|~ Zoe talking to her sports balls about the gold necklace Simon found, revealing her true colors.|
Zoe is the hidden and former main antagonist of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.
She was portrayed by Jenny Slate, who later played Dawn Bellwether in the 2016 Disney film, Zootopia.
Zoe was presumed to have been stuck on the island for eight or nine years. It was revealed to be false as she intentionally came to the island and hunted down the treasure for a decade.
Zoe first meets the six chipmunks when stumbling upon them by chance. She takes them to her tree house to stay the night. The next morning, after a dangerous hike over an old tree, Zoe takes them to a waterfall where Simon (who was altered by a spider bite) finds a cave. Immersing out of the water, Simon discovers a golden necklace and handed it to Jeanette. Upon realization, Zoe spoke to her sports balls about how she finally discovered the location of an entire treasure horde and revealed her true nature.
Before long, the Chipmunks and Chipettes learn that Zoe has taken Jeanette with her. Inside the cave, Zoe revealed that she was after the treasure on the island and forces Jeanette to reach inside and grab it for her. However, the island turns out to be a volcano and begins to erupt, derailing her plans. As everyone escapes the island-volcano, Zoe was dead set on killing Dave Seville after blaming him for his interference, but Alvin and Ian managed to talk her down and she saved Dave instead. Zoe then apologizes to Jeanette for kidnapping her and forcing her to find the treasure, and as a gift, Jeanette gives her the gold bracelet that Simon had obtained for her.
Zoe is altered by multiple spider bites which resulted her into becoming crazy, deluded, greedy, arrogant, selfish, delusional, and determined.
Zoe has a safari-like appearance.
- While Ian is the main villain in the first two films, Zoe is the main antagonist in this film because she had bigger plans than Ian.
- Zoe has a collection as sports balls (i.e., basketball, football, and baseball) that she talks to as human beings. This may be a reference to Wilson the volleyball from the 2000 film Cast Away.
