Mandibuzz is a birdlike Pokémon that resembles a vulture or buzzard. Its head and neck are featherless and pink, with a gray beak, while its body is covered in dingy brown ruffled feathers. It has slightly squinted eyes with dark eye-shadow and red pupils, and it appears to be grinning mischievously, giving it a sinister look. It has a ponytail-like tuft of feathers atop its head, adorned with a small bone. It has a sandy brown ruff of feathers around its neck, and a skirt made of bones around its waist. Its legs and talons are pinkish with sharp black claws.
Mandibuzz is based on a vulture. As opposed to Braviary's influence being on the modern nation of America, with some influences from pre-historic America, Mandibuzz seems to be based off barbarians or a "cavewoman".
The "Buzz" part in the name stands for "Buzzard", and "Mandi" from "Mandible", the name of the (human) lower jawbone, which it appears to be wearing.
