Advertising characters and corporate mascots[edit]

Are advertising characters always mascots? Currently the article advertising character refers to itself (to this mascot article) but couldn't it be there are advertising characters that a business doesn't use as a mascot? Currently there are two separate (partly overlapping) categories as well, one for corporate mascots and one for advertising characters. What to decide? Merge the categories or broaden the definition of an advertising character ans create a separate article? I'd propose the latter and allow advertising character articles to be categorized as both corporate mascot and advertising character or just as advertising character.

Video Game Mascots[edit]

What happened to the list for video game mascots? Whose bright idea was to get rid of it? The King Gemini (talk) 22:54, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

The editor Trivialist removed the video game mascots list on June. The list needs reliable sources in order to remain. TheGGoose (talk) 16:55, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Also, it would be better suited for one of the pages listed on Lists of advertising characters. Trivialist (talk) 17:01, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
