Lucario (Pokémon)

Lucario appears to be based on the Egyptian god {{wp|Anubis}}, who has the head of a {{wp|jackal}}. It also seems to be based on an Egyptian boxer. {{wp|Boxing}} is a sport that is believed to have origins in Egypt. The black appendages on the back of its head are used to detect the Auras of creatures and objects around it. While Lucario reads Aura, it closes its eyes, and thus the appendages and the way they look "tied" around its face appear to be based on someone being blindfolded.
====Name origin====
Lucario's name possibly derives from part of a Japanese spelling of {{wp|orichalcum}} in reverse, reflecting its mythical design and Steel-type. It may also refer to {{wp|Cairo, Egypt}}.
