At the start of the story, Simba prophesies that Pumbaa will meet someone special. Sure enough, the trio soon meet a female warthog named Pika who becomes a special friend of Pumbaa's.
Pika looks very much like Pumbaa, apart from a few differences, such as her chest markings, which have a heart-shaped look to them instead of Pumbaa's egg-shaped one, and her mane, which is longer and slightly more curly. Additionally, her eyes are set lower down in her face than Pumbaa's, and she sports long, feminine eyelashes.
Personality and traits
Pika's personality is unexplored, but she appears to be both amiable and generous, as seen when she politely requests more bugs for Pumbaa.
