Tonto is a Comanche warrior and supporting protagonist of the Lone Ranger franchise, first appearing in the 1933 radio series; he also appeared in the 2013 Disney film of the same name. As a child, Tonto saved Butch Cavendish from certain death, and showed him a mountain filled with silver ore in exchange for a pocket watch. As thanks, Butch slaughtered Tonto's tribe to keep the location of the mountain a secret and to build a mine there. Because of Butch's cannibalistic tendencies, Tonto believed him to be a "wendigo" and swore to kill him to avenge his tribe. In adulthood, Tonto met John Reid when he and Butch were being transported to prison onboard a train, from which both men escaped. After John was murdered by Butch, Tonto helped revive him and joined him in seeking vengeance on Butch, with John taking the identity of the Lone Ranger.
Tonto has been confirmed to appear in the second season of Disney Heroes vs. Villains along with the Lone Ranger.
