Added DiffLines:

* FunnyOctopus: Of the LaughablyEvil variety. He's a genuine threat to the penguins, but has ridiculously over-the-top mannerisms.

* SanitySlippage: Alex is an obvious carnivore, but he never harmed any of the other animals while in the zoo because food was always given to him. While in Madagascar, his craving for meat grows stronger and stronger and eventually his predatory nature comes out.

* SanitySlippage: Alex is an obvious carnivore, but he never harmed any of the other animals while in the zoo because food was always given to him. While in Madagascar, his craving for meat grows stronger and stronger and eventually his predatory nature comes out. Once he finds an alternate food source than steak and his friends, he regains his bearings.



* {{Flanderization}}: In the third movie, his crazy side is played up more and he isn't as sensitive or serious as he could be before.



* BigBeautifulWoman: According to Smith, she loved Gloria because she was both huge ''and'' sexy.

to:

* BigBeautifulWoman: According to Smith, she loved Gloria because she was both huge ''and'' sexy. Moto Moto also says she's the fattest hippo he's ever met, and from what we see of the reserve's hippo population, he's not lying.



* {{Breakout Character}}s: They got their own TV series and movie.

to:

* {{Breakout Character}}s: They got their own TV series and movie. They weren't even billed as main characters in the first movie.



* TokenGoodTeammate: While none of them are evil, they are quite big [[JerkAss jerks]] except for the naive and kind-hearted Private.

* TheStarscream: PlayedForLaughs in the second film. The moment he arrives on the reserve, he declares himself the new ruler and thinks they've happily accepted him as such (Maurice quips that it's a non-hostile takeover). He spends the rest of the film trying to amass a following among the animals.



* DemotedToExtra: In the sequel films he rarely does anything of importance.



* NoManGetsLeftBehind: They're freed from the ship at the end of the first film and join the main group for the rest of their misadventures in the sequels.



* BigBadEnsemble: Shares the role of main antagonist of ''Escape 2 Africa'' with Makunga.



* {{Expy}}: Of Scar from ''Disney/TheLionKing'', with his manipulative nature played up for laughs. Unlike Scar, though, Makunga is just more of a pompous jerk instead of outright evil

Added DiffLines:

* TricksterMentor: Succesfully tricks Alex into thinking he's giving him helpful tips for the coming-of-age ceremony, when he's setting him up to take control of the reserve.


Added DiffLines:

* AdvertisedExtra: He's heavily played up in trailers and advertising to appear like a major new character, but he's more of a supporting character who falls off the map about halfway through the film. Furthermore, he's only a critical character in Gloria and Melman's subplot.
* AmicableExes: Though Gloria rejects him, they're still seen working together to dig for water.


Added DiffLines:

* CasanovaWannabe: Implied when Julien is asking for someone to volunteer as the sacrifice, and suggesting someone who's never found love. Moto Moto begins hiding behind the much fatter Gloria to not be seen, perhaps implying that despite being regarded as the hunkiest hippo around, he's failed to find any genuine relationship likely because of how shallow he is.


Added DiffLines:

* DumbMuscle: He's very buff, but not very bright, as he can't even hold up two fingers when he says "twice". He also falls hook, line, and sinker for Julien's sacrifice theory.
