Not so much a quarrel as a quibble. But does anyone else feel that the Bookmark/Site icon looks a little too much like Pikachu? Would it not be better to adopt a more apt icon?

That's an artist's rendering of Sackboy. I don't see the resemblance, to be honest. :/

You've just posted a picture of pikachu, taken away all of the features that make him recognisable, and he still doesn't look like the sackboy icon :p

I disagree, I can actually totally see the resemblance between them. Add ears to the icon and you'll hopefully see it as well. :)

Perhaps that is why you do not see the similarities, because all of Pickachu's 'recognizable features' have been removed?:p I do not find the artists rendition to look anymore like Sackboy than an ear-less Pickachu, which is partly why I find the icon so bemusing. Sackboy is incredibly iconic and this motif just seems to bear more resemblance to another character altogether.

Pichu may be a better example of the similarities, yet it may simply be me.

Sure when you take away EVERYTHING that makes pikachu what he is, he looks a little it like that sackboy icon.
But then he doesn't look like pikachu...

If i saw this without any context i'd have trouble recognising who he was xD

Either way, I'm not likely to get confused and suddenly think I'm posting on Pokémon central.
At least, not normally.

Oh, wait.. I think I'm on....oh. nope. Nevermind, it's okay.

like I was saying. not normally.

@ 49dra...I'm not sure...what site is this, any way?

Yes, that's what I meant. Sorry if it was worded in a confusing manner. :eek:
