Scyther seems to be based on the {{wp|Tenodera aridifolia|Japanese giant mantis}} with arms shaped like {{wp|scythe}}s. It also possesses some {{wp|reptile|reptilian}} characteristics (e.g. teeth, claws, bipedal stance) that give it similarities to {{wp|Dromaeosauridae|dromaeosaurid}} dinosaurs. As indicated in its Pokédex entries, it may also be based on a ninja.
