One of the cubs takes after his father, sharing his deep golden fur and pale yellow muzzle, paws, and underbelly. The other cub, tawny-furred with a pale chest and muzzle, takes after his mother. Unlike his brother, his paws are the same color as most of his body.
Simba's cousins' personalities are unknown.
Simba's cousins are lion cubs who lived during the reign of Mufasa.
Simba's cousins are first seen when Simba and his family come to visit them. While Nala and Simba's parents fawn over the cubs, Simba is annoyed at their persistent crying. Despite this, Mufasa instructs his son to arrange a choir for the cubs in honor of their birth. When the choir is finally arranged, the music manages to soothe the cubs into sleep, and Simba admits that maybe the youngsters are cute after all.
- Simba's cousins are male, as they are referred to as "lions" (as opposed to lionesses) and "fellows".
