Pride Lands


   Bupu's herd
   Pride Landers

I like to try staying in different parts of the savanna. And this was a great place to live, until someone waving around his giant horns...

Nyuni is a male yellow wagtail.


The Lion Guard

"The Morning Report"

The Lion Guard gathers around Bupu, whose horns are stuck in the branches of a tree. Kion suggests breaking the branch off the tree, to which Bupu reluctantly agrees. However, as Bunga begins to bounce on the branch to weaken it, Nyuni angrily reveals his presence and explains that his nest lies at the end of the branch. Beshte questions Nyuni as to why he had moved his home, and Nyuni explains that he likes to see different parts of the Pride Lands.

Nyuni warns Bupu of a young antelope that is straying from the herd

Kion then gets the idea to have the branch broken off at the end so that Bupu can carry the rest of the branch as well as Nyuni's nest in his horns. Nyuni is excited to be able to see more of the Pride Lands, despite Bupu's initial reluctance, and he is swiftly carried away alongside the rest of the herd.

Later, the Lion Guard approaches Bupu and Nyuni to ask if either of them have seen Zazu, who has gone missing. Both Bupu and Nyuni say no, but just then, Nyuni notices Boboka's son straying from the herd. Bupu thanks Nyuni for noticing this, and he goes after the young antelope.

Personality and traits

Nyuni likes to see different parts of the Pride Lands, and is a born traveler. Although he does not like to be disturbed, Nyuni can prove to be amicable if appealed to his better nature.
