The Lone Gunslinger in Ice Age: The Meltdown

The Lone Gunslinger is the secondary antagonist of Ice Age: The Meltdown. He was voiced by Will Arnett.

The Gunslinger acts as the voice that warns the other animals of the dangers coming soon due to the valley where they reside flooding up with water. The Lone Gunslinger only warns them of the danger and little else, rather hoping that one or two of the animals leaving will die, furnishing food for he and the other vultures which he is presumably family and friends with.

As he watches all of the creatures in the valley leave to safety, he makes sarcastic remarks with his friends about it, and this escalades to the point of singing a musical number on how much they plotted to eat the other animals.

He and the other vultures sang the altered version of Food Glorious Food. This song can be herd on the Ice Age 2 scores album. The Lone Gunslinger was last shown flying over the "boat" full of escaping animals and making snide remarks. "Do not leave your children unattended. All unattended children will be eaten."

In the storybook version, he and his fellow vultures were shown to have ended up feasting on Cretaceous and Maelstrom.

The Gunslinger also is usually seen with another, higher voiced vulture. Because of his/her voice, it is unsure whether he/she is his wife/girlfriend, or his best friend.
