* Nuzleaf shares its category with {{p|Impidimp}}. They are both known as the Wily Pokémon.
Nuzleaf may be based on an {{wp|acorn}}, and possibly {{wp|Pinocchio}} as well. They may also be based on the ''{{wp|tengu}}'', tricky Japanese goblins who are known for their long noses, cruel tricks, ability to read minds, and the ranks of 小天狗 ''ko-tengu'', tengu of lesser rank. Its tendency to use a flute to cause fear in others is reminiscent of {{wp|Pan (god)|Pan}}, the Greek god of nature, who played reed pipes and was known for the ability to strike inherent terror into the hearts of others.
