Talk:Honchkrow (Pokémon)

Like I preffered to see it as Doncrow instead of "honch"... And by the way, "don" is not Spanish but Italian for the bosses of the mafia. "Don" on Spanish means "sir", and that's on a very low echelon beneath "lord". Other thing, I also added the reference to the 10th movie where this pokemon appears. --Gaudhi 20:32, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Donkarasu is the Japanese name for it. Honchkrow is the English name. Don is italian for father and english for mafia boss and spanish for a title of respect for a manPokeManiac102 20:36, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Honchkrow comes from the fact that it's the head honcho. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 22:56, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Oidan? I don't see that in Honchkrow's name. Cerberus 01:41, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone else think that it kind of looks like a wizard, similar to how Mismagius is a witch? Also, the "hat" and "beard" remind me of Dumbledore. YinYang 23:26, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

I've always thought it's head looked like a witch hat, but as a whole I don't think it looks like a witch or wizard. Porygon-Z 00:49, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
That's what Murkrow is for. It has the wicth's hat. Honchkrow has a fedora. —βetA ZerØ 10:17, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

I think it looks more like a mafia don's hat and clothing than a wizard or witch, it'd fit more with the Pokémon's theme too. "Callum"

Seig Heil?

Does anybody else see this? Everytime I see his pic it reminds me of the pidgeons from Mel Brooks' film/play The Producers. Do you think this was intentional? I am the only one who has noticed this?Zabbethx 16:00, 12 May 2009 (UTC)


On the evolution chart, it states that Murkrow does not evolve. I double checked other pokemon that evolve via stones, and they are state that they are just at an unevolved state. This needs to be fixed. I'd do it, but I cant figure out how. --Blaziken=Tahu 18:25, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Does anyone else see the cigar or cigarette in his tail feathers? --Rucario64 22:55, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

No, not really... - Takoto 22:59, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Possible influence for Japanese name

"Donker" is the Dutch word for "dark", perhaps that could've been an influence that could help tie the Japanese name together? Honchkrow is a Dark-type after all. Svenskig (talk) 17:03, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

If the games had any particular tie to the Netherlands, maybe. Like for Kalos, French origins are more likely, or for Alola, Hawaiian origins. Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:20, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
