Tippy is a Stegosaurus (or "Spiketail"), who is Spike's playful companion during the stegosaur migration in The Land Before Time VIII: The Big Freeze. When a stegosaur herd moves into the Great Valley, Spike immediately becomes close friends with Tippy. Unlike Spike, Tippy is vocal; his catchphrase is "Fun, fun, fun!", similar to Ducky's "Yep, Yep, Yep". Outside of VIII, Tippy and his herd have appeared in the TV series episode, "The Forbidden Friendship".
Though he can speak, he does not speak in complete sentences. He is playful and has a large appetite.
- Tippy is most likely younger than Spike. This is because he is smaller than Spike, among other reasons.
- Tippy doesn't appear to fully know how to talk yet according to some comments of the characters. (This is another reason for the assumption above.)
