Compared to Carface who's money hungry, Red is power hungry and psychopathic. He seems to be motivated by little else than his own desires to be as wicked as possible.
Like all demonic entities, he prides pure evil, being evil and doesn't approve of any "entry level wickedness."
In addition to being a hellish feline, he also has the many characteristics of a cat, he eats rodents, hates water (proven near the end of the film during the battle between him and Charlie), thinks very low of dogs in general (especially his sidekick Carface), and wants full control over them which plays a keen role in his goal to obtain the horn.
He's very persuasive and deceiving with the acception of disguising himself as an elderly dog to manipulate his victims and also very hotheaded, acting hostile in a big way whenever his patience is tried such as when Red snapped at Carface over wanting to make money with the horn.
But power seems to excite Red as well proven when Red gets Gabriel's horn, he takes no notice of anything going on around him and when Carface says that Charlie and his friends are getting away until Red merely says "Let them."
Red is a demonic feline, with red fur (hence his name), yellow eyes, brown. claw-like fingernails, and wears a blue robe.
In his dog disguise, he looks like a St Bernard and wears a red robe, scarf, fex, and a pair of slippers. As a monster, he's gigantic, muscular, and has glowing red eyes.
Role in the film
He was a powerful cat demon who recruited Carface in his plan to use the magical Horn Of Gabriel to pull all the dogs into Hell.
To this end, he tricked Carface's old nemesis Charlie into aiding him via creating magical-collars and forcing him into a deal, under the disguise of an aged dog.
This climaxed in the demon managing to actually get the horn and he began to imprison the inhabitants of Heaven (including Annabelle) and growing into a monster of seemingly apocalyptic proportions, causing the sea itself to start to rise around the island in a massive whirlpool.
However, Charlie and his friends decide to fight back, resulting in a battle that ended with Charlie blowing the horn, reversing the evil spell. Red, who had already been weakened by the battle, was ultimately sucked back into Hell. Before vanishing, however, Red drags Carface down as well as part of their deal.
- Red's pupils disappear occasionally during the movie.
- In his disguise, Red is one of only two animal characters in the All Dogs Go to Heaven franchise to wear shoes. All the other animals are barefoot, with Chief in the TV series' episode "Charlie's Angle" as an exception.
- His red demon like form is based off of Jafar's red genie form.
- Red is very similar to Jafar. Both have magic powers, have the color red as a color motif, both disguise themselves as elderly characters as Jafar disguises himself as an old man and Red disguises himself as an elderly dog in order to trick the protagonist, both have greedy henchmen (Jafar, Abis Mal and Red, Carface who said that when they got the Horn of Gabriel they could open any casino or bank safe in the world), both are hegemonic and megalomaniacal and in the climax both turn into giant monsters (Jafar, a giant cobra, and a giant red genie, and Red, a demonic cat like form.
- Red, though standing in as the All Dogs' satanic equivalent, isn't Satan himself, as "his boss" is loosely referenced after his defeat, implying he may be a pet or otherwise a servant.
- He's the only All Dogs Go to Heaven villain to have a stereotypical villain personality. The other villains, Carface and Belladonna act either for revenge or their own personal gain.
- Red's design appears similar to the hellhound's design from the first All Dogs Go to Heaven film.
