Name Origin

Incineroar should be pretty obviously a portmanteau of incinerate and roar. ガオガエン, or Gaogaen, is probably from gao (to roar) and a corruption of kaen which means flame. --TheMaskedMeowth (talk) 15:04, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Tiger Mask Origin

It may be inspired by the Tiger Mask manga and anime series. The main character was also (originally) a heel, is admired by a child and is heroic at heart. --Pdpd999 (talk) 16:27, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Interesting, but that could be a coincidence. I mean, people could think of El Tigre for all we know. Not trying to be rude, I'm just saying that, while an interesting theory, unless there is official word on something like that, it is safer to just avoid pop culture characters references in the origin section or even in general, even though I think there are a few Pokés that still need cleaning up on that bit. Probably best to focus on any information that we can confirm, if you ask me. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 17:06, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
I'd make since because many pokemon are based on popular characters in Japan. For example, Nidoking and Baragon, Tyranitar and Godzilla, Infernape and Son Goku, etc.Robbie (talk) 16:50, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Copyrighted characters are typically not considered for origins. Main reasons being that they are strongly opinion based and that they often have a deeper, older basis (eg two separate characters based on one core thing, rather one character based on another). It's highly preferred not to include copyrighted characters unless its 100% confirmed by official word or there is no other basis whatsoever. Crystal Talian 17:54, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Tiger The Dark

(not sure if i should be adding this the Tiger mask) while Tiger Mask could be possible look at this: Not only color scheme, but also the Dark type. - unsigned comment from SeeYaLater (talkcontribs)

Copyrighted characters can't be used as possible origins, unless it is specifically said to be based off a character.--ForceFire 03:58, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
