Kiburi faces off with Makuu

When the Lion Guard accidentally awakens a hibernating Kiburi and his float, Makuu decides to speak with Simba about a solution. Kiburi is loath to accept Makuu's decision and votes that they make Ono pay for putting them in a poor position to begin with. Makuu dismisses Kiburi's discussion and leaves with the Lion Guard to speak with Simba. However, the moment Makuu is gone, Kiburi inspires the other crocodiles into helping him forcibly take over the other water holes in the Pride Lands.

The Lion Guard catches wind of Kiburi's plan and puts an end to his scheme. Makuu publicly rebukes Kiburi, and Kiburi relents. He and the rest of the crocodiles then follow the Lion Guard to a small water hole that is to be theirs until the dry season ends. Kiburi is dissatisfied with the close quarters and little water, but Makuu reminds him that they must compromise with the other Pride Landers. Unwilling to accept Makuu's decision, Kiburi challenges him to a mashindano, to which Makuu accepts.

Kiburi blames Ushari for his loss at the mashindano

Before the event, Ushari the snake tricks Kiburi into thinking that he can rule the Pride Lands. Kiburi then sets Tamka and two other of his lackeys to kill Simba while he is fighting Makuu. The mashindano begins, and Kiburi fights ruthlessly. However, he is ultimately defeated. At first, Kiburi gloats that his defeat means nothing, for Simba has been killed, but then Simba emerges, unscathed, and Kiburi and his followers are banished from the Pride Lands.

Kiburi enters the Outlands with his followers and accuses Ushari of having led him to his downfall. Ushari convinces Kiburi to come with him, and he leads the crocodiles to Janja's den, where they meet and ally with the ghost of Scar.

Physical appearance

Kiburi has green scales and a lanky, yet sharp-angled build. He has a lighter green underbelly and muzzle, and dark green spikes running from his head to his tail. His eyes are brown with yellow sclerae.

Personality and traits

Kiburi is selfish and arrogant, with no respect for authority. He is a somewhat violent speaker, and believes that crocodiles are superior to all other animals, even to the point where he thinks that they should rule the Pride Lands. Additionally, he is shameless enough to blame his own shortcomings on others. Despite this, Kiburi is not without reason, as he will gladly ally with a cause that will benefit him.
