"Canon" of Lionel is widely regarded as the first image ever posted about Lionel, as well as the streams. Anything posted after these two events are considered as fan-made variations.
Count Lionel in Venture?
Count Lionel is not in Venture.
There are no references to him at all in the code, and there is no code to allow for any entity to act like Lionel. There is no level terrain code to generate scarlet-rock torches, tunnels or elaborate Torture Chambers with bear traps.
There is no way Count Lionel can ever exist in any vanilla clients. Any claims that he is in Venture are completely false. Any appearances he has are caused by mods being installed.
All signs of Lionel, like trees with no leaves, varying fluorescent towers, suspicious messages on signs, etc. are either glitches, formatted naturally, or placed by another player to mislead you.
Count Lionel is summoned in Rainforest Temple by Robert Jacob to kill the Clips by using the infamous altar. However, Brendan has confirmed that Lionel was in the episode to reference the myths and is not in Venture in any way, shape, or form.
- Cowbrianol is Count Lionel's brother.
- He is rumored to appear as a zealot in a new Venture movie.
