This article is about the character. You may be looking for the movie.

Dogcopter is the protagonist from the fictional book series of the same name adapted in a successful film franchise. His first appearance was in the episode, "Lion 2: The Movie" in a trailer for Dogcopter 3.


Dogcopter is a gray Dachshund dog with a helicopter propeller attached to his back. In "Lion 3: Straight to Video", "Chille Tid", and "Kiki's Pizza Delivery Service", Steven sees Dogcopter in his dreams but colored orange-brown instead of gray. In "Same Old World", Dogcopter appears on an advertisement board in Empire City. In "Growing Pains", Dogcopter proposes to his partner Drew on one of their missions in the trailer for Dogcopter 6: Til Death Do Us Bark: I Now Pronounce You Man and Woof.


Dogcopter is a cunning and heroic protagonist with a passion for explosives. He is very heroic and valiant, dying defending the world in Dogcopter 4.


Dogcopter is shown to fly using his propeller and shoot missiles out of his rear end. Because he's actually part cat, revealed in Dogcopter 4, Dogcopter comes back to life after death due to the myth of cats having nine lives.

He is seen on a poster very briefly within the episode.

Drew the Dog

Snow Day 035

By the time of the Steven Universe Future episode "Snow Day", Dogcopter is shown to have a spin-off called Pupcopter's Sky-High Adventure. The spin-off stars a puppy with a blue body, a cream-colored head and legs, brown ears, tail, and nose, and a helicopter propeller on his back like the original Dogcopter. Given Steven's assertion that "Pupcopter is for six-year-olds", the spin-off appears to be geared towards a younger audience than the original.


  • Dogcopter appears on a poster seen in "Lars and the Cool Kids", as well as a billboard seen in "Same Old World".
  • Using her shape-shifting powers, Amethyst has shapeshifted into Dogcopter along with different alterations, such as a form with a radio as a head complete with its own music.
  • Connie is an avid fan of the Dogcopter franchise along with Steven.
  • Ronaldo Fryman states that the last book of the Dogcopter book series has over 900 pages.[1]
  • Dogcopter bears some resemblance to a creature Coconut Fred creates in the episode "Master of Disaster" of the infamous Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island cartoon.
  • Dogcopter is the third confirmed gay character, after Harold Smiley and Quentin Frowney.
