Underrated Disney Badasses: Nala

You guys remember Nala, right? Simba's girlfriend from The Lion King? Well, I'm sure you didn't realize what a badass she was!

Posted on

Let's talk about how much stronger she was than Simba, as a cub

And age didn't help Simba any - she STILL pinned him!

She was fearless

And fierce!

Just look at those teeth!

She didn't take any of Simba's shit

I mean, just look at the amount of sass!

And she didn't take Timon and Pumbaa's shit either!

Timon: He's gone? Whaddaya MEAN he's gone?Nala: It's just like the baboon said. The king has returned.[Timon and Pumbaa stare at her blankly]Nala: You guys want me to go over it again?Timon: Yes please, but be a dear and skip to the part about Simba. Not that your childhood wasn't fascinating!Nala: OK. Look, Simba's the rightful king, but after he disappeared, Scar proclaimed himself the king and formed an alliance with the hyenas ... So Simba has to go back to challenge his uncle and reclaim his place as king![Silence.]Nala: Ohh... don't you get it? Simba NEEDS us! NOW!

[Timon and Pumbaa stare at her blankly]

Nala: You guys want me to go over it again?

Timon: Yes please, but be a dear and skip to the part about Simba. Not that your childhood wasn't fascinating!

Nala: OK. Look, Simba's the rightful king, but after he disappeared, Scar proclaimed himself the king and formed an alliance with the hyenas ... So Simba has to go back to challenge his uncle and reclaim his place as king!

[Silence.]

Nala: Ohh... don't you get it? Simba NEEDS us! NOW!

Oh, and there's the fact that she struck out ON HER OWN when the Pridelands were starving

No backup, nothing.

And she sets Simba straight when he's being a little wuss

Simba: You're starting to sound like my father.Nala: Good. At least one of us does [you little prince brat who ran off and won't come back to save his own mother and lionesses - deal with the past and get on with it!]

Nala: Good. At least one of us does [you little prince brat who ran off and won't come back to save his own mother and lionesses - deal with the past and get on with it!]

Plus there's the whole subplot from the musical

Basically, Scar wants to make sweet love to Nala as his queen, so she runs off to find help to save everyone in the Pridelands. Let's bear in mind that Nala is Simba's age - the same age as Scar's nephew.
