Scar is Mufasa's younger brother, and the main antagonist of the 1994 film, The Lion King.


Scar has quite a dishevelled appearance befitting his nature as antagonist of the film. He has a thick black mane which shrouds his face, and he has razor-sharp canines. Scar has deep green pupils, which are surrounded by a sea of yellow. He also has a deep cut on his left eye, indicative of his namesake. Scar's claws are always kept un-retracted, and his skin is a light brownish colour.


Scar has a quite possessive personality, as shown by his manipulative tendencies. He is also shown to be incredibly sarcastic in his tone of voice, as he "accidentally" tells Simba about the Elephant Graveyard, where no lion is allowed to venture alone. Scar reaches the height of his manipulative career when he successfully kills Mufasa and blames his death on Simba.
