For the idea for the name, I have my friend the lovely Joe Stofko, longtime actor and voice actor, to thank.
He happened to mention Egyptian Walking Onions to me. These brilliant plants are little clumps of onions which sprout long stems. At the top of those stems they grow more little onion bulbs which grow and grow... until they arch right over onto the ground nearby. They then work themselves into the soil, start growing a stem, and the process repeats. So these onions can move across the earth, sprouting and falling their way into fertile patches.
If a plant can be that versatile and adaptive, then what can we achieve?
Walking Onions sounded a bit slow and... pedestrian (boom boom!)
A quick look in the thesaurus and Dashing stood out as the perfect adjective in absolutely every sense. It felt very 1920s, so I went with a colour palette to match, and Dashing Onions was born. Please keep a look out for future productions under this logo!
