Actually, the story goes like this...

If I remember correctly, Scar (born Taka) was a sickly child, and was very physically inept (which is why he looks sleek instead of tough, and why in nearly all events in the movie, he uses wit over brawn, cause he can't fight for **** ), as a result, he was often abused or disregarded by those of his tribe as well as his parents who favoured Mufasa as the next king. Eventually, after so much harsh treatment, he was so embittered by rage that he went off to hunt a pack of wildebeests (or whatever they were) in order to prove he was strong and capable. Well, it didn't turn out that way, he was trampled and mauled over and was just about to die until Mufasa came and saved his life (and also took down one of the beasts), Mufasa was proclaimed a hero, while Taka was again just seen as a weakling who always needed help. Taka then asked Mufasa (and the rest of the tribe) to refer to him as "Scar" instead, for the scar he got in the trample, so he would constantly be reminded of his failure in an effort of motivation to improve.

This is later reflected on in the movie, when Mufasa was trampled by the same beasts who trampled Scar, and the 'saving' happened in a similar manner, except that Mufasa actually helped him up.

Scar is actually a very deep and well-structured character once you know his back-story, and I would say he's arguably one of the most relatable and interesting villains in all of Disney.

Unfortunately that's not true. The incident with the wildebeest was an attempt by Taka to set Mufasa up for failure and trick him. What the trick exactly was, I'm not sure, but it backfired and Taka got a tusk in the face. He asked to be called "Scar" to remind him of his failure.

That's right from one of the Lion King books, and I have put a substantial amount of time into researching this stuff. I freaking love that movie.

User avatar #32 to #30 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (10/30/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure in the Wiki it just says he pissed off a bunch of bison or something, but the comics make it very clear he was looking for recognition.

If it makes you feel better, I THINK he was eventually recognized by Mufasa, their father, and the rest of the herd as the smartest lion of the tribe, although it was like adding insult to injury at that point.
User avatar #41 to #20 - patrickhaha (10/30/2013) [-]
It's funny... Every character has a name that translates from Swahili or Zulu... Scar's is interesting... "Taka" is translated to desire, or want. Which is also a trait he holds, he is envious of Mufasa's status, how he is loved and looked up to, he desires to be like his brother, to be king... Disney even went full on with the name's of the characters matching their personalities. I love it!
#99 to #41 - anon (10/31/2013) [-]
Actually "Taka" just means "scar".

in 2006, (the second book was released 2005, the third not until 2008) they made a movie that only keeps the beginning barely the same, and the rest is made up. As a stand alone movie is was sub-par at best, as a movie based on a book it was god awful.

Hook and his crew are an entire group of lost boys, if I remember correctly.
#11 to #1 - fuckthepopo (10/30/2013) [-]
all wrong and all stupid holy **** did you even read the story you ignorant **** ?

The lost boys are never killed by Peter Pan. The book describes "thinning them out" when they grow up. The only reason any of the lost boys would be killed is when Tinkerbell being jealous of Wendy being the mother convinced Tootles to try and kill her with a bow and arrow. He fires at her with a crossbow giving her severe injuries. This enrages Peter but because Wendy survives the injuries tootles is never killed.

The only instance any lost boy was killed was in the movie called "Hook" which describes an actual grown up Peter Pan. A lost boy, "Rufio" is introduced and is killed by Captain Hook. Brutal, but it happened.

But you might ask, "How are the lost boys thinned out after they grow up?" The answer is actually very simple: they leave Neverland in the books. In the Disney movie the lost boys actually never grow up. Of course in the books they can choose not to grow up as well for a sequel to the book "Return to Neverland" many of the original lost boys remain children. However, it's referenced that the twins eventually grew up to work in an office.

The lost boys were never killed, or orphaned. You are just really, really ******* stupid. Captain Hook was never a lost boy, either. In a non-canon novel, "Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth", Captain James Hook is the son of a nobleman who is an illegitimate son. It describes his childhood, his teenage years and how he began his career as a brigand.

Oh, what? You got your information from a POST YOU READ ON TUMBLR? Well, how about that, you are an uneducated **** who believes everything he reads on the internet. Well, good job, you won a prize as being the most uninformed ****** ever.

Hook was not his real name, have anyone actually read the book?
"Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze"
His last words in the original play were "Floreat Etona", meaning he attended Eton college in UK. Clothes he was wearing were inspired by Charles the I. Implications were that Hook was a rightful king of Great Britain through Stuart line.
