Zira is the mate of Scar and mother of Nuka, Vitani and Kovu appearing alongside her family and followers in the Disney vs. Non-Disney Villains War and the Disney Villains War. Usually, the deaths of either Scar, Nuka, or both drive her to seek vengeance on another villain responsible for the murder.
She is the main villain of the Disney animated film The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.
Disney Vs Non Disney Villains
Queen of the Pridelands
Zira is unaware that Nuka, hoping for her recognition, has challenged the demonic Red to a fight. Red crushes Nuka with a pile of logs. Zira arrives just in time to see her son die. Enraged, she announces her intention to kill the being responsible for her son's death.
Shere Khan later approaches the distraught Zira, telling her that Red killed Nuka and that the Horned King sent the overconfident lion to Red. Traveling to Egypt, she proposes a brief alliance with the Horned King to eliminate Red; after all, the Horned King is at least partially responsible for Nuka's death. The Horned King agrees to Zira's terms, and the two confront Red. As he grows into full power, Red knocks Zira out. The King enters the fray and uses the Black Cauldron to drag Red to hell. Zira celebrates.
It is presumed that she and Scar take over the Pride Lands for the remainder of the first war.
Disney Vs Non Disney Villains - Part Two
Zira's good fortune comes to an end when Mumm-Ra kills Scar and seizes control of her hyena army. Left with only her small squad of lions, Zira once again announces her intention to kill her family member's killer. Newly accepted into her alliance are Shere Khan and Kaa, though Khan seriously doubts the effectiveness of Zira's leadership. Zira then joins forces with Mirage, once the sorceress enters the Pride Lands. The two swear, in light of their common enemy, to take back the jungle. As Khan grows even more suspicious of Zira's motives, Zira begins to distrust her ally.
Beast Man follows Mirage to the Pridelands, forcing Zira and Shere Khan to try their hand to kill him. After Beast Man leaves Shere Khan hanging off a cliff, Zira tears through some trees in an attempt to crush the warrior. Beast Man flees, but Khan nearly regains his grip. Seeing a way to do away with her less-than-loyal comrade, she knocks Shere Khan off the cliff. She then knocks a boulder down the cliff with him, crushing the tiger as he gets up. To replace Khan, she hires the gorilla, Tublat.
Death in the Spirit Realm
Zira and Mirage enter the spirit realm in hopes of killing Mumm-Ra once and for all. When the mummy emerges, Zira attacks him with a flurry of wild claw strikes. He dodges all of them and transforms into Mumm-Ra the Everliving. This new form effortlessly blasts Zira off a cliff. Zira hangs on for dear life but gradually loses her hold. She is pleased, however, to see Scar return, having been wandering the spirit realm in Limbo. She lets herself drop, satisfied with seeing her mate one last time.

After the death of Scar at the hands of McLeach, Zira takes it upon herself to track down and kill the hunter. She has her lions surround McLeach's hauler, forcing him to get out of the vehicle. Though McLeach ends up shooting one of her lions, Zira sees her chance as McLeach takes aim. She pounces and knocks McLeach into the Nile river, right before a conveniently placed waterfall. She satisfies herself with McLeach's screams.
Before Nuka was killed by Alameda Slim, he and Zira plotted to take the sizable territory of a deadly leopard named Sabor. Sabor proved faster than Zira and would have killed her, had Nuka not saved his mother's life by distracting the leopard. Drawing Sabor up a narrow cliff, Nuka knocked her off to her death, much to Zira's gratitude and delight.
Vs Alameda Slim
On the run after the fall of the Coachman, Alameda Slim found himself in Zira's territory in Africa. Hoping to prove himself as a warrior, Zira's son Nuka attacked the rustler, who responded by causing an avalanche of fallen logs, crushing the young lion to death. Enraged, Zira swore to hunt Slim down and make him pay.
Not caring about the fall of his most loyal minion, Chernabog began laying waste to the mortal world, first interfering as Zira caught up with Alameda Slim, intent on making him pay for murdering her son. Just as she prepared to kill her enemy, the ghost of Scar knocked her aside. Shocked by this attack from her undead mate, Zira was helpless to prevent herself from being tossed into a raging river. Slim rejoiced in his seeming reprieve, only for Pete's ghost to arrive on the scene and suck out his soul.

Vs Maggie,Grace and Mrs.Calloway
Disappointed with Alameda Slim's performance against Timon and Pumbaa, Scar decided to one-up him by disposing of the cows Maggie, Grace, and Mrs. Calloway, who had been pursuing Slim since he had stolen their fellow cattle from the Patch Of Heaven ranch. Eager to be rid of his enemies, Slim agreed to let Scar try, but Scar had something different in mind. Rather than attack the cows himself, he ordered his mate Zira to do the deed. As Maggie and her friends entered the Pride Lands on Slim's trail, a rainstorm broke out, causing the tracks to wash away. Just then, Zira and a pride of lions loyal to her and Scar approached, threatening the three cows. They fled, but soon found they were completely surrounded. Maggie then decided to take the offensive and rammed into a lioness, knocking her down. As Maggie was about to take on Zira, a bolt of lightning struck a tree branch which fell and broke a dam, releasing a flood of water. Zira and her lionesses retreated to high ground, but the cows were caught in the flood. Fortunately, they managed to swim to safety as Zira looked on, vowing to kill them they next time they met.
Vs Tarzan and Mowgli
Returning to the Pride Lands, Ratcliffe and McLeach told Clayton they had concocted a scheme to punish him for double-crossing them and advance Scar's plot to play Tarzan and Simba against each other, all at the same time. To this end, Yzma and Zira arrived and explained that Scar wanted it to appear that Simba and the lions had launched an unprovoked attack on gorilla territory. To make the illusion possible, Yzma used one of her potions to transform Clayton into a lion with the appearance of Simba. With Ratcliffe and McLeach satisfied, Clayton and Zira set out. Clayton and Zira arrived at the gorilla nesting grounds with Zira's lioness militia. However, Mowgli and his friends had also arrived, seeking refuge from Scar's attacks. Thinking fast, Mowgli knocked sand into Clayton's face, stunning him. As Zira pursued Mowgli, Tarzan jumped in to face Clayton. Bagheera tried to protect Mowgli, but Zira knocked him aside. As Clayton tried to join the fray, Baloo tackled him, knocking him to the ground. Tarzan and the other heroes assembled, presenting a united force against Clayton and Zira. Realizing that they had lost the element of surprise and the battle, the lions retreated, but the job had been done. Tarzan swore that any further incursions into gorilla territory would be met with lethal force.
Although there were some setbacks along the way, Scar and Shere Khan's plot to sow discord between Simba and Tarzan went largely according to plan. One final thing needed to be done: they would murder Kerchak, alpha male of the gorilla troop and Tarzan's adoptive father, making it seem as if Simba had ordered the deed. As Zira's lions attacked a group of female gorillas, Kerchak emerged from the bushes to defend them. Shere Khan pounced on the mighty ape, but Kerchak caught him in midair and threw him back. Scar lept in from behind, knocking Kerchak down, but he recovered and pinned Scar to the ground. Noticing Khan coming around for another attack, Kerchak charged at the others but Zira slashed him as he approached, knocking him to the ground again. Mowgli, Timon, and Pumbaa, hearing the commotion, came to investigate as Scar ordered the hyenas to finish the job. Kerchak was no match for the sheer number of hyenas and was brutally mauled, despite Timon and Pumbaa knocking a few aside. Zira and Khan attacked the meddling duo, knocking them into the waiting coils of Kaa. Mowgli tried to escape and warn Simba of what was happening, but Kaa caught up to him and hypnotized him, taking him and the others off to eat. Scar, Khan, and the other villains left the mortally wounded Kerchak for Tarzan to find.
Battle with Forces of Nature
At the same time, Zira attacked the Patch of Heaven cows, hoping to avenge her previous humiliation. As Mrs. Calloway charged at Zira, Zira delivered a vicious swipe, knocking her hat off her head. Enraged, Mrs. Calloway beat Zira back, causing her and her lionesses to flee.
Herded into the center of the jungle by their attackers, the heroes were confronted by Zira and Amos Slade.The shot missed Tod, but caused a rockslide that buried Nuka and the hunting dogs. Stunned, Zira rushed to her son's side, but was too late. Nuka died in his mother's arms.Slade shouted at her to move, but Zira turned and attacked him in a rage. Brutally mauling Slade and knocking him into one of his own bear-traps, Zira was stopped by Copper when he came to his master's defense, but she turned her attention to him. Unwilling to let his old friend die, Tod turned and came to help, standing between Zira and Copper. Seeing that she was outnumbered, Zira decided to retreat.
Pact with Ratclifee
Meanwhile, Ratcliffe managed to make it to shore in the wake of his defeat, and was confronted by Zira, who blamed him for setting the events that led to her son's death into motion. Ratcliffe pleaded for his life, and Zira agreed to spare him in exchange for a future favour. As Ratcliffe went into hiding, Zira departed with her youngest cub, Kovu.
