Together, Zacian and Zamazenta form the hero duo of the Galar region, and each is a Pokémon Sword and Shield mascot.

The story of the hero duo, the pair resting in the Slumbering Weald until Galar’s time of need, is clearly inspired by the story of how King Arthur might one day return to save the British Isles.

This Arthurian connection deepens when considering the possibility that Zacian may have been inspired by Excalibur, Arthur’s legendary sword.
