Film Theory: Did Scar EAT Mufasa? (The Lion King)
Never miss a Film Theory! ►

Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

    When something dies the first thing that probably gets to it is bugs or other insects And the bugs and stuff probably ate mufasa's corpse and then it might as well be the bugs that simba survived on..... But this is just a theory.... Oh and also the skull that scar was holding looks more like a baboon skull so yeah..... Scar probably didn't eat mufasa....

    . They do not prefer eating other predators' meat. Unless if they are in absolutely desperate times. Another reason why lions do not eat other lions is that they do not provide enough energy.

  • Asma Sarwar

    Do hyenas eat dead lions? . Commonly known as scavenging animals, hyenas eat dead organisms. Yet, hyenas are hunters as well, and they hunt about 80% of their prey.

  • EnderGaming

    Congratulations for 10M!!!!!!!

  • Suvan

    7:45 wait didn’t we see that the kingdom was doing very bad and going through dark times, it’s like they were in desperate times to eat another lion? 9:15 also wasn’t scar kinda a rival of Mufasa

    "That's why you don't believe Disney movies or TikTokers" such a weird thing to say about TikTok makers once you consider that people have said similar things about ISnetsrs. I think anyone on any platform can make good points if their arguments are based in fact lol. If those arguments aren't factual, discuss that, but don't invalidate the entirety of content on the platform. Seems weird and somewhat outdated thinking to me

    So funny thing... Scar doesn't eat Mufasa, the hyenas ate him Scar just plays with his skull

  • Yxng Snoodle

    Also when simba comes back at the end, doesn’t scar say something like “mufasa I thought you were dead” and if scar had eaten him, he wouldn’t even think that it could’ve been mufasa, as he’d have eaten him

  • Una Broady-Davis

    I completely agree with MatPat on this theory but... I'm just a little skeptical because this video was posted on April Fool's Day....

    U saw the tik tok and then u came here for further clarification right

    hello im new but didn't the hyenas eat scar too sowe already know that hyenas eat lions so they eated Mufasa and scar

  • Pratima Heisnam

    I search that but Google say like this. "lions don't eat other lions"

  • OnyxTh3Ripqer

    The skull is simply too small. Lions do have a lot of fur and skin, but their skulls aren't small enough to be held by the claws of another lion. That's just not possible. (Or if maybe it was just a lion cub the hyenas ate?) (OR- the body might have been taken away and buried (or left there) against Scar's orders.)

  • OnyxTh3Ripqer

    1:28 That actually says "Maypat". Maypat is Matpat in another runiverse. The genderswap.

    Oh my goodness thank you, I watched the TikTok and it pissed me off how wrong they were and everyone in the comments is like “lion king is ruined” uhhhh I’m glad someone could use their brain and see how ridiculous this is.

  • Kyo

    Bro it’s a Disney movie not real life scar could’ve been hungry and ate him


    And I hate I hate I hate tik tok

  • xXMilliePlaysXx

    Since that was probably a baboon skull could that mean that Scar ate one of Rafiki’s relatives?


    And my Disney store plushies and Lion King Broadway 🎭 Scar Mask and plushie


    And my figurine of him is beautiful Both my handmade air dry clay figurines And my Walt Disney classics collection Jim shore Disney traditions and my classic old old ceramic figurine of him


    I’m not sorry


    And he’s everybody’s favourite Disney Villain And he’s a borderline transvestite Frank N Furter Impersonator And personally I wouldn’t have him any other way Jeremy irons scar is MY SCAR Chiwetels was abysmal

    It's is actually unclear if scar did or not eat mufasa I'm mean if it was contrary part of that scene when scar is looking at skull of what could be mufasa head or it could be the head of another lion that scar could have known

    Well, Hyenas do you eat the baby lion but usually do not attack adult lions. But when they do they will hunt in larger packs. The rogue lions will eat other lions only baby lions

  • Victoria Scott Home

    Umm… that’s a baboon skull, and, based on the fact this show was created because of Hamlet, it’s likely the skull of his jester.

    Alright guys, Here we go sorry to do this. But look at the skull and the comparative pictures at 3:48. Look at the brow ridge above the eye sockets then look at the comparative lion's skull. Felines don't have a brow ridge like that, primates do. Lions also don't have flattened molars. Primates do. That's a baboon skull

  • Der Flamingo

    If you dont consider the ,,its not a lion skull" bit, you have to keep in mind: lions are just animals with no connection to their victims, but Scar is one of the most evil Characters of Disney and kinda hated Mufasa. I don't think he would let anyone eat him, besides himself, just out of pure spite. Scar would be probably the most brutal Villain in Disney History
