Proximus Caesar Is Speculated To Be Decendent Of Koba In “Kingdom Of The Planet Of Apes”

Proximus Caesar and Koba may share a relation!

“Kingdom Of The Planet Of Apes,” the fourth installment in the franchise, is just around the corner, and before its release, fans are curious to find out every minor detail of the plot.

The movie will be released on May 10, 2024, and will continue the story 300 years after the last one.

One of the most popular queries is whether Proximus Caesar and Koba are related.

Key Takeaways

  • A new movie, Kingdom Of The Planet Of Apes, is being added to the Planets of Apes franchise and will be released on May 10, 2024.
  • This installment’s villain is Proximus Caesar, who many fans have claimed to be a direct descendant of Koba.
  • Although they have similar features, we cannot be 100% sure until it is officially revealed.

Proximus Caesar, the antagonist of “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes,” is an ape king who has deterred Caesar (CE) from his righteous path and enslaves other clans and kills humans.

Being the descendant of evolved apes, he has a high level of intelligence and can speak fluently.

Meanwhile, Koba was a former ally, later turned antagonist, who was killed by Ceasar (CE) in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (2014).

Since both the ape shares identical features, fans are wondering if they are related.

To be accurate, their relationship has yet to be verified officially, but the apes do share many similarities.

Both are shown to be aggressive and violent, which is ironic since the breed is supposed to be peaceful.

Proximus Caesar’s ear has a little notch missing, a body defect similar to Koba.

Likewise, Proximus has a small white marking on his right eyebrow ridge, which can either be a birthmark or a scar.

Interestingly, it resembles Koba’s scar, which starts from his right eyebrow and moves to his cheek.

Notably, the two have similar head shapes and hairstyles, which is quite obvious as they are both large, muscular male bonobos.

Another similar characteristic is their hatred for humans. Koba was known for hating humans and being ruthless, and Proximus was also seen sending his soldiers to hunt humans down in the trailer.

Due to these points, it can even be argued that Proximus may be a descendant of Koba.

Regarding this one Reddit user wrote,

“It would be interesting if Proximus Caesar turned out for plot reasons to be descended from Koba, but Proximus, IMO, looks more like a chimp.”

Similarly, an X (former Twitter) user agreed with the idea and said,

Crazy stupid batsh*t theory. Proximus Caesar is a descendant of Koba, and Noa is a descendant of Caesar.”

Meanwhile, another offered a whole new concept,

I think it’s the opposite. It would be amazing if a villain like Proximus was directly related to Caesar and Noa to Koba.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Koba’s strong hatred for humans stems from years of abuse and torture in the name of science.
  • After Koba passed away, his idealogy lived on, which continued the impending war with humans.
  • Proximus Caesar leads a coastal clan of apes in search of human technology.
