Treachery runs deep by isuru077 Treachery runs deep by isuru077
It's not mentioned anywhere that Scar killed his father. But it would make sense of all-benevolent Mufasa's lack of empathy towards his brother.
And if I may draw more mythology into this, why Scar hates the song "It's a small world" is because Ahadi used to sing it to them when they were cubs, and it reminds of him of his treachery. I'd like to hear from you guys some more theories, against or pro.

UPDATE: A lot of 'against' theories are based on the fact that Mufasa would banish Scar from the Pride, had he seen his brother's act. Very agreeable. He wouldn't want a killer loose among his loved ones. But still, according to the canon, Mufasa forgave Scar when he tried to set a buffalo on him (which went wrong and gave taka the scar in return). Could it be that Scar pleaded with Mufasa and he forgave him? or maybe even Mufasa didn't really see Scar pushing Ahadi off the cliff, but just got there in time to see Scar standing there... putting on an act as he tried to save their father, but he lost the grip?

======What we learned======
Mufasa doesn't know Scar pushed him over. He looked like he was helping him. But something at the back of his mind nabs at Mufasa. Scar's story doesn't add up. He would keep an eye on his brother from then on.

It is an interesting theory. It makes more sense if Mufasa thinks Scar's helping his father rather than tossing him off, because canon tells us that, whatever else he thinks of him, Mufasa obviously trusts Scar, even to the point to let his son and heir hang out with him.

I do want to point out that the water buffalo story is not canon. The books that story comes from were written by authors who got permission from Disney to publish them, but they are in no way considered official by Disney. So how Scar got his, well, scar, is still open to interpretation.

I actually love this theory, because I can imagine  Ahadi always choosing Mufasa over Taka and maybe even giving him the scar. However I'd imagine Mufasa not being there, or coming just to witness Ahadi falling and Scat putting on a fake "sad/scared" face.

However the art is wonderful, and my friend, you just earned a follow

I like your theory, but I don't think Taka killed Ahadi. He had no need to really kill his father he would  have eventually pass away and Taka would have been a lot weaker at the younger age too.

lol. Just can't help it from a Disney fan standpoint, but the "it's a small world" bit in the movie was a joke, poking fun at how everyone says that the "Small world" ride annoys them. Don't know why, though. It's one of my favorite Disney World memories. Oh well.

Also, the books--though I think they are cute--are as legit as "2 movies," meaning they are often not written by the original creators. In other words, well-paid fan fiction by Disney. But I still like movie-based Disney books and 2 movies a lot, even if they are often not as good as the originals. (...except Mulan 2. That...was horrible...)

:giggle:

Still, I wouldn't put it past Scar to have killed off his father. :nod:

That look of realization in Mufasa's eyes as Scar says "long live the king" is given a whole new meaning by this.

Since we don't really see a lot of Ahadi, maybe he's already dead by the time Mufasa gets there. Mufasa would want to believe his brother's innocence, which he could play off like he'd just gotten there and tried to stop the bleeding.

I love the TLK fans creating their own theories, pictures and stories. This picture is good. As for the "It's a small world" being sung by Ahadi, I think that's pretty cheesy. Scar hates the song because that song is extremely annoying and hard to get out of your head. Just the mere mention of the song could make someone suffer its wrath for hours.

This theory seems entirely plausible. And entirely scary. Poor Ahadi; even though he wasn't the best father, he really didn't deserve to end up as the prelude to one of his son's deaths.

I agree with you about the buffalo, but think about Mufasa's actions for a minute.

If his brother had killed his father without a reason Mufasa considered inadequate, if the King even doubted his brother's actions in the slightest, I highly doubt Mufasa would let Simba go anywhere near his uncle without Mufasa there for protection. Mufasa knows the lionesses travel in groups, and he can protect himself, but his innocent little cub?

I just don't see it. My theory: Uru was Queen, daughter of Mohatu. She was killed by a stampede of buffalo protecting her son, Taka. Ahadi blamed his teenage son, and began to ignore Taka completely. After Sarabi and Taka's cub died, and she became Mufasa's Queen, Taka's resentment turned into hatred. Ahadi was probably left to wander the Pridelands ater Uru died, since Mufasa would become the new King. Trusted advisor, but nothing more.

I never thought up an "in character" reason for Scar to hate that song. I figured it was a joke on the fact that EVERYONE gets stuck on that ride at the Disney parks and has to listen to the song endlessly while they fix it. XD

What if it went something like this?

"You're never there for me! I hate you!" "How dare you say that, Taka! I've always-" "IT'S SCAR!!!" Hearing his own name...his old name... filled the brown lion with rage and hate, though not necessarily at Ahadi. But that's where the anger flowed at that moment, so Scar threw his weight forward and knocked Ahadi off the large cliff. They both landed on a small cliff, but Ahadi cried out as his back paws scrabbled for his hold.
"Son?! Help.." Scar turned around, freezing in fear of his father's position. "Son?!" Ahadi gasped as his Taka- for that would always be his name- grasped the yellow lion's wrists and pulled... then almost slipped himself. "Gunh." "Scar, leave me, go!" Scar let go for a moment, only a moment so he could pull himself up and get into a better position. "NO!" He screamed, for at that moment, the King lost his grip and plummetted to his death. "No..." Scar watched, transfixed, as the yellow body lay in a heap at the bottom of the gorge. He'd always hated his father. Hated him so bad it burned inside... but this? Technically murder? Never would he have wanted that. Not ever. He could only think that if he had had Mufasa's strength, he would have been able to save his father. And that thought? It was his slow decent to madness, to murder, to being... king. To be so strong, so powerful, something like this would never happen again.

Wow, sorry, long theory!

Thanks! I'm sorry it turned out to be so long. I usually never do that to other people's work. Maybe what Mufasa 'saw' in your picture, (if I base it on this theory thing I wrote) was when Scar froze. In case you can't tell, I think at one point Taka-Scar had a good side. :D Have a great day!
