Quote "Leave the mammoth alone."

Diego is a sabre toothed tiger and one of the main characters in the Ice Age franchise. He is one of Manny's best friends and one of Peaches' adoptive uncles. He becomes Shira's lover or husband in Ice Age: Continental Drift.

In the first movie, he was advertised as the main antagonist, but this was a misinformation campaign to hide the true main villain.


Before meeting the Herd, Diego was a hardened, aggressive, belligerent, ferocious, brutal, wild, vengeful and ruthless saber-toothed cat.
