At the beginning of the film, she is seen cradling a very young Simba before Rafiki presents him to the crowd of animals gathered at Pride Rock. Later she is seen as Simba rouses his father Mufasa to take him to the top of Pride Rock to show him the kingdom. Her next appearance is when she is snoozing on a rock next to Nala's mother Sarafina as Simba comes running along to tell Nala about the elephant graveyard. Both Simba and Nala plead with Sarabi and Sarafina to allow them to go exploring. The wise Sarabi allows the cubs to explore the Pride Lands on the condition that Zazu accompanies them.
Then she is seen as the lionesses are mourning the deaths of Mufasa and Simba (who is not dead, but exiled by Scar).
She appears again years later as Scar demands that she explain why there is no food. Scar reacts to Sarabi's answer by striking her face and knocking her over. Upon seeing Scar hitting Sarabi, Simba runs to his mother's side. She first mistakes him for Mufasa, but is relieved and happy as she realizes that Simba has returned. She is profoundly aggrieved when Simba is forced by Scar to admit (to his knowledge) that he killed her mate, but is relieved when her son forces Scar to reveal he himself is actually responsible and she joins the battle against the usurper. She is then seen one last time looking on proudly as Simba emerges victorious from his fight with Scar.
Sarabi does not appear in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, due to the death of Madge Sinclair before the film's production began.
Sarafina is the mother of Nala, mother-in-law of Simba, and maternal grandmother of Kiara. She is a minor character and has only one line of dialogue: "Hmm. What do you think, Sarabi?" (In the original uncut theatrical release of the film, Sarafina did claim more lines.) Also, her name is never mentioned in the actual movie. She is voiced by Zoe Leader.
Sarafina is first seen bathing her young daughter Nala as young Simba comes running along to tell her (Nala) about the elephant graveyard. She is seen later mourning the loss of Mufasa and Simba with the other lionesses, and then she is seen years later aiding in the battle against Scar's hyena minions when Simba returns.
Sarafina is said to make another appearance in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. As Kiara is walking down when she is grown, a lioness states, "My, how you've grown." This lioness is voiced by Zoe Leader, but because of her different appearance (most notably her small red eyes and gray fur) and voice, whether or not this is actually Sarafina is disputed.
Kiara is the daughter of Simba and Nala and future queen of the Pride Lands. She is mischievous and adventurous like her father was as a cub. She is voiced by Michelle Horn (cub) and Neve Campbell (adult). Her singing voices are provided by Charity Sanoy (cub), and Liz Callaway (adult). Officially, Kiara is the cub seen at the end of the first movie (see Kopa).
After evading her babysitters Timon and Pumbaa (appointed by her worried father), Kiara wanders across the border between the Pride Lands to the Outlands, a place where a pride of lions still loyal to Scar were exiled. There she meets Kovu, an Outlander cub and the lion chosen to follow in Scar's paw prints. The two initally don't get along because of what they have been taught, but become friends after evading hungry crocodiles.Their time together is cut short as Kovu's mother, Zira, appears and confronts Simba. Zira, still bitter about Scar's defeat and her pride's exile, hates Simba and believes that Scar is the true king. Eventually the two parents take their cubs and leave, the cubs sadly saying goodbye to each other. Rafiki, after wisdom from Mufasa, forms a plan to unite Kiara and Kovu in love.
Simba is upset that Kiara disobeyed him and Kiara expresses dislike at the thought of becoming queen as it's "no fun", to which Simba responds "we are one." Elsewhere, in the Outlands, Zira hatches a plan to have Kovu gain Simba's trust by saving Kiara, after which Kovu will kill Simba when the king grows complacent.
The years pass and Kiara grows into a young adult. On the day of her first hunt, everyone is excited for her. She tells Simba that she wants to hunt on her own without Timon and Pumbaa following her. Despite promising to the contrary, Simba sends them after her anyway. Upon discovering them, Kiara becomes angry and rushes off, determined to do her hunting away from the Pride Lands.
Zira sets her plan in motion as her other cubs Nuka and Vitani set fire to the Pride Lands. Kiara is trapped in the ensuing inferno and is rescued by Kovu. Simba is enraged to see Kovu again but owes the lion a huge debt for saving his daughter's life. Reluctantly, Simba allows Kovu to join the pride. Kovu is forced to sleep outside the cave where he has a conversation with Kiara. The two arrange a hunting lesson after Kovu taunts her hunting abilities at first.
The next morning Kovu prepares to attack Simba but is interrupted by Kiara. Kovu gives Kiara a hunting lesson, but they are distracted by Timon and Pumbaa and run off chasing birds instead. This leads to Kiara teaching Kovu a lesson he has never known: how to have fun. That night, Kiara and Kovu look at the stars, which results in them discussing Scar and Kovu's motives indirectly. He tries to leave when inable to tell her Zira's plot, upsetting Kiara, but Rafiki takes the two young lions to a place called Upendi (the Swahili word for "love").
The morning after, Kovu realizes that he can't kill Simba out of love for Kiara. Before he can tell the pride about Zira's plot, he and Simba are ambushed while out walking. Simba is badly wounded but manages to escape. Kovu's brother, Nuka, is killed as he tries to climb a log dam. Zira blames Kovu and slashes him across the face, giving him an identical scar to Scar's. Kovu flees to the Pride Lands but is exiled by an enraged Simba, believing the ambush to be Kovu's fault. Kiara, distraught, runs off to find Kovu. The two reunite in a desert. Kiara tells Kovu that they should return to ease the tensions between their prides.
A war breaks out between the Pridelanders and the Outlanders. Kovu and Kiara manage to stop it and make the two sides realize that the fighting is pointless. Zira, still loyal to Scar, leaps to attack Simba but is knocked away by Kiara. The two tumble into a gorge. Zira refuses Kiara's aid and falls to her death into the river below, swollen by the damaged log dam from the previous fight.
The two prides, now united, return to Pride Rock. Simba, Nala, Kovu (now effectively Kiara's prince consort) and Kiara roar triumphantly out across the kingdom.
Kovu is the son of Zira and an unknown lion in the fictional Lion King universe. He is also a half-brother of Nuka and Vitani. He was originally intended to be the son of Scar but this was changed as this would make him related to Kiara, Simba's daughter. Instead, he became Scar's adopted son. Scar chose Kovu as the lion to follow in his paw prints and become king of the Pride Lands. Kovu means "scar" in Kiswahili and possibly based off of the name "Kovacs". He is voiced by Ryan O'Donohue (cub) and Jason Marsden (adult). Kovu's singing voice is by Gene Miller.
Kovu is a cub in the part of Simba's pride that has been exiled to the Outlands due to their remaining loyalty to Scar. Zira (Kovu's mother) and her pride's loyalty to Scar do not actually make sense as in the first film, as when Simba returns from his life in the jungle, all the lionesses fight on his side and only the hyenas side with Scar. (Zira is non-existent in the first film as are Kovu, her other two cubs, and the lionesses who will make up her future pride.) He is out with his brother Nuka when Kiara tumbles down from a log and crashes into him. Kovu reacts aggressively at first but soon begins to tease Kiara for being "daddy's little girl". As the two wander to a body of water they are attacked by crocodiles. The cubs evade the crocodiles and began to play, but are interrupted by Zira and Simba. The two confront each other, before picking up their cubs and leaving.
Later, Zira yells at Kovu for being friendly towards a Pridelander. Kovu says that he thought that he and Kiara could become friends. Zira forms a plan to get Kovu into the Pride Lands and kill Simba when he has gained enough trust through her son befriending Kiara. Meanwhile, Simba tells Kiara that they are "one."
Zira trains and conditions Kovu until he is grown. She sends him out to kill Simba along with Vitani and Nuka, who start a fire while Kiara is out on her first hunt. When the fire has taken hold, Zira sends Kovu out into the fire to rescue Kiara. Kovu manages to save an at first defensivie Kiara, who later is quite happy to see him again. He is then confronted by an angered Simba who reluctantly allows Kovu to join the pride.
Kovu makes fun of Kiara's amateur hunting skills at first, but later agrees to help her.
That night, Kovu appears in Simba's climatic nightmare. Simba attempts to help Mufasa from the gorge in which he died in the first film. Scar appears on the ledge, mocking and cackling at Simba's inability to help his father. After Mufasa falls Scar morphs into Kovu, who still had the scar and ironically would receive one later. He kills Simba, and Simba wakes. The next day, Kovu prepares to attack Simba while Simba is alone and drinking from the water hole, but Kiara interrupts him to begin the hunting lesson. The pair soon stumble upon Timon and Pumbaa who are trying to chase some birds away from their favourite feeding site. The two lions roar, scattering the birds. They all chase the birds until angering a clash of rhinoceroses. In escaping from the rhinos, Kovu and Kiara accidentally kiss.
That night Kovu and Kiara lie under stars and look at star formations. This leads them to offhandedly start talking about Kovu's past. Kiara starts to nuzzle him solacingly when he expresses his fear of becoming like Scar, but Kovu leaves when he is unable to tell her his true intentions. Rafiki intervenes and takes them to a place called Upendi, which means "love" in Swahili.
As they venture back to Pride Rock, Kovu has Simba on his own. Now seeing a better life with Kiara in the Pride Lands, he refuses to attack Kiara's father. Vitani waits for Kovu to attack, and reports back to an angry Zira when he doesn't.
The next morning, Kovu resolves to confess to Kiara his true reasons for coming to the Pride Lands and he has abandoned the plot. However, before Kovu can do so, Simba takes Kovu out for a walk through the fire-ravaged Pride Lands. As they walk, they discuss the true nature of Scar, but they are ambushed by Zira and the Outlanders. Zira congratulates Kovu, but Kovu panics as he realizes he inadvertently completed the plot he abandoned. Kovu attempts to save Simba, but Vitani knocks him into a rock, rendering him unconscious.
Simba is attacked and falls into a gorge where a log dam is holding back the river. Simba climbs the log dam to safety and Kovu has a chance to attack him, but doesn't. Nuka, wanting to impress Zira, climbs the log dam and manages to grab Simba's ankle, but is killed when some logs dislodge and crush him. Zira blames Nuka's death on Kovu and slashes him across the face, giving Kovu a scar resembling Scar's. As Zira demands to her son to admit his responsibility for killing his brother, Kovu stands up to his mother for the first time and runs back to the Pride Lands, where he is promptly exiled by Simba.
Kiara, distraught, runs away to find Kovu. The two meet in a desert and proclaim their love that transcends their pride's rivalry. Kovu wishes to run away with Kiara to start their own pride. Kiara refuses, saying that they must return to try and unite their divided prides. They both run back to the Pride Lands, crossing the log dam that has now been weakened, only to find their prides both at war. Kovu and Kiara stop the fight, but Zira leaps at Simba. Kiara knocks her aside and the two tumble into a gorge where Zira refuses to take Kiara's paw and falls into the river and drowns.
The now united prides return to Pride Rock where Kovu and Kiara are married with him becoming her prince consort. With order restored, Simba, Nala, Kiara and Kovu roar out across the kingdom while the spirit of Mufasa praises his son for his wisdom.
Zira is the main antagonist of The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. She is voiced by Suzanne Pleshette. Zira is Scar's mate, and is extremely loyal to him. She bore three cubs: Nuka, Vitani, and Kovu. Zira mentions that Kovu was the last born before they were exiled, but his father's identity is unknown. She may possibly be Simba's aunt if Nuka is Scar's son, with Scar being Simba's uncle. Zira means "hate" in Swahili.
Kovu becomes affectionate with Simba's daughter Kiara after the two cubs escape from crocodiles on the Outland borders. Simba and Zira clash over this, but the two leave without fighting. Zira plots to train Kovu so he can easily kill Simba at the right moment (the "My Lullaby" song scene). Kovu was to save Kiara from a fire (of Nuka and Vitani's own making) so he could get closer to her and in turn, Simba. Then, when Simba was alone, Kovu would kill him.
The plan starts well, but Kiara and Kovu fall in love, which causes Zira to plan an ambush on Simba and Kovu while the two lions are out walking. Simba falls into a gorge during the ensuing fight, but escapes via a log dam piled up against one end of the gorge. The logs fall and crush Nuka, killing him. Zira pauses to mourn her son's demise, but quickly takes out her anger on Kovu, giving him a scar identical to Scar's. Kovu, defiant for the first time, flees for the Pride Lands as Zira declares war on Simba.
Zira rallies her lionesses and they travel to the Pride Lands for the final battle. At the battle's climax, Simba and Zira are about to fight each other when Kiara and Kovu intervene and stop the battle before it can begin, convincing the Outlanders and the Pridelanders that "they are one." Vitani is the first to realize this and switch sides. Zira threatens to kill Vitani if she doesn't come back, disgusting the other lionesses, who subsequently abandon her.
Enraged, Zira charges at Simba, stating that "this is for you, Scar." Kiara leaps into Zira's path, causing Zira to knock Kiara and herself off the edge of a nearby cliff, sending them both tumbling into the gorge. Kiara lands safely on a ledge, but Zira slides off the edge and hangs precariously onto it. Kiara makes an attempt to rescue Zira, but Zira swipes at her, rejecting help. Zira, having rejected aid, slips and falls into the river below and drowns.
Nuka is the eldest (and slightly neurotic) son of Zira and Scar and half-brother to Kovu. He has dark fur like Scar and Kovu and has a black scruffy mane. His voice was provided by Andy Dick. Nuka means "smell" or "stink" in Swahili.
He constantly tries to please his mother and is very jealous of Kovu's position as Scar's heir. It was Scar's dying wish that Kovu be the next king despite the fact that Nuka should have been the rightful heir. Nuka carries out what Zira commands along with his sister Vitani. He eventually dies after being crushed to death by some logs while pursuing Simba up a log dam in an attempt to get Zira's attention. Zira pushes away some logs and is kind to Nuka the first time in the movie before he dies. Zira blames Kovu for Nuka's death and slashes Kovu across the face, leaving him with a facial wound identical to Scar's. Before his death, Nuka serves primarily as a comic relief character. An example is when he and Vitani were supposed to light a fire in Kiara's hunting area; he accidentally surrounds himself with fire. Like Scar, Nuka is jealous of his brother like Scar was with Mufasa.
Vitani is the daughter of Zira and Scar, the sister to Nuka and Kovu. She was originally named Shetani, but since the word means "she-demon" in Kiswahili, her name was changed to "Vitani". "Vita" means "war" in Swahili, so it is suggested that her name is a portmanteau meaning "demon of war". However, during the fight scene at the end of the film, Nala appears to say "Shetani" rather than "Vitani", pointing out the potential that the name was changed after production had already begun.
Vitani has a somewhat minor role in the film. Near the beginning, she and Nuka have a brief conversation about Kovu, and a little later she participates in Zira's song "My Lullaby". As an adult, Vitani is sent with Nuka to light a fire in the savannah so Kovu can save Simba's daughter Kiara and get close enough to Simba to assassinate him. This is part of Zira's plot for Kovu to infiltrate Simba's pride. Later on Vitani discovers that Kovu no longer wishes to assassinate Simba and reports this to Zira. Vitani bears a close resemblance to Zira as an adult having her light colored fur. She constantly argues with Nuka, though she is upset when he dies. Vitani is also considered Zira's "right hand girl." She acts as a spy for her, and she also sticks close to Zira at all times, except at the end, in which she defies Zira and goes to Simba's side.
During the battle between the Outlanders and Pridelanders, when Kiara reminds Simba that they "are one", Vitani is the first of the Outlanders to realize that the fighting is pointless and that the Outlanders must attempt to become accepted by the Pridelanders and prove themselves worthy of forgiveness to survive. As a result, she is the first to cross over to Simba's side and defend his cause. Furthermore, when Zira then threatens Vitani for her defection, that act backfires into disgusting the other Outlanders enough to desert her entirely. Vitani is voiced by Lacey Chabert as a cub and by Jennifer Lien as an adult.
Ma is one of the main characters in The Lion King 1½. She is voiced by The Simpsons alumnus, comedienne Julie Kavner. She first appears in the beginning as Timon's sympathetic and encouraging mother. She appears to be the leader of her colony. It is she who convinces Uncle Max to give Timon a job as a sentry. However, Timon daydreams while on duty and accidentally lets the hyenas Shenzi, Banzai and Ed past his sentry post and endangers the colony. Believing that he doesn't belong in the colony, despite his mother's encouraging words, Timon leaves to find a place where he belongs.
Later on in the film, Ma meets Rafiki and learns that Timon has gone to find the ultimate paradise. She goes searching for him but is unsuccessful. Meanwhile, Timon makes friends with the warthog Pumbaa, discovers a jungle paradise and also encounters an exiled Simba.
Many years later, Timon re-encounters his mother and Uncle Max at Pride Rock for the first time since he left the colony, right before Simba's battle for the throne. Together, they help Simba in his battle against Scar by digging a long tunnel underneath the hyenas (including Shenzi, Banzai and Ed), successfully trapping them. After Simba gains his rightful place as king of the Pride Lands, Timon takes them and the entire meerkat colony to his jungle paradise he and Pumbaa discovered and they live peacefully.
Uncle Max is a prominent member of the meerkat colony and relative of Ma and her son Timon. He is a pessimist by nature. At the beginning of the film he informs the audience and reminds Timon of a meerkat's status in society by stating "We're food for other animals! Feared by nothing and eaten by all!". He later states that Mufasa's line from the first film ("When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass") does not apply to meerkats, as they are "grass-intolerant". Max reluctantly agrees to let Timon be the sentry for the colony, and is nearly eaten by the hyenas when they attack. The meerkats blame Timon, and Max is angry with him as well. Max appears again towards the end of the film, where he and Ma encounter Timon and Pumbaa at Pride Rock. He seems to be the only character to criticise Timon for wearing his grass skirt and flower in his hair from when he distracted the hyenas by dancing the hula. He is voiced by Seinfeld alumnus, Jerry Stiller.
Kopa, introduced in The Lion King: Six New Adventures, was the cub of Simba and Nala who appeared at the end of The Lion King, but he is seemingly non-existent in the sequel The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, where Kiara is Simba and Nala's only child. To date, there has been no official explanation of this. In Six New Adventures, Kopa is featured prominently in Vulture Shock. He also had minor roles in other books of the set. According to the illustrations, he looks almost exactly like Simba as a cub, except for a small tuft of brown fur on his head. He is described as loving to hear stories. In Vulture Shock, Kopa wishes to find his family tree, something he believes to be a real, living tree. Simba is busy and declines to help him find it, so Kopa heads out alone and finds himself in a strange, barren land where he is kidnapped to ransom by two hungry vultures wishing for some larger prey. Kopa is imprisoned at the top of a tree, but is comforted and befriended by a rapping group of vultures calling themselves the Buzzard Boyz. The Buzzard Boyz eventually lead Simba and Nala to Kopa, and Kopa is rescued.
In A Tale of Two Brothers, Rafiki tells the backstory of Mufasa and Scar to Kopa, and teaches him that he shouldn't be jealous of others. In How True, Zazu?, Zazu tells Kopa about his life when he was young and how he became the King's majordomo.
It is sometimes believed that Kopa is the cub at the end of the first movie, due to the fact that it doesn't resemble Kiara, who is presented at the beginning of the second movie. Although Disney has stated that the cub was, in fact, Kiara, numerous fans theorise that Kopa ran away or was killed by Zira (resulting in her previously unexplained exile), and also resulting in Simba's extreme over-protectiveness of Kiara.
Ahadi loved both of his sons, but chose Mufasa to be king, which upset Taka. In A Tale of Two Brothers, part of The Lion King: Six New Adventures, Ahadi saves Rafiki (who had just arrived in the Pride Lands) from the hyenas Shenzi, Banzai and Ed. Ahadi had an agreement with the hyenas earlier that if they don't harm the other animals of the Pride Lands, he would spare their lives. Later on, Ahadi breaks his promise to Taka of going hunting with him, in order to solve the drought problems in the Pride Lands instead. Filled with fury, Taka, with the advice of Shenzi, Banzai and Ed, devises a plan to make Mufasa look bad by calling him to reason with the selfish Cape Buffalo, Boma. Boma is angered by this and attacks Mufasa. Mufasa is able to escape but Taka is surrounded by the raging buffaloes. Ahadi comes to the rescue and saves his son, but Taka gains a deep wound on his left eye that leaves a permanent scar. Taka then asked to be called Scar from then on, only as a reminder of his own foolishness.
Mohatu was introduced in the children's book and audio cassette set The Lion King: The Brightest Star, a spin-off book from Disney's popular 1994 animated film The Lion King. He is the grandfather of Mufasa and Scar and the great-grandfather of Simba. It is not stated whether he is the father of Ahadi or Uru.
In the book, Mohatu is described as a wise and gentle king by Mufasa as he tells Simba about the things Mohatu did.
Mohatu was the ruler during a terrible drought that had gripped the Pride Lands. Mohatu made a law about how much each animal could drink. Lions were to go the water hole last, as they could survive a relatively long time without water. This worked well until a selfish lion drank more than he was allowed. Mohatu, outraged at this, set off to find a new water hole that the animals could share.
After a while he came to a large river where he found a crocodile sobbing. The crocodile was lonely and wanted some friends, but the other animals were afraid of him, because he once bit Hippo's tail. Mohatu said he would help the crocodile gain the trust of the other animals again. As Mohatu left the river, he bumped into a hippopotamus. Hippo said that she did not go to the river because he was scared of Crocodile. Mohatu walked further until he came to a wildebeest. The Wildebeest did not go to the river because he was scared of Hippo. Mohatu then came across a zebra. Zebra did not go to the river because Wildebeest did not go.
After Mohatu returned to the Pride Lands, he realized that of all the animals needed to trust each other so that they could all use the Great River. He then made the animals help one another, and soon all the animals became good friends and shared the water peacefully. The drought problem was solved.
Many years passed by under Mohatu's kind and gentle rule until Mohatu's death one winter's eve. The animals grieved heavily and began fighting again. Just as they thought that there would never be peace again, a mysterious star appeared in the sky. The star was bigger and brighter than any other star. It filled the animals with peace and harmony and the fighting ceased, as they knew that the star was the spirit of their king.
Uru is a character that was introduced in the children's book set The Lion King: Six New Adventures, a collection of spin-off stories from Disney's popular 1994 animated film The Lion King. Uru was King Ahadi's Queen, the mother of Mufasa and Scar and the grandmother of Simba.
In the book A Tale of Two Brothers, it is mentioned that she went to search for a new source for water, because the Pride Lands were suffering a terrible drought. She is never seen in any of the illustrations nor described in the text, so it is unclear what she looks like. She is usually depicted as having the same fur color as Scar in fan art.
Tojo is a character who first appeared in a Norwegian The Lion King comic called De Foreldreløse Fuglene ('The Orphan Birds'). He is introduced as one of the other cubs during Mufasa's reign, and is a friend of Simba's. His parentage is unknown. Tojo has multiple meanings in Swahili, the most common being 'cut' or 'incision'. Tojo is the only male lion in the The Lion King universe so far to have blue eyes.
In the comic, Mufasa is telling a small group of cubs about the "Great Spirit" and about how he rules the lions' lives with wisdom. Tojo questions this as he injures himself quite often. He complains because he has sprained his leg and needs to rest, which he finds boring. Simba tells him that there must be a reason for the Great Spirit wanting Tojo to stay home. Simba goes off by himself and comes across a bird nest. The eggs hatch while he is there. Zazu tells Simba that he has been watching the nest for a while and that the mother is gone. Zazu tells Simba that Simba is the birds' new mother. Simba doesn't enjoy his new motherly duties, such as feeding the chicks worms via his mouth. He asks Mufasa if the Great Spirit will look after the birds instead, but Mufasa explains that the Great Spirit bestowed this duty upon Simba.
The birds grow and begin to follow Simba around. Simba realizes that he must now teach the birds to fly. He jumps off a rock and flaps his arms, but crashes into the ground. The birds copy this example and meet the same fate. Tojo suggests that Simba should make some wings out of branches. Eventually, Tojo uses the "wings" himself. He finds looking after the birds fun as he has nothing else to do but sit around and rest, so he agrees to look after the birds while Simba goes for a walk with his father. When Simba returns, the birds have adopted Tojo as their new father, and Mufasa says that this was the reason why the Great Spirit wanted Tojo to stay home.
Malka is a character who first appeared in a The Lion King comic called Simba's New Brother. He is introduced as a cub from another pride during Mufasa's reign. His mother appears briefly at the end of the comic, but is not named. Malka is distinctive as he is the only cub in The Lion King universe to have black tufts of fur on the tips of his ears.
In the comic, Malka appears at Pride Rock after getting lost. He meets Simba and Nala first, and disgusts Simba as Malka compliments Nala. Suddenly, Malka sees two hyenas stealing food, and manages to alert the lionesses to the problem. Mufasa compliments Malka's bravery, but Simba is irritated at what he perceives as Malka showing off. Mufasa and Sarabi agree that Malka can stay with the pride until Malka's pride is found, even if it means that Malka stays forever. Simba is annoyed.
Simba, wanting to get rid of Malka, takes the cub out into a small rocky crevice and leaves him there. As Simba leaves, he hears Malka crying and rushes back to him, only to find that Malka is just scared of being alone and isn't really as brave and clever as the other lions think he is. Simba realizes that Malka isn't so bad. The two cubs start walking back to Pride Rock but are confronted by the hyenas that were stealing food earlier. The hyenas give chase, but Simba and Malka dive under a tree root and evade the hyenas.
When they arrive back to Pride Rock, Zazu has found Malka's mother, who takes Malka home. Simba says that Malka can come back and visit any time, with Malka remarking that Zazu should come and pick him up next time.
Note: The characters and events portrayed in The Lion King's Timon and Pumbaa are not considered to be canon.
