—Jane to Clayton about the gorillas

Jane Porter is a character from the Deep Jungle world in Kingdom Hearts. She is on an expedition into the jungle in search of gorillas with hunter Clayton. She befriends Tarzan and his gorilla family and protects them from Clayton and the Heartless.


Kingdom Hearts[edit]

Jane has come with Clayton to the jungle, in order to study the gorillas that inhabit it. By the time Sora arrives, she has already befriended Tarzan. Jane meets Sora when Tarzan arrives at the camp with him and is rather astonished to see that Sora speaks English.[1] Later, Jane finds out that Clayton tried to shoot Terk and is angry at him. She is later captured by the Heartless and held hostage at the Climbing Trees while Clayton goes to hunt the gorillas. She is soon freed, and she accompanies Sora, Tarzan, Donald, and Goofy to the Cavern of Hearts after Clayton is defeated. There, deep within the waterfalls, Sora finds and seals Deep Jungle's Keyhole. Jane then realizes that Tarzan's repeated ape sounds mean "heart". Fortunately for Sora, Donald, and Goofy, she remains unaware that they are from another world.


Jane has long, dark brown hair, blue eyes, and seems to wear eyeliner and lipstick. Clothing-wise Jane wears a faded, white tank top, walks barefoot, and wears a long, brown sarong that reaches to just above her ankles. This sarong is held up by a knot tied on her right side, which exposes most of her right leg.


Jane is a kind and gregarious person, as one can see as she welcomes Sora, and invites him to stay at the camp at once. She cares greatly for Tarzan and the gorillas, and becomes very upset with Clayton over the matter of hurting the latter. The gorillas, noticeably Terk, respect her friendship with Tarzan, as the young gorilla is seen huddling with Jane in the climbing trees when the Heartless begin to attack the Jungle's inhabitants. She also seems to have an understanding of the heart and friendship, as seen when Tarzan mentions that Clayton lost his heart, along with his friends at the sealing of Deep Jungle's Keyhole.


In the original film, Tarzan, Jane Porter is voiced by Minnie Driver. She arrives with her father, Archimedes Q. Porter, on the shores of Africa, hoping to research the gorillas. To her amazement, she encounters a wild man, Tarzan, and quickly befriends him and teaches him about the human world. Their hired guide, Clayton, has other ideas than research, however, and convinces Tarzan to lead the trio to the gorillas. Clayton's evil motives are revealed, as he attempts to capture the gorillas and sell them to a zoo in England for a fine price. Tarzan and Jane manage to stop Clayton, leading to his demise at his own hands. Tarzan and Jane both live in the Jungle happily together, and her father continues on with his research.
