General

  • Nidalee was the first of eight champions to have more than 4 abilities (the others being Elise Elise, GnarSquare Gnar, HeimerdingerSquare Heimerdinger, Jayce Jayce, Karma Karma, Lee Sin Lee Sin, and Rek'SaiSquare Rek'Sai)
  • Nidalee, Elise Elise, GnarSquare Gnar, Jayce Jayce, and Kayle Kayle are the only champions to be both ranged and melee.
  • Nidalee is one of a few champions to have multiple textures in per skin (one for human form and another matching one for cougar)
  • Nidalee was the first champion to feature a transformation ability (the others being Elise Elise, GnarSquare Gnar Shyvana Shyvana, and Swain Swain)
  • Nidalee has four running animations (human run, human brush sprint, cougar run, cougar brush sprint)
  • Pounce Pounce was the first ability to feature a static cooldown (was removed in V1.0.0.124)
  • Nidalee has a hidden passive called 'On the Prowl' (referencing cougars) which grants nearby lower-leveled allied champions 5 experience every 5 seconds.
  • A maximum-range Javelin Toss Javelin Toss has the second-highest damage of any single-targeted basic ability in-game (only surpassed by a fully-channeled Drain Drain) and higher damage than many ultimate abilities.
  • Nidalee was deemed overpowered/obnoxious in the Ultra Rapid Fire game mode (2014 edition) and was ultimately disabled in non-custom games.
  • After her visual rework, her felid forms received morphological features from cougars' bigger relatives, like mane, higher shoulders than haunches, long skull & jaws, & occasionally protruding fangs of sabre-toothed cats and cat-like relatives.
    • Peculiarly, her cougar & even Bewitching & Pharaoh cat forms can roar, like four biggest cats: tiger, lion, jaguar, & leopard.
  • The game client's shop filters Nidalee as a Support despite her no longer having that tag as a secondary one.
  • Given that she's a wild child, it is unknown how Nidalee could've learn to speak languages fluently; since in real life, feral humans who learn their first language late in life never master such linguistic aspects like phonology, morphology, & syntax.

Development

  • Nidalee was released a day later than announced.
  • Nidalee was rumored to have a special stackable damage over time that could be applied by all her damaging abilities as well as Prowl Prowl granting her stealth for 2 seconds when leaving brush in cougar form (both effects actually existed and were removed prior to her release)
  • Nidalee used to have a bug where Primal Surge Primal Surge applied Swipe's Swipe's damage (meaning she could kill her teammates if they were low enough).

Quotes

  • Nidalee is one of the few champions to have an extra set of emote animations (taunt, laugh, and dance animations each for human and for cougar, without voice changes)

Relations

  • Nidalee's friendship with Udyr Udyr might stem from both being in tune with the (spirits of the) wild.
  • Nidalee's rivalry with Rengar Rengar might stem from territorial hunting disputes.
