ABOUT 3 Team mascots

Super Sunbird Moonbird

◆ Super Sunbird
The Sunbird mascot was re-designed in 2011 to be a Super Sunbird, a leaner, meaner version with an expressive face.
Super Sunbird is calm and gentle, and loves shaking hands and interacting with people. But once the game starts, he’s the team’s most passionate supporter. In fact, he’s unstoppable!

◆ Moonbird
2019 saw the sudden appearance of Super Sunbird’s rival, Moonbird. At first glance, he looks like a carefree character—a practical joker and bad boy. But he’s actually very sociable and friendly.
His name shows that he’s a friendly rival to Super Sunbird. This odd couple truly needs each other.
