Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a side-scrolling "anime-inspired beat-‘em-up" that will be releasing on September 4th. While this is not a fighting game, it does contain a reference to one of the fighting game community's most recognizable faces.

Before beginning gameplay, players are able to choose between a select number of masks to put on as they defeat enemies. One of the masks is called the "Champion's Fursuit."

This gives the playable character the appearance of a blue fox. Indeed, this is a direct reference to FOX|SonicFox — a top performing competitor in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Injustice 2, Mortal Kombat X, Skullgirls, and more.

SonicFox is known for wearing an outfit that depicts him as an anthropomorphic blue fox. From time to time, he'll even participate in tournament matches against certain opponents while in costume.

The mask's description even seems to directly reference some of SonicFox's accomplishments. He's obviously a champion as he has won many major tournaments — including the Dragon Ball FighterZ event at EVO 2018 — across multiple game franchises.

There even appears to be a reference to a... legendary exhibition he had with a certain other player back when Mortal Kombat X was NetherRealm Studios' latest game.
