Trivia

  • Honchkrow's Speed is lower then its pre-evolution's Speed, likely because it is plumper.
  • No other Pokémon besides its pre-evolution Murkrow has the same type combination as Honchkrow.
  • Since its debut, Honchkrow has been used in battle by the leaders of the two main villainous teams in the Generation IV games, Cyrus and Giovanni.

Origin

Honchkrow is based on of a crow, most resembling the hooded crow. While its pre-evolution Murkrow originally appeared to be based on witches of western folklore, Honchkrow's appearance is reminiscent of a Crime boss, giving a new interpretation to Murkrow as a gang member under it. Honchkrow's crest resembles a wide-brimmed fedora hat, an article of clothing often associated with mobsters. Its chubbier appearance may be a result of forcing the Murkrow to preform its deeds instead of doing them itself.

Name origin

Its name is a combination of "honcho", a leader or boss, and "crow".

Don is Spanish for lord and is a title for Mafia leaders, while 烏 karasu is Japanese for crow. Donkarasu literally means "Lord of crows".

In other languages

  • German: Kramshef - From Krähe (crow) and Chef (boss).
  • French: Corboss - From corbeau (crow) and boss.
  • Korean: 돈크로우 Donkeurou
  • Chinese: 暗鴉王 An Ya Wang
