What would make a good mascot?

Tokyo Olympics is still three years away, but organizers have finally chosen Dragonball Z, Son Goku, as the official ambassador for the summer event. Applications for designing the mascot for the 2020 games is open to the public which I think is a great idea. So, what would make a good mascot? If I had to design a mascot, it would be a mix of something old and something new – Ninja Robot.

Something old- the ninja. They are popular and easily recognized because of their cool traditional outfits. The jobs of the ninja in the past were not always noble, but their level of skill and training are qualities that I have admired since I was a child. Growing up, I loved watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Something new- the robot. Japan’s robotics industry is well known throughout the globe and is another reason why I think it’d make a popular mascot. Robots are very much part of our everyday life. Most people can recognize Asimo the humanoid robot who has made public appearances around the world. And who could forget Astro Boy, the hero android. Very cool, indeed!

What if you had to hand in a mascot design for Tokyo Olympics? What would it be?
