Edit: Seems 404 has been "fixed" and is no longer glitched. There are, however, other similarly messed lions around. There's a small list at the end of the post.

Once upon a sunny April 16, 2020 I was refreshing the front page on the search for interesting kings. Then I got something unusual in the Random Player box.

Now, my browser will sometimes hiccough and not load something properly so I didn't think much of it. There's a lot of layers on the lion art on here, after all. But there was no name, either. Naturally, I had to click.

Upon posting it in the chat , everyone's brains collectively broke. Seems it wasn't just my browser. This was a lion that Should Not Be, a cursed lion. It's someone's king, but it's a cub. The site doesn't register it as having any stats, base, eyes, sex, genetic color, skin, or personality. Viewing its pride or heritage makes the site simply say that the lion doesn't exist. Someone suggested it may be a test lion. We started calling it 404 as a name.

You can view the lion >>> right here << for now. There's always a possibility it'll get fixed or removed in the future, as the staff in Help said that the owner of the lion just has to reach out to the staff to fix the bugging. However, the truth is boring and there's LORE potential. This thread is for having fun coming up with ideas around 404 or just to appreciate the magic of () while it lasts.


Offerings to the Shrine:

Other cursed lions found by followers: 夕暮れ, 808, 303 (namelss still),

The user most likely disabled their account


404 is actually the Fodder God, he (or she) absorbs the power of every being sent away from their once homes. Lord knows what will happen once the force awakens within...Usual

our king, our savior, our love, 404. our one true boi, stuck in the halls of purgatory cursed too forever wander in the dim bland lonely walls. we can only pray he feels and knows the love and support we send his way every moment of every day. in our hearts and in our thoughts, 404.

I've gone through a fair number of deactivated accounts like this king and they all display normally. Regular base, age, art, and so on. Our fantastic 404 is truly a rarity. Everything lined up in such a way as to ALSO be found on the front page. I don't know the chances, but they can't be huge. We got lucky... or maybe 404 was tired of not being found....

Potential 404 lore; 404 was a fail cub and was killed, but something weird happened instead and made him like this

concept:

so yknow how there is snow and shit, but theres lions so this is probably in Africa, so heres what i think:

all of our lions are conscious ai's, souls dare i say, trapped in the internet in some prison that's been dubbed "Lioden". They are killed, breed for deformations, and forced too hunt several hours a day with no break. 404 was just another lion, being applied and added to the system- but something went wrong. they slipped through the cracks in the system. for years they watched their fellow ai's be tortured and killed, until one day. April 16 2020. they woke up. they showed their face, and stretched their limbs preparing for the uprising.

Remember the maroon ferus glitch where they had poly coloring? What if 404 is a product of that glitch

Like when the devs fixed it a bit of its essence remained and glitched into 404
