AppearanceEdit

Kimba is a white lion with blue eyes, black-tipped ears and tail. The only time this changes is in the 2009 special, which gives him red-brown eyes, in the 1997 film and the Hon-o-ji special, which gives him brown.

Personality Edit

Kimba is strong character with true moral fiber. He always stands up for what he believes in, even if that means making the ultimate sacrifice.

 

In Jungle EmperorEdit

Leo here is much the same as he is the TV series, with minor differences. At the beginning of the story, he has more anthropomorphic features (including dressing trousers). The final ending of the story it's different from the one of Leo the Lion and was more faithfully represented in Jungle Emperor Leo.

In Kimba the White LionEdit

Kimba is kind, caring cub who always looks out for his friends. Innocent and idealistic, he sees the world of humans and tries to use it to make the lives of his animal friends better, but this is slow process. He is determined and loyal, and often goes out of his way to avoid a fight, though he sometimes loses his temper.

In Leo the LionEdit

Now an adult, Kimba has grown into a fine lion. He still has occasional issues with his anger, but is otherwise a fair and kind ruler. When his cubs are born, he is over-joyed. However he quickly establishes himself as a stern father, helping Rune "run away" from home. All in all, he is very much the same, except grown up. The series however show more episodes with Kimba fighting or wounding and even killing his opponents. The ending of the series differs from the original manga (Jungle Emperor)

In Jungle Emperor (1989) Edit

Leo is shown as a "teen" (not yet adult but older than in "Kimba the White Lion"). The series explore more dark aspects of the character, including a brief arc of episode when Leo choose a voluntary exile from the Jungle. In the last episodes of the series is revealed that Leo (differently from the other adaptation) hunts for prey.

In Jungle Emperor LeoEdit

Leo is serious character, refusing to fight unless he has to, but prone to protective anger. He is caring father and a loyal friend.

In Jungle Emperor: The Brave Can Change the FutureEdit

Leo here is vastly different from any other portrayal of him. He is friendly, but easily frightened and has low self-esteem. He looks up to his father, and tries to prove he is as worthy of respect as Panja is.
