Makucha to Chuluun, Ghost of the Mountain

Makucha's Army, also known as the Army of Predators is an army of evil animals led by Makucha and Mama Binturong. Their goal was to get revenge on Lion Guard and go to the Tree of Life to eat every rare, exotic, weak, injured, and sick animal inhabitants living there. They are the main antagonists of Season 3. The army was originally founded by Makucha and led by both him and Mama Binturong.
