UPGRADED to LION!
Press W to release a mighty ROAR (Rawr!)!
- Has a maximum XP of 28.5K score, at which point it will upgrade to the Bear or Swordfish or the Walrus.
- Can hide in large hiding holes, Whirlpools and Berry bushes.
- Can be eaten by all animals above it.
- It has a special ability when you press W, the Lion roars stunning and knocking out animals in the radius making it harder for you to catch them. Also, the roar does slight damage to the prey that gets hit by it.
- This roar has a set range and has a cooldown of 9 seconds.
The lion is colored as deep yellow with a darker yellow mane. As it eats, it will slowly bloat to become much larger than any of its predecessors, yet is still dwarfed by most of the later animals.
Eat coconuts to gain XP easily. You can surprise-attack prey from a hiding hole and then roar. This is useful for boosting animals, so they can't boost away. Your roar will stun them so you can eat them easily. Also use your ability to drive away gorillas, because they can climb trees and therefore can steal your coconuts and bananas. When running away from predators, roar and then run as fast as you can and hide in a hiding hole. But don't get too far before using your ability because then it will be useless. If they come back, you can jump out, tail-bite them, roar to stun them, and then you better be fast on your feet if you don't want to end up as breakfast.
- The Lion has existed in Mope.io since it was first released.
- The Lion is one of two animals to have animals added directly before AND directly after it. The Deer and Cheetah were both added in updates.
- It is the animal that has moved the most around the upgrade path, going from:
- It use to be the only land animal with a land equivalent, the gorilla.
- Like the Hippo, Wolf and the Wolverine, their abilities make the player say a message.
- Prior to the rebalance, the roar could give a very rare occurrence of a "MEOW!" which gives off a weak stun and a very short range.
