Main Characters


Littlefoot, voiced by Gabriel Damon (I), Scott McAfee (II-IV), Brandon LaCroix (V), Thomas Dekker (singing voice, V; singing and speaking, VI-IX), Alec Medlock (X), Aaron Spann (XI), Nick Price (XII), Cody Arens (XIII-TV series) and Anthony Skillman (singing voice, XIII-TV series), is a brown Apatosaurus, called a "Longneck" in the films. He is the central character of the film The Land Before Time and most of its sequels. His mother died in a Sharptooth attack in the film The Land Before Time, and he is raised by his grandparents after making the journey to the Great Valley with his friends. Littlefoot is very caring of his friends, and acts as their leader. He is friends with Cera, a Triceratops, Ducky, a Saurolophus, Petrie, a Pteranodon, and Spike, a Stegosaurus. He meets Chomper, a Tyrannosaurus, in The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure, and a new friend, Ruby, an Oviraptor in The Land Before Time TV series.


Cera, voiced by Candace Hutson (I-IV) and Anndi McAfee (V-TV series) is a peach Triceratops referred to as a bossy "Three-Horn" and a friend of Littlefoot. Cera tries her best to show no fear, often bragging about her accomplishments and courage. She has difficulty showing weakness, a trait that her father has largely ingrained in her. The original film portrayed her as very arrogant and bigoted towards other species (again, learned from her father), but in later films her bigotry has greatly lessened. Her lessons frequently revolve around not jumping to conclusions, especially in judgment of other dinosaurs.


Ducky, voiced by Judith Barsi (I), Heather Hogan (II-IV) and Aria Noelle Curzon (V-TV series), is a green Saurolophus, known colloquially as a "Big Mouth", "Duck Bill", or a "Swimmer." Closer in design to a Saurolophus, Ducky nonetheless is consistently identified in official material as a Parasaurolophus, or in more ambiguous manners like a "perky, amphibious thing" by Hal Hinson of the Washington Post. She was incorrectly referred to as a platypus in the book, The Animated Films of Don Bluth that was retrieved on January 23, 2007. When speaking, Ducky does not generally use contractions or generalizations, though she does on a few occasions when singing. Ducky is sweet, caring and innocent, and tries to make peace during group conflicts, but is also very naive, to the point that she is mystified and confused when she finds that she feels anger, and has to ask Cera how one expresses anger. Often she will end her sentences with a convivial "Yep, yep, yep.", which has become a staple of her character, and was written on the gravestone of her original voice actress. She is very friendly and caring towards her friends, but seems to be particularly close to Petrie and in the tv series she is sometimes greedy when she finds rocks full of broken crystals.


Petrie, voiced by Will Ryan (I) and Jeff Bennett (II-TV series), is a brown Pteranodon, also called a "Flyer" in the series. He is talkative, but speaks in a broken English, usually omitting linking verbs (is, are, am) using "me" in place of "I", and referring to himself in third person. He mostly played the part of the comic relief in the original film, but grew to be more of a regular character as the series progressed, even getting a film centered partly around himself, in "Great Day Of The Flyers", in which he is pressured by his siblings to fly normally, in formation, rather than the freestyle flying he usually does. He is unusual among the main characters, in that he is the only young dinosaur to not have a childish-sounding voice (aside from Spike the few times we hear his voice), instead having a more cartoony voice. This was due to the producers of the original film finding it difficult to decide on a voice for him, when it was suggested that his voice be similar to Digit from the previous Don Bluth movie, An American Tail. While he is generally a close friend of all the main characters, it has been noted that his relationship with Ducky seems to be extra close, possibly due to the pair both being small compared to the other children.


Spike, voiced anonymously (I) and Rob Paulsen (II-TV series), is a green Stegosaurus known as a "Spiketail". He is the second youngest member of the group; Chomper being the only one younger than he is. His hatching was witnessed by Ducky alone, and he was "adopted" by Ducky for the journey to the Great Valley, and by Ducky's family upon arrival at the Great Valley. He is the hungriest member of the group, constantly eating any plants in his sight, regardless of the trouble it often lands him in. He rarely speaks, although under some periods of stress, he may suddenly speak a word or phrase. He has mumbled inarticulately on many other occasions, and often scat sings or hums during song sequences. In the TV episode "Through the Eyes of a Spiketail", the viewer finally gets the opportunity to see the world from his point of view. He speaks (mentally) with a low voice, similar to his regular voice. In this episode, we learn that he cannot understand anything people say other than names and foods (Hearing everything else as inarticulate growling and jabbering), sees everything in shades of pink, and apparently chooses not to speak (rather than being incapable of speaking), so that he can avoid arguing with people, and so that he can hear the "song" of every plant around him, before deciding whether or not to eat them. We also learn that he does not actually like going off on adventures, but does so because the rest of his friends do. Spike was added to appeal to a growing number of mentally handicapped viewers who had in recent years become a significant portion of cartoon video consumers. As the series progressed, he gained a strong following among fans of the series.


Chomper, voiced by Rob Paulsen (II), Cannon Young (V), and Max Burkholder (TV series) (Ikue Ōtani in the Japanese version of the TV series) is an indigo Tyrannosaurus, which is one of many species of carnivorous dinosaurs called "sharpteeth" in the series. He appears as a baby in the second film, hatching from an egg, whom Littlefoot and the others attempt to raise. But his parents appear and he leaves with them, still holding the other children as friends. In the 5th film, he has grown older and can talk. He is bilingual, speaking both the language of the herbivorous dinosaurs and the language of the carnivorous dinosaurs, apparently because he was raised first by Littlefoot, and later his sharptooth parents. He returns as a regular character in the TV show, apparently living in secret in the mountain caves surrounding the great Valley, along with Ruby, in order to escape Red Claw, a sharptooth who is terrorising the Mysterious Beyond.


Ruby, voiced by Meghan Strange, is a pink Oviraptor, which is called a fast-runner in the show. Introduced in The Land Before Time TV series, she mentions that Chomper's parents gave her the responsibility to care for Chomper when the two of them ran to the Great Valley to escape Red Claw and his fast biters. She generally plays the part of the older sister to Chomper and the others, usually staying calm and level-headed. But she has peculiar speaking habits. She will sometimes end a sentence by saying exactly what she just said, but backwards, and often speaks in what appear to be riddles, but are actually very obvious points, such as saying that something "Sounds like something I've never heard before". Ruby has not appeared in any of the films, and as of yet, it is unlikely that she ever will.

Secondary Characters

Mr. Thicknose

Mr. Thicknose, voiced by Robert Guillaume (VIII) and Dorian Harewood (TV series), is an elderly Pachyrhinosaurus. In his first appearance, The Land Before Time VIII: The Big Freeze, he is a very respected resident of the Great Valley; having convinced the others that he has been everywhere and seen everything. When snow falls in the valley for the first known time, and he is unable to explain it, the other adults lose faith in him. He later reveals to the children, to whom he acted as a teacher, that most of his knowledge comes from secondary sources.

The character's only appearance in the films, to date, was in the eighth movie, but he has become a regular in the TV series.


Mo, voiced by Rob Paulsen, is a colorful Ophthalmosaurus who first appeared in The Land Before Time IX: Journey to Big Water. The character is bilingual, speaking a broken form of the herbivore language, as well as his native dolphin-like language. He is very playful, and becomes popular with the main characters aside from Cera, who is at first annoyed by his playful antics.

Though the character's only prominent roles are in the ninth movie and in the TV episode "The Missing Fast-Water Adventure", he has made a few cameo appearances in the films. In The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration, he jumps out of the water during the "Adventuring" musical number, and he says "And fly!" during the song "Flip, Flap and Fly" in The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers.


Guido, voiced by Rob Paulsen, is a teal blue Microraptor gui, who first appears in The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers. He is convinced that he's the only one of his kind, having never seen another of his kind before. His origins are unknown, as he apparently has no idea what he is or where he came from. Though he tries to fly, he can only glide for a brief period of time. He reappears in the TV episode "The Hermit of Black Rock", in which he and Petrie meet an old blind purple Pteranodon named Swooper (voiced by Jess Harnell), and learns to fly properly. He often appears neurotic or panicky at times, and easily confused.


Shorty, voiced by Brandon DePaul (X) and Elizabeth Daily (TV series), is a young, dark green Brachiosaurus who first appeared in The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration, and reappeared in the TV episode "The Big Longneck Test." Bron originally found Shorty with a litter of much younger Camarasaurus he was defending, shortly before being joined by the other longnecks in the region. Shorty bullies Littlefoot at first, upon meeting him in the film, and becomes particularly antagonistic towards his younger brother after taking away Bron's attention, being Bron's actual born son. He later plans to run away from the herd, but Littlefoot interjects, hoping to propose peace with his older brother; an offer Shorty gladly accepts. Littlefoot asks Bron to adopt Shorty at the end of the film. In the TV episode "The Big Longneck Test," Shorty appears as Littlefoot's older brother.

Tippy and his Mother

Tippy, voiced by Jeremy Suarez (VIII) and Cree Summer (TV series), is a pink Stegosaurus who first appeared in The Land Before Time VIII: The Big Freeze, in which his herd migrates into the Great Valley, temporarily, after which he quickly befriends Spike. Unlike Spike, Tippy, though with limited use of words, is very vocal.

His mother is a kindly female Stegosaurus, who invites Spike to spend time with her herd upon learning that he has been adopted by another species and has not spent time around his species. She later invites him to travel with the herd when they leave the valley in search of food during the freeze. She and her son, together with their herd, reappear in the episode "The Forbidden Friendship".

The Tinysauruses

The Tinysauruses are an underground living multi-color colony of kitten sized Mussauruses who appeared in The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses. Their leader is an old cranky Mussaurus with a huge voice named Big Daddy (voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan) along with his daughter Lizzie (voiced by Cree Summer). Other individuals include Skitter (voiced by Leigh Kelly), Dusty (voiced by Ashley Rose Orr) and Rocky (voiced by Nika Futterman).

The tinysauruses only reappear slightly in The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers, seen in a tunnel during the song "Flip, Flap and Fly" as well as mentioned in the episode "Stranger From the Mysterious Above".


Ali, voiced by Juliana Hansen (IV) and Nika Futterman (TV series), is a young female purple Apatosaurus, who first appeared in The Land Before Time IV: Journey Through the Mists. She quickly befriends Littlefoot, and volunteers to take him to the Land of Mists - her former home - to retrieve the Night Flower for his sick grandfather, but is wary of the other main characters at first, having been used to only the company of longnecks due to her herd constantly moving around. As the film progresses, she begins to embrace the concept of diverse-species friendships, although she remains somewhat shy. Ali appears again in the TV episode "The Brave Longneck Scheme"

Mrs. Twoped

Mrs. Twoped was an unseen friend of Tria around the time of Tricia's hatching. After Tricia ran for the very first time in The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers, Tria remarked that she could not wait to tell Mrs. Twoped about it. Due to her last name, Mrs. Twoped can be presumed to be a two-legged dinosaur. In the Swedish translation, her name is "Fru. Rörhuvud", which translates to "Mrs. Tubehead", so she could be a Parasaurolophus.


Doc, voiced by Kris Kristofferson (VI) and Jeff Bennett (TV series) is a wandering elderly Diplodocus who goes "where the road takes him". He is taciturn, and not forthcoming of his past. In his first appearance, he saves Littlefoot shortly after arriving in the Great Valley, and Littlefoot idolizes him after getting the idea that he is the legendary "Lone Dinosaur", who according to a story he heard from his Grandpa, saved the Great Valley from a particularly powerful Sharptooth long before; Doc's own statements about having visited the Great Valley before, as well as a large scar on the right side of his face resembling an identical one that the Lone Dinosaur received from the Sharptooth he defeated, support Littlefoot's ideas. When the Great Valley residents accuse Doc of bringing a recent string of misfortune to the valley (Including, among other things, a tornado), Littlefoot defends him to the point of putting him above his own grandfather. At the end of the film, after Doc and Grandpa Longneck defeat a marauding Brown Allosaurus and a Tyrannosaurus Rex together, Doc leaves the valley. Littlefoots begs him not to go too far, in case the valley may need a hero again, but Doc states that he already has a hero, his Grandfather.

Doc appears again in the TV episode "The Lone Dinosaur Returns", in which it is revealed that he now has a lady-friend, who he claims was going to meet him in the valley. During the episode, he encounters Chomper, a young sharptooth whom Littlefoot befriended, and is appalled that Littlefoot is fraternizing with Sharpteeth. However, when he learns that Chomper helped in saving his lady-friend's life, he apologizes and accepts that while Chomper may be a sharptooth, he is not like the other ones.

Supporting Characters

Grandpa and Grandma Longneck

Grandpa and Grandma Longneck, voiced by Kenneth Mars (II - present) and Linda Gary (II - IV) and Miriam Flynn (V - present), are two older bluish-grey Apatosauruses and are Littlefoot's grandparents. They have been his primary caregivers since his mother, their daughter, tragically died in the first film. They act as parents to Littlefoot, giving him advice when needed and take their responsibility of protecting Littlefoot very seriously. Grandpa Longneck, together with Topsy, serves as a leader for the combined herds of the Great Valley, although they often argue, with Topsy usually taking extreme measures, while Grandpa tries to keep everything calm. Together with Grandma Longneck, he serves as a voice of reason for the residents. The two of them are very enlightened to other species, and supportive of Littlefoot's diverse-species friends. Littlefoot has a strong bond with his grandfather, and looks up to him as an idol. Both of them are slow to anger unlike Topsy. However, Grandpa has shown numerous times (And Grandma has shown once), that he can fight just as well as any dinosaur when Littlefoot is in danger, often taking on sharpteeth one on one.

Grandma and Grandpa Longneck appear in all of the Land Before Time films, and in many episodes of the TV series. Their names have never been given, as the characters, including each other, refer to them as "Grandma and Grandpa," or "Longneck". Grandpa and Grandma are Bron's parents-in-law, and Bron refers to them as "Papa and Mama Longneck"


Bron, voiced by Kiefer Sutherland (X) and Cam Clarke (TV series), is a brown Apatosaurus, and the father of Littlefoot. He first appears in The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration, when Littlefoot meets him for the first time. Bron reveals that he was separated from his wife and parents-in-law before Littlefoot was born. He never stopped trying to find Littlefoot; in the process, he came across dozens of longnecks who looked to him for protection, and thus became the leader of a herd. Although Littlefoot and Bron bond well together after their meeting, Littlefoot realizes that even though he wants to live with his father, he cannot bring himself to leave his friends or his grandparents, as well as reminding Bron that to some of his herd, especially Shorty, he is more than just a leader. So they go their separate ways, promising that they will meet again.

Bron later appears in the TV episode "The Big Longneck Test", in which he administers a series of difficult tasks to Littlefoot, to determine whether he would be a good leader.

Chomper's Parents

Chomper's Parents are a pair of Tyrannosaurus Rex carnivorous "sharpteeth" theropods, who are after Red Claw, the most prominent Sharptooth in the series, having been featured in both of Chomper's film appearances. They are sexually dimorphic, with Chomper's father being a dark green and his mother being a bright green color. They are shown to be very protective of their son; breaking into the Great Valley to search for him after his egg was accidentally taken into the valley by Littlefoot and the gang in The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure, and fighting to protect him from an aggressive foreign sharptooth (a Green Giganotosaurus) in The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island. Although the two initially treat Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, and Spike as prey, they promise to never eat the protagonists as a reward for the children's rescue of Chomper from the aforementioned sharptooth. They are last seen with their son waving farewell to Littlefoot and his friends once they are returning to their families, implying that they will see them again.

Ducky and Spike's Parents

Ducky and Spike's mother, voiced by Tress MacNeille, is a Saurolophus and has appeared in most of the 13 movies that have debuted so far. Ducky and Spike's father is rarely seen but has appeared now and again, for example in the background The Land Before Time VIII: The Big Freeze. Their mother loves all her children and is very attentive. She is popular among Littlefoot and his friends for these reasons and is treated with respect by all children and adults in the Great Valley. She occasionally has doubts on how to raise Spike, whether in keeping with her own values or with those of his racial heritage. This was seen in The Land Before Time VIII: The Big Freeze when a stegosaur herd met and befriended Spike. She let him go with the herd to learn "his kind;" however when Spike fell through ice, it was she who rescued her grateful son by diving into the ice that breaks.

Ducky and Spike's Siblings

There are at least 14 young siblings. Although they look much like Ducky, they lack her sense of adventure, preferring to stay at home with their mother. Ever since Ducky introduced them to "our new brother, Spike" at the end of the first film, all the Big Mouths have happily accepted him as part of the family, even if they do not understand him as well as Ducky does. The total 14 came in two clutches, as in the first film; Ducky's nest contained about half a dozen eggs. Later, in the Great Valley Adventure, Ducky's Parents are shown to have another nest, with about another half dozen or so. The film ended with the new clutch hatching.

Littlefoot's Mother

(Deceased) Appearing only in the original The Land Before Time, Littlefoot's Mother, voiced by Helen Shaver, was shown to be a very loving mother to her only living son, giving up her life early on in the film to save Littlefoot and Cera from the Sharptooth, who severely wounded her in battle, causing her to die from her injuries later. She was not bigoted towards other species, although she told Littlefoot that the different herds usually avoided each other because their ancestors had done so for a long time. Before her death, she informed Littlefoot on how to reach the Great Valley, and stayed by him in spirit to guide him on the journey there. Littlefoot's Mother is shown in a flashback scene in the tenth film, although she is portrayed as being blue in color, whereas in the first film, she was brown. She was the daughter of Grandma and Grandpa Longneck.

Petrie's Mother

Petrie's Mother, voiced by Tress MacNeille, is a dark blue color Pteranodon who appears in the entire series of The Land Before Time. She is Pterano's sister. She has majority appearances in The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, The Land Before Time VII: The Stone of Cold Fire and The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers. In the seventh film, she flies to the top of the Mysterious Beyond to find Petrie and Ducky, blaming Pterano for being a bad leader.


Topsy, voiced by Burke Byrnes (I) and John Ingle (II - present, TV series), is a gray Triceratops, and the father of Cera. He was credited as "Daddy Topps" in the first film and is otherwise referred to as "Mr. Threehorn". In The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses, the character Tria refers to him by the pet name "Topsy," much to the annoyance of his daughter Cera.

Topsy is generally portrayed as being belligerent, domineering and bigoted, although this theme has been slightly downplayed in the later films, and a softer side to his personality has been more frequently used. Sometimes he does wrong things like leading his daughter to the flames in his third film called The Time of the Great Giving.


Tria, voiced by Camryn Manheim (XI - XII) and Jessica Gee (XIII, TV series), is a pink "Three-Horn" (Triceratops) who is now Topsy's mate. It is revealed in The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses that she and Topps (Cera's father) met when they were younger, and are reunited in the film - much to the dismay of Cera, who is very used to being the center of her father's attention. Despite some false starts, however, Cera and her new stepmother do manage to get along in the end. Unlike Topps, Tria immediately finds the Tinysauruses cute when she comes across a wandering pair, which is why she separates from him for a short time. Tria and Topps have a child in The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers.

Cera's Siblings

Topps and his first mate are shown to have had several children on at least two occasions. The first time can only be inferred; the existence of Dinah and Dana - Cera's niece and nephew and Topps' grandchildren - implies that Topps and his mate had at least one child before Cera's egg laying. Cera also had several nestmates; primarily sisters. As of The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers, she has a half-sister named Tricia; the offspring of her father and stepmother, Tria.



Kosh (a.k.a. Mr. Clubtail), voiced by Rob Paulsen (III - XII, minus V), Jeff Bennett (V, TV Series) and Pete Sepenuk (TV Series), is a gluttonous, pink Ankylosaurus who appears reduces exile in some of the The Land Before Time films and the TV series. He is almost always seen eating, and usually ends up having his meal disturbed or interrupted in some way. He is also rather quick to anger, though maybe not as much as Nod's father. He is apparently on good terms with him, usually being the first to agree with Topsy, but often argues with him too. His first name was revealed in the end credits of the TV episode "The Star Day Celebration".


An elderly Turquoise colored Polacanthus. Voice by Pat Hingle, who only appeared in the original The Land Before Time (which Hingle also narrated). He spoke to Littlefoot and consoled him after the Sharptooth killed his mother.

Hidden Runner

Hidden Runner is a green and blue Troodon. Voiced by Rob Paulsen (TV series). The only appearance, so far, as been in the TV series episode "The Spooky Nighttime Adventure". He (or she) has the ability to blend in with its habitat due to its multi-colored markings, giving the impression that it can turn invisible.


the mute Yellow Belly, is considered the "Wise One". Voiced by Pete Sepenuk. Foobie makes friends with Spike the spiketail.

Loofah and Doofah

Loofah and Doofah are two "Yellow-Bellies" Beipiaosaurus who first appeared in The Land Before Time XIII: The Wisdom of Friends. Loofah is voiced by Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Doofah is voiced by Sandra Oh. Doofah is the cheerful leader of a herd of Yellow-Bellies who, in the film, are looking for the Berry Valley. Loofah is a prominent male in his herd, and is equally friendly and optimistic. Both of them have short term memory loss, and are motivated by impulsive needs.



Sharptooth is depicted as an extremely strong, athletic and physically durable Tyrannosaurus Rex. Littlefoot blinds Sharptooth in one eye after accidentally striking him with a thorny vine. Later while his mother is fighting Sharptooth, he mortally wounds her in the back and neck. After falling through an opening canyon, he is believed to be dead until Cera wakes him unconsciously reliving to be comotose. He continues to give the children chase for the remainder of the film, until Littlefoot and the others defeat him by drowning him in a lake.

Swimming Sharptooth

The first swimming sharptooth encountered by the gang was a Megalodon in The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island. The second swimming sharptooth encountered was in The Land Before Time IX: Journey to Big Water, where Mo was trapped with a Liopleurodon.

Ozzy & Strut

Ozzy and Strut are two brother Struthiomimus (called egg-nappers or egg-stealers) that appeared as main antagonists in the second movie, The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure. They are also one of the fewer instances in the movies and TV series where they actually say the Scientific name of their species; Ozzy calls he and Strut Struthiomimus in the duo's song routine. Ozzy is the intelligent one, obsessed with eating eggs while Strut is clumsy and has more interest in plants. Ozzy has orange eyes and Strut has yellow eyes. Ozzy tries hard to wean Strut away from plants and onto eggs. They seem to live in the Mysterious Beyond in a cave, driven out of the valley by Chomper's parents (after they tried to throw Chomper off the great wall as well). They also captured Littlefoot in The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure and decided to throw him off a cliff. With a British accent, Ozzy is voiced by Jeff Bennett and Strut is voiced by Rob Paulsen.

Hyp, Mutt & Nod

A trio of bullying adolescent dinosaurs, who first appeared in The Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving, in which they continually pick on the main characters and bring trouble to them. In particular, after their musical number "When You're Big", Littlefoot and cera remind the trio that when all of them reach adulthood, the three bullies will actually be the smallest of them. He responds by threatening that he will make sure that Littlefoot and his friends never make it to adulthood. They act tough to appear braver and "bigger" than they really are, even refusing to acknowledge that Littlefoot and his friends saved their lives on one occasion. However, at the end of the film, they appear to have become more friendly and kind. It is also implied near the end of the film that the leader of the trio, Hyp a Hypsilophodon, behaves in this manner because of aggressive treatment he receives from his father. His lackey, Mutt a Muttaburrasaurus, is shown to be much softer-hearted, as well as much more dim-witted, usually adding nothing to a conversation but a simple ", yeah!". Hyp's other lackey, Nod a Nodosaurus, is slightly hyperactive, frequently emphasizing what Hyp says, as well as allowing him to ride on his back.

The trio appear again in the season one finale of the television series, "The Great Egg Adventure". In the film, they were voiced by Whit Hetford (Hyp), Jeff Bennett (Mutt), and Scott Menville (Nod). (III - minus V), In the TV series, Bennett and Menville resume their roles, but Hyp is voiced by Mikey Kelley. They appear to not have changed much from their original bullying personae, though their designs have softened slightly (as do most character designs in the series).

Dil and Ichy

Dil and Ichy and are the antagonists of The Land Before Time IV: Journey Through the Mists. Dil is a nearly blind, elderly female teal green Deinosuchus (called a big-mouthed bellydragger) and Ichy is an annoying male Light Blue colour Ichthyornis (called a sharpbeak). Dil has red eyes and Ichy has yellow eyes. Frequently, both get in arguments about how they are better off without each other. Ichy and Dil finally separated from each other on purpose when Dil mistakenly attacked Ichy. Immediately afterwards, Dil was chased by an Elasmosaurus. Dil is voiced by Tress MacNeille and Ichy is voiced by Jeff Bennett.

Red Claw

Red Claw, voiced by Pete Sepenuk, is a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the primary antagonist in the TV series. He has a distinctive scar from his left eye to his left hand, with the blood apparently colouring one of his claws bright red; similarly to the T. Rex Scarface, from Land of the Lost (though Scarface's scar was on the right). Chomper and Ruby refer to Red Claw as the biggest and meanest of all Sharpteeth, and it has been speculated by fans that he may be the sharptooth from the original film, who somehow survived, save for the boulder that was pushed ontop of him giving him a distinct scar. However, it has also been noted that he appears to be significantly weaker and less dangerous than the original Sharptooth (though this may be due to the toning down of violence in the TV series)and everybody in the mysterious beyond always gets killed by him.

Screech & Thud

Screech & Thud, voiced by Pete Sepenuk and Rob Paulsen, respectively, are two Velociraptors companions of Red Claw. (Howler was the original name for Screech in the TV pilot, but the character was renamed later on.) Chomper and Ruby state at one point that Red Claw is always nearby when Screech and Thud are present, but in the later episodes they are seen hunting without him.


Pterano is the brother of Petrie's mother, the uncle of Petrie and his siblings and one of the main antagonists of The Land Before Time VII: The Stone of Cold Fire.Many years before the film Pterano tried to led a group of dinosaurs to The Great Valley but ended up leading them to a group of Deinonychus who attacked the group killing them all except Pterano who survived having escaped while the other dinosaurs fought on. He was then exiled from the herd as punishment for abandoning his followers though he insisted that the massacre was not his fault. After reuniting with his sister in The Great Valley Pterano and his henchmen Rinkus and Sierra began searching for The Stone Of Cold Fire, a comet he thought would grant him magical powers. Because Ducky had been eavesdropping on their plans and because they saw her as a useful object in their mission the trio kidnapped her during the night and carried her off to the Mysterious Beyond. Littlefoot and his friends followed them to save Ducky. While Pterano began to gradully realize the mistakes he failed in his mission when it was found out that the stone did not contain any magic powers and woud up putting Petrie and the others in in danger, However he ended up saving them all at the end. He was once again banished by Grandpa Longneck and the other adults to the Mysterious Beyond for a reduced period of five cold times (Five winter years). Pterano appears to have turely changed his ways having accepted his responsiblity for his actions and hoping to make up for them when he returns to the herd. Pterano has not been seen since The Stone of Cold Fire but in The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration a lone Pterosaur resembling Pterano is seen when Littlefoot and his grandparents leave the valley. He is voiced by Michael York.

Rinkus and Sierra

Rinkus (a Rhamphorhynchus) and Sierra (a Cearadactylus) are the henchmen of Pterano and two of the main antagonists of The Land Before Time VII: The Stone of Cold Fire. They were originally friends of Pterano but appear more sinister than him especially Sierra. They assist in kidnapping Ducky and later attempt to betray Pterano when the Stone of Cold Fire turned out to be a powerless meteorite. They are believed to have died at the end of the film after volcanic eruption caused the stone to explode, due to the force of expolsion they are seen careening through the air back to the hollow of the mountain where they had camped the previous night quite singed and bruised. Rinkus is voiced by Rob Paulsen and Sierra is voiced by Jim Cummings.
