Ever heard of The Furry Scale? Yes? No? Let us share with you some history on the famous series of charts, or whatever these Furry Scales really are.
So, the first ever furry scale was born on February 7th, 1996. It was titled “The Code of the Furries” and it consisted of a rating system for where people “fall on the human-to-animal scale” . You can see the example below:
1. Basically human, with minor furry features (perhaps eyes, nose, ears, claws, some fur, etc)
2. Humanoid, with significant furry features (muzzle, tail, etc); this includes centaurs and merpeople
3. Anthropomorphic animal (or taur)
4. Equally comfortable on two or four legs (or, if you’re a taur, on four or six)
5. Animal shape, with some unusual features (perhaps hands, speech, etc); this includes most dragons, gryphons, etc
6. Normal animal shape
That was ancient history. Coming back to our ages, in 2010, a pixiv user posted a chart which shows a girl turning into a fox; it all happens gradually, as you can see below. Also, there is a variation on this one, which says “Knowing is half the battle” along with “Oh shit ni**a what are you doing”.
Then we jump forward to 2012, when DeviantArt Artist Timscorpion created an illustration named “Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism” and it shows how a human-moth is turning into a moth.
Then, 2 years later, we got another notable scale featuring Bastet from the multiplayer game Smite. You get it, it is a trend, a way of showing a transformation in a fun, reliable way.
And since it is named The Furry Scale, let’s not forget about Hentai artist Po-Ju who created another scale which depicts 5 levels of furry, from human to cat.
