Kenge has been described as having an "intimidating, ferocious nature". Much like Makuu before he reformed, he does not take orders from anyone, and will quickly assert himself as the leader. He is very self conscious about his size, and reacts with severe rage at being called little in any way. Although he will work with others to achieve a goal, he will not befriend his team mates. Kenge has a very short temper, and resorts to violence very quickly. He is very confident in his abilities and will happily challenge anyone. Like Kiburi, he is ruthless as he viciously attacked zebras and gazelles and then bit Fuli, Kion, and Beshte even though they confronted him. He is shown to be cunning, namely when he attacks the Pride Landers just to lure the Lion Guard so he can bite them.
Role in the series
Like many other villains in the Lion Guard series, Kenge joins in the rogues' gallery implemented by the unknowing Villain League pawn Janja and Scar as he contacts them from the Villain League HQ within a volcano since The Rise of Scar.
