** If you have a dirty mind, you can find a whole different interpretation to Banzai's complain about the fact he won't "be able to sit for a week". It could explain why Ed could not stop to laugh.

A plot described by some as ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' and the Malian epic ''Sundiata Keita'', with a few hints of ''Theatre/HenryIV'', with {{Talking Animal}}s. The sequels seem to follow the Shakespearean trend, as ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' is ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' and ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' [[XMeetsY With Talking Animals In Africa]], and ''Disney/TheLionKingOneAndAHalf'' resembles ''Theatre/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'' (a PerspectiveFlip of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', written in the 1960s). It launched the spinoff ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'', which is [[ReverseCerebusSyndrome vastly different in tone and setting]] from the original movie and doesn't appear to have any Shakespearean counterpart. A second television series, ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'', is premiered as part of the Disney Junior lineup in 2015, focused around Simba's son Kion, who gathers a group of animals to protect the Pride Lands from danger. It is an {{Interquel}} that takes place during the TimeSkip of ''Simba's Pride''.

* RealityEnsues: Being king means you have to take care of certain responsibilities. If you don't, you won't last long, as Scar gets despised by ''everybody'' for neglecting those responsibilities. As Mufasa told Simba, "There's more to being King than getting your way all the time."

Being king means you have to take care of certain responsibilities. If you don't, you won't last long, as Scar gets despised by ''everybody'' for neglecting those responsibilities. As Mufasa told Simba, "There's more to being King than getting your way all the time."" ''The Lion Guard'' would later depict Simba's mundane, day-to-day activities as king.
** 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.

* BrokenAesop: 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.

to:

* 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.]]

** Rafiki is a mandrill with a tail of a Baboon and ''living in the savannah instead of in the forest''; Zazu is a red-billed hornbill that is blue instead of brown; Pumbaa is a reddish brown warthog that looks more like a big-headed pig than a warthog; Timon is an always-bipedal meerkat with human-like teeth and that says "Ugh, Carnivores!" even though he belongs to the order Carnivora as well; the Spotted Hyenas (''Crocuta crocuta'') that [[MixAndMatchCritters bear some resemblance]] with Striped Hyenas (''Hyaena hyaena''), with grey hair, large shaggy black manes, black ears and low-hanging head.

* WellDoneSonGuy: 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 [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3gyi8PDhV1rv7iuso1_500.jpg 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 is true to himself and who Mufasa raised him to be, his spirit will be very proud of him indeed.
