<i>"You know Afua, my best friend? Well, he's not my best friend anymore," said Kopa. "All Afua wants to do is hang around with Beba. He doesn't want to play with me anymore."

Timon started pacing back and forth. Then he stopped, holding his finger in the air. "I remember now," he said with a big smile. "Beba is the cheetah cub. He runs all over the place."

"Right," said Kopa. "Afua thinks Beba is the fastest runner and the best climber and the highest jumper around."

"And what do you think?" asked Pumbaa.

"I think Beba is even stupider than Afua," said Kopa. "And I don't want to play with either of them anyway."

The Lion King and Beyond
I've done several group pictures of various lions recently, so I thought I'd do a group picture of the most common feline species in the TLK universe besides lions -- cheetahs.

These are all of the known cheetah characters in the TLK universe (with single examples for nameless characters of which more than one appear, like the cheetahs in the TLK game). I would have included a guide to the characters in this picture, but decided I didn't want any text cluttering up the picture. I am uploading another picture which names each of them, though.

"Beba" is a cheetah cub whose name appears in the book TLK6NA - A Snake in the Grass. Kopa is upset because his friend Afua thinks that Beba is the best at everything. There is no picture of Beba in the book. This is my personal design.

Some info: A while ago, I thought it made sense for Beba to be related to Swifty/Plus-Vite/Faster/Epesi, another cheetah (around Simba's age) who appeared in a French magazine. Akril I think had the idea for Beba to actually be Swifty's son, which I liked. So my design for Beba is very similar to Swifty, but with his own identifying characteristics.

Kopa and his friends had been told repeatedly to stay away from the camp of the mysterious two-leggeds. Rafiki had even threatened Nefu with extra chores if he went anywhere near the place. So naturally, the kids had to check it out. What they found was fascinating. Nefu wondered whether these "humans" as his uncle called them could be so bad. Look at all the great stuff they have to tear up!

For the contest. This was inspired by the "Trashing the camp" scene from Tarzan (although the camp isn't nearly as messy in this pic...yet).

I opted to forgo Kovu's mane in an effort to make him look younger. I also made his ear rims thicker. My theory is that they fade as he ages, like Simba's did.

Poor Kopa. XD

And yes, he really went looking for his family tree in a book called "Vulture Shock"...

Semi-canon XD
Hey sorry to my watchers I haven't uploaded in so long XD College keeps me pretty busy :p. This is Kopa along with Beba the cheetah from tlk6na. In the book where he's mentioned Kopa is jealous of Beba, so this pic is of Kopa saying something to Afua like "Aw, you brought him again?!" ya know something to that effect :) lol.

Sketcher doodle of Afua from about six months ago. I like the idea of Afua being the son of Malka and Tama. :3 As far as I know, I was the first one on the Archive to work under that theory - this July '09 picture was the upload where I initially mention it:

Here's some more old Afua pics to make up for the fact that this is an old doodle:

Ooo, flashback time! Most of the dialogue on this page is from this: I changed some bits to make the text shorter.

not-so-oldies! 2010-2012
Kopa and Beba. Kopa is well-known amongst TLK fans as beeing Simba's son in the novels Six New Adventures. Beba is described as a cheetah cub friend of Kopa, who hangs out with Kopa and another lion cub named Afua. Both Beba and Afua are described in the books, but there's no illustration of them. Beba is not much drawn by fan artists, so I had to do this.

No, it's not Fuli, nor Swifty. =P It's Beba, a cheetah cub who is mentioned in a book called "A Snake In The Grass". He doesn't have an official design, this is just my version.
