And he is also known as dim-witted, idiotic, unintelligent, headstrong, unkind, noisy, greedy, uncompromising, silly, clueless, hotheaded, upbeat, naughty, gluttonous, easily upset, and obnoxious. In season 3, he is Loyal, brave, helpful, funny, mischievous, cheeky, still dim-witted

Physical appearance[]

Chungu, unlike the other hyenas, is more stout with spots on his back, gray and black fur, black muzzle, and black paws and nose.


  • Intellect: Chungu is not as intelligent as Janja, but he quickly knew that Kion was too afraid to come to save Bunga from harm. But with his great loyalty, he knew that he wouldn't be fooled by Tamma, as he pointed out that he only listens to Janja's orders and knew that Tam figured that Tamma was lying.
  • Skilled Combatant: Chungu's size and strength allows him to hold his own against Kion for a short period of time.
  • Animal Strength: He was able to hold his ground for short period of time against Kion's roar.
