** Similar to Creator/{{Pixar}}, characters have made cameos in each others' films. One example being in BeeMovie, which briefly featured a bear which looked very similar to Vincent (possibly ''was'' Vincent) from OverTheHedge. Mason and Phil from WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}} also made a brief appearance in WesternAnimation/{{Turbo}}.

[[ThePenguinsOfMadagascar Dr. Blowhole]]: He is a mad scientist dolphin who plans to take revenge on the human race, who forced him to perform tricks at Coney Island for their amusement, by conquering the earth and claiming everyone's souls. He is described by Skipper and Private as being "pure evil, with skin that's surprisingly pleasant to the touch," which Blowhole claims is because he always moisturizes. He appears to love rubbing it in that he has far superior technology than the penguins do, thanks to Eris, which usually gets on Kowalski's nerves. Unlike other clients of the friends, instead of simply leaving his enemies to die in a deathtrap, he typically stays to oversee their destruction personally, well aware they'll likely escape somehow (telling Julian as much when asked), unless he'd be killed as well if he stays (such as locking them in his base as it self destructs). this makes quite the useful [[genresavvy]] member of eris' clients

[[MonstersVsAliens Galaxhar and Wicked Jack the pumpkin alien]]: Gallaxhar was an evil alien overlord who hoped to take over Earth, in the name of Eris and the Friends. He was served by gigantic robot probes (around the same size as Insectosaurus) and possessed a giant cloning machine. The reason why he joined up with the friends, he claims, is because he seemed to have suffered several traumas in his youth, driving him to destroy his own homeworld, and planned to make a new one on Earth, for his his main goal. As his side-plan, he aimed to collect quantonium - the substance that transformed Susan - to give his cloning machine enough power to generate an army of clones of himself to conquer Earth, and was determined to extract it from Susan. Unfortunately, his first attempt to retrieve the Quantonium, by robot probe, failed. His second attempt, which required him to visit Earth, nearly succeeded. He was able to capture Susan, whose body contained the Quantonium, and extract the element from her. However, her monster friends saved her and programmed the computer to cause the ship to self destruct. Although Gallaxhar and most of his clones are destroyed and soul-collected along with the ship, a few clones escaped on their personal hovering devices. Though it is likely the clones were found by Eris, and slain viciously for their failure.

They know people get annoyed with Pixar for never having a female lead and Disney for being all about its princesses, and are trying to capture that audience. In the last few movies that weren't sequels we've got a movie that's totally on the side of its female leads who are [[{{Chickification}} chickified]] by no one. For instance, ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' as a fearless reporter who immediately shoots down her [[http://www.heartless-bitches.com/rants/niceguys/niceguys.shtml Nice Guy]] and for getting legitimately upset at her love interest for lying to her, ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' has a tough and clever viking girl who bows to no one, ''MonstersVsAliens'' has the only superheroine origin movie we're likely to see on the big screen in a long time (even if it's disguised by calling her a "monster"), and the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' series has yet another tough and smart fighter who also manages to be a catgirl who ''isn't'' sexualized, but is no less an AmazonianBeauty in her own way. Also, ''WesternAnimation/TheCroods'' have a family of [[BigBeautifulWoman thick heavyset women]] and are proud of it. This approach goes all the way back to ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', which gives us two supporting women who are big plot movers and often act with more guts and inner strength than the actual hero of the film.

* Dreamworks Animation ''have'' proven themselves lately with the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 franchise]] and ''Film/HowToTrainYourDragon''. Despite this, some people still hold bias against Dreamworks Animation, ''especially'' when sequels are involved.

Remember in the late 80's when Disney's movies were bombing and Don Bluth's films were sucessful, and how everything went vice versa during the 90's? The same thing is going to happen with Pixar and Dreamworks. Pixar has been the lead for about 15 years now, and Dreamworks has been inferior to them for about the same amount of time. ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' is (in this troper's opinion) The strongest and most successful Pixar film, and when you're at the top, there's only one way you can go. Case in point, Pixar's last film is ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2'', a sequel to their least successful film, which has done even worse by the company's standards. Pixar is also making a ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' sequel or spinoff, which is what took Newt's slot. In 2010, Dreamwork's films have been considerbly darker and more fleshed out, such as in ''HTTYD'' and to a lesser extent ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} 4''. This might just signal a role reversal, and Pixar might just reach its low point, its apocalypse; Its Pixar-calypse if you will if ''Film/{{Brave}}'' doesn't measure up artistically in 2012. Dreamworks might just be on the road to genuinely good movies...
* Considering Cars 2 is Pixar's worst-rated movie, there might be some merit to this. In addition, ''Film/{{Brave}}'' is proving to be a lesser effort to a degree in critics' eyes so it seems that Pixar will no longer get a free ride about their films anymore.

Added DiffLines:

[[WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians The Guardians]]: This was...a tricky assignment for God. As his commandments always state there shall be no other gods before him, it took him some convincing by one of his captains (the man in the moon) that the children of the world needed some extra protection. Eventually, God relented, reasoning that even if they technically stole the thunder from his part in the holidays, they are still about spreading joy and cheer, and that's something he's all for. As of such, the guardians have been steadily growing as their ArchEnemy Pitch Black was corrupted by Eris, and thus needs more members to keep him at bay. The members include..
* Sandy the Sandman: The earliest of the guardians, as people always will need sleep, and possibly the most powerful. His power to induce sleep and fight off nightmares makes him invaluable, and as perhaps the strongest voice of the guardians [[TheQuietOne even if he doesn't say much.]]
* Nickolas St. North AKA Santa Claus: North my be boisterous, bombastic, and sometimes a bit overentusiastic, but at his core is a wonder at the beauty of the world, and as the guardian with the most recognized power, uses his north pole as their base of operations. He's also a keen mentor, and a daring spellcaster as well.
* Bunnymund the Easter Bunny: When a rabbit protected his burrow from being shot in australia, man in the moon decided to give this ordinary rabbit a promotion to the bringer of secular easter joy and renewal. Tough as nails, but still dedicated to spreading hope, Bunny's definitely rough around the edges, but he takes his job spreading joy to the world very seriously.
