Verdao

Verdy's mascot has remained unchanged through the team's move from Kawasaki to Tokyo, its transition to new ownership, and even a stylistic makeover of the other logo marks. Originally, the choice of a vulture might have seemed like a clever (if a bit morbid) choice, signifying that the team picks off opponents as easy prey. But after Verdy's slump into division 2, some cynically witty fans began to ask if the Verdy vulture signifies that the team was starting to resemble a lifeless corpse. Now that the team has begun a new life under the management of former players, Verdao seems a bit less morbid. But the fact that he still has not attracted a mate (or even any sidekicks) is somewhat fitting, given the team's sad history.
