===Origin===
Kyurem and its two counterparts {{p|Reshiram}} and {{p|Zekrom}} are based on the concept of {{wp|yin and yang}} in {{wp|Taoism}}. Kyurem, however, symbolizes {{wp|Wuji (philosophy)|wuji}}, the absence of yin and yang. In regards to overall design, it appears to be based on a {{wp|theropod}} and a {{wp|European dragon}}, similar to Zekrom. Kyurem's type, {{t|Ice}}, may allude to the absence of energy and the concept of {{wp|absolute zero}}. Kyurem's rock-like body and its origin story of arriving on Earth like a meteor are references to comets, which are largely composed of ice crystals.
