Kerchak is the leader of an ape group and the mate of Kala. A benevolent and protective leader for his clan, Kerchak grew suspicious of his foster son Tarzan, and kept his distance from him and the human race, although he later admitted his mistake and made peace with Tarzan, making him leader of the clan. Tragically, in the events of Disney Heroes vs. Villains War, Scar and Shere Khan orchestrated Kerchak's death to play Tarzan against Simba, though Kerchak would return from death to aid the Blue Fairy against the forces of evil.
