- "'Does it have leaves?' he asks. 'Or fruit'?"
- —Babu, laughing at Kopa
Babu is a sandy-colored lion with a tuft of darker brown fur on the end of his tail.
Babu's personality is unknown.
When Kopa, Simba's son, is asking Leo about "his family tree", he asks if it has any leaves or fruit on it. Babu giggles at this, obviously amused at Kopa's confusion. This is the only time he's seen in Vulture Shock.
