Pãgala is a character featured in the third season of The Lion Guard. He is a territorial mongoose who lives in the marsh alongside a whole pack of them.
Pãgala shows a hostile attitude to other animals whenever they enter their marsh. When the Lion Guard cannot figure out why the mongooses are angry, it is figured out that Bunga is eating their snails.
Despite his temper, he is not really a villain but rather a neutral obstacle as he was overprotective of their snails along with the other mongooses.
Role in the series
As the Lion Guard and Makini enter the marsh, Pãgala and the other mongooses continuously attack the animals thinking they are intruders to which they are not being aggressive to the mongooses while Makini and Ono escape for safety much to her not listening to Ono. During the ambush, Pãgala and the mongooses continue attacking the Guard to which Fuli explains to Kion that the Guard can't hurt them; the Guard attempts to talk to the mongooses but they refuse to talk to them. Kion tries to ask Ono about the mongooses but he realizes that he is not with the Guard along with Makini.
Meanwhile when Bunga is eating snails, Pãgala and the other mongooses fight back again to drive them out of their territory. As the Guard follows Fuli to look for the moja kwa moja stone in the marsh, Pãgala gets knocked into the mongooses as they plan on taking revenge on the Guard.
It is then later figured out that the reason why Pãgala, Krud'dha, and the other mongooses are angry is not because the Lion Guard is entering the marsh but is because Bunga keeps eating their snails as Kion never knew the snails belonged to them. When Makini and Ono emerge from the cavern after getting lost, Ono crashes into a log where Pãgala and his followers find snails as they finally stop attacking and enjoy the snails they find. Bunga attempts to eat one, but Fuli tells him not to as it can cause the same problem again. Having solved the problem with the mongooses, the Lion Guard continues their journey the moja kwa moja stone in the marsh.
