|~ The Beast|
The Beast is the main antagonist of Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild. She is a ruthless and sadistic cougar who resides in a cave on the other side of the forest on Lake Garland and terrorized the animals into bringing her food every night as part of a tribute to herself.
The Beast is a cougar who lives in the woods and all she wants to do is kill all of the animals if they do not bring her enough food.
Towards the beginning of the film, Reeko shows up without any tribute and brings his way out with a promise of bringing double his quota next time. When the time came and he has nothing to show for it, he cons Snowbell into going to fill his debt. When the Beast notices Snowbell's thick, luxurious fur, she decides to make a rug out of him so she would have something warm to lie on during the winter. She only refrains from eating him when he suggests that she had fatten him up first to have a bigger rug.
When Stuart learns that the Beast has taken Snowbell prisoner, he sets out to rescue him. Later, with the help of Reeko and the other forest animals, he succeeds in trapping her, whereupon she is captured and sent to a zoo in a helicopter. She is likely ill-received there, as the pilot who takes her away notes that they would have to tranquilize her and shave off her fur to get rid of Reeko's spray.
- Although she is a cougar, her vocal sound effects are a mixture of big cats such as lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs and jaguars.
- Unlike the first two Stuart Little villains, Smokey and Falcon, as they are male, the Beast is the first (and so far only) female villain in the franchise, and has no minion of her own. Otherwise, Monty would have become one to her after Smokey possibly died.
