** Separate from the franchise preference for lions, there's ''Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger'', with "Zyuoh" meaning "Beast King". In their InTheNameOfTheMoon pronouncements, ''all'' of the Zyuohgers proclaim themselves supreme in their animals' respective environments: Zyuoh Eagle is "king of the skies", Zyuoh Shark is "queen of the seas", Zyuoh Lion is "king of the savannah", Zyuoh Elephant is "king of the forest", and Zyuoh Tiger is "queen of the snowfield".

In their InTheNameOfTheMoon pronouncements, ''all'' of the Zyuohgers proclaim themselves supreme in their animals' respective environments: Zyuoh Eagle is "king of the skies", Zyuoh Shark is "queen of the seas", Zyuoh Lion is "king of the savannah", Zyuoh Elephant is "king of the forest", and Zyuoh Tiger is "queen of the snowfield".snowfield", and Zyuoh Gorilla is "king of the jungle". (SixthRanger Zyuoh The World is "king of the world", but his powerset is a mashup of multiple animals so no specific beast is actually given that title.) The true King of Beasts in this case turns out to be Zyuoh ''Whale'', the Red Ranger's SuperMode and "king of the kings".



* The [=KingLeo=] monsters from the ''DragonQuest'' series seemed to be designed with this trope in mind. They have eight limbs.

** Heracles also gets this, as his design seems very reminiscent of one.

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.

* ''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.
