Top Ten Reasons Why The Lion Guard Is Going to Suck

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Horrible characters
22 Simba forgets his friendship with Timon and Pumbaa

But again, Timon and Pumbaa both are horrible, downright annoying characters.

Timon and Pumbaa deserve better than this. They were very important, if it wasn't for them, Simba would be dead!

Timon and Pumbaa helped raise Simba a and helped him become king. Well anyway he's back but doesn't remember any of that and thinks he's better then them. They are introduced as minor characters if it wasn't for them he wouldn't be king!

23 The writing is rather poor or cheesy
24 Stereotypical characters

Disney needs a spanking on a bare butt!

25 Kiara never had a brother. She was an only child in Simba's Pride. V 1 Comment
26 Too dark for a preschool channel

Exactly. I heard that the upcoming second season is going to be darker, which I am hoping it would be cancelled soon.

27 Bad fanbase

So true. It's not too surprising to see it have a bad fanbase since it's a spinoff of The Lion King.

Probably just as bad as the MLP fanbase - Neonco31

28 Kiara is now a brat

They've made Kiara a loyal and independent lioness to a whiny child-like brat with a sassy attitude! what

29 Bunga is annoying
30 The characters are all too derivative of those of other animated series

It wouldn't hurt to be original once a while, you know.

31 Terrible choice of heroes and villains

The "villains" of the show are portrayed as sympathetic characters who are trying to do nothing but to find food and feed themselves, whereas the "heroes" are portrayed as a bunch of bullies who protect the so-called 'circle of life' by keeping the "villains" away from finding their food and forcing them to starve for no reason by driving them away to the 'outlands' where there is little to no food with the so-called 'roar of the elders'. When the heck is finding your own food such a crime? I think the show might be encouraging the audience who watches it to grow into bullies who force others to starve. That is not a good moral to teach children, to be honest.

32 Kion meets a hyena

At least it breaks the stereotype of "all hyenas are evil" that was evident in the original Lion King film.

In one episode, Kion travels to the Out-Lands. He meets a hyena named Jasiri. Then, they become friends. That is so queer, it's not even funny!

33 It's a spinoff of The Lion King
34 It's for little children

Although I have no problem with anything aimed at children, I just hate the whole Lion King/Guard franchise because it can be too dark or depressing for children or the supposed target age group, although there are other reasons.

35 It is called the lion guard not the animal guard

I know, right? Also, it would have been better if it was an ORIGINAL franchise instead of a Lion King spinoff with Lion King characters in it.

36 Kion is too muscular

I know I should never judge a fictional character by the design, but I just can't help it with The Lion Guard and all of it's characters. How come that the Pridelander lions (i.e. Simba, Mufasa, Kion) look so muscular compared to the more villainous Outlander lions (i.e. Zira, Kovu, Nuka, Vitani)? It's like if the series glorifies look-shaming for no reason.
