- Rafiki - a wise, out-going mandrill with a baboon-like tail. He is known for holding baby Simba in the air to show to the other Pridelands animals.
- Zazu - a male red-billed hornbill who was Mufasa's majordomo and babysitted Simba and Nala on their adventure to the Elephant Graveyard.
- Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed - a trio of spotted hyenas who are Scar's minions.
- Timon and Pumbaa - a comical meerkat and warthog duo, they first discover Simba out in barren land where he was seemingly dying from his PTSD and cheer him up by having them sing Hakuna Matata and dine on insects.
- Pimon and Tumbaa - The opposites of Timon and Pumbaa. They are muscular, stereotypical bullies who are ordered by Scar to kill Nala, while the hyenas were ordered to kill Mufasa and his son. They chase Nala and Bhati into the wildebeest stampede.
- Prita - a youthful and somewhat impatient male lappet-faced vulture who is sometimes anxious to eat.
- Kobi - Prita's mother who is more patient one and holds her son with one wing.
