Two of the gorillas assisting in moving one of Shen's cannonsAdded by Spottedstar 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.
One of the gorillas cuffing PoAdded by Spottedstar 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 defeat.
One of the gorillas carrying Po up the palace stairsAdded by Spottedstar Even before encountering the Dragon Warrior in real life, the gorillas are noted 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.
Despite having to fight against one of the fiercest of the Furious Five on more than one occasion, the gorillas were noted to "pose a surprising challenge to her skill set."
Role in the series
The Gorilla army, like Shen's wolfs, changed their ways, but not before briefly reprhasing their roles as henchmen in Spongebob and Friends meet Brother Bear. while in the High Council now with Lord Shen's and Boss Wolf's reformnation, the Gorillas roles in the High Council forces does not differ too much from their former life, they still do the heavy work like holding Shen's cannons when needed, construction, Brute force work when needed, and Evacuating the Soothsayer in times of danger or coming Danger on Shen's orders, and alcourse chain up enemy prisoners if possable.
