Reynard Chopsnout was a fox pirate and a villain in the Redwall book The Legend of Luke. Chopsnout was in charge of a ship, and he had loads of incompetent vermin under his command. Reynard Chopsnout was taking on water, and had a damaged sail, so he chose to scuttle his ship and plunder everyone on the shore and take provisions. Reynard Chopsnout was being teased by his crew because of his fake nose which he had lost in battle and replaced with a wooden nose. Reynard sulked that if they wanted to be in charge so much they could and stomped off to his cabin. He then got more optimistic when his bosun told him of victims onshore. He attacked but had the ill fortune to meet Luke the Warrrior and his mice who killed Chopsnout in brief combat.
