Kiburi's float is formed after a failed attempt to take down King Simba. They are banished to the Outlands, where Ushari introduces them to Scar, who welcomes them. They hear about his plan, and seem interested in joining his cause.
They leave for the Pride Lands with their new member in tow, but are turned away by the Lion Guard, despite Hodari's friendship with the float.
After returning to the Outlands, they are joined once again by Hodari, who remains loyal to them. Kiburi uses Hodari's knowledge of Makuu's fighting techniques and, upon learning that Makuu is injured, they return to the Pride Lands, this time concealing themselves from the Lion Guard.
When the coast is clear, they attack Makuu's float. Although they initially have the upper hand in combat, the Lion Guard arrive to help Makuu's float. When Kiburi is defeated by Makuu with help from Hodari, Kion uses his Roar of the Elders to send them back home again.
Kiburi is the leader of the float. Arrogant and overconfident, Kiburi was banished from both his previous float and the Pride Lands after a plan to take down King Simba backfired on him. He has teamed up with several other Outlanders in an attempt to claim the Pride Lands for his group.
