Jasiri is a hyena cub who appears in The Lion Guard. She is a friend of Kion who believes that hyenas and lions are alike in many ways, and wants them to be at peace wit one another. She is not like the other Outlander Hyenas because she is much more nicer and helped Kion out of the Outlands when he got lost in them.


The Lion Guard

When Kion gets separated from the rest of the Lion Guard, he finds himself lost in the Outlands. As he desperately seeks Flat Ridge Rock, he is confronted by Jasiri, who teases him for not having noticed her sneak up on him. Kion bristles at this and claims to have known she was there the whole time, but Jasiri continues to poke fun at him.

She catches his attention when she calls him out for being the leader of the Lion Guard, and she points out that his shoulder mark is a dead giveaway. Kion questions if she's a part of the Outlanders, but Jasiri answers ambiguously, asking Kion why he's in the Outlands. Though defensive, Kion tells her that he's hoping to get back to the Pride Lands, and Jasiri points out that he's going the wrong way.

Jasiri takes a distrustful Kion in the direction of Flat Ridge Rock. Along the way, Kion gets stuck in a bush, but he is freed by Jasiri, who teases him for being so foolish. She reveals that most hyenas respect the Circle of Life and voices how similar lions and hyenas really are. Together, she and Kion sing "We're the Same (Sisi Ni Sawa)".

Upon arriving in Janja's territory, Jasiri and Kion part ways. However, when Kion leaves, Janja and his clan arrive and try to attack Jasiri. She is able to easily defeat Cheezi and Chungu before being pinned down by Janja. Luckily, Kion returns and saves her by using the Roar of the Elders. The Lion Guard arrives and at first thinks that Jasiri is a threat, but Kion convinces them that she is a friend. Jasiri and Kion then part on good terms, with Jasiri returning to the Outlands while Kion follows his friends back into the Pride Lands.


Unlike the devious Outlanders, Jasiri is friendly and open to making friends with lions. However, her tie to her species shines through in how often she laughs, for even Kion notes that the world is like a giant game to her. She's a little sarcastic. Bold and spunky, Jasiri is a hyena through-and-through, but unlike Janja, she is a friend to the Pridelanders.

Jasiri is able to look past differences and focus on where different species have common ground. Unlike Janja and his clan, she is disgusted by selfishness and gluttony, and respects the Circle of Life.

Role in the series

Jasiri reprises her role in the series, and wishes that, ever since hyenas were exiled to the Outlands again following the events of SpongeBob's Adventures of The Lion King since the people of the Pride Lands viewed them negatively since they helped Scar nearly ruin the Pride Lands, Jasiri, while often being confused for a deceased Pure Hyena of the same name, feels that hyenas and lions should live in harmony and not be evil like Janja. She serves as one of the protectors during Simba and Nala's time off-world with The Jungle Crew.
