In Incarnate Forme, Landorus may be based on Inari Ōkami, the kami of fertility. It may also have drawn some inspiration from genies.
In Therian Forme, Landorus seems to be based on a predatory mammal, most likely a tiger or other large feline. It may also draw inspiration from the White Tiger of the Chinese Four Symbols constellation, or from Tezcatlipoca or Tepēyōllōtl, gods from the Aztec mythology that resemble a jaguar.

In Incarnate Forme, Tornadus is based on Fūjin, the kami of wind.1 It may also have drawn some inspiration from genies.
In Therian Forme, Tornadus seems to be based on a bird of prey, most likely an eagle, vulture, or other large avian species. It may also draw inspiration from the Vermilion Bird of the Chinese Four Symbols constellation; or from Huītzilōpōchtli, a god from the Aztec mythology that resembles a hummingbird.

In Incarnate Forme, Thundurus is based on Raijin, the kami of thunder and lightning.1 It may also have drawn some inspiration from genies.
In Therian Forme, Thundurus seems to be based on a reptile, most likely a snake or dragon. It may also draw inspiration from the Azure Dragon and/or Black Tortoise of the Chinese Four Symbols constellation; or from Quetzalcoatl, a god from the Aztec mythology that resembles a feathered serpent. It also may be based on the Qiling, a mythical creature from east Asia described to have a horn on its forehead and occasionally associated with lightning.
