** In Japan, Sega actually had a second mascot specifically for the Saturn: Advertising/SegataSanshiro, a BadAss martial artist who would beat up people for not playing the Saturn. He eventually got his own video game, which was the last first-party game released for the Saturn.

Then in 2011, the company created a second bunny character named Schnffelienchen (Snuggelina) who is Snuggle's girlfriend and even had songs of her own. That same year the company started releasing Audio CD's currently only available in Germany that stars the duo on various adventures and are actually voiced by different voice actors and aren't high pitched like they usually are.

* A rare game show example is from ''Series/CatchPhrase'', where a small, cylindrical robot named either Herbie (for the short-lived US version) or Mr. Chips in the UK; he often appears on the screen as part of the "catch phrases" the contestants must decipher.
