Hello,

Your monster "Lupin" completely copies the design of the Seiken Densetsu series Rabite. The sprite design in the video looks very similar to Rabites from the game Legend of Mana as well.

The Rabite is the mascot of the Seiken Densetsu series, so I think using this Lupin monster as a mascot for your game is a bad idea since it is such an obvious imitation.

In order to get your game to stand out you should change this.

From a uniqueness perspective I agree a furry rabbit ball is not out there.
From a copyright perspective, I don't really see a danger here, these kind of creatures have been created many times in games, series and anime.
It is a different graphic, style and creature (although I do see the similarities) I doubt we will be seeing any claims on that area, the creature was drawn from scratch, fact that it has similarities is purely a coincidence (which is unavoidable with such a simple creature), none of the listed games held any form of inspiration or example for this project.

But I appreciate you pointing it out.
On that note, any suggestions on what you feel (for example) would be a good mascotte.
