Phango is a sadistic, ruthless leopard and the main antagonist of the South African animated film, Khumba. He is voiced by Liam Neeson who also played Bad Cop from Lego Movie, Raccoon from Nut Job, and Ra's Al Ghul from Batman Begins. Phango is a menacing leopard who terrorizes the animals of the African plains. He delights in spreading fear among the animals, but his sole purpose is to hunt down Khumba for his dinner. Because he was born blind with one eye, Phango was the runt of the litter and soon abandoned by his clan. His weak eyesight granted him a keen sense of smell like no other leopard, which helped him to become a great hunter. He then killed his clan out of revenge, but that didn't satisfy the leopard. He began spreading fear and terrorizing the animals in the Great Karoo. According to the lore of his species, Phango believes that by eating Khumba, the half-striped zebra, he will regain his strength and eyesight that would make him the most powerful leopard that ever lived. When he battled with Khumba, he managed to scratch him on his flank, but when Khumba kicked Phango, the leopard stumbled, landing on a loose rock, and fell to his death, 2 rocks falling on him.
