Relationships/Pairings

Parents

In popular fanon, Scar is usually portrayed as favouring, and having a better relationship with, his mother to his father. He's sometimes portrayed as being neglected, or even abused, by Ahadi.

Children

It seems to be a popular headcanon that Scar fathered at least one cub with the lionesses, with the most common appearing to be that Nuka, Zira's eldest son, is his. Vitani will occasionally be headcanoned to be his too, though many others will argue that it doesn't quite work in the timeline of the films. To combat this, some fans headcanon Vitani to be the daughter of Scar and Nala, rather than Scar and Zira - often influenced by the events of The Madness of King Scar.

Because of the seemingly relative popularity of Scar/Sarafina, some fans headcanon that he fathered Mheetu, Nala's younger brother who, though deleted in the final film, often appears in fanworks. Occasionally he'll also be headcanoned as Nala's father too, though many try and avoid this due to a squick towards the incestuous implications.

Origin of his scar

Headcanons regarding the origin of his scar vary:

Depending on which source texts each fan counts as part of canon will very often influence their headcanons regarding the origins of his scar.
