Ryze a reference to Final Fantasy VII?

So, I was just noticing some very key similarities between Ryze and a beloved Final Fantasy VII character. Barrett. Ryze. What's the difference, you ask? Would the phrase very little shake your world - just a tiny bit? But I hear you, the naysayer. The dreamslayer. "Where's your proof, Xylo?"

Here's your proof.

By the way, if you haven't played Final Fantasy VII, you're missing out on a deliciously over-rated experience.


° The Faces - Look at their faces. They're nearly identical. Each sporting two eyes, two ears, one mouth, and a nose. Both have a grimace. But the similarities don't end there.

°Facial Hair - Look at those manly men. Both have facial hair. Coincidence? I think not. Groomed by the Greek Gods of Myth, and tempered by the fires of Elo Hell.

°Pants - Both heroes are wearing pants. It should also be noted that each hero has two legs. But that's not all.

°One of These Things Is Not Like The Other - Look at their right hands. Each of them are sporting a non-related weapon or book in them. Look at their left hands - empty.

°Ambulation Devices - Each hero uses two feet sporting thick boots as their method and means of traveling about. Neither is concerned about blisters.

I've made the comparisons visually via a hastily scrawled datamine in MS Paint. All I can present is the evidence, we'll just have to wait for Riot to admit the truth.

That's the only reason this is funny.
