Mabu is very mischievous, playing pranks on his siblings and later disrespecting his elder Timon as well as offending a various number of other animals. When the Sky Bandit threatens his life however, those he annoyed come to his rescue and he opts not to be mischievous ever again.
In Mabu's MischiefWhile Monty is on sentry duty, Mabu pranks him and later the whole colony by crying wolf, saying the infamous Sky Bandit approaches and sending them into a frenzy of fear. He laughs at this, although the colony tells him the Bandit really is there, but feeling they are trying to prank him in return he doesn't believe them until he is snatched up. A roar from Simba who is nearby startles the bird of prey and Mabu is dropped with his uncle Timon. Here, he feels restless—like causing more trouble. His ambitions offend a crocodile, but he, Simba and Co. save her eggs from a monitor lizard.
The Sky Bandit returns to reclaim his quarry, but they use the help of the crocodile to scare him off for good. Afterwards, Mabu is returned home, changed and tempered, to his family.
