Edit: this is not my design, this is used by a cleaning company that drives around in my city. Yes! a cleaning company called cleaningbusters! Yeah no kidding! I absolutely hate it and every time I see one of their cars pass I feel like confronting them on this poor ripoff. I posted it it because I was curieus if they are actually infringing on copyright or that I am just overreacting!
Not sure what kind of parody or variation I’d do but I think you can tell when it’s just plain copying.

One is a truck company that uses an older piece of official artwork as there mascot. It’s big on the side if their trucks. Sega is apparently ok with it and the others. I mean they’re not exactly profiting off the character. Just using him for fun. I personally think it’s cool they allow it. It depends on the situation imo.
