The reasoning for Gavid's cancelation was that he didn't fit with the game's artistic theme. Confirmation of his cancelation came in the 2010 Harrowing map skin for Summoner's Rift, where a coffin containing Gavid (along with two others each containing 20px Averdrian and 20px Tabu) could be seen, effectively serving as the final 'nail in the coffin'.
- Data extracted from the game files
- The icon for 20px Animate Vitalis was recycled for the now removed แม่แบบ:Bi buff, which used to be obtained by slaying the now removed 20px Rabid Wolf on pre-update Twisted Treeline.
- The icon for 20px Animate Entangler was recycled for 20px Baron Nashor's Tentacle Knockup active.
- 20px Zyra closely mirrors Gavid's abilities and thematic, except for 20px Animate Vitalis.
