Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Released in 1994, and to date, the fourth most financially successful film in the Disney Animated Canonnote Bested only by Frozen, Zootopia, and Frozen II, two decades later, making it the studio's most successful traditionally animated film.; and its 32nd entry.The Lion King tells the story of a lion cub named Simba who is heir to the African Pride Lands, only to be tricked by his jealous uncle into believing he set into motion the events that led to the death of his father, Mufasa, who is the Pride Land's ruler. Simba flees the Pride Lands in shame, but is saved from certain death in the wastelands by two wisecracking animals who raise Simba under their responsibility-free philosophy of "Hakuna Matata" ("no worries"). However, when Simba meets an old friend from his past years later, he must decide whether to continue his carefree existence or return to the dying Pride Lands and reclaim his throne from Scar's treacherous and iron-pawed rule.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A plot described by some as Hamlet, Macbeth and (debatably) the Malian epic Sundiata Keita, with a few hints of Henry IV, but with Talking Animals. The sequels seem to follow the Shakespearean trend, as The Lion King II: Simba's Pride is Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth With Talking Animals In Africa, and The Lion King 1½ resembles Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (a Perspective Flip of Hamlet, written in the 1960s).The original film's success led to a massive franchise that includes two TV series, a video game for Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, and the third-longest running and the highest-grossing Broadway musical of all time. It remains one of Disney's biggest animated cash cows to this day; in 2011, The Lion King received a re-release in Disney Digital 3D, which became the first re-release of a movie since the 1997 re-release of Return of the Jedi to hit number one at the box office.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })One of the approximately 40 foreign dubs of this movie, incidentally, was in Zulu, and it remains the only Disney movie to ever have been dubbed in an African language.In mid-late 2016, hot off the success of their live-action/CGI hybrid remake of The Jungle Book, Disney and Jon Favreau announced a photorealistic computer-animated remake of The Lion King, released on July 19, 2019. That film has since become the highest-grossing animated film of all time, proving the reigning popularity of this franchise.

Correlation/Causation Gag: Simba roars, trying to scare off the hyenas attacking him and Nala, but as a small cub he can only manage a small growl-ish thing. The hyenas taunt him about it, goading him to try again, but this time Mufasa roars at the exact same time Simba does.

Bloodless Carnage
 The Lion King (1994) / int_135b9977
comment
Bloodless Carnage: Mufasa's body, despite being trampled by a stampede, is almost intact. Scar and Simba duke it out with claws extended, but neither actually sheds blood, aside from a very quick "spray" from Simba's muzzle after taking a hit, though it could be saliva or sweat. Simba wins the fight by knocking Scar off a cliff. Averted with Shenzi; when Simba slashes her face to protect Nala, it leaves three small but clear and bloody marks. Acknowledged in the commentary in that the meat the hyenas pull from a zebra haunch looks closer in appearance to striped neckties than it does flesh, and there is no blood anywhere from the carcass.

Hakuna Matata: Trope Namer. Timon and Pumbaa tell Simba, who has just run away from his responsibilities and his life, that he doesn't need to worry about the past, because a carefree existence is much less trouble. Subverted: This mentality ends up becoming an obstacle Simba must throw off before he can kill Scar and claim his inheritance. In fact, it shows him being apathetically cynical. "Bad things happen and there's nothing you can do about it. So why worry?"

Stars Are Souls: Simba says he was taught that the stars are the spirits of the old kings, which gets a confirmation when he later receives a starry vision of his father. Timon, on the other hand, claims that stars are fireflies that got stuck in the sky. That also got confirmed... by The Princess and the Frog.

The king's brother overthrowing (and killing) him, and the prince is persuaded by the ghost of his father? A quote from Reversal of Fortune:

Right Behind Me: Scar doesn't realize the hyenas are close enough to hear him tell Simba that the hyenas were the real enemies. Unusually for this trope, Scar doesn't immediately find out they were right there. It's revealed to him a few minutes later when they decide to kill him.

"Well Done, Son!" Guy: In an interesting variation, Simba becomes this for the second half of the movie. Although anything but an emotionally distant father, Mufasa is often preoccupied with the duties of the throne, and Simba certainly sees him as a hero, worshiping the ground his paws tread upon◊. But there is no indication Simba ever doubts he has his father's love or respect... until Scar convinces him he is to blame for his father's death. Then, overcome with remorse and believing no one could ever forgive him, he voluntarily goes into exile. It is Mufasa's ghost, chiding him for forgetting telling him "You are my son and the one true king," that sets him back on the right path again. And with a simple, single word, "Remember..." he lets his son know that while he was disappointed in him for abandoning the Pride Lands and forgetting who he used to be, as long as he is true to himself and who Mufasa raised him to be, his spirit will be very proud of him indeed.

comment
Misplaced Wildlife: Giant anteaters and leafcutter ants — both species endemic to Latin America — appear briefly in "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" and "The Circle of Life", respectively. All the other fauna is from Africa, although not all are from East Africa where the movie appears to take place (e.g., meerkats like Timon are from South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia, and mandrills like Rafiki are from the jungles of West and Central Africa). Gorillas are also briefly seen amongst the savannah animals at the end of "The Circle of Life" as well as once in "I Just Can't Wait To Be King", even though gorillas are forest-dwelling primates. The rodent who warns Zazu of the hyenas' invasion also counts. He's referred to as a Gopher in related media (which doesn't make sense in itself, since gophers are endemic to the Americas), but he's actually most likely a big-headed mole-rat; said species is only found in the Ethiopian Highlands, VERY far-removed from the Serengeti.

Underestimating Badassery: As cubs, Simba tries to pounce on Nala after they get into an argument over who deserves credit for the two of them losing Zazu, with Simba trying to give himself credit for both the plan and pulling it off but Nala saying it was her idea and he pulled it off with her. After pouncing Nala, she easily flips Simba and pins him with almost no effort, much to his shock and embarrassment. After shoving her off him he tries to pounce her again while she isn't looking but after sending them over a hill she ends up pinning him once again, and smugly rubs it in his face.

That Reminds Me of a Song: Many fans old enough to remember when The Lion King first came to DVD find that "Morning Report" was an unneeded addition to the film, since the movie didn't have it originally, nor in prints and home video releases struck from 2011 onward. It isn't a terrible song, nor completely irrelevant (it's in the stage versions of the movie, too), but it didn't exactly advance the plot or provide much (if any) character development.

Scavengers Are Scum: Lions seem to only hunt (in Real Life lions scavenge as well). The series avoids Carnivore Confusion by presenting this as a normal part of "the Circle of Life". Despite this hyenas are the antagonists of the first film, and are portrayed as the constantly hungry and brutish lackeys of Scar.

Reality Ensues
 The Lion King (1994) / int_1d9a2764
comment
Reality Ensues: Scar allows the massive hyena clan to roam freely in the Pride Lands. The massive influx of new alpha-predators proves too much for both the herbivore population and water supply of the Pride Lands, leading to drought, destruction of the kingdom's vegetation, and the mass exodus of herbivores who faced starvation. Scar's unwillingness to actually run his kingdom also is implied to have hastened the destruction of the Pride Lands, especially since he let the hyenas run rampant and presumably over-hunt. Simba has spent a majority of his life lazing around in a jungle and eating bugs for his diet, with no hunting experience or training he was suppose to receive growing up. Nala, grew up under Scar's reign and had to struggle and hunt to survive. When the two meet again after years apart they don't recognize each other at first and when Simba fights her to protect his friends from her he is only briefly able to hold her down due to surprising her. Instead of the hero overcoming a new foe and prevailing, Simba is outmatched against a more skilled opponent who got the better of him even when they were kids and only manages to survive the fight by recognizing the move Nala uses to beat him with and remembering her for using it.

Cruel and Unusual Death
 The Lion King (1994) / int_1e584efa
comment
Cruel and Unusual Death: Mufasa, when he is flung off the gorge cliff and plummets to the ground far below. It is unclear whether the fall killed him or – if initially surviving with major injuries – he was still (semi-)conscious when he is crushed repeatedly by the wildebeest stampede. Scar, although justice is served, it can still be seen as rather "cruel" when he is mauled by his former hyena stooges and concurrently burned to death.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: In the middle of "Hakuna Matata", Timon and Pumbaa do this. Simba gets in on the act a second later as he seems to give the fourth wall a puzzled Aside Glance in response to the above exchange. At least the Hungarian dub turns this joke into Leaning on the Fourth Wall, as Timon says "Not in front of the kid!" instead of "kids", which could refer to Simba just as well as a kid watching the movie.

Crapsack World
 The Lion King (1994) / int_21d70919
comment
Crapsack World: Under Scar's reign of Pride Rock, the kingdom becomes a barren wasteland because of his ineffectual rule. Due to this, he is widely hated by all of the animals, including his hyena mooks. The only reason why he's holding onto his power is because he petulantly whines about how "[he's] the king [who] can do whatever [he wants]" like a Spoiled Brat when others compare his rule against Mufasa's, refuses to acknowledge the damage his sloppy reign has caused due to his bloated ego, and explodes in anger whenever Mufasa's name is brought up. As if that wasn't enough, Pride Rock does erupt in flames. It's only after Scar is killed by his hyena minions and Simba takes his rightful place as king of Pride Rock that the kingdom transforms back into the Ghibli Hills savanna it was once under Mufasa.

Funny Background Event: Timon and Pumbaa swing on a vine in the background during young Simba's solo in "Hakuna Matata". Pumbaa does this at the beginning of the theme song in the TV series. During "Be Prepared", Scar scares Shenzi and Banzi onto geysers, which blast them up off the top of the screen. As Scar keeps singing, the two hyenas plummet down half a verse later in the background. In the sing-a-long version, some of the text is also blasted off-screen with the hyenas, and comes plummeting back down with them as well. During the last part of "Be Prepared" while Scar is going on about why he should be king the hyenas are actually singing about how much food they'll get under Scar's rule.

Carnivore Confusion
 The Lion King (1994) / int_27a58d30
comment
Carnivore Confusion: Solved by having Simba eating bugs, a Truth in Television since real lions are happy to eat them if necessary. Averted when Nala stalks and nearly kills Pumbaa, but then backs off when she has her reunion with Simba. With no recourse at all, the movie "solves" these troubling issues by Lampshading and then ignoring them, despite Timon and Pumbaa end up in the middle of starving lionesses eventually. When Simba asks Mufasa about this near the beginning of the film, he justifies them eating herbivores with it being the part of the Circle of Life.

Beauty Equals Goodness: While no one is necessarily "beautiful" or "ugly" by the standards of the human viewers, most of the good characters (Zazu and all the lions except for Scar) are quite normal looking, while the antagonists are rather creepy looking. Case in point: Scar and Mufasa. Mufasa is light-furred and red-maned with the animal equivalent of a Heroic Build. Scar is lanky with a black mane, and a sinister scar on his eye.

Light/Darkness Juxtaposition: The film contrasts the brightly-lit, beautiful Pride Lands with the Elephant Graveyard, a shadowy, miserable wasteland. Simba and Mufasa's rule is generally associated with light (eg. the Natural potlight when a new heir is born, the the warm light that surrounds Simba when he arrives to reclaim the throne, their own red-and-gold color scheme); meanwhile, when the dark-colored Scar usurps the throne, the Pride Lands are cast in shadow.

Caught in the Bad Part of Town
 The Lion King (1994) / int_3a6e5796
comment
Caught in the Bad Part of Town: When Mufasa shows Simba the Pride Lands, he informs Simba that the Elephant Graveyard is beyond their borders and they must never go there. Scar coaxes Simba to go there by telling him only the bravest lions are allowed to go there, and Simba tricks Zazu into bringing him and Nala there by telling him they're going to the water hole. When Simba, Nala, and Zazu reach the Elephant Graveyard, they get chased by the hungry hyenas, until Mufasa arrives and saves them.

When Scar shows up to feed the hyenas and chide them for not killing Simba or Nala. Banzai asks, "What were we supposed to do? Kill Mufasa?" Scar leans forward and smirks. "Precisely." Scar then starts explaining via "Be Prepared" his plan to get rid of Mufasa and Simba.

Curb-Stomp Battle: Nala easily flips and pins Simba twice as cubs, both of which he started. Especially clear the second time where he is upset that she beat him so easily and tackles her while she's distracted, but when they roll down a hill all she does is laugh while he's panicking and still pins him no problem. Subverted later when they fight evenly as adults. Rafiki versus the hyenas is over in seconds. He effortless knocks four of them out while rescuing Simba.

comment
Broken Aesop: Rafiki's message of "the past can hurt, but you can either run from it or learn from it" is broken by the narrative. Simba tries to confront his fears, but his fears start to win. Scar again puts the blame on Simba for causing his father's death, Simba starts to doubt himself again, and the other lions doubt him too. It's only when Scar has Simba in a situation where he will probably die that he confesses that he was the actual murderer. This gives Simba the confidence to finally defeat Scar and when he does this, all the others finally accept him in their midst. Of course, had Simba never tried facing his past, he would have never learned the truth, and Scar would still be king.

comment
Zerg Rush: At the climax of the movie, dozens of hyenas pounce on Scar and eat him alive. He barely gets time to struggle. In the original script and some picture book adaptations, Scar doesn't make Simba "confess" to killing Mufasa. He sets the hyenas on him, nearly forcing Simba off the cliff. The reason why the lionesses don't help is the ambush is too sudden, and they have a barricade of hyenas standing between them.

Population Control
 The Lion King (1994) / int_42d3be0b
comment
Population Control: Cleverly implied. Mufasa was a wise king, and learned 'the circle of life' means balance of predators, prey and the land's resources, and a king must understand, respect and maintain that balance. Scar on the other hand does not. In elevating the hyenas from scavengers to apex predators he creates an unholy union that overwhelms their food source. To sustain them, the prey must breed like wildfire, consequently resulting in overgrazing, turning the lush Pridelands into an arid wasteland. Resources exhausted, the herds have no choice but to leave. Scar however refuses to abandon his kingdom (as that would mean he's no longer king), thus condemning his subjects to death by starvation.

Scenery Gorn: The Pride Lands are absolutely destroyed by the end of Scar's rule. When Simba returns home to challenge him for the throne, it has been reduced to a barren, lifeless wasteland riddled with the carcasses of the hyenas' dead prey, with not one patch of grass or a drop of water to be seen for miles around; all of it the result of unchecked consumption on the part of both Scar and his minions, who have driven all the herds away that once inhabited the lush plains. Even more so during the final battle, where a lightning storm sets the land aflame before the rains come to end the destruction.

Sapient Eat Sapient: Part of the hyena's failure to kill Simba and Nala is that they're too busy taunting them with their dinner plans to actually kill them. Timon and Pumbaa save Simba only after agreeing that they can convince him not to eat them. The only one even remotely upset with Nala's attempt to eat Pumbaa is Timon, and only for a moment. Though he is still afraid of her when she wakes him up. While left ambiguous, it's entirely possible the hyenas ate Scar after turning on him.

Disney Villain Death: Subverted. While Simba does manage to throw Scar a significant distance below him, the fall isn't what does him in. Rather, the hyenas overhearing his attempt to throw them under the bus is what seals his fate. Also, inverted, as Mufasa was the one who fell to his ultimate doom at the hands of Scar and got his carcass trampled by wildebeest.

I Was Beaten by a Girl: Simba is visibly frustrated at being handily pinned by Nala in their scraps. He uses this fighting tactic to recognise her as an adult, and later uses it against Scar. Though he does eventually pin her himself, it is actually the least like a "fight" out of them all, being while they were romantically rolling down a hill together, and she still leads him 3-1.

Death Glare: After pinning Simba during their fight in the jungle, Nala briefly glares down at him menacingly, practically nose to nose with him, until he says her name. It is unclear if she was possibly going to kill him or just warning him not to interfere again. Scar gives an aside one to the hyenas when realising they failed to kill Simba.

Restrained Revenge: Downplayed and played for laughs; during "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" Simba pulls Nala into the lake, which she is visibly shocked by. After getting out, she grins at Simba and playfully shoves him back in as revenge before running off. This is then followed by Simba chasing her into the forest, leading to them playfully wrestling like when they were cubs and Simba finally managing to beat Nala by pinning her, putting an end to her winning streak against him. The two just chuckle at this series of events before realizing they have fallen in love with each other.

Idiotic Partner Confession: Simba when he questions why Zazu is acting so afraid of the hyenas when he said earlier that they were "slobbery, mangy, stupid poachers". Said hyenas are, of course, right in front of them. It's not completely played straight, since Simba isn't so much an idiot as an innocent child. A second example later on, when Mufasa corners the three Hyenas after they tried to kill Simba. Shenzi and Banzai immediately insist that they had no idea Simba is Mufasa's son; then Ed spills the beans.

Child!Simba, later quoted by Adult!Nala "...MISTER Banana Beak/Pig..." Respectively by Zazu and Pumbaa "What will your mother/she think?" Scar to Child!Simba, then Adult!Nala to Adult!Simba "a king/I can do whatever he/I want(s)" Scar sticks with the puerile misconception of royalty by Child!Simba, though it's doubtful that the latter would let his pride starve to death The hyenas rhetorically question each other about the cub presence in the graveyard scene, Ed concluding with a hysterical laugh. They echo themselves at the end when discussing the fate of Scar, but with a much darker overtone:

Meaningful Name
 The Lion King (1994) / int_6bda9a30
comment
Meaningful Name: Several name can be translated from Swahili (except Ed, Timon, Scar and Mufasa), but it is more or less meaningful for each character: Simba means lion in Swahili and, indeed, Simba is a lion. Scar, who has a very obvious one across the left eye. There may be a heavy background behind this, but it is never detailed in the film. According to The Lion King: Six New Adventures, his Swahili name is Taka, meaning both "garbage" and "want". He certainly wants his brother's kingdom, and being named garbage his whole life might explain his envy of his brother, see below. The origin of Mufasa's name is not certain, either meaning king in manazoto or being a tribute to an ancient kenyan king, but with no proofs for both. Pumbaa means foolish. It's right that he's not especially smart and gets often fooled by Timon, but he has also moments of perspicacity. Rafiki means friend. He looks like to be a precious adviser for the king, and his advices were indeed decisive to resolve Simba's inner conflict. Zazu means movement. Of course, since he is a bird, he moves a lot and fast by flying, but he doesn't look especially restless. Shenzi means barbarous. Tough she is part of a species excluded from the "civilized" Pride Lands because they don't respect its rules, that seems to be true for every hyena. Unless it means she is worse than the other. There is no certainty about the three lionesses: Nala means gift. It can be speculated that's because she is a foreign princess given to the Pride during some diplomatic exchange, but there is no canon indications (although her father is now clearly established to not be Scar or Mufasa). Sarabi means mirage and Sarafina means bright star. Hard to tell without more backstory.

Fisher King
 The Lion King (1994) / int_6c51e9e1
comment
There are quite a number of Christian parallels, which is unsurprising considering lions being associated with God and Jesus for centuries. There's Simba's apparent resurrection—Nala says to him "It's like you're back from the dead" and is informed "The King has returned" in a manner rather reminiscent of Mary Magdalene in the garden with the open tomb, and both Scar and Sarabi think he is his father come back from the dead. There's the Fisher King analogy, with Simba's fight with Scar being easily related to Jesus combating Satan after his Second Coming. There's Simba's anointment by Rafiki, his reluctance to do his father's will, and Mufasa's divine image declaring Simba his son and the true king.

Casting Gag
 The Lion King (1994) / int_6ec4232f
comment
Casting Gag: James Earl Jones and Madge Sinclair played an African king and queen in Coming to America as well. Jones voicing the father of the protagonist also brings to mind his most famous role. Zazu is a royal advisor played by Rowan Atkinson. This was apparently because Tim Rice is a fan of Blackadder. The singing voice for Adult Simba is Joseph Williams, better known as one of the (and still current) lead singers of the band Toto, whose Signature Song is...wait for it..."Africa". Even better, a number of lyrics from the song are rather startlingly relevant to the plot of the film/Simba's emotional arc: "I stopped an old man along the way/Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies/He turned to me as if to say, 'Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you'"; "I know that I must do what's right/As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti/I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become."

Disney Death: Averted. Contrary to Baloo in The Jungle Book (1967) (who simply wanted to know how Bagheera and Mowgli felt about him), Mufasa is quite definitely dead. Also downplayed with Simba in that Scar led everyone at Pride Rock to believe Simba was dead, yet we know otherwise.

The fight between Simba and Scar (rearing up and furiously cuffing each other) is based off of how male lions actually fight, as their manes provide some protection to the neck. The way they only swing one paw at a time is also accurate. Lions will hit with one paw and use the other for balance or support. Tigers use both at the same time.

Bond Villain Stupidity: Scar could have avoided all this trouble if he had just killed Simba himself rather than sending him running off and delegating the killing to the incompetent hyenas, although that would have included the danger of him being seen or found out. More obviously, Scar telling Simba that he killed Mufasa, which gave Simba both the determination and the support of the pride that he needed to win.

At the climax of "I Just Can't Wait to be King" when the tower of animals collapses, it can be interpreted as either Played for Laughs (as a rhino had fallen on top of Zazu) or foreshadowing how Simba's whole self-image is about to come crashing down thanks to Scar's frame-up.

Animated Outtakes: For the Blu-ray release, the animators (though apparently, not the same animators who worked on the film) made a short blooper reel. Most memorably, the "Rafiki drops infant Simba" gag, already overdone in various parodies, was officially done. Many of the outtakes were designed around voice acting errors.

Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Scar during his reign as king. He plainly states "I am the king! I can do whatever I want!" Simba had this attitude as a cub too, though in a much more innocent way. He believed as king he could make or get rid of any rules with nobody to tell him what to do. He mainly wanted to get rid of his betrothal to Nala since neither of them wanted to marry their best friend, and later said he would fire Zazu.

Amusing Injuries: Zazu being launched high into the air by a geyser. It's even called the "Birdie Boiler." Zazu gets by with nary a ruffled feather. Banzai falling into a thorn pit. Shenzi and Ed find it funny enough, with Shenzi even calling him "cactus butt" as he plucks thorns out of himself. Rafiki hitting Simba on the head with his stick. This one's justified as Rafiki didn't want to hurt Simba, just knock some sense into him

Villain Decay: Scar starts out as a Manipulative Bastard that manipulates everybody and actually achieves his goal by usurping the throne. And after that he degrades into a whiny oaf, a terrible leader, and a Manchild, as he acts like an overgrown toddler. Granted, that's the entire point: Scar wants the title and privileges of being king, not the responsibilities, and indeed only becomes a threat again when he's challenged.

Nala easily flips and pins Simba twice as cubs, both of which he started. Especially clear the second time where he is upset that she beat him so easily and tackles her while she's distracted, but when they roll down a hill all she does is laugh while he's panicking and still pins him no problem. Subverted later when they fight evenly as adults.

Good Animals, Evil Animals: The lions and hyenas. With the exception of Scar, the lions are always portrayed as noble and honorable, while the hyenas are portrayed as scummy and subserviant to Scar. However, Timon & Pumbaa implies that Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed settle for neutrality following the movie, and The Lion Guard introduces Jasiri's clan, who claim that Shenzi's clan are the exception rather than the rule when it comes to hyenas.

Ambiguous Time Period
 The Lion King (1994) / int_7eb2bc15
comment
Ambiguous Time Period: Except for minor pop-culture references that may have slipped into the plot, there is no indication of what time the story takes place, at least across the whole current Holocene epoch (or even the very late Pleistocene, since the glaciers never reached Africa). The story does not feature any humans or even reference their presence, only animals in the wild, so there's hardly anything within the setting that could ever became dated. In Hercules, during one short scene, Hercules wears a lion skin that looks exactly like Scar (including the eye scar and the fur color). However, it is rather more a tribute to the film, like Disney films often do to each other. Even within the Disney Canon continuity, there is very little chance the rug is Scar's skin, because he was mauled to death by the hyenas and burned alive, so the skin would have borne marks of this. The total absence of any human activity (even the slightest trail of a share taxi or cattle moves) and additional material suggesting the characters aren't even certain that humans exist, indicates that the film probably takes place at a time before Homo sapiens settlements became widespread in Africa but during which animals such as the Elephant had reached their modern-day stage of evolution, likely mid-Pleistocene epoch. At the very least, the story takes place either before colonialism and African modern period; either in a (not far) future post Humanity's Wake. In the second case, Pridelands Kingdom would be the result of evolution of animals rebuilding a rudimentary civilisation. Further muddying this is the spin-off series Timon & Pumbaa, which itself is a bit ambiguous with its time period, characters traveling around the world and meeting humans of present days, with an episode explicitly featuring Oprah Winfrey Show, whereas another seems to happen during some Ancient Rome Ludi. The whole series being a parody, none of theses indications should be considered canon.

By the time Simba actually comes back to Pride Rock, most of the pride has moved on, there's barely anything left to hunt because of Scar and his hyena Mooks hoarding everything to themselves, and the hyenas themselves are openly discussing revolt, tacitly admitting how much better things were when Mufasa was still alive. Scar himself has become so paranoid that he snaps at anyone even saying the name "Mufasa," and the only reason he's holding onto his power is because he petulantly whines about how "I'm the king! I can do whatever I want!" Simba's return also sees Scar admit that he killed Mufasa, which is the spark that lights the fuse on an open rebellion against him. Scar's last-ditch attempt to throw the hyenas under the bus causes a Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal, and he's Eaten Alive after Simba throws Scar off the top of Pride Rock.

Chew-Out Fake-Out: Subverted. Mufasa really does read Simba the riot act for sneaking to the Elephant Graveyard against his orders, and endangering Nala. When Simba confesses he was trying to be like his dad, Mufasa softens his tone and gives him a lesson that "being brave doesn't mean seeking trouble" and that even kings like him get scared. This leads to them playfully tussling, with Mufasa assuming Simba has learned not to go to the shadow lands again.

Solved by having Simba eating bugs, a Truth in Television since real lions are happy to eat them if necessary. Averted when Nala stalks and nearly kills Pumbaa, but then backs off when she has her reunion with Simba. With no recourse at all, the movie "solves" these troubling issues by Lampshading and then ignoring them, despite Timon and Pumbaa end up in the middle of starving lionesses eventually.

Unfortunately for Simba, this merely causes the hyenas to turn on him and Nala instead, giving him an Oh, Crap! moment when he realises his mistake. Oops, indeed.

Rule of Symbolism
 The Lion King (1994) / int_916c72b3
comment
Rule of Symbolism: There are quite a number of Christian parallels, which is unsurprising considering lions being associated with God and Jesus for centuries. There's Simba's apparent resurrection—Nala says to him "It's like you're back from the dead" and is informed "The King has returned" in a manner rather reminiscent of Mary Magdalene in the garden with the open tomb, and both Scar and Sarabi think he is his father come back from the dead. There's the Fisher King analogy, with Simba's fight with Scar being easily related to Jesus combating Satan after his Second Coming. There's Simba's anointment by Rafiki, his reluctance to do his father's will, and Mufasa's divine image declaring Simba his son and the true king. An example without the religious undertones, but still fraught with portent: the image of Simba's little paw stepping into his father's huge pawprint, that one he will one day fill as king. After much hardship, he does. The directors' commentary highlights it as the image that sums up the plot, to the point the remake used it on the first poster◊. The story of Moses is heavily referenced, in that Simba, the would-be king, is driven into the desert where he spends years trying to forget his past until a God-like apparition appears and tells him to liberate his homeland. Scar is killed by being thrown into a fiery chasm and then eaten by the hyenas he double crossed, akin to someone being thrown into hell and tortured by demons. The directors' commentary says that the drought during Scar's reign is this, quoting "The King restoreth the land!"

Informed Species Although Pumbaa is a warthog, he looks more like a tanned domesticated pig with a mane and tusks. To be fair, he did look like an actual warthog in early concept art. Timon looks almost nothing like an actual meerkat. Timon is peach-yellow when meerkats are sand colored, has upturned ears when they have downturned ears, and a head full of red hair like a human would have. Plus, real meerkats walk on all fours and have black eyes.

Family-Unfriendly Death: Mufasa's death while his son watches, and Simba's repeated pleas for him to "wake up, Dad" while desperately nudging his corpse. The fight between Simba and Scar ends with Scar being eaten alive (or at the very least being mauled to death) by his hyena henchmen (cast in shadow, but still!). The sequel makes it even worse by implying that he might have been burned to death as well.

Foreshadowing: "A king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, Simba, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king." Mufasa's reign ends at sundown following his death; and the sun rises as Simba ascends as the new king. At the climax of "I Just Can't Wait to be King" when the tower of animals collapses, it can be interpreted as either Played for Laughs (as a rhino had fallen on top of Zazu) or foreshadowing how Simba's whole self-image is about to come crashing down thanks to Scar's frame-up.

This Is Gonna Suck
 The Lion King (1994) / int_9dfb8296
comment
This Is Gonna Suck: Mufasa is angry at Simba after needing to save him at the elephant graveyard and says he needs to teach his son a lesson. Simba cowers and hesitates before coming to his father's side. Timon points this out to Pumbaa after realizing Simba is more interested in Nala than them. The hyenas react this way when Simba returns, since they now have a vengeful fully grown cub and their angry boss confronting them about not doing the job properly the first time.

Desert Skull: As Simba returns to the Pridelands, he finds it riddled with wildebeest skeletons to show how Scar's rule has ruined the land. At the end, as Simba returns to power, there's a brief shot of a skull being washed away by the rain, to symbolize the end of the old regime.

Get Out!: After he kills Mufasa, Scar tells Simba to do this, telling him to "run away and never return". Once Simba has run off, Scar sends the hyenas after him. This gets reversed in an Ironic Echo later. Scar tells the hyenas this when they complain that they're hungry, showing how little he really cares about them. He then shortens it to "OUT!" when Banzai says they're still hungry and Scar has done nothing about it.

Odd Name Out: On a grand scale. All members of the main cast have African names (except Scar). (Scar's real name is Taka, which means "trash"). The only one to have a more European sounding name is Ed. He also seems to be, er, mentally challenged. As mentioned in Bilingual Bonus, Banzai's name is also a Japanese word, though it's possible the writers either didn't know, didn't care, or just decided to Throw It In! anyway because most people wouldn't care even if they noticed since the film was set in the African savannah and jungles. Also Timon, whose name is Greek in origin.

More Deadly Than the Male: Simba has never been able to beat his best friend Nala in a fight. He lost to her twice in a row as cubs, and the second time he pounced her when she was distracted. They fight a third time years later as adults and although they are more evenly match, she still pins him the exact same way, flipping him and pinning him down. She snarls down at him and could have possibly killed him before he says her name. Although Simba does eventually get a "win" against her, pinning her after tumbling down a hill together, it is more of a romantic moment between the two than a "fight".

 The Lion King (1994) / int_a4c37cbe
comment
Mood Whiplash: Perhaps most notably when we go from Mufasa and Simba's funeral and Rafiki crossing out Simba's outline to... bowling for buzzards! (the comic relief was badly needed for some after the past few minutes). Just before that, there's Shenzi calling Banzai "cactus butt" right after Mufasa's death. Simba's reunion with Nala in the forest is also noticeable. It starts with a fierce battle between the two with Simba trying to protect Timon and Pumbaa, then the two joyfully recognizing each other and them falling in love by hanging out around the forest in what can be considered a date. Then the two get into an argument immediately afterwards about Simba coming back to become king and Simba storming off in anger, resembling a temporary break up between the two of them. After Simba receives a pep talk from his dead father, he and Rafiki talk about change. Simba admits he's afraid of facing his past. Rafiki then whacks him with a stick; he then uses it as an analogy about how the past can hurt, but you can learn from it. As a result, Simba playfully tosses Rafiki's stick and starts running back to Pride Rock, causing Rafiki to howl in joy.

Dramatic Irony: In the second half of the movie, Scar blames Simba for his father's death, and he thinks his roar started the stampede in the first place, when the audience knows Simba is innocent and Scar set the whole thing up. Also, Scar tricks the Pridelanders into thinking Simba died as well, but the audience knows he's still pretty much alive.

Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!
 The Lion King (1994) / int_acf33d00
comment
Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Young Simba had a massive ego and believed that being King allows one to do anything they want. It is scary to imagine just how easily he could have become a tyrant. By destroying his life, Scar sets in motion the events that proceed to turn Simba into a better person. Some may object that Mufasa would have curbed this trait by teaching him how to rule the kingdom; but it is debatable. One can find the admonition he gives to his son a little too short and light-hearted for the case of a child who nearly died with his friend by going into a place he was explicitly told not to by two people on the very day. In parallel, Sarabi seems careless enough to let the crown prince couple take a stroll under the lone supervision of a small powerless hornbill. Scar is being challenged by Simba's return, but he makes the pride turn against Simba by making him still believe he caused Mufasa's death. As he drives Simba towards the cliff, he decides to give a Just Between You and Me speech in which he tells him what really happened. This helps Simba shake off his guilt, and he gets his Heroic Second Wind against Scar, forcing him to confess his crimes in full view of everyone. Scar does it again in the finale when he hastily tries to save his own skin by shifting all the blame onto the hyenas... within their hearing. This makes the hyenas back off to make him fight Simba alone... and they maul him to death later.

 The Lion King (1994) / int_b06bbf4b
comment
Be Careful What You Wish For: "Oh I just can't wait to be king!". Simba probably forgot that his succession implies his father's death. However, one can argue that Mufasa could have abdicated in his old age. In the context of the film, "to be king" should rather be interpreted as a metaphor of "adulthood". A minor one goes to the hyenas, who despised Mufasa, and eagerly (and blindly) supported Scar's quest to kill him and take over the Pridelands. Before very long, they have hunted everything into nothingness, the herds have abandoned the place entirely, the riverbed has dried up, and the place is very much a wasteland. Growing restless, they constantly confront Scar on the lack of food in the kingdom, and the most Scar does is level blame on either them or the lionesses, forcing the hyenas to question what they signed on for.

Evil Is Burning Hot: Fires set the stage for Simba's final battle with Scar. Also, for some reason there's unexplained volcanic activity right during "Be Prepared".

Coming-of-Age Story: The story follows Simba throughout his childhood and adulthood as he learns who he is and what he is meant to do. It is not until adulthood when he realizes that he must confront his past instead of running from it.

Stargazing Scene: Simba, Timon and Pumbaa spend a night staring at the stars and wondering exactly what they're made of. Timon guesses fireflies, Pumbaa guesses they're "giant balls of gas", and Simba mentions the story he was taught as a cub, that stars are really the ancient kings of the past watching over them, showing how he still hasn't fully moved on from his past.

Just Between You and Me
 The Lion King (1994) / int_b26cc887
comment
Scar is being challenged by Simba's return, but he makes the pride turn against Simba by making him still believe he caused Mufasa's death. As he drives Simba towards the cliff, he decides to give a Just Between You and Me speech in which he tells him what really happened. This helps Simba shake off his guilt, and he gets his Heroic Second Wind against Scar, forcing him to confess his crimes in full view of everyone.

Related to that, when Banzai falls into the thorns, the other two laugh at him. When Banzai starts pulling them out, he spits a few into Ed's face. He doesn't dare spit any at Shenzi - she's his boss (he does snark a Let's See YOU Do Better! at her though, she just keeps laughing).

Epic Fail: Simba's attempts to pin Nala during their argument as cubs. He pounces on her with a roar expecting to easily pin her and win their argument, only to end up being flipped, slammed down and pinned himself, all with a shocked look on his face and Nala teasing him. When she turns away from him and is distracted he pounces on her again to get revenge, only to accidentally send them both tumbling down a hill. Nala laughs the whole way down, enjoying herself, while Simba is seen shocked by this accident and struggles to stay on top of Nala, only to end up getting flipped and pinned again for his efforts, and Nala smugly rubbing her victory in his face.

Was It All a Lie?: Invoked; when Scar cowers before Simba and says the hyenas made him kill Mufasa, Simba doesn't buy it. He growls, "Why should I believe you? Everything you told me was a lie." That includes professing he cared about Simba as a cub, blaming him for his father's death, and calling him a murderer.

Misplaced Vegetation: The when Banzai falls into the thorns and suffers some Amusing Injuries, Shenzi jokingly calls him "cactus butt". There are no traditional-looking cacti in Africa note  Except for those introduced by Europeans., and the plants that hurt Banzai don't look like cacti, so they probably just used this word because "cactus butt" sounds funnier than "thorn butt".

A quick, rather flippant one: While Scar is signing 'Lovely Bunch of Coconuts', he holds up a baboon skull and moves its jaw to the lyrics. While the context is very different from the original play, one can't help but be reminded by the Shakespearian inspiration of the film.

Villain Reveals the Secret: Scar exploits this trope to blame Simba for his father's death. Much to the latter's mother's horror and awe, the young lion publicly admits his crime. It turns out in the following Near-Villain Victory that Simba was innocent in the first place (well, the audience knew that since the first part of the movie).

Character Death: Mufasa really was killed by Scar. And at the end, Scar is eaten alive by his former hench-hyenas. Given Scar's occasional cameos in the questionably-canon Timon and Pumbaa series, some fans think that he survived and is in hiding.

A Nazi by Any Other Name: The song "Be Prepared", in which Scar rallies the Hyenas into setting up a new age in Pride Rock, ruled by Scar and the Hyenas. The Nazi symbolism is quite clear during a sequence when the Hyenas goose step (the most evilest march ever) by Scar. The scene is directly inspired by Triumph of the Will. This makes the song especially chilling if you watch it in either Hebrew or German..

You Are Better Than You Think You Are: The reason why Simba goes into exile is that Scar tells him he is to blame for Mufasa's death. Rafiki shows him that Mufasa is alive — inside of Simba — and his memory makes it clear to Simba that he doesn't blame his son for what happened, but tells him the right thing to do is return to Pride Rock and retake his place. As Simba is still hesitating, Rafiki whacks him with a stick to demonstrate how the past can hurt, but he can learn from it and then confront his demons. Simba decides to toss away Rafiki's stick and return.

Internal Reveal: Scar, engaging in one last bit of Evil Gloating as he thinks he's finally about to kill Simba for good, leans in and finally tells him the truth: "I killed Mufasa!" This turns out to have been a mistake, as it gives Simba a Heroic Second Wind and he immediately pins Scar and forces him to repeat it to the rest of the pride.

Shout-Out
 The Lion King (1994) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: To Hamlet: Scar talks briefly to the skull of a prey in what seems like a shout-out to the famous "Alas poor Yorrick" scene in Hamlet. To In the Heat of the Night: Pumbaa's repeated line of "Are you talking to me?" is reminiscent of Robert De Niro's in Taxi Driver. There's a more subtle one as well: Timon riding Pumbaa out of a desert mirage in a manner very reminiscent of Don Quixote. The method Scar uses to assassinate Mufasa is identical to that which Mowgli used to kill Shere Khan in The Jungle Book. During the song "Be Prepared", two hyenas wave skeletons of creatures, creating shadow images of them "dancing" that imitate the dancing skeletons from "Night on Bald Mountain", right down to the curving, "noodly" movements. A quick, rather flippant one: While Scar is signing 'Lovely Bunch of Coconuts', he holds up a baboon skull and moves its jaw to the lyrics. While the context is very different from the original play, one can't help but be reminded by the Shakespearian inspiration of the film.

Perma-Stubble: All male hyenas have dark patches around their muzzles that look remarkably like stubble. It's one of the few things that distinguish them from the females. In The Lion King 1½, there is another female hyena — you can tell because she has no stubble and a thick tuft of fringe.

Xylophones for Walking Bones: A xylophone can be heard throughout "Be Prepared", but while bones are seen throughout, there aren't any living skeletons. One quick scene does come close, though: two hyenas are playing with some skeletons, pretending to make them dance. There's also a hyena playing the xylophone part on a ribcage.

Toxic Friend Influence: Timon and Pumbaa, while helpful in raising Simba and bringing him out of misery, convince him to ignore his past and responsibilities. Justified in that they didn't know he was the king; when Timon finds out, he wants to know why Simba didn't tell them. He and Pumbaa also come to Pride Rock to help Simba take it back, because he's family.

Dude, Not Funny!: An in-universe variation. Banzai is complaining about his injuries after the hyenas' scuffle with Mufasa, and Ed ticks Banzai off because he won't stop laughing. Related to that, when Banzai falls into the thorns, the other two laugh at him. When Banzai starts pulling them out, he spits a few into Ed's face. He doesn't dare spit any at Shenzi - she's his boss (he does snark a Let's See YOU Do Better! at her though, she just keeps laughing).

Revised Ending

Revised Ending: The original ending to the movie would've had Scar actually throw Simba off Pride Rock at the end of the fight (after Simba tries to save his life). Scar then dies laughing hysterically as the fires surrounding Pride Rock engulf it, burning him to death. Simba survived the fall (ironically meaning Scar throwing him off Pride Rock saved his life) and then meets up with Nala after the fires are put out. This was changed as the filmmakers felt this wouldn't have really brought Scar to justice for his actions.

Villainous Badland, Heroic Arcadia: Scar and the hyenas lurk in the Elephant Graveyard, a grey, rocky wasteland filled with bones and massive skeletons and visible from Pride Rock as a patch of shadow on the horizon. Scar manages to turn the Pride Lands into a second version of this once he takes over — somehow, he's such a terrible ruler that the rain stops falling, the rivers dry up and all the animals leave; the first thing that happens when Simba kicks him out is that the rain starts falling again. A big part of the hyenas' motivation for following Scar to begin with is based on getting access to the Pride Lands and the abundant food there, which they normally can't get because the lions keep them out and their own home base has nothing to eat.

Just Desserts: The ending has a chilling case. When Simba corners Scar, Scar shamefully tries to get Simba's sympathy by by saying it was the hyenas' idea. Unbeknown to him, the hyenas had overheard his attempt to throw them under the bus. After Simba throws him off a cliff, the betrayed hyenas decide to devour him out of spite.

Heroic Second Wind: When Scar has Simba right where he wants him (desperately trying to keep his grip on the ledge of Pride Rock but about to fall off), and he admits that he killed Mufasa (in what he thinks will be a Just Between You and Me moment, before throwing Simba to his death) ... Simba (who relives watching his father being thrown to his death in what could well be his final moments) instead lunges up the rest of the cliff, pinning his evil uncle and forcing him to reveal the truth to the others.

Two-Act Structure: The first half of the movie is about Simba's childhood and Scar's plot to become King. The second half is adult Simba coming to terms with his guilt and grief and deciding to reclaim his throne from Scar. The musical similarly follows this thread by ending Act 1 with Hakuna Matata and the reveal of Adult Simba.

comment
Continuity Snarl: Primarily from the obscure book series The Six New Adventures Of The Lion King, which came out after the first movie, but before Simba's Pride. The series added the character of Simba and Nala's son, a cub named Kopa, some other cub characters to Mufasa's original pride, the story of how Scar got his scar, as well as named Mufasa's parents and grandfather, and Scar before he got his scar. Since Kopa has since been Retconed into Kiara in Simba's Pride, the extent to which Six New Adventures is considered canon is hotly debated amongst some fans, and has resulted in much speculation and headcanon. Also, the animated series gave a different (and fairly moving) version of Timon and Pumbaa meeting than 1½.

Unsportsman Like Gloating: Downplayed with Nala teasing Simba after pinning him as cubs. The first time she beats him she chuckles and playfully teases him "Pinned ya" with a big smile, showing its in good fun. After he pushes her off him though she has a smug victorious smile on her face. After she immediately beats him again after he pounces her again, she smirks down at him and taunts him "pinned ya again" in a more smug and arrogant voice than her previous playful one. Possibly justified as Simba had previous tried to take credit for her ideanote Though it might actually not have been HER idea and he was the one who started both of the fights, but still noticeable as Simba is her best friend and was prince at the time.

Biting-the-Hand Humor: Zazu starts to sing "It's a Small World". Scar freaks out and demands him to sing anything else but that. Even funnier, in the Broadway show, Zazu may sing "Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast or "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from Mary Poppins (two other Disney movies that also became successful Broadway musicals; they have all been "rival" shows at one time or another). In the Las Vegas production, he sings "Viva Las Vegas", and the touring production has, naturally, also used "Let It Go."

A World Half Full: An excellent example given how dark some of the film can be. Simba loses his father and is convinced by his uncle that it was his fault. He goes into exile for a long time but eventually overcomes his guilt after his father's ghost chides him and goes back to tell his uncle to step down and take his place. He ends up triumphing, of course.

Oddball in the Series: In 2017, The Lion King's everlasting fame and success earned it a spot in the Walt Disney Signature Collection, the third line Walt Disney Home Video created for the Animated Canon's most lucrative hand-drawn movies (and the first to release any of those movies, including TLK, on Ultra HD and Disney+). However, it remains the only entry neither supervised by Walt Disney, nor based on a story he made aborted plans to adapt. The press release states that the collection includes films either made or inspired by Walt, subtly turning Bambi's influence on TLK into grounds to include both movies.note Bambi even joined the Signature Collection the same year that TLK did, as it marked Bambi's 75th anniversary.

Glad I Thought of It: Simba calls himself a genius after he and Nala escape Zazu, and Nala points out it was her idea they used. Simba simply says he's the one who pulled it off, but Nala once again claims he did it with her. Pumbaa suggests that they should adopt Simba since "When he grows up, maybe he'll be on our side." Timon first dismisses the idea as stupid, but then presents it as his own.

Villainous Glutton: The hyenas were driven away from the Pride Lands prior to the film both due to the species' apparently innate sadism and because their over-eating habits are capable of throwing off the balance of the circle of life. Once Scar usurps the throne and allows them to hunt freely in his kingdom, it only takes a few years for the lush fields to be replaced by a wasteland, rivers to dry out and prey populations to decay.

An example without the religious undertones, but still fraught with portent: the image of Simba's little paw stepping into his father's huge pawprint, that one he will one day fill as king. After much hardship, he does. The directors' commentary highlights it as the image that sums up the plot, to the point the remake used it on the first poster◊.

Running Gag
 The Lion King (1994) / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: Simba's complete inability to beat Nala in a fight. She beats him twice in a row as cubs, even when he was the first to pounce, and later as adults he gets pinned throw the same trick. It's even given a Continuity Nod in the sequel. The only time Simba ever was able to beat Nala was by complete accident, landing on top of her after tumbling down a hill together and finally pinning her.

Weird Moon: There is a shot at night at Pride Rock where we see the moon and the horns of the crescent extending an average of three-quarters of a circle, essentially rendering Earth smaller than the moon.

Crush Parade: Mufasa saves Simba from this, but gets knocked away. Simba looks on at the stampede in horror, but then Mufasa emerges and climbs up the cliff to meet Scar, who throws him off and sends him falling back down to it.

Platonic Co-Parenting: Timon and Pumbaa practically raise Simba from his early childhood. They also insist on helping him on finding out he needs to fight his uncle to reclaim his kingdom. He turned out pretty well, all things considered!

 The Lion King (1994) / int_fbd285b7
comment
Comically Missing the Point: When Timon comments that Simba looks blue — i.e., depressed — Pumbaa replies that he's more brownish-gold. Timon and Pumbaa's worry-free lifestyle is based on the motto "Hakuna Matata." They may have missed the fine print that said the phrase only tells you not to worry in a given situation- you still need to face your problems. During "Be Prepared", Scar says the hyenas need to be prepared for the death of the king (Mufasa). The hyenas ask if he's sick, then Scar says that they'll kill him and Simba. The hyenas then think that this means that there will be no king (until Scar reminds them that he'll be the king).

Moral Luck
 The Lion King (1994) / int_fe0de947
comment
Moral Luck: Scar uses this trope to trick Simba and later the lionesses into thinking he's morally responsible for his father's death. While the audience knows Scar masterminded the whole thing, Simba is tricked into thinking that his "little roar" in the gorge frightened a nearby heard of wildebeest (which he didn't even know were there) into stampeding, which ended up trampling Mufasa. Scar then leads him to believe that accidentally doing something that unintentionally causes someone else's death is morally the same as intentionally killing them.

Beauty Is Never Tarnished
 The Lion King (1994) / int_fe614133
comment
Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Simba and the lionesses get malnourished from living off of bugs, and lack of prey respectively. None of them are shown with ribs or any other visual indicator of this. The hyenas, while probably not beautiful to most, are also malnourished without showing it. Scar may or may not be also. While he's the king, he probably has first access to what little food they have.

Princeling Rivalry: Mufasa as the strong first born, and Scar as the smart, plotting second born who has been jealous of Mufasa for some time. He doesn't begin his betrayal in earnest until after Mufasa's son is born. Scar murders Mufasa and attempts to kill Simba, Mufasa's child son. Simba lives and leads a charge to defeat Scar in his adult years.

 The Lion King (1994) / int_ffad4e9f
comment
Shown Their Work: Yes, lion cubs can and do eat bugs, and live off them if necessary. (Though it's much more of a stretch to imagine an adult lion living off them). The fight between Simba and Scar (rearing up and furiously cuffing each other) is based off of how male lions actually fight, as their manes provide some protection to the neck. The way they only swing one paw at a time is also accurate. Lions will hit with one paw and use the other for balance or support. Tigers use both at the same time. Shenzi leads Banzai and Ed, as well as some of the other hyenas in the climax. In Real Life, female hyenas sit higher on the pecking order than males do. Zazu briefly mentions elephants getting annoyed at tick birds pecking at them. Contrary to popular belief, tick birds/oxpeckers are thought by many zoologists to actually be parasitic birds that are really after an animals blood (they typically eat ticks that are already bloated with blood, which seems contradictory to their supposed duties as custodians) and even when they do seem to be trying to help, it's clear from their hosts' reactions that they don't appreciate it. Elephants have actually been reported to try and dislodge tick birds, in fact, an occurrence which Zazu may well be referring to.
