"FARE THEE WELL, LESSER CHAMPION! LAKIGR IS THE TRUE POKEMON CHAMPION!!!" - LAKIGR to NUTSACK
LAKIGR (ラキーグル, Rakiiguru) is the 10 year-old main protagonist from Pallet Town of Team Four Star's Pokémon Leaf Green NUZLOCKE, TANTOR's eternal rival, and anti-villain of the sequel. His name is an amalgamation of the first two letters of his creators' names, Lanipator, Kirran, and Grant.
He is heavily hinted to be the father of RYFUBA.
LAKIGR has slightly below average height making him seem a bit short along with a fairly pale skin tone as white as snow but also looks smart and handsome, he wears a Green and White hat resembling Ash's original hat but with the Team Four Star logo (it was later partially erased since he went rogue). His Jet Black Spiky Hair is similar to Ash's but he has a large bang followed by a smaller bang hanging in the front and long thin eyebrows. He has Sharp Fully-outlined Close-drawn Scary/Evil Black Eyes (Red when he is very emotional since he learned some psychic abilities from Sabrina) like that of a Saiyan and wears a Green Sleeve-less White Collared Jacket with a White Trim Unzipped, Black Leotard underneath, Yellow Backpack, and White Gloves resembling Vegeta's along with Dark Blue Jeans and Green Sneakers.
After his 2-year training period on Mt. Silver, LAKIGR became more muscular for a 12 year-old, and like STRIKER, he attained some battle scars on his body and face/cheek.
During his time in the Alola Region, LAKIGR switches from his Green Jacket to a Green and White Short-Sleeved Shirt with the Green Number 16 in the center of it.
While LAKIGR was an average young boy, but a BRILLIANT Trainer who loved all of his Pokemon and always dreamed of forming a team, having the passion to go on a quest to become the strongest Champion in the Kanto Region. His character is that of a puppet which was molded by his creators, "Punish the weak. Promote the strong." Their voices (Lani, Kirran, and Grant) echoed in his head for months on end. Because of this not only are his Pokemon monsters but LAKIGR as well, punishing dead Pokemon with the hydraulic press turning him into a ruthless Cold-Blooded sociopath. When he looks into a mirror, all he sees is his alter ego, an insane/monsterous version of himself, more obsessed than ever to become the strongest. After breaking out of their mind control and filled with conviction, the sadistic LAKIGR's goal is to exact revenge; make his creators suffer by making them watch their precious Pokemon die on Mt. Silver.
He does sympathize with his wife Sabrina (whom he shows more emotion towards) as both are victims who have been subjected to multiple personalities in their heads. While he's Honorable, Prideful, Sly, Tactical, Sullen, and a bit of a Loner, he's been known to constantly act condescending towards people he underestimates and pragmatic to people he overestimates. While LAKIGR has his dour traits and sadism, he usually smiles when he is being cocky and condescending as he arrogantly promotes his strong team members, or when he is with Sabrina.
LAKIGR and NUTSACK were rivals since they were newborn babies (LAKIGR would wear the Green color scheme to NUTSACK's Red color scheme) having physically fought each other, and LAKIGR always coming out on top condemning his rival to be an idiotic joke. He made fun of NUTSACK because of his name and his inability to love his Pokemon though he was enraged when he found out NUTSACK freed BEEZY. He has passion for gambling at the Game Corner and will spend hours doing so.
Mom: LAKIGR's mom, as over protective of him (justified as LAKIGR wasn't raised with a father of father figure) as she was she let's her son leave on a journey blissfully unaware of the voices in his head after being convinced by the television, she resides in Pallet Town. 2 years later she wonders where her 12 year-old son is during the Soul Silver NUZLOCKE. After LAKIGR's defeat by TANTOR and MR. STAKE, she was fucked by HUX.
Dad: LAKIGR's dad. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
Sabrina: LAKIGR's wife, as confirmed in Episode 39 of the Leaf Green NUZLOCKE since Sabrina used Future Sight and her future "looked bright." Before the fight with TANTOR, LAKIGR went to visit Sabrina about plans after the fight like vacationing in Alola.
RYFUBA: There is some evidence to suggest that LAKIGR and RYFUBA are related, especially how they both treat their Pokémon (such as LAKIGR crushing his failed Pokémon in a vice and RYFUBA using low-level Pokémon as sacrifices in battle) they also share many parallels (explained in the Trivia section). It is possible that, due to the broken timeline resulting from the NuzPoint, LAKIGR may have fathered RYFUBA with Johanna before meeting Sabrina.
LAKIGR's Dad's Ancestor: According to Veilstone's Myth, he was a young swordsman regretting his actions after an encounter with a Pokémon: A young man, callow and foolish in innocence, came to own a sword. With it, he smote Pokémon, which gave sustenance, with carefree abandon. Those not taken as food, he discarded, with no afterthought. The following year, no Pokémon appeared. Larders grew bare. The young man, seeking the missing Pokémon, journeyed afar. Long did he search. And far and wide, too, until one he did find. Asked he, "Why do you hide?" To which the Pokémon replied... "If you bear your sword to bring harm upon us, with claws and fangs, we will exact a toll." "From your kind we will take our toll, for it must be done." "Done it must be to guard ourselves and for it, I apologize." To the skies, the young man shouted his dismay. "In having found the sword, I have lost so much." "Gorged with power, I grew blind to Pokémon being alive." "I will never fall savage again. This sword I denounce and forsake." "I plead for forgiveness, for I was but a fool." So saying, the young man hurled the sword to the ground, snapping it. Seeing this, the Pokémon disappeared to a place beyond seeing...
LAKIGR's physical strength surpasses that of the average twelve year-old after two years of training on Mt. Silver. He additionally has some psychic abilities taught to him by Sabrina.
LAKIGR while a hardcore sadist and monster is still efficient and passionate, he formed his traitorous and rogue Pokemon Team (lead by BORK LASER) specifically to cover weaknesses enemies would use to their advantage. After defeating their opponents, they follow WANDA ROWSEY's example and proceed to cannibalize the Pokemon since they are The Monstrous Cannibals.

TANTOR V.S. LAKIGR: The Journey
It began with the (mostly) normal Pokemon Trainer LAKIGR becoming the NUZLOCKE Champion, while he gained huge success, it came at a cost, he was turned into a psychopath by 3 voices (Lani, Kirran, and Grant) and was forced to kill weak Pokemon who died. After breaking out of the voices' control over him and escaping them for 2 years protecting his Pokemon... his most trusted friends from STRIKER to BUTTDORK, he seeked revenge making sure the voices experience what he went through during Pokémon Leaf Green NUZLOCKE. This caused LAKIGR to distance himself from his mom in Pallet Town, travel to Mt. Silver where he went through vigorous training, and people to lose contact with him not knowing where he is. The only person that did know and who he still regularly visits is his wife Sabrina.
The voices then decided to have the 28 year-old TANTOR annihilate the mistake they created. However TANTOR himself has suffered from his own problems; for a kid who simply liked going on adventures he has the strained relationship with his mother and father, the loss of his sister at the Slowpoke Well, and as a result of his past, having the mind of a Pokemon, permanently. He suffered from being bullied by every child (except for Lyra) around him because of these things, until he got his justice by bullying them, and briefly considered to join Team Rocket. He didn't care for others but himself, he was thought to never change, but this was proven horrendously incorrect after TANTOR's meeting with MR. STAKE. At first TANTOR disliked MR. STAKE repeatedly telling him to "SHUT UP!" since he hated how happy MR. STAKE always was despite TANTOR's horrible past, he wanted to catch more Pokemon he liked more and have MR. STAKE die in his battles. But then after the losses of the Pokemon he liked more (even calling them his children), and MR. STAKE not dying despite the multiple times his life was risked for his trainer, TANTOR was saddened by this and then buried the deceased, he realized his Pokemon were his family he loved and trusted the most and has always been there for him, especially MR. STAKE who helped him the most on his quest and keeping his ever-lasting smile since the start.
When LAKIGR found out about TANTOR who the voices have used to puppet with the intent to defeat him, he trained to make them suffer about the deaths of their treasured Pokemon, TANTOR did the same with the goal to defeat LAKIGR to stop him from hurting his Pokemon since they were the only family he had and loved after his other members died early on. Both of them settling this feud at the peak of Mt. Silver.
Larenti V.S. LAKIGR: The Vacation
LAKIGR returns in Pokémon Moon NUZLOCKE to do battle with TANTOR's son Larenti at the Battle Tree. Earlier Larenti was too sleep deprived to notice death, but as soon as he got some rest and became Champion, now he was traumatized with the loss of his friends. It's why he lost some of his edge. Yet LAKIGR still noticed the glitter in Larenti's eye. The twinkle that appears in every person's eyes confirming they still have the will to fight.
- LAKIGR is the first and only TFS protagonist to go rogue.
- LAKIGR is only TFS Pokemon protagonist to reappear as an obstacle for the main protagonist to fight.
- While LAKIGR is the first NUZLOCKE protagonist created, Maqubi is one of the first protagonists in the TFS NUZLOCKE Timeline. Maqubi starts after Kilchan.
- LAKIGR and RYFUBA and are the only NUZLOCKE Protagonists that have the Four-Star Balls on their hats.
- Additionally they are the only ones to start their Pokemon Journeys at 10 years of age.
- LAKIGR appears in The Dating World of Team Four Star Gaming Dating Sim, a downloadable game by WonderGamer101.
- LAKIGR was able to marry Sabrina at a young age of 10, this means either the age to get married is different where he comes from, or it was a secret marriage (however, knowing TeamFourStar's storytelling; it was probably both).
- When LAKIGR battled against Larenti, the only Pokemon he still had reminiscent from his battle against TANTOR was STRIKER, BORK LASER, and a Young BUTTDORK. Many people prefer to imagine that his team is identical to the previous battle with his rival TANTOR. Regardless, this proves that once he broke free TFS' control, LAKIGR began to revive and care for his Pokemon.
- In hindsight, LAKIGR's Starter (STRIKER) and RYFUBA's Starter (RAISIN) would fit each other perfectly.
- RAISIN's pyromaniac, tyrannical, prideful, noble, and pompous character fits with the honorable, tactical, ruthless, sadistic, monster LAKIGR became.
- Similarly, STRIKER would bond with the more silent and laid-back RYFUBA who he himself has connections to dragons like STRIKER via his name/catching method ("RYFUBA!!!") which roughly translates to "Dragon Containment Wave".
- RAISIN's pyromaniac, tyrannical, prideful, noble, and pompous character fits with the honorable, tactical, ruthless, sadistic, monster LAKIGR became.
- The Pokémon in the myth about LAKIGR's Dad's Ancestor may possibly refer to Giratina, which in turn would explain why the myth refers to Veilstone City, as it is the closest city to the Turnback Cave. Also, because the Pokémon fled to a location beyond sight, which is possibly the Distortion World.
- The sword LAKIGR's ancestor used could have been Aegislash and everytime it made contact with the Pokémon's blood it would absorb it's soul.
