Question

Found on the northern snow and on the southern plain

Even though many have bested this game

Millions still revel in its name

A caricaturist makes it say the same

Just thought this one up, hope you all like it

itachi- san please reply!!!

Well, sorry to disappoint, but the answer has still not been given. It might help to try and match your answer with every line of the riddle. It should fit for every line, or else it wouldn't be much of a riddle ;)

Polar bears cannot be found in south pole...penguins cannot be found in north pole....what can it be???

Be careful not to jump to conclusions here. Nothing is said about poles. And also, caricatures do not have to be only black and white (which is mentioned in multiple posts).

At first I was thinking about games. Then Itachi-san said it was geared toward the living, so I started thinking animals. But, now I'm starting to wonder if it might be politics?

Maybe an elephant or a donkey?

Found on the northern snow and on the southern plain - Horses are found in both places

Even though many have bested this game - Horse is a game played with a basketball

Millions still revel in its name - People get a "horse" throat?

A caricaturist makes it say the same - The type of caricature that the shape of the horse is made by using the letters (can't remember the name of it)

To have 'bested' or 'beaten' the game of H-O-R-S-E is a bit awkward to say. You can beat someone else, but can you beat the game itself? It's like saying you bested chess, but you really bested your opponent.

Also, the word revel is a positive word, meaning to take great pleasure or delight in, or to celebrate. From my experience, a "horse" throat is nothing in which to revel.

Why didn't we see this before? It's deer (or dear, for part 3).

Sorry, no. I like you're answer, but it doesn't make sense with the fourth line. Also, for the third line you are using a completely different word (though they sound the same). The answer does not involve any grammatical tricks, it is just 1 word.

Turkey

I was just thinking that, but I cna't see why a caricaturist would draw it saying it's own name?

Well you're half right about being wrong. ;) It's not turkey, but nothing is ever said about a caricaturist making it say 'its own name'. That's a jump from the OP.

It looks like everything that could possibly be it has been named, except the answer of course ;) I never expected this one to last more than a day, actually. Here's what I had in mind:

tiger

Found on the northern snow and on the southern plain

Tigers span all over Asia, from the Siberian snow down to the Indian plains

Even though many have bested this game

They are still around despite near extinction from hunting. All tiger species are considered endangered.

Millions still revel in its name

One of the most important animals in many Asian cultures, highly symbolic, 1 of the zodiac signs, etc...

A caricaturist makes it say the same

to take great pleasure and delight - to revel. Who eats Frosted Flakes? Not me, but Tony sure does. And what does he say?

Couple of mistakes though; Tiger isn't in the Zodiak, lion is, but I do agree that tigers are one of the most revered animals in Asian culture. And I think cartoonist would have been a more fair discription of the person who creates Tony, as he isn't meant to exagerate a tigers appearance. Also, line 4 says 'A caricaturist makes it say the same', I guess the same meaning line 3's 'revel in its name', but Tony isn't talking about himself or tigers when he said they're great, he is talking about the cereal. Anyway, I still think if you let me get away with the deer/dear play on words a cartoon of a deer saying 'yes, dear' would have fit quite nicely! LOL

:P

Tigers are in the Chinese Zodiac.
