* There was originally going to be a naked mole rat in the movie, but it was replace with a [[MisplacedWildlife gopher]] because they were afraid of it turning out too disgusting. Later, Disney would give us ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', where one of the main characters was a naked mole rat... That ''wasn't'' disgusting at all.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Scar]] is defined by [[TheResenter his envy and hatred]] of 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 [[WouldHitAGirl 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 [[EvilGloating mock Simba]] that [[YouKilledMyFather Scar was Mufasa's true murderer]]. Later, in a desperate attempt to save his own skin, [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder he tries to blame everything on his loyal hyena henchmen]], attempting to kill Simba even after he agrees to spare his life. A fratricide and and tyrant, Scar is considered by many to be THE single most '''evil''' villain in the entire Disney canon.

*** Additionally, the dialogue is [[BeamMeUpScotty often shortened to]] "One day, Simba, all these will be yours." Which led to a Creator/MontyPython joke afterwards:
--->[[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail "What, the curtains?"]]\\
[[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail "No, not the curtains, Simba."]]
