Pure Evil Wiki

Thank you. One does what one can.
~ Budzo, after being called a monster by one of the captive weavers.

Budzo is the main antagonist of the 2012 South African computer-animated film Zambezia (also known as Adventures in Zambezia).

He was voiced by Jim Cummings, who also voiced Dr. Robotnik in Sonic SatAM, Steele in Balto, Rasputin's singing voice in Anastasia, Jacques in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Scar in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, Fusilli in Courage the Cowardly Dog and Hadrian in Minecraft: Story Mode.


A large, fat rock monitor, Budzo plans to get into the sacred bird city of Zambezia and eat all of the eggs inside. He made an earlier attack once, killing Kai's mother, but lost one of his claws. Seeking revenge, he kidnaps numerous weavers to craft him a bridge to cross Victoria Falls and takeover Zambezia.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Responsible for killing Kai's mother and Tendai's wife.
  • Kidnaps multiple weaver birds and forces them to build a bridge, threatening to eat them should they ever stop or revolt.
  • Plans on eating every egg in Zambezia just because he can, regardless of hunger. It is the animal equivalent of killing multiple unborn babies.
  • Betraying his maribou henchmen and unleashing a massive army of lizards to take their place, remarking that they were just as naive as the Zambezians.
