―Flash Slothmore

Flash Slothmore[2] is a male three-toed sloth and a supporting character in Zootopia. He works at the DMV.

Official Bio

"[Flash is] the fastest sloth working at the DMV—the Department of Mammal Vehicles."

Background

Not much is currently known about Flash's background, but it is shown he befriended Nick Wilde sometime prior to the events of the film. He is shown to have a liking for jokes, which Nick appears to enjoy to use to his advantage to annoy other animals.

Also prior to the film, Flash got employed at the Department of Mammal Vehicles, which is his current occupation.

Personality

Despite his slowness, Flash is a friendly sloth. He is polite to Judy and speaks quite professionally, which makes him sound more intelligent than he looks. Flash seems to be well acquainted with Nick Wilde and speaks to him in his casual, friendly way.

He willingly helps Judy, but can be easily distracted, as seen when Nick interrupts Flash's work to tell him a joke. Flash enjoys jokes, and finds them hilarious. He even goes so far as to retell them to his co-worker, Priscilla.

Role in the Film

Flash "helps" Nick and Judy

When Nick brings Judy to the DMV, Nick wastes her time and annoys her by telling Flash a joke, who then later tells to his co-worker after taking a while to react.

At the end of the film, he is pulled over by Judy and Nick, in which he is fined for speeding.

He is last seen slow dancing with Priscilla at Gazelle's concert.

Role in Literature

Quick As A Flash!

The comic begins with Flash watching a hyena telling Priscilla a joke. As the hyena reaches the door and waves to Priscilla, Kameela chastises Flash for being so slow and urges him to ask Priscilla out on a date. Flash approaches Priscilla and starts to ask her to a movie, but he is not quick enough and the hyena returns. Then he asks Priscilla to a movie instead, to which she agrees. Priscilla asks Flash what he was going to say, but he is too dumbstruck to reply, and Kameela sighs that Flash is too slow to catch even another sloth.
