The Wendy's Twitter account has been a little busy ever since that kid gained millions of retweets in his quest for a year of free chicken nuggets. But just under the radar, another part of the internet has been having a very different kind of fun with the fast food chain. Taking inspiration from Wendy's famously brutal social media comebacks, fan artists are giving the restaurant's redheaded mascot a mischevious anime makeover. 

It all started when Twitter user Liz Finnegan spotted Wendy's starting some fresh beef with rival  Hardee's.

Like most Wendy's takedowns, this assault was entertaining enough to get written up all over the internet. It sort of makes you wonder what kind of person runs that account. The woman who was at the helm previously left the company in March, but the tweets have kept coming -- but from who? Artist professorSugoi has an idea.

It makes so much sense. Behind every snarky tweet, every third-degree burn is an anime girl with a shitty, self-satisfied grin. The concept resonated so much with Twitter and the online art community at large that lots of other Smug Anime Wendys started popping up all over. We've collected some of our favorites below.
