Tod is the main protagonist of The Fox and the Hound and it's midquel and the former of the title characters. He is a red fox, who starts out young, but ages throughout the movie. He starts out as best friends with a hunting dog named Copper. However, due to these two animals being enemies by nature, they are enemies as adults, when Copper tries to kill Tod, despite Tod trying to be friendly towards Copper. At the end, after Tod saves Copper's life, the two become friends again. Tod also falls in love with a fox named Vixey.
Tod is voiced by both Keith Coogan and Jonah Bobo as a kit (the latter voiced him in the midquel) and Mickey Rooney as a 18 year old young adult.
