Role in the series
Tamaa used his mimicry ability to imitate predators so he could scare some animals, and thus get their food when they fled. After discovering that he was behind the fleeing animals, the Lion Guard convince him to stop what he is doing.
Unfortunately, Janja overheard the conversation, so he and his minions capture Tamaa to use him so they can scare animals and capture them for food. However, Tamaa mimics Janja's voice to escape his imprisonment and later mimics the Lion Guard to trick Janja into retreating just as the real Lion Guard arrives.
After the dilemma is resolved, the Lion Guard commends Tamaa for his bravery in saving the animals. Tamaa, in turn, promises to never use his talent again unless for good intentions.
