Wildebeests are members of the antelope family. They have striped brown fur and two curved horns atop their heads. They also have a ridge of hair running along their back and chest.
Wildebeests live in large herds consisting of males, females and their young. They are common prey for predators such as lions and hyenas.
A wildebeest is among the terrified Pride Landers shown in the song Tonight We Strike.
The Lion Guard are out in the middle of a wildebeest stampede, attempting to locate Janja and other members of his clan. Kion manages to push Janja into a wildebeest, which sends the hyena into the air and flat on his face. The hyenas retreat after Janja claims he's "had enough".
After a storm leaves the Pride Lands in a state, Janja plans to use the mud to his advantage, hoping that the Lion Guard will constantly slip before they reach him as he attacks the wildebeests. However, he slips down the mud hill himself instead. Cheezi and Chungu then reveal his plan to eat the wildebeests, before Kion uses his Roar of the Elders to propel them out of the Pride Lands.Beshte's new Hippo Lane at the end of the episode.
