Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... Well, I shall never be king. And you shall never see the light of another day. Adieu.
―Scar toys with a mouse[src]

Scar: Oh, now look, Zazu. You've made me lose my lunch.
Zazu: Ha! You'll lose more than that when the king gets through with you. He's as mad as a hippo with a hernia.
Scar: Oooh, I quiver with fear!
—Scar and Zazu on Simba's presentation[src]

Why, if it isn't my big brother descending from on high to mingle with the commoners!
―Scar taunts Mufasa[src]

Mufasa: Sarabi and I didn't see you at the presentation of Simba.
Scar: That was today? Oh, I feel simply awful! Must have slipped my mind.
Zazu: Yes, well, as slippery as your mind is, as the king's brother, you should have been first in line!
Scar: Well, I was first in line...until the little hairball was born!
—Scar feigns innocence to Mufasa[src]

Mufasa: That hairball is my son...and your future king.
Scar: Oh, I shall practice my curtsy.
—Scar taunts Mufasa[src]

Mufasa: Don't turn your back on me, Scar.
Mufasa: Oh, no, Mufasa. Perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me.
—Scar and his brother, Mufasa[src]

Mufasa: Is that a challenge?!
Scar: Temper, temper. I wouldn't dream of challenging you.
—Scar and his brother, Mufasa[src]

Well, as far as brains go, I got the lion's share, but when it comes to brute strength...I'm afraid I'm at the shallow end of the gene pool.

Simba: Hey, Uncle Scar, guess what?
Scar: I despise guessing games.
—Scar and his nephew, Simba[src]

Well, forgive me for not leaping for joy. Bad back, you know.

Simba: Hey, Uncle Scar. When I'm king, what'll that make you?
Scar: A monkey's uncle.
Simba: You're so weird.
Scar: You have no idea.
—Scar and his nephew, Simba[src]

Scar: So, your father showed you the whole kingdom, did he?
Simba: Everything.
Scar: He didn't show you what's beyond that rise at the northern border...?
Simba: Well, no. He said I can't go there.
Scar: And he's absolutely right. It's far too dangerous. Only the bravest lions go there.
—Scar tricks Simba[src]

Scar: Simba, Simba, I'm only looking out for the well-being of my favorite nephew.
Simba: Yeah, right. I'm your only nephew.
—Scar and his nephew, Simba[src]

An elephant graveyard is no place for a young prince.
―Scar tricks Simba[src]

Scar: Oh, dear, I've said too much. Well, I suppose you'd have found out sooner or later, you being so clever and all. Oh, just do me one favor: Promise me you'll never visit that dreadful place!
Simba: No problem.
Scar: There's a good lad. You run along now and have fun. And remember... It's our little secret.
—Scar tricks Simba[src]

Oh, surely we lions are not all that bad.
―Scar, after the hyenas taunt lions[src]

I’m surrounded by idiots.

Scar: I don't think you really deserve this. I practically gift-wrapped those cubs for you, and you couldn't even dispose of them.
Shenzi: Well, ya know. It wasn't exactly like they was alone, Scar.
Banzai: Yeah! What are we supposed to do, kill Mufasa?
Scar: Precisely.
—Scar plots with the hyenas[src]

Scar: Now you wait here. Your father has a marvelous surprise for you.
Simba: Oooh, what is it?
Scar: If I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise, now would it?
—Scar lures Simba to the gorge[src]

This is just for you and your daddy. You know, a sort of father-son...thing...
―Scar to Simba on the stampede[src]

Scar: You wouldn't want to end up in another mess like you did with the hyenas...
Simba: You know about that?
Scar: Simba, everybody knows about that.
Simba: Really?
Scar: Oh, yes. Lucky Daddy was there to save you, eh?
—Scar and his nephew, Simba[src]

Oh, and just between us, you might want to work on that little roar of yours. Hmm?
―Scar to his nephew, Simba[src]

Simba: Hey, Uncle Scar, will I like the surprise?
Scar: Simba, it's to die for.
Scar and Simba, shortly before the stampede[src]

Mufasa, quick! Stampede. In the gorge. Simba's down there!
―Scar lures Mufasa to the gorge[src]

Long live the king.
―Scar, moments before he throws Mufasa to his death[src]

Simba...what have you done?
―Scar blames Simba for Mufasa's death[src]

Simba: There were wildebeests, and he tried to save me. It was an accident! I didn't mean for it to happen!
Scar: Of course, of course you didn't. No one...ever means for these things to happen... But the king is dead. And if it weren't for you, he'd still be alive.
—Scar blames Simba for Mufasa's death[src]

What will your mother think?
―Scar blames Simba for Mufasa's death[src]

Run away, Simba. Run. Run away and never return.

Kill him.
―Scar orders the hyenas to kill Simba[src]

Mufasa's death was a terrible tragedy. But to lose Simba, who had barely begun to live... For me, it is a deep, personal loss. So it is with a heavy heart that I assume the throne. Yet, out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new which lion and hyena come together, in a great and glorious future!
―Scar's eulogy to the grieving pride[src]

Scar: Oh, Zazu, do lighten up. Sing something with a little...bounce in it!
Zazu: It's a small world, after all!
Scar: No! No! Anything but that.
—Scar forces Zazu into servitude[src]

Zazu: Oh, I would never have had to do this for Mufasa.
Scar: What?! What did you say?
Zazu: Oh, nothing!
Scar: You know the law: Never, ever mention that name in my presence. I am the king!
—Scar and his enslaved majordomo, Zazu[src]

It's the lionesses' job to do the hunting.
―Scar to the hyenas when they complain about their hunger[src]

Scar: Zazu!
Zazu: Oh, you wouldn't want me! I'd be so tough and gamey and ewww.
Scar: Oh, Zazu, don't be ridiculous. All you need is a little garnish.
—Scar and his enslaved majordomo, Zazu[src]

Banzai: I thought things were bad under Mufasa.
Scar: What did you say?!
Banzai: I said Muf... I said, uh, "Que pasa?"
Scar: Good. Now, get out.
Banzai: Yeah, but we're still hungry.
Scar: Out!
—Scar and Banzai[src]

Scar: Sarabi! Where is your hunting party? They're not doing their job.
Sarabi: Scar, there is no food. The herds have moved on.
Scar: No! You're just not looking hard enough.
—Scar and Sarabi on the state of the Pride Lands[src]

Scar: We're not going anywhere.
Sarabi: Then you have sentenced us to death!
Scar: Then so be it.
Sarabi: You can't do that!
Scar: I'm the king. I can do whatever I want.
Sarabi: If you were half the king Mufasa was...
Scar: I'm ten times the king Mufasa was!
—Scar argues with Sarabi[src]

Mufasa? No. You're dead.
―Scar mistakes Simba for his father, Mufasa[src]

Simba? Simba! I'm a little surprised to see you...alive.
―Scar reunites with a full-grown Simba[src]

Scar: Oh, Simba, you must understand. The pressures of ruling a kingdom...
Simba: Are no longer yours. Step down, Scar.
Scar: Oh, oh, ye... Well, I would, heh, naturally, heh. However, there is one little problem. You see them? They think I'm king.
—Scar and Simba argue over the throne[src]

Scar: Oh, must it all end in violence? I'd hate to be responsible for the death of a family member. Wouldn't you agree, Simba?
Simba: That's not gonna work, Scar. I've put it behind me.
Scar: Ah, but what about your faithful subjects? Have they put it behind them?
Nala: Simba, what is he talking about?
Scar: Ahhh, so you haven't told them your little secret. Well, Simba, now's your chance to tell them. Tell them who is responsible for Mufasa's death!
—Scar manipulates Simba[src]

Scar: You see? He admits it! Murderer!
Simba: No! It was an accident!
Scar: If it weren't for you, Mufasa would still be alive. It's your fault he's dead. Do you deny it?
Simba: No.
Scar: Then you're guilty!
—Scar manipulates Simba[src]

Oh, Simba, you're in trouble again. But this time, Daddy isn't here to save you! And now everyone...knows...why!

Now, this looks familiar. Hmm. Where have I seen this before? Let me think. Hmm, hmm. Oh, yes, I remember. This is just the way your father looked before he died. And here's my little secret... I killed Mufasa.
―Scar to Simba as he dangles off Pride Rock[src]

Simba: Tell them the truth!
Scar: Truth? But truth is in the eye of the behold... All right. All right! I did it.
Simba: So they can hear you.
Scar: I killed Mufasa!
—Scar when Simba orders him to confess[src]

Simba: Murderer.
Scar: Simba, Simba, please. Please have mercy. I beg you.
Simba: You don't deserve to live.
Scar: But, Simba, I It's the hyenas who are the real enemy. It was their fault. It was their idea!
—Scar and his nephew, Simba[src]

What are you going to do? You wouldn't kill your own uncle...?
―Scar appeals to Simba[src]

Simba: Run. Run away, Scar. And never return.
Scar: Yes. Of course. As you wish...Your Majesty!
Scar and his nephew, Simba[src]

Scar: Oh, my friends!
Shenzi: Friends? I thought he said we were the enemy.
—The hyenas betray Scar[src]

―Scar grabs Simba during his nightmare[src]

Trust me!
―Scar to Simba during his nightmare[src]

The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar!
―Scar emerges from the volcano[src]

Let Sleeping Crocs Lie

Your spies have done well, Ushari. This is very good news indeed. Crocodiles detest the dry season. And they won't easily forgive Simba's son and his Lion Guard for waking them. It could give us an opportunity.

The Lion Guard's mistakes could prove most fortuitous for us. Perhaps it will even lead to the end of Simba's reign.
―Scar plots against the Pride Landers[src]

Scar: Tell me, Ushari. Does the mashindano still attract large crowds of Pride Landers?
Ushari: Yes. Yes, it does.
Scar: Some things never change.
—Scar and Ushari[src]

We needn't do much at all. Kiburi and his crocs will do the dirty work for us. You'd be surprised what can be done while everyone else is distracted by the mashindano. Ushari, I need you to trick Kiburi into thinking he can rule the Pride Lands.

Now, here's the plan I want you to plant in Kiburi's tiny little brain.
―Scar to Ushari[src]

I am much more than a volcano.
―Scar to Kiburi[src]

Don't worry, Kiburi, we're all friends here. I have plans for you and your crocodiles. Big plans indeed!

Swept Away

Chungu: Uh...why do we care?
Scar: Because if the Lion Guard's strongest is alone in the Outlands it's the perfect opportunity to eliminate him!
—Scar and Chungu on Beshte[src]

In case you fools haven't noticed, it's the dry season. Too much sun makes hippos weak. Since Beshte already seems to trust you skinks, we can use that to our advantage. I have a plan.

Rescue in the Outlands

A fearless hyena? Perhaps she should be part of our collective.
―Scar on Jasiri[src]

We cannot have an ally of the Lion Guard here in the Outlands. Get rid of her. Immediately.
―Scar to Janja on Jasiri[src]

And, Janja...don't disappoint me again.

The Bite of Kenge

Yes. Precious water. The Pride Lands' elephants would be vulnerable without those melons. Especially during the dry season.

Go back and take all of the tikiti melons. If the elephants don't have enough water, it will mean the end of their herd! And perhaps the Circle of Life as well.

Ushari. Tell your friend Kenge to pay a visit to the Lion Guard.
