  • Ornn's dance references Attila's dance during the song I've Got a Dream.
    • A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • The language used in the musical accompaniment for The Path To Hearth-Home is described, in-universe, as "Ancient Freljordian".[1] It is based on Old Norse, and can be mostly understood by North Germanic speakers, like Icelanders, Norwegians, Danes, Swedes, etc. & to a lesser extent West Germanic speakers like English, Germans, Netherlanders, etc.
    • The singer is NunuSquare Nunu's mother Layka, voiced by Norwegian-Swedish composer Christine Hals, who has worked on Disney's cartoon Frozen's soundtracks;[2]
    • Ancient Freljordian is linguistically related to the Runeterran lingua franca (real-life English), due to in-universe cognates.
  • Ornn is a pre-Freljordian theonym, with forgotten meaning;[3]
    • Ornn resembles Old Norse verb *oʀna ᚢᛉᚾᚨ "to warm up" < Proto-Germanic *uznanan < PIE *Hus-n̥eh₂-.[4]
  • The Searing Charge horned, caprinine appearance of OrnnSquare Ornn's and his Call of the Forge God summoned element's may be referencing:
  • In-universe, Ornn names hammer after the verb; vice-versa in reality.


  • OrnnSquare Ornn was in development as early as 2013. Some of the earliest concepts by Joshua 'HUGEnFAST' Brian Smith portrayed him as a duo champion, a lava hog, a lava giant, and a lava frog.
  • During development, he was called Living Forge or Blacksmith.[5]
  • Ornn Prototypes:
    • An ultimate that spawned a volcano which erupted boulders he could charge into, causing them to explode.[6]
    • An ability that upgrades to his hammer into a different weapon for a set number of autoattacks: he could either extra hammer it for AOE, refine it into a blade for piercing damage, or make it an axe for some CC.[7]


  • OrnnSquare Ornn crafted many things:
    • The Howling Abyss and the bridge that was constructed above it.
    • Unbreakable Enchanted Ram Door that later came to be wielded by BraumSquare Braum.[8]
    • A fork that later came to be wielded as a trident by a mer-king, likely the king of the Marai.
  • OrnnSquare Ornn is the physical form of the Great Spirit of the Ram, as such spirit walkers like UdyrSquare Udyr can harness a bit of his primal spirit magic.

  • OrnnSquare Ornn had thousands of followers who were known as the Hearthblood. They were all killed as a result of the fight between Ornn and Volibear.
  • OrnnSquare Ornn was the firstborn of the Frejlordian demigod spirits. His siblings include AniviaSquare Anivia, VolibearSquare Volibear, and numerous others such as the "Seal Sister".
    • Ornn hasn't talked to Anivia ever since she accidentally burnt down his Horn Hall (although he doesn't know she was responsible for it as he slept through the fire).
    • Volibear wanted Ornn to craft weapons and armor for his army for a yet unknown war, but he refused, as such Volibear ordered him to tell the Hearthblood to do it, but he refused again in anger. Finaly in an attempt to provoke Ornn, Volibear took a piece of armor from the forge, resulting in them fighting for eight days. Ornn retreated into hiding after the fight after he saw all the death caused between a clash of demigods, and this led many to believe he had died off.
  • OrnnSquare Ornn dug out the Howling Abyss at the request of Serylda (SejuaniSquare Sejuani's ancestor), Avarosa (AsheSquare Ashe's ancestor) and LissandraSquare Lissandra.
