I was playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf, trying to catch certian bugs & fish to make LOTS of money,
when I noticed the similarity between Mega Heracross & the Horned Hercules beetle.

Back when I first saw Mega Heracross, it design didn't make sense to me...
It is obivious that it was Heracross, but it was the VERY different horn that didn't make sense...
Now I get the feeling that the design was based off of the Horned Hercules, because Heracross
is known for it's herculean strength.
(for those who don't know, Horned Hercules are REAL bugs.)
As for the standrad Heracross, it (the males, anyways) look the most like the Horned Dynastid.
(another real bug, also on New Leaf)

& I've also noticed the similarity between the Horned Atlas (ANOTHER real bug, also on New Leaf)
& the legendary air ride machine, Hydra, from Kirby Air Ride.
Don't know if the machine's design was based off of the Horned Atlas or not, but it's still awesome!

Also, I think Pinsir's design is based off of the Cyclommatus Stag.
(again, a real bug & appears on New Leaf.)

What are your thoughts on all this?

Ok, this has been moved to the proper place...
Thanks whoever moved this!
Click the spoiler to see Mega Pangoro!

I wish...
