Joseph Stalin
The pig who challenges Napoleon for control of Animal Farm after the rebellion. Snowball intelligent,passionate,eloquent, and less subtle and deviousthan his counterpart, Napoleon. Snowball seems to win the loyalty of the other animals and cement his power.
The cart-horse whose incredible strength, dedication, and loyalty play a key role in the early prosperity of Animal Farm and the later completion of the windmill. Quick to help, but rather slow witted, Boxer shows much devotion to Animal Farm's ideals but has little ability to think about them independently. He naively trusts the pigs to make all his decisions for him. His two mottos are, "I will work harder." and, "Napoleon is always right."
The pig that spreads propaganda among the other animals. Squealer justifies the pigs' monopolizationof resources and spreads false statisticspointing to the farm's success. Orwell uses Squealer to explore the ways in which those in power often use rhetoric and language to twist the truth and gain mantain social and political control.
Old Major
The prize winning boar whose vision of a socialist utopia serves as the inspiration for the rebellion. 3 days after describing the vision and teaching the song "beasts of England" Major dies, leaving Snowball and Napolean to struggle for control of his legacy.

Moses

Benjamin

Muriel
The white goat who reads the 7 commandments to Clover whenever Clover suspects the pigs of violating their prohibitions.
