Rescue of T'Challa
Gorilla City was the biggest inhabited location of Jabari Land. When T'Challa was defeated by Erik Killmonger who threw him down the Warrior Falls, he was found by a Jabari fisherman who took him back to Gorilla City, where M'Baku decided to give shelter to the unconscious T'Challa.
Shuri, Ramonda, Nakia and Everett Ross, who had gone into exile following Killmonger's ascension to the throne, were also found by Jabari warriors and taken to Gorilla City, where they met with M'Baku in his palace. As they offered the last Heart-Shaped Herb to M'Baku, M'Baku revealed that T'Challa was still alive and allowed them to use the herb to heal him. Once T'Challa got better, he decided to take the throne back from Killmonger, aided by Shuri, Nakia, and Ross. Although he refused to assist T'Challa, M'Baku consented to protect Ramonda in Gorilla City.
However, M'Baku eventually agreed with T'Challa who had warned him about Killmonger coming to claim dominion over the Jabari Tribe should he prevail against T'Challa. Therefore, M'Baku left Gorilla City with his army in order to give reinforcements to T'Challa's forces. Once the battle was ended and T'Challa was victorious, Ramonda left Gorilla City and returned to the Golden City.
