Rayquaza's design is probably based on the {{wp|Chinese dragon}} and the ''{{wp|lindworm}}''. It'sIts role is similar to that of {{wp|Ziz}} in Hebrew legends. Rayquaza matches the description of the Aztec god {{wp|Quetzalcoatl}}, who was depicted as a flying serpent, and created the boundary between the earth (including the oceans) and the sky. Its trait of being capable of inhabiting the skies, and living there while subsisting on nothing but dew and particles for centuries, also bears aspects of the legendary Chinese xian hermit sages and East Asian dragons.
