Phango is the main antagonist of the 2013 computer-animated South African film, Khumba. He is a vicious leopard who wishes to eat Khumba he can become a more powerful hunter.

He was voiced by Liam Neeson, who also played Ra's al Ghul from Batman Begins, Clinch Leatherwood in A Million Ways to Die in the West, Bad Copfrom The Lego Movie and Raccoon from The Nut Job. Phango was born with one blind eye and was abandoned by his clan as the runt of the litter. He was thrown in the magical water pond in the clan's lair. This only made him stronger giving him an extra, almost mystical strong sense of smell. He rose back up and killed his clan in revenge. He is obsessed with being whole. Phango is also superstisious and believes by myth a half-striped zebra would make him the most powerful hunter who ever lived and would make him "complete". When he grew up, he tries to kill Khumba but is eventually defeated when Kkumba pushes the loose rock that Phango is standing on, causing the evil leopard to plummet to his death into the gorge below, with two boulders crushing him.
