Chan and Moé anthropomorphism

Non-standard variations of chan include chin (ちん, chin?) and tan (たん, tan?). Chin and tan are mispronunciations typical of small children and therefore remind of baby or child talk, hence their association with cuteness. They, but particularly tan, are thus popular in the names of moé anthropomorphisms, artistic memes on Japanese imageboards typified by a female character, usually depicted in cosplay, representing a non-human being, inanimate object, concept, or phenomena, or a popular consumer product. Well-known examples include OS-tan (representing computer operating systems) and Bisuke-tan (representing KFC biscuits). Some of these characters, such as Binchō-tan, are real corporate mascots.
