----
scenes in between. Oh, and [[{{Mascot}} every single]] [[BreakoutCharacter ad for]] [[WolverinePublicity every movie.]]
-----
* AlphaBitch: Steffie stands out AccidentalHero: He saves the herd and everyone else by complete accident in ''The Meltdown'' after he inadvertently breaks one of the giant ice walls open with his acorn, completely draining the titular flood.
* AdvertisedExtra: While his role has increased in the sequels, Scrat still is only used for comic relief. Comic relief that is largely unrelated to the central plot. Anytime the main cast interacts with him, he's treated as vermin.
* BadassAdorable: As a few piranhas and a Siren would attest if they could.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: When he ''does'' impact the plot, he impacts it big time. As in causing tectonic plates to shift big time.
* BreakoutCharacter: Ever since Scrat was positively reviewed by many in the first film, they increased his screen time the rest of the film series. He even appears in more advertisements for the film than any other character and he is
the most popular of all the cast. Since 2013, Scrat now appears on Creator/BlueSkyStudios' VanityPlate.
* ButtMonkey: The award goes to Scrat. Nothing ever goes the poor guy's way. He exists only for the purpose of
being a butt-monkey -- er, squirrel. Thing.
* CartoonCreature: Yes, Scrat is a sabertooth squirrel, but there is only one problem. Sabertooth Squirrels never existed in RealLife and God knows he does not look like a modern day squirrel, he has the tail of a raccoon and snout of a dog. Although, since the release of ''Dawn of the Dinosaurs'', a prehistoric animal was discovered which held remarkable likeness to Scrat, the scientific name being ''Cronopio dentiacutus''. More info about it can be found [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cronopio_%28mammal%29 here.]]
* TheChewToy: All he wants is to have his acorn in peace. [[YankTheDogsChain The world will never let him have it]].
* CompanionCube: PlayedForLaughs. As the sequels have gone on, his acorn has been played less as something he wants to eat and more as his LoveInterest -- even getting a montage set to a rewritten version of "Alone Again, Naturally" when he temporarily abandons it for Scratte.
* CosmicPlaything: ''Everything'' is out to prevent him from burying his beloved acorn, and is merciless in execution.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Sometimes. He defeats a school of piranhas on his own.
* DecoyProtagonist: Mainly due to TrailersAlwaysLie.
* {{Determinator}}: No matter how bad things get for him, Scrat will ''never'' stop trying to get his acorn.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: In ''Dawn of the Dinosaurs''. He ''could'' have settled into a loving relationship with Scratte, but he ultimately chose his acorn over her in the end.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: His
very snobby while Katie simple and Meghan single-minded obsesssion with getting the acorn often leads him into deadly peril and with no means of escaping after getting it.
* TheDogBitesBack: In the second film, Scrat goes ''completely sideways'' and attacks Sid for reviving him, after being in the Pearly Gates and being offered the biggest acorn in the universe (as the Adagio from ''Spartacus'' played.)
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: He's never getting his hands on that acorn.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: He's the protagonist of a at least one of the video games.
* InformedSpecies: The creators had to let the audience know he is a fictional prehistoric squirrel.
* IronButtMonkey: All the abuse he takes would kill the other characters, but he inflates, stretches, and is squished
just seem as much as any WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes character.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: In ''Collision Course'' he nearly brings about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. [[spoiler:After our heroes save the day, Scrat accidentally destroys all life on Mars instead.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In the fourth and fifth films, he accidentally triggers the cataclysms that threaten the heroes.
* RecurringExtra: Perhaps the most famous and iconic example of this trope, as he is pure comedy material.
* TheSpeechless: Can only make grunting and screaming noises. Cannot speak like other characters. This is ''briefly'' subverted in the opening of ''Collision Course'': when he is booted off the UFO he was controlling and is being flung around on a cable, he can be heard saying "oh, no" at one point.
* TimeAbyss: He never seems
to agree with age, no matter how much time has passed. He existed before the series of films started, splitting up Pangaea, and the epilogue of the first movie revealed that he survived ''thousands of years'' after the events (albeit due to being [[HumanPopsicle frozen in a block of ice]]).
* TooDumbToLive: He is both a CosmicPlaything and lucky enough to avoid being crossed out by natural selection.
* WolverinePublicity: Appears in
everything she says.
representing ''Ice Age''.
* Jerkass: They insult Peaches YankTheDogsChain: The acorn heaven in the second movie. Also, Scratlantis would count. If only he could repress that desire for being "Half Possum" and also see Louis as nothing but an uncool loser.
* JerksWithHeartsOfGold: They are genuinely concerend at
the climax for Louis and finally except him into the gang astounded by his bravery.acorn...

-----
* BadassInCharge: The leader of the sabertooth pack, and also the best fighter.
* BadBoss: The original film characterizes him as a Mafia leader of sorts without no qualms about killing his subordinates for failing him.
* BigBad: In the first movie and he
is a young very, very [[MagnificentBastard effective]] one, especially if one watches and easygoing, fun loving mammoth is aware that he is setting up a gambit for Diego's death at the same time Diego is machinating the demise of Manny and Roshan, [[AndZoidberg and Sid.]]

Even as leaders, their own which styles couldn't be more different; while Soto frequently threatens his pack, Manny doesn't hesitate to risk his life for his herd.
* EvilSoundsDeep[=/=]SoftSpokenSadist: Soto has a deep and forbidding voice that instantly warns the viewer that he's up to no good. Like was noted above, he's basically characterised as a mafia leader to some extent.
* FallingChandelierOfDoom: When Soto gets [[spoiler:knocked down by Manny]], he takes the time to [[spoiler:discover that the dislodged icicles are falling on him]].
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Granted, it happens off-screen, but [[spoiler:getting stabbed by icicles]] is still pretty brutal for a kid's film.

* KnightOfCerebus: He's one of the darkest Ice Age villains, which is justified as his primary goal was to kill a baby.
* OhCrap: He realizes his fate the moment [[spoiler:the icicles fall down on him]].
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Most of the plot focuses on
Manny learning to let go and Ellie.find a new family (as a result of Roshan and Sid's influence). While Soto has a personal vendetta to carry out against the baby, he doesn't take much action until the final act.
* {{Revenge}}: His decision to take revenge on the humans for the slaughter of his pack by eating their baby alive kick-starts the movie into true motion as all of the characters start colliding as a result of Soto's thirst for vengeance.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Most of the film deals with the development of Manny, Sid and Diego's relationship, hijinks and all. In contrast, Soto never engages in any of the comedy his henchmen do.
* WouldHurtAChild: His entire plan is to eat Roshan alive.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Soto attempts to kill Diego when the latter disobeys his commands in killing Manny. He's also not afraid in doing this to his other men if they fail to accomplish his goal.

Creator/TaraStrong

The baby that Manfred, Sid and Diego returned to his father.
-----
* AllLovingHero: Roshan is the [[http://movieglimpse.com/ice_age Peace Child]] whose
love interest for the animals brings them together in an unlikely herd and leads Manny on a journey of forgiveness to let go of his anger against humanity.
* AllThereInTheManual: He isn't named in the film. The novel reveals his name to be Roshan.
* CheerfulChild: Roshan is ''laughing'' happily when Sid drops him while he is climbing the cliff, and he takes everything in stride when it comes to being rescued by three animals - including [[VillainProtagonist Diego]].
* ChildrenRaiseYou: Roshan noticeably softens Manny and Diego, and Sid is right at home with the little tyke. His making the animals begin to care for him eventually leads to them becoming a [[FamilyOfChoice herd]].
* CutenessProximity: Most obvious whenever Sid is around him, but this happens with Manny and Diego, too.
* FearlessInfant: Roshan is this to a T. Manny even lampshades it: "You're a brave little squirt. I'll give you that."
* InfantImmortality: He ''is'' one of the main characters in the story, so yeah.
* LivingMacGuffin: This trope does fit Roshan, being more than just the "object" that the group has to return to his father after his mother's sacrifice for him.
* LongBusTrip: After being returned to his family, he has never appeared or been alluded to once in the sequels. A shame, because the SZH's rescue of him really changed them all for the better, and the herd was a result of his, uh, meddling (so to speak).
* MeaningfulName: Roshan is a Hindi name that means "light" or "light at dawn" and these meanings are evident in that he is a bright and cheerful baby, and his love for the animals eventually leads them out of the darkness of their [[DarkAndTroubledPast pasts]] and into the light of a [[FamilyOfChoice
new girlfriend.family.]]
* PlotArmour: Why he doesn't die in the movie even though there's many chances for him to.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: Downplayed. Roshan has a crucial role throughout the first movie since it was Manny, Sid, and Diego's goal to return to his family. However, Roshan has only appeared in one film and it's thanks to his presence that the trio decided to stick together since they got closer, which led to them meeting other members of the Herd.
* TokenHuman: And the first movie was the only one that featured humans.

* AnachronismStew: Brontotheres went extinct some 32 million years before the Ice Age began.
* BitPartBadguys: They are there to make Sid latch on to Manny
for protection and friendship after he defeated them.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Carl?" "Easy, Frank."
* DisproportionateRetribution: Carl and Frank want to kill
Sid because he... ruined their salad, accidentally flicked poop on them, unintentionally insulted them, and stole their impossible-to-find-dandelion.
* InterspeciesFriendship: Possibly, if the shape of their horns
is "This guy? For real?"anything to go by, Carl appears to be an ''Embolotherium'' while Frank looks like a ''Megacerops''.
* JerkassHasAPoint: While their reaction to everything mentioned on DisproportionateRetribution was extreme, those are still legitimate reasons to be pissed at Sid.
* RhinoRampage: Technically they are not rhinoceroses, but brontotheres, but otherwise they fit this trope perfectly (they are even referred to as "rhinos" in the film).
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Perhaps the only appearance of brontotheres in media (apart from documentaries about prehistoric life).
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: They are never seen without the other in the movie.



!Characters introduced in ''Ice Age''

[[folder:Scrat]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scrat_character_model.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Chris Wedge

A squirrel who shows up in the beginning before the opening credits, right after the end before the closing credits, and a couple of scenes in between. Oh, and [[{{Mascot}} every single]] [[BreakoutCharacter ad for]] [[WolverinePublicity every movie.]]
-----
* AccidentalHero: He saves the herd and everyone else by complete accident in ''The Meltdown'' after he inadvertently breaks one of the giant ice walls open with his acorn, completely draining the titular flood.
* AdvertisedExtra: While his role has increased in the sequels, Scrat still is only used for comic relief. Comic relief that is largely unrelated to the central plot. Anytime the main cast interacts with him, he's treated as vermin.
* BadassAdorable: As a few piranhas and a Siren would attest if they could.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: When he ''does'' impact the plot, he impacts it big time. As in causing tectonic plates to shift big time.
* BreakoutCharacter: Ever since Scrat was positively reviewed by many in the first film, they increased his screen time the rest of the film series. He even appears in more advertisements for the film than any other character and he is the most popular of all the cast. Since 2013, Scrat now appears on Creator/BlueSkyStudios' VanityPlate.
* ButtMonkey: The award goes to Scrat. Nothing ever goes the poor guy's way. He exists only for the purpose of being a butt-monkey -- er, squirrel. Thing.
* CartoonCreature: Yes, Scrat is a sabertooth squirrel, but there is only one problem. Sabertooth Squirrels never existed in RealLife and God knows he does not look like a modern day squirrel, he has the tail of a raccoon and snout of a dog. Although, since the release of ''Dawn of the Dinosaurs'', a prehistoric animal was discovered which held remarkable likeness to Scrat, the scientific name being ''Cronopio dentiacutus''. More info about it can be found [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cronopio_%28mammal%29 here.]]
* TheChewToy: All he wants is to have his acorn in peace. [[YankTheDogsChain The world will never let him have it]].
* CompanionCube: PlayedForLaughs. As the sequels have gone on, his acorn has been played less as something he wants to eat and more as his LoveInterest -- even getting a montage set to a rewritten version of "Alone Again, Naturally" when he temporarily abandons it for Scratte.
* CosmicPlaything: ''Everything'' is out to prevent him from burying his beloved acorn, and is merciless in execution.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Sometimes. He defeats a school of piranhas on his own.
* DecoyProtagonist: Mainly due to TrailersAlwaysLie.
* {{Determinator}}: No matter how bad things get for him, Scrat will ''never'' stop trying to get his acorn.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: In ''Dawn of the Dinosaurs''. He ''could'' have settled into a loving relationship with Scratte, but he ultimately chose his acorn over her in the end.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: His very simple and single-minded obsesssion with getting the acorn often leads him into deadly peril and with no means of escaping after getting it.
* TheDogBitesBack: In the second film, Scrat goes ''completely sideways'' and attacks Sid for reviving him, after being in the Pearly Gates and being offered the biggest acorn in the universe (as the Adagio from ''Spartacus'' played.)
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: He's never getting his hands on that acorn.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: He's the protagonist of a at least one of the video games.
* InformedSpecies: The creators had to let the audience know he is a fictional prehistoric squirrel.
* IronButtMonkey: All the abuse he takes would kill the other characters, but he inflates, stretches, and is squished just as much as any WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes character.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: In ''Collision Course'' he nearly brings about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. [[spoiler:After our heroes save the day, Scrat accidentally destroys all life on Mars instead.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In the fourth and fifth films, he accidentally triggers the cataclysms that threaten the heroes.
* RecurringExtra: Perhaps the most famous and iconic example of this trope, as he is pure comedy material.
* TheSpeechless: Can only make grunting and screaming noises. Cannot speak like other characters. This is ''briefly'' subverted in the opening of ''Collision Course'': when he is booted off the UFO he was controlling and is being flung around on a cable, he can be heard saying "oh, no" at one point.
* TimeAbyss: He never seems to age, no matter how much time has passed. He existed before the series of films started, splitting up Pangaea, and the epilogue of the first movie revealed that he survived ''thousands of years'' after the events (albeit due to being [[HumanPopsicle frozen in a block of ice]]).
* TooDumbToLive: He is both a CosmicPlaything and lucky enough to avoid being crossed out by natural selection.
* WolverinePublicity: Appears in everything representing ''Ice Age''.
* YankTheDogsChain: The acorn heaven in the second movie. Also, Scratlantis would count. If only he could repress that desire for the acorn...

[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roshan.png]]
->Voiced by: Creator/TaraStrong

The baby that Manfred, Sid and Diego returned to his father.
-----
* AllLovingHero: Roshan is the [[http://movieglimpse.com/ice_age Peace Child]] whose love for the animals brings them together in an unlikely herd and leads Manny on a journey of forgiveness to let go of his anger against humanity.
* AllThereInTheManual: He isn't named in the film. The novel reveals his name to be Roshan.
* CheerfulChild: Roshan is ''laughing'' happily when Sid drops him while he is climbing the cliff, and he takes everything in stride when it comes to being rescued by three animals - including [[VillainProtagonist Diego]].
* ChildrenRaiseYou: Roshan noticeably softens Manny and Diego, and Sid is right at home with the little tyke. His making the animals begin to care for him eventually leads to them becoming a [[FamilyOfChoice herd]].
* CutenessProximity: Most obvious whenever Sid is around him, but this happens with Manny and Diego, too.
* FearlessInfant: Roshan is this to a T. Manny even lampshades it: "You're a brave little squirt. I'll give you that."
* InfantImmortality: He ''is'' one of the main characters in the story, so yeah.
* LivingMacGuffin: This trope does fit Roshan, being more than just the "object" that the group has to return to his father after his mother's sacrifice for him.
* LongBusTrip: After being returned to his family, he has never appeared or been alluded to once in the sequels. A shame, because the SZH's rescue of him really changed them all for the better, and the herd was a result of his, uh, meddling (so to speak).
* MeaningfulName: Roshan is a Hindi name that means "light" or "light at dawn" and these meanings are evident in that he is a bright and cheerful baby, and his love for the animals eventually leads them out of the darkness of their [[DarkAndTroubledPast pasts]] and into the light of a [[FamilyOfChoice new family.]]
* PlotArmour: Why he doesn't die in the movie even though there's many chances for him to.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: Downplayed. Roshan has a crucial role throughout the first movie since it was Manny, Sid, and Diego's goal to return to his family. However, Roshan has only appeared in one film and it's thanks to his presence that the trio decided to stick together since they got closer, which led to them meeting other members of the Herd.
* TokenHuman: And the first movie was the only one that featured humans.

* LongBusTrip: After being returned to his family, he has never appeared or been alluded to once in the sequels. A shame, because the SZH's rescue of him really changed them all for the better, and the herd was a result of his, uh, meddling (so to speak).
* MeaningfulName: Roshan is a Hindi name that means "light" or "light at dawn" and these meanings are evident in that he is a bright and cheerful baby, and his love for the animals eventually leads them out of the darkness of their [[DarkAndTroubledPast pasts]] and into the light of a [[FamilyOfChoice new family.]]
* PlotArmour: Why he doesn't die in the movie even though there's many chances for him to.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: Downplayed. Roshan has a crucial role throughout the first movie since it was Manny, Sid, and Diego's goal to return to his family. However, Roshan has only appeared in one film and it's thanks to his presence that the trio decided to stick together since they got closer, which led to them meeting other members of the Herd.
* TokenHuman: And the first movie was the only one that featured humans.

that are take on the Herd's main foes in the 4th movie.form of what you love most and try to tempt you into their clutches. Their true form resembles a mudskipper fish or a primitive amphibian.



* AnimeHair: You know how it looks like he’s wearing a Tricorner hat? That’s his hair.
%%* ArchEnemy
* BadBoss: He's cruel to his crew.
* BadassBeard: Has a gigantic, scraggly beard that sits well since he's one of the most badass characters in the series.
* BigBad: Noticeably the first main antagonist since the first film to be truly malevolent, as the {{Big Bad}}s of the last two movies were predatory animals who, while persistent, where merely acting on instinct, while both Soto and Gutt where acting on personal motives. However, while Soto cared for his pack and wanted to kill the baby because the humans wiped out most of his pack, Gutt doesn't care for anyone but himself and can be considered to be more evil.
* BearsAreBadNews: He was originally conceived as [[http://i.imgur.com/WKmYOGM.jpg a bear]] (probably a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave_bear cave bear]]) but it was decided that an ape was more versatile.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: Gigantopithecus is probably best known for its hypothesized relationship to those myths and legends. In that many think either its fossils or still extant members inspired the stories.
* TheDeterminator: He ''will'' get his revenge on Manny. Consequences be damned. Even if he has to resort to [[spoiler: attempting to kill Manny's family just to get back at him]]
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Attacked by sirens, though it's debatable if he is killed or not. And even if he did survive, he doesn't have anything left of his crew or ships, rendering him harmless and with no chance of longer survival.]]
* DressedToPlunder: Despite not wearing clothes.
* DualWielding: Is shown wield two swords that seem to be made out of jaw bones.
* EvilIsHammy: As one would expect from the only Ice Age villain ever to have a VillainSong.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Comes with the territory of being voiced by Creator/PeterDinklage.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"Aye, aye".]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: Depending on the scene and person he's talking to.
* {{Irony}}: Calls himself "The Master of the Seas", [[spoiler: but ends up getting killed by a Siren, a denizen of the seas he claims mastery over]].
* KnightOfCerebus: Downplayed, as the film remains pretty light and he doesn't drain the comedy from a scene, but Gutt is the first true antagonist of the series since Soto. He's even worse than Soto as he does what he does for greed, power, and revenge, whereas Soto wanted to avenge his fallen pack. Due to the resources he commands, he's also a much more powerful threat than Soto was.
* KillerGorilla: A gigantic, malevolent ape. Not a gorilla though, but a Gigantopithecus, a prehistoric relative of the orangutan.
* LightningBruiser: He's strong, fast and very agile. If Manny didn't have the reflexes to use his tusks to block Gutt's swords, he could have [[JustForPun gutted]] Manny a lot earlier. He's strong enough to ''force apart a huge block of ice in order to make a new ship.''
* ManiacMonkeys: He’s a Gigantopithecus, which makes him a BIG monkey (well, actually an ape. [[Literature/DiscWorld Apes aren't monkeys, and you should never get them confused.]]).
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: According to him, he earned his name by gutting his victims.
-->'''Manny''': "Captain Gutt?" [''chuckles''] Really? I have a little paunch too, but I wouldn't name myself after it.\\
'''Gutt''': [''laughs mockingly''] That's funny. You're a funny guy. But that's not how I got my name. [''brandishes claws''] ''THESE'' got me my name!
* NeverMyFault: He swears revenge against Manny for costing him his first ship and his "bounty", and later, Shira's loyalty. This is despite the fact that he attacked Manny and his group first, planning to kill them (and the ship was destroyed during their escape), and that Shira wouldn't have betrayed him if he hadn't abandoned her in the first place (not to mention he physically assaulted and demoted her for not killing Manny).
* RedBaron: The "Master of the Seas".
* {{Revenge}}: Against Manny [[spoiler: for sinking his ship and stealing his replacement one]].
-->'''Gutt''': That mammoth has taken my ship, my bounty, and now the loyalty of my crew! I will '''''destroy''''' him! And ''everything he loves!''
** Gutt later [[spoiler: beats Manny and the gang to the continent and takes Ellie & Peaches hostage]].
-->'''Manny''': Okay! Let them go!\\
'''Gutt''': (''[[EvilLaugh chuckles darkly]]'') I don't think so. You destroyed ''everything I had''! I'm just ''returning the favor''.
* SwordfishSabre: His weapon of choice is a sword made of the skull of a sawfish.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: He was probably the first ''Gigantopithecus'' in mass media (unless you count Film/KingKong, who evolved from the Gigantopithecus according to [[AllThereInTheManual the companion book]], or BigfootSasquatchAndYeti),
* SlasherSmile: His default expression.
* TalkLikeAPirate: To a fairly mild extent, but still noticeable.
* VillainousBreakdown: After Manny steals his ship, Gutt is so furious, it's quite obvious he's lost a ''HUGE'' amount of his sanity. He later [[spoiler: beats Manny and the gang to the continent and takes Ellie & Peaches hostage]], stating that Manny took everything he had from him, and the evil ape intended to do the same.
** Later during the battle when [[spoiler: Precious vanquishes his crew, only Gutt dodges them, now not caring about his crew]]. Then he [[spoiler: attempts to kill Ellie, but not before Peaches kicks him to the wall]]. Finally losing what's left of his sanity, Gutt then [[spoiler: blocks Manny's path to return to his family, just as a landmass sends both of them hundreds of feet high.]]
* VillainSong: The only main villain in the Ice Age movies to sing one, called "Master of the Seas".
* WouldHurtAChild: Utterly willing to [[spoiler: hold a dagger to poor Peaches--just to get even with her father--and would've killed her then and there had it not been for Louis]].

to:

* AnimeHair: You know how it looks BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:They end up killing Captain Gutt for our heroes]].
* EnthrallingSiren: It's in their name, though they don't do much singing.
* MasterOfIllusion: They can cast illusions to make themselves look
like he’s wearing something else. The illusion gets less stable when you take a Tricorner hat? That’s his hair.

A group of piratical animals that serve Captain Gutt, consisting of Squint, a psychotic rabbit, Raz, a tough Australian kangaroo, Flynn, a dim-witted English elephant seal, Gupta, a cowardly Indian badger, Silas, a smug blue-footed booby from France, and Dobson, a mute boar and formerly Shira.
----
* AffablyEvil: Despite being one of the villains of the movie, as well as a complete buffoon, Flynn the elephant seal is arguably the most approachable and likable member of Gutt's crew.
* AxCrazy: the whole lot of them do enjoy their job, but Squint ''really'' likes it.
* BadassCrew: Not only could they effortlessly capture Manny, Sid and Diego, but they're later seen with the ''entire herd'' of background characters hostage. Just several mammals were enough to overpower a herd of animals who dwarfed half of their own.
* BerserkButton: Squint hates being called cute.
* BigFun: Flynn, one of the film's most hilarious characters, and an appropriately obese elephant seal.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Flynn is this in spades.
* DragonAscendant: In "The Great Egg-scapade", Squint returns and becomes the BigBad of the short.
* DressedToPlunder: Several of the crew were designed to look like they're wearing clothes.
%%* KillerRabbit: Literal example in Squint.
%%* FatIdiot: Flynn is
%%* FeatheredFiend: Silas.
* FrenchJerk: Silas, due to hailing from the south of France.
* FlatCharacter: Raz, Dobson, Silas, and Gupta. They don't do much besides serve as either Gutt's muscle or the crew's pets.
%%* HairRaisingHare: Squint.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Flynn, who is frankly too stupid to really realize what's going on, and doesn't have a malicious bone in his blubbery body - if anything, he seems to have fallen in with a bad crowd.
* KnifeNut: Squint for sure, also Raz, who keeps weapons for the entire crew in her pouch.
* LightningBruiser: Besides Gutt, Dobson counts as well. He's instrumental in herding Manny and Shira into a corner by simply ramming into them.
* MadeOfIron: Given the cartoony nature of the series, Squint survives a severe squashing from the 9 ton Ellie.
* OnlyKnownByHisNickname: Raz is [[http://jakepanian.blogspot.com.br/2012/08/art-of-ice-age.html apparently]] short for Rasmussen.
* ParrotPetPosition: Silas has a habit of this, being the resident bird.
* RememberedICouldFly: Flynn needs to be reminded that he's a sea animal and can swim.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Flynn is an elephant seal, Raz is a Procoptodon (a short-faced kangaroo), and Silas is a petrel (although he has the feet of a blue-footed booby).
* ASinisterClue: Every time he fights, he can be seen using his sword with his left hand.

A fearless conniving and fun-loving rabbit underhanded flying dromaeosaur who serves as leads a "tour guide" to visitors group of Geotopia egg-thieves consisting of himself, his daughter Gertie, and gets into a relationship with Granny.son Roger. He holds an intense hatred for Buck for repeatedly thwarting his family's escapades and attempts to get revenge on him by trying to thwart the Herd's attempt at diverting the asteroid.



* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: He has dark-green fur.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Granny, although "romance" may be pushing it; she's only really into him for his looks.

AbusiveParents: Zigzaged. On one hand, Gavin frequently belittles and openly voices his contempt for his looks.son Roger for not living up to his standards and disagreeing with his plan to stop the herd from diverting the asteroid. On the other hand, he treats his daughter Gertie with respect and clearly prefers her over Roger.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Despite of being abusive parent to Roger and showing his favoritism to Gertie, Gavin loves both his children, cares about them and protects them. Fortunaly, he reconciles with his son in climax.
* BigBadEnsemble: While the asteroid itself is the primary threat to the Herd's survival, Gavin serves as the film's main antagonist for wanting to make sure they fail to make sure the asteroid hits.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Despite of being abrasive and constantly belittling to his son Roger and prefering his daughter Gertie, Gavin truly loves and cares about both of his children. Because of this, Buck convinces him to pull a HeelFaceTurn by convincing Gavin that revenge on him (Buck) is not worth jeopardizing his offspring's safety.
* FeatheredFiend: Has feathers, and quite unpleasant.
* HeelFaceTurn: He abandons his revenge scheme against Buck to help the herd divert the asteroid thanks to some persuading from Roger, Gertie, and Buck himself.
* {{Jerkass}}: Not a very pleasant individual, especially towards his son.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He does care about his kids though, which is part of the reason he does a HeelFaceTurn.
* KickTheDog: A minor one, but when Gavin and his kids arrive on the surface, he callously tells Roger that if it weren't for the fact that he inherited his mother's telescopic eyesight, he would be useless to the rest of the family.
* PapaWolf: In climax he tried to protect his children from falling meteorites.
* ParentalFavoritism: He clearly prefers and respects his daughter over his son.
* PlotIrrelevantVillain: Although he plotted to stop the herd from diverting the asteroid, he and his kids ultimately failed to do anything that hindered the herd on their journey. In fact, the herd, sans Buck, even remained completely unaware of their presence until the third act.
* RaptorAttack: Although he and his family are feathered to an extent and even have wings and a tail fan, they still aren't feathered enough. Also their ability to fly isn't exactly accurate either.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He isn't anywhere near as smart or capable as he thinks he is.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Gavin's desire to stop the herd and make sure the asteroid hits fueled by his belief that if he and his children succeed, the blast from the asteroid will effectively take out everyone on the ground while he, Gertie, and Roger fly safely overhead, thereby killing Buck and ensuring the dominance of their species.
