His quote "Mess with the bull and you get the horns!" may be a reference to the Breakfast Club. Said by principal Richard Vernon: Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns.  A side-by-side comparison can be seen here .
Šablóna:Csi may be a reference to the Biblical golden calf.
In his Chinese artwork he has four fingers despite his model only having three. It also shows him having three knuckles (suggesting four fingers) in his classic, black and golden artwork. This mistake is corrected in the Matador Alistar, Unchained Alistar, Longhorn Alistar and Chinese Golden Alistar artworks.
In his Original Splash Arts, some show him with 4 fingers, while others display the correct 3 fingers.
There was originally a bug that the Šablóna:Csi texture would all turn blue, this was however later fixed.
Šablóna:Csi skin is free and obtainable by visiting the Riotgamesinc channel on Youtube and then syncing with the appropriate LoL website. If you do not have the champion, Šablóna:Ci will be given to you for free along with the said skin.
In early 2012, Šablóna:Csi artwork was replaced by the Chinese Classic skin artwork, as well as those ofŠablóna:Ci, Šablóna:Ci, and Šablóna:Ci. These were the first in a long line of many champions to get new artworks on future patches.
However, Alistar's Classic skin artwork is recolored a bit.
