- Ensemble Dark Horse: Jake, the messy little fox kit.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Hoot is a female hyena who is one of the good characters and friends with a lion, in contrast to the usual portrayal of hyenas in media and the animosity between lions and hyenas in real life. 4 years later, The Lion Guard introduced another such hyena.
- Sequelitis: Being aimed at much younger children, the series suffers heavily from this, lacking the Parental Bonuses and dramatic storytelling of the original series, with many adult viewers thinking it Tastes Like Diabetes.
