For the item, see Morellonomicon Morellonomicon.


Ryan 'Morello' Scott was the Lead Agent Designer on Valorant icon Valorant at Riot Games. He previously worked for Microsoft and ArenaNet before joining Riot. He was the Lead Designer on League of Legends icon League of Legends until moving to Research & Development to work on Valorant in 2016.


Skills: Design Sense + X

Ryan “Morello” Scott began his game career at the ground floor of Microsoft Game Studios' QA, actually delaying the Xbox™ release by catching a dev kit (and then the QA area) on fire, delaying QA operations until the hazmat team could clean out the toxic residue (Washington state has strict OSHA-like laws). After his eyebrows grew back, Ryan moved on to do QA and eventually design at ArenaNet, doing content creation and balance design on the original Guild Wars, and helping create the framework for Guild Wars 2. An incorrigible Seattlite, Ryan brings his near-clinical caffeine addiction, fear of the sun and endless awe about good Mexican food to the office—where he comes from, Mexico is definitely considered a foreign country and exotic. His gaming background spans mostly competitive multiplayer games, including tournament play in Guild Wars, Natural Selection, Battlefield 1942 and Tekken Tag Tournament.

Special Ability

Booming Voice: Whenever Ryan is involved in a discussion, his voice carries through the room, walls, buildings and county lines to ensure everyone everywhere hears him. This ability deafens nearby allies for 2–5 seconds. Scales on blood alcohol content (+10DB per .1% BAC).

Morello & Better Nerf Irelia

Morello- "Better nerf Irelia"

  • Morello, much like several other senior Riot Games staff members (especially) early in League of Legends' lifetime, had an item named after him. In his case, it is the Morellonomicon Morellonomicon.
  • Morello was known for his particular disdain for health sustenance. As such, ever since patch V1.0.0.139 (Equivalent to 2.9) the eponymous Morellonomicon Morellonomicon has consistently had health reduction built into it as an homage to his opinions on that subject.
  • Morello himself became a meme in the League of Legends fanbase, typically due to his love of Irelia Irelia. "Better nerf Irelia" is the quote usually linked with Morello.
