Where's your pretty daughter, Nala? by Kitchiki Where's your pretty daughter, Nala? by Kitchiki
I've been wanting to draw this for like, a year xDDD But never got round to it.
This is my NUMBER ONE favourite fan theory!

Here's my take on it:

During Scar's reign, Nala gives birth to Vitani (Probably with Scar, like the deleted scene where he tries to seduce her), and knowing that Scar would kill her (She would not be important in his 'host of little Scars') she takes her to Zira (I always liked the idea they were friends at this point), knowing that Scar is in good terms with her, and would spare the cub, and begs her to hide Vitani until she (Zira) gives birth to the cub she is expecting (Kovu), then claim that Vitani is Kovu's twin! After Zira reluctantly accepts, Nala heads back to claim to Scar that the cub did not make the birth.

After the battle between Simba and Scar, as Nala chooses to stay in the Pridelands instead of go with Zira, Zira grows a hatred towards Nala and feels betrayed.

As an adolescent, Vitani learns of her real past and grows a bitter anger towards Nala (after being fed lies by Zira that Scar would have spared her and Nala just didn't want her as she was weak at birth), knowing that she could have lived a healthy life in the Pridelands, rather than rot away in the Outlands-hence her bitterness towards Nala in the final battle scene, and the the hint of a deeper meaning in the above quote~

I agree! I've read this somewhere too. I think that when Simba returns and takes back priderock Simba will not allow Vitani to become part of the pride as a cub because it wasn't his and Nala's

This is one of my favorite theory's. Vitani looks so much like Nala and nothing like Zira. ^^

I love the idea. I wondered how Scar and Nala where getting along when Simba was gone and Mufasa dead...  And with your background story Vitanis line makes finally sense.

This is an interesting theory and the picture is touching:) Though I believe Vitani is Zira's daughter.

To me when she says "Where's your pretty daughter Nala?" she is basically mocking Nala for her losing a daughter (which is Simba's fault) and Nala must have found out Vitani was part of the fields being burnt that day and almost killed Kiara.

Very nice picture,
this is my favorite fan theory about Lion king but I like the version where Nala leaves Vitani to herself, cuz she was the result of Scar's rape...  Yeah I know it shows Nala as a bitch but heys she can't be perfect... =P (Razz)

i love that pairing, I've actually have a bond with kopa (if you know what I mean I don't mean to sounds insane) In my version I created him with a smart alecky personally, and a boaster, so  yeah, but I agree with you, that line just...gah!
but what if vita I killed one of nala's daughters :O
no...

:icongaaraleesandninja:
GaaraLeeSandNinja Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2014
meh... I personally think it's overkill to have both the Prince and Princess of the Outlands marry the Princess and Prince of the Pridelands (technically, Kovu and Vitani are a Prince and a Princess as their mother rules over a territory) but that's just me. On top of that, in the canon/semi-canon universe, Kopa and Vitani have absolutely zero interaction and it's speculated that Kopa is murdered by Zira as revenge for the death of (in my mind) her mate, King, and father of her first born cub (I'm all for Nuka being the son of Scar.). 

I know there will always be supporters of Kopa and Vitani being together but I just don't see it nor do I like it. I picture Vitani simply hooking up with a rogue if or when she has cubs.

True, also if you think about it the time-lap (is that even a thing??) doesn't work, vita I would be way older than kopa, if she met scar.
but she had to since Kovu and vita I are the same age, or kovu's younger.

:icongaaraleesandninja:
GaaraLeeSandNinja Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2014
Kovu could be younger, or they could have been born about the same time. Kovu and Vitani are quite a bit older than Kiara so the timeline makes sense. Scar named Kovu as his heir, "Hand-chosen by Scar, to follow in his pawprints." Which I take to mean that Scar was present at Kovu's birth, or shortly there-after. Alot of fans believe that Nuka, Kovu and Vitani were all born in the pridelands before the banishment of Zira and her pride.

SilverLi0n1 Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah.
but it still doesn't make sense, because Kovu was about the same size as kiara...

And if you are still not convinced take a look at ANY Nala plush (for example th05.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i… ), Nala figure (acimg.auctivacommerce.com/imgd…) or any other Nala's merchandise.
You won't find any with blue eyes.

never heard of that so I really doubt it, but all the screencaps and merchandise confirm they are green, so ... yup, green.

But well, if you are happy ... you can also think that her eyes are pink if you want. That won't change the truth.
You won't find any picture or merchandise with Nala in blue eyes, so honestly I don't see the point here.

YES, they look green and are green. That is one of the Nala kissing plushes, I have it and her eyes are Green --> spunkyplushandstuff.com/wp-con…. Is just that the photo you showed has dark lightning.

Also in the movie, as you can see in the images I sent you, when her eyes seem darker is because of the light. Under the sun her eyes are Green. There is no doubt about that.

I love this theory! It can fit with work and I like your variation on things. I read one fanfic variation where she found out this information after the movie, and one variation where Zira sort of stole her from Nala, or Nala gave her up for some reason with regret of course.

One of the fics ended with Vitani joining another pride and marrying the future king there, and had a daughter with him.

Overall I like this theory and am glad I am not the only one.

It just makes so much sense to me. They look similar, Vitani's words to Nala during the fight, the look on Vitani's face when Kiara says "Look at them, they ARE us", and the fact that after that, Vitani did not want to fight.

Very cool! I didn't think this hard, but I did wonder why they'd bothered to put that little scene between Vtani and Nala in the movie. And Vtani's one of my favorite characters. She's cool, pretty and funny. And she's smart, too, and nice--she was the first one to refuse to fight which is pretty awesome. It was mostly because of her that the other Outlanders refused as well.
I think it's a good idea that Nala and Zira were friends.

Baby Vtani is so cute.  :)

Love this! Vitani was always my favorite in this movie and this gives her a sort of mysterious backstory. I also had to go check out this scene after I saw this. Nala's reaction to Vitani totally fits with this! Love it.
