because there's no other way gameplay-wise I can think of to implement body types without way too much extra coding work, I think having fat lions would be a cute mutation to breed for. Perhaps a less-rare mutation, or still rare but passable, as obesity is a genetic predisposition.

chunky lions wouldn't feel like hunting, and, if it wouldn't be too much of a pain in the ass to implement, lose hunger double as fast as vanilla lions.

Perhaps in lionesses it looks a little bit like the pregnant pose, or just use the pregnant pose outright if Xylax doesn't feel like drawing a new one lmao. For males, it'd be neat to have an actual sitting pose. Adding some heft to the current models would be okay too, but not ideal as Xylax's new stuff is much, much better.

a little exaggerated cause my drawings bad atm, but you get the idea for males :)

let me know what you guys think or what you would do with a hefty lion! I would make a Danny DeLeo.



This suggestion has 187 supports and 97 NO supports.

I'm aware that it's not a mutation, but a "mutation" is the only way to implement such an idea without coding an entire new game mechanic, that wouldn't be a viable idea. A lion with overgrown claws isn't really a mutation either if you think about it, it's just a kitty that hasn't groomed the layers of keratin off their claws.

Holy crap yES we need fat lions! Maybe a mutation like tailless or folded ears that's more common

I support this because it would be great to have lions who represent what I look like

I don;t support because the lion would probably die faster than most and have more complications than a vanilla lion. Just my opinion on why i'm not supporting sorry,

Yes please because I would love for it to be able to have cub mode and just be a chubby little cub!! Pluse there is a “mutation” in humans and in rats that takes away the response that tells us we are full and can stop eating!

If you don’t like Harvard there has been other studies made by different places. It was in my freshman biology book if that helps.

(I don't know how/if we ping people in forums so i'm just gonna reply in one post H)

@spinzette same, another reason i want those chonky lions.

@dicloniuspony, we have mutations that Literally make Cubs Die when they are Babies. They could just have a shortened lifespan like other kind-of lethal mutations. You do you tho my friend.

@relic YESSS. I would absolutely just have a very chunky cub. I would literally save all my lion balls just to breed fat lions t b h.

No support for now, I need more convincing.
A lion that doesn't want to move would die without proper care, and lions can't take care of other lions like how humans do, which could make this mutation lethal just like how Deaf is lethal.
If the mutation is listed as lethal, then I could support this. It could pass away many ways, like overeating, bad blood circulation, or even getting killed by a poacher.

And Overgrown Claws are indeed a real mutation, just not the way it's portrayed in Lioden (and the name isn't really correct either).
Onychauxis is pretty close to "overgrown claws". Overgrown Claws in Lioden is more of a genetic thing, as two of my cats have claws that are too long to retract fully, despite taking care of them. One of my cats also has Overgrown teeth (it caused his front teeth to never grow properly).

@Karmo
I wouldn't prefer it, but I wouldn't be entirely opposed to them randomly dying from 0 to 8, like some other semi-lethal muts...

however, there is evidence lions actually do take care of their injured/sick pride members.
https://africageographic.com/blog/lions-recover-quickly-injuries/

And males don't ever hunt anyway, but a Fat king could use his weight to advantage in fights. I'm still saying that this would be a non-mute mutation, too. I still stand by Overgrown Claws not being a mutation, because instead of using the scientific term like other mutes, its literally Over-Grown Claws. But I could just be completely pedantic, lmfaooo. You're perfectly allowed to disagree with my over-literal interpretation of things!

(My cat, Kite has Claws that are always too long to fully retract, we always care for her claws but they just *don't* because the quick extends too far out for that clipping shenanigans (playfights are fun :P))

Needs a bit of work but that would be pretty interesting! I like this idea :00

Thyroid problem maybe? or diabetes as already said could make it work like this;
Maybe it could come into affect affect/noticed later in life, like when they're adults or over 5 years of age, that would be a massive load of work taken off for Xylax and other peeps working on coding that in. Since every file has to be re-drawn for the bases and marks and HNG (we'd also get it quicker if approved :>)

Hi! My life has been severely negatively impacted by Thyroid failure and it's a very common type of disorder! Seeing it called "cute" and used for the express purpose of wanting "cute fat lions" is...not cool, honestly. Needless to say, I'm not supporting this suggestion.

While I dont support this, they never said Thyroid failure, just chunky lions. You do not have a monopoly on it, and you can not decide what it means to be 'chunky'. Dont pull the disability card here

@kelpy lmao yeah it is common cause i have it too, cause i've lived for my whole life with PTSD, and that made everything not work right. got a bunch of nerve problems too. I never mentioned a thyroid disorder though... just a genetic predisposition to obesity? Which is something that exists in real life without any particular disorder. Plus, i'm a little chunky IRL because of the thyroid problems ect, and wanted a lion that reflected my body type lol. I also genuinely think chunky people, including myself, *are* cute. :)

I really understand being sensitive about things though, I get affected easily by people making jokes about ""ptsd flashbacks,"" I hope this cleared up my intentions and you aren't too badly affected. :(
