Scar, the younger brother of King Mufasa, is the malicious villain in The Lion King (1994). He is inspired by Shakespeare villain Claudius from Hamlet. Claudius killed his brother King Hamlet in order to gain the throne. Similarly, Scar ultimately succeeds in killing his brother.

Also, the scar on his face, which extends from above his left eye to his cheek, is similar to the scar on Tony "Scarface" Montana (played by Al Pacino) in the 1983 film Scarface.
