** Also, the ''Disney Animated Storybook'' version of ''The Lion King'' on Windows [[http://www.alexstjohn.com/WP/2013/01/04/the-disnesy-disaster/ had an engine that made use of an]] [[UsefulNotes/ApplicationProgrammingInterface API that was untested with certain graphics drivers, which made it crash in certain PCs]]. ([[http://books.google.com/books?id=ltQ6LYHpmQEC&pg=PT182 directly leading to the creation of DirectX]], as well as the ''{{VideoGame/Doom}} 95'' port to promote it)

** While many think the Adult Simba levels are somewhat easier than the cub levels, everyone agrees that "Be Prepared" is an exercise in frustration. The level is full of GoddamnedBats…including hyenas, cheetahs and literal bats. On top of that, there are lava geysers shooting from the floor, lava dripping from the ceiling and at one point, a river of lava that you have to traverse on a tiny floating rock. Good luck not getting knocked off. Oh, and not to forget that [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking it's the only level in the game that is not based on any scene from the movie]].

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** In the Japanese dub, Creator/MitsuruMiyamoto as adult Simba, before hitting big as [[Anime/TheBigO Roger Smith]]. Oddly enough in the Japanese version of the musical, young Simba is played by no one else than Creator/KenshoOno when he was a kid, before hitting big as both [[Manga/KurokoNoBasuke Tetsuya Kuroko]] and Film/HarryPotter in Japanese.
** In the Mexican Spanish dub, young Nala is voiced by Karla Falcón, before her StarMakingRole of [[WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi Yumi]] and [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Ino Yamanaka]].

* WinTheCrowd: If there was any doubt on how this film would do, the teaser using the "Circle of Life" sequence and the rapturous audience reaction to it settled them all.

** Creator/JamesEarlJones will reprise his role of Mufasa for the live-action reimagining. Of all the actors fans would like to see back, Jones was one of the chief players because he's so damn iconic, and his casting has been warmly received.

* PopularWithFurries: The franchise is one of Disney's biggest fandoms and has a huge following amongst furries. It's gotten to the point where it's often assumed that every lion OC is a ''Lion King'' fan-character.

* PortingDisaster: As above, the [[NoExportForYou Europe-exclusive]] NES port was a port of the Game Boy version. Despite limited colour, it had sluggish and delayed controls. Physics and jumping precision were also non existent in this version. To make things worse, the box cover says ten levels. The game itself only has six, meaning the Adult Simba levels were either glitchy or they didn't bother to program it in.

It's quite telling that when pirate companies made their own NES version, while it was still an ObviousBeta, it was still far superior to the official NES release.

*** The documentary Mickey Mouse Monopoly pointed this out
*** Also, Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed - friends, or family? Another alternate interpretation is who the true leader of the TerribleTrio is. Most tend to believe that it's Shenzi due to the fact that female hyenas are usually the pack leaders. However, some theorize that Ed is the true leader given that Shenzi and Banzai usually turns to Ed last for the final say.

** Sarafina; Nala's mother, could also count. She only has one line of dialogue yet there are fan comics and fanfiction's about her and who her mate is and how she gave birth to Nala and/or Mheetu.

* MoralEventHorizon: Scar when he kills Mufasa. He provides the image for the MoralEventHorizon/AnimatedFilms page. Arguably, he truly crosses it when he tells Simba his father death is because of him, further traumatizing a kid who has just lost his father.

* VillainDecay: Scar suffers this, badly. He starts out as an MagnificentBastard that manipulates everybody and actually achieves his goal by [[TheStarscream usurping the throne]]. And after that he degrades into a whiny oaf, a terrible leader, and a ManChild, as he acts like an overgrown toddler.
