no1scarfan said:
Because Ahaidi, Scar's father, also had a black mane. Scar inherited it. Mufasa has a red mane because he probably inherited it from his grandfather, Mohatu. Also, Disney thought giving Scar a black mane made him look more evil than a lighter one, although this is understandable, Disney made a mistake there, as in a lion pride, a dark mane is healthier than a paler one. Therefor Scar would have been king, but who cares XD

Because Scar's and Mufasa's father,Ahadi,had a black mane but a golden fur,and Scar's and Mufasa's mother,Uru,had a dark fur,just like Scars.She had ,,Outlanders nose"too.That's what makes Scar's colors to be like that:Ahadi's black mane and Uru's dark,outlanderish appearance and colors.

When they were first writing the movie, Scar was never going to related to Mufasa. He was going to be a rouge lion. They changed this, obviously, but kept the drawings. So instead they said that Mufasa's and Scar's father had black mane (in the story books). Genetically then it would be possible to have one son with black mane and the other with red.

I read somewhere that Scar was originally not going to be related to Mufasa, but they got the idea of them being brothers a while into preproduction, to make the storyline more intense. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I heard that from, so I can't confirm if it's from a reliable source. But if it is, that might be why they look so different; their character designs may have been finalized before it was decided that they'd be brothers.

Like I said, I don't know if this information is true, but if it is then that's my theory for now.

Of course, a biological reason could simply be because of how their parents looked, for all we know. Maybe Mufasa mostly took after one parent while Scar mostly took after the other. For example, their dad may have had a brown/red mane and their mother might have been an orange lioness whose father had a black mane. That'd be biologically possible.

Also, is it ever mentioned that they both had the same parents? I don't recall. Maybe they were only half brothers, for all we know.

that's an interesting idea! that could explain why Mufasa is king even though Scar has a black mane O_O

Scar's Black Mane represents the darkness in Scar's soul whereas the color Red represents the goodness or light that Mufasa and Simba have shown.

Yeah I too think it was firstly because Scar had to look obviously evil but in practical explanation I always took it obvious as well that his and Mufasa's father or someone else in the blood line had a dark mane too.

Mane color is just like eye colour or any other looks feature that is inherited generation to generation, more or less randomly.

beacause due to science and nature the elder lions are supposed to have the black mane and the youngest red,brown,or orange,but due to the cartoon they wanted to make scar(taka)look more evil!so they agreed to make his mane dark and another meaning the name taka means dirt so they made him dark!
and here is a couple of vidieos for scars story and the meaning!

Though you don't usually see a lion with a black mane, they do vary in shades between prides. This happens a lot in the REAL animal kingdom, usually a trait passed down through the males, same way some Siberian Tigers turn out white while others in the same litter come out orange.

Mufasa and Scar's whose real name was actually Taka both were sons of Ahadi and Uru. Ahadi was a large lion with more of the colorings as Mufasa. The lioness Uru however was more colored like Scar. So that is why they look so different but are still brothers.

I think when Disney made the characters for the "Lion King" I guess they also planned out their personalities and so they gave Scar a black mane because in the Lion King movies he has a dark soul. Mufasa was a very kind and respectful lion and so his red like mane means he is a all of those great features.

Well, I think that Scar has a black mane, so that it would make sense in the later movies because Nuka also has a black mane. This feature shows that they are related.

Yeah, Scar and Mufasa's father had a black mane and a golden body and their mother, Uru had a red tail tip and dark fur. So Scar has his father's mane and mother's pelt. Mufasa has father's pelt and mothers hair color. But, I guess being the darker colored brother made Scar look more evil too.

Scar's color seems to make him look evil. Scar's colors were a black mane, a brownish, reddish and orangish fur plus green eyes. But then, Kovu had his colors as a dark brown mane, and a brown fur and green eyes. Then Scar's outland nose. But even though they are different, they still look the same. I guess, to show that Scar is on the bad side.

Mufasa and scars father, Ahadi, had a long, black mane. Mufasa and scars mother uru, was like scars coulor but had more of the facial features as mufasa. Ahadi had the same facial features as scar. Why mufasa and scars noses and manes are different, was most likely because the two cubs had more genes in them from one of their parents.

All lion cubs get their looks from their parents. Mufasa and Scar's parents were Ahadi and Uru. Scar got his colour from Uru, and black men from Ahadi. Mufasa got his colour from Ahadi, and to make him good looking, his creators made his mane red, or, Uru's mane(if she was a male) must be red, and Simba got his red manes from Mufasa.
