|~ King as his Rogues battle in the climax|
It is revealed in the film that King and his wolves are a vicious group known as the Rogues, an offshoot of Eastern Pack wolves that broke away from Tony at some point. Not much else is given about them. King has darker fur than a lot of members in his pack, bearing a dark ash gray color. He also has prominent teeth, seen especially when he growls and laughs. Both of these are comparably different than many members of Tony's pack, emphasizing his distance from them.
While out, Stinky, Claudette, and Runt examine the place where Humphrey used to go log boarding. Runt climbs a tree to prove himself and sees three unfamiliar wolves approaching, quickly revealed to be members of the Rogues. In the ensuing encounter, the three wolves run off with Runt, bringing him back to their leader King. True to form, King seeks to use Runt as a bargaining chip to gain power. However, his plan also entails using the Rogues to kill every Alpha of both Winston and Tony's unified packs and take over their territory. King also makes it clear that he intends to kill Runt if the time for their ransom runs out or if his parents and pack don't show up.
In the meantime, King has his daughter Princess watch over Runt, which brings out her maternal instincts and makes her protective of the cub. To rescue Runt, Humphrey (standing atop Garth's back and partially hidden in the tall grass) poses as an abnormally large Alpha to distract King and his leading Rogues. When Kate rescues Runt, King orders his Rogues on the attack. However, the Rogues are fought back by the unified Pack members and bears directed by a bear cub Humphrey and Kate helped prior to this confrontation. His Rogues are defeated and sent running, trampling King in the process. King is forced to retreat and calls uselessly for Princess to aid him after she rejects his orders to attack the unified packs' home. What becomes of him afterwards is unknown, but it can be assumed that he and the other Rogues fled beyond their former territory.
As a leading Rogue, King's primary concern is gaining power for himself and his wolves. This extends to his willingness to abduct a cub to lure his rescuers to their deaths and then kill said cub when his usefulness ends. Despite this though, King seems to legitimately care for his daughter Princess, even if he is willing to use her as a bargaining chip (such as when he was convinced that the "big Alpha" Humphrey wanted her as a mate). He even appears shocked rather than angry when she refuses to follow through with his orders.
King also shows some signs of being a Social Darwinist, a shared philosophy among his Rogues (barring Princess). He insults Runt's size as a sign of impurity and weakness among Winston's pack for permitting an Alpha to marry and mate with an Omega. Throughout, he also preaches about the strength of his Alphas for their "purity" and refusal to permit anyone like Omegas from working within their group. This is also notable by how he fawns over Humphrey's "big Alpha" disguise, claiming it as a powerful and pure wolf.
- It is also notable how King serves as a dark foil to Tony's portrayal from the first film. Tony's motives then were driven by a refusal to abandon tradition and the desire to ensure his pack's livelihood. King, however, is motivated by a lust for power and cares for his pack primarily as an extension of his Social Darwinist beliefs. Both are parents who would use their own children in mating plots, although Tony sought unity through their Alpha marriage traditions, whereas King simply wants any opportunity to ensure the Rogues' "purity" so as to accommodate his ego as the leader. While Tony eventually changes his ways, King remains with his obsessions until he is forced into retreat.
- He is voiced by unknown voice actor Blackie Rose, who also fills in for Chris Carmack as Garth.
- King and some of his Rogues seem to make a cameo appearance in The Great Wolf Games, watching as Claudette and Fleet compete in the final race. However, the significance of their appearance (and whether it's actually them or just a reuse/repurposing of their models as spectators, as the franchise is known for doing) is unknown.
