Timon is a meerkat, and the best friend of Pumbaa and Simba. He is also Bunga's adoptive uncle.


Timon is a skinny pale tannish-brown meerkat with a vaguely triangle-shaped head and cream-colored underbelly and palms. A line of longer fur is present on his chest, and excess fur on his elbows form triangular points. On his head is an orange-red tuft of fur, and this same color covers the back of his head. On his back, he has five short horizontal stripes that are several shades darker than his predominant color. His eyelids, hind paws, and digits are a dark brown, as well as the tips of both his tail and ears. His large, shiny nose is brown as well, though a darker shade than the rest. Unlike a lot of other characters, Timon doesn't have colored pupils- his are black.


Timon lives a carefree life, and follows the motto "Hakuna Matata", which means "no worries". He is always laid-back and enjoys eating bugs like his friend Pumbaa. He detests work, preferring to just relax. He is shown to care greatly for his adoptive nephew Bunga and adopted son Simba. He becomes very upset when either one of them is in danger. And he is also known as comedic, intelligent, cocky, lazy, self-praising, wisecracking, outgoing, quick-thinking, heroic when necessary, generous, sentimental, understanding, cheerful, thoughtful, helpful, friendly, loyal, emotional, a show-off, clumsy, obnoxious, hyperactive, sarcastic, clever, and short-tempered. Timon is also impatient, and doesn't like it when he is not listened to. He becomes panicky in stressful situations.


Timon, along with Pumbaa, found Simba, who had passed out under the heat of the desert. The pair brought him back to their jungle home and raised him, showing him the kind of king he could be. When Simba traveled back to the Pride Lands to battle his evil uncle Scar, the pair went with him to help fight and reclaim the Pride Lands.

Timon and Pumbaa were walking through the Pride Lands in search of Utamu grubs when a very young honey badger approached them. Pumbaa wanted to keep him, but Timon protested, pointing out that they had already raised a lion. He sent the honey badger off to gather grubs in the hopes of getting rid of him, but the honey badger was quick to return with his findings. Timon thanked him, and continued on his search for the Utamu. The honey badger followed him, and was able to find Utamu grubs for Timon and Pumbaa by climbing up a dead tree. Timon was very grateful, and he decided to keep the honey badger, calling him by the name of Bunga.
