Allying with Zira
After the death of Zira's mate, Scar, the lioness loses most of her army. Left with only a small squadron of lions, Zira seeks aid from both Shere Khan and his underling, Kaa. Khan joins her alliance but questions Zira's leadership capacity. The emotionally fractured mother seems a tad too unstable for his tastes. Matters get only worse when Mirage arrives in the Pridelands; as she and Zira begin scheming the fall of Mumm-Ra, Scar's killer, Shere Khan grows suspicious of their true motives.
Shere Khan encounters Kaynar while patrolling the Pridelands. He charges the warrior, but Kaynar punches him in the face. Shere Khan tries to attack again, but Kaynar's halberd keeps him at bay. Khan gets in butone lucky clawing, yet the attack only serves to delight the psychotic Kaynar. As Kaynar attacks again, Mirage enters the conflict and frightens Kaynar away. Khan grows enraged, cheated of a kill.
A Crushing Defeat
Beast Man, one of Mirage's assassination targets, tracks the villain to the Pridelands. The warrior has brought a crew of Shadow Beasts with him. Shere Khan severely claws and kills one of the Beasts. The tiger charges Beast Man, leaping across a gorge in order to kill his opponent. But Beast Man catches Khan mid-air. The tiger loses momentum, latching on to the opposite cliff. Just as Khan is about to get up, Zira slashes his paws. Khan falls down the gorge; just as he gets up, a falling boulder crushes and almost kills him.
However, Khan somehow survives. Embittered from his defeat, he discloses the weaknesses in Zira and Mirage's position to Mumm-Ra. However, this plan proves less than effective, as Mumm-Ra's forces are nearly wiped out in the Battle of the Pridelands.
Disney Villains War
Hunter or Hunted?
Clayton arrives in the jungle in hopes of killing Shere Khan. Before the hunter can shoot Khan, the tiger pounces and knocks him down. He then uses his claws to tear Clayton's primitive rifle to pieces. When Clayton draws hi machete, Khan leads him into a patch of vines, eventually using his claws to drop yet more onto the hunter. Shere Khan watches as Clayton accidentally commits suicide by cutting too many of the vines and hanging himself.
A Sister's Revenge
Shere Khan then encounters Lady Waltham, Clayton's sister. Though initially unimpressed by the female hunter, Shere Khan grows bloodthirsty after she shoots him with a blowdart. He pounces, and Waltham stumbles. The cat then pursues her to a cliffface. Though Waltham makes it to the other side of a gorge, Shere Khan has to leap across. He manages to hang on to the other side, but the rocks give way. By the end of the battle, he is trapped within the gorge, where he presumably starves.
