In the anime
Pookivil made his anime debut in Yo-kai Watch! series in episode 32.
- "Satandre" is a portmanteau of "Satan" and "tendre" (tender, loving)
- "Schnuckiwatz" consists of the word schnucki meaning darling.
- "Pufimaloso" is a combination of Pufi (the diminutive of "Puf" the onomatopoeia of something that falls, in this case in tenderness) and "Maloso" (bad).
- "Pookivil" is a portmanteau of the sweet talk word "Pooky", "Pooch" and "evil"
- Pookivil's skill and characteristics, coupled with its appearance, might be a subtle reference to the shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi, whose overly stringent animal protection laws caused Edo (ancient name of Tokyo) to be overrun with stray and disease-ridden dogs. This earned him the despise of his subjects, who would insultingly call him Inu-Kubou ("Dog Shogun").
