While I do find the history behind the Chinese term Yao Guai interesting, isn't it also possible that the term was chosen since it's spelling/pronunciation is similar to Yogi-as in Yogi Bear? XD —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
- No, and it's pronunciation bears no relation to "Yogi". And sign your posts. --Kris 11:37, July 25, 2011 (UTC)

- Well, to be fair, the pronunciation really isn't very similar to "Yogi" at all. --IsaacSin 00:51, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
Pronunciation and original meaning aside, i think that it bears (excuse the pun =P) too much of a resemblance to the name Yogi to be completely accidental. I'd have to agree with OP on that.. as i've always thought it was a partial reference to the classic cartoon bear... hey, try talkin to one and see if he mentions anything about pic-i-nic baskets xP --LolThisIsATerribleUsername (talk) 04:19, July 15, 2012 (UTC)
