Bambun is a small and slender Javan Mongoose. His pelt is brown, while his underbelly is paler in color. His eyes are brown. He has sections of slightly darker fur on the tip of his tail and in stripes across his back. He has brown eyes, a pink nose, a tan chest and muzzle, gray ears with pink inner ears, and dark brown paws.
Bambun is friendly and skittish, and would do anything for his friends. Like most of the animals in the forest, however, he is terrified by the word “tuliza”. Only the mention of it causes him to shiver and be very afraid, apart from fleeing.
Bambun lived in the forest of Leopon Plains. He developed a strong fear of Mama Binturong, who aggressively hoarded the forest's tuliza.
He helps Makini and the Lion Guard learn what happened to Makini's staff. Bambun says he knows a civet who can help them.
Seisou is one of Bambun's best friends.
Tenuk is one of Bambun's best friends.
Tompok is one of Bambun's best friends.
The Rest of The Lion Guard and Makini
Bambun, the Lion Guard, and Makini are good friends. Bambun helped them when they wondered why everyone was freaking out about tuliza according to his advice.
Bambun is scared of Mama Binturong just like the other animals in his home. When Makini asks for more tuliza he panics knowing that.
Bambun is scared of Smun and his porcupines just like the other animals in his home.
