** To be fair, the "accepting responsibility" angle was imposed on the film relatively late in pre-production via ExecutiveMeddling, and (in some versions of Kimba/Jungle Emperor) Kimba's son Rune had a similar character arc complete with a self-imposed exile ending in [[spoiler: Rune also returning to inherit his kingdom upon his father's death and seeing an apparition of his father in the clouds]]. And if you take the first part of Kimba, include that element as well as removing the humans to focus entirely on the RightfulKingReturns part of the plot; do the necessary changes that compressing it into a 88 min. movie would require (like merging the flamboyant, [[spoiler: ex-Nazi]], father-killing Hamegg/Viper, who sent the main character into exile and [[spoiler: was defeated and forgiven by him just to end up mauled by another villain]], with the dark-furred, black-maned, tyrannical usurper Bubu/Claw, who has a group of Hyena comic-relief henchmen and a scar over his left eye, into Scar, and giving Kenichi/Roger and his uncle's roles to the comedic animal sidekicks, creating Timon and Pumbaa) and what you'd end with would be pretty close to the Lion King.

Added DiffLines:

** Rune in the sequel dub. He's neither as physically adept nor as brave as his sister Ruki, and Leo is absolutely awful to him.

Added DiffLines:

** Poor, poor Snowene/Eliza. First she watches her mate die right in front of her, after being captured and used as bait to lure him in. Then she's forced to send her son away, knowing the ship they're on is about to sink in a storm. Then she drowns.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: Kimba/Leo in the sequel series, at least where Rune is concerned. Leo pushes him hard and routinely shames his efforts -- eventually abandoning him in the cliffs far from home and forcing him to make it back himself.

*** And THAT has lead to fans of ''The Lion King'' hating ''Kimba'' because of ''Kimba'''s FanDumb. It's the circle of [[FandomRivalry haaaaaaaaaaate]]!

* FanDumb: The [[VocalMinority rabid segment]] of the fandom who [[{{Hatedom}} hates]] ''Disney/TheLionKing'' for [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks ripping off Kimba]] is far more successful at driving people away from Kimba than they are at winning them over. It doesn't help that TLK and Kimba have different narratives.
