|First Appearance||The Lion King (1994)|
Scar is the secondary antagonist of The Lion King. He is the younger brother of Mufasa and the uncle of Simba. Scar is jealous of Simba's position as the next king of the Pride Lands, so he plots to kill his brother and nephew, in order to seize the throne. To carry out his plans, Scar recruits three spotted hyenas; Shenzi, Banzai and Ed — who gladly do his bidding in exchange for food. Mufasa foils their first attempt to kill Simba, so Scar calls up an entire army of hyenas and promises that when he is king the hyenas will "never go hungry again". With the help of the hyenas, Scar triggers a Blue wildebeest stampede meant to kill both Simba and Mufasa. Mufasa manages to save his son, but as he tries to escape by climbing up the gorge, Scar throws Mufasa off the cliff and to his death. Scar then convinces Simba that he caused the stampede (he had let out a loud yowl, while practicing roaring, seconds before the stampede began, and had not seen the hyenas chasing the herd into the gorge nor Scar throw his father to his death) and caused Mufasa's death. Simba runs away, overwhelmed by guilt and fear. Scar then orders Shenzi, Banzai and Ed to chase the cub and kill him. Unknown to Scar, however, the hyenas do not succeed.
Scar then returns to Pride Rock and assumes the throne, letting the hyenas into the Pride Lands and leading the other lions to believe that both Mufasa and Simba died in the gorge. Scar's reign over Pride Rock is a disaster; droughts hit, food and water becomes scarce, and many animals die while others try to move on away from the Pride Lands, causing the kingdom to become a barren wasteland. He also grows increasingly paranoid about the loyalty of his subjects, becoming enraged upon the mere mention of the name "Mufasa." Years later, to Scar's surprise, Simba returns to challenge his uncle for the throne, making Scar very angry at the hyenas for failing to kill him in the first place. After a verbal confrontation, Scar finally confesses to everyone that he is the one who actually killed Mufasa and a fierce battle ensues between Scar's hyenas and Simba's friends and family while Simba fights Scar himself. Scar attempts to keep Simba complacent by lying that the hyenas are 'the enemy', not knowing that the hyenas have heard him saying it, but Simba doesn't take it, saying that there's no reason to believe Scar anymore because all he ever did was lie to him. Simba finally defeats him by flipping Scar over a cliff where the hyenas are waiting just below. The hyenas, determined to get revenge on Scar for previously denouncing them as "the enemy" as well as mistreating them and not keeping their promise to never go hungry again, surround their fallen leader in anger. Scar attempts to pacify them by explaining that he didn't really mean what he said about them, but the hyenas refused to listen to his explanation and begin to maul him alive.
