Vuruga Vuruga praises Kiara for understanding what the Royal Buffalo Wallow is truly about

Simba and Nala, the reigning monarchs of Pride Rock, task their eldest cub, Kiara, with announcing the Royal Buffalo Wallow. After a run-in with floodwaters, Kiara arrives to the event covered in mud. Despite this, Vuruga Vuruga bows respectfully to her, and Kiara returns the greetings. Unexpectedly, Vuruga Vuruga praises Kiara's appearance, adding in an undertone that royals tend to be very stuffy at the Wallow. She adds that Kiara must understand what the event is all about.

Surprised at Vuruga Vuruga's praise, Kiara gives credit to her friends, Tiifu and Zuri, for always encouraging her to look her best. She then steps forward and announces the start of the Wallow. Vuruga Vuruga stands at Kiara's side and overlooks the event contentedly.

Physical appearance

Vuruga Vuruga is roughly the same size as the other cape buffalo in her herd, though she is more box-like in shape and has a scruffy hump on her back. Her pelt is light brown, while her underbelly carries undertones of brown and gray. Vuruga Vuruga has a dark muzzle and eye shades, and two giant, curved, gray horns on her head that are spattered with darker spots. Her eyes are a swampy green.

Personality and traits

Vuruga Vuruga is warm and friendly, with an inclination to be informal. She appreciates Kiara for not being a "stuffy" royal and praises her for coming prepared for the Royal Buffalo Wallow.
