Hapana
~ Ono's Catchphrase

Ono is one of the main characters and the tetartagonist in the 2015 TV film The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar and its 2016 follow-up series The Lion Guard, based on the 1994 film The Lion King. He's a young egret and along with his friends Kion, Bunga, Fuli, and Beshte form The Lion Guard to protect The Pride Lands from threats such as hyenas.

He was voiced by Atticus Shaffer who also voices Peedee Fryman.

Personality

He's one of the more easygoing members of the group, being social and group-oriented. He's used to spending time around other animals and is content to be part of The Lion Guard. Ono is also shown to be blunt, as he is able to lay out his feelings without sugar-coating. He is, by far, the most realistic member of the group, as he constantly thinks things through before jumping in.

Whenever it comes to his role on the Lion Guard, Ono is valiant and has a knack for following procedures. He obeys Kion's orders without question and proves himself to be plucky and thrifty, considerably useful whenever it comes to scouting out a situation. His principles are clear in his preparations to fight with his full heart for the Circle of Life, and he's a valued member of the Lion Guard for his brilliance and ability to see things from afar. During the final confrontation against Scar, Ono rescued Bunga from falling into volcano, consequently sucking so much smog that resulted with near loss of his vision. He lent on his position as the keenest of sight to Anga, but still he remains as a member of the Lion Guard after Kion bestowed him the new title of the smartest.

History

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

When Bunga and Kion race through the Pride Lands playing Baobab Ball, they encounter Ono, who along with his flock, flits fearfully out of their way.

Later, after Kion learns that he is to lead the Lion Guard, he appoints Beshte, Fuli, and Ono to positions on the Guard. He gathers the team together and attempts to show them the Roar of the Elders, but all that comes out is a squeak. Just then, Kion's father Simba shows up and reacts in shock to Kion's decision of teammates. He insists that the Guard must be made of lions only and reprimands Kion for treating his role as leader like a game.

Not long after this, the team learns that the hyenas are attacking a herd of gazelles which have cause a stampede, trapping Kion's older sister Kiara. With no time to lose, Kion assembles the Lion Guard, using his paw to gift each of them with a special shoulder marking.

Together, the five friends attack the hyenas, driving them back into the Outlands. Kion completes the fight with the powerful Roar of the Elders, and even the hyenas' leader Janja departs in horror. Simba happens to watch from a nearby ridge and realizes that his son was judicious to have chosen who he decided. He congratulates his son on the victory and accepts this new, brilliant assembling of steadfast animals.


The Lion Guard

Set after the film, Ono continues serving in The Lion Guard.

In Season 1-2, the Lion Guard continues battling Janja and his clan, through also comes up against other villainous animals such as the new crocodile leader Makuu (who has since reformed), a pack of jackals led by Reirei and most recently, the spirit of Kion's great-uncle Scar (who was the leader of the previous Lion Guard).

Though Kion is the protagonist, Ono is sometimes the focus of certain episodes.

In the Season 3 episode "Battle for the Pride Lands", Ono starts to lose eyesight after saving Bunga from falling into a volcano. Because of this, he passes his title of Keenest of Sight to another bird named Anga and becomes the Smartest member of The Lion Guard. Afterwards, Ono and the Lion Guard leave the Pride Lands to search for the Tree of Life in order to heal himself and Kion (who had been scarred in battle by Scar's snake ally Ushari). In this series, Ono and the Lion Guard come up against their old enemy Makucha and his All in One.

Trivia

  • Ono was the Keenest of Sight in The Lion Guard until his eyesight was impaired, in which case Anga replaces him as such, and he holds a new position: becoming the Smartest of the group.
