    Development

    • Ekko is voiced by José Antonio Toledano in LATAM and Jesús Barreda in EUW.
    • Ekko is a homophone pun on Echo / ˈɛkoʊ /;
      • from Ancient Greek ἠχώ /ɛː.kʰɔ̌ː/ "sound" (var. Ἠχή /ɛː.kʰɛ̌ː/ & ἦχος /ɛ̂ː.kʰos/)
      • While Ekko himself does not have a sound theme nor does he take it from the nymph of Greek mythology, the idea is that his past self from his constant rewinding of time serves as an echo of the divided timelines he left behind to achieve the results you want (as evidenced by your holographic projections in Parallel Convergence and Cronorruptura).
      • His name also refers to John 'Mikky Ekko' Stephen Sudduth and his first album 'Time'.
      • In addition to the proverbial and literal 'Ekkos of the past' its name, having two Ks (KK) refers to the Rewind symbol ⏪.
    • Its title refers to the girl who leapt through time.
    • Ekko's concept is simplified to 'Time Killer with Rewind'. [2] Its design was inspired by Zilean. [3]
      • Their production names were 'Time Thumper' and 'Time Killer'. [4] In the game it was called 'Genius Punk'.
      • Production started after the release of Kalista, [5] his concept and skills took eight months from start to finish. [6]
    • Examples of Cronorruptura iterations: [7]
      • Ekko globally saves everyone's state (mana, health, cooldown, position, etc.) After 8 seconds, anyone who is not dead returns to the saved state (cannot rewind death). This was discarded because it promoted uncalculated commitments and was quite disruptive. [8]
      • Ekko returns himself and a target enemy champion to wherever they were 4 seconds ago. This was scrapped because it was super powerful.
    • Ekko's release was leaked by both data mining and 4chan's image board.
    • Piltovan's Killer of Cronorruptura was inspired by the 1931 German film METRO. [9]

    Lore

    XII in the 'bat' of Ekko





    • Ekko is a 16-17 year old teenager, younger than Jinx and We. [10]
      • As Jinx and I saw, 'Ekko' is not his real name, but rather what his friends call him. [eleven]
    • Ekko is basically a gifted and unrefined genius who tends to take on more than he can initially handle. He managed to create the Zero-Drive and the Time Rewinder simply through trial and error, and as a result splits the timeline to fuel his perfectionism [12]
    • Ekko primarily uses the Z-Drive to undo his mistakes and find key points to exploit, such as taking down a Vigilnaut (the technologically augmented thug he fought in Seconds). [13]
    • Ekko's body retains some physical effects of the rewind, including physical pain and mental fatigue. [14] [15]
    • Ekko's face paint and the Zero-Drive are shaped like an hourglass, an expression of his personality, as well as the symbol he adopted for himself. [16]
      • Show the same Zaunita street fashion as Jinx and Vi (with Ekko's necklace being identical to the hextech bolts on his gauntlets)
    • Ekko's 'bat' is a second-hand watch that he stole from a Piltover clock tower (as evidenced by the Roman 'XII' at its base) [17]
    • Ekko believes and cares for Zaun and his future despite not fully understanding the bigger picture.
    • As his joke shows, the Zero-Drive sometimes works unexpectedly.
      • Being a makeshift hextech product powered by a shattered crystal of undocumented properties, it might have something to do with it.
        • And that also implies that the The current Zero-Drive is not the first of many broken before.
    • El Time Rewinder works with the Zero-Drive.
      • At first, Ekko had another role in mind (probably a smoke / flash grenade), but several successive malfunctions led to his current incarnation.

    Phrases

    • "I'm not an angel. "and" Yes, put a angel at work. I could take a break. "They could be referencing Pit as Dark Pit in Kid Icarus: Uprising.
    • "It is like if it was made for me. "and" How can I not buy this? "they refer to the pun in their name, the item and the word they came from, as well as that the item is an efficient purchase for Ekko in terms of statistics.
    • "Never go to Full robot. "is a game on a Tropic Thunder quote (" You are never totally late ").
    • "I'll never be like this guy." applies to both Jayce (the selfish fan of the Cocky Piltillos) already Viktor (amoral cyborg is part of Zaun's ethical bankruptcy)
    • "I have seen your future and it has broken bones." looks like "I've seen your death, it was painful" from Zilean.
    • "Do not blink". e Reverse Polarity! "could be quoting Doctor Who.
    • " You give Zaun a bad name. "Could be referring to ou Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi.
    • "I am old enough to buy this. "jokingly means that minors are prohibited from buying spirits.
    • "Tomorrow is the last of my worries" is a reference to The Defender of Tomorrow.
    • Ekko shares quotes with Jayce:
      • "Never look back."

      • "Catch him!"
