* Espeon shares its {{pkmn|category}} name with {{p|Sunflora}} and {{p|Volcarona}}. They are all known as the Sun Pokémon.
* Espeon was designed by [[Atsuko Nishida]].<ref></ref>
* Espeon has blue inner ears in the games, but in other forms of media, such as the anime, they are often purple.
Because of its feline appearance, Espeon appears to be based on the legend of the {{wp|bakeneko}} and the {{wp|nekomata}}, both Japanese mythological creatures depicted as mysterious, intelligent, fork-tailed goblin cats. The orb on its forehead also shares similar traits to that of the {{wp|Carbuncle (mythology)|carbuncle}}, a Latin-American mythological beast that had a jewel on its forehead. The red coloring of the jewel could be a reference to a {{wp|lunar eclipse}}, an event in which the moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow, making it appear red in color.
Its large ears can be traced to {{wp|caracal}}s, {{wp|sphynxoriental catshorthair}}s, and {{wp|lynx}}es. Inspiration of the pink-purple coloring of its fur can be drawn from sphynx cats as well. Espeon's ability to sense minute shifts in the air with its sensitive fur mirrors the cat's ability of using its sensitive whiskers to detect the slightest directional change in a breeze.
