During Ice Age: The Meltdown, a Elk was seen riding down a slide and fell into a whirlpool. Not noticing the Elk, a Beaver slides down and his rear lands on the Elk's sharp antlers and shouts out in pain.
Once Manny comes down from the dam and sees the ice melting and he tells everyone about it, but one Elk was sceptical about his theroy stating:
- "Wait a minute your the one who said there wasn't going to be a flood, why should we listen to you?"
- ―Elk to Manny[src]
When Manny protested against the Elk's statement everyone else laughs at him for thinking there was going to be a flood, even with the advice of The Lone Gunslinger, everyone still thought otherwise and they head towards The Boat.
Other Elk are seen during Ice Age: The Meltdown as background characters.
