For Honor lets players express themselves before they even reach the battlefield with a detailed emblem creator. I was too lazy to assemble all those primitive shapes into something that looked cool before heading out into battle, but other players are already creating works of art. Here's the kind of cool stuff you can create when you don't just mash the "Randomize" button a few times and stop on one that looks not-terrible. Unlike, er, me.

So many video game references
There's Skyrim, of course
Genji would approve of this Overwatch design
Scyther DLC confirmed?
And, er, the logo for the Battlefield developers?

To be fair, that last guy actually works for DICE.
And so much Dark Souls in particular
PRAISE THE SUN!
Not to mention some broader pop culture references
Deadpool fights For Chimichangas instead, but close enough.
Red Bull gives you REVENGE.
The Joker is always dressed for the occasion.
And some emblems that just look cool
Whatever this is, it's hardcore.
Raiding ain't easy.
I'm a sucker for 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa', alright?
There's the inner turmoil of Evil Kermit
Me: Don't include the dick emblem in this roundup
Me to me: put the bong one in too
There's dicks and bongs because it's the internet
The laurel wreath really sells it.
A bong? Hardly! This water pipe crest has represented my family for generations!
And that's all just in the first two days of the game being officially out. I can only imagine the level of artistry and phallic symbolism we'll see once people unlock all the different emblem shapes.
