* Many Middle Eastern fables also have the lion as the king of animals, though he's often not a ''good'' king; in several stories he's overconfident, unwise, and easily outsmarted by his viziers, the jackals Kalila and Dimna.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}: Knights of the Magical Light'', Leoric has the ability to shapeshift into a Lion, reflecting his heroic qualities. Also, he is the ruler of New Valarak and is referred to as "Prince Leoric" in one episode.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' most of the cast thought that The Royal Family (is a Canadian cartoon) is visiting the Evergreen Forest. As is a show with anthropomorphic animals the King is represented by a Lion (imagined by Bert as [[spoiler:it turns out it was just a play that Ralph and Melissa were rehearsing).]]

* In ''{{minus}}'', a GreatWhiteHunter shoots a lion. His assistant is sent to check on the animal and comes back with boxing gloves and the lion's request for a proper match. Cue Lion Boxing. [[spoiler: Disagreement of the result led to an all out war between the animal kingdom and human kind, which Minus solved by summoning a giant octopus.]]

* ''Anime/KemonoFriends'': Lion is the leader of a group of Friends on the plains, and is in a constant state of NonLethalWarfare with Moose, who's called "King of the Forests". In reality though, she's actually quite laid-back and reasonable and only pretends to be stern and serious in front of her followers.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' gives us Solgaleo, the cover legendary of ''[[PokemonSunAndMoon Pokemon Sun]]'', a very large, stark white and powerful (and muscular) being whose mane is evocative of a sun's rays, and hailed in Alola as being an emissary of the sun. The fact that it can rip holes leading to parallel universes as well as to [[EldritchLocation Ultra Space]] only adds to its regal awesomeness.

In many Eastern countries, the tiger often takes the role of the king of beasts [[TigerVersusDragon despite having to compete with what Westerners call the "Chinese dragon."]] The tiger is often associated with the Earth (king of earthly beasts) and the dragon is associated with the Heavens (king of mythical beasts). The "Chinese lion", often outside Buddhist temples or homes as a protector of those inside, looks so unusual because lions were long since extinct in China when the Chinese first carved such statues; they have been theorised to be based on a kind of dog. While in some ancient Arab cultures, the Giraffe has received the royal title (this is not so surprising, if you realize that RealLife adult giraffes are very strong animals, almost unharmed by predators). In the Bible (Book of Job) two animals are mentioned as "God's most powerful creatures", the Behemoth and the [[KrakenAndLeviathan Leviathan]]. Some think both are real animals: the first one may be the Hippopotamus, the latter may be either the Nile Crocodile or a large sea creature (Leviathan in modern Hebrew language means "whale"). In DinosaurMedia, TyrannosaurusRex has a similar reputation; its name even means "tyrant lizard king."

While in Another points to the Jade Emperor origin stories of the zodiac of how the tiger became the king of beasts, as it was said that though the lion ruled first, the Jade Emperor disapproved of its tyranny and later bestowed the tiger with its title after showcasing acts of heroism throughout the natural world, with each deed as the black mark upon its head eventually forming the ideogram for king.

* In the ''{{Planescape}}'' campaign, the Beastlands is a wild place where animals rule, so it makes sense the most powerful subspecies of the Guardinals - the dominant species - are the leonals, which resemble lions. (The most powerful of ''them'' is Prince Talisid of the Five Companions, although he isn't technically the ruler of the place, although he's likely the most influential being there other than deities.)
