Image is covering up some text

Scott Irby-Ranniar as Young Simba in "The Lion King on Broadway" Added by Dbzang is covering up some text. Hamstringarmyies 18:59, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

I don't see it covering anything. It's a thumbnail, so it shouldn't be in direct contact with the article. --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 19:40, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hi folks, The introductory paragraph reads as follows: 

"Simba is the titular protagonist of The Lion Kingand the tritagonist of The Lion King II: Simba's Pride and The Lion King 1½. He is Mufasa andSarabi's son, Nala's mate, Scar's uncle, Kopa andKiara's father, and Kovu's father-in-law."

Simba is Scar's nephew, not Scar's uncle. Would someone please edit the page to show this correction? This is my first time here, and I do not know the protocol, especially insofar as there is a note that the page is "locked" in some way. Thank you.

Hi! As it appears, the problem was fixed. Now, as for the page being locked, It was protected. You'll have to wait one whole week per your joining to edit it. TheNewGuy 34px-BowserPinballSprite.png Thats My Lullaby! 22:24, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

It seems we have a PROBLEM!!!!! D:

WHAT HAPPENED?!?!?! The coding is EVERYWHERE, and I think it's like that because it's in Source mode. I can't switch it back to visual mode, though, because a notice comes up saying that the coding is too complicated for Visual Mode. Any ideas? SuperSaiyanNala Pinned Ya! 14:51, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't know what happened. I was editing just a small thing out, and then this happened. STK 16:05, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

The same thing happened to me to Honeyfur 's talk page D: although she somehow fixed it! (which makes me happy). I would love to help but unfortunately I don't know how to correct those kind of errors :/ *MsIsamisa 16:13, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I fixed it. I don't know why that's been happening and neither do the people at Wikia, but whenever something like that happens, just copy the last normal revision and paste it onto the article. --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 16:31, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much Honeyfur :D *MsIsamisa 16:44, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Honeyfur. It kind of happened when I was editing, but I'm glad it got sorted out. STK 17:48, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
Hakuna Matata, it was an easy fix. :) --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 00:55, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Close Relations

So, I've been thinking that on each character's infobox, the "Close Relations" tab is starting to get super long, especially on the more important pages. I think we should limit it to immediate family, or at least the most important members, and post the rest of the relations under a different tab on the character's page. Does this sound okay to everybody? --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 00:44, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

I like it the way it is.Werebereus 00:46, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
I know, but if you notice, when the infobox stretches way long, it crams the page. See Kopa. His appearance tab is all mushed together because of the length of his infobox. --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 00:59, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. We should have the "important" relationships of Simba to the characters in the movie universe with the exception of Kopa. For example, Simba being a "brief step-brother" to Malka isn't that important, and doesn't make sense. It's either you are a step-brother or not. Can't have it both ways. Also, I am proposing a list to the relations to come off more simpler. What do you do think? Chris14 (talk) 3:51, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

          • Why dont we have immediate relations, then have a link that says more... that links to a giant family tree. We'll put the most probable/confirmed relations and then trivia below.Like kovu possibly being fully adopted, Mohatu possibly not being the royal ruler and separate them by generation
    Werebereus 04:15, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
          • I think the family tree would be confusing, especially if we're going to list probable members, but we should definitely include trivia at the bottom of the list of confirmed members. And I like Chris' idea about changing the infobox style. It's less confusing. --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 01:40, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
            Immediate relations dont include grandparents. It includes mom,dad,mate,siblings, and kids. Instead of one big tree, we could put "THe Pridelands tree" or "The outlands tree" but im in favor of a big tree with a trivia box. Give me a sec and i'll post an example. Nevermind, dont feel like it.Werebereus 02:50, February 6, 2012 (UTC)Wow, they kept all my edits after i had to change my name. Sunshinetug (talk)

    Not exactly the main character

    "Simba is the main protagonist in The Lion King and The Lion King II: Simba's Pride"

    Although I haven't seen the second movie in years, I don't really know if I would agree on calling Simba the main character of the sequel. Simba doesn't have enough screen time nor dialogue on the second film as to call him the protagonist. -- SiberianDante (talk|contributions) 8:06, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

    Well, actually, he kind of does. So please just leave it, okay? -- TheSitcomLover 5:39pm, January 24, 2013 (UTC)

    Besides, there is proof he is the main character of the sequel. Proof #1: His name is in the title. Proof #2: He is shown up front on the covers for the sequel. Proof #3: His voice actor's name Matthew Broderick always comes first in the cast sections. -- TheSitcomLover 5:40pm, January 24, 2013 (UTC)

          • This is not proof that he is the main character. For example, in the movie Saving Private Ryan, Ryan is not the main character, yet his name is in the movie title. As for the cover, Kiara is in the direct center. Simba is more like an authority figure watching over her. And as I've said before, often the high-paying actors get first list on the credits. That's usually the way listing goes for films. --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 00:46, April 13, 2013 (UTC)

    Sorry, but he just appeared to be the main protagonist to me. And other people say so as well. His name is in the title, plus he is first in line on the cover before Kiara, who is the second next to Simba. -- TheSitcomLover 3:06pm, April 16, 2013 (UTC) 

    Simba would be the secondary protagonist for Simba's Pride. That sounds the most accurate, at least. SandraSnowleopard We Are One! 05:25, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

    No. Like I said before, everyone, Simba is obviously the true main protagonist as his name is still in the title, nonetheless, and he is first in line before Kiara on the VHS cover! -- TheSitcomLover 3:01, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

          • That has nothing to do with who the main protagonist is. In Saving Private Ryan, Ryan is not the protagonist, despite his name being in the title. The same goes for Simba. --Honeyfur 11:39, November 22, 2013 (UTC)

          • Just found this post (Might make a great main-page poll like the Who shot first in Star wars debate XD), I've seen the movie 1,000,000 times, and after all those watches, I've seen more and more shots of Kiara and like around 20-some lines for Simba, the rest go out to Kiara and Kovu. So Simba would be considered a secondary protagonist. TheNewGuy 34px-BowserPinballSprite.png Thats My Lullaby! 14:16, November 22, 2013 (UTC)
            Also, I used to have the main cover but i lost it...Any ways, Proof:SimbaspridedvdbackcoverSo, this debate is rhetoric. And, To defined Rhetoric: Meaning you already knew the answer...

    So there seems to be absolutely no reason to drag this on. TheNewGuy 34px-BowserPinballSprite.png Thats My Lullaby! </li>

    Eye Color again

    Geez, I'm on a roll, aren't I? XD ;o; Turns out TLK has more eye color changes than I realized XD Okay, so, Simba's eyes change between orange and red as a cub, but I don't think they do as an adult that much. Although, they don't seem to change in 1 1/2, remaining red, but, like not as red? Both TV series have them as red.

    I don't wanna do the infobox thing again SO I was thinking maybe "Red, orange" or "Red, orange (cub)". I wouldn't bring it up but the arguably most IMPORTANT scene in the WHOLE MOVIE had his eyes very orange, sooo :P XD Sometimes young Simba's eyes are like solid black but I don't think that should count tbh. Sorry for like the fourth request in a row, but thank you very much for reading them. :) Madness is like gravity, all it takes is a little push. 18:22, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

    Infobox picture

    So while I think the current infobox image for adult Simba portrays his personality and fur colors well, I also think it doesn't show enough of his body. I scoured Disney Screencaps looking for a potential new image, and I think I found a couple contenders. Any thoughts on these? Personally, out of the five, I like (Simba 1), (Simba 2), and (Simba 5). 🌷Peony🌷 15:11, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

    Simba 1
    Simba 2
    Simba 3
    Simba 4
    Simba 5

    That's a good point about the body shot. I personally like Simba 4. I think the lighting is good, and you can see his features well. --Honeyfur 17:55, April 28, 2019 (UTC)
    All right, that one works too. Thanks! 🌷Peony🌷 12:37, April 30, 2019 (UTC)
    • Isn't number 4 already his infobox photo or am I crazy? He looks thick in the first photo. Number 2 isn't bad either it's kind of dark though. I like number four the best too, even though I'm currently convinced it's the same as it is now, lol.   Shay 24px-Simba_Drawing.png Talk   
    The current photo is a head shot of Simba in the jungle. Simba 4 is a body shot of Simba at the end of the film. --Honeyfur 17:53, April 30, 2019 (UTC)

    Simba's adult profile image

    I'd like to recommend this image as Simba's profile image as an adult. I think his face is shown more clearly here.

    --Frost190 (talk) 15:04, October 24, 2019 (UTC)

    My issue with the image is the lighting. It’s best to find a photo where it’s daylight, and the character’s colors are clearly shown. --Honeyfur 15:15, October 24, 2019 (UTC)
