Name origin

Rhydon's name may be a reference to rhinoceros. The don may have been inteded to mean lord, however it's also used as a suffix in various dinosaur names, so it could be an reference to those prehistoric creatures as well. Its Japanese name is a combination of 犀 sai, rhinoceros, and the aforementioned don.

It appears to draw much of its inspiration from a rhinoceros and some aspects of various dinosaurs, such as the triceratops.
