Ma Tembo is seen at her father's funeral with the rest of her herd. She watches the other elephants lay their tributes, and smiles when a baby elephant lays their flowers down upon the corpse of her late father.
Later, she announces that Simba will be saying a few words about her father. She listens to Simba's mistake in speaking elephantese, and, although at first appears surprised and then furious, she simply laughs. She admits that her father did indeed have 'poop' on him, and then thanks Simba, whilst recalling amusing times with her father.
Ma Tembo is seen conducting the The Elephants' Concert. She is honored to have two members of the royal family attend, and she shows her respect by bowing to them. Shortly after the concert closes, Simba, along with Timon and Pumbaa and the Lion Guard, show up to pay their respects. Simba suggests that his family joins him in singing a special song from his past and Ma Tembo and the elephants happily agree.
