It's always more fun with somebody to chase.
―Shauku to Mtoto

Shauku is a mongoose pup who appears in The Lion Guard. He is a Pride Lander.


The Lion Guard

"Follow That Hippo!"

Shauku is first seen faking a hyena attack with his friends, as they're in the middle of a game about the Lion Guard. Their game, however, frightens a group of Pride Landers, and the real Lion Guard shows up, demanding to know what's going on. Meekly, Shauku and his friends pad forward, explaining their game to the Lion Guard, and Mtoto invites the Lion Guard to play with them. Despite the young animals' excitement, Kion explains that they have business elsewhere.


Shauku with his friends

Later, after Mtoto has trained with the Lion Guard, Shauku and his friends express amazement at Mtoto's experience. However, they despair that he won't want to play with them anymore, but, to their delight, he starts up another game with them, in which they pretend that the hyraxes are hyenas. While they're playing, Janja and his cronies, Cheezi and Chungu, begin to follow them.

Eventually, the young animals chase the hyraxes to safety and wonder what to do next. Just then, Janja and his cronies appear, and the young animals run away in fear. Shauku manages to escape, but Mtoto is pursued by the three hyenas. With his other remaining friends, Shauku alerts Beshte to the danger, and the hippopotamus goes to save Mtoto.

After Mtoto's safe return, Shauku listens eagerly to his friend's tale of escape. Shortly afterward, Kion volunteers to gift each child with a muddy mark of the Lion Guard, and the young animals immediately crowd around him, eager to receive their mark.

"Ono's Idol"

Shauku and his friend are searching for Mtoto, who sprays the pair with water. Mtoto then asks his friends if they can hear something. At first, Shauku fails to hear anything, but the three soon spot a flock of birds flying overhead. Shauku then watches as the Lion Guard appears on the scene.

Physical appearance

Long-bodied and slender, Shauku has a pale brown pelt, with darker paws and a dark streak between his eyes. His eyes are brown.

Personality and traits

Shauku is notorious for causing trouble around the Pride Lands, as he thinks little about the repercussions of his games. He does, however, take instruction well and looks up to the Lion Guard, respecting their authority and experience.
