====Name origin====
Kangaskhan may be a combination of ''{{wp|kangaroo}}'' and ''{{wp|Genghiskhan|Khan Khan(title)}}'', who was the notoriously violent founder and Emperor of the Mongol Empire. This possibly is in reference to how its Pokédex data refers to it becoming "violently enraged" when protecting its child.
 
It may also refer particularly to ''{{wp|Genghis Khan}}'', who was the notoriously violent founder and Emperor of the Mongol Empire. This possibly is in reference to how its Pokédex data refers to it becoming "violently enraged" when protecting its child.
 
Garura is derived from カンガルー (kangaroo) and ルーラー (ruler).
