* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The Dodos are in fact extinct, but they didn't die out during the Ice Age. They were wiped out by man very quickly after discovering the remote island of Mauritius were they used to live. Not mainly for food (they tasted awful), but simply as some sort of sport... They were in no way "too dumb to live" as portayed in the movie, but just evolutionary unfit for the challenge by naked monkeys who, after a long sea travel, would see clubbing fat flightless birds as appropriate entertainment.

** While escaping from the lava, Manny at one point makes a jump to get over a chasm. Elephants, and by extension mammoths, are of the few mammals that can't jump.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Flanderization}}: While Sid has always been an idiot, he seems to get stupider and stupider in each film. In fact, he's gotten so stupid, he pretty much acts like a jerk in the sequels (even moreso than the original) and the movies try to justify it by saying he's too stupid to know any better.

* NeverTrustATrailer: The teaser trailer showed Manny saying to Scrat "You're an embarrassment to nature, you know that?". In the movie, he was actually talking to Sid. Also, it showed Scrat being crushed by a foot, implying it to be Manny's, when in the movie, Manny didn't know Scrat at that point.

In the first ''Ice Age'' film, Sid (Creator/JohnLeguizamo)is left behind sleeping when the rest of his family and all the other prehistoric mammals begin the journey to the south. Awaking, he meets Manfred (Ray Romano), a mammoth who is resolutely travelling to the north, and decides to follow him. When a human camp is attacked by a pack of vengeful sabers, a woman takes her baby and jumps in a river. Before she dies from her trauma, Manny and Sid rescue the baby. The two animals decide to search for the father and return the baby to him. Diego (Creator/DenisLeary), one of the tigers that attacked the humans, comes also claiming the baby. Diego starts to work as a double agent, but along the journey he is befriended by Manny and Sid and finally joins them.

* AscendedFanboy: [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Josh Peck]] was a fan of ''Ice Age'' before being cast as Eddie in the sequel. He was very excited to be a part of the saga. Queen Latifah was also a fan of the original film before she was cast as Ellie in the same film.

** It's possible that Scrat hasn't gotten to the event that froze him yet.
* SayMyName: Manny and Diego both shout "SID!" after realising the baby is missing, thanks to Sid trying to PickUpBabesWithBabes.

** The earlier films were extremely good about depicting the mammoths running, no matter how urgent the situation -- like modern day elephants, they moved at what was basically a fast walk. The later films just have them straight up gallop.



** Ellie, until she realizes she's all mammoth in the third.

** The Easter special depicts the glyptodons as egg layers. Glyptodons were large mammals related to armadillos, and did not lay eggs.

** The leader of the hyrax army in the fourth film paints half his face blue, a clear reference to William Wallace in Braveheart. The army as a whole, with their ZergRush against the pirates and Sid's communication with them by dance, channels the Ewoks in ReturnOfTheJedi
