    Manfred "Manny" the Mammoth is one of the three main protagonists of the Ice Age franchise. Sadly, he got flanderized along with Sid in the fourth film, Continential Drift, but redeemed himself in The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild.

    Bad Qualities

    1. Manny became nothing but a stereotypical over-caring father.
      • This problem especially came with his daughter, Peaches.
    2. In the fourth movie, he embarrasses Peaches in front of the other teens, and when she walks away upset, all he does is rudely groan about it.
    3. He didn't even realize that Peaches landing on Ethan was a complete accident. All that he did was sneak up behind Peaches and ground her without a second thought.
    4. He tried to compare Sid to Peaches at one point, which is wrong to do because that can affect a child's growth, especially at a teenager's age because that's the point when they are trying to establish their own identity which what made him a pedophile.
    5. Manny also provided way too many fart jokes in those films as well.
    6. He can't even deal with his teenage daughter well, as mentioned above.
    7. Some of his dialogue is laughable or cheesy, the most infamous being in the fifth film: "Ooh. I know! We destroyed the relationship, right? That we never have to let her go and she'll just stay our little girl FOREVER!" followed by an attempt at an evil and mean-spirited laugh.
    8. He even mocks Julian in the fifth film.
    9. He even thought of breaking up Julian and Peaches at one point!
    10. When Peaches was thinking of a way to escape the electricity in the fifth movie, he got mad at Julian for Peaches trying to defend herself.
    11. When Peaches is rightfully angry, he says that he's only trying to "protect" her, which is wrong since when she was about to go to the falls, she wasn't even alone and none of the kids are that bad in the movie, so he's just being petty.
    12. His worst moment was when he hit Julian with a puck which made him sink into the water all because he was jealous of him, therefore, Manny almost kills him.
    13. He excluded Julian while he, Ellie, and Peaches were talking.
    14. Manny's character makes no sense in the fifth movie since he's already accepted his daughter's Independence in the fourth movie.
      • Not to mention the entire movie could've been a short film and nothing could have changed.

    Good Qualities

    1. Manny was a much more likable character in the first three movies and the Christmas and Easter specials, and he massively redeemed himself in The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild returning to his original personality, although unfortunately, we can't say the same for Sid. Despite his flanderization, many people still like him and have his original personality for the most part in these movies.
      • He can also be pretty tolerable in these movies despite his unlikablity.
    2. At the end of the day, Manny is still willing to do the right thing and protect his family.
      • Plus, Manny almost losing his family to the continental drift (and later the pirates) and having to fight to not lose them is a great concept, especially after he lost his previous wife and child, it could have been very interesting to see how far he is willing to go to not lose his new family as well, even though it was poorly executed.
    3. The Ice Age franchise would not be as good as it is without him
    4. Ray Romano still did a great job voicing him, and Sean Kenin Elias-Reyes, his new voice actor, sounds pretty similar to Ray Romano like all the characters of the sixth film except Sid.
    5. To be fair, it is understandable why he is so overprotective towards Peaches, as he just wants to protect her from having the same fate as his previous son, which was sadly a missed opportunity for him to explain his tragic past to her.
    6. He sometimes has smart moments in those movies and having his original personality like strategizing with the hyraxes to steal the pirates’ ship by tricking them, and in turn frees the hyraxes from slavery, and it works great.
    7. His fight with Captain Gutt throughout the film is nothing short of amazing.
    8. Even though he wasn't being friendly to Julian, he regrets it after he accidentally hit him with a puck. Manny also redeems himself to Julian by helping him push the giant crystal into the volcano and the former tells the latter that he takes back all the bad things he said to him.
