The crow has the ability to speak. His plumage is in bad shape, as he tend to get hit by the witch and her animated broom, who find him too talkative. When Merida presents herself at the witch's cottage, she soons notices the crow standing immobile. The witch says the he only is a stuffed animal, but the crow betrays himself by starting to talk to Merida.
The crow makes a post-credits appearance, asking a stunned guard of the DunBroch castle to sign the delivery of all the bear carvings Merida bought earlier from the witch.
- "Sign! I haven't got all day!"
