Kion is fun-loving and playful but also takes responsibility seriously. He can be identified by the red tuft of hair on his head. Kion possesses the Roars of the Elders, a magical gift that causes the lion spirits of the Pride Lands' past to roar with him, making his roar very powerful!

Besides Kion's special ability, each of Kion's close friends also has their own unique ability too. For example, Bunga is a brave, fearless honey badger; Fuli is a confident cheetah, who is also the fastest runner; Beshte is a happy-go-lucky hippo and he is the strongest too; and Ono is an intellectual egret who is a great team player.
