The Lion Guard

That's all well and good for storks, but elephants don't fly.
—Zito to Hadithi

Zito is a male elephant. He is a member of Ma Tembo's herd.


The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar

Zito appears amidst Ma Tembo's herd as Ma Tembo searches for water. Presently, Zito falls under attack from Janja's clan, but the hyenas are soon driven off by the Lion Guard. Zito then continues to follow Ma Tembo in the search for a new water source.

When Ma Tembo successfully locates water, Zito drinks with the other Pride Landers.

The Lion Guard

"The Rise of Makuu"

Zito witnesses the mashindano between Makuu and Pua.

"Can't Wait to be Queen"

When a wise old elephant named Aminifu dies, Zito pays his respects. He listens to Simba's speech at the funeral and reacts with shock when Simba speaks incorrect elephantese. However, like the other elephants, Zito laughs at the harmless error.

"Fuli's New Family"

Zito and his herd sing "My Own Way" as they walk past Fuli.

"The Call of the Drongo"

Zito can be seen resting near a watering hole.

"Bunga and the King"

During an elephant concert, Zito performs alongside his herd. When Simba arrives, he listens to the lions sing "Hakuna Matata".

"Ono's Idol"

A legendary eagle named Hadithi comes to the Pride Lands and begins to preach wise words. To a crowd of Pride Landers, he preaches, "The higher you fly, the more they'll look up to you," to which Zito counters that this advice does not apply well to elephants. Ono steps forward and explains that Hadithi is referring to how each animal can better themselves by getting through challenges, and Zito thanks Ono for clarifying.

"Let Sleeping Crocs Lie"

Zito is seen watching the mashindano between Kiburi and Makuu.

"Rafiki's New Neighbors"

In the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard attempts to save a pair of hippopotamuses and Zito from dry lightning. As the team begins to lead their charges away from the watering hole, dry lightning strikes, trapping the animals in a ring of fire. Zito attempts to spray the fire out, but to no avail.

Presently, Beshte pushes a boulder into the flames, allowing his teammates and their charges to safely cross the ring of fire. Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to put out the fire, and Zito and the other Pride Landers thank him for saving them.

Zito is a large and bulky elephant with a long trunk and two white tusks. His skin is dark gray tinged with blue, and he bears several dark spots on top of his head and along his back. Zito's eyes are black, and he has two notches in his left ear.
