    • Nasus is voiced by Andrés Gutierrez Coto in LATAM, who is also voiced by Jayce and by Abraham Aguilar in EUW, who also doubles to Taric.
    • Nasus literally means "nose" in Latin, referring to the long nose of his golden wolf head.
      • During development it was simply called Anubis Head or 'Ammon' "hidden, invisible". [1]
    • Nasus is one of the few champions to have multiple textures in one skin (another for when Fury of the Sands is active).
    • Nasus - Renekton is one of six pairs of sibling champions (the others are Cassiopeia - Katarina, Kayle - Morgana, We are - Lux, Yasuo- Yone y Darius - trot).
      • Although it is not a pair, Anivia, Ornn y Volibear are also brothers.

    Lore

    • Nasus is more than 3796 years old and less than 3900 years old.
      • He fought alongside Setaka for 3 centuries before she died in the Battle of Icathia, which occurred around 2500 BN.
      • Nasus is the older brother of Renekton and both of them were promoted at the same time.
    • Renek was one of the nations that belonged to the former Empire of  Shurima and was possibly located somewhere near the Renek River. The brothers may have originated here and Renekton may have been named after him.
    • May be immune to the power of Amumu due to her power's connection to death.
    • The Ritual of Ascension takes a long time and Xerath kept him for much longer than normal (thus his body was almost destroyed ...) so he gave time for Nasus and Renekton to return (and a day for mortals, it may only be a few hours for Ascended beings ...).
