The Wildebeest Stampede are minor characters from the 1994, Disney movie, The Lion King. They are a herd of wildebeest, who stampede when they get scared. They are anti-heroes in the movie, but are not villains, as they were only running to protect themselves from the hyenas when they nearly run over Simba and were present at his celebration when he was born. Also, when they kill Mufasa, it is completely done unintentionally, as it is really Scar who pushed him off the cliff, right where they were stampeding. Therefore, the wildebeests are not villains, but are really neutral characters.
