Ice Age characters
At one point, Scrat was only intended to star in the first eight minutes of first film. However, with more scenes of him added, he became the icon star of the Ice Age. The famous prehistoric sabre-tooth squirrel stars for each trailer and teaser announcing future Ice Age films. Although he lacks the ability to speak while the other other animal characters can, he is given plenty of his own scenes. Always in pursuit of his acorn, Scrat is tireless, and resists all the misfortunes that fall on him to get his way!
Although his quest is completely parallel to the movies, it is often linked to the characters and the story. In the first film, the trio asked for directions, but Diego gets rid of him quickly, thinking the rodent would betray them. In the second film, Scrat would even save everyone by allowing the water to drain the bowl! Upon passing out, he is sent to heaven where the acorns he pursued throughout his life are finally available! But because an Ice Age movie isn’t really an "Ice Age" movie with Scrat, Sid brings him back to life to his greatest displeasure!
In the third film, Scrat finds a love interests. A females sabre-tooth squirrel named Scratte who is equally obsessed with nuts! What then followed is a tough love that Scrat finally gave up for his one and only love: His acorn.
In the fourth film, Scrat caused a continental drift and embarks on an adventure that, once again, exceed the tolerance. However, as stubborn and obsessive as he is, he will one day succeed to get the object of his lust, no matter what gets in his way.

Manfred (a.k.a Manny) was once a grumpy and unsociable mammoth, suffering from the loss of his family who were hunted down my humans. Instead of following the migration like everyone else, he preferred instead to walk against the current and go in the opposite direction. However, despite his attitude, Manfred has a heart and does not hesitate to fight to save the live of Sid, from whom he follows the mammoth.
Upon meeting Diego, Manny did not trust Diego, but knew that to get rid of the sloth and the baby, they must be guided through the mountains by him. Brave and courageous, he did not hesitate to risk his life to save Diego, eventually inviting the sabre-tooth cat as a "member of his clan."
In the second movie, he is believed to be the last of his kind, until he managed to find Ellie, the love of his life. Now in a family once again, he will do the best to protect them. He is very attached to his clan and not afraid of anything, not even sea monsters or dinosaurs!
In third film, he and Ellie are preparing for the birth of their child, calling it by the name of the ”code”, Peaches. Very protective and attentive, and even preparing his child a playground before it comes into the world, he will prove to be not only a caring father, but also a loyal and courageous friend to his pack.

Sid is one of the main characters in the Ice Age movies. Just as Diego qualifies, he was the "glue" that allowed the formation of the trio. Awkward and blundering, he has the gift to get into the most dangerous situations and comical, but to (unlike Scrat) get by anyway.
However, despite its flaws endearing, Sid is also a character who allows others to evolve. Although it was initially abandoned by his family, Sid is appreciated by the herd, and has a huge heart despite his bad luck.
In the second film, he helps Diego to face his fear of water, and encourages Manny towards Ellie, creating a new family. He was also admired as King of Fire! Although he was eventually thrown into a volcano, certainly...
Tired of his loneliness and probably abandoning his family in the third film, Sid decides also to adopt eggs to comfort himself. Only one problem… those were dinosaur eggs!
In the fourth instalment, Sid finds his family who first appears out of nowhere, but then they disappear again... leaving her Granny! Sid will have to take care of her despite the somewhat difficult situation in which he finds himself in, being stuck on an iceberg at sea.

Diego is the leading character of the trio. Initially, the saber-tooth belonged to Soto’s pack, and had to retrieve a live baby from his leader to quench Soto’s thirst for revenge to avenge his family. Unfortunately for our favourite smilodon, the woman holding the baby did the ultimate sacrifice by jumping from the top of the waterfall to let precious offspring. The baby was then recovered by a Manfred and Sid, which they both decided to adopt. Not having much choice, joined Diego the group to guide them through the mountain.
Still, Diego was fixed on his ideas, going on Manny and Sid’s journey to return the baby to his tribe while still plotting on completing the mission he was assigned by Soto. However, throughout the journey, the sabre-toothed tiger starts reviewing reviewing his position and begins to feel guilty, focusing more on his new companions. Thus Diego finally decided to turn against his original clan to join this new pack.
This choice was a good choice because the tiger was able to learn to control his fear of the water with the help of Sid in the second movie. However, to give up hunting is dangerous for a smilodon, and Diego started worrying on what to do when Manny started a new family with Ellie. Not only that, but he had been losing his touch, because his breathing was diminished during his hunts. Leaving the group, Diego did not consider returning to these former prey he had spent so much time with. But when Sid turns out to be in danger, the tiger does not hesitate and reunites with the gang to rescue Sid! Initially very musty, Diego opens gradually as the films progress, so it will eventually fall in love in the fourth film…
Diego is known to be cynical and scathing in his lines with a deep voice, he knows how to keep calm in all circumstances, and can make the right decisions.

Buck. Short for Buck Minster, long for Bu. This weasel is a completely psychotic character that guides our heroes in the world of dinosaurs. Having cut off all contact the world of the ice age, Buck resides in the middle of the dinosaurs and learned to survive despite its conflict with Rudy, who stole his right eye. However, Buck does not wish to return to the surface as he is inseparable from Rudy, and one does not go without the other.
The majority Ice Age fans were admired by the dynamism and the madness of this new character who takes the stones for phones but can not speak to the wind. Buck is thus a kind of mixture between Indiana Jones and Schwarzenegger who can do anything, anytime!
Voice actor : Simon Pegg
