Kuathirika, as a cub, bears a striking resemblance to his grandson Kion. He had gold skin with a white chin, pale yellow legs and belly and, like his grandson, a tuft of red hair on his head and on the tip of his tail.
As an adult, Kuathirika is much larger and his body is very muscular, his mane has grown completely and covers his neck and back, and his ears are barely visible.
Kuathirika, as a cub, was very playful and distracted, and he never noticed where he was going, as when he fell from a tree, and there, he was saved by the Lion Guard of his day.
As an adult, with a mate, a daughter and a son, Kuathirika is more overprotective, brave and careful, and does his best to keep his daughter from getting into trouble like when he was a cub.
