Mufasa is Scar's older brother and the King of Pride Rock. He is Simba's father and Sarabi's husband.


Mufasa has a thick red mane which stretches down from his shoulders. He has a broad nose and deep brown eyes. His fur is a lighter shade of brown than the rest of his body.


Mufasa has a very kind personality to the lions who live in Pride Rock, showing this kindness to all friends of his son. However, he is also fiercely protective of his son Simba, and will go to any lengths to protect him. It is this recessive trait that leads to his downfall by the hands of Scar.
