The Fossas (also called "Foosas") are medium-sized cat-like creatures and rarely speak, instead usually growling and yelping. One fossa named Sparky said "Who? Me?"

They are shown to terrorize the lemurs and attempt to eat them. According to Julien, they are a 'bad omen' which means, "they're always annoying us by trespassing, interrupting our parties, and ripping our limbs off." When they do speak, they put "fossa" in front of every word: ex. "Fossa hungry, fossa eat." They are terrified of Alex due to him being a lion and being much more physically powerful and intimidating. In the end, thanks to a setup performed by his friends and the penguins, Alex made sure that the fossas never bothered the lemurs ever again.

They were voiced by Tom McGrath, and Danny McBride and Jennifer Tilly and and Alec Baldwin and Paul Winchell and Kevin McDonald and Frank Oz and Rodger Bumpass and Joan Cusack and Wanda Sykes and Dan Castellaneta and Wallace Shawn and Kath Soucie and John Goodman and Kevin Michael Richardson and Tress MacNeille and Bill Fagerbakke and Gary Anthony Williams and John Ratzenberger and Jim Henson and David Ogden Stiers and Sterling Holloway and John Fiedler and Peter Cullen and Eric Darnell, Fred Tatasciore. and appeared in the first Madagascar movie and the All Hail King Julien TV series.

Despite being the main antagonists, their role in the film is small. The fossas first appeared when they crashed King Julien's rave and attempted to eat Mort, but when the lion named Alex noticed a spider on his back, he lets out a loud scream, causing the fossas to think he is roaring at them and retreat in terror.

The next morning, during Julien's party with Alex and his friends, the fossas prepare to kill the lemurs, but Alex roars loudly, causing the fossas to flee once again.

The fossas made a short appearance during the "What a Wonderful World" scene, where they watched a regretful Alex walk through their territory after his predatory instincts forced him to attack his friends, in which they started smiling.

After the boat docks on Madagascar, Marty convinced Alex to go on the ship with them, But the fossas attack and pursue him, Melman, Gloria and the chimpanzees, Mason and Phil. Skipper and his fellow penguins came to the zoo animals aid, and Alex showed up and clobbered the fossas and scared them away once again. After that, the fossas never bothered the lemurs, Alex, and his friends anymore.
