Necrozma could be based on the concept of {{wp|prism}}s and {{wp|light refraction}}. It may also incorporate similarities, both literal and symbolic, to {{wp|black dwarf}}s, {{wp|black hole}}s, or {{wp|neutron star}}s.
Necrozma's Dusk Mane and Dawn Wings forms may be based on the concept of {{wp|Solar eclipse|solar}} and {{wp|lunar eclipse}}s, respectively. The forms' alternate names in Japanese, 日食 ''nisshoku'' (solar eclipse) and 月食 ''gesshoku'' (lunar eclipse) can also be literally translated as "eating the sun/moon", reflecting how Necrozma absorbs Solgaleo or Lunala to assume those forms. Its Ultra Necrozma form may be based on {{wp|giant star}}s or {{wp|supernova}}e. Design-wise, Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma retain Solgaleo's {{wp|lion}} and Lunala's {{wp|bat}} bases, respectively, while Ultra Necrozma resembles a four-winged {{wp|wyvern}}. The fact that Necrozma transforms into a {{type|Dragon}} could be based on legends about {{wp|Kihawahine}}, a Hawaiian dragon goddess.
