Hoozoto belonged to an Aztec king whose crown he was left to guard for five hundred years.
Hoozoto is now used on the side of good.
Hoozoto is a relentless guardian whose strength grows if he's guarding an object. He has a dangerous bite and can use its tail-claw to punch its enemies.
Imagine a monkey. Now imagine a monkey with a dog’s head. Now imagine a monkey with a dog’s head and a big clawed hand at the end of its tail. Now adorn it with Aztec jewelry. That’s Hoozoto! This sketch captures everything we thought Hoozoto should look like—monkey body, dog head, claw-tail. Our only request to the artist was to give this Titan oversized monkey-hands, which would help him look more monkey-like instead of like a dog with a funny tail.
Those hands and feet are definitely monkey hands and feet—no dog paws here. And the tail-claw is huge! Bigger than his head! He could probably pick up a basketball with one hand. Check out those bared teeth—he must be in a bad mood! We had nothing we wanted to change at this point, so the next step was to go to a color version.
He sure looks scrappy! He’d probably enjoy jumping out of a tree onto a Suit’s back and punching the Suit in the head with that big tail-hand! Or maybe he’d be good at guarding something for the Huntik Foundation! Because his special power makes him stronger when he’s carrying an object (+2 ATK and +2 DEF), he’s a great guard dog, uh monkey, uh dog-monkey.
- Hoozoto is based on an Aztec monster called Ahuizotl. Its name means “water monster” in the Aztec language. One of the Aztec kings took the name Ahuizotl when he become king because he liked its fierce nature.
