K. C. Wolf is the official mascot of the National Football League's Kansas City Chiefs. He was first introduced in 1989 as a successor for Warpaint, a horse ridden by a man in full Indian chief headdress, and a failed attempt at a caricatured Native American mascot from the mid-1980s. K. C. Wolf was named after the team's "Wolfpack," a group of rabid fans who used to sit in temporary bleachers at Municipal Stadium.
In addition to football-related mascot duties, K. C. Wolf also appears at major and minor league baseball games, community activities, conventions, grand openings, parades, and numerous other events. In the inaugural class of 2006, he became the first NFL mascot inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame.
K. C. Wolf has been portrayed by Dan Meers since the mascot's inception, and he acts as a motivational speaker at special events.
On September 23, 2007 K. C. Wolf aided security guards in taking down a fan who had come on the field. He followed with a display of bodybuilding poses.
