Etymology

  • His Japanese name, "Musha Kabuto", translates as "warrior's helmet", but also refers to kabutomushi.
  • His English name, "Rhinoggin" is a portmanteau of rhino (as in rhinoceros beetle) and noggin.

Origin

Rhinoggin's appearance plays on the words kabuto (Japanese: ) (iron samurai helmet) and kabutomushi (Japanese: カブトムシ) (Japanese rhinoceros beetle, Allomyrina dichotoma). This beetle species is especially famous for its extraordinary physical strength: its muscle-packed body allows it to fly despite its relatively large size, and it can lift up to hundreds of times its own weight. Its characteristic horn is its main weapon, and is used in both territorial fights and to upturn bark and branches to look for food. All this coupled with its impressive appearance makes it a popular favourite among bug catchers, and holds a special place in the heart of Japanese children. In the past they were also often employed in insect fighting, a practice which contributed to Satoshi Tajiri's inspiration to create Pokémon.
