Trivia

Origin

Tangela is probably based on Medusa, a gorgon of Greek mythology, who had a head of snakes and turned any creature that saw her into stone. The tentacles on Tangela, however, are vines. Its Crystal sprite shows it curling into a ball, meaning it may also have design elements from Tumbleweed or Bird-Cage plants.

Name origin

Tangela's name is probably a combination of the word tangle and Medusa because of its vines resembling a snake hairstyle like Medusa's. Its Japanese name may be based on もじゃもじゃ mojyamojya, which means shaggy, or unkempt.
