One herd had only a single baby–their last hope for the future. And they called him...Littlefoot.
~ Narration, The Land Before Time.
What do you mean if I can't see you? I can always see you.
~ Littlefoot.

Young Littlefoot (a.k.a. Loveable Littlefoot, or just Littlefoot, as he is called on the official Land Before Time website and by fans), is the main protagonist of The Land Before Time franchise, and one of many characters to appear in every movie and TV episode.

He is the son of Bron and an unnamed female Brontosaurus, the grandson of Grandma and Grandpa Longneck, and the leader of his team. He is an anthropomorphic Brontosaurus, which is one of many creatures referred to as "Longnecks" by the characters in the franchise. He is the central character in the series, though not always the largest role. Due to his skill at befriending others, he is also friends with many other creatures. Littlefoot is earnest and adventurous, and is always leading his friends into new adventures, overcoming obstacles, and learning important lessons on friendship and teamwork.

Journey to the Great Valley

Littlefoot had been on a journey to go to the Great Valley when he met Cera, a young Triceratops. However, her father separated them. Later on, he played with Cera again, only to be attacked by a large Tyrannosaurus rex, known as Sharptooth. Littlefoot accidently blinds the Sharptooth in one eye with a thorn when temporarily tangled in thorny vines, and then Littlefoot's mother arrived and fought Sharptooth. After a long battle Sharptooth fell into a chasm. Cera was separated from her parents while Littlefoot was separated from his grandparents. His mother died in front of him, having been injured by Sharptooth, but not before giving him the directions to the Great Valley.

He met with Cera again, but she didn't want to go with him, and slid down the same chasm Sharptooth fell in. There, she saw Sharptooth, who had woken up. By then, Littlefoot had made two friends: Ducky the Saurolophus and Petrie the Pteranodon. Cera lied about fighting Sharptooth, and accidently flung Ducky into a patch of grass, where see saw a Stegosaurus egg that hatched into Spike, who joined them.

Sharptooth eventually attacked again and they narrowly escaped. Cera then took over and led the group in a different direction while Littlefoot went in the direction his mother told him to go. He then came back and rescued the group from various disasters, saving Ducky and Spike from lava and Petrie from a tar pit. They then rescued Cera from a group of Pachycephalosauruses. Embarrassed, Cera left.

The group saw Sharptooth and attempted to push a boulder down on him. Sharptooth then jumped up the cliff, but Cera came and pushed the boulder, sending Sharptooth falling into the lake where he supposedly drowned. Littlefoot gave up hope of reaching the Great Valley, but his mother's spirit came and led him to the Great Valley, where they were reunited with their families.

Personality

Littlefoot is humble, rational, lighthearted and very adventurous. He is big-hearted, able to create friendships with dinosaurs regardless of their differences, as it was shown with Chomper being a sharptooth or with tinysaurus in the 11th film. Littlefoot is very protective towards his friends, going as far as risking himself to rescue his friends.

Littlefoot often takes very difficult moments when he loses someone from his family or a friend, like the moment he lost his mother, where for a moment after his mother passes on, Littlefoot accuses his mother who passed on, also in the ninth movie when Littlefoot blames himself when he believes that his mother has passed on, so that's why Littlefoot is so protective of his friends or his family not ready to abandon them even in the most risky moments.

Relationship

Cera

Cera is the first dinosaur that knows Littlefoot out of his kind since the original movie, however he did not create friendship ties the first time they saw each other because Cera was very proud but when they traveled together looking for the Great Valley, Littlefoot and Cera they have already started to create a friendship, they are both best friends, but often they argue for differences of beliefs and in some cases they even reach the point where they fight physically but despite having several arguments, both do not hesitate their friendship between one with the other supporting each other most of the time.

Ducky

Ducky is the second dinosaur that Littlefoot knew, he met her on his trip to the Great Valley, where she became his first friend followed with Petrie, Spike and Cera. Littlefoot and Ducky are very good friends and always rely on what they do, in the original movie one night when Ducky and the gang sleep next to Cera except for Littlefoot believing that she is very brave to face a Sharptooth while Littlefoot sleeps alone elsewhere, Ducky is the first to realize that Littlefoot is alone and goes back to sleep next to him.

Petrie

Petrie is the third dinosaur that Littlefoot knew, his friendship with him is very smooth compared to Cera and Ducky but in the eleventh film Petrie admits between tears that Littlefoot is his best friend.

Spike

Spike is the last dinosaur that Littlefoot knew outside his species, his friendship with him is also smooth.

Chomper

The friendship in Littlefoot and Chomper is almost like that of Littlefoot and Cera, since Littlefoot was with Chomper when he was barely a baby in the second movie and did not waver his trust and friendship in Chomper even though his mother was killed by a sharptooth Littlefoot always defended Chomper from the beliefs of his friends that someday it would be a sharptooth like any other, the Littlefoot and Chomper link is almost fraternal as much as the link Chomper has with Ruby.

Ruby

We have not seen the link that Littlefoot has with Ruby but they are good friends, since both are friendly and always support their friends in almost everything.

Guido

Littlefoot and Guido have been close friends. Guido has never seen another creature like himself. He is more of a comic relief character.
