"Long live the king" ― Scar's most famous line.

Scar (born Askari or Taka) is the main antagonist of Disney's 32nd animated feature film The Lion King. He's Mufasa's younger brother, and Simba's uncle/rival. Scar's desire to rule Pride Rock drives him to enact a plot to kill both his brother and nephew to leave himself the sole royal in line for the throne as "true" ruler.

Why He Rocks

  1. He's voiced by the Academy award-winning actor Jeremy Irons.
  2. His Villain song "Be Prepared" is extremely catchy. Not to mention his smooth accent.
  3. He's one of the very few Disney Villains to commit murder on screen. Disney's not afraid to show death in a kids' film!
  4. He's also one of the very few villains to have an evil scheme that actually worked! (Too bad his became less fearsome afterwards)
  5. He's an incredible fighter, as he was able to hold back Simba and nearly won. Hey, he's powerful enough to give Maleficent a true challenge.

The Only Bad Qualities

  1. Once he became king of the Pride Lands, he hardly tries to be fearsome.
  2. Idiot Move- Had Scar not revealed the he was the one who killed Mufasa, Simba wouldn't have regained his confidence, and Scar would have been victorious.
