To take over the Pride Lands



Army of Scar, attack!

The Army of Scar is a large group of Outlanders led by the spirit of Scar. They wish to take over the Pride Lands. The army is formed when Janja and Ushari revive Scar’s spirit. They are then assigned to get more recruits. After Scar's defeat, the army is disbanded and lives under the rule of Jasiri.


The Lion Guard

"The Rise of Scar"

Janja and Ushari summon Scar's spirit in the caldera of the volcano.

"Let Sleeping Crocs Lie"

Kiburi and his float join Scar's army

Shupavu and Njano report to Scar that Kiburi has called for a mashindano with Makuu. Scar is delighted with this turn of events and decides to use the mashindano as a way to assassinate Simba, since all the Pride Landers will be distracted. Ushari convinces Kiburi that he should be in charge. However, Kiburi fails the mashindano, as the Lion Guard thwarts his allies' attempt to murder Simba. In response to Kiburi's treachery, Simba banishes him and his float to the Outlands.

Once in the Outlands, Kiburi blames Ushari for his predicament, but Ushari leads him to Scar, who allows the crocodiles to join his army.

"Swept Away"

The skinks lead Beshte into a trap

When Beshte finds himself lost in the Outlands, he is approached by Shupavu and her skink allies. They feign friendship with him and learn that he is hoping to return to the Pride Lands. Scar orders his army to trap Beshte and take him out for good. The skinks lead Beshte into a trap, where Janja, Cheezi, and Chungu attempt to crush him with boulders. However, the Lion Guard arrives in time to save Beshte, foiling Scar's plans.

"Rescue in the Outlands"

Scar tells Janja to contact the jackals, as he believes they should join the army. Not long after this, Janja complains about a hyena named Jasiri who is friends with Kion. This prompts Scar to order her removal from the Outlands. Janja attempts to destroy Jasiri by dropping her into a pit of lava, but she is saved by the Lion Guard.

"The Bite of Kenge"

Kenge faces off with the Lion Guard

Janja and his clan attempt to steal tikiti melons from the elephants of the Pride Lands, but the Lion Guard thwarts their efforts. The hyenas return to Scar, and Ushari sends his friend, Kenge the monitor lizard, to help them. Kenge uses his paralyzing bite to cripple the Lion Guard. However, Bunga is immune to the venom and uses this to his advantage. With the help of Makini, he defeats Kenge and his hyena allies, and returns the melons to the Pride Lands.

"The Morning Report"

Under Scar's orders, Janja and his clan capture Zazu and hold him prisoner in a bone cage in the Outlands. They interrogate him about Simba, including his strengths, weaknesses, and allies. Zazu dodges their questions until Kion and the Lion Guard arrive and rescue him.

"The Little Guy"

Kiburi and his float allow Hodari the gecko to join their ranks. From Hodari, they learn the fighting styles of Makuu and his float, which they use to their advantage. However, Hodari betrays Kiburi and joins Makuu's float instead.

"Divide and Conquer"

Scar realizes that Rafiki may be able to hear him. He sends members of his army, including the hyenas and the jackals, to take out Rafiki. However, Rafiki defends himself effectively with the help of the Lion Guard, defeating Scar's army.

"The Scorpion's Sting"

Scar introduces his army to Sumu the scorpion, his newest follower

Scar plots with his army in the Outlands to defeat both Simba and the Lion Guard. He explains to his followers that he will be using Sumu the scorpion to take down Simba. He then relishes the irony of taking the day of the Kumbuka celebration and making it into the day that he defeated Simba and the Lion Guard.

Each faction of the army attempts, one by one, to slow the Lion Guard's progress

Later, Scar gets word of Sumu's success and directs his army to intercept the oncoming Lion Guard. The plan works, with Kiburi, Reirei, Janja, and their respective gangs slowing down the Lion Guard's progress through the Outlands. At last, the Lion Guard reaches the inner volcano, where Makini places a pinch of the cure, volcano ash, in her gourd.

As the team turns to leave, Scar arises from the flames and reveals himself to Kion, admitting his part in the plan to kill Simba. Despite Scar's admission, Kion directs his team to leave, as he is worried about arriving too late to save his father. Scar then calls his army forward, and they corner the Lion Guard at the edge of the lava.

Scar rallies his army against the Lion Guard

With no option left, Kion steps forward to use the Roar of the Elders. Scar tries to warn Kion that his roar will only cause the volcano to erupt, but Kion informs Scar that he knows more about the roar than Scar ever did. He then uses the roar carefully to blow away Scar's army, and the Lion Guard makes a quick escape.

Scar sends Mzingo and his parliament after the Lion Guard, and the vultures nearly wrestle the gourd from Makini. 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. At the same moment, Scar overlooks his defeated army and comments that the war has only just begun.

"The Kilio Valley Fire"

After Kilio Valley is devastated by a fire, Scar orders his army to inhabit the valley, asserting that his plan is to take over the Pride Lands bit by bit.

"Undercover Kinyonga"

The army looks on as Scar tasks Janja's clan with carrying out his latest plot - cutting off one of the Pride Lands' main water sources.

"The Zebra Mastermind"

While the Janja, Reirei, and Kiburi speak with Scar, their minions find and gather unhelpful advice from Thurston. Later the Outlanders try to punish Thurston for leading them astray, but the Lion Guard comes to rescue Thurston.

"The Hyena Resistance"

Scar orders his army to repeatedly attack multiple areas of the Pride Lands. However, Jasiri and her Hyena Resistance continually thwart each attack. Scar soon realizes what's going on and orders his army to launch a full attack on Jasiri's clan. They are ultimately defeated by Kion, who uses his Roar of the Elders.

"Beshte and the Beast"

Scar sends the army on repeated attacks so as to trick Shujaa into destroying more of the Pride Lands. Eventually, the army is repulsed for good by Shujaa and the Lion Guard.

"Pride Landers Unite!"

Scar decides to attack Makuu's watering hole since the crocodiles' alliance with Kion is fraying. The Army of Scar, including Janja and his clan, besieges Makuu's float. Ono witnesses the battle and reports his findings to Kion. Together, the Lion Guard and their Pride Lander allies storm the watering hole and fight off the Army of Scar.

"The Queen's Visit"

The Army of Scar surrounds Dhahabu

Dhahabu, the queen of the Back Lands, arrives in the Pride Lands to discuss a water treaty between the kingdoms ("Prance With Me"). Scar's lackeys, Shupavu and Njano, spy on the proceedings. In the Outlands, Shupavu and Njano inform Scar of Dhahabu's visit to the Pride Lands. Scar schemes to end the treaty between the two kingdoms and sends Reirei and her pack after Dhahabu.

Across the savanna, Ono discovers that Dhahabu is being set upon by the jackals. Together with Raha and Starehe, the Lion Guard rushes to the rescue and fights off the pack.

Not long after, Dhahabu is freshening up in a water hole when the jackals attack again, this time with crocodile allies. Ono informs the Lion Guard of the predicament, and Raha and Starehe race off to defend their queen.

"The Fall of Mizimu Grove"

At Mizimu Grove, Rafiki and Simba announce Makini's mpando mpaya, and Timon and Pumbaa perform their song ("Tujiinue"). In the midst of the celebration, the Army of Scar attacks, and the Pride Landers rise up to defend themselves. The battle pauses when Scar appears in the flames and threatens to overtake the entirety of the Pride Lands. Frightened by Scar's unexpected appearance, the remaining Pride Landers flee Mizimu Grove.

"Fire from the Sky"

Scar sends Mzingo's parliament to drop fire sticks on the Pride Lands. The vultures are thwarted by the efforts of Ono, Anga, and Hadithi.

"Battle for the Pride Lands"

After several months of the army attacking the Pride Lands, Simba decides to invade the Outlands with a force of Pride Landers in order to stop them once and for all. Janja, whose clan has been assigned to guard Killio Valley, begins to contemplate betraying the army, only to be overheard by the skinks as they are returning with news of the invasion. With both pieces of news, Scar sends Janja's clan to provide a distraction, while also giving him false information about how Kion can defeat him. On Scar's orders, the hyenas lure the Lion Guard into the Lair of the Lion Guard, only for them all to become trapped by a fire set by the rest of the army.

Soon afterwards, the army meets the Lion Guard-led invasion force, which includes Janja's clan. The army battles the Pride Landers, and are eventually defeated, giving Kion enough time to invade the volcano to confront Scar. After Scar is banished by the Great Kings of the Past, and Ushari falls to his death in the lava below, Jasiri becomes the ruler of the Outlands. The army disperses, with each group going its own way.
