    Note that this is a "special" lion, not the regular you find on many maps. If you have trouble finding Lion (Alpha), there are 4 of them on the small island south of your base in the 4th map of the Glory of Greece campaign (2nd campaign). You can even use ships to take out the lion, just be careful for enemy ships. The achievement pops shortly after killing the lion, no need to finish the map.

    These lions can be spawned using the 'Editors' however I found it is quicker and easier to follow the method below.

    From the main menu click the following menu options:
    Single Player > Campaigns > Glory of Greece > The Trojan War

    Once the map has loaded press enter on the keyboard and type the below followed by pressing the enter key again:

    This will spawn an unstoppable black car.

    Scroll down and select the Dock and build a 'Light Transport (Hotkey: E). Once this is made, board the car on to the transport and head south to an island with 4 Lion (Alpha) ready to go.

    Pink Circle on the minimap: Starting Location
    Green Circle on the minimap: Lion Island
    Red Circles on main screen: Lions

    Unload the car, kill the lions and the achievement will pop. No need to finish the mission.

    Yamato Campaign - Scenario 1: The Assassins

    Every time you load up the first scenario of the Yamato campaign, there are 3 alpha lions at your spawn point. Just kill one with your one starting troop (Hero Xu Fu) and get the achievement. It takes 4 shots with his bow to kill the lion with no cheats on. Super easy.
