Introduction

Well, Cuphead and his pal Mugman were the stars of their semi-self titled 2017 indie video game hit Cuphead, which could best be described as an interactive homage to the old school Fleischer and Walt Disney cartoons of the 1930s. Cuphead has gone on to garner unanimous praise by critics and consumers alike, with pundits lauding the game's stunning hand drawn animation, impeccable Jazz inspired soundtrack, and tough-but-fair gameplay. Though the game is more than a year old by the time of this writing, its impact on gaming media can very much still be seen - with many gamers comparing big budget games created by multi-billion dollar companies to this passion project that was created by two brothers and their small, but fiercely loyal, team of family and friends.

Cuphead Dog Name Considerations

Funnily enough, most of the characters in Cuphead are named after inanimate objects - Cuphead, Mugman, and Elder Kettle are all named after the objects that they physically resemble while characters like Dr. Kahl and Grim Matchstick possess names that are homages to legends of the animation industry. If you've played Cuphead, or have even just watched others play it online or in person, and have found yourself enamored with the 1930s "Golden Age of Animation," you could name your dog after a Cuphead character to pay homage to titans of the cartoon industry. Heck, you could name your dog after a Cuphead character to pay homage to Studio MDHR - the team that spent more than five years working their butts off to bring this ambitious passion project to life!

Many of the characters in the Cuphead universe also very quirky and alliterative names, a la the classic cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, or Porky Pig. You could very well give your dog an alliterative title to keep that trend alive; if you've got a Labrador Retriever in your care, you could name them Luck Lab (Lazy Lab if they're a big old couch potato.) Dire Doberman, Husky Husky, Super Shepherd - the possibilities are endless!
