The Top Ten

1 Gorilla Gorilla Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa.

The apes of Africa's wild are so indeed heroic!

Wow

Unlike Lion King's other characters who know these apes, Kion and his no-good friends Fuli, Bunga, Ono and Besthe were ignorant Africa's most intelligent and strongest living species the other creatures had ever seen.

Gorillas are east, west and central Africa's most endangered and highly intelligent apes on the planet. Like all of Africa's animals the apes are being poached and slaughtered towards extinction There are 3 types of gorillas:

Eastern or grauer's lowland gorilla

Western lowland gorilla

and the largest and most endangered is the mountain gorilla.


Popular culture and cartoons with gorillas in them:

Gorillaz(A virtual and animated band created in 1998 and is named after the animal)

Rapper gorilla zoe gets his from the ape

Disney's Donald duck cartoon short featured a gorilla named"Ajax" in Donald and the gorilla"

Disney's Tarzan(1999) is a film about a man raised by western gorillas in the central African rainforests. The Gorillas are named"Terk, Kala, Kerchak, Flynt and Mungo. They are voiced by Rose O' Donnell, Lance Henrickson, Glenn Glose and more

2 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

Dolphins in many shows/movies have been portrayed as evil creatures that kill for fun. - DinoLover4242

3 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

The big bad wolf! point proven

4 Polar Bear Polar Bear The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.
5 Leopard Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various ...read more.
6 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.
7 Hawk Hawk Hawks are a group of medium-sized diurnal birds of prey of the family Accipitridae which are widely distributed and varying greatly in size.

Perhaps I am this animal at times... - PositronWildhawk

8 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.

Definitely a villain

Hero, please! We've already have too much cat villains, time for some cat heroes - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

9 Owl Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about two hundred species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.
10 Bee Bee

The Contenders

11 Mosquito Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

DEFINITELY villain! Who wants a mosquito for a hero? Lol - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Mosquito, really? A hero?

12 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Except Simba and his pride are bad guys.

Lions are Africa's second heroic mammal after the gorilla. Simba(Swahili name for"Lion") a masai or east African lion(Panthera Leo Nubica) is Disney's popular franchise The Lion King is the main heroic of the animated films and it's 2019 upcoming remake. He is voiced by Matthew Brodrick(Famous), Cam Clarke(Famous), Donald Glover(Famous) and Rob Lowe(Infamous). Kion is Simba's son but unlike him and his mom Nala and his older sister Kiara that are heroic 100% this one is not so heroic 10% and he's the stubborn and not so very great leader of of the lion guard due to his irritation and offensive behavior of wrath and arrogance and unlikable/unreal lion cub behavior.

13 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.
14 Orangutan Orangutan

All of them on this list are heroes except for mosquitoes and mice in my opinion.

15 Fox Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species ...read more.
16 Hyena Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

I rather see a hyena as a hero than a villain. Especially knowing how much of a bad thing The Lion King did for making the whole species as villains, enough for Disney to get sued by a hyena biologist.

17 Jackals Jackals The jackal is a small omnivorous mammal of the genus Canis, which also includes the wolf and dog. While the word "jackal" has historically been used for many small canids, in modern use it most commonly refers to three species: the closely related black-backed jackal and side-striped jackal of sub-Saharan ...read more.
18 Coyote
19 Jaguarundi
20 Monarch Butterflies
21 Jaguar Jaguar The jaguar is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.
22 Snow Leopard Snow Leopard The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. The name "Snow Leopard" is due to its white fur, and the black spots dotted over it.
23 Peregrine Falcon Peregrine Falcon The peregrine falcon, also known as the peregrine, and historically as the duck hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae.
24 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

This would definitely be a villain in series/movies due to its aggression. - DinoLover4242

25 Puma Puma The cougar, also commonly known as the mountain lion, puma, panther, or catamount, is a large felid of the subfamily Felinae native to the Americas.

They're cool and beautiful

26 Osprey

Cool bird

27 Pilot Whale
28 Mouse Mouse A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.

Sorry, villain. Too much mouse heroes.

It is harmless so it is a hero and not a villain. - DinoLover4242

29 Alaskan Malamute Alaskan Malamute The Alaskan Malamute is a large breed of domestic dog originally bred for hauling heavy freight because of their strength and endurance, and later a sled dog.

Hero, coolest dog breeds

30 Cockroach Cockroach

Yuck! Yep, definitely a villain.

31 Humpback Whale Humpback Whale The humpback whale is a species of baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12–16 m and weigh about 36,000 kg.

Hero. Too beautiful and calm to be a villain. Besides, they've saved people before.

32 Elephant Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.
