* BrokenAesop:
** As pointed out by countless critics, Rafiki's message: "The past hurts, either run from it, or learn from it." is broken. [[spoiler:Simba ''tries'' to confront his fears, but his fears start to win. Scar again puts the blame on him for causing his fathers' death Simba starts to doubt himself again and the other lions doubt him too. It's only when [[BadassDecay Scar]] has Simba in a situation where he will probably die that he [[NiceJobFixingItVillain 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.]]
** 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.
** Another in-universe, Rafiki teaches Simba that it's okay to make mistakes as long as you learn from them. Simba thus decides to quit running and forgive himself before confronting Scar. Despite Simba's efforts to put his guilt behind him, Scar takes advantage of the fact that Nala, Sarabi, and the other lions still don't know the true circumstances of Mufasa's death to turn them against Simba, which quickly leads to Simba falling prey to his guilt once again. No one rallies behind him until [[TheReveal Scar admits publicly he killed Mufasa]].

* DidntThinkThisThrough: When Zazu is captured by the hyenas and subjected to the birdie boiler, Simba tells them they should PickOnSomeoneTheirOwnSize. Unfortunately for Simba, this merely causes the hyenas to turn on him and Nala instead, giving him an OhCrap moment when he realises his mistake. Oops, indeed.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Zazu and Mufasa are discussing what should be done about Scar; Zazu suggests that he'd make a handsome throw hug. 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.
