The Lion Tribe is one of the tribes in Chima. They guard over the sacred pool of Chi, since they are fair and just. The tribe is allied primarily with the Eagle Tribe and the Gorilla Tribe to stop the Crocodile Tribe and their allies from stealing all the Chi in Chima. However, after the end of the first conflict, its members sent their prince, Laval, to stop the Outlands tribes and rescue the Legend Beasts. Some members of the Lion Tribe have the ability to make a very loud roar and call the other tribes to their aid, though it could be that only the royal family can do this, since only Lagravis, the Lion Legend Beast and Laval have been seen to use this ability.


The Lion tribe resides in a massive castle near the bottom of Mount Cavora. This castle is essentially the capital of Chima, as it is the location of both the monthly Speedor Races and the Sacred Pool of Chi.

Game Characters


  • The Lion Tribe were the last of the tribes introduced at the beginning of the Legend of Chima series to have female members of their tribe introduced. The reason for this was that the female lions would need to have their own head mold due to the fact that female lions do not have manes like male lions do.
  • In the Concept art, the lions are on many occasions shown with large hair, instead of their current animal head.
