!!The television series

[[folder:Red Claw - ''TyrannosaurusRex'']]
An uncommonly powerful Tyrannosaurus who's terrorizing the mysterious beyond and attempts to attack the gang on their adventures. It's because of him that Ruby and Chomper were forced to leave their families and seek refuge in the Great Valley.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Pete Sepenuk
----
* BigBad: Of the TV Series.
* TheDreaded: He's so feared in the Mysterious Beyond that Chomper's parents-- two capable sharpteeth who were able to defeat the vicious Plated Sharptooth-- sent their only son to the Great Valley to be safe from him.
* {{Expy}}: Of the original Sharptooth. Just like the original sharptooth, Red Claw causes such widespread fear that even other sharpteeth try to keep away from him. Also telling is his one discolored eye, likely a reference to the original sharptooth getting stabbed in the eye with a thorn.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* InformedAbility: He's said to be one of the biggest, baddest Sharptooth of all time, but he's constantly defeated by a group of children...though said children have a long record of beating Sharptooth. That said, he's never shown to be nearly as vicious as the original sharptooth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Screech and Thud - ''Utahraptor'']]
Two fast biters who work in tandem with Red Claw to capture prey.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Pete Sepenuk (Screech)\\
Creator/RobPaulsen (Thud)
----
* EvilIsDumb
* {{Evil Minions}}
* MakesUsEven: Not long after Chomper helps free him from a pile of rocks, Thud finds him and the rest of the gang trapped inside a small cave near a canyon wall. Instead of alerting Screech and Red Claw, he leads them in the opposite direction of where the kids are hiding.
* RaptorAttack: Besides lacking feathers, they have two fingers instead of three.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Rhett - ''Apatosaurus'']]
A compulsive liar who dazzles Ali with fake stories about his past bravery. He appears in the TV episode ''The Brave Longneck Scheme''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/ElizabethDaily
----
* BreakTheHaughty: Brags that sharpteeth fear him...until he has to deal with an actual one. And said actual sharptooth isn't even bigger than him.
* DirtyCoward: The exact instant he's faced with a real sharptooth, he turns tail and runs. What makes this different from the other characters is that this sharptooth was about a tenth his size.
* MilesGloriosus: He brags about outlandish feats of strength and bravery to impress people. Littlefoot and Cera aren't fooled by Rhett's stories, but Ali is.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Milo, Lydia, and Plower - ''Ceratogaulus'']]
Three mammals that live in the caves underneath the Great Valley. Appear in ''Stranger from the Mysterious Above''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/RobPaulsen (Milo)\\
Anndi [=McAfee=] (Lydia)\\
Meghan Strange (Plower)
----
* AnachronismStew: ''Ceratogaulus'' or horned gophers lived from the Milocene to the Pleistocene, ''after'' the dinosaurs became extinct.
* NayTheist: Plower was initially skeptical that Spike was "The Big Wise One", but becomes convinced when Spike inadvertently defeats the Great Hideous Beast.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Probably the first time you see horned gophers in a cartoon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Great Hideous Beast - ''Microceratus'']]
A creature that terrorizes the denizens of the caves underneath the Great Valley. Appears in ''Stranger from the Mysterious Above''

* KillerRabbit: Subverted. Due to his tiny size he can barely pose a threat to Spike, who defeats him and traps him in a rock pile by mere accident.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dara - ''Diplodocus'']]
A kindly old female longneck who travels with Doc. She appears in the TV episode ''The Lone Dinosaur Returns''

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Susan Blu
----
* LoveInterest: For Doc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Scuttle - Crustacean]]
An obstinate crab with the ability to speak the leaf-eater language. Appears in the TV episode ''March of the Sand Creepers''

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson
----
* {{Expy}}: A greedy, confrontational crab with long eyestalks, a pirate accent, a penchant for telling stories, and a chortling laugh? [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants All he's missing is a burger-joint.]]
* {{Jerkass}}
* {{Omniglot}}: He's apparently the only crab capable of communicating with dinosaurs.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Because Scuttle is the only person capable of communicating with the [[CallARabbitASmeerp sand creepers]] that have infested the Great Valley, the gang can't afford to refuse his requests. But as scuttle keeps asking for more favors, the gang's patience rapidly wanes-- particularly Cera.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Crunch - Crustacean]]
A yellow crab that attacks Spike. Appears in ''March of the Sand Creepers''

* ArchEnemy: To Spike, despite Ducky thinking otherwise. Crunch keeps snapping painfully onto Spike's nose whenever the oppertunity presents itself. Spike eventually gets so irritated that he chases Crunch out of the valley.
* {{Jerkass}}
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Swooper - ''Harpactognathus'']]
A blind old flier who's lived for years in a cave at Black Rock. He eventually settles in the Great Valley after being guided there by Petrie and Guido. Appears in ''The Hermit of Black Rock''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/JessHarnell
----
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: All those years of living as a hermit (and possibly as well as his blindness) have caused him to become acquainted with some cave formations, even giving them names. This is even lampshaded by Guido.
* CoolOldGuy
* PteroSoarer
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Skip - Mammal]]

* HeliumSpeech: And he resembles a chipmunk to boot.

[[folder:Tickles - Mammal]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tickles.jpg]]
The first Mammal to have any significance in a series about Dinosaurs, Tickles is a small rodent found by Spike in the Valley of the Mists in the gang's search for the night flowers. Taking a liking to the gang, he joins them on their travels around the valley until they decided to leave back for the great valley, at which point they parted company. He's probably still in the Land of Mists.

Appears only in film four.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/FrankWelker



* ButNowIMustGo: Chooses not to return to the great valley with the dinosaurs, presumably because his main family was still in the valley of mists.
* CheerfulChild: Has a perpetual smile, and doesn't seem to be any more mature then the other dinosaurs. Still counts as VagueAge, though.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: Since he can't talk normally, Ducky named him Tickles since he's the only one with fun hair on his body.
* OddFriendship: Even though they're only together for a little while, he and Spike seem to hit it off pretty well with each other.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: While normally seen rolling rocks only a little bigger than himself, when he can pick up Dil's tail and drag it around without much difficulty, that's more of a surprise given he's smaller than ducky.
* TheUnintelligible: Speaks only in squeaks, though the others seem to understand him fine.

Appears only in film five.

Christina Pickles
----
* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Her portrayal has.... several problems, the least of which being a shark fin being on her head for ''no reason''. In this movie she is essentially just a sauropod with flippers. Plesiosaurs were only very distantly related to dinosaurs at all, much less longnecks. She's also improbably huge.
* TheCameo: She may or may not be one of the Elasmosaurs that swim by in the beginning of the ninth film.
* HorseOfADifferentColor: Her main contribution to the film is giving Littlefoot & Co back to the mainland
* NiceGirl
* StockNessMonster: Her neck is in the same pose as the classic picture
* VegetarianCarnivore: Plesiosaurs were carnivorous. We never see Elsie eat, but she has noticeably flat teeth, and appears to be just an aquatic version of Littlefoot's grandparents.
** Although an aquatic animal could just as well use flat teeth to crush the shells of shellfish. Granted, this is far from accurate too.

[[folder:Plated Sharptooth - ''Giganotosaurus'']]
[[quoteright:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/platedsharptooth_1111.png]]
An unnamed, vicious Giganotosaurus living on the Mysterious Island. He acts as the main antagonist of the fifth film. He's drowned---we assume---after being pushed off a cliff into the ocean, similar to a certain other Sharptooth we've seen before.

Appears only in film five.
----
* {{Badass}}
* BigBad: Of the last act of ''Mysterious Island''.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Sharpteeth, particularly unnamed ones, are generally portrayed as incompetent villains, but the Plated Sharptooth harkens more to the vicious, relentless threat of the original Sharptooth.
** He holds the distinction of being the only character other than the first Sharptooth to ever draw visible blood on screen.[[http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/m596/FlipperBoidSkua/Blood.jpg He slashes Chomper's father's nose with his claws]], and then slashes his mother's leg with his toes. And no, it didn't get edited out this time.
* {{Determinator}}: Most sharpteeth in the series will run in fear the moment that adult ''flateeth'' make the scene. The Plated Sharptooth was perfectly willing to stand and fight two other adult sharpteeth ''at the same time''.
** He does have one LighterAndSofter moment where he accidentally bites his own tail, tearing up as he does so.
* DisneyVillainDeath
* ImplacableMan: While not quite as unstoppable as the sharptooth of the first film, he's displayed unusual persistance by jumping over chasms and fighting off other sharpteeth in an attempt to get at the heroes.
* KnightOfCerebus: Calls back more to the original Sharptooth in terms of sheer viciousness. Aside from one aforementioned comedy moment, the Plated Sharptooth was ''much'' more serious than others of its kin.
* NoNameGiven: The movie never gives him a name, but the credits refer to him as 'The Plated Sharptooth'.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes are drawn in an unusually animalistic manner, with less expression, more prominently slitted pupils, and dark marks under his eyes. These mark him out as an unusually dangerous sharptooth.
* TakingYouWithMe: Similar to how the original sharptooth nearly dragged Petrie to the water with him when he falls, the Plated Sharptooth knocks Chomper off a cliff and into the ocean along with him.

* FantasticRacism: When he shows up in the series, he refuses to accept Chomper might be a good guy due to him being a Sharptooth. However, he ultimately learns the error of his ways when the little guy helps save his 'lady friend'.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A thin, jagged one over the right side of his face.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the TV series, at least. In his first appearance, he's more of a silent, enigmatic wanderer whose moralities-- outside of fighting sharpteeth-- are unknown.
* TheJinx: The events of the sixth film cause the Great Valley residents to pin the blame on his arrival to the valley as a harbinger of bad luck. While he doesn't particularly seem to care about the negative reputation he has, it is a stigma that's stuck with him all the way up to his reappearance in the TV series.
* RedBaron: The Lone Dinosaur
* TheStoic: It's hard to tell what he feels half the time. Even in a clear moment of displeasure, like when he finds out about Littlefoot's friendship with Chomper, he seems self-restrained in his emotions.
* TagAlongKid: Doc seems to see Littlefoot as this. While he doesn't discourage Littlefoot from trying to imitate him and does seem to genuinely like him, he usually has other things on his mind than trying to impress a local longneck boy.
* WartsAndAll: Doc fits this trope from the time he condemns Littlefoot's friendship with Chomper until the time he repents for it.

* CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Despite how annoyed Cera often is with them, she's legitimately distraught when she thinks something bad has happened to them.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: They disappear after ''Saurus Rock''. Presumably, they went back to live with their parents.
* CousinOliver: Seemingly introduced as this. Fortunately, they quickly disapear after their first appearence.

An ambitious, cunning Pterosaur who takes an interest in the story of the Stone of Cold Fire. He's Petrie's maternal uncle, and an antagonist for much of the seventh film.

* AntiVillain: Not really evil per se, but certainly selfish and very reckless. While he has put people in danger before, he never means to do so and wishes no harm on anyone.
* TheAtoner: Eventually.
* BigBad: Of ''Stone of Cold Fire'', [[HeelFaceTurn though he doesn't stay that way]].
* CoolUncle: Petrie thinks he is.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
-->'''Rinkus''': Why not simply ask the longneck to tell us where [the stone of cold fire] is! (''makes a slashing motion over his neck'') Or else (''EvilLaugh before being smacked in the face by Pterano'')

-->'''Rinkus''': N-n-n-n-no! Of course not!
* DirtyCoward: Accused of being one, after his disastrous leadership.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He has a sister and a couple nieces and nephews, one who ''adores'' him. However, his sister is less than friendly when he shows up.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He may be arrogant and somewhat nefarious, but he draws the line at [[WouldNotHurtAChild harming children]]. When he first mentions it, it sounds like PragmaticVillainy, but later he expresses genuine sorrow when Ducky appears to have fallen to her death and genuine horror when Sierra declares that the minute they become leaders he's going to throw the kids to the sharpteeth. Lampshaded by his sister, who states that while he's done many bad things, she knows he would never let Rinkus and Sierra harm Ducky.
* EvilBrit
* EvilUncle : But he has a HeelFaceTurn.
* TheExile: At the end of ''Stone of Cold Fire'', he's exiled from the Great Valley for several years thanks to his past actions and kidnapping Ducky. However, since he helped save the children, his sentence was lessened significantly.
* ItsAllAboutMe: His theme song, "Very Important Creature" highlights this. He's motivated by a ''big'' superiority complex.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* KnightOfCerebus: Thanks to his having gotten a large number of the herd killed, he brings a much more personal threat to the adults of the Great Valley than any villain before him.
* LargeHam: Comes with the territory of being played by Michael York.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He has this response ''a lot''. Most notable is the one listed directly below.
* MyGreatestFailure: Pterano had once unintentionally led a group of followers into a fast biter (raptor), ambush, where everyone but himself was killed. He seems very haunted by this event.
* NeverMyFault: His FatalFlaw.
* {{Pride}}: He has a very overinflated opinion of his leadership abilities.
* PteroSoarer: Unlike his nephew, he was unlucky to be a sequel character, and hence whatever accuracy the original movie's pterosaurs had was not carried on.
* VillainSong: 'Very Important Creature', another contender for the best villain song of the series, mainly because rather than being about how nasty and vicious he is, this song is simply about how brave and strong he thinks he is, and how egotistical everyone else thinks he is.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He legitimately believes himself to be a good leader and thinks that everyone would be better off with him as such.

* BrainsAndBrawn: [[ObfuscatingStupidity Rinkus]] is the brains and [[MurderIsTheBestSolution Sierra]] is the brawn.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Rinkus points out to Sierra that it would be inconvenient to ''kill'' Pterano and instead opts to just tolerate him long enough to get power from the Stone of Cold Fire, then [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness dispose of him when he's no longer needed]].
-->'''Rinkus''': Just be patient; [[WhamLine let HIM lead US to the stone...]]
* DirtyCoward: Rinkus. Or so it seems...
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Rinkus' darker side is hinted at several times in the movie, like not so subtley implying that he wanted to threaten Littlefoot with violence or even ''death'' if he doesn't tell them the location of the stone.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution:
** Sierra suggests feeding the main characters to sharpteeth.
** Rinkus says that should kill Littlefoot if he doesn't give them information about the stone.
* NotSoHarmless: Rinkus, who proves himself to be a pretty nasty schemer on several occasions.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Underneath his supposed stupidity, Rinkus is easily the smarter and more treacherous of the two.
* PragmaticVillainy: Rinkus, as opposed to the eccentric Pterano and [[ForTheEvulz just malevolent]] Sierra. His boss pisses him off and mistreats him? Goes perfectly in alignment with his will until muscle back up (in that case, his beligerent coleague) is conveniently availiable.
* PteroSoarer: Same as above.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Sierra is a ''Cearadactylus'', whose only other appearance in popular media was the novel version of ''Literature/JurassicPark''.
* ShoutOut: Rinkus is constantly twisting his tail in his hands, [[{{Film/TheWizardOfOz}} kind of like a certain other famous cowardly character.]]
* {{Smug Snake}}s: Both of them, but Rinkus moreso than Sierra.
* TheSociopath: They're both this, in different flavors; Sierra's the violent, hateful sociopath with [[LackOfEmpathy no empathy]], while Rinkus is the lying, deceitful sociopath who can convincingly fake emotions and manipulate people.

A mysterious male and female Gallimimus who talk in riddles and seem to posses uncommonly advanced knowledge about the world. Their current whereabouts (if they're even still on Earth) are unknown.

Appear in film seven only.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Charles Kimbrough (male)\\
Patti Deutsch (female)
----
* AlienAmongUs: Never directly addressed, but very, VERY heavily implied, both by their more-than-saurian knowledge of how the world works, and by the shimmering pillar of light that marks their departure.
* CloudCuckooLander: The Great Valley seems to see them as weirdos who say bizarre things, although Mr. Clubtail claims they seem 'harmless enough'.
* DeadpanSnarker: The female Rainbow Face.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: How they generally act. [[ShipTease And they might be one]], but there's no confirmation.
* ThePhilosopher: They both bring up points of view that seem [[IncrediblyLamePun alien]] to the members of the Great Valley, such as the idea that there's nothing that makes the Mysterious Beyond 'mysterious' other than a lack of will to explore it.
* SayingTooMuch: A running gag with the male Rainbow Face, something his companion likes to point out.
-->'''Female Rainbow Face:''' Life is full of little mysteries, isn't it? (''turns to the male one'') And ''you'' are giving away too many of them!
* TheSpock: Both are incredibly logical and scientific about the world, and utterly unconcerned with how weird the Valley residents think they are.

Appears in film eight and several TV episodes.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Robert Guillame (''VIII'')\\
Dorian Harewood (TV series)
----
* AscendedExtra: Appears in only one film, becomes a regular character in the TV series.
* BreakTheHaughty: Starts out the film as being very proud of his knowledge and position in the valley, and speaks to Grandpa scathingly about Littlefoot's stream of questions. When he's proven incredibly wrong about the potential of snowfall in the Great Valley, he's shunned by the herd and is forced to accompany the children on their journey to find Ducky and Spike.
* CoolOldGuy: Eventually.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: When he was young, Mr. Thicknose was incredibly shy and had difficulty making friends. He often spent his time listening to the things that the farwalkers had to say as they passed through the Great Valley, and it was because of this that he amassed so much second-hand knowledge. His position as a keeper of wisdom in the valley is so precious to him that when he loses it he feels as though he has little else to live for.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Originally respected as the smartest resident of the Great Valley, having "Been everywhere and seen everything", it is then revealed that he gets most of his knowledge from second-hand sources. Though he does put the information he's gained about landmarks to good use later on.
* SpockSpeak: PlayedForLaughs as he explains the various ways of getting leaves to fall from a tree, like the 'Cranio-Impactus Method' that involves hitting the tree with your head.
* SternTeacher: He dislikes all of the prying questions Littlefoot keeps asking him, to the point that he tells his grandparents that he's a trouble-making influence on the rest of his class. Later, it's revealed he actually thought Littlefoot asked very good questions, but he had been afraid that it might have accidentally revealed that he really ''hadn't'' been everywhere and seen everything.
* YoungerAndHipper: The TV show has Mr. Thicknose with a significantly deeper, younger sounding voice, along with a more energetic personality. He also seems to have become far more open in his beliefs: while he refused to accept that snow could ever fall in the great valley in film eight, he seems perfectly willing to believe that there is such thing as an invisible dinosaur in the TV series.

Appears in film nine, makes cameos in films ten and twelve, and appears in the TV episode ''The Missing Fastwater Adventure''.

----
* BloodBrothers: Sort of. In the ninth film, he and Littlefoot become 'mud brothers', a PG equivalent.
* DisneyDeath
* GuestStarPartyMember
* HeroicSacrifice: Narrowly escapes a swimming sharptooth when it changes direction while he hides in a hollow log.
* {{Keet}}: The little guy has tons of energy.
* StarfishAlien: If the Swimming Sharptooth is an EldritchAbomination from the kids' POV, then Mo is definitely one of these to them; a lot of attention is drawn to the fact that he's very different from them, although their differences are not treated as bad and it's made very clear that the only real way they're different is in physical appearance.

[[folder:Sharptooth Swimmer - ''Liopleurodon'']]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pliosaur_9.png]]
A voracious carnivore from the sea, this swimming sharptooth is a long way from home to be sure, but he won't let that get in the way of a good meal.

Appears in film nine only.
----
* BigBad: Of ''Journey to Big Water''.
* EvilCounterpart: To Mo. Both are non-dinosaurian reptiles from the ocean that are forcible taken from their homes and left in a newly made lake in the Great Valley. Unlike Mo, this one is a vicious carnivore.
* EldritchAbomination: To the kids. They've never seen anything like it, and Littlefoot even calls it a monster.
* KrakenAndLeviathan: Of the leviathan type.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: Not quite, but it's certainly meant to bring this trope to mind
* NonMaliciousMonster: The only reason it ever crosses paths with the heroes is because it's trapped in the Great Valley with Mo. It is a carnivore, so it does try to eat them, but its clear than it is just trying to get home, and stops antagonizing the kids after it smells the ocean.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: It's probably the most realistically designed creature in the series. Even the more vicious portrayals of sharpteeth in the series has them looking stylized and slightly cartoony, whereas the Sharptooth Swimmer looks like it was plucked straight out of a nature documentary. It also has no pupils or facial expressions (most of the time)
* SeaMonster: Well, it ''is'' a Liopleurodon, so what did you expect? It to be eating cheese?

[[caption-width-right:300:"Your mother and I knew we were going to have a hatchling."]]
A herd leader that partakes in the Great Longneck migration. He's Littlefoot's long lost father, and the adopted father of Shorty. Due to the responsibilities of being a herd leader, he does not live in the Great Valley with his biological son, but now steers his entire herd to the valley once every year just to see him.

Appears in films ten, fourteen, and the TV episode ''The Big Longneck Test''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/KieferSutherland (''X'')\\
Creator/CamClarke (TV series)\\
Scott Whyte (''XIV'')
----
* {{Callback}}: Bron’s explanation of where he’s been for all of Littlefoot’s life provides more callbacks to the original film than at any other point in the sequels (the only other ones being a mention of the earthquake in the seventh film, mentions of Littfoot's mother dying in the fifth and fourteenth films, and some throwaway callbacks in the second, thirteenth, and fourteenth films). Among hem is the only ''ever'' direct mention of the original Sharptooth to date.
* DisappearedDad: He left to find a suitable place to live before Littlefoot's birth and by the time he returned, the Great Earthshake had occurred.
* GenreSavvy: Bron is, to date, the ''only'' adult in the film series that told Littlefoot to go help fight a Sharptooth, instead of to run away. Apparently, when Littlefoot described his childhood of [[CurbStompBattle beating every Sharptooth he encountered]], Bron was actually listening.
* GoodParents: When he does reunite with Littlefoot and makes amends with him, he is shown to be a very loving father to both him and Shorty.
* IThoughtYouWereDead: Bron's excuse for having never met his son until now.
* LightningBruiser: The only Longneck in the series to use a ''running start'' to attack a Sharptooth. Also the only one to not be defenseless when knocked off his feet--he just kicks the offending Sharptooth in the face and sends it rolling down a mountain.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Looks remarkably like his son, such as having the same coloration. He's also a herd leader, much like Littlefoot who often acts like a herd leader to his friends during adventures.
* NamedLikeMyName: When he was younger, people used to give him the nickname 'little foot'. His wife knew this about him, and decided to name their son after this.
* RealityEnsues: Sorry, Bron, your son is not going to instantly accept you when he finds out you're his father. Indeed, Bron ends up having to explain, in detail, where he was for all that time and why he was never there for him to get Littlefoot to forgive him.
* RememberTheNewGuy: He somehow already knows who Chomper and Ruby are in the TV series, despite it never being shown how they were introduced, or how Bron reacted when he found out that one of his son’s best friends is the same kind of creature that killed his wife.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Bron would risk his life for anyone in his herd-- even for weirdos like Wild Arms.
* OneHitKO: When he kicked a Sharptooth in the face in X, it went rolling down the mountain and didn't get up for about a minute. Which is a very long time, [[{{MadeOfIron}} where Sharpteeth are concerned.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To Shorty.

[[folder:Shorty - ''Brachiosaurus'']]
[[quoteright:284:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shorty_rsz1.jpg]]

Appears in film ten and the TV episode ''The Big Longneck Test''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Brandon Michael de Paul (''X'')\\
Creator/ElizabethDaily (TV series)
----
* BigBrotherBully: When he first meets Littlefoot, his future step-brother, he picks on him. This tendency abates once Bron agrees to adopt Shorty.
* BratsWithSlingshots: He uses his tail to smack pebbles at things with great precision.
* GreenEyedMonster: Shorty is blisteringly jealous of Littlefoot hogging all of Bron's attention, to the point that he tries to start physical confrontations with him.
* HappilyAdopted: By Bron.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LeaderWannabe: While Littlefoot is off taking the big longneck test, Shorty takes his friends on an adventure in his stead. It quickly becomes apparent that he has none of his step-brother's leadership talents.
* NoPlaceForMeThere: While Bron is understandably ecstatic to have found the son he’d thought he’d lost long ago, Shorty sees it as Bron finding his ‘family’ and therefore has no need for him anymore, just like how his old companions left him. Shorty prepares to slip away when Bron isn’t noticing, but Littlefoot stops him and tells him that Bron still cares for him, even bringing up the possibility of the two being brothers now.
* NotSoDifferent: He and Littlefoot were in identical situations following the earthshake of the first film: both are separated from their family and must team up with other youngsters to survive. However, as he and his companions start following Bron, one by one they're all reunited with their family members-- except for Shorty.
* StreetUrchin: Not unlike Littlefoot himself, Shorty was left alone to fend for himself in the world after the Great Earthshake of the first film. However, unlike Littlefoot, Shorty never reunited with anything he could call family.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Is neither seen nor mentioned in ''Journey of the Brave'', despite the plot revolving entirely around finding Bron and the arrival of his herd.

A group of friendly but oft-persecuted tiny dinosaurs that are searching for a place to live. After a lengthy fiasco involving a fruit tree, they eventually elected to make the Great Valley their new home.

They appear in film eleven and make a cameo appearance in film twelve.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/MichaelClarkeDuncan (Big Daddy)\\
Creator/CreeSummer (Lizzie)\\
Leigh Kelly (Skitter)\\
Ashley Rose (Dusty)\\
Creator/NikaFutterman (Rocky)
----
* BadassBaritone: The leader of the tinysauruses, Big Daddy, is voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan.
* BeneathTheEarth: They initially hide in the caves underneath the Great Valley to avoid persecution from larger dinosaurs. According to Ducky in ''Stranger from the Mysterious Above'' they still live in the valley caves by the time of the TV series, despite not having any reason to hide anymore.
* CallARabbitASmeerp: Despite it being in the title of the eleventh movie and the term they’re most widely know by, they’re never actually called ‘Tinysauruses’ in the film, and instead called ‘little longnecks’. However, in an episode of the TV series Ducky does refer to them as such.
* LittlePeople: They're the smallest dinosaurs in the series, with the adults being even smaller than Ducky. Justified, as juvenile Mussaurus were indeed incredibly tiny (hence the name 'Mouse Lizard'), although in real life the adults got much bigger than how they're depicted here.
* TheScapegoat: Littlefoot blames them for eating all the tree sweets off a special tree, which is half-true but ignoring how they couldn’t have done so without him accidentally knocking them all down. Party because of his own initial fear of them, Littlefoot doesn’t realize how much trouble this causes for the tinysauruses until he gets to know some of them personally. As it turns out, getting unfairly blamed for misfortunes is something that happens to them wherever they go.
* WalkingTheEarth: Everywhere they go they’re treated like vermin, and travel from place to place to try to find somewhere they can call home. At first it seems as though the Great Valley is just as prejudiced towards them as anywhere else, but by the end of the film they elect to settle and become valley residents.

* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The gentle girl to Topsy's brooding boy.
* GoodParents: She's a good parent to her biological daughter and a good stepparent to her stepdaughter.
* MinnesotaNice: In the TV series, at least. There are hints of the accent in her inflections, and she certainly has the polite behavior.
* MoralityPet: She seems to be the only adult in the series capable of soothing Cera's hot-headed father.
* NewOldFlame: To Topsy.
* WickedStepmother: Greatly averted. When she first gets together with Topsy, she takes great pains to try to establish a healthy, loving relationship with Cera, who's unwilling to facilitate it at first. Tria's patience eventually runs out and the two clash briefly, but Cera decides to give her a chance. After that, she loves and cares for Cera like she's her own daughter.

----
* ButtMonkey
* InstantExpert: Has no problem flying, as long as he is asleep. Later learns to do it for himself.
* {{Joisey}}: He possesses a mild New Jersey accent.
* LastOfHisKind: Allegedly, likely stemming from...
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: He wakes up in the Great Valley and has no idea where he is, what he is, where he came from, how he got here...
* NoodleIncident: Chomper mentions that the two were first introduced when Guido baby sat for Tricia, which is why he's only nervous when he sees him instead of outright terrified.
* RememberedICouldFly: See above, and only after everyone tells him he can.
* PluckyComicRelief: Like Petrie, he's a panic-prone flier whose fears are often PlayedForLaughs.
* ToothyBird: Inverted; ''Microraptors'' had toothy snouts in real life, but Guido has a toothless, parrot-like beak.
* VegetarianCarnivore: Subverted. He doesn't know what kind of animal he is, so it takes a while for him to figure out his real diet. He starts out trying to eat leaves, but he's grossed out by them. He instead eats a bug that he found on one of those leaves...and he instantly loves it. His friends are kind of squicked out by this.

* NamedLikeMyName: Her name is very similar to her mother's.
* SiblingRivalry: Cera was none to keen of Tricia when she was first hatched, as she hogged all of her father's and Tria's attention. By the end of film twelve, however, Cera grew to love her new half-sister, and future installments almost always show them on good terms with each other.

* CloudCuckooLander
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Doofa has a habit of calling Cera beautiful. That combined with picking her up the first time they meet, well...
* EscortMission: They seem so naive, incompetent, and clumsy that Littlefoot actually feared for their safety when they mention they're traveling alone, to the point of having nightmares about them meeting some horrible fate. He decides it would be best if he and his friends tag along to keep an eye on them. This can also count as AdultsAreUseless, or perhaps more aptly, Adults Are Helpless.

Damon Wayans Jr.
----
* {{Adorkable}}
* ButtMonkey: He's rarely shown in a dignified position.
* CloudCuckooLander: He didn't even realize the origin of his name until he seemingly realized it in the middle of his conversation with Mr. Threehorn.
* {{Fainting}}: He's terrified of Chomper the moment he sees him, and as soon as the boy goes in to hold his hand to guide where he's going, he faints on the spot.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Not for the gang, but for Mr. Threehorn and Grandpa Longneck as they trail Littlefoot.
* HateAtFirstSight: A one sided version. Topsy dislikes him the moment he sets eyes on him. Wild Arms is intimidated by Mr. Threehorn, but does try to get into his good graces as the film goes on.
* TheKlutz: He has, to put it mildly, a striking lack of grace, and often flails his arms around wildly when he's running about. [[spoiler: It's this clumsiness that ends up putting Bron in danger as he stays behind to rescue him.]]
* LovableCoward: He constantly suggests going back to the Great Valley instead of going to save Bron, and is so terrified of Chomper-- a kid who's less than half his size-- that he faints when he so much as touches him.
* MilesGloriosus: He'll often retell stories in a way that paints him in a better light than how it actually happened, although absolutely no one is fooled by this.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: 'Wild Arms' is a name that everyone has assigned him because of his wild, colorful arms, and as such it isn't his actual name. In fact, he didn't even realize what it was referring to until recently.
* PinchMe: At least until he sees that the nearest person is an unamused Mr. Threehorn glaring at him--then he just pinches himself.
* PluckyComicRelief
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: It's clear that the other adults find him very hard to put up with because of his loud, talkative, cowardly nature, which is especially true for Mr. Threehorn who's almost always seen glaring at him.

* CallARabbitASmeerp: She's specifically as 'Big Beak' subtype of flyer.
* CloudCuckooLander
* CoolOldLady: She's significantly older than the main cast, but still optimistic and hopeful. When Littlefoot is beating himself up over getting his friends into a situation too big for them to handle, she tries her best to cheer him up.
%%* CrossesTheLineTwice: She makes a surprisingly dark joke when she mentions a cousin of hers who was so brave, she would stick her head in a Sharptooth's mouth for a friend. And that's why she's not around anymore...
* GuestStarPartyMember
* InkSuitActor: She has Reba [=McEntire's=] green eyes and long eyelashes, as well as a red tinge on her crest that's the same color as Reba's hair.
* PteroSoarer
* RamblingOldManMonologue: She has plenty of stories about her family that she loves to bring up, and most of them end morbidly.
* SouthernBelle: Etta retains her voice actress's pronounced southern drawl in the film.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: For Archie from film four, another old cave dweller who helped Littlefoot when he was separated from his friends because of a cave-in, and Swooper from the TV series, who’s also a cave dwelling old flier with a southern accent and [[CloudCuckooLander a few screws loose.]]
* TeamMom: She's very affectionate towards Littlefoot in particular, which might be due to the fact that he's her herd leader's son.

* BigBad: Of the TV Series.
* TheDreaded: He's so feared in the Mysterious Beyond that Chomper's parents-- two capable sharpteeth who were able to defeat the vicious Plated Sharptooth-- sent their only son to the Great Valley to be safe from him.
* {{Expy}}: Of the original Sharptooth. Just like the original sharptooth, Red Claw causes such widespread fear that even other sharpteeth try to keep away from him. Also telling is his one discolored eye, likely a reference to the original sharptooth getting stabbed in the eye with a thorn.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* InformedAbility: He's said to be one of the biggest, baddest Sharptooth of all time, but he's constantly defeated by a group of children...though said children have a long record of beating Sharptooth. That said, he's never shown to be nearly as vicious as the original sharptooth.

Appear in films two and five.



* AdaptationExpansion: In the movie it's unclear whether Sharptooth is a NonMaliciousMonster or not. The book shows some events from his perspective, and gives him an arrogant, vain, and vindictive personality on top of his predatory instincts.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the movie, he's mostly portrayed as an instinctive force of nature, albeit with more personality than one might expect. The novelization, however, depicts him as being like a prehistoric SerialKiller.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Is he a sadistic, vengeful murderer, or just a predator desperate for food? Throughout the movie, it remains up in the air.
* AxCrazy: Is noticeably unhinged and needlessly violent even for a ''Tyrannosaurus''. In the novelization, this is even more evident as instead of a simple predator, he is a vengeful, spiteful and sadistic SerialKiller in the skin of a dinosaur.
* TheBerserker: His face is always locked in one single expression; pure, unadulterated, pissed-off rage. At one point, Mama Longneck smacks Sharptooth with her tail and he smashes into a rock. He responded by ''pulverizing the rock with repeated headbutts before he does anything else.''
* BigBad: Considered this in the first film.
* CarnivoreConfusion: He is a ''T. rex'' hunting sentient baby dinosaurs.
* DeathGlare: Shoots Petrie a murderous glare after the pterosaur hits him with a pebble.
* TheDreaded: When even baby dinosaurs know your name, you're this. The book mentions he'd been following the herds for some time, preying on stragglers and building a reputation.
** Also, when Littlefoot's mother intervenes, she orders Littlefoot to run. This is notable because baby animals usually stay near their parents during such instances (such as Wildebeest and Bison), and the chances that Littlefoot could run into another hazard without her presence. It also indicates Littlefoot's mother knew she would likely loose the fight, and that no other hazard in the area was as dangerous as Sharptooth.
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Falls off a cliff into a lake and drowns. However, unlike most, his is an intentional one on the part of the heroes, though given the situation, it's hard to blame them.]]
* EatenAlive: [[FridgeHorror Possibly what he was doing to Littlefoot's mother during the fight]].
* EyeAwaken: When Cera uses his seemingly dead body to practise headbutting, his eye snaps open and stares at her, revealing he's still alive. Note that this is the eye that was stabbed with a thorn and was supposed to have been blinded.
* EyeScream: Littlefoot accidentally stabs him in the eye with a thorn while trying to escape, blinding him in that eye. The illustrations in the book and original cut of the film showed it bleeding afterwards.
* ForTheEvulz: Unlike most predators, he seems to kill other dinosaurs entirely because he ''wants'' to, not because he ''needs'' to.
* HandicappedBadass: The novelization reveals he was blinded in his right eye when Littlefoot accidentally [[EyeScream stabbed it with a thorn]]. Despite this, he apparently is still capable of seeing things around him perfectly fine.
* TheHeavy: Most of the events in the first film would not have happened had it not been for him.
* HeroKiller: Sharptooth not only survives being bashed into cliffs and falling into a ravine, but mortally wounds Littlefoot's mother - who, granted, puts up one heck of a fight - and almost kills the main group several times.
* ImplacableMan: One of the most notable in western animation. Borders on slasher villain territory.
* ItsPersonal: He hates Littlefoot because he accidentally blinded him on one of his eyes. He also hates Cera for headbutting him when he was unconscious. It's heavily implied that THIS and his hatred are the reasons why he is going to such extremes to kill dinosaurs that would be of little food value to him.
* KillItWithWater: [[spoiler:Meets his end when the heroes use a rock to topple him into a lake. Due to having stubby arms, he can't swim and drowns.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Oh yes. The movie was very soft until he showed up. He is arguably the only villain who was treated seriously in the series.
* MadeOfIron: His stamina and strength were ridiculous enough, but he survived falling into a deep trench without any actual injury and can smash large rocks with his head with no pain involved.
* {{Narcissist}}: The novel mentions that Sharptooth was extremely arrogant and vain, to the point where Cera headbutting him - which didn't hurt him in the slightest - pissed him off, and Littlefoot inadvertently stabbing his right eye with a thorn sparked a deep, intense grudge.
* NonMaliciousMonster: Definitely averted; one of the things that made Sharptooth so incredibly terrifying was that he didn't just kill for food, he also killed for ''pleasure'' and more often, because he was ticked off.
* NotQuiteDead: Is seemingly killed when he falls off a cliff fighting Little Foot's mother. Cera finds out later on he survived and is ''ticked off!''
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In the book version, the reason he relentlessly pursues the protagonists is because when Littlefoot fled from him he sent a thorn flying into his right eye, half-blinding him. In most scenes of the film he has his right eye closed, which supports this.
* SuperPersistentPredator: Is dead set on killing the group. Justifed as only a few other dinosaurs are seen during the film, so they may just be the only thing to eat. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge He also wants revenge]] on Littlefoot for [[EyeScream injuring his right eye]] and Cera for [[MinorInjuryOverreaction headbutting him when he was unconscious]].
* TheSociopath: A violent, sadistic, prideful monster that kills for sport.
* TakingYouWithMe: Bites down on Petrie's tail as he falls into the water.
* UnstoppableRage: He's in a psychotic fury for every moment of screen time. And it is ''terrifying''.
* TheVoiceless: Like almost every sharptooth in the series, he communicates solely with snarls, roars, and growls.
* WouldHurtAChild: Most definitely, as he literally spends his entire onscreen time trying to kill the five main characters, who happen to be baby dinosaurs.

Ultimately she could rest in peace now that had achieved everything she wanted for her child.

What's more, there actually was film footage made depicting more of the the fight between her and sharptooth.

* GenreSavvy: Bron is, to date, the ''only'' adult in the film series that told Littlefoot to go help fight a Sharptooth, instead of to run away. Apparently, when Littlefoot described his childhood of [[CurbStompBattle beating every Sharptooth he encountered]], Bron was actually listening.

He often spent his time listening to the things that the farwalkers had to say as they passed through the Great Valley, and it was because of this that he amassed so much second-hand knowledge.

* BigBad: Of ''Journey to Big Water''.
* EvilCounterpart: To Mo. Both are non-dinosaurian reptiles from the ocean that are forcible taken from their homes and left in a newly made lake in the Great Valley. Unlike Mo, this one is a vicious carnivore.

* {{Callback}}: Bron’s explanation of where he’s been for all of Littlefoot’s life provides more callbacks to the original film than at any other point in the sequels (the only other ones being a mention of the earthquake in the seventh film, mentions of Littfoot's mother dying in the fifth and fourteenth films, and some throwaway callbacks in the second, thirteenth, and fourteenth films). Among hem is the only ''ever'' direct mention of the original Sharptooth to date.
* DisappearedDad: He left to find a suitable place to live before Littlefoot's birth and by the time he returned, the Great Earthshake had occurred.
* GenreSavvy: Bron is, to date, the ''only'' adult in the film series that told Littlefoot to go help fight a Sharptooth, instead of to run away. Apparently, when Littlefoot described his childhood of [[CurbStompBattle beating every Sharptooth he encountered]], Bron was actually listening.

Party because of his own initial fear of them, Littlefoot doesn’t realize how much trouble this causes for the tinysauruses until he gets to know some of them personally. As it turns out, getting unfairly blamed for misfortunes is something that happens to them wherever they go.

He's responsible for the death of Littlefoot's mother. [[spoiler: He's supposedly killed by Littlefoot and his friends after they drop a rock on him, knocking him into a deep water hole.]]

A general list of tropes pertaining to the group of protagonists Appears only in the Land Before Time movies and TV series. They are: Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, Spike, Chomper, and Ruby.first film.



* AmazingTechnicolorWildLife: While the original five are all right, mostly being earth tones, for some reason Chomper is purple and Ruby is pink with hot-pink spots.
* BigDamnHeroes: Constantly, for various reasons.
* BrotherSisterTeam:
** Ducky and Spike
** Ruby and Chomper are also sort of this.
* CallARabbitASmeerp: The kids are, respectively, a 'Longneck', a 'Threehorn', a 'Flier', a 'Swimmer', a 'Spiketail', a 'Sharptooth', and a 'Fast Runner'.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
** A newly hatched Cera headbutts her way out of her egg.
** Ducky jumps around while she's barely out of the egg, follows an insect around, then [[CuriosityKilledTheCast peers curiously]] into [[FearlessFool the mouth of a snapping turtle]].
** Spike [[BigEater eats his own nest]].
** Petrie falls screaming from a tree, gets tossed around a bit, then excitedly asks if he flew.
* FightingTheLancer: Littlefoot and Cera's fights in the first, second, and fifth films.
* FireForgedFriends: The classic lineup.
* FiveManBand: Formerly this, but gained two members in the TV show.
* GriefSong: 'Always There' (the final verse of which Littlefoot sings about his mother) from the fifth film is part grief song and part lullaby; along with 'Bestest Friends' from the tenth movie and 'If We Hold On Together' from the first movie, one of the best songs the long and musical series has ever produced.
* GroupHug: At several points, but most notably in the last shot of the first film.
* HeadbuttingHeroes: Littlefoot and Cera avert this in the usual sense (except in the first movie, where it's played straight, and very briefly in film five), but the trope holds true in the literal sense: at several points they've actually butted heads.
* InterspeciesFriendship
* KidHero: It's no question that all seven of them fit, but in terms of ages, it's never definitively stated. Ruby is assumed to be the eldest of the gang, while Cera claims to be the oldest of the original five. The order of Littlefoot's, Petrie's, and Ducky's births seems unclear. The only order that is definitely known is that Chomper is the youngest and Spike is the second youngest.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Both Littlefoot and Ruby act like older siblings to Chomper.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Littlefoot is soft spoken and polite. Cera is snarky and brash.
* NaughtyIsGood: Rarely obey their parents' rules. Then again, [[AdultsAreUseless considering not one of their parents rules has ever shown to help with anything]], you can't exactly blame them.
* {{Nice Job Breaking It Hero}}es: Many of their adventures involves one or all of them screwing up in some way, and then rushing to fix their mistake.
* OddFriendship: A soft spoken Apatosaurus, a hot headed Triceratops, a happy-go lucky Hadrosaur, a panicky Pteranodon, and a mute Stegosaurus somehow make a cohesive and tight-knit group. It gets even more bizarre when a friendly Tyrannosaurus and a whimsical Oviraptor get added to the crew.
* PragmaticHero: All of them; they're not adverse to fighting dirty when confronted with sharpteeth.
* PromotedToParent: In the first sequel, the gang ends up having to raise the newly hatched Chomper until his real parents come to claim him. And Ruby is something of this by the series.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: A tastefully done example, though.
* TrueCompanions
* UnusualAnimalAlliance
* VitriolicBestBuds: Littlefoot and Cera.
* WhenImGoneSong: Inverted with 'Bestest Friends' from the tenth film (which is more of a ''[='=]When You're Gone[='=] Song'' considering the context).

to:

* AmazingTechnicolorWildLife: While AdaptationExpansion: In the original five are all right, movie it's unclear whether Sharptooth is a NonMaliciousMonster or not. The book shows some events from his perspective, and gives him an arrogant, vain, and vindictive personality on top of his predatory instincts.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the movie, he's
mostly portrayed as an instinctive force of nature, albeit with more personality than one might expect. The novelization, however, depicts him as being earth tones, like a prehistoric SerialKiller.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Is he a sadistic, vengeful murderer, or just a predator desperate
for some reason Chomper is purple food? Throughout the movie, it remains up in the air.
* AxCrazy: Is noticeably unhinged
and Ruby needlessly violent even for a ''Tyrannosaurus''. In the novelization, this is pink even more evident as instead of a simple predator, he is a vengeful, spiteful and sadistic SerialKiller in the skin of a dinosaur.
* TheBerserker: His face is always locked in one single expression; pure, unadulterated, pissed-off rage. At one point, Mama Longneck smacks Sharptooth
with hot-pink spots.
* BigDamnHeroes: Constantly, for various reasons.
* BrotherSisterTeam:
** Ducky

** Ruby and Chomper are also sort of this.

reputation.
** Also, when Littlefoot's mother intervenes, she orders Littlefoot to run. This is notable because baby animals usually stay near their parents during such instances (such as Wildebeest and Bison), and the chances that Littlefoot could run into another hazard without her presence. It also indicates Littlefoot's mother knew she would likely loose the fight, and that no other hazard in the area was as dangerous as Sharptooth.
* PromotedToParent: In DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Falls off a cliff into a lake and drowns. However, unlike most, his is an intentional one on the part of the heroes, though given the situation, it's hard to blame them.]]
* EatenAlive: [[FridgeHorror Possibly what he was doing to Littlefoot's mother during the fight]].
* EyeAwaken: When Cera uses his seemingly dead body to practise headbutting, his eye snaps open and stares at her, revealing he's still alive. Note that this is the eye that was stabbed with a thorn and was supposed to have been blinded.
* EyeScream: Littlefoot accidentally stabs him in the eye with a thorn while trying to escape, blinding him in that eye. The illustrations in the book and original cut of the film showed it bleeding afterwards.
* ForTheEvulz: Unlike most predators, he seems to kill other dinosaurs entirely because he ''wants'' to, not because he ''needs'' to.
* HandicappedBadass: The novelization reveals he was blinded in his right eye when Littlefoot accidentally [[EyeScream stabbed it with a thorn]]. Despite this, he apparently is still capable of seeing things around him perfectly fine.
* TheHeavy: Most of the events in
the first sequel, film would not have happened had it not been for him.

* ImplacableMan: One of the most notable in western animation. Borders on slasher villain territory.
* ItsPersonal: He hates Littlefoot because he accidentally blinded him on one of his eyes. He also hates Cera for headbutting him when he was unconscious. It's heavily implied that THIS and his hatred are the reasons why he is going to such extremes to kill dinosaurs that would be of little food value to him.
* KillItWithWater: [[spoiler:Meets his end when the heroes use a rock to topple him into a lake. Due to
having to raise the newly hatched Chomper stubby arms, he can't swim and drowns.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Oh yes. The movie was very soft
until his real parents come to claim him. And Ruby he showed up. He is something of this by arguably the only villain who was treated seriously in the series.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: A tastefully done example, though.
MadeOfIron: His stamina and strength were ridiculous enough, but he survived falling into a deep trench without any actual injury and can smash large rocks with his head with no pain involved.
* TrueCompanions
* UnusualAnimalAlliance
* VitriolicBestBuds:
{{Narcissist}}: The novel mentions that Sharptooth was extremely arrogant and vain, to the point where Cera headbutting him - which didn't hurt him in the slightest - pissed him off, and Littlefoot and Cera.
* WhenImGoneSong: Inverted
inadvertently stabbing his right eye with 'Bestest Friends' a thorn sparked a deep, intense grudge.
* NonMaliciousMonster: Definitely averted; one of the things that made Sharptooth so incredibly terrifying was that he didn't just kill for food, he also killed for ''pleasure'' and more often, because he was ticked off.
* NotQuiteDead: Is seemingly killed when he falls off a cliff fighting Little Foot's mother. Cera finds out later on he survived and is ''ticked off!''
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In the book version, the reason he relentlessly pursues the protagonists is because when Littlefoot fled
from him he sent a thorn flying into his right eye, half-blinding him. In most scenes of the tenth film (which is more of a ''[='=]When You're Gone[='=] Song'' considering he has his right eye closed, which supports this.
* SuperPersistentPredator: Is dead set on killing
the context).group. Justifed as only a few other dinosaurs are seen during the film, so they may just be the only thing to eat. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge He also wants revenge]] on Littlefoot for [[EyeScream injuring his right eye]] and Cera for [[MinorInjuryOverreaction headbutting him when he was unconscious]].
* TheSociopath: A violent, sadistic, prideful monster that kills for sport.
* TakingYouWithMe: Bites down on Petrie's tail as he falls into the water.
* UnstoppableRage: He's in a psychotic fury for every moment of screen time. And it is ''terrifying''.
* TheVoiceless: Like almost every sharptooth in the series, he communicates solely with snarls, roars, and growls.
* WouldHurtAChild: Most definitely, as he literally spends his entire onscreen time trying to kill the five main characters, who happen to be baby dinosaurs.

* {{Badass}}: Dude once threw himself off a cliff, into shark-infested waters, ''after'' having escaped from a Gigantosaurus, to save Chomper without a second's hesitation. Now that's hardcore.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Qualifies as this in the first movie. After dealing with Cera's attitude for a while and then her remark about his mother being stupid, Littlefoot snaps at her to take it back, resulting in a fight.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Chomper and Ducky.
* DeathGlare: Gives this to Cera in "The Great Day of the Flyers" when she seemed reluctant in rescuing Guido from the Mysterious Beyond.
* DisappearedDad: Played straight until The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration.
* TheHeart: Along with Ducky.
* TheHero
* HerosJourney: At the beginning of the first movie, Littlefoot is a friendless, naïve child who's very much dependent on his mother to survive. By the end, he's become a strong, wise leader with more friends than he could have ever dreamed of.
* HeroicBSOD: After his mother dies, Littlefoot goes into a deeply depressed state. He refuses food when it's offered to him and seems to lose much of his will to find the Great Valley. The two things that snap him out of it is a chance encounter with the wise Rooter and running into another lost child like himself: Ducky.
* HeroWorshipper: For Doc in Film Six. He spends a good chunk of the movie following him around and is more than enthusiastic about Doc saving his life multiple times. However, he redirects his hero worship to his grandfather.
* HowDareYouDieOnMe: While talking with Rooter, Littlefoot tearfully says his mother should have known better than to fight the black sharptooth. This is likely just a statement out of intense grief, as her death leaves him completely alone in the world.
* ItsPersonal: Not outright stated, but when the opportunity to kill Sharptooth appears, Littlefoot is the first to take it. Less so in the original ending - where he discovered the Great Valley and then went back to rescue the others - where it was more to prevent Sharptooth from following them into the Great Valley.
* KickTheDog: Minor example. In the first film, after Cera insults his mother and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown soundly beats him]], and the group decides they would rather go with Cera, Littlefoot is so angry he leaves without another word. Not so bad on its own, except he notably ignores Petrie when he desperately tries (and fails) to follow and ''begs'' him to wait.
* TheLeader: Classic Type II leadership.
* NervesOfSteel: If something's going wrong, Littlefoot's generally the one who keeps his head together.
* NiceGuy: Easily the kindest and most levelheaded of the main cast.
* OnlySaneMan: Usually. He does his fair share of unreasonable things as well.
* RaisedByGrandparents: After Littlefoot's mom dies, his maternal grandparents assume guardianship of him.
* RedIsHeroic: His eyes are a shade of reddish brown that varies anywhere from mahogany to maroon between movies.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Frequently breaks the rules in order to fix a problem that the adults won't.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Cera insults his mother and then adds injury to insult by soundly defeating him in a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, Littlefoot is ''not'' happy when the others say they would rather go with Cera since her way is "easier."
* SiblingsWanted:
** In the 9th film, Littlefoot laments that he has no brothers or sisters to play with. One movie later, he get's an adopted brother: Shorty.
** Chomper might technically be called his 'godbrother', considering he oversaw his birth.
** Mo and Littlefoot declare themselves [[BloodBrothers 'Mud Brothers']].
* StreetUrchin: The dour conditions of Littlefoot's first years of life are a clear metaphor for being born into poverty, and when he loses his mother, he perfectly fits the description of a desperate street orphan.
* RedOniBlueOni: The calm, reasonable Blue to the hot-headed Cera's Red.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Given what the original Sharptooth did to him, his friends, and his family, Littlefoot has plenty of reasons to fear and hate the newly hatched Chomper for what he is. However, he refuses to forsake a newborn child for what the rest of his kind has done, and is the most vocal proponent in the group to caring after him.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Inverted: a notable part of Littlefoot’s design is his long, feminine eyelashes, despite being a boy.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: [[MemeticMutation Mutha fuckin' treestars, bitch!]]
* UndyingLoyalty: He will ''never'' abandon his friends and family.
* WhatTheHellHero: In ''Invasion of the Tinysauruses'', Littlefoot accidentally knocks all of the fruit off of a special tree that no one is to eat from until everyone is there to share it. He proceeds to lay the blame on the innocent Tinysauruses, and the rest of the Valley inhabitants try to chase away and destroy the innocent micro-dinos. When Littlefoot admits he lied, ''everyone'' gives him a disbelieving reaction.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Played fairly realistically. While he's still clearly a kid at heart and prone to making mistakes, his values, beliefs, and sense of duty are very advanced for his age.
* WouldHitAGirl: To be fair, the girl in question ''can'' shatter rocks with her ''head''.

* AbsenteeActor: She is absent from the final episode of the TV series.
* ActionGirl: When you can shatter rocks with your head, you've earned this title.
* BigSisterInstinct:
** Towards her baby sister Tricia, as well as her friends.
** She's kind of a grey area for her niece and nephew, Dana and Dina, since she often gets annoyed by their antics. However, she still loves them and freaked out when they disappeared.
* BreakTheHaughty: She spends most of the first film bragging about how she can take care of herself...until she nearly gets everyone killed following her way.
* CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Despite constantly complaining about them, she seems to genuinely value her friends.

* ChangedMyMindKid: Returns to the group in the last minute at the climax to help them defeat Sharptooth.
* DaddysGirl: She is close to her father, which makes sense because of her mother's disappearance. Her relationship with him is part of the reason why she's so stubborn and tomboyish.
* DeadpanSnarker: A big one in the sequels and TV show. Provides a lot of the funnier lines in the series as a result.

Brags about how brave she is when there's no enemy around to prove her mettle, and even headbutts targets she doesn't think can/will hit back (her sisters and parents when she's born, insects, frogs, what seems to be a dead Sharptooth...), but the second she's faced with something that can harm her (lightning, a very much alive Sharptooth...) she runs screaming.

Littlefoot is so angry afterwards that he ''cries'' with frustration and helplessness, and the film makes it clear that that was a low blow even for her.

* {{Tsundere}}: She's stubborn and arrogant, and often hides her true feelings behind sharp-tongued rudeness.
* UngratefulBitch: For most of the first movie, she remains prejudiced against longnecks and goes so far as to call Littlefoot's mother ''stupid'' even after she'd given her life to save her and Littlefoot from Sharptooth. Like many other negative traits, this too fades out as time goes.
* UseYourHead: She is a Triceratops, after all.
* WelcomeBackTraitor: She's accepted as a friend after she helps to kill Sharptooth, even though she'd left Ducky, Petrie, and Spike to nearly die awhile back. Then again, Littlefoot was almost as bad, seeing as he used Ducky as bait for the Sharptooth.

* {{Tsundere}}: She's stubborn and arrogant, and often hides her true feelings behind sharp-tongued rudeness.
* UngratefulBitch: For most of the first movie, she remains prejudiced against longnecks and goes so far as to call Littlefoot's mother ''stupid'' even after she'd given her life to save her and Littlefoot from Sharptooth. Like many other negative traits, this too fades out as time goes.
* UseYourHead: She is a Triceratops, after all.
* WelcomeBackTraitor: She's accepted as a friend after she helps to kill Sharptooth, even though she'd left Ducky, Petrie, and Spike to nearly die awhile back. Then again, Littlefoot was almost as bad, seeing as he used Ducky as bait for the Sharptooth.

* ActionGirl: Her attempt to bait the sharptooth in the original definitely counts as this.
* BadassAdorable: Don't let her size fool you. If you're threatening someone she cares about, especially her little brother, she ''will'' stand up to you.
* BigSisterInstinct: She loves Spike to death. She even started attacking a ''T Rex'' when he was paralyzed with fear.
* CatchPhrase: "Yep yep yep!" Sometimes modified to "Nope nope nope."
* CheerfulChild: Ducky is almost always happy and very excitable.
* TheChick: Ducky is the more girly of the groups females, in contrast to Cera's tomboyishness.
* CuddleBug: Ducky tends to be pretty liberal on initiating physical contact with people, and often grabs their hand, tail, appendage, or even pull them into a hug without any warning. The usual recipient of this is Spike, but she's also done it to Littlefoot, Petrie, and Chomper.
* DamselInDistress: Frequently fits this role.
* DisappearedDad: Her father appears in the first installment but vanishes in the sequels. Granted, this ''might'' be due to what happened to [[RealitySubtext Judith Barsi at the hands of her father...]]
* TheHeart: Along with Littlefoot.
* JerkassFacade: In movie eight, Ducky attempts to pretend that she doesn't care about Spike when he starts giving his new friend Tippy more attention than her. In one scene, where Petrie casually mentions Tippy's herd is going away, the facade instantly breaks and she joyfully hugs [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a very confused looking Petrie.]]
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Platonic version. When they first meet, Ducky pulls Littlefoot out of his long-standing depression (from losing his mother and being rejected by Cera) due to her cheerful, sunny disposition.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Besides Spike, Ducky hast at least 3 other sisters, but in movie six, she mentions that she was originally part of a nest of 13 twins, so she understands twin talk very well.
* MotorMouth: A mild example in the first movie, mostly due to her many verbal tics and outgoing personality, which goes along with the original name for 'swimmer': Bigmouth.
* NiceGirl
* NotSoInnocentWhistle: While trying to muster up the nerve to call Sharptooth's attention to her, she hums nervously under her breath.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Petrie.
* SpannerInTheWorks: It's quite amazing how such a little girl can cause so many problems for so many different villains. It's also the primary cause for her DamselInDistress role.
* TeamMom: She always comforts and pep-talks everyone, and her plucky personality usually rubs off on everyone around her.
* TinMan: In ''The Big Freeze'', Ducky had to ask Cera what the strange emotions she was feeling towards Spike's constant snoring and keeping her awake were. When Cera told her she was feeling angry, Ducky was mystified, because she had never felt anger before, and Cera has to teach her (In song, no less), how to express anger.
** This is probably referring to explicit anger, as she's clearly shown to display annoyance and dislike before this.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Cera's Tomboy, although she's pretty adventurous and is only really a Girly Girl when compared to Cera.
* TreeCover: Her smalls size means she often walks in on important conversations unnoticed. See SpannerInTheWorks.
* VerbalTic: Ducky has several. The first and most widely known is her tendency to repeat yes or no three times at the end of a sentence for emphatic effect. She does the same for 'he/she/it does' and 'he/she/it is', except she only repeats these phrases twice at the end of a sentence. Finally, she'll occasionally add needless tense modifiers at the end of words, resulting in phrases like 'scardeded' and 'foundeded'.
* WhatTheHellHero: The TV episode "Search for the Sky Colored Stones" shows that Ducky isn't without a dark side. During a hunt for sky colored stones (geodes), her brother gets stuck in a cave opening, and instead of running off to get help she proceeds to find and hoard all the geodes in the cave for herself, intentionally misdirects Ruby and Cera so they never find any themselves, and generally acts like a sneaky, paranoid nutcase.
* WhyAreYouLookingAtMeLikeThat: When Littlefoot explains his trap for Sharptooth, he realizes that they'll need bait to lure him into position. Cue a smiling head turn towards Ducky, the only one in the group who doesn't have a job yet. Naturally, she doesn't seem particularly thrilled, but seems to agree to it in the end. To give this context, it was a far safer job for her to do than it would been for the other three, given she just needed to lead the BigBad to a pool of water that she could swim in and he couldn't.

* ActionGirl: Her attempt to bait BigBadEnsemble: While the sharptooth in bullies are the original main antagonists to the children and the drought is the major threat to the Great Valley in ''Time of the Great Giving'', he begins causing problems all on his own when he takes charge of the dinosaurs' limited water supply.

* GrumpyBear: Perpetually.
* JerkAss: Is the one who taught Cera her FantasticRacism in the first film, and he repeatedly causes trouble for all the other grown-ups in the sequels and the series.

* OppositesAttract: It might be hard to believe, but a guy as hard as stone eventually falls for a woman as sweet as sugar. In addition, she's the only one who can calm him down.

* TookALevelInKindness: After his CharacterDevelopment in the third film, he considereably tones down a bit. Even more evident after the birth of Tricia.
* {{Troll}}: While he shows admirable acceptance by not treating Chomper like a threat, he still has no qualms telling him blatantly untrue stories just to get a kick of how scared he can make him, nor has any problems openly mocking him for his tiny arms when he knows he's self-conscious about them.

* AdaptationExpansion: In the movie it's unclear whether Sharptooth is a NonMaliciousMonster or not. The book shows some events from his perspective, and gives him an arrogant, vain, and vindictive personality on top of his predatory instincts.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the movie, he's mostly portrayed as an instinctive force of nature, albeit with more personality than one might expect. The novelization, however, depicts him as being like a prehistoric SerialKiller.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Is he a sadistic, vengeful murderer, or just a predator desperate for food? Throughout the movie, it remains up in the air.
* AxCrazy: Is noticeably unhinged and needlessly violent even for a ''Tyrannosaurus''. In the novelization, this is even more evident as instead of a simple predator, he is a vengeful, spiteful and sadistic SerialKiller in the skin of a dinosaur.
* TheBerserker: His face is always locked in one single expression; pure, unadulterated, pissed-off rage. At one point, Mama Longneck smacks Sharptooth with her tail and he smashes into a rock. He responded by ''pulverizing the rock with repeated headbutts before he does anything else.''
* BigBad: Considered this in the first film.
* CarnivoreConfusion: He is a ''T. rex'' hunting sentient baby dinosaurs.
* DeathGlare: Shoots Petrie a murderous glare after the pterosaur hits him with a pebble.
* TheDreaded: When even baby dinosaurs know your name, you're this. The book mentions he'd been following the herds for some time, preying on stragglers and building a reputation.
** Also, when Littlefoot's mother intervenes, she orders Littlefoot to run. This is notable because baby animals usually stay near their parents during such instances (such as Wildebeest and Bison), and the chances that Littlefoot could run into another hazard without her presence. It also indicates Littlefoot's mother knew she would likely loose the fight, and that no other hazard in the area was as dangerous as Sharptooth.
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Falls off a cliff into a lake and drowns. However, unlike most, his is an intentional one on the part of the heroes, though given the situation, it's hard to blame them.]]
* EatenAlive: [[FridgeHorror Possibly what he was doing to Littlefoot's mother during the fight]].
* EyeAwaken: When Cera uses his seemingly dead body to practise headbutting, his eye snaps open and stares at her, revealing he's still alive. Note that this is the eye that was stabbed with a thorn and was supposed to have been blinded.
* EyeScream: Littlefoot accidentally stabs him in the eye with a thorn while trying to escape, blinding him in that eye. The illustrations in the book and original cut of the film showed it bleeding afterwards.
* ForTheEvulz: Unlike most predators, he seems to kill other dinosaurs entirely because he ''wants'' to, not because he ''needs'' to.
* HandicappedBadass: The novelization reveals he was blinded in his right eye when Littlefoot accidentally [[EyeScream stabbed it with a thorn]]. Despite this, he apparently is still capable of seeing things around him perfectly fine.
* TheHeavy: Most of the events in the first film would not have happened had it not been for him.
* HeroKiller: Sharptooth not only survives being bashed into cliffs and falling into a ravine, but mortally wounds Littlefoot's mother - who, granted, puts up one heck of a fight - and almost kills the main group several times.
* ImplacableMan: One of the most notable in western animation. Borders on slasher villain territory.
* ItsPersonal: He hates Littlefoot because he accidentally blinded him on one of his eyes. He also hates Cera for headbutting him when he was unconscious. It's heavily implied that THIS and his hatred are the reasons why he is going to such extremes to kill dinosaurs that would be of little food value to him.
* KillItWithWater: [[spoiler:Meets his end when the heroes use a rock to topple him into a lake. Due to having stubby arms, he can't swim and drowns.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Oh yes. The movie was very soft until he showed up. He is arguably the only villain who was treated seriously in the series.
* MadeOfIron: His stamina and strength were ridiculous enough, but he survived falling into a deep trench without any actual injury and can smash large rocks with his head with no pain involved.
* {{Narcissist}}: The novel mentions that Sharptooth was extremely arrogant and vain, to the point where Cera headbutting him - which didn't hurt him in the slightest - pissed him off, and Littlefoot inadvertently stabbing his right eye with a thorn sparked a deep, intense grudge.
* NonMaliciousMonster: Definitely averted; one of the things that made Sharptooth so incredibly terrifying was that he didn't just kill for food, he also killed for ''pleasure'' and more often, because he was ticked off.
* NotQuiteDead: Is seemingly killed when he falls off a cliff fighting Little Foot's mother. Cera finds out later on he survived and is ''ticked off!''
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In the book version, the reason he relentlessly pursues the protagonists is because when Littlefoot fled from him he sent a thorn flying into his right eye, half-blinding him. In most scenes of the film he has his right eye closed, which supports this.
* SuperPersistentPredator: Is dead set on killing the group. Justifed as only a few other dinosaurs are seen during the film, so they may just be the only thing to eat. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge He also wants revenge]] on Littlefoot for [[EyeScream injuring his right eye]] and Cera for [[MinorInjuryOverreaction headbutting him when he was unconscious]].
* TheSociopath: A violent, sadistic, prideful monster that kills for sport.
* TakingYouWithMe: Bites down on Petrie's tail as he falls into the water.
* UnstoppableRage: He's in a psychotic fury for every moment of screen time. And it is ''terrifying''.
* TheVoiceless: Like almost every sharptooth in the series, he communicates solely with snarls, roars, and growls.
* WouldHurtAChild: Most definitely, as he literally spends his entire onscreen time trying to kill the five main characters, who happen to be baby dinosaurs.

bit more personality focus in "Stone of Cold Fire" and then in "Great Day of the Flyers".
* DeadpanSnarker: Has her moments.
* GoodParents: Especially noticeable in "Stone of Cold Fire", where she makes sure to set a better example for her children
than one might expect. The novelization, however, depicts Pterano.
* MamaBear: Notice a pattern here? She flew through what was essentially a ''hurricane'' to find her missing son!

him as being like a prehistoric SerialKiller.

Ultimately she could rest in peace now that had achieved everything she wanted for her child.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: We never actually see what injuries lead to her death, and considering one of the scenes contains a [[ShadowDiscretionShot horrifying shadow shot]] of Sharptooth biting a chunk of flesh out of her back, it's probably better that we don't. What's more, there actually was film footage made depicting more of the the fight between her and sharptooth.

Going by the footage of the shadow, Sharptooth wasn't just biting chunks of flesh from her back, [[EatenAlive he was eating them]]!

* BigBadEnsemble: While the bullies are the main antagonists to the children and the drought is the major threat to the Great Valley in ''Time of the Great Giving'', he begins causing problems all on his own when he takes charge of the dinosaurs' limited water supply.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: His racism and hatred is definitely toned down after the third film, in which he is saved by Grandpa Longneck and comes across a parent as bad as he is.
* CoveredInMud: In "Great Day of the Flyers".
* DividedWeFall: His stubbornness finally gets him and Cera into trouble in ''Time Of Great Giving'', and they end up getting saved by Grandpa Longneck.
* FantasticRacism: Prejudiced against longnecks. Seems to get along with Grandpa Longneck in the sequels well enough, however.
* FreudianExcuse: The reason why he acts like a grump is for the sake of his family and because his own father was as grumpy as him. [[FridgeHorror The absence of his wife and all of his children besides Cera from the second film onward may also explain it]].
* GrumpyBear: Perpetually.
* JerkAss: Is the one who taught Cera her FantasticRacism in the first film, and he repeatedly causes trouble for all the other grown-ups in the sequels and the series.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He genuinely loves his daughter despite all his other flaws.
* TheLancer: He's second in authority only to Grandpa in the Great Valley, sometimes sharing the role of leader.
* MisterDescriptor: He's one of the only parents of the gang who's first name has been revealed: Topps. However, no one ever calls him this save for his wife's AffectionateNickname of 'Topsy', and instead just refer to him by his species.
* OppositesAttract: It might be hard to believe, but a guy as hard as stone eventually falls for a woman as sweet as sugar. In addition, she's the only one who can calm him down.
* PapaWolf
* TookALevelInKindness: After his CharacterDevelopment in the third film, he considereably tones down a bit. Even more evident after the birth of Tricia.
* {{Troll}}: While he shows admirable acceptance by not treating Chomper like a threat, he still has no qualms telling him blatantly untrue stories just to get a kick of how scared he can make him, nor has any problems openly mocking him for his tiny arms when he knows he's self-conscious about them.
* VillainSong: Not really a villain, just a an antagonist. 'I'm Tough' could be considered this in the third film, given what he was doing at the time.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He will do anything to protect his family, going to violent lengths.

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Especially evident in the TV series.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: It's not explored that much in the TV series, but many leaf eaters of the Great Valley don't trust him for being a sharptooth, and it's implied that this is the reason why he and Ruby have to sleep in the secret caverns separated from the rest of the residents. Chomper spends almost all of his time with his TrueCompanions, so it rarely bothers him.
* AudienceSurrogate: Chomper wasn't around for most of Littlefoot's adventures, so he and Ruby receive a lot of exposition whenever they meet one of the characters from the sequels.
* BadLiar: When he and Ruby are suspected of being in the area, he actually shouts from their hiding spot:
-->'''Chomper''': "I don't know what you mean! We're not here!"
* BreakOutCharacter: Definitely the most popular character introduced outside of the original film.
* CarnivoreConfusion: Actually addressed. Normal Sharptooth would try to eat the group, but he resolves to only eat bugs in order to stay around his friends, though [[{{Squick}} they do find this disturbing as well]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Sometimes. He tends to forget that his friends are leaf-eaters and offers them insects to eat. He also tends to be naive. Lampshaded by his parents in the fifth movie.
* CompensatingForSomething: On more than one occasion, he's shown to be very sensitive about being called 'little'.
* DeclarationOfProtection: He and Ducky get trapped on a rock out crop in the middle of a ravine. With a ''Utahraptor''. He assures Ducky that he'll protect her while openly declaring to the raptor that he will fight him if he tries to hurt her.
* DoesntTrustThoseGuys: He's a frequent victim of this trope. While the Great Valley seems to have largely accepted that he’s not like other sharpteeth, not everyone is entirely comfortable having him around. Several adults refuse to let him near their children, and some kids are still scared to death whenever he gets too close—including Perie’s own siblings.
* DoubleEntendre: He just ''loves'' having friends for dinner...
* EnfantTerrible: Averted, despite being an infant Sharptooth, he's a very nice guy. However he is often mistaken for this by dinosaurs that don't know him. In fact in one episode of the TV series spinoff, it almost gets him killed.
* FourFingeredHands: In his original appearance Chomper was correctly depicted with two claws on each hand, while in the fifth film, fourteenth film, and the TV series he gained a thumb.
* GuestStarPartyMember
* IAmWhatIAm: Says this word for word in the fifth movie, pointing out that nobody has any control over what they're born as, and that people of very different races can still be close friends.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: He seems to have been very lonely on his island before his old friends stumbled upon it. He's less like this in the TV show, but he does seem still seem vulnerable to feeling like the odd one out.
* ManBitesMan: Chomper [[IncrediblyLamePun chomps]] down on Cera's tail (by instinct) in the second movie and an ''Giganotosaurus''[='=]s tail (to protect his friends) in the fifth movie.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: His parents are the only Sharptooth he actually seems to like, otherwise he actually prefers to hang with the Great Valley dinos over his own kind. Probably because other adult Sharptooth seem to attack him on sight as well.
* NervousWreck: Not to the extent that Petrie is, but Chomper does have a habit of jumping to the worst conclusions when he's scared. After his first baby tooth fell out he thought that he was literally falling apart, and he assumed that Doc, the lone dinosaur and expert fighter of vicious sharpteeth, returned to the Great Valley with the intention to kill him, even though Doc couldn't have known he lived there in the first place. However, it makes sense that Chomper would be a bit worried about a supposed hostile longneck coming to the Great Valley after he was nearly killed by a herd of them when they also mistook him for a vicious sharptooth.
* NiceGuy: He's a member of the most feared and ferocious race of creatures in the Land Before Time world-- one of the same blood that killed Littlefoot's mother and nearly killed Littlefoot himself. And yet, he's one of the happiest and most gentle characters in the entire franchise (assuming you're not an insect).
* {{Omniglot}}: He's the only known Sharptooth to be able to speak Sharptooth and plant eater. This comes in handy at times. Most dinosaur adults seem suitably suprised upon learning of this.
* OutOfFocus: In ''Journey of the Brave''. Gets left out of the rescue mission, yet surprisingly this is not treated as an issue.
* RaisedByWolves: Raised by herbivores, specifically. Even though it was only for the first few days of his life, it's had a considerable impact on him.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Averted; Chomper has very red eyes, yet he's a good and kind person. People who don't know him, however, tend to take the trope to heart as soon as they see him. It makes sense that Chomper has red eyes, he inherited them from his parents.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: In every appearance, but most obviously in the first one.
* SixthRanger: In animated series and all films beyond ''The Wisdom of Friends''.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Anyone who doesn't consider him an EnsembleDarkhorse thinks of him as this in the animated series. Of all the characters, he has the most number of episodes focused around him.
* SuperGullible: He's young with a very trusting heart and a gentle dispostion, which makes him easy to fool. Mr. Threehorn and Cera in particular delight in terrifying him with untrue stories.
* TheyHaveTheScent: Chomper's incredible sense of smell comes in handy in both the TV series and ''Journey of the Brave'', both for finding lost members of the gang and detecting oncoming threats.
* UndyingLoyalty: Dedicates his life to an altered diet so he can stay friends with his leaf eater companions.
* VegetarianCarnivore: Played with, as he occasionally samples "green food" in an effort to fit in, but finds it disgusting.
* WideEyedIdealist: After feeling isolated at being the only sharptooth in the Great Valley, Chomper convinced himself that he could to teach sharpteeth from the mysterious beyond to be nice. It doesn't work and it almost gets him killed.
* YouCanTalk: Chomper was a silent character in "The Great Valley Adventure", as he had only just hatched. The gang is surprised to hear him speak to them when they reunite in "The Mysterious Island", and in the TV show Chomper constantly hears this reaction whenever he's introduced to a new character.

Chomper, sounding close to tears, begs that sibling of Cera's, they don't hurt him, and after a few moments of marveling over the fact that they're dealing with a talking sharptooth, she and her herd decide they ''still'' want to kill him. Given the fact that Chomper is both very outnumbered and very tiny compared to the longneck herd this seems ''extremely'' out of character for Old One.
** To be fair, Old One hesitates after hearing him talk, and only goes through with it after another herd member convinces her that it's for the good of the valley (and afterward, she still seems very reluctant).

* CoolOldGuy: Eventually.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: When he was young, Mr. Thicknose was incredibly shy and had difficulty making friends. He often spent his time listening to the things that the farwalkers had to say as they passed through the Great Valley, and it was because of this that he amassed so much second-hand knowledge. His position as a keeper of wisdom in the valley is so precious to him that when he loses it he feels as though he has little else to live for.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Originally respected as the smartest resident of the Great Valley, having "Been everywhere and seen everything", it is then revealed that he gets most of his knowledge from second-hand sources. Though he does put the information he's gained about landmarks to good use later on.
* SpockSpeak: PlayedForLaughs as he explains the various ways of getting leaves to fall from a tree, like the 'Cranio-Impactus Method' that involves hitting the tree with your head.
* SternTeacher: He dislikes all of the prying questions Littlefoot keeps asking him, to the point that he tells his grandparents that he's a trouble-making influence on the rest of his class. Later, it's revealed he actually thought Littlefoot asked very good questions, but he had been afraid that it might have accidentally revealed that he really ''hadn't'' been everywhere and seen everything.
* YoungerAndHipper: The TV show has Mr. Thicknose with a significantly deeper, younger sounding voice, along with a more energetic personality. He also seems to have become far more open in his beliefs: while he refused to accept that snow could ever fall in the great valley in film eight, he seems perfectly willing to believe that there is such thing as an invisible dinosaur in the TV series.

Among hem is the only ''ever'' direct mention of the original Sharptooth to date.
* DisappearedDad: He left to find a suitable place to live before Littlefoot's birth and by the time he returned, the Great Earthshake had occurred.
* GenreSavvy: Bron is, to date, the ''only'' adult in the film series that told Littlefoot to go help fight a Sharptooth, instead of to run away. Apparently, when Littlefoot described his childhood of [[CurbStompBattle beating every Sharptooth he encountered]], Bron was actually listening.

* BadassBaritone: The leader of the tinysauruses, Big Daddy, is voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan.
* BeneathTheEarth: They initially hide in the caves underneath the Great Valley to avoid persecution from larger dinosaurs. According to Ducky in ''Stranger from the Mysterious Above'' they still live in the valley caves by the time of the TV series, despite not having any reason to hide anymore.
* CallARabbitASmeerp: Despite it being in the title of the eleventh movie and the term they’re most widely know by, they’re never actually called ‘Tinysauruses’ in the film, and instead called ‘little longnecks’. However, in an episode of the TV series Ducky does refer to them as such.
* LittlePeople: They're the smallest dinosaurs in the series, with the adults being even smaller than Ducky. Justified, as juvenile Mussaurus were indeed incredibly tiny (hence the name 'Mouse Lizard'), although in real life the adults got much bigger than how they're depicted here.
* TheScapegoat: Littlefoot blames them for eating all the tree sweets off a special tree, which is half-true but ignoring how they couldn’t have done so without him accidentally knocking them all down. Party because of his own initial fear of them, Littlefoot doesn’t realize how much trouble this causes for the tinysauruses until he gets to know some of them personally. As it turns out, getting unfairly blamed for misfortunes is something that happens to them wherever they go.
* WalkingTheEarth: Everywhere they go they’re treated like vermin, and travel from place to place to try to find somewhere they can call home. At first it seems as though the Great Valley is just as prejudiced towards them as anywhere else, but by the end of the film they elect to settle and become valley residents.

An uncommonly powerful Tyrannosaurus who's terrorizing the mysterious beyond and attempts to attack the gang on their adventures. It's because of him that Ruby and Chomper were forced to leave their families and seek refuge in the Great Valley.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Pete Sepenuk



* BigBad: Of the TV Series.
* TheDreaded: He's so feared in the Mysterious Beyond that Chomper's parents-- two capable sharpteeth who were able to defeat the vicious Plated Sharptooth-- sent their only son to the Great Valley to be safe from him.
* {{Expy}}: Of the original Sharptooth. Just like the original sharptooth, Red Claw causes such widespread fear that even other sharpteeth try to keep away from him. Also telling is his one discolored eye, likely a reference to the original sharptooth getting stabbed in the eye with a thorn.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* InformedAbility: He's said to be one of the biggest, baddest Sharptooth of all time, but he's constantly defeated by a group of children...though said children have a long record of beating Sharptooth. That said, he's never shown to be nearly as vicious as the original sharptooth.

[[folder:Screech and Thud - ''Utahraptor'']]
Two fast biters who work in tandem with Red Claw to capture prey.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Pete Sepenuk (Screech)\\
Creator/RobPaulsen (Thud)
----
* EvilIsDumb
* {{Evil Minions}}
* MakesUsEven: Not long after Chomper helps free him from a pile of rocks, Thud finds him and the rest of the gang trapped inside a small cave near a canyon wall. Instead of alerting Screech and Red Claw, he leads them in the opposite direction of where the kids are hiding.
* RaptorAttack: Besides lacking feathers, they have two fingers instead of three.

[[folder:Rhett - ''Apatosaurus'']]
A compulsive liar who dazzles Ali with fake stories about his past bravery. He appears in the TV episode ''The Brave Longneck Scheme''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/ElizabethDaily
----
* BreakTheHaughty: Brags that sharpteeth fear him...until he has to deal with an actual one. And said actual sharptooth isn't even bigger than him.
* DirtyCoward: The exact instant he's faced with a real sharptooth, he turns tail and runs. What makes this different from the other characters is that this sharptooth was about a tenth his size.
* MilesGloriosus: He brags about outlandish feats of strength and bravery to impress people. Littlefoot and Cera aren't fooled by Rhett's stories, but Ali is.

[[folder:Milo, Lydia, and Plower - ''Ceratogaulus'']]
Three mammals that live in the caves underneath the Great Valley. Appear in ''Stranger from the Mysterious Above''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/RobPaulsen (Milo)\\
Anndi [=McAfee=] (Lydia)\\
Meghan Strange (Plower)
----
* AnachronismStew: ''Ceratogaulus'' or horned gophers lived from the Milocene to the Pleistocene, ''after'' the dinosaurs became extinct.
* NayTheist: Plower was initially skeptical that Spike was "The Big Wise One", but becomes convinced when Spike inadvertently defeats the Great Hideous Beast.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Probably the first time you see horned gophers in a cartoon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Great Hideous Beast - ''Microceratus'']]
A creature that terrorizes the denizens of the caves underneath the Great Valley. Appears in ''Stranger from the Mysterious Above''

* KillerRabbit: Subverted. Due to his tiny size he can barely pose a threat to Spike, who defeats him and traps him in a rock pile by mere accident.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dara - ''Diplodocus'']]
A kindly old female longneck who travels with Doc. She appears in the TV episode ''The Lone Dinosaur Returns''

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Susan Blu
----
* LoveInterest: For Doc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Scuttle - Crustacean]]
An obstinate crab with the ability to speak the leaf-eater language. Appears in the TV episode ''March of the Sand Creepers''

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson
----
* {{Expy}}: A greedy, confrontational crab with long eyestalks, a pirate accent, a penchant for telling stories, and a chortling laugh? [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants All he's missing is a burger-joint.]]
* {{Jerkass}}
* {{Omniglot}}: He's apparently the only crab capable of communicating with dinosaurs.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Because Scuttle is the only person capable of communicating with the [[CallARabbitASmeerp sand creepers]] that have infested the Great Valley, the gang can't afford to refuse his requests. But as scuttle keeps asking for more favors, the gang's patience rapidly wanes-- particularly Cera.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Crunch - Crustacean]]
A yellow crab that attacks Spike. Appears in ''March of the Sand Creepers''

* ArchEnemy: To Spike, despite Ducky thinking otherwise. Crunch keeps snapping painfully onto Spike's nose whenever the oppertunity presents itself. Spike eventually gets so irritated that he chases Crunch out of the valley.
* {{Jerkass}}
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Swooper - ''Harpactognathus'']]
A blind old flier who's lived for years in a cave at Black Rock. He eventually settles in the Great Valley after being guided there by Petrie and Guido. Appears in ''The Hermit of Black Rock''.

-->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Creator/JessHarnell
----
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: All those years of living as a hermit (and possibly as well as his blindness) have caused him to become acquainted with some cave formations, even giving them names. This is even lampshaded by Guido.
* CoolOldGuy
* PteroSoarer

[[folder:Skip - Mammal]]

* {{Badass}}: Being the leader of his own herd doesn't mean he's gotten soft in how to fend off Sharpteeth. Must run in the family.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Her portrayal has.... several problems, The least of which being a shark fin being on her head for ''no reason''. In this movie she is essentially just a sauropod with flippers. Plesiosaurs were only very distantly related to dinosaurs at all, much less longnecks. She's also improbably huge.
