In the first ''Ice Age'' film, Sid 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, 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, 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.

* {{Jerkass}}: Sid can come off like sometimes, most notably in the third movie where he doesn't even give his friends one word of thanks for embarking on that perilous journey to save him, and instead complains about how hard watching his kids were - for ''one'' day! It's more about immaturity than simply being a jerk.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Sid tells Manny how his family abandoned him, he asks Manny about his family. Manny doesn't answer. We find out what happened to his family in the cave drawings scene. [[spoiler:Manny had a wife and child who were killed by humans, and he's still grieving for them.]]

* MeaningfulName: Several of the characters have meaningful names that reflect the [[FauxSymbolism depth of the movie's writing.]] Manfred means "Man of Peace" and his character arc has him show he stands for justice and forgiveness and like a man of peace, he brokers reconciliation between himself and his human enemies. Diego is the Spanish form of the name Jacob, which means "Deceiver, or, He Deceives" and within the plot of the film Diego is a DoubleAgent, glibly lying to Manny and Sid and setting them up. However, like the original Jacob of the Bible, Diego gets redemption as well, though from an unlikely source: the baby - and Manny. Roshan, the name of the baby, is Hindi and means "Light" or "Light at Dawn" and he is the peace child who brings light into the midst of three lonely souls and makes them a family.
