The Lion used by Antoine Fourrière, in Bilateral Chess and Jacks and Witches 84, is a weaker chess piece. But the Murray Lion itself is currently quite popular. Glenn Overby uses it in his Abecedarian Big Chess, Beastmaster Chess, and Decimal Chess - now called Meirìqí (Beautiful Sun Chess). Some other chess variants using this piece are:
