When one talks about Pikachu, usually the image people get is of that cute little yellow mouse with red dots for cheeks and a tail shaped like a lightning bolt. Well, get ready to have all those images shattered thanks to a Pikachu cosplay picture that's got the internet going crazy!

During the recent FanimeCon held in San Jose last weekend, a fan and her friend met a Pikachu cosplayer and decided to take photo. Now this is all good and well - right up to the point where a hand popped out of the Pikachu's mouth and patted the fan on the head.

Needless to say, the final result is a photo that is equal parts baffling and hilarious. Upon sharing it onto Twitter, this little photo soon went viral and netizens went bonkers making their own funny "Pikachu hand-tongue" pictures using photoshop.

Here are some of the brilliant photoshop results of some creative Pikachu fans:

If you ever see this Pikachu out in the wild, make sure you don't get "licked!"
