* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Zazu and Mufasa are discussing what should be done about Scar; Zazu suggests that he'd make a handsome throw rug. Mufasa chastises him, but he continues that you could take him outside and beat him when he got dirty. Mufasa can't help but laugh.

** In {{Disney/Hercules}}, during one short scene, the protagonist wears a lion skin that looks exactly like Scar (including the eye scar and the fur colour). 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 both mauled to death by the hyenas and burned alive, so the skin would have born marks of this.

* AmusingInjuries: Zazu being tackled by Simba, Zazu being launched high into the air by a geyser, and Banzai falling into a thorn pit. All three are notable for the other characters finding them funny as well as the audience: "Cactus butt!"

Mufasa comes to rescue his son, [[spoiler: only to be killed when his treacherous brother Scar pushes him back into the gorge]].

* AwardBaitSong: "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". ("Circle of Life" also earned nominations, but that one is the only that fits the "Award Bait" formula.)
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: There's no physical crown, but the scene in which Simba ascends Pride Rock and finally lets loose with a full-throated lion roar signifies that he has taken his place as King.

* BackstabBackfire: Scar would've won his last fight if he hadn't chosen to tell Simba who was ''really'' responsible for Mufasa's death. And he still might have survived it if he hadn't tried to [[IdiotBall blame everything on the hyenas]] (who were practically his only supporters at that point, and three looked to be sneaking up behind Simba to give Scar aid, backing off when they heard him) before he ended up needing their help.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Pumbaa is generally friendly and well-mannered (apart from his farting), but calling him "pig" is a BerserkButton. Makes sense in this case, as despite his niceness he is still a boar warthog.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Both sides of the final battle display this--on Scar's side, the hyenas prove themselves to be viciously brutal killers. On Simba's side, Rafiki shows that [[BadassGrandpa you shouldn't judge him based on his age]], while [[DeadpanSnarker Timon]], [[{{Gasshole}} Pumbaa]] and [[NoRespectGuy Zazu]] manage to beat up Shenzi and Banzai offscreen.

* ThisCannotBe: "Mufasa? No. You're dead."
** That's subverted; we know Scar's right about that. Earlier in the film, he shoved his brother to his death. He just said that because he mistook Simba for Mufasa until he revealed who he really was to his mother.

** In-universe. Simba's new lesson of "Hakuna Matata, forget your worries" results in him running from his problems and thus shirking his duty as king. It's not that it's ''bad advice,'' per say... just not the greatest philosophy to follow when your tyrannical uncle is sitting on the throne.

*** Justified in that the haunch has been killed some time ago by Scar and the hyenas are tearing the skin off first.

* MetaphoricallyTrue: Almost nothing Scar says to Simba before or after the stampede is ''untrue'', which has the dual effect of covering his ass and appealing to his twisted sense of humor.
