The Lion Guard

Now, whose turn is it to climb down and pick up all the throwing fruit?
—The baboon leader to his troop

The baboon leader is an adult male baboon. He is the leader of the baboons in Nyani Grove.


The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

The baboon leader and his followers chase Fuli after she tells them that they look funny when they scratch their heads. In the midst of the chase, Beshte throws himself in front of them, halting their pursuit. Fuli then apologizes to the baboons, and the baboon leader accepts her apology before fainting alongside the rest of his troop.

Ono tries to convince the baboons to climb down the tree

During a rainstorm, the baboon leader and his troop take shelter in a tree on the edge of a cliff. The Lion Guard begs the baboons to come down, but the baboon leader refuses to cooperate until the rains stop. Eventually, Kion grows so desperate that he sends Bunga up the tree to release his flatulence and force the baboons down. The plan works, and the baboons jump down the tree just before it collapses.


After rescuing a baby baboon, Fuli comes to Nyani Grove and speaks to the baboon leader, who informs Fuli that the baby baboon does not belong to their group. Rather, he belongs to the baboons of Mapango Cliffs, who live at the very top of a steep ridge. Though loathe to travel so far, Fuli begrudgingly sets out to return the baby baboon home. On her way out of the grove, she is told by the baboon leader to bring a message to their cliff neighbors, after which the baboons begin to pelt her with fruit.

Physical appearance

The baboon leader is quite a bit larger than his fellow baboons, with long limbs and an unusually bushy mane. His main pelt is dark brown, though his underbelly is more muted in color. The skin on his ears, face, feet, and hands is pink, and he has a patch of stubble on his chin. His eyes are black, and his mane is grayish-brown.

Personality and traits

The baboon leader is stubborn and lacking in intelligence. Like other baboons, he enjoys throwing fruit at other animals.
