Trivia Edit

  • Malphite was designed by Coronach.
  • When Malphite punches the ground with his Šablóna:Ai attack, he leaves a glowing fist imprint of the Riot Games logo.
  • Malphite is one of a few champions that actually have multiple textures in one skin. When his Šablóna:Ai passive is broken, he appears as though he is made of molten rock until the passive recharges and then reverts back to his normal texture. When Malphite activates Šablóna:Ai he has a different type of molten rock texture with glowing arms.
  • Malphite's original cost was 3150 Šablóna:IP. It was lowered to 1350 Šablóna:IP on April 12, 2011.
  • Malphite's dance resembles Šablóna:W called Ginga. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here .

Quotes Edit

Lore Relations Edit

  • Šablóna:Ci meditates near the caverns surrounding the Institute of War.
