Sidney "Sid" the Sloth is one of the three main protagonists of the Ice Age franchise. Unfortunately, he got flanderized since Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.

Why He Sucked

  1. Sid became nothing but a stereotypical, lazy bum.
    • He also became more of a lazy bum in the fifth film.
  2. He is even more dirty than he was in the previous three films, such as vomiting out grape jelly, wiping his face with poison ivy, and so fourth.
  3. Sid finding a mate, while a fine concept on paper, was very pointless and poorly executed; especially in the fifth film.
  4. Sid was uncareful to the point that he ate a fruit that paralyzed him without knowing it.
  5. Like Manny, Sid received even more flanderization in Ice Age 5: Collision Course and became even more idiotic and an even bigger butt-monkey than he already was.
  6. He is also destructive than he was before as well, like when he destroyed Geotopia just so he can give a diamond to Brooke.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Sid was a much more likable and funny character in the original trilogy.
  2. He gave us a few funny moments from Continental Drift such as the scene where his face gets deformed from drinking salt water and "Holy Crab"!

Trivia

  • On the official social network Ice Age pages, in an imaginary Sid's profile of a dating site, it's written that Sid is 30. Since the Herd Valley is listed as his residence, Sid "would have created the profile" between the fourth and the fifth movie. Assuming this information is true, Sid would have been only about 7-11 during the first film.
