Doug is the secondary antagonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film Zootopia. He is an emotionless ram chemist and sniper who works for Bellwether.

Background

Personality

Doug is portrayed as stony, calm, emotionless, and exceptionally cold. He almost never shows any facial expression beyond a cold and flat face, and rarely raises his voice, usually speaking in a low, flat, emotionless voice. According to his employee Duke Weaselton, he is "the exact opposite of friendly", implying that he is hostile toward his allies and enemies alike. Although this side of his personality is not much further explored, it can be seen with his attitude toward his ram associates Woolter and Jesse when they deliver a latte to him, coldly warning them that the latte had "better have the extra foam this time", and his attitude toward Nick Wilde, whom he aggressively warns to "Watch where you're going!" after he almost runs him over.

Although Doug is very competent and skilled in his chemical expertise and marksmanship, he does not appear to have any opinion about his duties, nor take them very seriously, as when Judy shoved him out of his lab-converted subway car, he merely sat idly and drank his latte while Woolter and Jesse pursued the train. This was also shown when he shrugged off Bellwether's doubts that he was capable of sniping a cheetah despite their speed, casually, but confidently declaring that he could do so.

Physical appearance

Doug is a Merino ram with puffy beige wool all around his head. Like most sheep, he has a long, skinny head with a large, white nose and muzzle, and yellow eyes with black rectangular pupils with rounded corners. He normally wears a purple collared down shirt, but wears a yellow hazard jacket when working in his lab.

Role in the film

Doug first appears driving a truck and almost running over Nick Wilde with his truck and yells at him "Watch where you're going, fox!"

He later appears during a press conference disguised as a reporter, asking ZPD officer Judy Hopps if predators are the only animals who have turned savage, thus starting a city-wide panic against predators by the prey citizens.

After Judy and Nick realize that mind-altering flowers called "night howlers" are the cause of multiple predator mammals going savage in Zootopia, they consult Duke Weaselton, who stole a bunch of night howler buds from a store on Judy's second day at work. When he refuses to cooperate, they take him to Tundratown's most feared crime boss, Mr. Big, to interrogate him. Over the fear of getting iced, he tells Judy and Nick that he wanted to give the night howlers to a ram named Doug in exchange for something he can't refuse - money. He tells the duo about his whereabouts, and also warns them that Doug is the complete opposite of friendly: he's unfriendly.

Judy and Nick find Doug's secret base: an old train car in an abandoned subway station. They enter the car, and discover it has been converted into a laboratory, compete with a small night howler farm. As they investigate, Doug suddenly enters, forcing them to hide. Wearing protective clothing, Doug takes a pot of night howlers and dumps it all into a vat. After a turn of the dial, the night howlers are liquefied and piped to the other side of the room, where the liquid gets sent through a chemistry set. With a few tweaks and modifications, the now enhanced night howler toxin is placed within a small glass paintball-like pellet, which is then loaded into a dart gun.

Once he's done, Doug gets a phone call. The caller tells him of his next target: a cheetah in Sahara Square. During the conversation, Doug assures the mysterious caller's doubts that he can hit the cheetah despite their speed by revealing that he "hit a tiny little otter through the open window of a moving car". These words and the sight of photos of all the "savaged" predators on Doug's transit map, make Judy realize that the reason why Mr. Otterton, Mr. Manchas, and all the other predators went savage is because Doug had secretly shot them with the night howler darts, completely unnoticed. When Doug opens the door of the lab to let in his two ram assistants, Woolter and Jesse, Judy shoves Doug out of the car, and successfully operates the subway car so that she and Nick can get this evidence to the ZPD. As he finished the remains of his latte, Woolter and Jesse chase after the car.

Doug is not seen again for the remainder of the film. but it's neither that Woolter and Jesse themselves gets ejected from the car during their fight with Judy and Nick. However, it can be assumed that after Bellwether's plot was ruined the the rams.

However, it is completely unknown what happened to Doug, but it's possible that he was either left in the subway station or found and arrested for her crimes by the ZPD alongside his cohorts.

Trivia

  • Doug's laboratory setup and use of safety equipment (a gas mask and yellow hazard jacket) when weaponizing the Night howlers, as well as a line referring to two assistants named Woolter and Jesse, are references to the crime-thriller drama series Breaking Bad.
  • Doug's last name, Ramses, is a reference to two things; a ram, which is the name of a male sheep, which is his species, and the Egyptian king Pharaoh Ramses.
  • In Bellwether's office, there was a post-it sticky note on her desk with Doug's name and phone number on it; this foreshadows her connection with the night howlers.
    • On the sticky note, his phone number is 805-555-0127.
  • In The Art of Zootopia, his original name was "Wooly" before being altered. He also originally carried a Morning Star (a spiked ball on a chain) around with him.
