    • Yasuo- Yone is one of six pairs of sibling champions (the others are Cassiopeia - Katarina, Kayle - Morgana, We are - Lux, Nasus - Renekton y Darius - trot).
    • The flute that Yasuo plays in his dance gesture is most likely a Shakuhachi (harmonica for Yasuo the Outlaw; wind controller for PROJECT: Yasuo).
      • His classic 'dance' refers to an interpretation of this instrument. [1]
        • You can see a side-by-side comparison here.
        • Yasuo is the first champion to have a gesture that will be oriented in the same way (dance gesture, facing the lower right corner of the screen), no matter which direction Yasuo was facing. Akali is the second.
    • Yasuo's design is largely based on the Japanese rōnin, a samurai whose masters had been killed or stripped of titles and lands. Many rōnin became mercenaries, bodyguards, or even criminals.
    • The length of Yasuo's sword is roughly that of a tachi or even an ōdachi. However, he uses it pointed like the shortest katana.
    • Yasuo [jasɯ̟ᵝo] is a Japanese masculine name, translated as 康夫 (roughly "peaceful man") in the Japanese localization.
      • From Old Japanese * yasu- "cheap, easy> peaceful" [2] and the masculine morpheme * wo. [3]
      • The name of his older half brother 米 Yone comes from Japonico * jənai "[husked] rice".

      • "Beautiful... sword... Boots? "Could be referencing 'Pro as the heck guide for Master Yi'.

    Yasuo Duskbringer
    • Some of his interactions with his counterpart, Riven Bringer of the Dawn, have references to two poems written by the British aristocrat and poet George Gordon Byron.
      • His murder dates to Dawnbringer Riven, "Long, long, I'll be sorry, too deep to say." And "Pale your cheek grew, and cold.", As well as his mockery towards her, "How should I greet you?" - "With silence and tears." They are from the poem When the two of us parted ways with Lord Byron.

    • He references and looks like Miyamoto Musashi and / or Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown through his iconic ponytail design shared with these people, where in Musashi's case, it is in reference to the common visual design with which he is depicted. in fictional media.
      • Haoumaru himself is also based on Miyamoto Musashi.
        • Another note regarding Yasuo is how his Tempest of Steel on Chinese servers is named / doubles as 斬 鋼 閃 (Zhǎngāngshǎn, lit. Cutting Steel Flash), which when read in Japanese with the same characters (Zankousen) have exactly the same name as Haoumaru's strong court and one of his special attacks.
      • Yasuo's mockery in most of its aspects (save for demonic form of Yasuo Duskbringer) involves him drinking liquids from his bamboo flask, then spits the liquids on his sword to "bless" it. This is another nod to Haoumaru through a habit made by him in the battle introductions of his series.
