Rex say those that have this marking often behave in a childish manner. It's seen as cute, which many that sport it find greatly annoying.

Symmetry Rules


  • Vario is an optional, low-gene free marking that won't appear in the geno. 
  • It can only be applied to Rexals with 3 genes or less, and if used should be listed in the Free Marks Used section during design approval. 
  • This marking's edges must all be the same. It cannot be textured in some areas and semi soft in others. 
  • Vario's spots are allowed to have a slight gradient and vary in intensity. 
  • Vario's spots should look natural and are allowed to have holes in them. 
  • Vario is allowed to gradually fade out into the base coat.
  • Vario should never be ordered to a degree where it creates a pattern, shape, or pointillism effect.
  • Vario's spots are not allowed to be so elongated they resemble striping.
  • Vario's spots should generally be no smaller than the Rexal's eye. Whilst a few smaller spots are okay, they should not make up the majority of the design. 
  • You can only use the colors of the main portion of the slider of your base coat, which is specified in your geno.
  • You cannot use an adjacent slider for this marking!

Vario imitates natural spots on animals on the tail, back of the neck and lower legs. It's able to use all the colors from the main portion of your base coat slider, despite how much lighter or darker they may be. It's able to gently blend into the base coat, but should never look like it sits above higher level markings.
Here's a good example of how vario is able to flow into the base coat.


Vario Shapes


Valid Vario

Permitted hard edge variant. Permitted semi-soft edged variant. Vario spots are permitted to have individual gradients. Vario spots are permitted to have an overall gradient.
Vario is also permitted to both fade into the base coat AND exhibit a gradient on individual spots or the whole marking.


Invalid Vario

Vario cannot have two layers of spots. Vario cannot use colors from an adjacent slider, it must come from your basecoat's main slider. While Vario can fade into the basecoat overall, it cannot have varying opacity within spots. Vario cannot have different edges on the inside and outside of the spots.
Vario is a free marking that doesn't appear on the genotype. Because of this it cannot become dominant and therefore has no dominant rules.

Vario can have a lot of variety in its spots, these are some examples!
