Chinese artwork Edit
Xin Zhao was designed by Geeves.
Xin Zhao was released concurrently with Season One.
Xin Zhao is voiced by Šablóna:W.
Xin Zhao has one of the longest auto attack range out of all the melee champions, tied with Šablóna:Ci , Šablóna:Ci, Šablóna:Ci and Šablóna:Ci.
In the Chinese version of the game, Xin Zhao's name is rendered as Zhao Xin (赵信), as Chinese names are written with their family name first.
His name Xin (信) means "Trust" in Chinese.
"Zhao" in Chinese is a unique character, only usable as a last name.
He shares the family name of Šablóna:W (赵云), a famous general during the Three Kingdoms Era and a friend of Liu Bei. Like Yun, he uses a spear as weapon.
He may also be named after Šablóna:W, a Han general.
Xin Zhao is the only champion that references Asian culture but does not belong to Ionia.
Xin Zhao's joke is a reference to the question, "What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?" This in turn is a reference to the Chinese word Maodun, 矛盾 (lit. spear and shield) which means "Contradiction".
In the French version of the game, Xin Zhao's /joke is different. It is a reference to Šablóna:W of The Adventures of Tintin comic book series. It refers to when Tintin meets Wang's son for the first time.
In the German version of the game, Xin Zhao's joke translates to: "Find me an immovable object, so that I can bury you under it!"
Imperial Xin Zhao is likely a reference to the famed Chinese general Šablóna:W, whom Xin Zhao shares many characteristics with.
In the Chinese novel, Šablóna:W, Zhao Yun is described as a courageous, loyal, and heroic warrior, depicting him surviving insurmountable odds many times single-handedly.
Viscero Xin Zhao is a reference to his time as a gladiator fighting in the Noxian arena, The Fleshing.
Winged Hussar Xin Zhao is a commemorative skin created to celebrate the launch of League of Legend's Polish servers.
Šablóna:W were a type of cavalry fielded by Poland, and later by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the XVI and XVII century. They were famed for their deadly charges.
The skin was temporarily exclusive to participants in the Polish Closed Beta, but was leaked to the EU and US, forcing them to release it.
Commando Xin Zhao is a reference to the Imperial Guard of the Šablóna:W series.
Warring Kingdoms Xin Zhao is a homage to Koei's design of Zhao Yun in Dynasty Warriors, a game based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Xin Zhao was saved from Noxian imprisonment by Šablóna:Ci grandfather, Jarvan Lightshield the Second.
