Gorillas

Shen's gorilla army are the tertiary antagonists in Kung Fu Panda 2. As their name suggests, they are a group of gorillas that serve as the brute strength in Shen's army.

Biography

In Kung Fu Panda 2

The Gorillas are the muscle in Lord Shen's army. If his evil schemes require any heavy lifting, they'll be the ones doing it. Shen's personal guard is made up entirely of these powerful (and powerfully large) brutes, who are honor bound to their master. Two of the gorillas assisting in moving one of Shen's cannons.

In the film, the gorillas performed various duties such as transporting Shen's cannon and guarding Shen and the </span>Soothsayer. During the Battle of the Fireworks Factory, it was a gorilla that battled Tigress one-on-one and prevented her from reaching  Po in time to save him from being shot by Shen's largest cannon.

Personality

As large creatures of enormous strength and size, the gorillas are naturally brutal and aggressive. However, they are just as loyal to Shen as his wolf soldiers.[2]

Fighting style

The Gorillas are familiar with kung fu and skilled with weaponry, but they rarely need either. So ferocious and intimidating, they strike such fear in opponents that a battle is often over before it begins. Impossibly strong and amazingly agile, the Gorillas are equally dexterous with both hands and feet and are extremely tough to take down.

Relationships

Lord Shen

The gorillas served as Shen's personal guard, and were extremely loyal. However, Shen considered them to be as expendable as his wolves.</span>[2]

As members of Shen's personal guard, the gorillas were higher in rank than the wolves, and sometimes led the wolves themselves when Boss Wolf wasn't around.

[Po]]

Even before encountering the Dragon Warrior in real life, the gorillas are noted to have always been legendary, fearsome fighters—so much so that Po had incorporated their likeness into his dream in the beginning sequences of Kung Fu Panda.

The Furious Five

As members of Shen's army, the gorillas were naturally the enemies of the Furious Five and fought them. The gorillas were noted to "pose a surprising challenge" particularly to Tigress, as during the Battle of the Fireworks Factory, a gorilla fought her one-on-one and put up a good fight.

Clothing

As the gorillas have little need for armor, their only clothing are armored pants and studded leather wristbands.
