A collection of quotes of the Jabari Tribe leader, M'Baku.


Black Panther

Spoken by M'Baku

"We have watched and listened from the mountains! We have watched with disgust as your technological advancements have been overseen by a child! Who scoffs at tradition! And now you want to hand the nation over to this prince who could not keep his own father safe. We will not have it. I said, we will not have it!"
"Glory to Hanuman."
"Where is your god now?"
―M'Baku to T'Challa[src]
"No powers! No claws! No special suit! Just a boy not fit to lead!"
―M'Baku to T'Challa[src]
"You cannot talk! One more word, and I will feed you to my children. I'm kidding. We are vegetarians."
―M'Baku to Everett Ross[src]
"Witness the might of the Jabari! First-hand!"

Spoken about M'Baku

"You have fought with honor! Now yield! Your people need you."
T'Challa to M'Baku[src]
"The Herb belongs to us. We may be creating a bigger monster with M'Baku."
"Great Gorilla M'Baku. This is why we are here. To offer this to you. An outsider sits on our throne. Only you can help us stop him."
Nakia to M'Baku[src]


"Yield! Don't make me kill you."
"I would rather die!"
T'Challa and M'Baku[src]
"My son was murdered in ritual combat."
"Were the odds fair?"
"Yes, but..."
"So it was less a murder than a defeat."
"Do not rub our noses in it!"
"Silence! I make the pronouncements here, girl."
Ramonda, M'Baku, Nakia and Shuri[src]
"The Black Panther lives. And when he fights for the fate of Wakanda, I will be right there beside him."
"As will I."
"I'm in too. What? You're gonna need all the help you can get."
"Are you done? Are you done?"
Shuri, Nakia, Everett Ross and M'Baku[src]
"You know, I could use an army as well."
"I bet you could. But no. I will give no Jabari lives towards your cause."
"It is our cause. It is for all of us."
"Oh, us? Us? You are the first king to come here in centuries and now you speak of "us"?"
"I cannot speak for past kings. But an enemy sits on the throne right now. We both know the power of Vibranium. If Killmonger gains control of it, who do you think he will come for next?"
"We will not help you."
T'Challa and M'Baku[src]

Avengers: Infinity War

Spoken about M'Baku

"Send word to the Jabari as well. M'Baku likes a good fight."
T'Challa to Okoye[src]


"Thank you for standing with us."
"Yebo, mfowethu.[1]"
T'Challa and M'Baku[src]
"This will be the end of Wakanda."
"Then it will be the noblest ending in history."
―M'Baku and Okoye[src]
