KFC is a major brand worldwide, but in Japan the Colonel has taken on almost mythical proportions. In his pure white suit and perpetual smile of southern hospitality, he's less a famous restaurateur and more symbol of happiness. KFC has been so successful over there that buckets of fried chicken have become a traditional meal associated with Christmas celebrations. Perhaps that's why Japanese fan-artists have fun with the symbology of fast food mascots, they're just being irreverent. It also might explain why he seems perpetually depicted in a life-or-death battle with Ronald McDonald at all times.
