Polyking Exclusion

Introduction

A polyking is a figure formed by joining squares edge to edge or diagonally corner to corner. How few cells can one remove from an 8×8 checkerboard to exclude a given polyking? Here I show minimal known exclusions. If you find a better one, please write. Thanks to Jenard Cabilao for suggesting this idea.

I show exclusions only for polykings that are not also polyominoes.
