI on one of his skins look like Cao Cao from Dynasty Warriors. Xin Zhou on one of his skins resembles a character from the series too I believe.
