Vuruga Vuruga compliments Kiara

After a mishap with the floodwaters, the young princess appears drenched in mud and water and greets Vuruga Vuruga with a bow. Vuruga Vuruga bows respectfully to Kiara and appears pleased by her presence. She praises Kiara's appearance, mentioning that royals tend to be very stuffy at these events and that Kiara must clearly understand what the event is all about, adding that she is very impressed.

Smiling towards Kiara's friends

Hearing the unexpected praise over her appearance, Kiara gives credit to her friends, Tiifu and Zuri, who always insist that she looks her best for important events such as these. Vuruga Vuruga smiles kindly towards them, making Tiifu and Zuri feel pleased that they could help their friend after all. Kiara then steps forward and announces the start of the Wallow, and Vuruga Vuruga stands at Kiara's side, watching as her herd participates in the important event.

The Savannah Summit

Angry at Makuu's inclusion

Simba invites Vuruga Vuruga to the Savannah Summit. When she learns that Makuu has been invited, she voices her irritations to Twiga on their way over to Mizimu Grove, believing that Makuu should not be present after all of the negative things he has done since becoming leader of his float. On the way over, she responds negatively to Big Baboon when he lands on her by mistake, but she does exhibit warmth towards Twiga.

"Delicious branches!"

She and Twiga then discuss Makuu in private a little later on in a clearing. Mtoto overhears part of their conversation, and the Lion Guard approach them, believing them to be in danger. When they can't find any trace of Makuu, Kion asks Mtoto exactly what he heard, and he confesses that he actually heard Twiga speak about Makuu. The giraffe turns to Vuruga Vuruga in disbelief, asking if she was speaking about Makuu. The pair deny ever mentioning him, and Vuruga Vuruga claims to be eating branches, just like Twiga, even taking the branches away from her to finish eating. Ono questions her about this, but she becomes defensive, and Twiga finally gets the Guard to leave.

A worried Vuruga Vuruga

At sunset, Kion gathers everyone to tell them of some bad news. He explains that Makuu fell into a pit, which pleases Vuruga Vuruga and Twiga. However, he continues to tell the group that, despite trying his best, Makuu passed away trying to escape it. She and Twiga confess to the act, claiming that they only wanted to make him smell bad. But to their surprise, Makuu appears, angry at their lack of trust. Vuruga Vuruga and Twiga are worried that he is mad, but instead, Makuu applauds their trick, stating that it was plan worthy of a crocodile.

Butting heads!

With Vuruga Vuruga seeing Makuu in a new light, she invites his float to sleep near her herd's mud wallow as opposed to next to Bupu's Herd. She and Bupu butt heads over where Makuu should stay, prompting Simba to step in and break up the fight.
