** 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 JustBetweenYouAndMe speech in which he tells him what really happened. This helps Simba shake off his guilt, and he gets his HeroicSecondWind against Scar.

** 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 [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxpecker#Diet_and_feeding 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 [[StopHelpingMe 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.

** After smacking Sarabi to the ground for mentioning Mufasa in his presence, Scar notices a very angry looking Simba watching above and returning. Punctuated since he actually thought it was Mufasa himself at first.

** Also, said mooks after realizing why calling Pumbaa a pig wasn't the smartest thing to do.
** Scar, first when Simba [[RightfulKingReturns returns to reclaim his rightful place on the throne]], and later realizing he's about to be [[TheDogBitesBack killed by his former mooks]].
** Oddly this was just after provoking one onto ''them'', giving them a DeathGlare when he realized they hadn't finished Simba off.

Added DiffLines:

* CatsHateWater: During "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" Simba playfully grabs Nala and pulls her into the lake they were drinking from. Nala quickly rises up surprised and quickly gets out, dripping wet and with a shocked look. Downplayed as Simba is just fine in the water, and Nala smirks at him before pushing him back in.


Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: Simba and Nala don't realize that they have literally wrestled right into the Elephant Graveyard until a steam geyser goes off right next to them.


Added DiffLines:

* UnderestimatingBadassery: 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, [[IWasBeatenByAGirl much to his shock and embarrassment]]. After shoving her off him he [[SoreLoser 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.


Added DiffLines:

* UnsportsmanLikeGloating: 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 pouches 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 [[GladIThoughtOfIt tried to take credit for 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.

''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, Musafa, who is the Pride Land's ruler. Simba flees the Pride Lands in shame, but is saved from certain death in the wastelands by [[ThoseTwoGuys two wisecracking animals]] who raise Simba under their responsibility-free philosophy of "HakunaMatata" ("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, whose treacherous rule has been with an iron hand.

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

** 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.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: 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 ''Film/TriumphOfTheWill''. This makes the song especially chilling if you watch it in either Hebrew or German..
