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

After Scar defeats Scar Snout, he announces a plan to Zira to conquer the world. This plan never comes to fruition, though the lions seize near full control of Africa.

Swearing Revenge

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.

Vs Red

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.

Scar's Death

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.

A Traitor

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.

Vs Mcleach

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.

Vs Sabor

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.

The Rise of Kraven

When Kraven the Hunter enters Africa, he fights a brief battle with Scar. Scar ends up humiliated in the fight, though he does escape with his life. With his pride wounded, Scar has Zira and Nuka hire Anansi to eliminate the now genetically modified Kraven. Unfortunately for the lions, Anansi fails.
