Character Branding

by Steve Napierski to Images

While I was searching on Google, I looked at their logo and then the word Moogle popped into my head. After that, I started thinking of what other characters could have company logos re-branded for them, pinged my buddy M.J. for an assist and here we are.

Had a lot of fun putting these together. Reminds me a lot of when I did the anagrams a while back. But I know I barely scratched the surface of possibilities. If you can think of any others, don’t hesitate to mention them in the comment section below.

    Nice to know I’m not the only one whose mind tends to jump from ‘Google’ to ‘moogle’.

    I figured out all but Belmont, Tonberry (reading the comments did that one) and Bowser Jr. on my own. Me mum helped me on the Bowser Jr. one, so that just leaves Belmont, which looks elusively familiar. So what’s that one? :)

      Bowser Jr. is Carls Jr… and Belmont is Dupont (also already answered in the comments.

        Yeah, Carls Jr. was why I asked my mom. We lived in California once, so she’d know what it was, but I was all of 3 and a half when we left, so I sure wasn’t going to know that logo.

      raytheon and rayman could be combined. Just type in rayman in the ratheon logo font.
      7-up and 1-up. replace the red dot with a green mushroom

      You could always use “iKoopa” for “iRobot” above the plain-lettered “Goomba” to make it more obvious.

      I agree. I would wear many of these on shirts. Especially E. Honda.

      The back of the shirt should have a screenshot of the car smashing challenge from SF2, just for laughs.

    Best Buy becomes Might Guy from Naruto.
    Chevron becomes Chevron, the symbols on the Stargate.

    Can’t think of any more at the moment.

    I’m sorry, but this comic has gotten extremely lazy writing wise. I mean, the last one was just a republish of a really old joke, and now a unch of slightly changed logos with no real joke of any sort? It would be one thing to show a little snippet of what their company would look like in comparison to it’s orginial, but this is nothing.

    For example: a Subway where all the options are ice. Perhaps food shaped ice, but ice nontheless. Or a sonic where, instead of rollerskates, they just roll out to you, and the horrific end results of such.

      “a Subway where all the options are ice. Perhaps food shaped ice, but ice nontheless. Or a sonic where, instead of rollerskates, they just roll out to you, and the horrific end results of such.”

      … yeah, that’s just retarded. This is much more amusing.

    These are brilliant. You would make a ton of money on the Shell, E. Honda, Sonic, and SubZero ones alone if they were shirts.

    These are great, I really like the Sub Zero and Sonic ones. I tried to think of some others; here they are….

    Dominos —> Marios
    Apple —-> Mario Level Up Mushrooms or Toad
    Coca-Cola —-> Counter Strike

    Goldman Sachs could be Golden Sacks with a picture of Wario.

    Hummer could be Dunmer from the Elderscrolls.

    D-Link wouldn’t even need to be changed. just the logo with navi saying Hey Listen!

      Ooh, one more. The Big Brother logo -> Big sister. Instead of a house, put a dome from rapture. Or Big Daddy. Whichever one.

    As a free consumer of this content, I don’t see why anyone would complain about what gets posted. The creator of the strip is free to draw and post whatever he thinks will amuse his readers or just amuses himself.

    I know people have suggested t-shirts with a single one of these on the front, and figured I’d drop in with a vote for a tee with the full set: I know I’d choose that over any individual one.

    As for other suggestions… Star Fox Coffee? The princess or whatever it is in the middle of the Starbucks logo could be replaced or redesigned into the Star Fox insignia.

      Star Fox Coffee – Genius! How has this been missed. Also: Star Fox News.

      FedEx -> DeusEx
      White Castle -> Another Castle

      There have to be more for just about any widely recognizable logo. I’m thinking there have to be ways to do this with General Electric, UPS, 4chan…

    On*Star – Gunstar
    Kellogg’s – Balrog’s
    Gorton’s – Gordon’s (Freeman)
    Hard Rock(Man) Cafe…?

    I would like it if the logo’s were on individual t-shirts. That way the logo can be as large as possible.
