==Trivia==
* Despite Special Attack being its lowest stat, Mandibuzz awards Special Attack {{EV}}s when defeated.
* According to interviews with [[Ken Sugimori]] in ''Nintendo Dream'', Vullaby and Mandibuzz were added late into the development of {{2v2|Black|White}}. When Mandibuzz was originally created by [[James Turner]], it was unrelated to {{p|Braviary}}, but it was later decided to use its design as a counterpart to Braviary.
* Mandibuzz and Vullaby can be seen as counterparts to {{p|Braviary}} and {{p|Rufflet}}. Mandibuzz and Braviary share a base stat total of 510, evolve from their pre-evolutions starting at level 54, and are both part {{t|Flying}}. Mandibuzz and Vullaby are exclusive to {{game|Black and White|s|Black}}, {{game|Black and White|s|Black 2|2}}, {{game3|Sun and Moon|Moon|s}} and {{game3|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Moon|s}}, while Braviary and Rufflet are to White, White 2, Sun and Ultra Sun. Whereas Mandibuzz and Vullaby can only be female, Braviary and Rufflet can only be male.
 
===Origin===
Mandibuzz is based on an {{wp|Old World vulture}}, most closely resembling a {{wp|lappet-faced vulture}} with the prominent ruff of a {{wp|white-rumped vulture}}. Its design also bears resemblance to stereotypical "savages", {{wp|barbarian}}s, or {{wp|caveman|cavemen}}. The row of teeth around its waist resembles an apron.
