===Origin===
Cobalion appears to be based on the character of {{wp|Athos (fictional character)|Athos}} from the novel ''{{wp|The Three Musketeers}}''. Like Athos, Cobalion is the oldest and the ''de facto'' leader of the group. Like the others of its trio, its appearance is based on {{wp|ungulates}}. It bears close resemblance to a {{wp|markhor}} (a type of goat) and species of antelope such as the {{wp|Greater Kudu|greater kudu}} or {{wp|Common Eland|eland}}. Like the other members of its trio, its nose is shaped like that of a sheep or goat.
