Zira is the main antagonist of Disney's 1998 animated film, The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, (the sequel to Disney's 1994 animated film The Lion King ), and a guest character in its 2016 midquel series, The Lion Guard. Zira is the leader of the Outsiders and the mate of Scar. Zira is the mother of Nuka, Vitani, and Kovu and leader of Scar's followers The Outsiders. Scar is mentioned several times by the characters, but makes two cameos. This of course would make Zira Scar's partner and Nuka and Vitani Kovu's siblings. Zira attempts to destroy Simba but Kiara pushes her away. Zira was originally going to betroth Vitani and Kovu to other cubs, but because Zira wasn't able to find them, she didn't, so she left Vitani and Kovu betrothed less. After Simba shows up and roars at Kovu, Zira puts herself protectively in front of Kovu and makes bitter conversation with Simba (and to Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, and the lionesses who followed).

Zira was still able to fight despite growing old. She also told him that he "killed his own brother", which, again, is exactly what Scar did. Relatives Zira arrives at the edge of Pride Rock with her army, rejecting Simba's last chance offer to return home and avert the confrontation, and soon an intense battle begins between the two factions.

Personality Zira was originally going to be Scar's mate but due to the incestuous undertones of Kovu's relationship with Kiara, the relationship was obscured to appear as "just a follower " I think Zira was madly in love with Scar but he died before she could propose taking away her dream of becoming Queen of Pride Rock. Unlike with her brother Kion, Zira never once called Kiara by name, only referring to her as "the daughter", showing her utter lack of respect and underestimation of the princess.

Zira and her current mate Kuchoka now live in the asylum that Simba designated for elderly lions. The pair snickered and Zira took a step up onto the log connecting the Outlands and the Pridelands. During the battle between the prides she and Simba faced off and were about to engage in a bloody battle until the intervention of Kiara and Kovu. While it is unknown if Scar had any real regard for Zira there are some instances that imply he did indeed genuinely appreciate her loyalty.

When Zira and Simba encounter each other onscreen for the first time, Zira's line "If you need your pound of flesh..." as she pushes Kovu forward is actually a reference to the Shakespearian play "The Merchant of Venice", even though "Simba's Pride" is based on "Romeo and Juliet".
