Marowak is a bipedal Pokémon with a spike located on its tail. On its stomach, Marowak is very light brown in color, as opposed to most its body, which is a darker brown. Two small claws, one on each hand, serve as its thumbs, and two large nails make up its toes. Marowak’s head is composed of the skull it once wore as a mask. It can no longer remove the skull, as it is now a direct body part. Marowak’s jaw is composed of bone, and its nostrils are located on the nose of the skull. Its triangular eyes are brown and are also located on the skull. Marowak is well known for ferocity with its bone club, which it is said to collect from a hidden graveyard. It and its pre-evolution, Cubone, are the only known Pokémon that can learn Bone Club and Bonemerang.
Upon evolution, Marowak has overcome the grief of its mother's passing. Now ferocious and violent, Marowak is an adept combatant, and uses the bone it carries as a weapon and a boomerang. Marowak have also been recorded pounding on boulders with the bone club it carries in order to tap out messages to others. It lives in mountains to test its skills.
- In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Marowak was originally known as "Guardia". This is the Spanish word for guardian.
- According to some of Marowak's Generation II and IV Pokédex entries, somewhere exists a legendary Marowak graveyard. This is a reference to the Elephant's graveyard of modern myth.
- Until the release of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and the appearance of Black and White Kyurem, Marowak was the only Pokémon in the main games to be found in a location where it was not able to be caught at all.
- In Generation I Marowak's back sprite depicts it with what seems to be an exposed spine. This is not seen in any other depictions of Marowak.
Marowak is reptilian in nature and may be based on bipedal dinosaurs.
Marowak is a combination of marrow and whack.
Garagara may be taken to mean がらがら (clattering). It is worth noting that garagara denotes heavier clattering than からから karakara.
