Fur Affinity expands rules against "youthful appearing" characters in adult works to Pokemon and Digimon charactersPosted by Sonious on Mon 22 May 2023 - 10:34
On May 19th Fur Affinity had announced that it will expand the rules toward banning portrayals of youthful appearing characters, even if the character is addressed as being older in universe, engaging in sexual situations to include digimon and pokemon characters. While situations that portrayed actual young anthro characters in sex (known colloquially as cub porn) had been banned 13 years ago, there were elements of gray area on characters that are determined as mature in age, but younger in appearance that were later expanded upon. This update is a furthering of that expansion.
In the announcement Fur Affinity had noted that there is a method for artists who have posted works that may be in this gray area to discover how they would be handled by submitting trouble tickets against it.
If you have questions as to whether this may apply to your content, please feel free to open a ticket under “NSFW Underage Content” with links to the content in question, and we can verify if the content is in violation or not.
Artists have been informed that the amendment will start to be enforced on July 1st.
Last April, web animation series Death Battle's spin-off series One Minute Melee featured as combatants Digimon Renamon and Pokémon Lucario. However, that battle could be considered an under-card fight in the Battle of the Mons, as the main series has now featured Agumon and partner Tai for team Digimon versus Charizard and trainer Red for team Pokémon.

In response to the ultimate fanboy question, "who would win in a fight?" the web-series Death Battle from website Screw Attack decided to finally answer the question with actual "research" about the abilities of various fictional combatants, complete with sprite animations of the fights. Then, because research, even fictional research, is hard, the spin-off series One Minute Melee was started, which is a quick and dirty, no explanations, this-is-how-we-want-it-to-go-down version.
