* Before [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl]] were released, many believed Lucario to be a [[legendary Pokémon]], based on its starring role in [[Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]].

===Origin===
==Origin==
   
Lucario appears to be based on the Egyptian god {{wp|Anubis}}, who has the head of a {{wp|jackal}}. It also seems to be based on an Egyptian boxer. {{wp|Boxing}} is a sport that is believed to have origins in Egypt. The black appendages on the back of its head are used to detect the auras of creatures and objects around it. While Lucario reads aura, it closes its eyes, and thus the appendages and the way they look "tied" around its face appear to be based on someone being blindfolded.

===Name origin===
   
Lucario's name may be ''orikaru'' said syllabicly-backwards, which is Japanese for ''{{wp|oracle}}''. It may also be a reference to Cairo, Egypt. The "lu" may come from "lupine," meaning "wolf," in reference to its canine-like appearance.
