    Never miss a Film Theory! ►

    Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

      . They do not prefer eating other predators' meat. Unless if they are in absolutely desperate times. Another reason why lions do not eat other lions is that they do not provide enough energy.

    3. Asma Sarwar

      Do hyenas eat dead lions? . Commonly known as scavenging animals, hyenas eat dead organisms. Yet, hyenas are hunters as well, and they hunt about 80% of their prey.

      Congratulations for 10M!!!!!!!

    5. Suvan

      7:45 wait didn’t we see that the kingdom was doing very bad and going through dark times, it’s like they were in desperate times to eat another lion? 9:15 also wasn’t scar kinda a rival of Mufasa

    6. Chester Jon Agan

      my brother makes tik tok abaot ml his foviriet game

    7. Jayla Kilson

      "That's why you don't believe Disney movies or TikTokers" such a weird thing to say about TikTok makers once you consider that people have said similar things about FIblockrs. I think anyone on any platform can make good points if their arguments are based in fact lol. If those arguments aren't factual, discuss that, but don't invalidate the entirety of content on the platform. Seems weird and somewhat outdated thinking to me

    8. shadow the hedgehog

      Mat:gasp* does that mean ???:tik tok did it tik tok already did it

    9. sniper anime Mvita

      Your crazy

    10. czech ball

      Thank you film theory for making this video I was wondering this omg

    11. Charl Loubser

      So funny thing... Scar doesn't eat Mufasa, the hyenas ate him Scar just plays with his skull

    12. Yxng Snoodle

      Also when simba comes back at the end, doesn’t scar say something like “mufasa I thought you were dead” and if scar had eaten him he would even think that it could’ve been mufasa, as he’d have eaten him

    13. Una Broady-Davis

      I completely agree with MatPat on this theory but... I'm just a little skeptical because this video was posted on April Fool's Day....

    14. MarshPlayz

      U saw the tik tok and then u came here for further clarification right

    15. Frosty box

      hello im new but didn't the hyenas eat scar too sowe already know that hyenas eat lions so they eated Mufasa and scar

    16. Pratima Heisnam

      I search that but Google say like this. "lions don't eat other lions"

    17. OnyxTh3Ripqer

      The skull is simply too small. Lions do have a lot of fur and skin, but their skulls aren't small enough to be held by the claws of another lion. That's just not possible. (Or if maybe it was just a lion cub the hyenas ate?) (OR- the body might have been taken away and buried (or left there) against Scar's orders.)

    18. OnyxTh3Ripqer

      1:28 That actually says "Maypat". Maypat is Matpat in another runiverse. The genderswap.

    19. Stranger

      Lol he just kept on adding weight

    20. Angie Thompson

      petition: Matthew makes the fourth theory channel to rate other theories.

    21. Abigail Tardanico

      Didn't scar die to and if he ate his brother car died who ate him

    22. Dinodude01

      Ama debunk this tiktokers whole theory

    23. FIshyPlayz

      speaking of 10m you have 10m

    24. CthulhuianBunny

      As soon as I saw the thumbnail I thought "Yeah... no. That's a baboon skull."

    25. BatRex

      Another prove that make me for sure tiktokers just post anything for views and they are kind of dumb

    26. Xmarksthebeauty XOforlife010

      this just goes to show i get convinced quick XD

    27. Janrick Gabriel Rapsing Santos


    28. Samuel Ross

      Oh my goodness thank you, I watched the TikTok and it pissed me off how wrong they were and everyone in the comments is like “lion king is ruined” uhhhh I’m glad someone could use their brain and see how ridiculous this is.

    29. Kyo

      Bro it’s a Disney movie not real life scar could’ve been hungry and ate him


      And I hate I hate I hate tik tok

    31. xXMilliePlaysXx

      Since that was probably a baboon skull could that mean that Scar ate one of Rafiki’s relatives?


      And my Disney store plushies and Lion King Broadway 🎭 Scar Mask and plushie


      And my figurine of him is beautiful Both my handmade air dry clay figurines And my Walt Disney classics collection Jim shore Disney traditions and my classic old old ceramic figurine of him


      I’m not sorry


      And he’s everybody’s favourite Disney Villain And he’s a borderline transvestite Frank N Furter Impersonator And personally I wouldn’t have him any other way Jeremy irons scar is MY SCAR Chiwetels was abysmal

    36. Jeff Dollaz

      Baboon skull

    37. Dusty Durant

      It's is actually unclear if scar did or not eat mufasa I'm mean if it was contrary part of that scene when scar is looking at skull of what could be mufasa head or it could be the head of another lion that scar could have known

    38. Stacy 1091

      I think it's just an Easter egg referring to the Hamlet. You know, the skull scene.

    39. kitty icecream

      I had to send this to me friend

    40. Diaval X

      Well, Hyenas do you eat the baby lion but usually do not attack adult lions. But when they do they will hunt in larger packs. The rogue lions will eat other lions only baby lions

    41. Victoria Scott Home

      Umm… that’s a baboon skull, and, based on the fact this show was created because of Hamlet, it’s likely the skull of his jester.

    42. Ana Noe

      the skull that scar was holding was a baboon skull

    43. Corie del Rio

      PLEASE PLEASE take a crack at “The Lion Guard”! Where was Kion during that sequel ? How does the whole scar poison thing work? Dude this show is both immature and incredibly dark! Blindings, evil ghosts, rage inducing snake bites, and circle of life fueled superpowers. Soooo much to unpack!!!

    44. Ember Productions

      Out of all the sins Scar had committed, at least cannibalism wasn’t on the list.

    45. Ytbvdshrtnr

    46. Lawrence Ghartey

      I love this guy he not only has great theories but he is real funny

    47. Neielvaughn Tagulao

      Tiktok: *does a theory and claims it's true* Matpat: ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THAT🤔

    48. Glam girl

      Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeat bruh haa lol

    49. RedFoxx

      Omg it gets darker when MatPat put it this way..

    50. Tiger Rose

      I feel like this theory was made to shock people rather than made as an actual theory

    51. Amir Mehraban

      But why did hyenas eat scar at end

    52. Jessica Dias

      Alright guys, Here we go sorry to do this. But look at the skull and the comparative pictures at 3:48. Look at the brow ridge above the eye sockets then look at the comparative lion's skull. Felines don't have a brow ridge like that, primates do. Lions also don't have flattened molars. Primates do. That's a baboon skull

    53. Der Flamingo

      If you dont consider the ,,its not a lion skull" bit, you have to keep in mind: lions are just animals with no connection to their victims, but Scar is one of the most evil Characters of Disney and kinda hated Mufasa. I don't think he would let anyone eat him, besides himself, just out of pure spite. Scar would be probably the most brutal Villain in Disney History

    54. Galit Aral

      Also the skull is also the skull is the same size of scar

    55. KeithTotally

      the fact that this was originally from a tiktok and Matpat saw it-

    56. Caleb Alstot

      Scar EAT Mufasa

    57. Steve Preston

      What if Scar ate Rafiki's relative or something?

    58. Fidget Fun

      Any Peppa pig theory pls 😊

    59. ytdszeaz1234

      tiktok: imma cross the theory line whats the worst that could happe- matpat: GET DEBUNKED ON

    60. Digonto Rashid

      Here's a theory I've been thinking about for a while and I'm sure you can answer it, in super Mario 64 is the 3rd ball you find on the 2nd mission of bob-omb battle field actually the corpse of king bob-omb?

    61. A axolotl

      The actual most popular movie is jurassic world

    62. Rob Stahl

      Yes completely makes sense OMG

    63. The guardian's lair

      Short answer: No, that's a baboon skull

    64. Easten Morton

      Dude where not in science class

    65. freddy krueger

      It's a baboon skull!! I looked it up and they match.

    67. brentithecutiejk idk


    68. Cullen McCarten

      It said " Cullen is king "

    69. ImMaisuradze

      Bruh theres one more evidence that hyena will eat lion, so in the end when simba defeats scar he throws him down and then hyenas appear and eat him

    70. Cláudia Duarte

      "Simba, quando morremos, o nosso corpo transforma-se em erva. E os antílopes comem a erva. E assim, estamos todos ligados, no grande ciclo da vida." - faz soar alguma coisa?!! O Mufasa tornou-se parte do Ciclo da Vida! O seu corpo sumiu naturalmente! Levaram vários anos para que o Simba crescesse!! O que significa que, por essa altura, o cadáver do seu pai estivesse reduzido a ossos. Se, por acaso, a caveira que o Scar estava a segurar pertencesse ao irmão, provavelmente, ele foi buscá-la mais tarde...

    71. Cláudia Duarte

      There is, literally, a scene in the movie where Simba and Nala run away from the hyenas to not be their “lunch”!! WTF?!

    72. Bethany Allen

      In the lion king at the point you see scar with the skull it is desperate times. There is no more food in the pride lands. So that means Scar did eat his brother.

    73. Icyarm


    74. Charles dolling

      It looks like a baboon skull

      1. Charles dolling

        My bad didn’t watch the full video

      “TikTok! You shameless!” What’s new

    80. YourMomGae

      I was smart as a child and thought Scar had eaten Rafeeki 👁👄👁

    81. Noorrise Noorrise

      It’s a movie maybe it’s fiction

    82. Dominique Reeves

      I always thought the hyenas ate him. Especially the scene when the hyenas attack Scar at the end.

    83. Elijah Flax

      Legit tell my girlfriend everyday to stop listening to tik tok

    84. aishee karla j. caspe

      scar's holding is babb oons

    85. gacha_dark123

    86. Weeklongwind 647

      1:30 nope it did not say that. It said SFX…

    87. David Zamorski

      still scar could have eaten mufasa the skull maybe have been old bad edit skills and you said that lions still eat other lions and scar was hungry in the movie and scars henchmen left leaving the body with scar to eats.

    88. Dillan Gutierrez

      It's Rick and Morty time 1:51

    89. fifipopstar
