The Lock Legion was created in 2003 by Strawberry Lock as a joke to annoy the Clock Crew, a well-established crew of animators on Newgrounds. They started with the animation SBL's Triumph submitted on the 24th of May 2003:

In due course, they formed into a serious crew on NG and were the second crew to gain recognition from NG. They have an active website, which, as of Sept 2008 has 7 pages of members.

Lock Legion Lore Edit

The king of the Lock Legion achieves his or her power through the powers of the Key of Glorton. [6] The ancient stories tell that the Key was found by Strawberry Lock in the Cave of Ashunda. It is said that Banana Lock took control of the key in his rise to power.

Running Themes Edit

In Flash Animations

  • Cool Things, a flash series, was created by Psychojester, also known as C-Lock and C-Star. This series generally consists of random and often times, spam flashes.

Site-based Themes

  • Often times, the Lock Legion forums and Newgrounds website are used as inspiration for flashes.
  • "Fade Wulp" is considered the mascot and enemy of the Lock Legion. Fade Wulp is considered as a similar but separate person than Wade Fulp of Newgrounds. Fade was utilized on the banner for 3 years. Recently, Banana Lock has taken back the position on Lock Legion site banners. Often Fade represents the worst aspects of Newgrounds culture. Fade was first shown on Newgrounds in the flash, Fade Wulp Is Evil.
  • The Slums refer to an individual forum on the Lock Legion forums in which members are allowed to speak non-sense, and is more often known as and for being the "Spam Forum". A long back story for this section developed from active members in the original major spam forum, which was named, "The Slums". The flashes, The Slums[7] and The Slums 2 [8], give details into this back story. Notable members involved with the original slums include members, Jujube Lock, Lollerskates, and Thorngage. In more recent years, The Slums have become place for members to post topics that would not be acceptable on the General forum due to indecent content, spam, and/or insulting commentary.
  • The terms "Doorknob" or "Doorknob's alt" can be used for anyone when they first join the Lock Legion, just to annoy them, kinda like Noob. These are often people with bad spelling, posting hundreds of images in one post, or just being irrelevent. This is because Juicebox lock, the original Doorknob, had gained a reputation for creating alternate accounts and so many members accused almost every new member of being Doorknob, and they were right mostly, until Doorknob was unbanned (due to being a little BITCH) and stopped making alts. People still tend to call newer members alts of Doorknob as joke (or because they are stupid)
