At first, Kion wasn't sure why the gorilla was knocking down trees in the Pride Lands. When Bunga said they were the Lion Guard he stopped and Kion thought he was friendly. Kion didn't mind too much about cleaning Shujaa's messes. When he used his roar Shujaa thought that was the best thing he ever saw.
At first, Bunga wasn't sure why the gorilla was knocking down trees in the Pride Lands. He started to fight Shujaa but Shujaa thought it was a nice back rub. Kion tells Bunga to stop becomes he thought that Shujaa was friendly. Bunga was surprised to meet someone stronger than Beshte. Later while cleaning up Bunga was happy that Shujaa crashes a rock into a termite mound.
Fuli thinks Shujaa's great strength makes him too dangerous. She wonders if he needed any help while fighting Scar's army. She was also worried that Shujaa was going to make it home without knocking anything over.
Even thought Muhangus got annoyed at Shujaa for blocking the enterance to his caverns. The two were on good terms and Shujaa even tried to help move the rock. However the rock crashes into a termite mound.
All through these two haven't met, Scar got mad when his army got beaten by a Gorilla. So he comes up with a new plan. He lets his army pretend to attack, so that way, Shujaa can destroy the Pride Lands for them. Shujaa later describes him as scary when he sees him in Battle for the Pride Lands on top of Pride Rock.
