Origin

Despite being named Krookodile, it is actually modeled after the Gavial, a species related to the crocodile. This is also reflected in its Japanese name, which is a combination of Waru, form the word warui, meaning bad, and Vial, from Gavial. It also somewhat resembles the dinosaur Baryonyx or Tyrannosaurus rex.

Etymology

Krookodile's English name is derived from a corruption of the word "crook" (a villainous person), and "crocodile".

Its Japanese name is a combination of Waru, form the word warui, meaning "bad", and "Vial", from Gavial.
