King of the Jungle

Don't you know it's good luck to help a lion?
—Kwashi

Kwashi is a baboon who was set to appear in The Lion King when it was initially titled King of the Jungle. He was later replaced by Rafiki.

Appearance

Kwashi is an old and frail baboon with a long silver beard and mane, and brown fur. His nose is pink, and his face is a pale brown.

Personality

Mandrill 1: Maybe Uncle Kwashi will know.
Madrill 2: Yeah, he knows everything!
—Kwashi's nephews/nieces


Kwashi's personality is similar to that of Rafiki's. However, he is purely wise and not a touch insane. He is a truthful and honest character, not containing the truth even if it does hurt.

Information

King of the Jungle

Zazu: ...Where are you off to in such a hurry?
Kwashi: To find a lion, a champion, to rid us of these...these heinous-
—Kwashi and Zazu


Kwashi meets Simba for the first time while picking blossoms. The prince is looking for his friend Nala. Later, when the lion is a teenager and Mufasa is defeated by the evil Scar, Kwashi instructs Simba to run across the desert to escape the hyenas and to stay alive. When he believes the prince to have failed him, he looks for another lion to help free the Pride Lands. Instead, he finds Simba again, older and stronger, and helps the lion take back his kingdom.
