Carracosta appears to draw inspiration from Archelon, the largest known species of sea turtle from the Late Cretaceous period. Its blue skin and dark gray carapace give it the same color scheme as the leatherback sea turtle. The fact it eats steel beams draws from the fact that sea turtles are able to bend metal bars with their jaws. The front of its shell also bears resemblance to a bulletproof vest.
Carracosta may be a combination of carapace (a hard, protective covering, i.e. a shell) and costa (Latin, Spanish and Portuguese for coast, a reference to its habitat). Carra may also refer to the Carrara fossil formation, which contains numerous trilobite fossils.
Abagoura may be a combination of 暴れる abareru (to thrash or act violently), 肋 abara (rib cage), and 甲羅 kōra (shell).
