Fanact picture

The fanart picture is the only pic we got. i think we should use it. --Axx1000 06:37, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh well, we may have no pictures, but fan-art isn't official art, and thus shouldn't be put onto a Wiki or Wikia unless said Wiki/Wikia is dedicated to the fandom, rather than the actual thing. ~~Takoto 09:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Honestly, I think both of you are right; fan art isn't really "professional", per say, yet, I've been to a lot of other wikis, and there's fan art used on them, too. For now, we should keep the fan art up. But, Takoto, if you really disagree with the fan art, we can discuss it more in depth. Maybe a forum would be better, though. ;) --HoneyfurBob's Your Uncle! 17:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

The more i think about it im starting to agree to go without the picture. I guess i whould have to go with whats cannon, because we dont know what see looks like its impossible to tell. i guess im one of the people who believe that she looks like she was in the picture but because its not cannon im going to change my vote to no fanart --axx1000 18:18, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Alright; I guess we'll have to go through all the pages, and clean them out of fan art. But, we may need to create an image, that represents "No Image", and put it on image-less pages. Maybe words, maybe a picture....we'll have to figure it out. Does that make sense? --HoneyfurBob's Your Uncle! 20:40, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

"Queen" Uru

It isn't quite clear if she was indeed the Queen.

It's possible, but not clearly stated as so.

[Side Note: A Lion Pride typically consists of 1-3 males on average and the rest are lioness's along with any cubs they may have, and a few adolesent males.]

Uru's Appearance

I think we have enough information to accurately guess Uru's appearanceWerebereus 01:54, May 7, 2011 (UTC)Werebereus

We don't really know for sure. Scar could've inherited his dark coloring from a grandparent. --HoneyfurBob's Your Uncle! 02:45, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Lions don't inherit fur color from grandparents or mane colors. This has never been shown in the TLK universe. Only Eye color can come from grandparents.

Uru's fur HAD to be dark as Ahadi's fur is clearly a dusky gold. The books have dulled Mufasa and Scar's colors considerably. By Editing the picture to closely mimic the film's color is how I know this. Compare Movie Mufasa with my edited version.


Note: Mufasa's colors will darken when he ages

Either way you look at it his fur was gold, since Mufasa's are gold and when put Side by Side Ahadi is simply a duskier gold than Mufasa. With this information I conclude Uru probably had green eyes and outlander traits.Werebereus 15:17, May 7, 2011 (UTC)Werebereus

I totally agree with you about her being darker-colored, but speculation is speculation. If you want, we can put it in her trivia, but we should leave it out of her appearance tab. --HoneyfurBob's Your Uncle! 18:32, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Uru, Scar, and Mufasa

I fail to understand why the trivia section of the page calls into question Uru's role as mother to Taka/Scar. The book never gives any indication either way -- true. But it also gives no indication about Mufasa being her son either. There's nothing showing Scar is any less hers than Mufasa is purported to be, so why even speculate on whether Scar is or not? If we're going to call her relationship to Scar into question, then it follows that Mufasa may not ber hers either. So I guess my question is why we place that bit of speculation in there at all? Isn't that the realm of fanfiction? We could put her relationship to both of Ahadi's son is unclear, but saying only Scar might not ber her son isn't logical based on anything in the book. Both are unclear or neither are, I say. Rinjapine 17:57, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Yes their is. Rafiki calls her Kopa's great grandmother, which confirms that relation. It isn't under the realm of fanfiction, its just another thing in the TLK fandom made unclear. Sure you can believe she's Scar's mother, but you have no proof backing that up. [1] Werebereus 19:39, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
But that's my point -- there isn't ANYTHNG in the book to question Scar's being her son. So speculation that Scar is not Uru's IS fan theory. There's no reason to even suggest it. If you want to make it so she's not, then YES you are backed up because it's never explicitly said, but that doesn't mean that there was any intent NOT to make her both boys' mom. So fan-theory-speculation like that -- is it something that should even be stated on here? If you had a line in the book calling Scar's relationship to Uru into question, I'd go along with it, but there isn't. No one says that Scar is only Mufasa's half-brother. And why would Ahadi have two mates? If Scar has a different mother, than Ahadi has two mates at the same time (since Uru is still alive, and if Mufasa is hers, then Ahadi would have to have a second mate on the side to get the younger Scar) -- for which there is no evidence. So there's nothing BUT speculation and fan-theory to back up the idea that Scar is NOT Uru's -- which is my whole issue. Rinjapine 20:13, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
I know. Thats why i left you bit in about nothing suggesting there is nothing denying her relation either. ^^. As for Ahadi having two mates...Uru is never said to be his queen and she could very well be a concubine. Maybe Scar's mother died in childbirth or something, but the fact remains there is nothing point towards her being related to him, while we do have proof for Mufasa. Again, there is no one denying this relation.Werebereus 20:18, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
Exactly -- only speculation and fan theory support the Scar-isn't-Uru's. So why put it up at all? We have nothing to base it on fan preferences. Rinjapine 20:22, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
I guess I should clarify this: I take back the problem with having this in the trivia section -- I can see on other pages it's where 'speculation' and maybes' seem to go. What my REAL issue with is putting that speculation directly onto Scar and Uru's pages in their relations, and saying it's only presumed they're related. We have no reason to assume not from any story context -- as stated before -- so shouldn't the speculation that she may NOT be Scar's mom be kept to the trivia rather than spilling over into the actual page? I mean,it's no different than what you guys do for the Zira thing -- you state in the trivia that she may be Scar's mate, but since there isn't anything in SP to prove it, you don't list it in relations. SO since there's nothing in the book to give creedance to Uru NOT being Scar's mom, shouldn't that speculation be confined to the Trivia sectioon? 'Rinjapine 20:30, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
Well we aren't presuming she isn't, we're presuming she is. Also, the only reason Zira's relation with Scar haven't spilled into the article is because Honeyfur has it locked. Otherwise, i'd've certainly put it in the infobox. She sure as hell had no problem putting down she was just a follower in the main article. Besides, things like that aren't trivial and shouldn't be down there anyway, i feel.Werebereus 20:47, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
You see, that's my problem, too. If we're mentioning it in the trivia - and even that's a stretch - why do you feel it necessary to mislead and confuse our readers by questioning Uru's relation to Scar? If there's no reason to discredit her role as his mother, why bring it up at all, and in the official article for that matter? --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 21:24, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
That's how I feel, Honeyfur. It's pure speculation to discredit her as the mother. Ahadi even says "his mate" is off searching for water -- not "one of his mates" or "his mistress" or anything like that to shed doubt on her being his sole mate. We don't even have any other official character in the TLK series that has more than one mate. Thus there's no reason to think she's NOT Scar's mother as well. You could build a case for her not being his mom for the purposes of fanfiction -- I do not deny this -- but for the book itself you'd really have to stretch the story a lot and put in a ton of "ifs" and "maybes" for it to even be something to consider. Saying she "may be" a concubine, or Ahadi "may have" more than one mate is pure speculation, fan theory, and guessing. Rinjapine 02:55, April 3, 2012 (UTC)
  • shrug*It doesn't matter how many defences you throw up. Neither of you can prove she's the mother. If we can presume she's the queen even though it's never stated, we can presume she's his mother without it ever being stated. Do you two understand? We are heavily leaning in the direction that it's true, but leaving room for doubt because it's never confirmed.Werebereus 16:18, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

I believe she is the real mother of Taka/Scar. (And well, why not)?

The name uru is name of a type of ore dwarfs use to make weapons and armor in the Thor universe. I feel this bit of information is just as important as the other bits of trivia posted on this page, like the meaning behind the name uru. WAVE (talk) 03:41, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Well, not to be rude, but that may be a little too off-focus since this isn't about Thor. That is interesting, but we want to stay specific and on-topic. SandraSnowleopard We Are One! 04:32, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Uru isn't about Thor per-say ether, it is almost an indestructible element used in the Marvel Multiverse which is owned by Disney ;). Anyway if this is to far off topic why is this bit in the trivia?

Quote the word "uru" actually means the suit of diamonds (as in playing cards). The Swahili word for diamonds (the gemstone) is "almasi" (or "almazi"). unquote

I erased it from the trivia is why. You can ask Honeyfur or Chris14 for confirmation though, since I'm not an administrator. SandraSnowleopard We Are One! 21:17, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Uru being "mentioned" in The Lion King

As I said here for Ahadi (last talk), I do not remember hearing Uru mentioned- In what part is she mentioned? Kiara_M249 Asante sana, my squashed banana 17:49, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

I'm guessing it's in Zazu's "Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?" line. Akril (talk) 08:14, May 14, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, then that's where.... Kiara_M249 Asante sana 12:52, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

what happened to the uru page?Flowerfangs435 (talk) 21:54, December 22, 2015 (UTC)

No idea what happened.. But its back to normal now. :)   Shay 24px-Simba_Drawing.png Talk    22:03, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
