Tunu is a male hyena pup.
When Tunu and his clan are driven from their watering hole by a pride of lions known as the Outsiders, Jasiri goes to Kion, the son of Simba and Nala, for help. Upon meeting Kion, Tunu and Wema are fearful of him, and they continue to hide from him even after he returns the watering hole to the hyena clan.
When a pride of lions known as the Outsiders overtakes Tunu and his clan's watering hole, Jasiri goes to her friend Kion for help. Upon arriving at the clan's hideaway, Kion sees Tunu and Wema playing with Jasiri's sister, Madoa. The two catch sight of Kion and hide, and refuse to emerge even after Kion comforts them. Madoa explains that Kion should not blame them for their behavior, for they have only ever known bad lions.
After Kion returns the watering hole to Tunu's clan, Kion asks the pups if they are still scared of him. To the amusement of Jasiri and Madoa, the pups hide from him once more.
Unlike the females of his clan, Tunu does not have a purple tinge to his pelt. Rather, his fur is pale gray, and he has dark gray stripes across his back and one in-between his eyes. Both his ears and legs are black, and his underbelly is gray tinged with pink. His tail is black, though its underside is the same pinkish-gray as his underbelly, and his eyes are dark blue. He also has one small tooth that protrudes from his mouth.
