===Origin===
Snorunt is based on a ''yukinko'', a childlike spirit in {{wp|Japanese mythology}} said to emerge when it snows, as well as the ''{{wp|zashiki -warashi}}'', a mischievous spirit from the folklore of {{wp|Iwate Prefecture}}. It also seems to be a stylized version of a person wearing a ''yuki mino'', a type of traditional winter wear from the snowy parts of Japan that consists of a conical snow-cloak made of straw. Generally, ''yukinko'' are depicted as small, elf-like creatures wearing ''yuki mino''.
