Physical Description[edit]

Mawile are short, bipedal Pokémon with a pale yellow body with black arms, feet and "hair". Their legs have a fur-like covering that resembles a kind of skirt. Their black arms end in three digits and their feet look like crescents. Their mouths curve a bit downward, making it look somewhat like a beak, and it's eyes are a bright red color. Their most prominent feature is their "hair", which is actually a pair of jaws that transformed from steel horns, has 10 teeth-like protrusions, and has a yellow oval marking on the top horn.

Some Mawile have been known to have bodies that are a lighter shade of yellow with their horn-jaws, stranger still, being a dark purple color instead of the usual black. Their eyes also have an orange color.


Mawile's were first discovered deep in the caves of the Hoenn island, though they can be found just about anywhere. Due to their dual mouths, most especially the one on the back of it's head, and feminine appearance, it is believed that Mawiles are related to Futakuchi-onna, humanoid women that likewise have a mouth in the back on their heads.


While Mawile live mostly secluded lives in deep cave systems, many have adapted to human society. These intelligent, cunning little creatures are known as expert deceivers, as they will use their cute and charming appearance to lull their prey into complacency before clamping their horn-jaws onto the unlucky creature and consume it whole. The horn-jaws are so strong they've been known to crush iron. They are not picky eaters, as any food they don't like the taste of is eaten by their horn-jaws as it has no taste buds. Although they are considered to be dangerous creatures, Mawile attacks on humans are practically unheard of, though this could be because of how rare and difficult they are to find in the wild and possibly because most humanoids are so much taller than them.

Mawile Names[edit]

Despite their cutesy, feminine appearance, Mawile are just as likely to be male as they are female. Males tend to have Undercommon names while females tend to have Sylvan names, though males with Sylvan names and females with Undercommon names are not unheard of.
