* KOOL-AID SMASH! KOOL-AID IS THE STRONGEST ONE THERE IS! ...well, yeah. The Kool-Aid Man probably qualifies as a superhero insofar as TheIncredibleHulk does -- what with his tendency to [[ThereWasADoor smash through walls]] to bring you that much-needed refreshment! '''[[http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/stupidcomics81.html OH, YEAH!]]''' The people over at [[http://www.applegeeks.com AppleGeeks]] seem to [[http://www.applegeeks.com/comics/viewcomic.php?issue=187 think he would be a good serial killer too.]]

* Pepsiman, star of a series of Japanese Pepsi commercials in the late 1990s (with effects by Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic). Pepsiman was a masked runner answering the call of thirsty consumers anywhere, magically delivering them Pepsi-Cola with "Schwaaa!" action (as the English blurb for his action figure puts it) and usually suffering AmusingInjuries on the side. Like UFO Kamen Yakisoban, he too got his own game, for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, also in Japan.

* Crest toothpaste had one in the 70's and early 80's, featuring heroes protecting Toothopolis, a city encircled by a wall of monstrous teeth, from the Cavity Creeps ("We make holes in teeth").



* In the early 80s, Crest toothpaste had a series of cartoon ads where a city called Toothopolis (a city surrounded by a wall of giant - but very shiny - teeth) was constantly under attack by ugly "Cavity Creeps", only to be fought off by the city's heroic protectors, armed with tooth-hygiene-themed weaponry. (Crest, naturally.)

* Showing that this is OlderThanTheyThink, Captain Tootsie was a guy who appeared as far back as 1943. A mascot for Tootsie Rolls, he was a [[LanternJawOfJustice square-jawed, muscular do-gooder]] (you know, [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} kind of like that other hero]] who [[FollowTheLeader was a hit at the time]]) who appeared in single-page adventures in titles published by Archie, Fawcett, and Sunday newspapers. He even had his own title which, sadly, only lasted two issues.

* Deconstructed (like everything else) in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' with Dollar Bill, a superhero created by a nationwide bank for PR purposes and to ride the superhero fad, the idea being that people would feel safer at a bank with its own superhero. This all collapsed one day, however, when Dollar Bill failed to stop a robbery at a bank he was guarding and met his end when one of the robbers [[BoomHeadshot shot him in the head]]. Though very little is shown what happened after that, no other company-created superheroes existed in the ''Watchmen'' world after that, suggesting the incident hurt the bank so much for other companies to avoid the concept.

Expect to see the product in question flying around with a cape billowing behind it, and [[SuperheroesWearTights a classic tights and underwear]] on the outside combo. In the case of dental hygiene products, you will likely see microscopic toothpaste superheroes fighting gingivitis inside a person's mouth. [[FridgeHorror Of course, the question arises as to what happens to this miniature people]] when you spit the toothpaste out.

* In one stage of the game ''OsuTatakaeOuendan'', a violinist with indigestion takes a health drink, and its effect is represented by little superheroes doing battle with the germs attacking his stomach lining. The western remake, ''EliteBeatAgents'', used a troop of sexy nurses as a more general personification of an athlete's immune system.
