Arrow Musharna's appearance

Not trying to sound like an EarthBound theorist, but am I the only one who thinks Musharna looks like a fetus? I mean, it's got the umbillical cord, the shape and everything.

Haha sorry I ruined that for you. The pink thingy is kind of like one even though it's attatched weird, it could be overlapping between the "legs." I was wondering, is a fetus what Musharna is supposed to be?

Musharna is based on the same dream-eating tapir that Drowzee is based on, but it could have had multiple inspirations. I always thought the way it hangs there in the air was creepy, unsure if it's because it's based on a fetus or because that's just how they chose to animate "floating."

Just looked at Bulbapedia on Musharna.


Quote:
Origin
Musharna appears to be based on traditional Japanese incense burners called koro. These are used in traditional tea ceremonies, but many styles of koro have been developed to be used with insect repellent incense. These insect repellent koro are popularly shaped like a pig. Musharna, like Drowzee, also seems to share some inspiration from the myth of the Baku, tapir-like creatures that eat dreams. Its curled up, sleeping appearance is similar to that of a fetus.

to each thier own, I always kinda had a different perspective on Musharna..

more like the Catapiller from Alice in Wonderland in that I see it smoking so it attains an ethereal (dreamlike) state of mind.

Since its eyes, which have discernible eyelashes, have been seen closed and its body in a curled position, it conveys the impression that it can be commonly seen asleep.
Apparently, it's dream mist. Not a cord. I can agree though, at first glance it looked a bit absurd.

I can see where you are coming from, but to me, it always looked like an anteater or aardvark.
