Tarzan is the main protagonist of the Disney movie of the same name. He was raised by gorillas after his biological parents were killed by the leopard, Sabor. His upbringing left him very muscular and agile. By the time he became a young man, he met other humans and fell in love with Jane Porter. His naivete towards them made him easily trusting to Clayton, who sought to trap the gorillas. After Clayton is exposed, Tarzan engages Clayton in battle where the poacher accidentally kills himself by cutting vines Tarzan threw at him, leaving one around his neck, despite Tarzan warning him not to.

Jane decides to stay with Tarzan and becomes his wife.
