Kion assures his friends that it is just the wind and suggests that the little ones sleep together that night in order to feel safe. Ushari sneaks up on Kion and slashes his eye, giving him a scar and injecting him with venom. Bunga licks himself, then tells Ushari he's missing out. They work together with Mtoto in order to wipe the paint from each elephant. When Beshte refuses to climb down the hole, Kion looks to Fuli, who groans over Bunga's absence. Ma Tembo resumes her search for a new water. Realizing that he'd forgotten to ask about Flat Ridge Rock, Beshte rushes back to ask Mbeya for directions. Kion voices his concern that Scar is behind the attacks, and orders Ono to scout out the Outlands. Though the involved parties are unknown, Bunga suspects Makuu. At Mizimu Grove, Rafiki and Simba announce the celebration, and Timon and Pumbaa perform their song ("Tujiinue"). While Pumbaa was quick to accept Bunga due to his cuteness, Timon was against it due to how difficult raising Simba had been. Across the kingdom, Bunga and Ono gather bugs for the celebration. When Zazu gets his bill stuck in a beehive, Bunga climbs into the tree to free him. Kion • Bunga • Fuli • Ono • Beshte • Simba • Kiara • Janja • Rafiki • Timon • Pumbaa • Mufasa • Tiifu • Zuri • Mzingo • Cheezi • Chungu • Nala • Zazu • Ono's flock. In the Lair of the Lion Guard, Makini and the Lion Guard discuss how Scar was defeated by Simba, which inspired the Kumbuka celebration. Bunga, however, stays behind and remains unhurt, snacking on the honey and bees. With Kion in the lead, the Lion Guard confronts the hyenas, and Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to banish them back to the Outlands. Beshte does as he is told, and the elands cross safely to the other side. Before the hyenas can hurt Bunga, Kion steps in, roaring so loudly that the hyenas drop Bunga, who climbs to safety. Kion submits to Makuu's request and leads his team away from the float, unaware that Kiburi is watching from the shadows. The force of Makucha's hit causes the rocks to break apart, and the river swells once more, filling Dhahabu's watering hole. She comments on how strange it is that all the Outlanders have been banding together, and Kion explains that they are all fighting under Scar's banner. As she does so, Ono arrives, incredulous at Fuli's actions, and she exclaims that she is simply trying to make the antelope stand. He then launches into the musical sequence "Hadithi the Hero", in which he boasts about his past accomplishments and how popular he is among the Pride Landers. The Lion Guard investigates Twiga's tree. Twiga is quick to deny this assertion, and Vuruga Vuruga backs her up, with both acting suspiciously. Bunga attacks a member of Kiburi's plot to assassinate Simba. The Lion Guard catches Janja and his minions, Cheezi and Chungu, attempting to steal a supply of melons from the elephants, who need the fruits' moisture to survive the dry season. The Lion Guard brushes off his warnings and continues on their way. Later, Madoa informs the Lion Guard that Scar is planning their biggest attack yet on Mizimu Grove, unaware that it is a trap. The Lion Guard arrives at the scene, and, sure enough, Janja and his crew are attacking the elephants. Just then, Makini and Ono emerge from underground. Though Fuli is reluctant to accept the idea, Makini dresses up the Lion Guard to resemble lions. As the Lion Guard fights them off, Makini bears Ono to safety. The Lion Guard bids farewell to Lumba-Lumba. The team urges Ono to fetch Rafiki for healing, but when Ono arrives at Rafiki's tree to get help, only Makini is at home. Though hesitant, Badili agrees to train with the Lion Guard. Kion then uses his Roar to create a path through the waters. Simba comments that the rocks will fall if the gazelles try to ascend them and then shouts for the Lion Guard to follow him. Too late, the rocks fall, separating the Lion Guard from their charges. With no hope of crossing back over, Kion instructs his friends to meet him at Flat Ridge Rock while he attempts to navigate through the Outlands. Kiburi reluctantly gives in, and the float leaves the Pride Lands. They then implore the red pandas to join them in defeating Chuluun. Simba gives orders to Bunga and the rest of the Guard. He is also very friendly and kind. He explains that there will be five competitions to determine who is the fiercest, strongest, fastest, keenest of sight, and bravest in the Pride Lands. He takes them to a wall of paintings and explains that Simba had banished the Outsiders to the Outlands after they had retained loyalties to Scar, Simba's evil uncle. However, the event soon gets out of hand, for the animals trip over the galagos and end up in a heap. The Lion Guard quickly apologizes to Makuu, who leads his float in continuing their training. Across the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard attempts to save a pair of hippopotamuses and Zito the elephant from dry lightning. Kion agrees, as does Jasiri and her clan. At first, the gorilla is hostile, but he backs down upon realizing that he is facing the Lion Guard. Bunga and Baliyo start leading the animals toward the Tree of Life, but Bunga lets slip that Poa the Destroyer will be there. Instead of answering, Badili forges ahead of the Lion Guard, returning to his tree alone. Kion then leaves to speak with Askari, leaving Fuli in charge of the Lion Guard. His final appearance was in Battle for the Pride Lands. The first competition is a battle of strength between Beshte and Imara, in which they must each push a rock with an elephant on top to the finish line. While ridiculing his enemies, Bunga stumbles upon Kenge's trigger word, "little." In the Lair of the Lion Guard, Bunga arrives with Kion's message, but is distracted by a race between Fuli and Ono. When Bunga succeeded and gave the grubs to Timon, Timon and Pumbaa decided to keep the little honey badger, and the three began to live together. The Lion Guard arrives in time to help, but Kion and Rani's dual leadership results in confusion. Later, the Lion Guard worries over what is keeping Kinyonga. Next, Tazama challenges Anga to find Laini, who is hiding in a dark cave. Kion quickly takes charge of the situation, entering the hippo lanes with Ono, while Bunga and Fuli stay behind with the rest of the herd. First, the team does an obstacle course, but when it's Mtoto's turn to dash through the water, he gets water in his trunk and sprays it all over Fuli. Just then, Kion gets the idea to track down Muhangus and ask him for directions. While one painting depicts a herd of running zebras, the other shows a large rock falling to the earth. Kion then bids them goodbye and leaves them to wait for Simba. At that moment, the Lion Guard notices Thurston speaking to a rock and figures that it must be Kinyonga at work. Meanwhile, the Lion Guard patrols the Tree of Life, coming across a dispute between Heng Heng the panda and Kely the lemur over a bamboo stand. Soon, however, Kion laments having left Ono behind with Hadithi, as the tallest tree in the Pride Lands is difficult to climb. Ushari File:Ushari and Bunga rained on.png. After the fall, Fuli suggests that they take the route around the mountain, but Kion angrily insists that they continue climbing. After the story, Ullu arrives and warns the Lion Guard that Makucha's army is launching another attack. Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to defeat the Outlanders, while Simba deliberates what to do with Ma Tembo. This causes Kion to recall Askari's statement that only one who can let go of the Roar can truly master it. Bunga rallies the herd into the Flood Plains. Ono spots the attack, and Kion leads his team into battle. Kion explains that he and his friend, Ono, have come for healing. Bunga and Binga then use their stench to defeat Mama Binturong. He offers to guide them out of his territory, and Kion accepts the offer. However, the rest of the team arrives just in time to fend off the vultures, and Kion uses his roar to ensure that they are not delayed again. The Lion Guard arrives, and Bunga looks on as Kion blasts the hyenas away with the Roar of the Elders. At that moment, Ono spots Kiburi's float marching through the Pride Lands, and the Lion Guard rushes to stop them. After suffering countless unintentional abuses by the Lion Guard, Ushari and his ally, Janja, summon and join forces with the spirit of Scar. At sunset, Fuli, Makini, and Kongwe converge with Bunga and the rest of the Lion Guard. However, another sandstorm strikes, erasing their footprints and shifting the landscape so that they do not recognize where they are. As Bunga flees the scene, Mama Binturong vows revenge. Just then, Kiburi is called to return to the mashindano, and he and Makuu begin their fight. Kion starts to break his team up into groups, but realizes that Beshte is still in hiding. After the rescue, Bunga and the Lion Guard follow Kulinda's scent to where she is building a new nest in a tree. During their patrol, Ono informs his friends that Janja's clan is attacking Ma Tembo's herd. Together, the team and Thurston leave the Outlands to return home. The two Lion Guards argue over who should rescue Thurston, but Azaad merely approaches Thurston and tells him to back out of the hole. Back in the Outlands, Scar informs Ushari that he had lied to Janja, for if Kion uses the Roar in the volcano, he will start a massive eruption that will destroy the Pride Lands. Together, they corner Reirei and her family in the midst of the tree grove, and Kion orders them to return to the Outlands. Despite her confusion at Makuu's claim, Fuli threatens the crocodiles that they do not need Kion's Roar to defend the Pride Lands. Bunga and Rani witness Kion using the Roar of the Elders. Along the way, the Guard tries to correct him on his route, but Simba insists that they take his chosen path. In the Lair of the Lion Guard, Kion informs the Lion Guard that he has to go on a trip, and that Simba will lead them while he is away.
