The Lion Guard
The Kupatana Celebration
Goigoi is first seen in the Outlands sleeping, before being awoken by Reirei, who informs him of their son Dogo tricking The Lion Guard into letting him into the Pride Lands (after The Lion Guard saved him from Janja and the hyenas), Goigoi then gets up and goes to get his and Reirei's other sons to sneak into The Pride Lands after Dogo.
Goigoi along with his wife and sons are able to enter The Pride Lands and meet up with Dogo. Later, Goigoi and his family take over a aardvark burrow and are confronted by The Lion Guard, but Reirei is able to convince the Guard's leader Kion to let them stay as Dogo can't stay on his own and be away from his family.
After the Guard leave, Goigoi and Reirei fantasize about the animals they can snatch during the celebration of Kupatana. During the song "Jackal Style", Goigoi and his family steal from many of the Pride Lands' animals and are once again confronted by the Lion Guard, but Reirei claims that the Pride Lands' customs are different from theirs, before asking if the family can take part in Kupatana to which a reluctant Kion agrees but only if the jackals treat other animals with respect.
However, during the celebrations, Goigoi and his family start to attack the other animals. Goigoi faces against the Guard's fastest member Fuli, before he and his family are cornered by The Lion Guard and the other Pride Land animals. Kion orders the jackals to return to the Outlands, but Reirei tries to convince Kion to give the jackals another chance. Kion's father and King of the Pride Lands Simba steps forward and orders the jackals to do what Kion said and roars, sending Goigoi and his family fleeing back to the Outlands.
The Call of the Drongo
Too Many Termites
Goigoi and Reirei see a group of aardwolves in one of the Outlands' caves and decide to eat them. The two approach the group and learn that The Lion Guard had driven the aardwolves out of the Pride Lands (after they mistook them for hyenas). Goigoi and Reirei tell the aardwolves that they are nothing like the Lion Guard and sing "We'll Make You a Meal", earning the aardwolves trust.
Eventually, Goigoi and Reirei trap the aardwolves in the cave and prepare to devour them, but are prevented from doing so when the Lion Guard arrive (after discovering their mistake) and save the aardwolves and make Goigoi and Reirei leave.
Though the jackals are known for being schemers, Goigoi is not the brightest, being only able to think with his stomach, and has a tendency to lounge about and sleep. Even so, he takes a devious and manipulative delight in his mate's scheming, and he also has a habit of agreeing with everything Reirei says.
- The name "Goigoi" means "slow" in Swahili.
- Goigoi is similar to the fellow Lion King villain, Nuka.
- Both are the secondary antagonists.
- Both are dimwitted and unintelligent.
- Both are related to the main antagonist (Goigoi is Reirei's husband whilst Nuka is Zira's son).
- However, whilst Nuka had a strained relationship with Zira (until his dying moments), Goigoi and Reirei care about one another and their children.
- It is possible that Goigoi suffers from narcolepsy, as he is seen falling asleep at random times, resulting in Reirei in having to wake him up.
