Top 10 Best Lion Guard Characters


The Top Ten

1 Fuli 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 more.

I love fuli she is the best female character I have ever seen

Nope. No just no. She sucks.

She's matured over many episodes now. I've always liked her since the movie and show came out. Fuli reminds me of many relatives. I can relate to her, I'm just like her. Fuli is a female cheetah, and female cheetahs live on their own. But she's still a cub, and at her age she'd still be with her mother. Maybe she could be a young teen or something around that. - LemonadeOcean

She’s the most annoying and dumb of all the characters, I mean come on cheetahs can only run for small amounts of time and not that fast if you want fast then Disney just should put racing cartoons or something like that I mean I prefer Bunga he is way better and follows the rules (although I don’t really like anything that is associated with the lion guard) anyway this show is just dumbfounded

2 Kion 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 more.

He should be one he's the main character.

He matches me in every who are you test

Simply the best

He's ok but all of the Lion Guard charaters are full-on weirdos - Sofiaaaaaa

3 Jasiri 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", more.

One of only 2 instances ever that a female was my favorite character in a series

What can I say? I'm IN LOVE with her! Jasiri is brave, clever, SUPER CUUUTE and..., SOOO BEAUTIFUL!
And of course, she sings like a little angel!


"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 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".

He's annoying but..
Makes good roasts lol - Sofiaaaaaa

A terrible excuse of a character. I refuse to accept him as a "good guy" because he is so mean. He should be a villain, not a hero. He farted on a gazelle herd as a way to save Kiara instead of walking her to safety. I wish Bunga would die, already.

He's also so ANNOYING, too. And I thought Timon and Pumbaa were annoying, Bunga is even worse.

He's a really funny and good character, but he is really rude

5 Ono 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 more.

The only character who is actually smart.

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.

Nerd Support!

Whata cutie!

6 Beshte 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".

What makes him dumb?

This character is so dumb, honestly. Hippos are the most dangerous land animals, yet it's perfectly okay to have one as a hero when that trope is so old and overused by now.

Because we all know lions totally aren't dangerous at all. Nope, no signs of being carnivorous, territorial, incestuous or deadly in real life with them. - Simba_Lennon

7 Kiara Kiara

Kiara is the complete opposite of what she was in the Lion King 2

In the lion king 2 Kiara is selfless kind headstrong and independent, but in the lion guard she is snobbish,bratty,sassy and arrogant!

Kiara what have they done to you?!

I miss her playful and nice personality of her. But at least she got better(I hope she only changes to be better) as the show progresses. I still like her more than Kion(I am talking about her nicer lion guard personality she got after the Return of the Roar.)

8 Janja 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 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.

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 doesn't lead a clan. He just has Cheezi and Chung helping him. Plus, Hyena clans have about 7 hyenas or more. - Fuli201

9 Nala 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.

I just don't like how they made her seem defenseless. In the original Lion King, she's confident and never stands down. But in the Lion Guard, like most characters, they had to make her not fight back so that Lion has to save her. But honestly, the series isn't that bad to me.

10 Tiifu 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 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.

Great character I wish she was in more episodes.

Hi voters

She’s loyal and kind to her friends throughout the series and In my opinion zuri is way worse.

11 Reirei Reirei

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! - ThugLifeSwag1995

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

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

12 Vitani 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.

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).

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

13 Cheezi Cheezi

I actually like Cheezi. He's kinda adorable.

A waste of a character.

cute uwu

14 Rani

Yeah whoever said I hope she dies...shut up hater.

i love her

Rani as a cub

Well a lot of my friends hate her like wow they always win bla bla.and oh I am queen and lkion going to be King. So what's new..thank God its finished.

15 Zuri 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".

I don't know why people hate her she is better than Tiifu in my opinion.

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!

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!

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.

16 Rafiki Rafiki

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).

37 Mufasa Mufasa Mufasa is a major character in Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He is Simba's father, Sarabi's mate, Scar's older brother, and was King of the Pride Lands until his death.
38 Ma Tembo
39 Ogopa

Cute hyena

40 Ushari

Ushari is one of the best characters in the lion guard, I know he gave Kion a scar on his eye in season 3, but I really love Ushari and it breaks my heart to see him die in the lava like that. At the beginning of this series, Ushari was just a random cobra who always get hurt when he's near the lion guard, but when "The Rise of Scar" happened, Ushari finally had enough of being pushed around and he decided to bring back Scar and work for him. And I was absolutely FURIOUS when Kion used the roar on him and I was even more torn when the writers of the lion guard decided to kill him off!

Long Live Ushari...🐍

PS: R.I.P Bunga, I have no regrets.
