Tigzon was originally created by Gamerdeath722 (also known as Mangamixer). According to himself, the series was considered as a spiritual successor to his old platformer game, Flash Adventure, which also features an orange wolf character.
In Gamerdeath722's A Hoverboard Game, Am orange wolf character, who is playable only in the first level, is an early design for Tigzon.
Many Tigzon characters were based on Gamecommentaries' Sonic/the Apocalypse series, however the design of the human characters were the same as the Sonic characters from Some Gamecommentaries' games.
The name of the species, The Puffies, were inspired by the Puffles from an online game, Club Penguin. One of their design, were a bit similar to the Chaffies from Jamie Smart's children book, Find Chaffy.
