Scar was known to be very resentful of Mufasa and Simba because Simba’s birth ruined any chance of him becoming king, suggesting why he envies both Mufasa and Simba. His resentment and anger towards Mufasa were strong enough that, after he usurped Mufasa’s place on the throne by murdering him, he outlawed Mufasa’s name being uttered, especially not in a favorable light and for anyone who defied the law, he’d do a physical assault to them. He seemed to possess somewhat of an inferiority complex, which presumably also acted as another reason for his resentment for Mufasa, as evidenced by his sad resignation to the fact that he was passed over in the gene pool regarding brute strength.
