Cranidos is a short, bipedal, dinosaur-like [[Pokémon]]. It is very similar to the real life Pachycephalosaurus, having long hindlimbs and short forelimbs, and also having an extremely thick skull roof. The front of Cranidos' body is largely gray, while it's back and the top of its head are blue. From the sides to the back of its head are four large spikes. Cranidos' most notable feature though, is the large blue dome that is its head that it can use to smash down rocks or trees.

A Pachycephalosaurus.

Cranidos's appearance is very similar to the Pachycephalosaurus dinosaur, and is the basis of this Pokémon's looks and abilities.

Cranidos's name comes from the word cranium referring to its thick skull, while similarly its Japanese name Zugaidos comes from the word zugaikotsu, also meaning cranium.
