Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

  • u are smart

  • Really? You are telling us to not overthink it?

  • 12:23 Hector?

  • So if tiktol is a little bit the same as youtube that means I should not trust youtube ;)

  • This was supposed to be a reference to Hamlet.

  • I have the most beautiful thing in the world

  • Write a theory on that because also on the monkey sometimes

  • That looks like graffiti skull because really freaky didn’t come back

  • 7:54 they have South African accents you heathen😂

  • I like how matpat is expecting to have the lion king to have all that detail in a skull

  • lions do eat other male lions cubs so that they can make room for their own cubs that they have with the mother of the cubs he just killed

    • my dad is a vet who has done work in Africa on lions and serval cats

  • 6:16 poor Marty where is Alex and others to save him like with fossa chase HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

  • Hyenas are basically garbage disposals with legs. Lol 😂😂 Am I the only one who laugh at that?

  • This was posted april 1st ngl i kinda think he is pulling a joke

  • Debunk theory? 4th channel idea?

  • There are two subspecies of lions: Panthera leo leo (Western Lion) and Panthera leo melanochaita (Southern Lion). The Asian Lion is just a population of Panthera leo leo.

  • When a herbivore is eaten by a carnivore (Trophic Level 3), again only around 10% of the herbivore’s energy passes to the carnivore. Much has been lost through heat production, faecal waste and the fuelling of the herbivore’s own internal processes. We are now left with only 1% of the original energy that the plants absorbed from the sun. This is not a lot.

  • Every single carnivore eats bones. Around 10 percent of their diet is bone. Hyenas just eat a lot more of them. Around 25 percent of their diet.

  • Hyenas and leopards are two animals that have the capability to eat lions. They don’t tend to go for the healthy lions. These two usually go for the youth of lions or for the elderly and sick. That sums it up though, lions don’t have too many threats to worry about!

  • Best movie ever was The Shawshank Redemption. Best animated movie is Spirited Away.

  • I forgot that the lions were brothers, I really need to watch movies again.

  • I just wasted 16min of my life

  • So... Scar ate Rafiki’s long lost brother?!

  • Scar: "Guys I have some terrible news *BURPS* Pardon I had a big lunch.....any way, Mufasa he dead" (♩how bizarre♩)

  • This is matpat proving that he doesn't cherry pick details while dunking on people who actually cherry pick details

  • 1:51 The world is over.

  • What if nemo's dad is griefing so much and staying away from other fish he went into a inf sleep and is in a dream

  • Nuummmy

  • scare never got fully eaten because in hercules he wears scares body.

  • Now all I'm thinking is a possible subplot to the Lion King where there was a hit out on Rafiki and the hyenas just killed a random baboon and gave him to scar. So the reason he said "It is time" was now is the time for Himself to come out from hiding and find the lost heir.

  • :( NO TIK TOK for real?

  • I can't believe he didn't mention that this is Hamlet with animals instead of humans.

  • before i watch the reveal of the skull i think its some sort of ape cuz that is the perfect skull for a mandrill or baboon.

    • if u classify a madrill/baboon as a ape not a monkey I WAS RIGHT!

  • I think Scar actually ate the monkey priest!

  • I just have a question about when Simba and Nala have cubs. So in the first movie, after running away from home, Simba meets Timon and Pumbaa who raise him and make him eat bugs in the wildlife. But after Simba becomes king of the Pride Lands, Simba and Nala have a daughter and a son. So are their cubs going to eat bugs for the rest of their lives? Or did Simba resume to eating meat after reuniting with his pride? And what if their children get older? Do their cubs eat bugs or meat? Because how strange does it sound when the Lion Guard goes to save animals in the Pride Lands? Wouldn't it be weird for them to save animals only to eat them when they get older?

  • Vultures eat dead animals too wtf

  • There's one which in The Amazing World Of Gumball is Rachel Wilson (the character from season 1) became the ruler of the void by the staff who run Elmore. The powers she got was charging at S2 and it using it to reset the world at the last minute of The Finale. She still runs it since season 3-6.

  • You really need to make this one a series, where you carefully debunk stupid tiktok theories that go viral

  • L

  • Oh shut up

  • You just ruined it

  • wtf i just checked the lion gang actually have those names

  • Manjiglane killed kinky tail I searched kinky tails death

  • Fun fact is cringy

  • lots of comments ... but did anyone mention vultures ... they eat dead animals...not sure about bones but maybe ..and i mean maybe .... they are what cleaned Mufasa up after his death ... that is my theory

  • At least Scar would have eaten Simba and all other cups. And by the way if Mufasar was the pack leader and so Simba and Nala are sibblings. And also Scar probably mated with the Lionesses.

  • Admit it, tiktok sucks

  • lion king: litterally shows that animal talking MatPat: Uses real life lion as theory

  • The instant I saw the skull (in this video, as it's been many years since I've watched this movie) I absolutely knew it was a baboon skull. Baboons have scary looking canines primarily used for intimidation, but the rest of their teeth look more like humans. Lions do eat baboons, especially little ones as they have no way to defend themselves against large predators. So, I agree with MatPat.

  • you forgot sm else. wouldn't his skull be crushed in, or have some sort of injury or crack, seeing as he was just trampled by wildebeest. even though they don't show him being injured

  • what I think is the his body got buried

  • Matpat : hyenas don’t eat lions Me: dude hyenas ATE scar that how he died. Gee, you TOTALLY respect what happens in old good movies...

  • scar ate mufasa to hide the evdendce

  • Theory would Anna go insane after spending years locked in the castle completely alone

  • ...

  • And the moral of this story.... Don't EVER trust TikTok.

  • Don't let the flame die out.

  • They should do a video on dinosaur train lore

  • This theory may be debunked, but it does make the movie a little bit more interesting so...Headcannon accepted!

  • yes he did

  • Maybe, the hyenas ate mufasa's body and scar told them to not eat his skull

  • bruh dez not mufasa's head

  • Are you game theorists and Food theorists?

  • this should be in food theory

    • why are you booing im right

  • 9.69 Million subs lol funny armor

  • 0:57 "Epic but intimate" HMMMMM SOMEHOW REMINDS ME OF A SONG.... (hehehe)

  • MatPat: "Its morty time!" Me: Leave your entries in the sub-reddit pokefans- oh wait wrong youtuber

  • Hey you shoud make a video about how ratoutaille moves the ginger dude with his hair.just spreading the idea from a person

  • Sir you are under dap po po arrest. Aresst afficailed by whom it may concern, Officer Renz of the video viewers

  • Kinda want to rewatch the documentary about the Mapongo brothers

  • Matpat that ticktoker is wrong when simba returns hes mistaken for mufasa by scar how did that happen if scar knew he ate him

  • So we ain’t gonna talk about 1:53 that totally is not from mandjtv

  • he says original but I heard that they took it from a past employee after they found out about his idea

  • I mean I did notice the bone but I tought it was a gazel

  • Reject lion Realize it monke

  • ofcourse hyenas can eat see they eaten scar

  • The teeth on the skull are not lion teeth

  • In the Broadway adaptation of TLK, there is a large feline skull at the front of the pile of bones on which Scar reclines in the opener to the second act, “The Madness of King Scar”. I think having that skull there is a callback to the scene in the movie where Scar plays with a skull as Zazu entertains him with the coconut song.

  • A deleted scene from The Lion King shows Scar proposing to Nala. That disturbed me more than this theory....

  • There is no asean lion. There is only african lions and Indian lions. Big error.

  • Yeah idk if an ecosystem can be so fragile that if one lion dies away from where it would naturally can destroy it

  • Am I the only one who really wants a “The Promised Neverland” theory

  • Its aspitipy

  • Maybe scar was just hungry

  • Literally this theory horrified me

  • TikTok did it TikTok did it *slap my face*

  • Y u m

  • 14:41 wait a minute, doesn’t that shadow kind of look like pumbaa?

  • how much gold was in the mountain of the dwarves in the hobbit

  • I unsubbed so I could resub. #roadto10million

  • you should really do a video of insideout

  • He makes these theories sound ACTUALLY REAL and then I question if it’s true after he goes “BUT THATS JUST A THEORY A FILM THEORY”

  • That's a baboon skull :/

  • lmao. some dude tries to make a film theory and matt pat sprends 2.5 mins of going on a tagent, about a lion documentary he watched. then says therre wrong on every point because science

  • Wait.. there’s only two male lions in the lion king and scar isn’t nalas father so.. oh no

  • "a lion eating another lion, would be very, very rare" well done sir, well done.

  • The cage that Scar put the Bird in is probably is Mufasa's body too.

  • nice MayPat

  • Predators don't have other predators on their menus because, whey the go out to eat, they're looking for a meal, not a fight

  • Cannibalism is the least popular method of eating, but when faced with starvation, there isn't many options available
