Hyenas aren't bad animals and lions are more likely to scavenge from them more often than the other way around (no offense to lion fans)
It bothers me when hyenas are painted as 'evil' and lions as 'heroic' just because of a bad animated Disney movie said so.
No animal is exclusively evil, and cheering for lions against hyenas never helps because, both animals are important to our ecosystem.
9/10 lions would beat the hyena in a fight because of it's strength and weight. There's more videos of lions killing hyenas than hyenas killing lions (which is quite rare) - JandS3000
The do have a very strong rivalry.
Not sure if I can say that only lion wins this battle. Many cases have been reported where a hyena has successfully mauled a lion (or lioness). But that's much rare than lions mauling hyenas. - Kiteretsunu
To whoever said that lions scavenge from hyenas, go die a horrible death!

Yes... The real animal is far more important than the abominations known as Shenzi, Banzai and Ed, plus the hyenas from The Lion Guard are awful and shouldn't be appreciated, either.
