I think that the 'X' in xbmc is sideways.

I think the xbmc team needs a mascot that represents them and their work ethic. I mean when I think about the team / projects / skins / plugins / continual development I think of community, collaboration, amazing feats, support etc. So based on that logic I decided to mock up a quick ant. This is my first go and if people like the idea I would be happy to explore it further (bees would work well too).
No ideas for a name, but I think this little guy would make some cool single panel cartoons (eating a giant piece of popcorn in a tiny lazy boy, etc...)
Lazy logo I know, but the concept would be lots of ants relaxing on the logo.

How about an "X Bee" as the mascot, meaning a bee that is either shaped like or on him has an "X"
So the mascot would be called the "X Bee"
and XBMC would be like "X Bee" Media Center
I know everyone's spoiled with awesome looking pictures and my text-only idea won't seem like anything cool. But I hope someone who is good at design can at least create this image. (I will transfer all rights to this idea to whoever wants to pick up and run with it )

Initial sketch of bee concept. Bee concept is already in use with honeycomb... still fun to sketch

Still not too keen about representing a program with bugs/insects....

That was also my first thought when I saw the first insect sketches a few pages back

I tried to base the mascot on the XBMC logo. I'm not very good with expressions but here is my mascot entry:

Give him a pair of raybans and a mic, and he'll be the first "X Bee MC". Apologies for the cheap pun...

Ok, here's my suggestion; An angry lemming.
Quick photoshop colouring there.
And here's the mascot with the XBMC logo.
