In a Houndoom pack, the one with its horns raked sharply towards the back serves a leadership role. These Pokémon choose their leader by fighting among themselves.

The pungent-smelling flame that shoots from its mouth results from toxins burning in its body. If you are burned by the flames it shoots from its mouth, the pain will never go away.

Upon hearing its eerie howls, other Pokémon get the shivers and head straight back to their nests. Long ago, people imagined its eerie howls to be the call of the grim reaper.
