* {{Narm}}: When Mufasa is saving Simba from the stampede and a wildebeest bumps into them, knocking Simba out of Mufasa's mouth. The sound effect is just hilarious.

* UnfortunateImplications: As [[http://virtualiansanity.blogspot.com/2011/06/racism-in-lion-king.html this article]] points out, not only is the way the hyenas are segregated into a wasteland and aren't allowed to coexist with the "higher race" (lions) eerily similar to how human minorities were treated during the Jim Crow era, but the movie treats this FantasticRacism in a ''positive light'', which makes it uncomfortable to watch for some.

Thankfully, Disney became aware of this later on, which is why a good hyena, Jasiri, was introduced [[WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard later in the franchise]].

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Scar]] is defined by [[TheResenter his envy and hatred]] of [[CainAndAbel his elder brother Mufasa]]. [[TheEvilPrince Hating that he isn't king]], Scar hatches a scheme to remove Mufasa from the equation as well as the heir to the throne, [[EvilUncle Mufasa's young son Simba]]. When Scar's first [[WouldHurtAChild attempt to murder Simba and his best friend Nala fails]], Scar has his Hyena cohorts cause a stampede and personally throws Mufasa in to be trampled when he tries to escape it. He then convinces Simba the whole thing was his fault, convincing him to go into self imposed exile before ordering the hyenas to murder Simba anyways. Scar's incompetence as king leads to a famine, and when Simba returns, he sees Scar refuse to allow anyone to leave to go anywhere else, uncaring that this will condemn everyone to death. He proceeds to backhand Mufasa's widow Sarabi when she compares him unfavorably to her husband, and when he confronts Simba, Scar tries to break him by bringing up Mufasa's death. He only pauses in his attempt at a public execution to mock Simba that [[YouKilledMyFather he was Mufasa's true murderer]]. Later, in a desperate attempt to save his own skin, [[NeverMyFault he tries to blame everything on his loyal hyena henchmen]], attempting to kill Simba even after the latter agrees to spare his life.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: During the "Hakuna Matata" song, Pumbaa tried to say the word farted during the lyrics before having his mouth covered by Timon so he would not say it in front of the kids. Despite this, everyone knew what Pumbaa was going to say.
