Information

Save Nala

Gorilla: That's Simba! The Lion King's son! Take him, Kumpel!
Kumpel: Mufasa will agree on anything to get him back!
—Kumpel captures Simba


In hopes of using Mufasa's son against him, Kumpel and his/her fellow gorillas pursue Simba, but the cub gets away. Later, when Simba tries to find Nala after Sarabi comforts him, he finds his friend being held ransom by the same gorillas in a dark cave. Nala tells the apes that Mufasa will save her, and they tell her that's precisely what they want to happen, but Simba "roars," causing a few boulders to fall upon the heads of the gorillas. In fear, Kumpel and his/her friends flee from Simba.

Trivia

  • Kumpel may not be the ape's actual name, for in German, the comic's original language, "Kumpel" means friend.[1]
