Animal Villains Wiki

Soto is the main antagonist in the first film of the Ice Age franchise and a posthumous antagonist in the later films.

He was voiced by Goran Višnjić.

Appearence and Personality[]

He is a sabre toothed tiger with a short temper and the leader of a pack of sabre toothed tigers.

Role in the film[]

He hated humans for killing half of his pack and wanted to kill Roshan, who was rescued by Manny and Sid.

Diego followed them so he could lure them into the pack's jaws, while Soto and his pack tracked them down. However, as they made it to the destination, Diego admitted the truth as he has now grown a friendship with Manny, Sid, and Roshan. He came up with a plan to escape, as the animals fought and avoided the hungry pack. However, Soto apparently kills Diego. In the final confrontation, Manny knocks Soto into a wall and was killed when a bunch of large, sharp icicles fell on him. It was later revealed that Diego had survived, however the same could not be said about Soto.

He would be mentioned again in the fourth film of the franchise Ice Age: Continental Drift when Diego explains Shira that he decided to leave his pack and that he traded his pack for something better (a family). It's also shown that Diego is still angry at Soto for trying to kill him without any hesitation which probably cemented his decision to stay with Manny and Sid.
