中文名:福來哥
國際足聯和巴西世界杯組委會公布了2014巴西世界杯的吉祥物——一只犰狳。犰狳(讀音:qiú yú),又稱“鎧鼠”,是生活在巴西內陸地區的一種瀕危物種,在感受到外部威脅時,犰狳會縮成一圈,用甲殼保護自己,此時形態同足球相似。設計人員將犰狳的形象卡通化,從而抽象出巴西世界杯的吉祥物。這只犰狳頭部帶有藍色甲殼,背部和尾部亦為藍色,臉部和四肢為黃色,身穿帶有“巴西2014”字樣的白色T恤以及一條鸀色短褲,讓人聯想到巴西國旗的顏色搭配。

此次吉祥物名稱的候選方案有三,一是“Amijubi”,是“友誼”與“歡樂”的結合,象征東道國巴西人民的特質;其二是“Fuleco”,是“足球”同“生態”的結合,將環保理念注入足球運動;其三是“Zuzeco”,是“藍色”與“生態”的搭配,是天空和海洋顏色與環保理念的融合。
