Maken may likely be based on Hellhounds, supernatural dogs in many folklore. There are a wide variety of supernatural dogs, many of which are ominous or hellish, that occur in mythologies around the world. Several features have been attributed to these dogs, such as having mangled dark fur, glowing eyes, super strength and speed, ghostly characteristics, and a foul odor. Some examples of hellhounds include the Barghest and Black Shuck of England, as well as Cerberus of Greek Mythology.
