Origin

Cobalion is likely based on a stag. Cobalion along with Keldeo, Terrakion and Virizion seem to be inspired by the Three Musketeers. Cobalion likely represents the character Athos from the novel The Three Musketeers, being the eldest and the leader of the group.

Etymology

Cobalion might be a combination of the words "cobalt" (a type of metal, alluding to Cobalion's Steel-typing), "champion", and possibly "lion".
