    • Zazu comforting Simba is both this and Heartwarming.
    • Simba tackling Moto.. Too bad it doesn't end well...

    • And last, but most certainly not least, is the summary of the next series, including these golden words: "...Our two favourite heroes make a new friend..." No further explanation needed.

     Series 3 
  • In Hypnotic Glint, Haiba saves the day by infiltrating the hypnotized pride and snatching the diamond away, wrestling Simba before smashing it against the wall, shattering it into a thousand pieces.
  • A few things from The Royal Challenge:
    • Hila in general, as well as the whole concept of a villain having the legal ability to challenge Simba for the throne.

    • Nala calling out Sarabi for her treatment of Simba. When Sarabi points out that Nala might just be lying to cover Simba's tracks, the cub rolls her eyes and responds, "I don't think he would have run away if that was true." She simply walks away after that, her message very clear.

     Series 4 
  • In Drought, Nala rescues Simba from Maji's clutches and engages in a full on Cat Fight with her.
  • In Dig It, Nala goes off to rescue Simba from the camp, despite the numerous risks. Another example would be Nala and Haiba refusing to do anything for Maana, as well as Simba's courage to finally stand up to him.
  • In The Interceptor, we meet The Interceptor. That alone is awesome enough. "I like it!"
  • In Shocker's Revenge, the titular character truly takes charge, even becoming something of a Manipulative Bastard.

  • Quite a few things in Tama's Trouble:
    • Hago's villainy. It's easily one of his best stories, if not his best.
    • How could we possibly forget You're Only Second Rate? Like any Villain Song, it stacks up as not only the highlight of the story, but one of the best moments in the whole series.
    • Tama killing Hago. "Aren't I just a cheeky little monkey?"
  • Quite a lot from Rebirth:
    • Not only is this Scar's comeback story, it's also the only one to feature him and Shocker and Interceptor in the same story. Considering Hago appeared in the two proceeding stories, readers are not lacking in material from him either.
    • Shocker being in charge of both Froggy and Interceptor, as well as the scene of all three laughing evilly.
    • Scar's resurrection. First, Shocker throws Scar's skeleton into a fire before firing lightning bolts into it and chanting African words. Then a massive explosion consumes the landscape, followed by Scar emerging from a red mist in all his glory, letting out his signature Evil Laugh while at it. One can almost imagine "Be Prepared" playing in the background...
    • Scar and Shocker's conversation.
    • Scar unveiling his new powers and barraging Shocker with them.
    • Haiba and Scar being in the same scene is awesome by default. The fact that it's peppered with evil lines from the latter and snarky lines from the former just make it even better.
    • Nala taking charge of the situation and confronting Scar. Too bad he hypnotized her...
    • Scar managing to successfully enslave the entire pride.
    • The cubs joining forces with Shocker and Interceptor to take down Scar.
    • Scar and Shocker battling each other with their powers.
    • Simba casually talking to Scar while Interceptor and Nala grab him, and then run as Shocker electrocutes Scar to death in a spectacular display.
  • A couple things in Everyone Loves Nala:
    • The scenes with Shocker and Interceptor are pure awesomeness.
    • Simba curing Haiba, Sarafina and Shocker, and Interceptor knocking out Shocker.
  • A few things in Clone Wars:
    • Shocker and Interceptor's scenes, just because.
    • The birth of the clones is quite spectacular.
    • The cubs preying on their own weaknesses to defeat the clones.

     Series 5 
  • The Great Food Robbery in The Beginning would count, simply such it's because an ingenious plan on the part of the heroes.
    • Nala and Sarafina's interaction throughout the story.
    • Simba and Haiba crushing the Scavengers with a tree.
    • Simba convincing the Scavengers to devour each other.
    • The heroes moving into Jowai Resort.
  • Aibu as the villain in The Chase.
    • Simba and Nala outwitting Aibu in their first encounter with him.
    • The Roho denouncing Aibu as the lowest lifeform on Earth.
    • The confrontation in the cave, including Aibu insulting the cubs as he makes his escape up the staircase.
    • The creatures eating Aibu before being destroyed by the Roho.
  • Hago's brief role in The Curse of Death.
    • The exciting, perilous journey that takes up most of the story.
    • The Hermit of Hekima makes his debut. Enough said.
  • The King of Dreams returning in One Bad Night. He's even more evil than in his previous appearance...
    • This is Froggy's final story. Seeing The King of Dreams chuck him into the flames is very satisfying.
    • Simba standing up to the King of Dreams and absorbing him.
  • Zazu stopping Sarafina from killing herself in Tojo's Tyranny.
    • Also, this is the final story featuring Hago and Tojo. A strong exit for both.
    • Tama going to confront Tojo.
  • A few things in The Evil Serpent:
    • Nyoka, as a character. Because evil snakes are awesome!
    • Tama taking Tojo's advice and moving on with her life. She even takes a bath, which is an important sign of Character Development on her part.
      • Word of God later confirmed that this signified her giving up her filthy habits for good.
    • Simba and Sarafina resisting Nyoka's temptation.
    • Who can resist this? "Trussst in me, Sssimba. Trussst in me…"
      • As well as the "Ow… my sinusssesss" moment right after that.
    • Simba killing Nyoka. Yes, it does mark Simba's beginnings as a killer, but Nyoka still deserved it.
  • A couple things in The Lost World:
    • Dinosaurs in the TLK universe. Think about it for a moment.
    • Simba, despite his recent evil personality, standing up to The Hunters and telling them right to their faces that what they are doing is wrong. Consider the fact that this is a lion cub against a full-grown lion, a lioness, a tiger and a baboon with magic powers. Also, while Simba murdering the quartet was certainly wrong, there's no question they deserved it.
  • In Haiba's Wish, Haiba finally decides to accept what he has done and try to move on. It's not unlike Simba's realization in the film.
  • In Return to Camp Kazi, Simba finally uses the Uchoyo Diamond on Shauri, ordering him to destroy himself.

How well does it match the trope?
