  • Fuji is not a cheetah. If anything shes a Jaguar. She doesn't have the markings of a cheetah.

    • Her character description says she's a cheetah. They said she was a cheetah when they first announced the series back in 2014.

    • Then its lazy research it will confuse children.

      She looks nothing like a cheetah. I have worked with cheetah. They have pokadot spots and tear marks on their eyes leading to their mouths, she has non of these things.

      Even in the original lion king they got the cheetah right!

    • I've you're gonna go that far, then sure. Her markings don't look like a cheetahs. But egrets don't look like Ono. Honey badgers don't look like Bunga. And their lion cub faces have always looked more like Tiger cubs. It's a childrens show... They won't even notice.... Besides. They have magic pawprints appear on their arms. And the roars of Kion's descendents appear in the clouds behind him. Who said it was the least bit realistic?

    • The only reason I am even on this page is because I wanted to see what animal she actually was. After I saw her running fast in the trailer I assumed she was a cheetah but then after seeing her I was left genuinely confused because I had no idea what she was suppose to be. The original Lion King was renowned for the effort that was put into making the animals look realistic accurate. They studied real animals to get the animations and looks just right. It's disappointing to see these overly cartoonish takes of animals that don't really fit into the world of previous films and are in some cases entirely inaccurate. There's a difference between symbolism and a lack of research. The watching 'kings of the past' has been in all the films. It is very different to just having a yellow cat with some leopard spots and passing it off as a cheetah. Of course it's aimed at children but I think they may know more than you are giving them credit for and it probably will confuse some of them. I certainly knew what a cheetah looked like when I was a child and with the internet and exposure modern children get I'm sure many of them do too. It's a shame the animators don't.

    • Wait, jaguars don't live in African countries, don't they? They live in South America. So I think she might be a leopard.

      there was a leopard called Badili in one of the episodes which looked different to Fuli so she must not be a leopard

    • Ever seen a king cheetah? My guess is Fuli must be one of those.

      And Makucha is an adult leopard. It has been mentioned that they made mistakes in Fulis design.

    • No Need to Argue This wildcat isn't the only species who doesn't look natural but is what the wikis say in her intro, she's a cheetah with incorrectly shaped spots just like Tabaqui has an appearance colored incorrectly even though he's still the golden jackal. By sight Tabaqui looks like a fox in one of his animated appearances in TV series.

    • I still say she's a king cheetah. That being said, cheetahs can't roar, something they made Fuli do in a couple recent episodes.

    • What would happen if Fuli turned out to be the daughter of the king and queen of cheetahs because we do not see other cheetahs on the lions' land and Fuli had to be born somehow maybe the cheetahs have their kingdom and they left Fula because of the different look
