|Simba and Nala's cub|
Brown, cream, and gold
Heir of Pride Rock
After Simba becomes the king of the Pride Lands, he takes his betrothed, Nala, as his mate. Together, they have a cub, who is set to inherit the throne after Simba. The royal family hosts a ceremony at Pride Rock, where Rafiki holds the cub atop the promontory for the Pride Landers to see.
- The cub's gender is said to be male in the official novelization for the film.
- This is contradicted by the "Pride Lands Pedia" feature on Disney+, which identifies the cub as Kiara.
