Interesting to note that many human cultures have or had a different hierarchical vision about the animal world. Some African people say the lion is the "king" but the elephant is God. In Indian tales the Elephant and the Lion are often portrayed as they are contending their supremacy over all animals. And in Europe before and in some cases after Christianization, it's the bear that is considered the lord of the beasts. The wolf has also had this reputation among other ancient European peoples (ex in pre-Roman Italy). In Muslim traditions, the lion is respected, but it is the giraffe who is the "Queen of the Beasts" (for its elegance).

** Steeljaw, Beast Wars Prowl (The central component of the (toy-only) combiner Magnaboss), [[TransformersCybertron Overhaul]]-into-Leobreaker. Any time an animal theme comes up, expect to see at least one lion.

* ''{{ComicBook/Blacksad}}'': A rather crappy sci-fi movie Blacksad is watching features a lion as a US general (and a bald eagle as the president).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'' has the King of Beasts card, which is naturally a lion. Stat-wise, however, this card's nowhere near as impressive as the hunter legendary King Krush (who is a devilsaur, the fantastic version of a T-Rex). And then in a meta-based DoubleSubversion, neither card is as commonly used or well regarded by the players as the Savannah Highmane - which is another lion-based card.

* The Thousand Sunny in ''Manga/OnePiece''. It was even stated by Iceburg that it'll be the "King of the Beasts" in order to carry the "King of the Pirates" or something like that.
** Not to mention that one of Buggy's crew members is a giant lion.

* There's a ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' card called King of Beasts, [[CaptainObvious astoundingly enough]], it's a lion.
** ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' also has "Behemoth the King of All Animals" who is much more of the humongous or elephant type.
