Veigar is named after Veigar Bouius, who previously worked as the Senior QA Analyst for Riot games. He is "quite tall".
All of Veigar's skills (excluding Baleful Strike) refer to space. Event Horizon a reference to the edge of a black hole, the point at which light cannot escape. Dark Matter a reference to the undetectable matter in space. Primordial Burst a reference to the Big Bang, the prevailing cosmological model that explains the early development of the Universe. Equilibrium, which means "Balance", is an important concept in stellar and orbital physics.
Veigar's appearance is similar to the Black Mage, a character from the Final Fantasy series.
Veigar's name has two pronunciations: /veɪ'ɡɚ/ (vey-ger) and /vī'ɡɑɹ/ (vai-gahr), the former being Riot's official pronunciation of his name. The latter is mostly used in Germanic-speaking countries and isn't considered incorrect.
Veigar is one of several champions that can, in theory, infinitely increase a stat by using an ability. Veigar can continuously increase his ability power with his Baleful Strike. The others are Bard, Kindred, Nasus, Sion, and Thresh.
When Veigar uses his ultimate to kill an enemy champion, he will laugh malevolently.
Veigar possess the most laugh emotes of any champion, at 6.
Veigar's quotes "I will swallow your soul!" and "Even now, your loved ones suffer!" are similar to quotes from The Evil Dead franchise.
