Watch the movie, already. It's a classic!


Dawn of Man[]

May the light of those who have gone before shine forever upon your lands, great Simba, lord of all lions. You came to unite all the animals of your lands under one banner, and in turn they helped you to bring life to what once was desert. Your father, cruelly ripped from this world by your murderous uncle, would be proud of the kingdom you have built around Pride Rock; a land of greenness and plenty, forever watched over by the wisdom of countless kings. By your will has the desert blossomed into a land of life, and every animal, from the lowliest mouse to the most highborn of lions, can share in its peace and prosperity.

O great king Simba, today is the day when all the light touches is yours, when you are the main event, when your people need a leader who rules while feeling the love tonight. Can you be like no king was before? Can you command an empire to move to the Circle of Life? Can you build a civilisation that will stand the test of time?


Introduction: Greetings, human! I am King Simba - the mane event, like no King was before! Welcome to the Pridelands!

Introduction: Welcome to the Pridelands, traveller. Are you interested in hearing of our problem-free philosophy?


Introduction: Welcome to our land, where everyone is obsessed with singing. Is it possibly quieter in your lands? Maybe I should visit.

Defeat: You certainly can not feel the love tonight.

Defeat: We are no longer participants in this Circle of Life. Begone, you bi-pedal fool. Defeat: I should have listened more to the dead guy in the sky.
