Sabor is the secondary adversary of Tarzan. She was introduced as the main adversary but was killed off for the true main villain, Clayton, to take over during the second half of the movie. She is a leopardess and she'll eat any creature she finds. In fact, it is she who kills Tarzan's parents and Kala and Kerchak's child. She tries to kill the baby Tarzan himself, but Kala saves him.

When Tarzan is grown up, he defends the gorillas by fighting Sabor with a spear. Eventually, he kills her and hollers his famous yell while holding her up.

Sabor later appeared in its 2005 midquel.
