The Lair of the Lion Guard is a cave hidden within Pride Rock. On the walls of the cave, paintings can be seen, including an image of Kion leading the Lion Guard.

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

When Kion uses the Roar of the Elders for the first time, Rafiki and Simba overhear his roar and come to realize that it is time for him to lead the Lion Guard. When Bunga and Kion return to Pride Rock, Rafiki leads them to the Lair of the Lion Guard, where he explains that Scar used to lead the Lion Guard until he lost his powers. Simba then tasks Kion with gathering a new Lion Guard to protect the Pride Lands.

"The Rise of Makuu"

The Lair of the Lion Guard

The Lion Guard meets in the Lair of the Lion Guard after the mashindano between Makuu and Pua. While there, Ono attempts to mask Bunga's stink, but the procedure only results in Bunga sneezing hysterically. In the midst of the gathering, Kiara rushes up and warns Kion that the giraffes have moved into the baboon's forest.

They later meet up again to discuss their plan to take down Makuu. Kion resolves to demonstrate the Roar of the Elders to scare the crocodile off, and Beshte suggests Kion roar at an empty strand of trees near Big Springs.

"Can't Wait to be Queen"

Kion fetches the Lion Guard from the Lair when Kiara is endangered.

"Eye of the Beholder"

When Ono's eye is injured, he is taken to the Lair of the Lion Guard, where Rafiki tends to him. There, Ono is told that he must rest for three days, much to his disappointment.

Not long after this, the Lion Guard meets Rafiki in the Lair of the Lion Guard, and Kion poses for him as he draws a new painting on the wall. Soon enough, Beshte runs up with bad news, and the Lion Guard rushes out of the Lair, leaving Ono behind.

Left alone with Rafiki, Ono comforts Rafiki on his painting, reassuring him that his new painting looks just like the others. Rafiki then realizes that Kion's Lion Guard is not like the others, for they are not just teammates; they are friends. He thanks Ono for his help, and Ono realizes that he must help his friends no matter his condition. Giving a hasty goodbye to Rafiki, Ono flies off to rejoin his team.

"The Kupatana Celebration"

After saving a jackal pup named Dogo, the Lion Guard sets out on patrol. Just before splitting up, Kion tells his team to meet back at the Lair once their patrol is finished. However, Dogo and his family cause so much trouble that the Lion Guard doesn't make it back to the Lair.

"Paintings and Predictions"

After rescuing a baby antelope, the Lion Guard returns to the Lair of the Lion Guard, where Beshte jumps into the water and drenches Fuli. Bunga attempts to jump in, but his foot gets caught on a vine, and he swings over to where Rafiki is painting. There, he mistakes the paintings as visions of the future, but Rafiki later clarifies that they are simply images from the past.

"Too Many Termites"

A few days after the Lion Guard obliviously banishes aardwolves, not hyenas from the Pride Lands, they notice termites overrunning the kingdom, including the Lair of the Lion Guard.

After the Lion Guard successfully returns the aardwolves to the Pride Lands, the team returns to the Lair of the Lion Guard, where Bunga laments the disappearance of the termites. Shortly afterward, Ono swoops in with a present from the aardwolves, which turns out to be a leaf full of termites.

"Lions of the Outlands"

Bunga arrives in the Lair of the Lion Guard to deliver a message from Kion to Beshte, Fuli, and Ono. However, he gets distracted by a race between Fuli and Ono.

Later, Rafiki asks where Kion is, and Bunga explains that he had gone into the Outlands with Jasiri to reason with a pride of Outlander lionesses. Horrified, Rafiki realizes that Kion has encountered the Outsiders. He gathers the Guard to him and tells them the story of Zira and her family, after which they leave the Lair to rescue Kion.

"Never Roar Again"

After Kion uses the Roar of the Elders in a rage, he returns to the Lair of the Lion Guard and studies the paintings of Scar. Meanwhile, Ono laments having lost his crest feathers, and Bunga cheers him up by singing "Stand Up, Stand Out". After the song, Zazu arrives with news that the giraffes' watering hole is stopped up. The team leaves the Lair to help the situation.

"The Trail to Udugu"

In the Lair of the Lion Guard, Kion informs his team that Simba will be leading them while he is away. Ono is worried by the prospect, but Bunga reassures him by singing "When You're Running With the King". Simba meets up with the team in the Lair, and the Guard leaves with him for morning patrol.

"Babysitter Bunga"

The Lion Guard gathers in the Lair, minus Bunga, who is babysitting Hamu. With Bunga absent, Kion drills the other members in climbing by asking them to rescue a rock from atop a large pillar. All three Guard members fail the task.
