** Scar had lost by that point. He wasn't going to remain in control of the Pride Lands, because Simba came back, had the support of the other lions and thrown Scar off the rock. It doesn't matter who believes Scar or doesn't -- what matters is he tried to save his own skin by throwing his only real allies under the bus. That kind of thing is absolutely going to turn those allies against him.

[[WMG: Why do the Hyenas have a grudge at the end?]]
At the end, I think the Hyenas are wrong to turn on Scar. Okay, he told their common worst enemy that the Hyenas planned the whole thing. But ''so what'' ? It's not like the Hyenas are going to be in ''trouble'' because of that, since 1° Simba didn't believe Scar anyway and 2° assuming he did, it would be a single lion against a friggin' hundred of hyenas. The Hyenas ''know'' Scar is constantly lying to everyone. ''Especially Simba.'' He to dump them, he was ''lying to Simba''. What-do-the-hyenas-CARE if Simba believes they did it? He was their enemy anyway! Scar's blaming it on them isn't going to change anything. What the heck were they thinking ? Especially considering that Scar living would be their best interest, since it would mean them still feeding on the Pride Lands' resources, while they perfectly know that Simba in charge means back to licking old bones in the Elephant Graveyard.

** It's just the way she was designed. I doubt it has any real significance or reason beyond a way to tell her apart from the others.

** He was born in the London Zoo. =P

* Who says they're speaking Swahili? They could be speaking Magic Animal Language, for all we know. But anyway, whatever language they're speaking, it's obvious that the words "Hakuna Matata" (along with some of Rafiki's ramblings) are in some other language that they don't usually speak.

** Maybe he renamed himself "Scar" because he wanted to sound more distinctive. He always felt like his brother got all the attention.

to:

* Scar got overconfident and decided to gloat before the end. This actually worked well with Mufassa ("Long live the king!") and he wasn't expecting that Simba would pull a reversal like that.

to:

* It's a FisherKing scenario. The whole region runs on some sort of Circle of Life magic, and so the ecosystem just naturally falls apart whenever an evil king is in charge. (That, and Scar is just implementing bad policies.)
