Collection: Mappy

Attachment Being a family-friendly franchise, the Mappy series typically does not feature usage or possession of firearms from either Mappy or the Mewkies gang, despite the police and crime theme.

There are two exceptions to this, both being Mappy franchise projects released in the 21st century and aimed at an older audience. One is the merchandising for Mappy Park, a pachinko gambling game - Mappy Park itself is considered lost media so it is unknown whether guns actually appear in the game, however, a promotional cigarette lighter was made for the game shaped like a pistol. The other is the ShiftyLook Mappy: The Beat webtoon series where both Mappy and Goro use guns.

The name "Mappy" is likely derived from the early 20th century Japanese slang term "マッポ" (mappo), used in criminal circles to refer to a police officer.

Attachment The characters of Mappy and Goro/Nyamco predate the Mappy game by 2 and 3 years respectively, originally being designed as robots for Micromouse maze competitions. Unlike the similar situation with Pac-Man banks, these robots were made by Namco, making Mappy fully verifiable as both an official and intentional adaptation.
