===Origin===
Skarmory has much in common with the {{wp|Andean Condorcondor}} and {{wp|Crane (bird)|crane}}s, birds whichthat are held in high esteem in Japan. It is also similar to many mythological, metallic birds such as the {{wp|Stymphalian birdbirds}}s, the {{wp|Gagana}}, and the {{wp|Alicanto}}. In addition, its design resembles a {{wp|wyvern}}.
 
Its concept could also be a pun on 鶴 ''tsuru'' (crane), referencing a paper crane, and 剣 ''tsurugi'' (sword). Its wings also resemble a Japanese paper {{wp|hand fan}}.
