Trivia

Origin

Dunsparce is based on the mythical tsuchinoko. Tsuchinoko are 30 cm to 80 cm long, with a large head and poisonous fangs. Its body is thicker than its head and tail. The noises it makes resemble squeaks, chirps and snores. Unlike real snakes, which slither from side to side, a tsuchinoko wiggles ahead in a straight line. The tsuchinoko curls its body to leap through the air. Dunsparce also shares some traits with bumblebees, including its stripes, tiny wings, and stinger-like tail.

Name origin

ノコッチ comes from つちのこ tsuchinoko, a fabled snake creature. The characters are swapped to be のこっち.

Dun can mean grayish yellow or gloomy, and sparse refers to rarity. Dunsparce's name could also be a combination of dunce meaning dull-witted, stupid, or an ignorant person, a dolt, and sparse, which can mean meager.

In other languages

  • German: Dummisel - Includes dumm (stupid).
  • French: Insolourdo - From insolent and lourdeau (graceless).
  • Korean: 노고치 Nogochi
