Abstract: If $ X$ is a metric space, then $ \mathcal{C}_{X}$ and $ \mathcal{L}_X$ denote the semigroups of continuous and Lipschitz mappings, respectively, from $ X$ to itself. The relative rank of $ \mathcal{C}_{X}$ modulo $ \mathcal{L}_{X}$ is the least cardinality of any set $ U\setminus \mathcal{L}_{X}$ where $ U$ generates $ \mathcal{C}_{X}$. For a large class of separable metric spaces $ X$ we prove that the relative rank of $ \mathcal{C}_{X}$ modulo $ \mathcal{L}_X$ is uncountable. When $ X$ is the Baire space $ \mathbb{N}^{\mathbb{N}}$, this rank is $ \aleph_{1}$. A large part of the paper emerged from discussions about the necessity of the assumptions imposed on the class of spaces from the aforementioned results.
