Funny… the Lion attacks the King using the King itself as hurdle! Of course this is a speciality of cylinder boards I think.

What about a Rose-Lion on a normal board?
The principle in question is not about the board but about a “null-move”.
Can a Rose arrive to the square it occupies already or can a Rose-Lion serve as a hurdle to itself?

I think the null-move is in such positions unacceptable. Hurdle should be the thing that “stands firmly on the ground”, but rose-lion is during the move “flying in the air”. Another question is whether the king stands in the position bKc3 – wRNe8 (RN e8) in check. I think so, that it is using the same principles as in the published problem.
But Popeye does not know it …

Popeye seems to make at most one circle for rose-shaped pieces, therefore moves with longer logic are not considered.
