Boxer resting.

Boxer is one of the main characters of Animal Farm, and he represents the working class of the Russian Revolution, and how they worked hard for a better life.

In the film, he is recognized as the kind and hard-working horse on the farm, despite being abused and bullied by Jones. He is best friends with Benjamin, but in the film this role has been taken over mostly by Jessie. He devoted all of his life trying to build (and soon remake) the windmill, and soon caused him his death. His death triggered Jessie's mind to evacuate the animals out of the farm, and lead them to safety.

Boxer's tragic death to Napoleon is just something he can get money to buy whisky out of, making him very corrupt.

The phrase Boxer is known as a button layout in Halo 2 and Halo 3.

Contents

Advantages

The position of the button allows the player to melee during combat while still permitting the turning action. This proves effective in mid-jump battles where it is easy to be assassinated if the back is exposed due to lack of maneuverability.

Disadvantages

The main drawback this setting poses and exemplifies is that it delays the player from meleeing and beating down an opposing player immediately after dual-wielding weapons are dropped. Another issue is that since the grenade button is set to "B", it does not allow the player to aim the grenade throw very accurately.

Trivia

  • Many players use this button layout on close-quarters battles, where meleeing is a good way to get kills.
