Bunga the Wise said it was the best way to avoid seeing hyenas. And he's the smartest animal there is!
Mbuni is a female ostrich.
When Bunga becomes a self-proclaimed sage, Mbuni seeks advice from him. Bunga foolishly tells her to hide from hyenas by sticking her head in the ground, and the rest of the Lion Guard comes to her aid when she gets stuck.
Mbuni can be seen running away from the false hyena attack. She later appears resting at the Water Hole.
When a mudslide threatens a nest of ostrich eggs, Mbuni and the other ostriches begin to panic. The Lion Guard arrives on the scene and successfully rescues the eggs, prompting thanks from Mbuni, who is honored to have been personally served by Simba, the king of the Pride Lands.
Later, a stampede of gazelles threatens the eggs once more, and the ostriches begin to run around in a panic. Fuli arrives to calm them, while Ono halts the gazelles. In this way, the eggs are saved once more.
Mbuni is tall and long-legged, with black feathers and a pinkish-white neck. She has a tuft of white feathers on her head and blue eyes.
Personality and traits
Gullible and easily enchanted, Mbuni is quick to take the advice of Bunga, which lands her in trouble. She is not a very talented singer, and is prone to bouts of forgetfulness. When faced with an attack or any sort of stress, she is prone to losing her head and racing about in a panic.
