Anga lenga!
―Anga's catchphrase[src]

Anga is a female martial eagle. She is the former keenest of sight of the Lion Guard. She currently serves as a member of the Night Pride.

When mysterious fiery sticks begin dropping on the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard appeals to Anga for help. She agrees and discovers that a parliament of vultures are behind the attacks under orders from Scar. Together, she, the Lion Guard, and an eagle named Hadithi defeat the vultures and send them back to the Outlands.

After assisting the Lion Guard in defeating Scar, Anga replaces Ono as the keenest of sight due to his eyesight being damaged. She journeys with the team to the Tree of Life, where she eventually takes up permanent residence as a member of the Night Pride.

Biography

The Lion Guard

"Fire from the Sky"

Beshte: Hey, Anga, I want you to meet Kion and the-
Anga: Lion Guard. I know who you are.
Beshte and Anga[src]

Anga agrees to assist the Lion Guard

When fire sticks begin raining down from the sky, the Lion Guard rushes to protect Twiga's herd. In the midst of the attack, Ono attempts to find the source of the fire sticks, but the high altitude forces him to return to the ground. This gives Beshte the idea to talk to Anga, a high-flying martial eagle.

The Lion Guard finds Anga in a grove of trees, and she agrees to help them find the source of the fire sticks. Just then, another attack begins, and Anga and Ono take off to investigate the problem. As they fly higher and higher, Ono is forced to retreat, while Anga soars ahead. Once above the clouds, she spots Mzingo and his parliament dropping fire sticks onto the Pride Lands below.

Anga and Ono sing "Height and Sight"

Anga reports back to the Lion Guard, and Kion suggests that they rally the kingdom's birds to help stop the vultures. Ono suggests asking Hadithi for help, which excites Anga. Together, Anga and Ono depart to ask for Hadithi for help. Along the way, Anga teaches Ono how to fly as she does ("Height and Sight").

Eventually, Anga and Ono find Hadithi surrounded by his adoring fans. At first, Ono worries that Hadithi is still taking credit for the doings of others, but he soon realizes that Hadithi is humbly attributing his successes to those who deserve it. Ono implores Hadithi to help the Lion Guard, and Hadithi agrees, leading his followers to where the Lion Guard has gathered to plan their next move.

Anga and Ono rally the birds of the Pride Lands

Once the birds and the Lion Guard have rallied, they take off to thwart another attack, this time over the Maumivu Thorn Patch. During the fight, Anga gets wounded, and Hadithi and Ono rush to save her. However, Hadithi gets attacked by vultures and ends up falling into the thorn patch below.

With no Hadithi to rally the birds, Ono takes up the mantle of leader and manages to lead the birds in another assault. They round up the vultures, and Kion uses his Roar of the Elders to banish them back to the Outlands.

"Battle for the Pride Lands"

After the Army of Scar sets a fire near Pride Rock that traps the royal family on the peak, Anga and Hadithi work together to rescue them. After Ono is blinded in the final battle with Scar and his forces, Anga is appointed to the Lion Guard as the new Keenest of Sight. She then joins the group on their journey to the Tree of Life.

"The Harmattan"

While en route to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard arrives at the first landmark of their journey: a waterfall in the Back Lands. Anga spots the next landmark, an iroko tree, in the distance.

Anga attacks Jiona, one of Makucha's leopard allies

The team starts toward the tree, only to be thwarted by Makucha, who demands that they leave his territory. He and his friends, Fahari and Jiona, attack the Lion Guard until a dust storm called a harmattan interrupts the fight. Anga uses her eyesight to guide the Lion Guard to a cave by the waterfall, but Makucha and his friends have already taken shelter there.

Makucha explains that a harmattan can last for weeks and that he does not want them staying in his territory for so long. He offers to guide them out of his territory, and Kion accepts. Together, the leopards and the Lion Guard venture out into the harmattan.

Anga leads her team through a harmattan

Along the way, Makini chatters with Anga about the Tree of Life and reveals that many sick animals journey there for healing. Makucha draws his friends to the side and schemes to lead the Lion Guard off a cliff and force Makini to lead them to the Tree of Life.

Makucha leads the Lion Guard to a canyon that ends in a cliff. However, the Lion Guard cannot see the danger through the dust. Ono, who had been blown away in the wind, arrives and warns his team members, who turn to face Makucha and his friends. A brief scuffle breaks out, with Anga rescuing Bunga from falling over the cliff.

Anga rescues Bunga from falling off a cliff

The winds begin to pick up, and Ono warns the Lion Guard to take shelter behind rocks. The leopards do not hear his warning and get blown away. An enraged Makucha resolves to follow the Lion Guard to the Tree of Life, but his friends refuse. Makucha then leaves to track the team on his own.

With the danger abated, the Lion Guard arrives at the iroko tree. The team assures Ono that he is a valuable member of the team. They then set off for a two-peaked mountain, the next landmark in their journey.

"The Accidental Avalanche"

Anga after being attacked by the fearful snow monkeys

The Lion Guard struggles to climb up a mountain on their way to the Tree of Life. The team wonders if they should travel around the mountain, but Kion insists that they climb over it to save time. However, he slips on snow and knocks the entire Lion Guard down the slope with him.

After the fall, Fuli suggests that they take the route around the mountain, but Kion angrily insists that they continue climbing. Just then, Makini spots a family of snow monkeys relaxing in a hot spring. Anga flies over to ask for directions, only to scare them, as they are afraid of birds of prey.

Anga finds a new hot spring for the snow monkeys

Impatient, Kion decides to use the Roar of the Elders on the mountain in order to blow a hole through it. He uses the Roar and starts an avalanche that comes barreling toward them. The Lion Guard manages to rescue the snow monkeys from danger, but their home gets buried in the process.

Kion apologizes to the snow monkeys and vows to find them a new home as repayment. Yuki, the matriarch, explains that they want a hot spring with plenty of available food and no trees for large birds to nest in. Anga spots a hot spring, but warns that it is out of their way and has many nearby trees. Kion insists they journey there anyway.

Anga saves Bunga and the snow monkeys

When they arrive, the snow monkeys are scared off by flying squirrels and end up falling into a deep hole in the snow. Anga witnesses their disappearance, and Kion orders his team to investigate.

When the Lion Guard arrives on the scene, Bunga falls into the hole himself. Ono warns the others that they cannot get too close, else they will fall in as well, and that any movement within the hole will cause the snow monkeys and Bunga to fall deeper. Though the team looks to Kion for direction, he asks Fuli for help, as he is not thinking clearly. She agrees and orders Anga to lift the snow monkeys out in her talons.

Anga plays in the hot spring with Nabasu and Kimyo

Anga approaches the snow monkeys and tells them that she will lift them to safety in her talons. The snow monkeys react with fear and panic as Anga approaches them, causing snow to fill the hole. However, Anga bursts out of the snow with the snow monkeys and Bunga safely in her talons. Once they land, Fuli tells Anga to find a new hot spring for the snow monkeys.

Anga follows Fuli's orders, and the Lion Guard leads the snow monkeys to a new home. Once there, Fuli allows the team to take a brief reprieve, as they have earned it. Anga plays in the hot spring with the two young snow monkeys, Nabasu and Kimyo.

"Ghost of the Mountain"

Anga informs Kion and Bunga that there is a nearby patch of tuliza

While on their way to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard reaches a bamboo forest. Anga spots a patch of tuliza, and Bunga offers to fetch some for his team. He bounds up a cliff to reach the tuliza, but slips and falls a great height to the snow below.

After Bunga's fall, a pack of red pandas approaches, hailing Bunga as "Sonnesen Khun." The Lion Guard approaches questioningly, and a red panda named Dughi explains that a Chosen One was destined to fall from the sky and defeat the Ghost of the Mountain.

Anga corners Chuluun against a large rock, where she is visible

Just then, the pack's leader Domog approaches and explains that their pack has been haunted by an invisible force that has driven them from their homes. Kion agrees to help the red pandas defeat the ghost in order to keep the Circle of Life in balance and adds that even though they are not in the Pride Lands anymore, they are still the Lion Guard.

The team journeys up the mountain, where they are set upon by an invisible foe. The team struggles to catch the "ghost" until it leaps onto a rock, allowing Anga to see that it is a catlike creature. Ono identifies the "ghost" as a snow leopard, and the Lion Guard tracks its footprints up the slope.

The Lion Guard arrives to defend the red pandas from Chuluun

Eventually, through teamwork, the Lion Guard corners the snow leopard, Chuluun, against a rock. Kion warns Chuluun to leave the red pandas alone, but she asserts that she follows her own rules. However, before she can escape, Bunga tackles her, covering her in his orange paint. Chuluun fights him off and escapes.

No sooner has she disappeared when the team overhears fearful cries. Anga spots Chuluun, marked by orange paint, attacking the pack. The Lion Guard races to the rescue, only for Chuluun to evade them again. Domog questions if they had found the Ghost of the Mountain, and the team explains that Chuluun is behind the ghostly attacks. They then implore the red pandas to join them in defeating Chuluun.

Anga assists the Lion Guard and the red pandas in cornering Chuluun

Together, the Lion Guard and the red pandas follow Chuluun and corner her at the edge of a cliff. However, Chuluun rolls around in the snow to mask herself once more. Bunga orders the red pandas to keep Chuluun surrounded, then releases gas in her face. A shocked Chuluun loses her footing and plummets off the cliff.

Back at the bamboo forest, the red pandas thank the Lion Guard for their help. Makini identifies the next moja kwa moja stone, and the Lion Guard continues on their way.

"Marsh of Mystery"

Anga prevents Bunga from eating more snails

On their way to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard travels through a marsh. The team is attacked by mongooses, during which Makini runs off with Ono in order to protect him. After the fight, the Lion Guard realizes that Makini and Ono are missing and sets off to find them.

Along the way, they are continually attacked by the mongooses. Finally, Kion pins one down and demands to know why they keep attacking the Lion Guard. The mongoose explains that Bunga keeps eating their snails. Just then, Makini and Ono emerge from underground. Together, the Lion Guard journeys toward the next moja kwa moja stone. Along the way, Bunga attempts to eat more snails, but Anga grabs him in her talons and prevents him from doing so.

"Dragon Island"

On their way to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard stumbles upon an island. Kion wonders where the next moja kwa moja stone is, and Anga explains that it is on a hill on the island. The team ventures toward it, only to stop at the edge of the sea.

Anga leads the Lion Guard to Dragon Island

Bunga starts to play in the waves when he is swept out to sea. However, he is rescued by a dolphin named Lumba-Lumba, who explains how much she loves the ocean. The Lion Guard then bids her farewell and starts toward the island.

As the team starts to cross a land bridge to the island, they are stopped by an old civet, who warns them about the dragons that inhabit the island. The Lion Guard brushes off his warnings and continues on their way.

Anga saves Makini from a tidal wave

Once on the island, Makini bounds off to gather tuliza for Kion. No sooner is she gone when a Komodo dragon named Ora attacks with the help of his minions. A desperate Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to blow his foes away, but in doing so, he causes the water to recede from the island, then come back as a tidal wave.

The Lion Guard struggles to escape the tidal wave, which decimates the island and causes Makini to lose her tuliza. Just then, the team hears Lumba-Lumba crying for help from the beach. They find her stranded on the sand and vow to help her. Kion admits that he is not in the right head and puts Fuli in charge. She commands Anga, Makini, and Ono to find the next moja kwa moja stone while the rest of the team digs a tunnel from the sea to Lumba-Lumba.

Anga, Makini, and Ono reach the next moja kwa moja stone

Anga, Makini, and Ono identify the next landmark: a tree on a cliff. They overhear the Komodo dragons attacking the Lion Guard and race to their rescue. Together, the team fends off the attackers.

After the fight, Kion uses his Roar to create a path through the waters. The resulting waves wash Lumba-Lumba back to sea, and she thanks them for saving her. The Lion Guard then journeys across Kion's path through the waves, with Ora and his minions in hot pursuit. However, once the team reaches the shore, Kion stops roaring, and the waves crash in on the Komodo dragons. The team then journeys on to the next moja kwa moja stone.

"Journey of Memories"

Anga shades Beshte from the sun

On their way to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard finds a moja kwa moja stone at a dry riverbed. Makini remembers a waterfall that she'd visited with her parents. She implores the Lion Guard to take a brief detour to visit it, and Kion agrees. However, when the team arrives, they find that the waterfall has dried up. Anga spots the next moja kwa moja stone, and the Lion Guard continues on its way.

Along the way, Makini's memories prove to be different than the actual landscape. Eventually, the Lion Guard reaches the next moja kwa moja stone, which is located at a dry pool. Ono explains that the next landmark is a patch of four flowers in the shape of a diamond. Anga reports that she cannot find any white flowers, only a desert. Makini exclaims that she had to cross the desert in order to reach a series of cliffs. The team is doubtful of her memory, but with little else to go on, they let her take the lead.

Anga spots the cliffs in the distance

The Lion Guard crosses the desert, enduring extreme heat and sandstorms. Anga uses her body to block the sun from burning Beshte's back and shoulders. Later, Kion decides to go back the way they had come. However, another sandstorm strikes, erasing their footprints and shifting the landscape so that they do not recognize where they are. Ono then suggests that they build a shelter for the day and wait until nighttime to continue their journey.

That night, a jerboa named Tupp appears and leads them to a plant with water on its leaves. The Lion Guard drinks, and Anga questions how Tupp had found the plant. He explains that desert creatures use the sky to navigate their surroundings. This causes the team to realize that the four white "flowers" are really stars. They follow the stars to a series of cliffs, confirming that Makini's memories had been right all along.

"The Race to Tuliza"

On their way to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard struggles to cross a desert. A fatigued Kion trips, and Makini offers him her help. However, the irritation in Kion's scar causes him to snap at her and insist that he is fine. Fuli tells Makini to give Kion a dose of tuliza, but Makini admits that they are out.

Anga watches over Kion at Flamingo Beach

While Anga looks for tuliza, Bunga aggravates Kion. Anga spots a patch of tuliza past a nearby sea. The team arrives at the sea, only to find that the water is extremely salty. Makini suggests that Kion relax in the water, and he relents. Once in the water, he calms and begins to float on his back. In the meantime, Fuli leaves on her own to collect the tuliza.

A flock of flamingos lands, causing a disturbance, and the Lion Guard struggles to keep Kion calm. Eventually, the team loses track of Kion, who gets prodded by the flamingos. He awakens, irritated, and nearly uses the Roar of the Elders. Just then, Fuli approaches with the tuliza and gives him a dose. Immediately, Kion calms, and the team continues on its way.

"Mama Binturong"

Anga saves a civet from drowning

On their way to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard journeys through a forest. Along the way, the nearby animals panic every time the Lion Guard mentions tuliza, which confuses the team.

Unbeknownst to the team, they are being watched by a porcupine, who reports the incidents to a binturong named Mama Binturong. Mama Binturong declares that every tuliza flower belongs to her and that she will never let another animal have any.

Anga and Bunga question a gibbon on the location of Makini's staff

Meanwhile, Bunga pulls a prank on a civet by yelling, "Tuliza!" unexpectedly. The civet panics and falls into a nearby river, but Anga rescues him from drowning. The Lion Guard attempts to question him on why the forest animals are afraid to mention tuliza, but the civet flees in fear once again.

After the incident, Mama Binturong approaches and watches the Lion Guard from afar. She witnesses Makini fetching tuliza from her Bakora Staff, and orders her porcupine minions to steal the staff for her. The Lion Guard notices the theft, but only after Mama Binturong has taken the staff and retreated to her hideout.

Anga struggles to fit between the stone pillars

The team questions a gibbon on where the staff could be, but he panics when they mention tuliza. However, after being cornered by Anga and Bunga, he advises them to talk to a mongoose. The mongoose refers them to another animal, and he to another animal, and so on, until at last, the Lion Guard meets up with the gibbon in a cave. The gibbon explains that he could not have talked to them earlier, lest Mama Binturong's spies catch on to his activities. He informs the team that Mama Binturong hoards all the forest's tuliza in her hideout in the Stone Forest. The Lion Guard takes off to deal with the problem.

Once to the Stone Forest, the Lion Guard struggles to fit between the pillars. Anga flies overhead, but is unable to fit between the pillars. Only Bunga is able to squeeze through. He braves it alone, eventually reaching Mama Binturong's hideout, where he retrieves the staff and defeats Mama Binturong. Bunga returns to the Lion Guard and gives Makini her staff back, after which the team moves on to find the next moja kwa moja stone.

"Friends to the End"

Anga saves a gosling from a fall

While en route to the Tree of Life, Kion pushes the Lion Guard to travel as fast as they can. Eventually, the team stops for a break at a watering hole, but Kion cuts the break short, insisting that they should keep moving. Fuli asks Makini to give Kion some tuliza, but the herb does not soothe his bad temper.

The team eventually reaches a canyon, where they spot several goslings jumping off a cliff. Beshte insists on saving them, much to Kion's annoyance. However, the mother goose arrives and lectures the team for ruining her goslings' attempts to leave their nests. After the incident, Kion chastises Beshte and declares that they will no longer be helping animals who do not need their help.

Anga finds Kion dangling from a cliff

Shortly afterward, the Lion Guard finds their way blocked by a procession of peacocks. Impatient, Kion bulls his way through, purposefully knocking over one of the peacocks. The Lion Guard watches in shock.

After leaving the canyon, Beshte befriends a clouded leopard named Yun Mibu, who is skilled at hanging from his feet. Kion is irritated by the delay and growls at Yun Mibu until he flees. He then turns his ire on Beshte, which prompts Fuli to challenge him. The two nearly get into a fight until Bunga breaks it up and reminds Kion that Rafiki had warned them about the venom's effects. This horrifies Kion, who runs off into the forest.

With Kion gone, Fuli lectures Bunga for believing that Kion is evil. The rest of the Lion Guard joins in, voicing their confidence in Kion's character.

Anga rescues Kion from falling off a cliff

Fuli begins to worry about Kion's long absence and sends Anga to check on him. She spots him hanging perilously from the branch and is unable to save him herself, so she fetches the rest of the Lion Guard. Once there, they try and fail to think of a solution. Eventually, Beshte gets the idea to summon Yun Mibu for help.

Yun Mibu arrives and hangs by his feet over the cliff. With some help from Anga, he pulls Kion to safety. Once on dry ground, Kion apologizes for being so mean to his teammates. They forgive him, and Makini gives him some tuliza for good measure. Kion suggests that they head out again, but Fuli orders him to get some rest first. He relents, and the team settles down for a much-needed break.

"The Tree of Life"

While en route to the Tree of Life, the Lion Guard reaches a frozen lake. Anga explains that the lake is large, so it will take the team a long while to travel around it. The Lion Guard decides to cross on the ice in order to reach their destination faster. While the team is crossing, the ice begins to crack, and Makini loses her bakora staff to the frozen water.

Anga scouts the frozen lake

Since the Lion Guard no longer has Makini's staff to activate the moja kwa moja stone, they rely on Ono's memory of Rafiki's map to find their way. Ono states that the next stop on their journey is a pass through the mountains, and Anga uses her keen vision to lead the team to the right location. Unbeknownst to the Lion Guard, Ullu the owl spies on their activities and leaves to inform the Night Pride.

The Lion Guard enters the pass, but Bunga accidentally starts a rockslide by climbing the walls to reach a beehive. The rocks trap Bunga and block the pass. Not long after, the Night Pride arrives, and Baliyo attacks the Lion Guard. A fight ensues, in which Anga takes on Nirmala, who avoids Anga's attack by ducking. During the fight, Kion loses control and uses the Roar of the Elders on Baliyo. The leader of the Night Pride, Rani, condemns Kion and forbids the Lion Guard entry to the Tree of Life.

Anga attacks Nirmala

As Kion's team works to free Bunga from the fallen rocks, Kion laments his bad choices and resolves to rely on his friends instead of himself. He returns to his team and admits it is his fault that they cannot enter the Tree of Life. Beshte suggests explaining their situation to Rani, and Kion agrees, as he wants Ono to receive healing for his sight.

Later, Rani returns to the Lion Guard, only to find that they have cleared the pass. Kion apologizes to her and implores her to accept Ono for healing. Impressed by his selflessness, Rani allows the Lion Guard to come to the Tree of Life. The Lion Guard follows the Night Pride through the pass until they behold the Tree of Life for the first time.

"The River of Patience"

The Lion Guard arrives at the Tree of Life, where they meet its matriarch, Queen Janna. Kion explains that he and his friend, Ono, have come for healing. Janna orders her granddaughter, Rani, to give the rest of the Lion Guard a tour of the kingdom.

The Lion Guard is welcomed to the Tree of Life by Queen Janna

Rani gives the Lion Guard a tour of the territory, which includes a variety of habitats. However, she is called away by Ullu to deal with an attack on the Tree of Life's border. The Lion Guard decides to join the fight, as they worry over the Night Pride's fate. However, the Lion Guard arrives on the scene, only to find that the Night Pride has defeated their enemies. Baliyo mentions Makucha as being one of the attackers, and Kion apologetically admits that Makucha and his allies had followed the Lion Guard to the Tree of Life.

The Lion Guard and the Night Pride return to the Tree of Life, where Rani accuses Kion of letting in an army of predators. Kion apologizes and offers his services in defeating Makucha's army, but Janna advises Kion to heal before he helps the Night Pride.

Later, when Makucha and his army attack the Night Pride, the Lion Guard arrives in time to chase the army away.

"Little Old Ginterbong"

Anga relaxes at a water hole with the rest of the Lion Guard, Baliyo, and Rani.

Anga relaxes at a water hole alongside Fuli and Rani

Meanwhile, Mama Binturong plots to invade the Tree of Life by pretending to seek sanctuary from Makucha and his army. She adds that she will have to avoid Bunga, as he is the only member of the Lion Guard who might recognize her. The army enacts the plan, and the Night Pride falls for it, accepting Mama Binturong for healing at the Tree of Life.

As the Lion Guard heads for the Tree of Life to check on Ono's healing, Bunga leaves to meet his friend, Binga. Bunga heads off to find his new friend, while the rest of the team continues on its way. Together, the Lion Guard and Mama Binturong are led into the Tree of Life, where Janna accepts Mama Binturong for healing.

Anga takes over the task of finding Bunga from Ono

Back at the Tree of Life, Janna channels the Tree of Life's powers to heal Ono's eyesight. Ono is delighted, but Janna warns him that his vision will never be as good as it once was. Outside, Ono sees that Janna was right, as he can no longer see in such detail. Anga instead uses her vision to locate Bunga, who is still with Binga.

On their way to meet Bunga, the Lion Guard runs into Mama Binturong. They invite her to meet Bunga, but she declines. The team meets Binga, and Beshte explains that Kion is still healing with Nirmala. Mama Binturong spies on the conversation and comes up with a plan to defeat the Lion Guard and the Night Pride.

The Lion Guard successfully drives off Makucha and his allies

Mama Binturong returns to her allies and instructs them to kill Janna while she distracts the Night Pride. The plan goes into motion, with the Night Pride falling for Mama Binturong's cries for help. In the meantime, Makucha, Chuluun, and Ora sneak over the border.

Ullu the owl informs the Lion Guard of Mama Binturong's peril, and they resolve to help her. However, Ono realizes that Mama Binturong had called Chuluun by name in her cries for help, which indicates that they are working together. The Lion Guard heads to the Tree of Life instead and heads off Makucha, Chuluun, and Ora. Meanwhile, Bunga and Binga defeat Mama Binturong.

"Poa the Destroyer"

Anga and Ono relax at a water hole

Anga and Ono fly around the Tree of Life to sight-see.

Later, when Beshte inadvertently causes disasters that earn him a bad reputation, Rani gathers the Lion Guard at the Tree of Life. She explains that Beshte has been frightening the animals due to his accidents. A saddened Beshte exiles himself from the Tree of Life, believing himself to be a true destroyer. However, the Lion Guard decides to host a meeting at the Tree of Life where Beshte can earn the animals' trust back.

At the meeting, Kion and Rani explain that Beshte is friendly, not destructive. Just then, Beshte approaches with Pinguino on his back. Pinguino declares that Beshte had saved his life, effectively clearing Beshte's name. The animals start up a chant for Beshte.

"Long Live the Queen"

Anga sings "Long Live the Queen" at Rani's coronation

Mama Binturong and her army attack a tiger named Varya and her cubs, who are seeking sanctuary at the Tree of Life. The Lion Guard and the Night Pride arrive, saving the tigers from further harm.

Just then, Ullu arrives and warns Rani that Janna wants to see her, Kion, and the rest of the Night Pride immediately. While the Lion Guard stays behind to care for Varya and her cubs, the Night Pride and Kion follow Ullu to the Tree of Life.

Anga attends Janna's funeral at the Willows. Later, she attends Rani's coronation at the Tree of Life and sings "Long Live the Queen" with Fuli and Nirmala.

"The Lake of Reflection"

Mama Binturong spies on the Lion Guard and learns that Kion cannot control the Roar of the Elders

One day, Makucha and his army launch an attack on the Tree of Life. The Night Pride challenges them despite being exhausted from a night of patrolling. The Lion Guard arrives in time to help, with Anga and Ono taking on Mama Binturong. However, Kion and Rani's dual leadership results in confusion.

Eventually, the Lion Guard and the Night Pride succeed in driving off the army, though Rani criticizes Kion for not following her lead. Fuli jumps to Kion's defense, but Kion admits that he no longer has control of the Roar. Nevertheless, he offers to patrol the Tree of Life during the day in order to give the Night Pride time to rest, and Rani gratefully accepts his offer. Unbeknownst to the team, Mama Binturong is spying on their conversation from a nearby tree.

Anga during the "Remember What Makes You You" musical sequence

After the skirmish, Mama Binturong schemes with her allies against the Lion Guard and the Night Pride, ordering the army to attack in-between shifts at sunset.

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. The team decides to bring the two before Rani, who will decide who can claim the bamboo stand. Rani decides that Heng Heng can have the bamboo stand when she is required to eat and that the lemurs can have it in-between those times.

A younger Anga observes Kion and his friends saving Ono's egg

As Kion returns to his reflections, Rani tells Fuli that Kion may be unable to heal any more. She then relates what Kion had said about his inability to lead the Lion Guard without the Roar. The Lion Guard returns to Kion, and Anga relates the time that a much younger Lion Guard had rescued Ono's egg from Janja's clan ("Remember What Makes You You"). After the story, Kion feels inspired and revitalized, having realized that he does not need the Roar to lead his team.

After the story, Ullu arrives and warns the Lion Guard that Makucha's army is launching another attack. The Night Pride arrives, and Kion leads the two teams in their attack. The teams succeed, and Rani praises Kion for his great leadership skills.

"Triumph of the Roar"

Anga expresses confidence in Kion's leadership skills

Makucha and his army sneak into the Tree of Life due to Ullu falling asleep. The Night Pride arrives, only for the Lion Guard to take over the shift and defeat the army.

After the fight, Bunga compliments Kion for his good leadership skills, and Nirmala agrees, adding that Kion's healing is complete. Rani worries that this will prompt Kion to return to the Pride Lands, but Kion assures her that he and the Lion Guard will help defend the Tree of Life from Makucha's army first. Kion then leaves to speak with Askari, leaving Fuli in charge of the Lion Guard.

Anga arrives at Cikha Escarpment to warn Kion of Makucha's attack

While on patrol, the Lion Guard frees a camel who is stuck in the sand. Bunga worries that Kion could be in trouble and leaves to ask Rani for answers.

Across the territory, Mama Binturong brings in new allies for Makucha's army, including Fahari, Jiona, two komodo dragons, and Smun and his prickle.

Makucha's army invades the Tree of Life. Ullu warns the Night Pride about the army's attack, and they rush to the Tree of Life, only to be shut in by a giant rock pushed by Ora and his minions. With the Night Pride out of commission, the army attacks the animals at the Tree of Life. Ullu warns the Lion Guard of the danger. While the rest of the team hastens to the Tree of Life, Anga flies to Cikha Escarpment to warn Kion of the attack.

Anga witnesses Kion using the Roar of the Elders on Makucha's army

In the midst of the battle, Anga, Kion, Bunga, and Rani arrive, and Kion uses the Roar to defeat the villains. He then strikes the rock at the Tree of Life's entrance with lightning, destroying it and freeing the Night Pride. Finally, Kion sweeps Makucha and his army into a tornado, which sends them far away from the Tree of Life to never be seen again.

Nirmala declares that Kion is truly healed, and Rani thanks him for saving the Tree of Life. She then tells him that he should stay at the Tree of Life.

"Journey to the Pride Lands"

The Lion Guard approaches Kion and declares that they are ready to return home. Just then, Ullu approaches, heralding the arrival of Azaad, Janja, and Jasiri. Jasiri informs Kion that Zira is invading the Pride Lands and that the royal family needs the Lion Guard's help. The Lion Guard resolves to return home.

The Lion Guard hitches a ride on a log in order to reach the Pride Lands faster

Azaad leads the team to the fastest route home: a narrow canyon pass. Beshte is too wide to squeeze through, so Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to widen the pass. Next, the team comes to a canyon that is too wide to jump across, and Kion uses the Roar to funnel his teammates to the other side. Finally, Kion creates a rainstorm that fills a dry riverbed, allowing the team to hitch a ride on a floating log.

The Lion Guard continues their journey, passing familiar landmarks, such as the marsh, the mountain, and more ("As You Move On"). Eventually, they reach the Great Stone Wall. Kion uses the Roar to break apart the rock, not knowing that the wall functions as a dam, and accidentally opens a fissure that spurts water. Kion continues to Roar in order to hold the water back while the Lion Guard rescues nearby animals, which were spotted by Anga.

Anga warns her team that innocent animals are in the way of the floodwaters

Suddenly, Ono gets the idea to throw rocks into the path of Kion's Roar in order to cover the damaged section of the wall. The team works together, heaving rocks into the Roar, until there are enough to fix the hole in the wall. Kion stops Roaring, and the rocks fall, effectively blocking the dam.

Kion compliments his friends on their teamwork, and Azaad leads the team around the stone wall. They eventually arrive in the Outlands, where they catch a glimpse of Pride Rock in the distance. The Lion Guard then enters the Pride Lands, determined to save their kingdom.

"Return to the Pride Lands"

Anga spots Tazama causing trouble for the Lion Guard

The Lion Guard enters the Outlands, where they run into Madoa. Madoa, who has been in hiding with the rest of Jasiri's clan, explains that Zira's invasion of the Pride Lands has already begun. Mzingo arrives and agrees to help, per Jasiri's request.

Just then, Anga spots Zira's son, Kovu, standing on Pride Rock. Zira's daughter, Vitani, arrives with a strange pride of lionesses and launches into battle against the Lion Guard. With the help of Mzingo and his parliament, the Lion Guard manages to distract Vitani's scout, Tazama. Kion is about to use the Roar of the Elders to finish off Vitani and her pride when Kiara appears with Kovu and explains that the Outsiders have joined the Pride Landers. Though confused, Kion halts his attack.

Anga spots her idol, Hadithi

Back at Pride Rock, Rafiki explains how Zira's pride had changed allegiance due to Kiara and Kovu's intervention. However, Zira had clung to her hatred, and it had destroyed her. The Lion Guard then leaves to greet old friends and family around the kingdom. Anga reunites with her idol, Hadithi.

The next morning, the Lion Guard enters the Lair of the Lion Guard, only to find that Vitani and her pride are already within. Vitani argues that she should lead the Lion Guard, as she is the sister of the future king, but Kion argues that, as the future queen's brother, it is his duty to lead the Lion Guard. Just then, Laini approaches, begging for help, and both Lion Guards rush off to assist her.

During the Keenest of Sight's challenge, Anga struggles to see in the dark

They follow Laini to where Thurston is stuck in a hole. The two Lion Guards argue over who should rescue Thurston, but Azaad merely approaches Thurston and tells him to back out of the hole. Thurston does so, and Kion comments that they must sort out their problems in order to avoid quarreling. Thurston suggests a competition to determine which team is better, and both Lion Guards agree to the challenge.

Later, Rafiki announces the Battle of the Lion Guards to a crowd of Pride Landers. 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.

Beshte loses his competition, but Fuli wins hers. Next, Tazama challenges Anga to find Laini, who is hiding in a dark cave. Anga struggles to see in the dark, allowing Tazama to spot Laini first and win the contest. Afterward, Bunga wins his challenge.

Anga agrees to protect the Tree of Life

Since the two teams have tied, Ono announces that the win will be determined by Kion and Vitani's challenge. Vitani calls for a mashindano, or a physical fight. Kion is appalled and warns her that she does not stand a chance against the Roar, but Vitani asserts that she can be the fiercest without the Roar. This causes Kion to recall Askari's statement that only one who can let go of the Roar can truly master it. Realizing that Vitani is the true leader of the Lion Guard, Kion relinquishes his team's duties to Vitani and her pride. Vitani is then able to use the Roar of the Elders, as she is now the protector of the Pride Lands.

Askari appears in the clouds overhead and praises Kion for his decision. He adds that Kion has truly mastered the Roar, but Kion counters that he is no longer the leader of the Lion Guard. To this, Askari reminds him that the Tree of Life needs the Roar's protection as well. The rest of the Lion Guard agrees to protect the Tree of Life alongside Kion.

Later, Anga attends Kion's wedding to Rani.

Personality and traits

To a stranger, Anga seems cold and hostile, which often results in awkward interactions. She mostly acts stiff and uninterested in goings-on, which leads many to perceive her as unfriendly. However, Anga's friends can see beneath her cold exterior, and realize that she is actually kind, caring, and willing to risk her life to protect the Pride Lands. She can be rather shy, though she often hides it by keeping up her tough act. This facade usually cracks whenever Hadithi, whom she greatly admires, is concerned, as a mention of his name is enough to make her excited.
