Biology

Physiology

Samurott is a quadruped, blue sea lion-like Pokémon. Long, white whiskers extend from its snout and head, and on the back of its head is a large, rounded beige helmet-like shell with spikes and a spear-like, pointed protrusion in the front. Its underbelly is covered by a dull bluish gray seashell-like carapace, and its limbs are covered with beige, sectioned bracer-like coverings, looking as if comprised of seashells with the forelimbs’ bracers being the swords that it uses in battle. The lower two segments of these bracers are the scabbards for the two swords. The upper segment and spike make up the sword and its handle, respectively. Samurott possess three navy digits on each limb, and a fin-like, splayed tail with the innermost section being beige like the seashell-like portions of its body.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Part of the armor on its forefeet is a sword; one swing of it can beat opponents. It can silence foes with its glare alone and can dominate foes simply by howling. When in battle, Samurott can stand on its hind legs and use one of its blades as a sword to fight.

Behavior

It glares and howls at opponents to silence and dominate them.

Habitat

As Samurott is amphibious, it lives by the water.

Trivia

Origin

Samurott is based on a sea lion with characteristics of a samurai or shogun.[1] Samurott's tail may be based on a Japanese war fan. The "helmet" over its head is based on the Murex altispira shell.

Name origin

Samurott's name comes from samurai and otter or water. Daikenki seems to come from 大 dai, meaning large, and 剣 ken, meaning sword. Similarly 大剣 taiken also means large or long sword. The latter half of the name, kenki, may also come from 剣鬼 – a word used to refer to a very skilled swordsman, literally meaning sword-wielding demon. The 大 dai in Daikenki may imply a lineage within its final evolutionary line, with Samurott being the eldest of the brothers.

In other languages

Language Name Name Origin
German Admurai From Admiral and Samurai.
French Clamiral From clam and admiral.
Korean 대검귀 Daegeomgwi From its Japanese name.
Chinese (Mandarin) 大劍鬼 / 大剑鬼 Dàjiànguǐ From its Japanese name.
