    General

    • The original icon of Bandage Toss shows Amumu in a pose that references Marvel Comics' Spider-Man shooting cobwebs.
    • Amumu can be seen as a cautionary sign in the trailer for the Mac version of the game.
    • Amumu was the third champion to obtain 7 skins.
    • The Amumu dance refers to the dance of the goth children of South Park.
      • A side by side comparison can be seen here.
      • Both, in turn, are parodying the classic "Peanuts dance", a strange dance performed by characters from the Peanuts comic and animated films.
    • When Amumu dies, her pose is that of an Egyptian mummy with her right arm crossed over her left.
      • This is a nod that he was a Shuriman prince when he was alive.
    • Amumu's price dropped from 1350 to 450 according to the release of their music video "The Curse of the Sad Mummy".
    • It was planned that Amumu and Blitzcrank had aspects of Sewing of Chaos, but both were canceled for failing to meet Riot's quality standards.
      • They may return in the future.
    • The look of a sentinel, Sad Mummy Sentinel, refers to Amumu.
    • It has a basic size of 50, which is considered medium.

    Development

    • Amumu is voiced by Inés Blázquez in EUW, who is also voiced by Ahri, Akali, Ashe, Janna and Syndra.
      • It is unknown who her voice actress is in LATAM.
      • Amumu's Japanese voice actress is Makoto Tsumura. [1]
    • During its development it was called SadMummy.

    History

    • Whether Amumu is an undead child or a yordle child has been purposely left ambiguous.
      • There is in-game evidence that supports the theory that Amumu is a yordle with voice lines directed at him:
        •  alttext = Aspect of Original "¿Un yordle? ¡Gah!".
        •  alttext = Aspect of Original "Why would I want the help of a spirit? Nagakabouros is my guide." (Illaoi's line when taunting a yordle)
        •   "I don't understand yordles, they are so fluffy."
    • Amumu is at least 6000 years old, as there are myths and legends about him dating back to the early days of the Shurima Empire.
    • Amumu is a kind of fairy tale or legend in Runeterra. Sometimes it is used as a scary story to scare children, or as a warning story about the dangers of greed and arrogance. For some Shurimans, it represents a story of loneliness and the need for something as simple as friendship and kindness. It's great to imagine the different ways that people could see Amumu. As Amumu has been around for a long time, her story has warped and twisted so much over time that the story has branched out into iterations of the "real" story. And as with most myths, there is truth underneath all those layers of stories.
