Toxiraptor is an ancient Pokémon similar, yet unidentical to real life raptors. Most of its skin is purple, with a tan underside and lighter purple stripes, one of which forming a sort of "mask" for Toxiraptor, akin to a raccoon. Its feathers on its head, back, and arms are the same color as whatever piece of skin its on, possessing lighter tips if they are on the purple side. It has a sharp blade at the end of its tail, which it uses alongside its feathers to perform a Toxiravage.
Toxiraptor lived only in desolate wastelands, as its highly toxic nature would cause entire ecosystems to fall apart. It is aggressive, remorseless, and feral to the point where its body produces bile to ward off every organism in its radius. However, if it were to hunt, its terrifying speed and poison would make for an inevitable death to its prey.
It seems to be visually inspired by maniraptoran theropod dinosaurs, particularly members of dromaeosauridae ("raptors"), sporting what appear to be feathers on its wrists, head and lower back. Despite its namesake, it lacks the signature curved sickle-claw.
Its tail is inspired by that of Vertigo's, who is a playable character in the arcade fighter Primal Rage. They both possess a striped tail with a spike protruding from it. They are both venomous creatures, with Vertigo being able to spit poison, bite venom into prey, and having the physical traits of a cobra, as Toxiraptor is literally just a toxic raptor.
