Kesho is a cheetah present in the Story "Fight for the Throne."
- "Heheh, yes I see him, Ed. That horrid yellow is blinding me! Wonder what he wants?"
- —Fisi to Ed about Kesho
Presumably, Kesho has the typical golden fur and black spots of a cheetah.
Kesho is a cocky, arrogant Cheetah, confident about his running skills. However, in a fight he is a wimp, worried sick after losing to Simba, submitting easily when surrounded by hyenas, and admitting he cheated during the fight with Simba when confronted by the much larger Kia.
Sometime before the story, Kesho met Fisi while he was on his death bed, and the hyena saved him from starvation.
Fight for the Throne
In return for being saved, Kesho is half forced, half eager to challenge Simba and take the title as King as he enjoys the though of having power and flirting with all the lionesses despite not being a lion himself.
He and Simba battle in The Valley of the Thousand Eye, where the cheetah cheats and uses thorns to weaken and defeat Simba. He takes Simba's crown, however has no power. Unlike Scar who controls the hyenas, the hyenas control him.
