Baobab Ball is a game in which a baobab fruit is passed between a minimum of at least two players. It can evolve into a competition of another nature, as Bunga and Kion are known to wrestle over the fruit on occasion rather than pass it back and forth.
Baobab Ball is first introduced by Kion, who interrupts Kiara's morning lesson with their father, Simba. He and Bunga begin a heated game of Baobab Ball, until Simba tells them to take their game elsewhere. Leaving Simba and Kiara in peace, Bunga and Kion chase each other across the Pride Lands, tossing the fruit back and forth. A friendly giraffe even gets involved, but the game eventually ends when the baobab fruit rolls into the Outlands.
Bunga and Kion are playing Baobab Ball, wrestling for the ball until Bunga is able to take it. He holds it above his head and teases his friend, but their game is interrupted by Jasiri. As Kion and Jasiri set off, Bunga deems himself the winner of the match.
The Lion Guard play a game of Baobab Ball, with Mtoto joining in. However, during their game, Kion and Bunga fall off a cliff after it collapses from their weight due to the oncoming Dry Season weather. When they have composed themselves, Mtoto appears behind them with the fruit in his trunk and the game continues. When Mtoto hears his mother calling him, the game is finished, when the Guard become intrigued by his powerful hearing ability.
