Quote "Bad kitty!"

Nana is a minor antagonist in Madagascar and the secondary antagonist in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. She is an old woman who always beats Alex up with her handbag, which she loves to do.


"You're a bad kitty!"

In Madagascar, Nana encounters Alex in the Grand Central Station, where she assaults him and calls him "a bad kitty (including Melman) she is seen when the policeman arrived he assaults Alex again and was arrested

She is also seen during the end credits dancing the song I'd like to Move it

In Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

"Bad kitty!"
―Nana carrying her rifle

In Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Nana has a larger role. She becomes the leader of an army of tourists. She physically assaults Alex again, and wins, although Alex puts up much more of a fight this time. At the end of the film, Alex gives Makunga Nana's handbag. When Nana sees Makunga holding it, she starts physically assaulting him before taking him away.


Nana seems to be incredibly resistant to injury as she was able to have a short fight with Alex right after being tugged out of the back of a speeding tour jeep (as well as being thrown out of it a second time by the penguins, who reversed over her in the jeep after noticing that she didn't die). But despite this evident resilience, Nana is still portrayed as a "little old lady".


Nana has a waddling gait and is knocked onto her back when firing a rifle.


Nana is short and a little fat.
