Kely is a character in the third season of The Lion Guard.
Despite himself as a lemur and his interests in bamboo, Kely usually didn't know when to compromise ever since he and his lemur troop clashed with a panda named Heng Heng. During the dispute between him and Heng Heng, the Lion Guard takes him, his troop, and Heng Heng to Rani to alternate shifts between the two of them.
Role in the series
Aside from his cameo appearances in "The River of Patience" and "Little Old Ginterbong", Kely plays an important role in the episode "The Lake of Reflection" where he and his lemurs argue with Heng Heng and his lemurs about bamboo. As the Lion Guard looks at their dispute, Kely introduces himself to the Guard, telling the group about what Heng Heng is doing with the lemurs' bamboo. The dispute between her and Kely is interrupted as the Lion Guard (this time only with Bunga, Fuli, Ono, Beshte, and Anga) takes her to Queen Rani to solve the problem. Just as the Guard, Kely, his lemurs, and Heng Heng approach Rani, she gives the panda and the lemurs about shifting routines in the bamboo forest as a compromise to which the lemurs and pandas share the bamboo first while Heng Heng does her bamboo routine next. Heng Heng takes the lemurs to the bamboo forest with the problem solved.
In "Triumph of the Roar", Kely is one of the victims under attack by Makucha's Army. Fortunately, Kion, who mastered the power of the roar, manages to save him alongside the other animals from a gruesome fate.
- He is the only named lemur to officially appear in the Lion King franchise.
- A lemur previously appeared in a Lion King-inspired comic titled "A Kinglike Hair-Do" where a lemur appears briefly in the book; despite being set in the Pride Lands, lemurs are only found in Madagascar in real life.
