Should Rehtt be considered the villain of "Brave Longneck Scheme"?

In that case, possibly antagonist would fit better. An antagonist is the "opposing force" or "opposing character" of a story. They don't have to be villains and they can even be quite nice. The qualifications of an antagonist is simply being an obstacle, or even the main obstacle, for the protagonist.

For example, in Brother Bear, Denahi can be considered the antagonist as he is actively trying to hunt down Kenai due to a misunderstanding. But Denahi isn't evil, and his motivations are sympathetic.

With Rhett, he does not come across as evil, more just a jerk. He acts like a show-offy kid who just wants to impress Ali. He doesn't really have any malicious goals in mind; he's just selfish and stubborn. Hardly a villain, but still antagonistic.

Definitely not. Like the gang, Rhett is just a kid who has his own lessons to learn. :)

Yep, antagonist is a better term here. A villain does have evil things in mind while an antagonist is indeed an "obstacle" (that puts it very well, DH :))
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

Barely scratches antagonist. He's a troubled child who doesn't know any better. How is he evil?
Formally known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

I'm a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. I'm currently working on a modern analysis of the deleted scenes in The Land Before Time, as new discoveries have been made in the last few years.
I love sharpteeth, especially the Horned Sharptooth, the Plated Sharptooth/Plates and the original Sharptooth.
I'm an admin on The Land Before Time Wiki, particularly the "Sharptooth admin" I suppose you could say.

Its hard for me to tell. If Rhett was a villian, he would be someone more evil in the series, like if he hated Littlefoot and his friends for finding out that his stories were fake. On my thought, he must've made up his stories because he didn't have a interesting life when he was younger. Dont'ca think?

I'm going to echo everyone else and say that he's more of an antagonist than a villain. He didn't have any evil intentions or anything that would make him a villain. He was just a d*****bag, so that would make him an antagonist.

If Rhett got dumped by Ali from there on and decided to become Littlefoot's love interest... and Rhett takes that badly, swears to take revenge one day and many years later assaults Littlefoot in a fight for life or death, then you could call him a villain

(and now that I think about it, that could be a decent fanfic idea  :idea  :lol )

it's so cliche. XD

Wait, so lol, now I remember in one if my mid stories, when Sharptooth went back, Rhett "accidentally" kicked Littlefoot out from safe cover.

I never thought of him as a villain when I first saw the episode he appeared in. Just someone who needed to know his place.

Well for one if they ever do anything based on the cast when they're older, I can imagine Rhett pulling a Ronno on Littlefoot and Ali, but as it currently stands with him being a kid, he's just innocent until proven guilty. Right now he's harmless and a bit of a jerk who doesn't know any better because he's a kid. Though to be fair his herd was more villainous with how they tried to flat out murder Chomper despite him when Rhett tattled on him, considering Chomper is just a child who could barely harm anybody despite being an infantile Tyrannosaurus rex, whom as we know is one of the more dangerous large theropods we know exist and thus killing one while they're young does make some sense, but not in the narrative of The Land Before Time in the case of Chomper in particular. Doc himself mentions the fact himself in his cameo episode, but even then he's relatively chill by the end of it on the matter.
