The trio arrive to see Nala coming for Timon and Pumbaa but as she charges at them Simba leaps at her and the two start fighting so the trio try to stop it.
"Simba! Wait!" Sora said but the two lions are still fighting.
"It's Nala! Don't you recognize her?" Sasuke asked but the two lions are still fighting until Nala pins Simba to the ground.
"Nala?" Simba asked confusing Nala. "It's me Simba." Simba said.
"Simba! You are alive!" Nala said.
"Hey what's going on here?" Timon asked but then he and Pumbaa see the trio and they run away and Timon hides behind Simba.
"Don't worry they're all friends of mine." Simba said.
"So that means nobody's planning on eating anybody else for lunch right?" Timon asked and the trio nodded.
"What if they wanna eat me like I'm some kind of pig?" Pumbaa asked.
"We won't eat you." Sasuke said.
"But you are a pig right?" Kiba asked.
"Call me Mr. Pig!" Pumbaa said and everyone laughs.
"Can you guys excuse us for a few minutes?" Simba asked.
"Why am I not surprised?" Timon asked and Simba and Nala go to the oasis.
"Simba you have to return to Pride Rock." Nala said. "I thought Sasuke and Sora might be able to help but you're the only one who can stop Scar." She added.
"I can't go back." Simba said.
"Why not?" Nala asked.
"Hakuna matata." Simba answered confusing Nala. "It's something I learned here. Sometimes bad things happen and you can't do anything about it." He said as he walks away.
"He's not coming back?" Sasuke asked as he, Kiba, and Akamaru arrive at the oasis.
"No he's not the Simba I remember." Nala said.
"Why not?" Kiba asked.
"Something about hakuna matata." Nala answered as she walks away.
"Hakuna mawhata?" Kiba asked.
Timon, Pumbaa, Sora, Donald, and Goofy are in a line and they start heading to the oasis in a dance fashion.
"Hakuna..." Timon said.
"Matata!" The others said.
"Hakuna..."Timon said again.
"Matata!" The others said again and Sasuke and Kiba notice this.
"That's just idiotic." Sasuke said in his mind as he sweat drops.
"Don't tell me this made Simba not come back to the Pride Lands." Kiba said in his mind as he and Akamaru sweat drop as well
"Hey where's Simba?" Sora asked.
"He went back to the jungle." Sasuke answered.
"There has to be a way to convince Simba to come back to the Pride Lands and take down Scar." Kiba said.
"Guess we'll have to think of somethin'." Goofy said.
It's now nighttime and Simba is standing near a cliff end staring at he view with a downcast look.
"My father's dead and it's all my fault." Simba said. "I can't go back. It won't change anything." He added.
Young Simba is with his father Mufasa in a grass field and they're both looking at the sky.
"Look at the stars Simba. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars." Mufasa said. "Whenever you feel alone just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you and so will I." He added.
"Father are you there?" Simba asked and an image appears in the sky and it's Mufasa.
"Simba...you have forgotten who you are. You must take your place in the Circle of Life." Mufasa said.
"How can I go back?" Simba asked. "I'm not who I used to be." He said.
"Remember who you are." Mufasa said as he disappears.
"Father wait!" Simba said but Mufasa disappears.
"So now what are you gonna do?" A voice asked and it's Sasuke and the others are with him.
"I'm going to face my past. I could use your help." Simba said.
"You betcha!" Donald said.
"Okay then let's go back to the Pride Lands." Simba said.
"He really IS a king." Timon said.
"Yep." Goofy said.
"C'mon let's go!" Kiba said and the trio start heading back to the Pride Lands.
After going through the wastelands and the Wildebeest Valley the trio are back at the Savannah and Simba looks at how it turned out ever since Scar took over and then he looks at Pride Rock.
"Wait a minute we're gonna fight your uncle for THIS?" Timon asked.
"Yes Timon this is my home." Simba said.
"Okay then let's get ready to take back what's yours." Sora said.
"This is gonna be dangerous you know." Simba said.
"Danger? Ha! I laugh at the face of danger! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!" Nala said and Simba smiles.
"C'mon." Sasuke said and the trio head to Pride Rock.
At Pride Rock the lionesses are sleeping while Scar is at the top overlooking but then he hears something and he looks up to see someone he hasn't seen in years on a rock and Scar is surprised by this.
"Simba?! You're...alive?!" Scar asked as Simba comes down and faces Scar.
"This kingdom doesn't belong to you." Simba said.
"Simba's the rightful king." Nala said.
"The choice is yours Scar you can step down or fight." Simba said.
"Must this all end in violence?" Scar asked. "I'd hate to be responsible for the death of a family member Simba." He said.
"I put my past behind me!" Simba said.
"Ah, but what about your faithful subjects have they?" Scar asked looking at the trio.
"Simba what's he talking about?" Nala asked.
"Go on tell them who is responsible for Mufasa's death." Scar said and Simba sighs.
"I am." Simba said surprising the trio.
"He admits it murderer!" Scar said walking toward Simba who back away. "If it weren't for you Mufasa would still be alive do you deny it?" He asked.
"No it was an accident!" Simba said.
"You're in trouble again but Daddy isn't here to save you this time and now everyone know why!" Scar said leaning toward Simba who backs off but he's now on the end of Pride Rock and he's struggling to get back up.
"Simba!" Sasuke said.
"Now this looks familiar. I think I've seen this before. Oh, yes now I remember this is how your father looked before he died." Scar said as he places his paws on Simba's. "And here's my little secret...I killed Mufasa." Scar whispered to Simba who leaps at Scar now and is pinned to the ground.
"Murderer! Tell them the truth!" Simba said.
"All right I did it." Scar said.
"Louder!" Simba said.
"I...killed...Mufasa!" Scar said.
"Now THAT makes sense." Kiba said and Akamaru nods but then Shenzi, Banza, and Ed arrive and attack Simba allowing Scar to get away.
"Simba get Scar we'll handle the hyenas." Sasuke said and Simba goes after Scar but then more hyenas arrive but Timon and Pumbaa come running at the hyenas and ram at them but Shenzi, Banza, and Ed chase after Timon and Pumbaa into the den.
"We'd better help them out." Sora said as the trio chase after the hyenas.
"Yeah." Sasuke said but as Sasuke goes with the others he sees a figure with dark orange wilder hair, wearing a dark teal and black sleeveless hooded jacket, torn up white long shorts, a chain around his waist, orange and black fingerless gloves, and a dark teal and black one holed mask over the face. "Great another Karasu member." Sasuke said.
"Got that right man. The name's Ortax I've been told you're getting in the Karasu's way and the boss doesn't like that." Ortax said.
"Get out of my way." Sasuke said.
"Nope it's my turn to have fun with you and you're friend's more than welcome to join in." Ortax said.
"If you're Sasuke's enemy then I'll be more than happy to fight ya." Kiba said and Akamaru barks in agreement.
"Prefect! Let's get WILD!" Ortax said as he summons four claws in each hand.
"Watch out Kiba it looks like this one's as unpredictable as the other one was." Sasuke said.
"No prob. Just take the lead." Kiba said.
Ortax charges at the two and starts slashing with his claws but Sasuke dodges and attacks with his Keyblade while Kiba and Akamaru attack with their combined combat but Ortax curls himself into a ball and starts going at Sasuke while slashing with his claws but Kiba and Akamaru use Passing Fang to get Ortax off Sasuke and Sasuke uses Dragon Flame Jutsu but Ortax places his claws on the ground and starts sliding at the boys getting them but Sasuke uses Chidori but Ortax multi slashes with his claws getting Sasuke but Kiba and Akamaru use Fang over Fang but Ortax spirals at the two making a clash but Kibe and Akamaru push Ortax away but Ortax spin slashes at Kiba and Akamaru but Sasuke attacks with his Keyblade followwd by Chidori but Ortax creates a spark shot from his claws to get Sasuke but Kiba and Akamaru use their combined combat while Sasuke uses Water Missile Jutsu but Ortax digs underground avoiding the attack and when he gets under Sasuke Ortax rises from the ground to get Sasuke but Sasuke moved out of the way and strikes Ortax with his Keyblade while Kiba attacks Ortax followed by a combined attack with Akamaru but Ortax lets out a roar and starts slashing at the boys like a wild animal but Sasuke and Kiba work together with the two attacking Ortax like wild animals until they unleash their ultimate attack with Kiba and Akamaru using Wolf Fang over Fang while Sasuke uses Chidori but Ortax slashes with his claws again followed by a spiral slash but Sasuke uses Earthquake Jutsu while Kiba and Akamaru use Passing Fang and the boys deliver their final attack on Ortax who stumbles back.
"That was awesome! You guys know how to throw a wild party! Still I doubt you'll survive the darkness that'll kill you." Ortax said as he tries to ball slash Sasuke but Sasuke uses Fireball Jutsu.
"You are getting on my nerves telling me this." Sasuke said.
"But the darkness is gonna kill you sorry man but it's fate and you know that's true." Ortax said.
"Wow that's coming from an idiot like you." Kiba said.
"Who asked you punk?!" Ortax asked. "Look you're gonna die and no one is gonna help ya. You're on your own. Have fun livin' 'til then." Ortax said as he disappears through a dark portal.
"I hate hearing that every time." Sasuke said.
"Nothing bad's gonna happen to you Sasuke. That loser is just stupid beacuse he can't stand the fact he lost." Kiba said and Akamaru nods.
"Right. We'd better go in and help the others." Sasuke said as he, Kiba, and Akamaru go into the den.
Meanwhile the hyenas are after Timon and Pumbaa but Sora, Donald, and Goofy show up and attack the hyenas but Shenzi bites at the trio while Banza charges at them while Ed also bites but Sora attacks with his Keyblade while Donald casts Fire while Goofy uses Tornado but Shenzi charges at the trio and tries to bite at Timon and Pumbaa but Sora casts Blizzard but Banza rams at Sora but Goofy bashes with his shield while Donald whacks with his staff but Ed tries to bite at Timon and Pumbaa this time but Donald casts Blizzard while Sora attacks with his Keyblade but Shenzi attacks Sora with her paws but Goofy bashes with his shield but Banza and Ed go for Timon and Pumbaa again but Donald casts Thunder while Sora attacks with his Keyblade followed by a roar but Ed bites at Sora but Goofy uses Tornado while Donald casts Blizzard but the three hyenas all go for Timon and Pumba to eat them but Sora attacks with his Keyblade while Donald whacks with his staff while Goofy bashes with his shield and the three deliver their final attack on the hyenas driving them and the other hyenas out of the den.
"You two okay?" Goofy asked.
"Yeah thanks guys." Timon said.
"The hyenas maybe gone now but Scar is still here." Nala said.
"Simba should be able to deal with him." Sasuke said as he, Kiba, and Akamaru enter the den.
"But where is Simba?" Donald asked.
"Both he and Scar are up there." Nala answered.
"C'mon." Kiba said and the trio go up the den.
The trio arrive at the peak area of Pride Rock and there they see Simba and Scar fighting but Scar is gaining the upper hand.
"Simba!" Kiba said as he and Akamaru go help but Sasuke stops them.
"This is his fight." Sasuke said.
"He's right only he's capable of stopping Scar." Sora said and the fight continues.
Simba and Scar exchange their strikes at each other but Scar swipes at Simba knocking him down and as Scar was about jump on Simba he pushes Scar up and backward sending Scar to fall down the peak.
"NOOOOOOO!" Scar shouted as he falls and Simba sees him falling.
"You did it." Sasuke said.
"You think it's over? That was just a sneak preview." A voice said and the trio turn to see Kabuto arriving. "It's not over not by a long shot." He said as he points at the peak and the trio look at what he's pointing and Scar rises back up.
"What the...?!" Kiba asked.
"Anger and jealousy has turned the king of Pride Rock into a Heartless." Kabuto said. "Don't worry Scar your kingdom will rise again but this time as the Pride Lands of Darkness!" He added as the sky turns dark and Scar is back on the arena.
"That's what you think!" Simba said.
"We'll help you this time." Sora said.
"Fools! Kneel before your king!" Scar said.
Scar charges at the trio but Sasuke uses Earthquake Jutsu while Sora casts Thunder while Donald casts Blizzard while Goofy uses Tornado while Simba attacks with his claws while Kiba and Akamaru use Fang over Fang but Scar pounces at Sora and starts scratching him but Sasuke attacks with his Keyblade followed by Chidori while Simba roars but Scar unleashes fire at the trio and starts burning them but Sasuke uses Water Wall Jutsu but Scar burns Sasuke but Simba casts Cure on Sasuke while Sora casts Blizzard while Donald whacks with his staff while Goofy bashes with his shield while Kiba and Akamaru use Passing Fang but Scar is unleashing more fire to try and burn the trio but Sasuke uses Whirlwind Jutsu while Simba spin claw attacks but Scar unleashes lightning at the trio but Sora attacks with his Keyblade while Donald casts Fire but Scar avoids them and summons more lightning but Sasuke uses Giant Twister Jutsu while Kiba and Akamaru use their combined combat but Scar attacks with his claws while summoning more lightning but Simba roars while Goofy uses Tornado while Donald casts Blizzard but Scar attacks with his claws again but Sasuke and Sora attack with their Keyblades while Simba attacks with his claws Kiba attacks with his claws followed by a combined attack with Akamaru but Scar summons darkness around him and starts charging at the trio getting them but Donald and Simba heal themselves and the others but Scar charges again but Sora and Simba work together by summoning rocks and start attacking Scar with their claws until they unleash their ultimate attack by roaring but Scar lunges at Simba and tries to slash at him but Sasuke uses Fireball Jutsu at Scar while Donald casts Thunder but Scar attacks with his claws but Sasuke and Kiba work together again and start attacking Scar like wild animals until Kiba and Akamaru use Wolf Fang over Fang while Sasuke uses Chidori but Scar summons darkness around him again and he starts charging at the trio but Sasuke uses Rock Wave Jutsu while Sora casts Reflect while Donald whacks with his staff while Goofy bashes with his shield while Simba attacks with his claws while Kiba and Akamaru use Fang over Fang but Scar summons more fire at the trio but Sasuke uses Water Dragon Jutsu while Sora casts Blizzard but Scar summons more lightning but Simba spin claws attacks while Donald casts Fure while Goofy uses Tornado but Scar tries to pounce at Simba but Sasuke and Sora attack with their Keyblades while Donald casts Thunder while Goofy uses Tornado while Simba roars while Kiba and Akamaru use their combined combat and the trio deliver their final attack on Scar who stumbles back and then lies on the ground not moving.
"The false king has fallen." Goofy said.
"And now it's time for the rightful king to take the throne." Sasuke said and Simba nods.
"Thanks for your help now it's my turn to be king of the Pride Lands like I'm suppose to be." Simba said.
Simba is now on the top of Pride Rock and reaches to the cliff side while Nala and the other lionesses, Timon and Pumbaa, and the trio watch him go the cliff side and then he roars at the sky and lionesses roar with him and rain starts to fall down and the image of Mufasa appears and nods at Simba as the light shines at Simba but then Sasuke sees the light also revealing something and Sasuke and Sora know what this means again.
Sasuke and Sora are at the same area and the light reveals another keyhole and the two boys use their Keyblades to unlock the keyhole and the boys are back at Pride Rock.
"Hey what happened?" Kiba asked.
"We have to go away for a little while." Sasuke answered.
"I'll go tell Simba." Pumbaa said.
"He's probably busy so just tell him we'll back soon." Goofy said.
"Oh, right he's king now which means he's gonna so busy he'll forget about his best buddies." Timon said.
"Hey at least you still got hakuna matata." Sora said.
"Guess so." Pumbaa answered.
"Whaddaya mean 'guess so'?" Timon asked. "What if he forgets to tell the lions who we are? One look at you and you're a pig roast." He said.
"That's Mr. Pig Roast." Donald said.
"Same thing and I'm not gonna stick around to be anybody's pork dinner!" Pumbaa said as he runs away.
"Pumbaa!" Timon said.
"You can never forget your true buddies." Sasuke said.
"Hey Sasuke ya okay?" Kiba asked.
"Yeah. We're gonna get moving. Think you and Akamaru can stay here for a while?" Sasuke asked.
"You bet! I'll tell Simba you guys are gonna be back! Good luck on your adventure Sasuke!" Kiba said and Akamaru barks for joy in agreement and the trio leaves.
Unknowing to them Ortax is at the top of a rock watching the trio leave the Pride Lands.
"Well he has gotten strong like everyone else says but still the boss wants him gone and that's gonna happen." Ortax said. "Even if you don't forget your friends Sasuke your friends are still gonna abandon ya just wait and see." He added as he summons a dark portal and leaves through it.
