Handy Feet

Go To
It's either her feet or her mouth, and this causes less back strain.
"Rocky, you have to learn how to write! [Golf Ball] and I know how to. No arms is no excuse!"

One of the hallmarks of being primates is that our limbs were adapted for life in the treetops. Both our front and hind limbs were modified to grasp branches. When the ancestors of modern human beings descended to the ground and started to walk upright, our front limbs remained as mobile as ever, but the back limbs were adapted for stability and aren't normally used for manipulation.

However, this character is capable of using their feet with the dexterity of a human hand. There are two flavors to it:

1) Character that have human-like feet, but they have developed enough skill and precision to use them as a pair of extra hands. The reason behind it varies from case to case; maybe their hands have been immobilized or can't be used in a particular situation, possibly they are trying to multi-task, or perhaps they're just trying to be outlandish and/or goofy. In the most extreme case, when the character doesn't have hands at all, a nimble pair of feet is the second best thing one can rely on to replace their function. Paradoxically, they rarely need a lot of special equipment and are usually just as able-bodied as regular people despite missing two limbs.

2) Characters which have special lower appendages adapted to be used as hands. Characters based on non-human primates tend to display this trait, (as their feet are more or less an extra pair of hands) but there are many variations of it, including creatures with Bizarre Alien Biology, robots/cyborgs of various kinds, and humans with Bio-Augmentation. It's also not uncommon for them to exclusively use their "feet" to manipulate their environment because their upper limbs are not appropriate for the task, such in the case of winged characters that lack Feather Fingers. This is a common trait among arboreal beings and ones adapted for life in zero gravity, as both need to navigate complex three-dimensional environments while spending little or no time walking on flat ground.

Expect this character to be the kind of individual who prefers to go barefoot so as to keep their feet from being restrained.

    Real Life 
  • People born without or who lose their arms at an age young enough to adapt typically use their feet for hands as a matter of course. Examples include American aerobics instructor and bodybuilder Barbara Guerra, who demonstrated driving a car and shopping for groceries with her feet on 60 Minutes, Chinese actress Lei Qingyao, star (and inspiration) of Invisible Wings and Italian dancer Simona Aztori, all of whom can be seen demonstrating their pedal dexterity on YouTube. Other people do have arms, but due to a disability, they are immobilized and are of little use. They can also learn to adapt to using their feet in place of their hands. Christy Brown was born with severe cerebal palsy who could only move his left foot, but became a writer and artist, whose autobiography My Left Foot inspired the film of the same name.
  • Some able-bodied people with flexible toes and decent balance will still use their feet to pick up small items as a simpler alternative to bending over.

  • A Not Safe for Work example of this would be a Footjob. A female adult film star/prostitute may use her feet to pleasure a man's penis. Some can even interlock their toes while doing it. Others can do it only using one foot.

Adapted Feet

    Anime & Manga 
  • Monster Musume: Papi the Harpy zig-zags this trope, as her legs are shown to be strong, dexterous, and viciously clawed, while her wings contain a thumb-like digit capable of grasping things if not being particularly dexterous.

    Comic Books 
  • Budroxifinicus' species in Copperhead have three large toes, one of which is opposable.
  • Justice Society of America: The Ultra-Humanite can grab things with his feet, as he has the body of a gorilla.
  • X-Men: The Beast has this as a part of his mutation, as does his teammate Nightcrawler, although his feet are shaped differently.

    Film — Animated 
  • The Jungle Book (1967): King Louie can use his feet like hands, which makes sense, since he's an orangutan.
  • Early concept material for the first Monsters, Inc. had Mike be mostly the same as his final appearance, except he doesn't have arms. In an early concept animation, he is shown handling the prototype Sulley character Johnson's ties with his feet.
  • In Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, Ponyo's feet act like hands. One scene has her toes wiggle very much like fingers, while Sosuke attempts to do the same to no avail.

    Film — Live-Action 
  • Æon Flux included Sithandra from the original animated series. See below for details.
  • Ivan's armor suit in Iron Man 2 could grab things with its feet.

    • Rio Durant in Solo is a Ardennian, a species with four arms and prehensile feet. He uses his extra arms and feet to easily multitask while piloting the starship.
  • In X-Men: First Class, Beast appears human other than his dexterous feet.

Examples by author: Examples by title:
  • The main character of Ancestral Night by Elizabeth Bear has had her feet augmented into "afthands" since she spends most of her time in zero-G, moving about a ship by grabbing and pulling herself along. When on a station with Centrifugal Gravity, or a Precursor ship with actual Artificial Gravity, she complains about having to spend time awkwardly and sometimes painfully walking on her afthands due to this design choice, but after some time adapts and has less trouble.
  • In the Bas-Lag Cycle novels, wyrmen are bat-like urban scroungers and errand-runners, whose feet serve as hands.
  • The Librarian of Unseen University in Discworld was transformed by a magical accident into an Erudite Orangutan, and has since refused any offers to turn him back into a human. Being able to hang from the ceiling from one limb and shelve three books at once with the others is one of the many advantages.
  • In Dr. Franklin's Island, Miranda and Semi are turned into a bird and a rayfish monster, respectively, both losing the use of their hands. Miranda, as a bird, has feet with long toes that resemble hands and can use them and her beak to good effect. Semi is less fortunate, but her feet remain as vestigial flippers and she's eventually able to use them to lever a sluice grate in her tank open.
  • Eight Worlds includes humans who have had their lower limbs surgically modified into "peds", which function as a second set of arms. A human with peds can't really walk anymore, so this modification isn't much use on a planet, but for humans who live in the zero-G environment of Saturn's Rings, it's extremely useful.
  • The thranx in Humanx Commonwealth are an eight-limbed species of Insectoid Aliens. They have two true-hands, four true-feet, and two hand-feet between them that (as the name suggests) can be used for either locomotion or carrying or manipulating objects.
  • Sam from InCryptid is a Fūri, a Yokai (Japanese cryptid) whose natural form is somewhere between a human and a monkey. He also has a Prehensile Tail. He's very good on the trapeze, and usually goes barefoot.
  • The Gamerans in Old Man's War, being humans space-adapted to the point of no longer seeming at all human, are turtle-looking creatures with hands for each limb.
  • Unsurprisingly, used in the original Planet of the Apes novel. Ulysse (the protagonist, roughly equivalent to Taylor in the film) is still slightly astonished to see it. Not used as often in the films, though, due to the apes being people in ape suits in most of them — their feet were just regular human feet in vaguely hand-shaped shoes.
  • In James Tiptree Jr.'s short story "The Snows Are Melted, the Snows Are Gone" a young woman from a post-apocalyptic high-tech but mutation-plagued society has no arms, but manages quite well with her feet and the help of her uncannily intelligent wolf companion.
  • This Alien Shore: The Salvationers, one of the groups of Variants, have prehensile feet that let them climb the support struts of the metroliner's observation dome.
  • Uglies: The "surge-monkeys" who Aya and the Sly Girls track in the fourth book of the series are humans who have modified their bodies in preparation for life in zero gravity to the point that their feet resemble a second set of hands:
    But the strangest thing was the inhuman's feet. Bare and misshapen, they looked almost like hands, their long toes curled up like a dead spider's legs.
  • Vorkosigan Saga: The Quaddies are a genetically modified Human Subspecies designed to live in free-fall. They have arms (and hands) instead of legs, but are otherwise basically human. They have a very hard time getting around in gravity, and use floater chairs when they can't avoid it.
  • Well World: The Twosh are bowling pin shaped creatures with only two limbs, which they use as hands or feet as the situation requires.

    Tabletop Games

  • Eclipse Phase has the "prehensile feet" augmentation, bouncer morphs, neo-hominids, and neo-avians come standard with them.
  • Prehensile Toes is an adaptation your character can have in GURPS Bio-Tech. It's standard for Spacer parahumans.

  • LEGO monkey minifigures use standard minifigure arms and hands for not only their arms and hands, but also their legs and feet.

    Video Games 
  • Lanky from Donkey Kong 64 is an inversion! He can use his hands to walk up (and even run up) steep slopes.
  • The Legend of Zelda:
  • While they may not be fully prehensile, Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has no problems wielding a sword with his feet after he breaks one of his cybernetic arms to free himself from some rubble and loses the other while trying to hold back Outer Haven. It helps that his legs are no longer human, and it is unclear whether he can pull off similar maneuvers in mundane tasks, but it is still pretty impressive. The ability returns in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, in which Raiden has several combos which involve holding his sword in his feet.
  • Being a gorilla, Winston in Overwatch can use his feet as readily as his hands. In the "Recall" trailer, he types on his keyboard with his feet while he has food in his hands.
  • The mole minions from Shovel Knight have hand-like feet. One of them was a mini boss in the King Of Cards expansion.

    Web Animation 

  • The Fuzzy Princess: One strip shows Chiro the bat carrying a box with her feet.
  • Latchkey Kingdom: Implied with Ash. Their feet are clearly hands, complete with finger-like toes and an opposable thumb-toe, although they have yet to use their feet as hands in the comic.
  • L's Empire: Shadowpalm has a second pair of hands for his feet (it's mentioned as being a mutation). This actually hinders him since the Mana Drain effects of his Supernatural Martial Arts requires feet flat on the ground.
  • Out-of-Placers: The Yinglets have no anatomical difference between their hands and feet, which means they can grasp things equally well with either kind of appendage.
  • S.S.D.D.: A cybernetically-augmented spacer has prosthetic feet that resemble bird talons.

    Western Animation

    Real Life 
  • Many arboreal animals, especially Primates and birds. The feet of birds of prey are not only handy, they're also deadly.
  • Drepanosaurs were a clade of reptiles from the Triassic with hands and feet designed for grasping. The name means "sickle lizard", in reference to their curved claws being used for grasping. They also had one on their tails.
