Pepsiman, or Pepsi Man, is a superhero mascot for PepsiCo that had the power to deliver the beverage to those in need. He appeared in a total of 12 Pepsi commercials, as well as in his own comic series in Japan titled Pepsiman: Seigi no tame no tōsō. A Pepsiman animated series is planned for release in 2017 in Spain under the name Pepsiman.

OriginEdit

Pepsiman was created as a result of scientist Satoru Shujinko accepting the power of the Holy Pepsi into his heart. After awaking from his transformation, Satoru, now Pepsiman, returns to the Pepsi headquarters of Japan at which he works. On his way into the building, he hears a cry from a distressed citizen, made thirsty by the slowly expanding sun. He then saves the citizen, as well as the planet, and assumes his rightful place as Pepsiman.

BiographyEdit

Pepsiman's former identity, Satoru Shujinko, is not well explained in the initial manga, though supplementary materials released by Pepsi and licensed distributors have expanded his background. It is not known where or when Satoru was born, though it is known that his father was an American, and he was born on a Tuesday. Pepsiman himself, however, has a much more detailed history.

PersonalityEdit

Pepsiman is shown through the manga to be a very brooding hero, he often debates whether he has made the right choice in becoming the man he is. During his battle against the Eternal Moon, Pepsiman is forced to reflect on his enthusiasm to become, essentially, a corporate slave and walking advertisement. Pepsiman soon overcomes this conflict, however, when he remembers the joy people experience upon being supplied with soft drinks, and chooses to continue his life as Pepsiman.

PowersEdit

  • Super Speed: Pepsiman can run at incredible speeds. though he lacks in accuracy, often leading to serious accidents.
  • Time Stop : Pepsiman is shown to be able to briefly pause time, though only for a few milliseconds.
  • Sharingan: Pepsiman also has control of all known Sharingan techniques (which is a reference to the popular manga and anime Naruto).

Other mediaEdit

Pepsiman was also featured in his own video game simply called Pepsiman, where the premise is to dodge and avoid obstacles (most of which are Pepsi-branded) on route to giving someone a Pepsi.

Pepsiman was also an unlockable character for the fighting game Fighting Vipers.

Pepsiman also appeared as a background character in Street Fighter V's available story A Shadow Falls. Capcom has also expressed interest and enthusiasm at the concept of Pepsiman becoming a playable character in the future.
