The Gorilla soldier from Planet of the Apes represents the ultimate emobyment of brutish strength and naked agression. The gorilla sitting perched on his horse roams the vast wilderness of the world in search of treason to punish and cultures to conquer. The Gorillas are not as independent in thought as the chimps or orgautauns. Powerful charismatic gorilla leaders are always to be found and they are the heart of Gorilla power among the apes. With General Ursus, the gorillas gain political power and purpose in the second Planet of the Apes movie. Under his leadership they search for a speaking human, invade a mutant complex and eradicate the last bastions of human history. After the destruction of the world in the second film, three chimpanzees escape to Earth's past where humans rule the world. By the fourth film Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, a chimp leader Cesar arose to lead apedom to freedom and prosperity. Among his strongest followers is gorilla Aldo who was to assert leadership of Gorilla armies to be created. Aldo commits the first murder of a fellow ape in his desire for power. By the TV series another strong Gorilla leader Urko arose to take command of gorilla forces in the future.
