Muhanga has dark tan fur that bears a slight olive tint, with a pale brown face and underbelly and brown eyes. Her legs are dark brown, and her incisive claws are grey. Her tail is a pale cream color, and her nose is tan.
Little is shown of Muhanga's personality, but she is shown to be somewhat territorial and aggressive. She is also somewhat hasty, in that she was quick to accuse Reirei's pack of being thieves and quick to call the Lion Guard when she believed hyenas to be in her den. Also she listens to Bunga's advice.
Muhanga is one of the animals taking part in singing Our Kupatana Community. She is later seen returning to her den with Muhangus. She discovers that Dogo and his siblings have invaded the aardvark dens, much to Muhanga's annoyance. Beshte assures her that he and Bunga will take care of the situation, and the two call for Kion. Muhanga and her mate become even more angry when the father of the jackal pups, Goigoi, steals a fruit from her den, and accuses him of being a thief. Towards the end of the day, she is seen amongst those celebrating Kupatana.
Muhanga is at Mizimu Grove with the other Pride Landers watching as Timon and Pumbaa sing their song. Soon the Army of Scar crashes the Pride Lands and Kion gets the Pride Landers to fight the Outlanders. When Rafiki's tree falls down Scar reveals himself. He explains his plan to the Pride Landers then the herds start to panic and run. The Lion Guard works together to stop them Once the herds are all calm down Simba speaks with the animals over the incident. The herds start to think about leaving the Pride Lands.

They return to Mizimu Grove and see that Makini's Mpando Mpaya have survvied the battle. The herds decide to stay and Makini plants her tree.
