===Origin===
Marshtomp is based on the {{wp|Necturus|mudpuppy}} or {{wp|mudskipper}}. It may also be based on the {{wp|axolotl}} or {{wp|Gilled lungfish|gilled African lungfish}}, like its {{p|Mudkip|pre-evolved form}}. The single fin on Marshtomp's head is reminiscent of the {{wp|Murmillo|Murmillo helmet}} worn by murmillo-class Roman gladiators or the {{wp|Corinthian helmet}} (with a horsehair crest) which is worn by Greek Hoplites. "Murmillo" is also a Greek word for a type of saltwater fish.
