Top 10 Best Lion Guard Characters

The Top Ten
1 Kion Kion is the main protagonist of the 2016 Disney Junior The Lion King spin-off series "The Lion Guard". He is a lion cub who is the youngest child of Simba and Nala and is the younger brother of Kiara. He is the leader and fiercest member of the Lion Guard as well as prince of the Pride Lands. He is ...read more.

2nd best character in lion guard! I don't get how Kion gets so much hate! He's a great leader, he's kind, he's strong, he's brave, he's fast, and he didn't even need to go through character development in Season 3 because he was already fully developed! Other then becoming mates with Rani, I agree with all the decision's he's made, especially since some of them were so hard and he had to make them all by himself. I mean, sometimes he got help from Mufasa but it always Kion who made the final decision! Kion is so amazing! I love him and his character! I like him more in Season 3 then I do in Seasons 1 and 2, but that's just because I kind of enjoyed seeing him lose his temper (I have some weird love for the villains, don't judge me) and I ship Kiuli with all my heart! Kion is so amazing!

He is so strong, mature, wise and responsible as well as compassionate, always giving the bad characters a chance to change - all qualities of a good and righteous leader.

A great leader and friend. If I was a lion, I would totes be in love with him. He's a great person, and fan fictions need to stop demonizing him. My number 9.

I apologize to the one who made this list, but I seriously cannot stand The Lion Guard. It is a bad show and it is not doing any good at all.

2 Fuli Fuli is the tritagonist of the 2016 Disney Junior The Lion King spin-off series "The Lion Guard". She is a young cheetah who is one of Kion's friends and serves as the fastest member of the Lion Guard and is the only and first female to join. She is voiced by Diamond White. She has been described as ...read more.

3d best character in the show! I really like Fuli. In Season 1 and 2 she was kind of mean to Bunga and she was a little bit of a jerk, but come Season 3 she was just protective of her friends and loved ones and she was actually a very interesting character. I ship Kiuli so much, so I completely understand her anger with Rani all the time. I don't hate Rani by any means, but that doesn't mean I ship Kirani either. Anyways, no one cares about what I ship and don't ship so I'll say more about why I love Fuli. She's a sassy badass and I love her for that as well as for her development and protectiveness. And even when Kion lost his temper and almost killed her, Fuli still forgave him and loved him. She might seem feisty and tough on the outside, but on the inside she's just a sweetheart. I love Fuli!

I love Fuli so much, she is my favorite out of all of the Lion Guard members. The reason? Because she is the ONLY ONE that shows any character growth. While Beshte and Ono were already pretty mature and neither Kion or Bunga change in any way by the end of the series, Fuli matures and actually becomes a better leader than Kion by the end of the series. When I first watched the Lion Guard, she was the only guard character I was drawn to from the start. All the other Lion Guard members I found annoying at first, but Fuli was different for some reason. Probably because she was always as annoyed with Bunga as I was. She has the "sarcastic girl" vibe in the first season that I love (most of the time), and generally got a lot of the more enjoyable episodes. In Rise of Scar, you start to see a change. She starts to show traits of leadership, improvising a plan to get Kiara away from the hyenas when Kion's original plan doesn't work, and reassuring Kion at a few points in the movie. She's ...more

In my opinion I think Fuli is a much better character over season 3, in season 1 and return of the roar she was pretty much an annoying jerk, she was always rude to Bunga and some other animals I don't know but that's my opinion, she was a bit better in season 2 and in season 3 she is so mature I love the way she talked to kion when he had problems and realised something about relationships. So I think fuli is a great character okay in season 1 and 2 but much better in season 3, I mean she was fine in season 1 she was at her best in some episode and in the rest she was just annoying.

I don't know why I like her character so much, I just do. It could partly be because she is adorable or how sarcastic she is. It could be because of how good of a leader she was in season 3. Probably a combination of these things.

3 Jasiri Jasiri is a spotted hyena cub who appears in the Disney Junior show "The Lion Guard". She is an ally to the Lion Guard and is the closest to Kion. She helped him fight Janja and his clan and the guard against the Outsiders. She is voiced by Maia Mitchell. She has been described as "friendly", "spunky", ...read more.

6th best character in the show! I love Jasiri so much! When she was first introduced I didn't really like her because she was mean to Kion, but after "Sisi Ni Sawa" and after she helped get Kion out of the Outlands I loved her! And by Season 3 she had made her way onto My Top 10 List! She's a pretty underrated character though. I mean, sure she's only in like 10 episodes but she was introduced in the 3d episode of Season 1 so she's been in the show long enough to become loved by me and probably lot's of other people as well. She's also (Next to Madoa and Wema but they aren't really major characters in the show by any means) the only female hyena. I love Jasiri!

This girl is everything you want to be. Smart, but optimistic. Brave, but kind. A strong fighter, but feminine through her nurturing and flirty side. She's not a reckless fighter, but a tactical one. My number 3!

There isn't really much to Jasiri, just an awesome character that challenges the ridiculous biases the spoiled Pridelanders have, but gosh do I love her. She's my favorite character in all of the Lion Guard, and she very much deserved to be the Queen of the Outlands. Also, she's absolutely adorable. I love how she is designed to look like a lion to drive home the point about her and Kion being like water and rain, and when Kion's mane grows out more in the third season, the resemblance is even more clear. I also love how confidant she is. The only reason she lost the fights against Janja and his Clan is because she got taken by surprise, and she never really "lost" the fight in Never Judge a Hyena by its Spots, Kion just came and helped her when she appeared to be losing.

"Sisi Ni Sawa" is WAY more catchy than "Hakuna Matata" for me! In my opinion, I rather have her as the bravest instead of Bunga. (I'm sorry.) When I first saw her, I was like "ugh she's so annoying" but then she started helping Kion, and she started singing about not judging a book by its cover, she is also pretty fierce considering she is only a hynea cub. Her features are shockinly beautiful, and her personailty is pretty. She is my favorite character on the show. My only problem is that, I wish she appeared more on the show because I love her so much!

4 Bunga Bunga is the honey badger deuteragonist of the 2016 Disney Junior show "The Lion Guard". He is Kion's best friend and is the bravest member of the Lion Guard. He is voiced by Joshua Rush. He is the adoptive nephew of Timon and Pumbaa. Bunga has been described as "bold", "jocular", and "reckless".

Bunga isn't my all time favourite by any means, he's only 10th on my list, but he still deserves some recognition. I know lots of people hate him because he's annoying, but for me he's like Thurston and Makini. He's so stupid he's funny and I love him for it. He's also a really great friend to Kion (Other than in Season 3 he's kind of a jerk) and I like that. I love Bunga!

Now when Kion can't control the roar, this character always try to make kion worse at least till kion is healed, but Bunga is a good member of the lion guard

I love the Lion Guard and the Lion King a lot. It's one of my new favorite series. I don't hate any of the characters, even Bunga. There's just nothing to hate. It's a great series. I love all the characters including Bunga.

Full of comedy and bravery, Bunga is definitely a great character. Although Fuli finds him kind of gross.

5 Ono Ono is the quinary protagonist of the 2016 Disney Junior show "The Lion Guard". He is a cattle egret who is voiced by Atticus Shaffer who serves as the keenest of sight in the Lion Guard. He is the only non-mammalian animal in the guard being a bird and is the only one who can fly. He has been described ...read more.

I think Ono is number 1 due to his sometimes snappy replies and comments. He is also very polite, sarcastic, smart and quick thinking. He is always prepared to help whenever and whatever he can.

Smart, and ultra underrated. Remind me why Fuli and Kion are so appreciated while Ono's just sitting here waiting to be acknowledged by a fan other than myself as the best member of Kion's Lion Guard! My number 6.

Ono is one of the most underrated characters on the show. He is very intelligent and can not only see very well but also has the power of flight and both of these abilities are among my favorite superpowers. The would would never be able to spot danger without Ono's keen eyes in the sky.

The least annoying and least ugly. Kiara from her debuting movie is the best character from the Lion King franchise. In my opinion and Kion and bunga are the worst characters.

6 Rani

I get why she's hated sometimes, she was rude when we met her. But can you blame her? She saw Kion send her brother flying. She saw Bunga's landslide. Like any leader, she was conflicted and wanted to prove herself. She wanted to serve a purpose, to be good enough. She was insecure and unsure. When we get to see her true self, she's kind, sweet, brave, smart, and selfless. She put her cynicism aside to open up to Kion, set aside her doubts to help her Kingdom. And yet she's still hated on. Why? She's my number 5.

4th best character in the show! I don't ship Kirani, so no Kiuli shippers need to come at me here, but I still love Rani! She's a great leader, she's kind, and she's protective. At first she was a bit mean, and I absolutely despise it when she tries to win Kion's love, but I still like her character and I respect most of her decisions. I really like Rani!

Rani is caring and always willing to do good things. She is also very optimistic.

Kion's mate. I really love Rani. Her singing is as beautiful as kiaras, and she's really pretty. She goes through loss too

7 Beshte Beshte is the quaternary protagonist of the 2016 Disney Junior series "The Lion Guard". He is a hippo who is voiced by Dusan Brown and is the strongest member of the Lion Guard. He has been described as "happy-go-lucky", "compassionate", and "honest".

Unlike Fuli, Beshte didn't go through any character growth, but unlike Bunga, Beshte didn't need to. He was already by far the most mature of the group and was part of one of the best ideas ever to come out of the Lion Guard - Poa the Destroyer. He's really nice and really friendly too. One of my favorite scenes of Beshte is the one where Goy Goy gets stuck in a hole, tells the Lion Guard where Rai Rai and the rest of the pack is, and then the rest of the Guard runs off without helping Goy Goy like they said they would, (One of the MANY problems with that horrible episode) but Beshte actually honored their word. He's simple and doesn't have very many flaws, but sometimes you want simple characters and sometimes you want complex ones.

Kind, strong and loving characteristics make Beshte one of the best characters in The Lion Guard.

He's so nice to everyone and is very brave and peaceful! He is way too underrated!

I love how he always tries to help everyone by being strong.

8 Kiara

She's my number one, and should be yours too. She has both tomboyish and girly qualities, so both tomboys like most of you girls or girly girls like me can relate to her. She's a cheerful, bubbly, cute, pretty, and sweet romantic who hates gross things and prefers quiet fun. But she's also a bit rebellious herself and isn't afraid to get dirty. A perfect mix. She's cheery, and though a brave and stubborn girly, she's kind. She's also much more intelligent than many of you think. I mean, she's so wise when it comes to knowledge of the Circle of Life. She knows the Pride Lands so well, and she even was able to figure out so many things before the Lion Guard(Rise of Makuu comes to mind). She can be a bit arrogant (Queen for a Day comes to mind), but that was mostly due to pressure by her friends, and resentment from Kion, who was supposed to support her and hear her out, combined with her being right in the past. She was able to hold her own against Janja's clan for a while before ...more

Kiara is as well kions sister, but she is a good sister she is very kind, intellegent and you would actually never know kion might be the main character but Kiara is in the lion guard as well

I really like Kiara because she is a great sister to Kion and makes great choices like when she was queen for a few days and other times when she was in charge she was a great acting queen.

Kiara should be number one! I know she is proud, slightly tomboyish, disobedient and arrogant, but she is also kind, selfless, headstrong, intelligent, brave, pretty, and curious! She is proud but her heart is in the right place!

9 Janja Janja is the main antagonist of the first season and later became one of the three secondary antagonists (behind Scar) of the second season of Disney Junior animated series The Lion Guard.

My 3d favourite villain and 7th favourite character in the show! I love Janja! He's a pretty cool character and he's a really good villain and I ship Jansiri with all my heart. I love Janja!

How is he not number one. I absolutely love this character. To me he's the most relatable character I have ever seen. I mean I would probably be exactly like him if I was evil and a hyena. Also his songs are the best songs out of the whole show and maybe even the franchise. Yeah probably, but in all honesty this is one or maybe even the best character out of the franchise. I know he's my favorite.

I loved Janja in seasons 1 & 2, he was like the best villain in the show and my favorite character, I just wish they kept him a villain instead of reforming him, I still liked him in season 3 but I think his character was better as a villain.

Janja is so adorable. I love this character so much. He's so relatable. He's also really loyal until the 3rd season of the Lion Guard. He's really smart and a lovable coward. I love him so much.

10 Nala Nala is a fictional character who appears in Disney's The Lion King franchise and is introduced in the animated film The Lion King in 1994.

What is she doing so low? She's a great mom, a great spouse, a great friend, and a smart, brave, and caring ruler who is far more mature and rational than Simba. Criminally underrated. My number 2.

Nala is my favourite because she is so kind and knows what to do. She is a great mother to her two children and is calm with a soothing voice.

She loves simba

The Contenders
11 Tiifu Tiifu is a young lioness cub from Disney Junior's 2016 series "The Lion Guard". She is best friends with Kiara, Zuri, and Thurston and is voiced by Sarah Hyland in "Return of the Roar", season 1, and "The Rise of Scar" and was replaced with Bailey Gambertoglio for the rest of season 2. She has been ...read more.

She's such an underrated girl! I know she's shallow, reckless, irritating at times, and a bit immature. But she's sweet, smart, and brave enough to face her fears to save her friends. And did I mention that it's heavily implied that she was literally fighting in the Battle for the Pride (in the Lion King II)? That's right, she and Zuri may be girly and afraid to get dirty, but at the end of the day, they're brave, strong, and there's more to them than meets the eye. She's my number 8.

I like Tiffu because she is a good friend to Kiara, Zuri, and Thurston and I really like that we got to see a full episode of her development and we got to learn more about her. She's also a lot better then her whiny brat excuse for a friend Zuri. Go Tiffu!

Give her some slack haters what makes zuri people say Tiifu is bad with the reasons she's not and zuri is like. Always wanting to look good. Not caring. Is mean to Kion well sometimes yes but zuri is more mean to him. Crying over stupid stuff. Wanting to be kiaras friend cause she's queen that one draws the line.

Tiifu is one of the most boring and overreacting characters.
OC: Oh hey Tiifu can I hang with Kiara?
Tiifu: No, no Kiara's my bestie! Back off!
OC: Ok..JK was only seeing how'd you react!
(End of scene)
No really but come on is it just me or is she sooo fake and suck up?! Like really at least with Zuri she is at least honest the girl would lie about of the sky just if it'd make her look good in front of Kiara and Nala! It's like if she likes them then why not Kion? But nope never once was she ever kind to him only Kiara Nala Zuri and Simba(Who she hardly even interacts with but still.)

12 Reirei

My ideal life partner would be like Reirei. She's sweet, smart, charming and possessive. A great mom and wife.

Why oh why does she have to get kicked out of the Pridelands?! She's just a mother trying to feed her pups!

The other of my 1 favorite characters in the show along with Janja!

Unlike kiburi, she cares for her pack. Especially Dogo and Goigoi. She is kind to them, and sometimes even to Janja.

13 Thurston

I like how he is so clueless and always panics and runs and that is why he is so funny.

14 Vitani

Vitani is the best TLG girl, I mean her style is distinct and for once a character who stays the same throughout lion king 2 to lion Guard and then to the lion king 2 again. She is a down to earth, self centred young teen with the same amount of attitude as in the first movie. She and Kovu appear to be young teens bordering on adolescent-hood. She is also much prettier than Tiifu Zuri and Rani(the newly introduced TLG lioness character).

I don't care if you get mad but here it goes. I DON'T REALLY LIKE VITANI. She starts out as rude and annoying, and she is too much of a tomboy for my liking. She is more likable at the end, though she still is kind of mean.

Ya "Lion guard " I know You just had to make her bad and Kovu as well I hate Kion I love Vitani!

She's cool! She's been one of my favourite TLK characters since TLK2. I wonder if she'll be in any more episodes.

15 Makuu
16 Makini

She's adorable, energetic, and eager to learn. She's kind of like a good version of Bunga, and she added something new to the group in season 3, unlike Anga. To be fair to Anga, I haven't actually seen much of her, so my opinion of "she's meh" could change.

A total sweetheart! love her forever! My number 4. Smarter than she looks.

She's a sweetheart.

17 Cheezi

I actually like Cheezi. He's kinda adorable.

A waste of a character.

18 Zuri Zuri is a young lioness cub from Disney Junior's "The Lion Guard". She is best friends with Tiifu and Kiara and is always by their side. She is voiced by Madison Pettis. She has been described as "prim", "sassy", and "melodramatic".

She's so cool though. She's so much more prettier and better than Tiifu is, Tiifu is such a ugly suck up always trying to get people in the way of her and Kiara's friendship and only wants to be friends with Kiara because she'll be queen one day. Tiifu is also such a loser and jealous of Fuli and hates Kion, clearly. Zuri is way more cool funny and prettier than Tiifu is and will ever be. Also, Zuri is clearly going to be with Kion. :) she is also very kind towards him and the guard and is cool to Kiara like a true friend should be.

Tiifu and Zuri are both not bad. I mean, I prefer Tiifu, but Zuri is prissy and prim, and sassy. I don't hate it, I like it. She can be melodramatic, snobby, easily upset, arrogant(I mean, she treats Kion like he's bellow her), but she is caring and sweet underneath, she comforts Tiifu when she is upset, and comes to Kion's coronation, so she does care for others. As for Makucha, Zira, Mzingo, and Thurston, well, Makucha and Zira are just evil, Mzingo is fine I guess, after he reforms, and Thurston is just dumb and cowardly.

Zuri may be weird and annoying at times but at least she's actual distinct and one sided. She is also accepting of others unlike Tiifu she is also way more honest and somewhat kind and appreciative she may not be as enthusiastic as Tiifu makes out to be to everyone but Kiara and Zuri. Zuri at least treats everyone with the same respect she is also very sensitive in some regards and is kind and supportive towards Kion.

Zuri is not a bad character I mean deep down she is caring and considerate I mean look at her towards Fuli(Who wasn't even her friend) "So what or who cares if she hunts with Kiara let her hunt it doesn't really matter because hunting is boring and gazelle doesn't even taste that good." See, she wasn't all jumpy and spiteful like Tiifu who just couldn't handle the thought that someone else was hunting beside the future queen. And Zuri is way more honest and compassionate I mean look at her even though she had gotten herself in a bit of a drama she still thought that her claws should like shiny and she could at least be appreciative towards Kion unlike Tiifu who is always yelling at him and seeing his flaws! There's a clear winner out of Zuri Kiara and Tiifu and Zuri without a doubt is the best female lion king/Guard character!

19 Kovu

He is better then scar

20 Makucha

He's a great villain!

21 Mzingo

He's the boss! Arrogant egoist, but with honor! All Hail The Vultures!

The best character ever!

I second this opinion

22 Simba Simba is a fictional character who appears in Disney's The Lion King franchise. Introduced in Walt Disney Animation's 32nd animated feature film The Lion King (1994), the character subsequently appears in its sequels The Lion King II: Simba's Pride (1998) and The Lion King 1½ (2004).

Simba appears in the lion king 1, 2 and 1 1/2 also the lion guard. He is a good King with a great Queen Nala

Simba is not good in this crappy show!

23 Ushari

Ushari is easily one of the most complex characters on the show. He started out as a background character - one that was constantly getting trampled, squashed, pounced on and thrown around by a certain honey badger. Nobody even thought to apologise to him - sure, Kion did ONCE say, "Bunga! Leave Ushari alone!" but never once did Kion attempt to make amends with Ushari.

When Ushari finally became fed up, he decided to take matters into his own coils. Although the good thing would have been to try to speak to the King, but in all fairness, what were the odds of Simba listening to a complaint regarding his own son? So, Ushari finds out Kion can speak to Mufasa, and intends to use that knowledge to blackmail him. However, instead he talks Janja into resurrecting Scar, the most evil lion to ever rule the Pridelands (partially out of fear of being eaten and partially out of a desire for revenge). He soon becomes Scar's second-in-command for his cunning, intelligence and contacts with ...more

Ushari is my third favorite character in the Lion Guard show, and I love his story. It's one of the most compelling stories of any character in the Lion Guard. He's an Egyptian cobra who's had a good life until the Lion Guard is formed. Now any time he gets near these "protectors of the Pridelands" he gets stepped on, trampled, pounced on, thrown, or otherwise inconvenienced. I don't blame him for being mad at the Guard, I don't think any member of the Guard ever once said "sorry" to him. EVER. And I'm SuRe it's JuSt a coincidence that the Guard fusses over the elephants, galagos, and zebras, who all eat plants, insects, and not meat(galagos are omnivores, and since we never see omnivores in the Lion Guard hunt other animals, I always assumed they will only eat insects and plants), but doesn't care about the meat eating snake they've run over multiple times. Ushari? Who's Ushari? No, it's not a coincidence, 4 out of the 5 banished species in the Outlands are meat eaters and the fifth ...more

24 Zira

She is a outlander

25 Dogo
