A collection of quotes from the former king of Wakanda, T'Chaka.


Captain America: Civil War

Spoken by T'Chaka

"Our people's blood is spilled on foreign soil. Not only because of the actions of criminals, but by the indifference of those pledged to stop them. Victory at the expense of the innocent, is no victory at all."
"When stolen Wakandan Vibranium was used to make a terrible weapon, we in Wakanda were forced to question our legacy. Those men and women killed in Nigeria, were part of a goodwill mission from a country too long in the shadows. We will not, however, let misfortune drive us back. We will fight to improve the world we wish to join. I am grateful to the Avengers for supporting this initiative. Wakanda is proud to extend its hand in peace."


"Two people in a room can get more done than a hundred."
"Unless you need to move a piano."
"Son. Miss Romanoff."
"King T'Chaka. Please, allow me to apologize for what happened in Nigeria."
"Thank you. Thank you for agreeing to all this. I'm sad to hear that Captain Rogers will not be joining us today."
T'Challa, T'Chaka and Black Widow[src]
"For a man who disapproves of diplomacy, you're getting quite good at it."
"I'm happy, Father."
"Thank you."
"Thank you."
T'Chaka and T'Challa[src]

"Look me in the eyes and tell me why you betrayed Wakanda."
T'Chaka to N'Jobu[src]

"Zange ulungiselele ukuba nguKumkani ubomi bakho bonke? Awuzange uqeqeshe kwaye wafunda, ubusecaleni kwam?"[4]
"That is not what I am talking about. I am not ready to be without you."
"A man who has not his children for his own death has failed as a father. Have I ever failed you?"
"Never. Tell me how to best protect Wakanda."
"You're going to struggle."
"I want to be a great king, Baba."
"You're a good man with a good heart. And it's hard for a good man to be King."
