Zeke is a jittery and excitable saber-toothed cat, who only appears in the first Ice Age film. He was a little bit crazy about killing Manfred the mammoth. He is one of the secondary antagonists of the film, and was voiced by Jack Black.
Zeke is shown as a member of a pack of cats which (before the movie takes place) suffers an attack by the humans, who end up killing half of them for using their skins as clothes.
Zeke is one of the cats, that attack the humans, so that Diego can kidnap the baby, but when he fails, the pack goes to wait for Diego in Half Peak.
As the pack waited for Diego at Half Peak, Zeke started reminiscing about the joys of mammoth flesh, much to Lenny's annoyance.
Near the end of the film, when Diego gets to Half Peak with the other animals, Zeke is the one that Diego teased by asking him if he wanted to maul something, and he is the one who made the pack go after Sid, who was wielding a fake mini-snowman with the baby's clothes.
When the pack of cats disperses, Zeke finds Sid getting the baby out of a place that he had hidden him, but the baby warns Sid by doing the "Where's the Baby?" sign with his hands and Sid manages to save the baby and trap Zeke in a small crevice. It is unknown whether he stayed trapped there and presumably perished from starvation and thirst, or was later rescued by the other pack cats.
- Zeke almost resembles Nuka from The Lion King II: Simba's Pride in appearance and personality.
