Trivia

Origin

Sawk is based on Mas Oyama, a well-known Karate expert and the creator of Kyokushinkai Karate. He is also based on an Oni.

According to interviews with Ken Sugimori in Nintendo Dream, in development, Sawk and Throh both had horns, making them look more like Oni. However, they were replaced with eyebrows so as not to clash with Tornadus and Thundurus, who both were originally designed to be red and blue, like Throh and Sawk.

Name origin

Sawk is a corruption of to sock, meaning to punch.

Dageki may be derived from 打撃 dageki (blow, strike). It may also involve 鬼 ki (demon).
