    Trivia[]

    Origin[]

    Mabosstiff seems to be based on the mastiff breeds of dog. Its friendly behavior around children and signature Ability invoke the general image of livestock guardian dogs, a type of dog known for their big size, friendliness towards children and bred to protect livestock from predators.

    Its Dark type, and protective nature towards its family, may be derived from the archetypal looks and behaviors of leaders in organized crime families, such as the Italian mafia and the Japanese yakuza.

    It also slightly resembles an old person/dog because of the grey eyebrows and fur on its head and back of the grey eyebrows and fur on its head and back and mustache.
