Quatchi and Sumi - 2010 Winter Games
After a tame outing 1988 featuring boring old polar bear as the mascot, the Canadian committee wasn't about to be outdone when it came to barely concealed nightmare fuel. Calling upon the extensive(?) history of Canadian mythology, they churned out the most adorable representations of monsters meant to kill you in your sleep. On our left we have Miga who is literally half-bear, half-killer whale and if that combination doesn't scare you, you have no self-preservation instinct. On our right is the cuddliest Sasquatch ever — he'd look adorable while ripping your arms off Wookiee style. Sleep well, Canada.
