Main article: Vi (Development)
  • Vi is voiced by Cia Court in League of Legends icon.png League of Legends and Legends of Runeterra icon.png Legends of Runeterra.
  • Vi is voiced by Hailee Steinfeld in Arcane.[1]
  • Vi's Japanese voice actor is Yū Kobayashi, whom also voices her in the Japanese dub of Arcane.[2]
  • Vi was conceived as a girl on rollerskates called Ruby but went in and out of development for two years before becoming the Piltover Enforcer.[3]
  • Originally, her gauntlets were a lot darker and had a number of dents and dings in them. Thematically, this made sense as they'd likely be dirty and beatup given the number of doors Vi punches through on a daily basis. The in-game read was terrible however. The muted colors didn't pop from the background, and the dents looked like visual glitches at game height. So for release, the dents were removed and the colors were brightened up, making Vi start reading significantly better as a result.[4]

Main article: Vi (Character)
  • Vi's real name is revealed to be Violet in Arcane (TV Series)/Season 1.
  • Vi was known as Inmate 516, which is a direct reference for her name when written as Roman numerals (DXVI as a whole or VIVI as each individual number).
  • Vi is a Zaunite sumpsnipe who became a Guardian of Piltover, later in the events in Arcane (TV Series).
  • Vi's prototype Atlas Gauntlets were created by Vaido Violante, a former apprentice of Covin Reveck, Orianna's Orianna's father. This is retconned in the Arcane (TV Series) as in the show, Vi's Atlas Gauntlets were invented by Jayce Jayce alongside his partner Viktor Viktor. In the show, the Atlas Gauntlets were a Hextech device that was originally meant to help miners mine in a quarry more efficiently without fatigue.
  • In previous drafts of the lore, Vi remembers nothing from her early childhood, even her name 'Vi' comes from the tattoo on her cheek.
    • In Arcane, the tattoo, which is the shortened version of her name, was made during her time in prison among many others.
  • Before the official confirmation with the release of Arcane, Vi and Jinx Jinx were often theorized by the community to be sisters. The reference to this on Jinx's release was her quote, "You think I'm I'm crazy? You should see my sister". Though there was never any implication that the sister was Vi Vi, players equated Jinx's antagonization of Vi specifically as "sisterly bonding".
    • Incidentally, Jinx Jinx only antagonized Vi specifically on English-speaking servers. Other servers showed her antagonizing other champions, such as Lucian Lucian.
    • Hermit later says to Vi, "You look like your sister! Er, wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that...". This could be a confirmation that Vi has a sister, but could also be an example of Lyte repeating rumours he's heard from players (such as the rumour he heard from players that Lux Lux and Ezreal Ezreal were dating, which Lux herself later denied after hearing the rumour ).
    • There is a significant indication that the pair did grow up together, however. With Vi currently suffering from amnesia, Jinx Jinx has taken it upon herself to try and trigger her memories.
    • In an interview with Ghostcrawler, he mentioned that Jinx and Vi are "sisters", but later confirmed he was merely stating what he thought was true, and that the narrative team said otherwise.
  • Vi is in her 20s, and around 5 years older than Jinx Jinx.
    • Vi is estimated to be around 14- 16 years old during the first act of Arcane and is estimated to be around 20- 23 years old during the second and third act.[5]
    • However, Council Archives state she was 17 years old during the first act.
  • Vi is left-handed and weighs 8,140 lbs with her gauntlets on.
