ItsMarowak's triangular eyes are, brown andeyes are also located onin the skull. Marowak is well known for ferocity with its bone club, which it is said to collect from a hidden graveyard.

It lives in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Mountain Pokémon|mountains}} to test its skills.
 
In the [[Alola]] region, Marowak was faced with an abundance of its natural enemies, {{type|Grass}} Pokémon.

After fainting in a battle, a message will pop up saying that the Marowak's soul has finally moved on to the afterlife. This message, however, still shows up even if the player actually caught the Marowak with a Gameshark or Action Replay, given that the Marowak is not supposed to be catchable.
* [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]]: Marowak's ghost appears in the same capacity it did in previous iterations of the [[Generation I]] games, however, it is not battled. Instead, it is calmed by the prescence of its son, Cubone.

* {{g|Super Mystery Dungeon}}: Marowak reappears in Super Mystery Dungeon, his dojo having crumbled and subsequently being put out of business. He is recruited once the player connects with {{p|Makuhita}}.

* In the [[Pokémon Red and Green beta|Pokémon Red and Blue beta]], Marowak was originally known as "Guardia". This is the Spanish word for ''guardian''.
* According to some of Marowak's [[Generation II]] and {{gen|IV}} Pokédex entries, somewhere exists a legendary Marowak graveyard. This is a reference to the {{wp|elephants' graveyard}} of modern myth.
* [[Regional variant|Alolan]] Marowak is the only dual-type Pokémon with a pre-evolution that shares no types with itits pre-evolution.
* Alolan Marowak, {{p|Weavile}}, and {{p|Porygon-Z}} are all the same weight as {{ga|Dawn}}.
* Though Alolan Marowak shares the [[Ability]] {{a|Rock Head}} with Cubone, a Cubone with Rock Head cannot evolve into an Alolan Marowak with the same Ability, as Rock Head is Cubone's first Ability and Alolan Marowak's Hidden Ability.
 
===Origin===
Marowak is reptilian in nature and mayseems to be loosely based on bipedal dinosaurs{{wp|dinosaur}}s. It also could be based on primitive cultures that wore bones for decoration and used them for weapons. The use of its bone {{m|Bonemerang|as a boomerang and as a weapon at the same time}} seems to be a reference to the {{wp|boomerang}}'s original use for hunting in {{wp|Indigenous Australians}} cultures.
 
Alolan Marowak's design may draw inspiration from a {{wp|fire performance|fire dancer}} holding a {{wp|fire staff}} or a {{wp|fire knife}}, a Samoan traditional dance implement. Alolan Marowak also may draw inspiration from the Polynesian concept of {{wp|mana}}, a spiritual essence that exists in all objects and people. It also allows people to imbue their "spirit" into other people and objects for protection or vengeance. Alolan Marowak may have also been inspired by {{wp|Nightmarchers}}, ghosts from Hawaiian mythology that march at night and are feared by the living.
