|~ Ozone to Gidget|
Ozone is a minor antagonist in Illumination's 6th animated feature film The Secret Life of Pets.
He is voiced by Steve Coogan, who played David Ershon.
Ozone first appears in an alleyway after Duke threw Max into a garbage bin as revenge of his treatment on him. Ozone appears from the bin and begins antagonizing the dogs and he steals Duke's collar. At first, Duke isn't intimidated, but when Ozone's army shows up, Duke cowardly runs away, leaving Max at the mercy of the cats who torment him and steal his collar. When the Animal Control officers show up, Ozone and his group hide and retreat.
Ozone later appears when Tiberius the hawk takes him to Gidget. He coughs up Max's collar, but he sleazily refuses to disclose anymore information, even when Tiberius threatens to throw him off the building he is on. It isn't until that Gidget slaps him repeatedly that he tells them that Max and Duke are in the sewers.
He last appears at the ending where he is in attendance at a party of a dog named Leonard, but is forced to retreat along with the other guests when Leonard's owner shows up.
- Although never stated, it is implied that he is associated with Snowball or even part of his gang since he knew Max and Duke were taken to the sewers without having the audience know how. This could possibly mean that the Alley Cats are like a minor wing (or branch of sort) to the Flushed Pets.
- It's unknown if Ozone can be considered redeemed or what exactly happened to him after Gidget terrorized him for information. He was seen at Leonard's party (which is full of domesticated animals; which he previously showed a great deal of hatred towards) and appeared to be enjoying himself. It's possible he left his gang or they kicked him out.
