Herr Rhino (or "Mr." Rhino) is a male rhinoceros with a "mustard-thick German accent". He is an inhabitant of the Pride Lands and a deleted character.
In J.T. Allen's early script for The Lion King, after Banagai, Baasho, and Scar murder Mufasa, Baasho pursue Simba as he flees from his homeland. Simba runs into what he mistakens to be a rock, but finds out to be a rhino. Simba asks help from the rhino, in which the rhino agrees. Herr Rhino charges at the hyenas creating a cloud of dust, but he makes Baasho go in Simba's direction.
Soon after Simba leaves Timon and Tesma's colony, Simba asks Herr Rhino to help assist him along with Kwashi and Zazu in taking back the Pride Lands. The rhino agrees, and Simba orders him and Zazu to lie down among some rhino boulders. Zazu whispers into Simba's ear telling him the rhino is not so swift, but Simba instructs him that he will be swift when the time comes. After Simba's fight with Scar ends with his opponent crushed by a tree branch, Herr Rhino and Zazu stand next to Simba, and the new king congratulates their work.
He is large and gray, as he is initially mistaken as a rock by Banagi. Herr Rhino also has a needle sharp horn.
