List of characters in the Ice Age films

This is a list of the characters in the Ice Age films mentioned by a name either presented in the films or in official material.

Characters who appeared in both films

Manfred

Diego is a Smilodon who was seen in both the first film and the second film.

In the first film, he conspired with other saber-toothed cats to kill and eat a human baby in an act of revenge because the people of the baby's village had hunted half of Diego's pack. In a deleted scene, it is revealed that Diego is the only one that Soto (the leader) trusts, and that he considered the rest of pack to be nothing more than a group of idiots. He was sent by Soto to take the baby while he and the three other pack members (Zeke, Oscar and Lenny) were fighting the adults. However when Diego tried to take the baby, the child's mother snatched him away just in time but when she was trapped between Diego and a waterfall, the mother chose to jump rather than face the angry beast. Soto was infuriated to see that Diego had come back with nothing, so he threatened Diego; he must either bring the baby to Soto at Half-Peak or be killed by his own pack.

Diego went to the bottom of the waterfall, only to see that Manfred, a mammoth, and Sid, a ground sloth, had found the baby first. Diego offered to take the baby back to his family, but clearly wished to take him back to his pack. Manfred realised Diego's intentions, but also knew that neither he nor Sid could track and so he must travel with Diego so that he could lead the way.

Later, Diego met with Oscar and Zeke, two of his pack-mates. They informed him that Soto was adamant about his plans, either Diego must come back with the baby or he could not come back at all. Diego told the two that not only would Soto receive the baby, but also a mammoth, meaning that he intended to betray Manfred. In the morning Diego saved Sid's life from a pair of angry brontotheres.

Later in the journey Diego saw that his pack had been through the same trail that he, Manfred and Sid were using. He saw one of their pawprints, and he altered it to resemble a human footprint. With this, Diego claimed to have found a shortcut through an ice cave, but Manfred and Sid insisted that it was not the most sensible idea. An avalanche started, and the three were forced to go inside. As they traveled through the ice cave, the baby soon made his way through a series of elaborate ice slides with Manfred, Sid, and Diego hurrying to get him back. After the slides had ended and everyone was no longer moving, Diego seemed to be the only one who had enjoyed himself (except for Roshan, the baby).

Diego and the others then had to stop for the night, and it was here that Diego realised that despite their differences, Sid and Manfred considered him to be a friend. This loyalty was shown further when the "herd", as they now called themselves, had reached a river of lava, and Diego had nearly fallen into it and died. Manfred caught him in time, but was nearly killed himself. Diego asked Manfred "why [he] had done that, as [he] could have been killed", and Manfred replied that "That's what you do in a herd. You look out for one another".

Soon, Diego revealed to Manfred and Sid his true intentions: he had plotted to bring Manfed and the baby to the pack to be killed and eaten, but he also explained that he wanted nothing more to do with the pack; that Manfred and Sid were Diego's true friends. The three worked out a plan to drive the pack off. It worked, but Diego was hurt in his confrontation with Soto, and while Soto had been killed, Diego was severely injured. It seemed as though he'd died and Manfred was left to travel with Sid and go to return the baby.

However, Diego survived and caught up with Manny and Sid just in time to see the baby taken by his Father. After a joyous reunion, the three friends travelled South.

In the second film Diego was considerably less hostile, and had his own personal conflict: he feared water. Diego avoided water at all times, even going so far as to fear stepping on puddles. (Although in the first movie Diego is clearly shown stepping on water, when he is chasing the mother and the child.) Eventually, however, Diego overcame his fear when he saw Sid, Crash, and Eddie drowning in a river and realised that in order to save them, he must swim. In doing this, Diego overcame his fear of water.

Diego is voiced by Denis Leary in both movies.

crat

The deadly and dangerous leader of a pack of saber-toothed cats, Soto wanted to seek out the baby Roshan and his pack, so that he could eat Roshan in vengeance for the murders of several of his pack-mates. He is the main antagonist in the first film.

As part of his plan to take the baby, Soto planned out an attack on the human camp so that while he and three other saber-teeth would attack the humans, Diego would slip in, unnoticed, and take the baby. Diego failed at this task and Soto was not pleased, telling Diego to bring the baby to Half-Peak where he would meet with the others. Soto dispatched Oscar and Zeke, two other saber-teeth to warn Diego to hurry and bring the baby or not return at all, though was reciprocated with the news that alongside the baby, Soto would receive a mammoth.

Soto eventually made it with his pack to Half Peak and informed Diego that while he had his doubts, he was pleased that Diego had made it. Soon it would happen that unbeknownst to Soto, Diego was in league with both Manfred and Sid, and so Sid would lure Soto and his pack-mates away from both Manfred and the baby with a decoy made of snow.

Soto made his way to the end of the altercation in which he made an attempt to kill Manfred, but was stopped by Diego, whom he severely wounded and then proceeded to kill Manfred, but was knocked by Manfred into a wall of ice, where he was killed by falling icicles jarred loose by his hitting the wall.

Soto was voiced by Goran Visnjic.

Zeke

Lenny was a fat scimitar cat shown in the first film.

Lenny was one of Soto's pack members that would try to rob a human tribe of their baby as vengeance for killing off their pack mates. In the deleted scenes, it was revealed that he, like others in his pack, wanted very much to abandon their chase of the humans and their child so as to follow masses of migrating animals headed south.

Lenny was the fattest of his pack and like the others, made it to Half Peak, where he was repetitively told by Zeke the joys of the mammoth's meat. He fought at Half Peak, only to be defeated in trying to kill Manfred, and left with Oscar as fast as he could when he witnessed Soto being killed.

Lenny was voiced by Alan Tudyk.

Runar

Dab was a dodo shown in the first film.

Dab was the dodo who stole the watermelon that Manfred had picked out for the baby Roshan to eat. Dab made it back to the flock of dodos and set the watermelon that he had taken down with two others, shortly before spotting Manfred and the others and squawking out "Intruders!", before falling into a smouldering pit. It is implied jokingly in the 2-disc copy of "Ice Age" that it was all an act and that he is still alive.

Dab was voiced by Alan Tudyk.

ylvia

Carl and Frank are two brontotheres.

The two appeared at the beginning of the film when Sid the sloth was shown stepping on their salad and eating an important part of it, the dandelion. The two animals soon chased after him in the hopes of killing him, but were stopped forcefully by Manny the mammoth, by being hurled through the air. They'd held a powerful grudge against Sid for what he'd done and when they next saw him, he was in the same hot mud pool that they were in and was erroneously referring to them as ladies. Again, Carl and Frank stampeded after the hapless sloth, but were waylaid when they saw that he had already been "killed" by a saber-toothed cat named Diego, which was part of Sid's plan to get them to be fooled into leaving him alone and not trying to kill him off, and gave up their chase post-haste, defeated. Carl had thick lips and a thick horn, while Frank had more pointed lips and a thinner horn.

Carl was voiced by Cedric the Entertainer and Frank was voiced by Stephen Root.

While their species is listed as "Brontotherium", they are more the size of Brontops dispar. It thus cannot be concluded which species they are, short of an amalgamation.


Jennifer and Rachel

They first made their presence known to the opening characters by means of shooting pebbles through reeds at Sid and Diego, then baiting them so as to humiliate them, but Diego began chasing them, leading both Sid and Diego to Ellie. After much persuasion, Ellie and her brothers joined Manny, Sid, and Diego, though Crash and Eddie spared almost no opportunity in bothering Diego.

As they travelled with Manny and his friends, Ellie grew closer to Manny, putting both Crash and Eddie somewhat closer to Manny and his friends, but creating a short grudge when Manny tried "hitting on" Ellie. In time, however, they saw behind the petty grudges and worked together with Manny, Sid, and DIego to escape the flood, but left with Ellie when she left Manny and his friends to cross the minefield, as she claimed that it was suicide to cross it. Crash and Eddie joined Ellie in trying to escape the flood, but soon ran into trouble when they were trapped in a cave.

Ellie insisted that they leave her to the point of pushing them outwards from a small crevice, but they promised to return with help, and true to their word, sought out Manny to try and free Ellie. They eventually made their way into a rushing current of water and were almost swept away when a foolish Sid came along to jump into the current, leaving them, in addition to holding onto a branch for dear life against the current of water, trying to hold onto an unconscious Sid. Diego eventually helped when he jumped in and saved them from drowning along with Sid. When Manny had saved Ellie from drowning, they helped Ellie back onto solid ground, but almost drowned when the flood was encroaching.

Eventually however, the waters drained away, leaving Crash, Eddie, and all of the others alive. When a herd of mammoths came by (as mammoths were presumed all but extinct), they thought that Ellie would go with them and leave Manny, so they went with her. But as it turned out, Manny and Ellie stayed together because they wanted to, rather than being obligated to, and so they left onwards, taking along with Sid and Diego, Crash and Eddie as well.

Crash had a flatter nose than Eddie, had blue eyes and was voiced by Seann William Scott and Eddie had a pointed nose, brown eyes and was voiced by Josh Peck.

Fast Tony

Cholly made his appearance in Ice Age: The Meltdown.

He is a chalicothere, who was around during the days of the flooding of the valleys where the animals lived. He suffers from chronic and extremely unpleasant flatulence which he blames upon the fact that his stomach "hates him". He is seen in the second film sitting on a log trying to direct the flatulence away from him and mistakenly letting it loose directly in front of Sid the sloth's face.

In the game version of , he plays a significantly more important role than what he was shown as in the film: he helps Scrat get from place to place by means of his flatulence, but Scrat must earn the favor by giving Cholly apples to eat.

Cholly is voiced by Alan Tudyk.

The Lone Gunslinger

Billy is a young glyptodont shown in the second film at Sid's camp joining James in picking on Sid, pulling on a vine with his mouth to hold Sid up and use him as a piñata. As Sid told his friends that the young animals at the camp were fond of him, he asked Billy if he agreed, but Billy just mocked him by saying "Don't make me eat you." Billy was also shown during the migration, panicking among other animals when they realized the dam had burst.

Billy is voiced by Caitlin Rose Anderson.

Ashley

Cretaceous is an altered Icthyosaur and one of the film's main antagonists.

Cretaceous is shown in the beginning frozen in a great block of ice that was jarred loose when the wall of ice began crumbling. The ice melted, releasing both Maelstrom and him into the lake which was all but abandoned by most animals. When they made it to the ice lake, the first animal that they had encountered and eaten was Stu the glyptodont, leaving behind only his shell. The two sea reptiles then swam further down the series of rivers where they eventually reached Manny's herd as well as Crash, Eddie, and Ellie. Cretaceous made a great lunge at Manny, but was caught on his tusks, only to be flung far off, hitting a piece of ice and falling back into the water.

Later, when the dam broke, the two reptiles went swimming on the wall of water that was slowly approaching towards the escaping masses and pulled down Manny when he was swimming to save Ellie. Manny devised a plan to rid himself of the two sea reptiles, by having them try to chase him, he tricked them into hitting a log that was wedged under a large rock. The plan worked, freeing Ellie, and the boulder, presumably, crushed and killed the two reptiles.

Maelstrom

Zach was a member of Sid's family who was mentioned in the first film as having left him behind when the migration came.

Marshall

Uncle Fungus was a member of Sid's family who had left without him.


Cousin Wilton

Shown not in the second film, but mentioned on the official website, Ellie's grandmother was the victim of a rather nasty crushing when Ellie jumped on her back for a piggyback ride.

Dung Beetle's Mother

Shown not in the second film, but mentioned by name, this character is the mother of a lady dung-beetle who received a ball of dung as a gift, saying that her mother had given it as a gift.

Carl's Grandmother

Shown not in the first film, but mentioned by name in the Spanish dialogue, Carl's grandmother had a recipe for a salad made with leaves which was used by Frank as a recipe for his travelling companion, Carl.
