Yggdrasil Theory
The deer, namely {{wp|Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór|Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Durathrór}}, are four stags that gnaw on the branches of Yggdrasil, the reason why Xerneas has four differently coloured pairs of horns. There are some rumors circulating that these 4 stags have their horns the color of Xerneas', but no evidence shows this feature. Another deer, called {{wp|Eikthyrnir}}, is a stag that stands on {{wp|Valhalla}}, and grazes on the foliage of the tree of {{wp|Læraðr}}. As Eikthyrnir feeds on this tree, drips of water flow from its horns, and provides water to the beings of Yggdrasil -- whereas water also symbolizes life, so Xerneas' design might have drawn inspiration from it.
The hawk, {{wp|Vedrfolnir}}, sits between the eyes of another bird, an unnamed eagle. They sit on top of the Yggdrasil, giving the squirrel, Ratatosk, gossips to bring to Nidhogg. Another avian being in Norse Mythology is {{wp|Hraesvelgr}}, or the Corpse Swallower, is a giant of ''jotunn'' that takes form of an eagle, sits at the "end of the world" or the northern part of the sky. This may be the inspiration for Yveltal's design.
The serpent, {{wp|Jormungandr}}, also called the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent, is a serpentine creature that is a child of {{wp|Loki}}, along with its siblings, {{wp|Fenrir}} and {{wp|Hel}}. Zygarde 50% forme may be a reference to Jormungand, as keeps the world in balance, wrapping the world's circumference with its huge body.
