King Julien the Terrible is a character from All Hail King Julien.
Long ago, he ruled the kingdom of Madagascar with fear and intimidation, which nearly caused the extinction of the lemur species (and possibly other animals as well). Luckily, the people fought back and pinned his tail under a rock in a dark cave.
Decades later, he would be known as a monster called the Gorch and the lemurs would throw fruit to him so he wouldn't terrorize the kingdom and escape the cave. The fruit helped him to survive, but his tail was too strong for him to hack off.
King Julien XIII, Clover, Maurice and Mort found him and King Julien XIII put him into his royal counsel as another royal advisor. King Julien the Terrible got them to free him by passing himself off as a lemur called "Doc Sugarfoot". Soon enough, King Julien the Terrible used his metaphors (which made no sense at all, similarly to Sage) to win the hearts of the other lemurs except for King Julien XIII, Mort, Maurice and Clover. Julien got fed up with King Julien the Terrible's showing off and not letting Julien do his job, so they challenged each other to an election.
During the election, King Julien the Terrible started making up lies and spreading rumors about Julien saying that he is educated (which would normally make King Julien XIII better than him), abandoned 20 children which he never owned, and didn't own a rocking chair (which should have no effect at all), giving King Julien the Terrible a lead in the polls.
Clover and Maurice discovered the truth about King Julien the Terrible and were about to go warn the others, but King Julien the Terrible decided to attempt to silence them by having crushing them with a boulder.
At the debate, King Julien the Terrible easily amazes the lemurs by giving a speech with three random words ("Back porch, overalls, huckleberry") while Julien gave a sincere heartfelt speech (but was ignored). At the last minute, Clover and Maurice arrived, wet, dirty, and tired, and told everyone the truth about King Julien the Terrible, but even though they knew the truth, they still elected him anyways. Just as King Julien the Terrible was about to begin his reign of tyranny one again, he got struck by lightning and, after a few seconds, turned into ashes, killing him. Leaving Julien as King again.
He later appeared in For Whom the Bell Gods Toll as an urn full of his ashes as King Julien faces trial in the afterlife then as a ghost in The Day Before Tomorrow, along with the others that King Julien 'killed'.
