The official mascot and logo of the American fast food restaurant chain Wendy's is a red-haired, freckled young girl wearing a smile, pigtails, and white-blue striped dress. She is based on the real-life person Wendy Thomas, the daughter of the restaurant's founder Dave Thomas.
Although she is mostly known as a brand identity, the Wendy's mascot was nominated in Miss /co/ 2020 because of her appearances in the restaurant's animated commercials, making her technically allowed in the contest. She managed to qualify for the bracket as a 105th seed where she lost to Starfire. Because of her 2020 appearance, she will be allowed for future editions under the grandfather clause.
However, the mascot's popularity online may be attributed more to her Twitter account instead, which gained fame for its "savage" and witty responses, and spawned an online fan art craze wherein many artists drew Wendy as a sexualized smug anime girl. The character also indirectly influenced the nominations of other advertisement-based characters in later /co/ tournaments, such as Morton Salt Girl and Pepperidge Farm's Goldfish Crackers (Brooke and Coral).
