That is not Kion. It's Nala's father, Kion's grandfather, when he was a cub. And you did not watch the whole thing. Kion's grandfather did fall from a big branch. But he was saved by the Lion Guard of his day.

Rafiki, Paintings and Predictions

Nala’s Father is the father of Nala, the father-in-law of Simba, and the maternal grandfather of Kiara and Kion.

He is mentioned, and appears in a cave painting in Paintings and Predictions.

Appearance

Nala's Father compared to his grandson, Kion

Though only shown in one of Rafiki's painting as a cub, Nala's father had gold fur with light yellow paws and underbelly, a white chin and a red tuft of hair on his head and a tuft of red hair on the tip of his tail.

His appearance in this painting bears a striking resemblance to Rafiki's paintings of his grandson Kion.

History

Prior to The Lion Guard

Sometime during his childhood, Nala's father fell down from a tree branch, but was rescued by the Lion Guard of his time.

Upon reaching adulthood, he met a lioness and had a daughter with her named Nala. What happened to him after this is unknown.

Saved by the Guard

Nala's father is seen as a painting on Rafiki's wall. Bunga points out the curious cub to Beshte, and the pair mistake him for his grandson, Kion. As Bunga taps the staff on the image, they watch with horror as he plummets from the tree. Unable to handle the outcome, Bunga removes the staff too soon, which prevents them from seeing the final outcome.

Later on, however, Rafiki reveals that it is in fact Nala's father, who, when he was a cub, fell from a tree, but was saved by the Lion Guard of his time. He shows Bunga the whole event by finishing the whole animation.

Cave of Secrets

During the song
Cave-of-secrets (21)
"The Wisdom on the Walls", one of the paintings of the past shows the same painting of Nala's father in a tree.
