Why were these guys even villains? The lions ate their parents and expect them to live in a foodless shithole.
They're villains for wanting to not starve to death?

Wait, what?

The play

Thats like asking me to feel sorry for Nicholas Cage in "Gone In 60 Seconds"... im supposed to feel bad that a car thief has his daughter kidnapped???? Way to go Dad. Fuck that...

Because European royalty thought Lions would look better on their flags/shields/emblems
>>
Because historically hyenas have always been seen as ugly, witches, dirty, stupid, gluttonous scavenging hermaphrodites that would feast on human corpses.

As much as hyenas are way better than lions, what other animal would fit in the role as villain henchmen? Hyenas really are lions only real competition and any other real danger to lions are herbivores. A cackling zebra isn't as intimidating as a hyena.

It definitely fits, it just seems weird they didn't even give a halfassed reason for why all hyenas are banished.

Hyenas killed everything in sight, yhey didnt respected the cycle of life, and thats why they were banned.

Also, they attempted to kill kids.

Seriously, why you defend kid murderers?
>>
They had very sound motives, but then again most good villains have. You could say that the lions bully everyone else into submission and enforcing their monarchy but the hyenas didn't do anything different.
There can't be peaceful coexistance with everyone being happy and fed so someone has to starve, and since the main characters are bright and funny and the antagonists are dark and ugly we root and jeer accordingly.
>>
It seemed like there were much more hyena's than lions, they could have easily overrun them. Their crime was being stupid, which is why lions didn't want them in the Pride Lands to begin with as they would overhunt and disrupt the circle of life.

They killed kids and ate everything indiscriminately, unlike lions who preserved the circle of life.

>>78012396
Lions are the animals incredibly well known for killing each others children.

>>78012095
Lion King is not a smart movie.

>>78012357
Don't over think it. You know how t-rexes are usually the villains in any dinosaur-related anything? It's like that. They're just evil because.

>>78012396
>Hyenas killed everything in sight
They never outright said that but I remember Zazu calling them mangy poachers. The new shit show The Lion Guard also has the hyenas straight up going into the pridelands and killing antelopes for fun because 'fuck the circle of life' basically. On top of that, vultures are also banished in the show.

>>78012565
>preserving the circle of life
>by getting rid of an extremely important part of the ecosystem
Look at India. They are having a crisis because they fucked over their vultures thats costing them billions.
>>
>>78012095
The hyenas disproportionately support shit leaders who will wreck the country, fuck them.
>>
>>78012590
Yeah well that doesn't happen here because this is a FICTIONAL STORY working off of themes and ideas not actual animal behavior
>>
>>78012738
>getting rid of them

The hyenas still existed, just in reasonable number. They were gluttonous and wanted more than they got.
>>
>>78012095
Scar was the villain, they were just antagonists/
