Ever wanted to give a nice backdrop for your lion to reside within? A cave, or perhaps a forest? A colourful scene? Or maybe just a background to match their aesthetic? Well, fear not! There are many backgrounds to choose from on Lioden.

You can obtain different backgrounds for your lions in several ways. The most common way is by purchasing them from their respective shops, though you can also win some via minigames.

This page covers previews for all available backgrounds on Lioden!
