Trivia[]

  • Cassiopeia is voiced by Template:W, Who also voices Template:Ci, Template:Ci, Template:Ci, and Template:Ci.
  • Cassiopeia was the last champion released in 2010.
  • Cassiopeia is the third champion to have an Art Spotlight. She features a unique Spotlight, showing the animation process of her taunt.
  • Cassiopeia generally has an "Ancient Greece" theme, as indicated with her name and appearance in three of her skins (Classic, Siren and Mythic).
  • Cassiopeia is the third champion, after Template:Ci and Template:Ci, to take part in an interview.
  • Cassiopeia and Template:Ci are one of the five pairs of sibling champions. (The other siblings champions include Template:Ci and Template:Ci, Template:Ci and Template:Ci, Template:Ci and Template:Ci, Template:Ci and Template:Ci)
  • Katarina's quote about Cassiopeia is a direct reference to Lady Macbeth's description of how Macbeth should be: "...look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under't" (I.v.65-66).
  • Template:W is a constellation in the northern sky, listed by the 2nd century Greek astronomer Template:W.
  • The symbolic meaning of the constellation Cassiopeia is "Seated Queen", further referenced by her classic skin.
  • Her ability Template:Ai may refer to Greek mythology, where Template:W is a contagious power that has an independent life of its own. Until purged by the sacrificial death of the wrongdoer, society would be chronically infected by catastrophe.
  • Cassiopeia is the first champion to currently have a difficulty rating of 100, the second being Template:Ci.
  • Cassiopeia is heavily based on Template:W, a Template:W from Greek mythology.
    • They both were beauties before they got turned into monsters.
    • They both have relations with snakes. Cassiopeia being half-snake half-human and Medusa having snake hair.
    • Cassiopeia's ultimate, Template:Ai, turns enemy champions into stone, similar to how Medusa's glance turned her enemies into stone.
    • Cassiopeia bears resemblance to a combination of a naga, dracaenae, or snake woman, and Medusa.
  • Cassiopeia may be a reference to Queen Cassiopeia from Greek mythology who boasted of her great beauty. Poseidon punished her by demanding her daughter Andromeda be sacrificed to the Kraken. Perseus, having just slain the Gorgon Medusa, slew the sea monster and saved the princess.
    • Cassiopeia might also be a reference to Template:W, the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra VII was a temptress who seduced various powerful men like Julius Caesar. She killed herself using a bite from an asp.
  • There's an interesting link between Cassiopeia and summer version of Summoner's Rift - whenever Cassiopeia is present on it, the snakes (normally randomly appearing doodad-creatures in the bushes) don't appear on the map. It also means that Cassiopeia is the first champion to actually affect the appearance of a map during the whole match.

  • Cassiopeia is the only Champion currently able to utilize the effects of other Champion's abilities. Template:Cai and Template:Ai, and Template:Cai can be used to shorten Template:Ai cooldown.
