Top 10 Best Lion Guard Characters

The Top Ten

1 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.

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 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. ...more

Fuli is just the best! To me Fuli and kiara have the same exact personality as me. They are kind, brave, daring, tomboyish, and cool. I love how Fuli helps kion stay calm in season 3 and comforts others. To me she is pretty wide in season 3, making everyone feel better. Fuli overall is cute and the best, and she's a REALLY inspiring character. And yes she get annoyed from others at times just like me.

"Seriously?" "Huwayzi!"

I love how she is really fast and is confident in herself which is a great quality to have if you don't let go to your head like Fuli doesn't, which is why she is one of the best.

2 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.

Kion is a fantastic character and a great leader, I just like him because he is nice to other and can be funny at times and he also looks cool.

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.

I know I can make a list but it seems that TheTopTens doesn't allow anonymous to make lists anymore, you'd have to join as a member...

He's not definitely the best and he's not a great leader. I dislike him.

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.

"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!

She is a striped hyena, not a spotted hyena, unfortunately. Still not enough to save the entire species from having a bad reputation, since the spotted hyenas in the show are not only all villainous, but their leader is a male (Janja) which is very unlike real-life where real spotted hyena clans are led by a female.

LOVE that Jasiri's in the top 3. Hopefully the writers will realize we want her as a member of the lion guard. A hyena lion guard member? how cool would THAT be?

She's so annoying her voice the way she is and her gary/ mary stu-ness! Being able to take on practically anyone in the outlands.

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".

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.

He always been annoying, even in later episodes. He's pretty much The Lion King media's equivalent to Scrappy Doo. He is awful and gets onto your nerves quickly. I rather chop him in half than have him as one of the heroes to be honest with you.

Thankfully, he makes an appearance as a villain in My Little Pony: The Movie... Oh wait, that's Grubber, sorry.

I hate Scrappy Doo but Bunga is cool I don't hate Bunga the reason for this is Bunga actually had a role in The Lion Guard and Scrappy Do had no such role of any kind in Scooby Doo The Lion Guard needs a bravest and Bunga was chosen to be the bravest but The Scooby Doo Gang does not need a Bravest Scrappy Doo was so unnecessary and was a joke of a character he ruined Scooby Doo for me he had no role first of all and acting so brave while everyone else was afraid was so stupid Scrappy Doo was so unnecessary I think the reason they named him Scrappy Doo is because he was supposed to be a scrapped character of Scrappy stands for Crappy adding Scrappy Doo to the gang was stupid and unnecessary he had no role as well as so brave and not scared while everyone else was scared I couldn't make it past episode 3 because Scrappy Doo was just ruining all the episodes for me The Scooby Doo Gang is so much better off without Scrappy Doo I really enjoyed the Scooby Doo series without Scrappy Doo ...more

In some episodes he is serious at times and he is less annoying in later episodes.

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 love how Ono always try to help other animals and always tries to help them whenever he can.

The only character who is actually smart.

Ono is a nerd though, he's like the nerd " of the group, Fuli's the altheltic tomboy girl, Kion's the jock, Bunga'a the jokester and Besthe's the cool calm guy of the group😸. Zuri's the fashionista popular girl, Tiifu's the suck up and Kiara's the popular wanna be not noticed. Vitani's the cool calm normal relaxed only angered when have to be or fight and Kovu's the easy going and understanding guy. Boga's the average flow under the raider girl, Babu's the cool jokester guy, Afua's the popular boy and Kopa's the tryna be cool guy. There ya go stereotypes 😉

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 Kiara

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!

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.

Would've been nice if they'd made her more mainer in the series and I wish she was there at the end of day of the crocodile to either laugh or get annoyed at her younger Bro for steeling her friend? U never know, though Kion could be the main character if the story didn't always centre on him like wit Kopa the story doesn't always necessarily have to be about him whenever his the main character so maybe it could be about Kion's life inside the pridelands and maybe he could grow up to be with Zuri and then maybe Tiifu and Zuri could drift apart when they are older as friends and maybe Tiifu could end up dying as well as Kovu but Tiifu could be Kiara's bestie then? U never know

While I still like and miss TLK 2 Kiara I actually prefer her on lion Guard for some reason. Also I don't mind her being friends with Tiifu and Zuri as well as Kion's older sister the series isn't all that bad though.

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.

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

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

8 Rani

Rani is adoptive Dougherty of simba, queen of the tree of life she is the best

I like Rani because she is strong, never gives up, and is understanding.

She’s a great character-Awesomejawson

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

9 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.

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

10 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.

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.

What?! Listen I don't mean to offend anyway before I say this but I'm not here to complain or rant on. But in my opinion Tiifu can be selfish and fake towards others, I mean in can't wait to be queen she used Kiara to make Kiara think she's better than everyone expect for her and Zuri, well mainly her and she also told Kion that he's not the queen and in other words she met that he can't think so he'd best just shut up 🤐 in other words and on top of that in return of the roar she dobbed him and his friends in because they were all inner species which played a big role in Kion's life I mean Tiifu is fake judgememtal arrogant and annoying. I mean she was so mean towards Fuli in Fuli's new family I mean my opinion the character is over done mean. She got all jealous just because Fuli was hunting with Kiara and not her and even Zuri saw this! She also suggested in baboons that they just sit there and do nothing when their lives were at risk and that they should just leave it to the ...more

Though she is annoying and somewhat of a complainer, she's loyal to her friends.

Well at least she's better than Zuri, she's my 4th favorite charcter in the show

The Contenders

11 Reirei

reire is my favorite because she takes care of her pack and her friends janja and the other leaders call each other dumb ut she doest

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

Yeah, and I believe she's not evil, she's just trying to feed her many pups

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

12 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.

I love Janja so much. He's my second favorite in the entire Lion Guard show, and the reason? Like Fuli, he has a character arc of sorts too. Except his is a redemption arc, and it's a really well done one. He starts out as one of the most delightfully evil characters I've ever seen and turns into kind of like MLP Discord, personality-wise. And its not a mad dash from point a to point b, it's a journey from this point to another destination, and it's nice. Battle for the Pridelands was very well done, but one of my favorite moments was when Janja realized Scar had just tried to kill him and his Clan, and that was the final straw in his internal battle. I also like how he knows that just because he says he's good now, the Pridelanders aren't going to magically start trusting him, and indeed, they don't. I really hate how the show sometimes just pulls a win for the Lion Guard out of nowhere, like in Eye of the Beholder, the zebras should have been eaten by then. His feelings towards the ...more

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.

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.

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.

13 Thurston

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

14 Vitani

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.

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).

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

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

15 Makuu
16 Cheezi

I actually like Cheezi. He's kinda adorable.

A waste of a character.

17 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".

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 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!

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.

Favourite character, so far. And enough of the comparisons between Zuri and Tiifu please, I mean they're not even the same quite clearly, Zuri is supposed to be more honest and natural and Tiifu is supposed to be more perky and fake kind (in my opinion) anyways the only thing and reason people compare them is because they are both cubs of around the same age who are friends with Kiara, that being said in my opinion they are not clones!

18 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.

Best character everrr

19 Kovu

He is better then scar

awesome is Kovu

I LOVE KOVU! ( wait... he's in the loin guard? )

21 Makucha

He's a great villain!

22 Mzingo

KION SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM LIOM GUARD. KION IS WORSE THAN JAR JAR BINKS. I love Mzingo while I hate Kion. I will put bomb on Kion's mouth. Zazu will get knife to kill Kion. WHY ANGA IS NOT IN THIS LIST. ALL KION FANS SHOULD BE KILLED BY HAAST'S EAGLE. IF MZINGO IS NOT #1 in WEEK AND THEN THETOPTENS WILL BE HACKED.

The best character ever!

I second this opinion

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

23 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 as two cubs kiara and kion and his mate is nala

Simba is not good in this crappy show!
