Furry Scale, also known as the Anthro Scale, refers to a series of charts and discussions regarding the artistic continuum between human furries and animals.
On February 7th, 1996, the earliest known example of a furry scale was posted in a document titled "The Code of the Furries", which contained a rating system for where people "fall on the human-to-animal scale":
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 mer-people
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
On June 16th 2010, pixiv user かｂ uploaded a chart which depicts a girl transforming into a fox up a set of stairs (shown below, left). An English variation features the slogan "Knowing is half the battle" from the cartoon G.I. Joe along with the phrase "Oh shit nigga what are you doing" (shown below, right). This scale subsequently inspired an infrequently used tag on Pixiv containing similar images.
On December 4th, 2012, DeviantArtist Timscorpion uploaded an illustration titled "Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism," depicting a human-moth hybrid transforming into a moth (shown below).
On March 3rd, 2014, Redditor Psykun submitted a furry scale image featuring the character Bastet from the third person action multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game Smite to the /r/Smite subreddit (shown below).
Po-ju Furry Scale
One of the most frequently used images of furry scale originates from Hentai artist known as Po-ju, showing 5 different levels of furry, ranging from fully human to fully cat. Various parodies of this translated version circulate on the web, including those that only use English captions and do not use Po-Ju's art.
