Oh Endesha.... For those of you who will comment that he should have ran think of this. The lions/lionesses being killed are his family and lifelong friends. He is the future king of the South Lands and he is not a coward- he's doing what he thinks is right. It's his duty. 

a bit of script from Bambi II comes to mind:

Great Prince: Try to feel the forest around you.


Bambi: I don't feel anything.


Great Prince:
 Does playing in the meadow.


Bambi: 
How do you know?


Great Prince: 
I feel it in my hooves. If there was danger, they'd know to stomp, and I'd run to them.


Bambi: But wouldn't you be scared?


Great Prince: 
Perhaps, but I would still run to them. A prince may be afraid, but he can't let fear stop him from acting.

It makes me sad how badly Shenzi didn't want to act, but to protect the ones she loves she had no choice

Sadly, Zira's probably gonna hate her for this.

Must be hard chose between the right thing to do and your duty as leader (at least I think Shenzie act pretty much as the clan leader, even if Scar demanded control over it after Viccha's death) to protect the clan from the madness of a cruel king.

That's why I would prefer to not be in charge of sonething like that in real life, responsabilities are a real thorn in your side sometimes.

I like that even then, Shenzi still would have preferred that Endesha had run away (and likely took Zira with him). It's not that she won't do what Scar told her to, but that doesn't mean she has to enjoy it.


Again, I really don't think she would hesitate or have the same feelings if it was just an ordinary lioness and not Zira, who she knows and might have seen from time to time as she grew up.

But Endesha... I actually was happy for Zira...

Just a constructive critique: You forgot Endesha's beard :)

Naaw, the Bambi quote hurt my heart when you know the outcome is not...ideal.

Shenzi really doesn't want to do this. that much is obvious. if the hyenas had more backbone, they'd just use their forces against Scar. but nope, they're still obeying his every single order. come on, you idiots! he's just one skinny ol' lion! he wont turn into a dragon should you rise against him!

But some hyenas might actually favour scar, and if a few hyenas begin a riot. Even shenzi. Scar can use the hyenas that still like him against the other hyenas. It’s a risky position and anyone could get killed. Scar could literally get the hyenas to throw themselves off a cliff based on how much he controls them.

but there's no concrete proof that some hyenas still like Scar. other than the false hope that he might give them what they want, there's no other reason why someone would still like him. even if there were, i'm pretty sure their number would be much smaller than those who might have gotten fed up with his ways. and i don't think they're worth risking more death and hunger. if anything, i'd like to dub them as traitors for putting their clan through all that pain for the sake of that tyrant.

just saying that if all of them go up against him, that would be the smart thing to do and would most likely save lots of anguish. not even him would be able to fight back by himself or even with what little group that's probably still with him.

They will fight back, once the comic meets up with the rest of the TLK film events, wonder where Zira was, during the uprising. :o (Eek)

Am I the only one who thinks he's not gonna die? At least not YET!? He looks like BOTH Kovu and Vitani's father to me. If he wasn't Kovu's father, why would he be dark (like some of you are thnking Mnyama's gonna be his dad, why would Raven make Endesha dark then?) Unless Raven wants to confuse people XD  But if Endesha does not survive here, well, I'm gonna be sad Waaaah!

I didn't design Endesha, he was a winning contest entry from a while back. It's pretty obvious right now that he'll end up being Nuka's dad, and Nuka has a dark coat too. As for Kovu and Vitani.. I have left a sprinkle of an alternative to explain Vitani's eyes in a past upload from a while back :)
Maltashaastaka's avatar

Ooh, now I'm thinking he might not be Kovu and Vitani's father at all XD That's a shame, I wanted him to be Kovu's dad lol

Well, even if Mnyama isn't their father, it stands to reason that Kovu, Vitani and Nuka have a big distance in terms of age in the timeline, he's an older sibling in the film while they're younger and probably from the same litter, and it's pretty obvious that Endesha's about to die, foreshadow and all, i mean, he's not dead at this moment, I think he'll say some last words to Zira and that'll break her heart, further pushing her to snap for good, she'll give birth to Nuka and feel anger towards him for coming into her life the moment it started falling apart, if the implications that Nuka's father isn't going to be around much longer are true, i'm guessing Zira will have Kovu and Vitani with either Mnyama in some ditch effort to avenge her mother, which ends up backfiring on her, or accidentally gets with his son, to give Scar a better heir than scrawny and weak Nuka, if you compare Kovu and Mnyama side to side, there's a weird resemblance there, so it wouldn't surprise me if it turned out there was some relation between them, and it'd explain why Zira got so crazy and abused her own family, but i guess we'll see. ;) (Wink)

Now that I've learnt that Raven didn't design him herself, I'm starting to think your theory might be true XD
legendaryicebreaker's avatar

Yeah, Endesha's eyes are most likely a red herring, Mnyama's mother has the same blue-violet eyes as Vitani, so, maybe that's a hint? Wink/Razz

It is possible that one of Mnyama's relatives has green eyes since Kovu inherits his dark fur and hair tuft while Vitani has indigo eyes from Mnyama's mom. They are most likely going to be born by the time Nuka is a cub. Who knows if Mnyama is going to die before he gets to see them??!! I know things are about to get worse when Nuka is born.

Scar is where Kovu's eyes comes from I believe. :D (Big Grin) 
Maltashaastaka's avatar

I believe Kovu inherits his green eyes from Scar (regardless of who his father is), because Scar is Kovu's grandfather in this fanon :)

you can just tell that Shenzi really doesn't want to do this, but has no choice at this point
