Description: A grey, bull-like Pokémon, Terrakion is a Legendary Pokémon and one of the Swords of Justice. It has several, brown horns - large curved ones on either side of its face, and several shorter ones on top of its head. It has light brown markings on its face, underside, and around its ankles, as well bright orange ridges on its shoulders. A pair of dark brown ridges run down the length of its back stopping just before a short, stubby tail.

Terrakion is part of a Legendary quartet of Pokémon known as the Swords of Justice, based on The Three Musketeers. Terrakion represents Porthos, the strongest member of the group. The other three members of the group are Cobalion who represents Athos, the oldest and de facto leader of the group; Virizion who represents Aramis, the feminine and romantic member of the group; and Keldeo who represents d'Artagnan, the young new addition to the group. Having fought alongside the other Swords of Justice in a war against Humans, Terrakion demonstrated its strength by barreling through castle walls in a single blow.
