Kingdom Hearts II
When Simba was a small cub, Mufasa came to Wildebeest Gorge to save him from being crushed by stampeding wildebeests. Although he saved Simba, he had to climb a cliff to exit the gorge. When he got to the top, he was tossed off the cliff by his own brother, Scar, and crushed by the stampede down below. After his death, Scar convinced Simba that it was Simba's fault that Mufasa had died, and encouraged him to run away and never return. Scar then told the other lions that both Mufasa and Simba had died in the stampede, allowing him to take control of the Pride Lands as its new king.
Later, Mufasa appeared to Simba as a spirit to enlighten Simba's courage to take his role as the Pride Land's true king by usurping Scar's leadership, and after Scar is defeated by Simba and Sora, Mufasa shows his gratitude to Sora by opening a new path for him.
Mufasa is the once proud king of the Pride Lands. Mufasa is considered by many animals of the Pride Lands to be the epitome of strength and wisdom. This is especially true for his son, Simba, who is always comparing himself to his great father. Outside of physical prowess, Mufasa is also strong in giving advice and encouragement to the low-self esteemed Simba.
Mufasa is a lion with light orange fur, except for the fur on his belly, the bottoms of his paws, and around his mouth, which is light peach-colored. His mane, which is quite long, is reddish brown. It parts on the right side of the top of his head, not unlike human hair. Mufasa's eyes are red and his sclera are yellow, while his eyebrows are black. His ears a just barely visible poking through his mane. He has ten dark-colored whiskers, five on either side of his upper lip. There is a tuft of reddish brown fur on the tip of his tail.
Mufasa originally appeared in the 1994 film The Lion King. In the film, he appears as the great ruler of the Pride Lands and as Simba's father. He saves Simba and Nala from being killed by Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed. Later, he saves Simba again, this time from a wildebeest stampede. After saving Simba, Scar makes Mufasa fall down from a cliff into the stampede, where he is killed by the wildebeest. Despite his death, Mufasa's spirit finds residence with those of the previous Kings of the Pride Lands, and later appears before Simba in order to guide him towards his destiny by defeating Scar and taking his true place as King of Pride Rock. Following Scar's defeat, Mufasa reminds Simba one last time to remember who he is.
