Slowking's shell makes it similar to {{wp|hermit crab}}s, though it is physically similar to a{{wp|giant otter}}s and {{wp|Hippopotamusgiant salamanders}}. Its shell "crown" may also be a reference to the mythical {{wp|sazae-oni}}, a magical sea demon of Japanese folklore distinguished by its spiny "sazae" or "turban shaped" snail shell. It is also based on a king, as the growth around its neck is based on a king's {{wp|Ruff (clothing)|ruff}} while its shell is similar to a crown.
