For much of LBT 2, Strut actually tries to calm Ozzy down.
Strut: Calm down Ozzy. It was just an egg.
Ozzy: It was NOT just an egg you imbecile, it was our dinner! (Whacks Strut with his tail)
Strut: Do you think the Sharptooth got those kids?
Ozzy: I hope so!
Anyway, one gets the impression that Strut would rather be eating green food than stealing eggs, chasing five meddlings kids and their Sharptooth hatchling, etc. But Ozzy keeps making him come along and Strut isn’t brave enough to stand up to Ozzy.
However, later on, when Ozzy is coming after the kids, it almost seems that Strut is laughing maniacally.
Also, later on, it is STRUT who suggests throwing Littlefoot off the Great Wall (though perhaps that was a mercy move for Littlefoot, as Strut knew Ozzy was going to do something unpleasant no matter what, and Strut may have been unnerved by the lava bath suggestion earlier.) Also, Strut tries to strangle Chomper.
So, do you think Strut truly is bad or just suffering from being around his nasty brother?
I mean, Strut seems that, if not for Ozzy, he’d probably just help himself to the green food in the Great Valley. Being bullied by Ozzy for being different than him has GOT to be having an effect on Strut.
I kind of feel sorry for Strut. As for Ozzy, he’s about in the same category as Sierra: wishing kids get eaten by Sharpteeth, planning to harm Littlefoot in some nasty way with those claws of his, planning to give the kids lava baths, and being the one actually about to throw Littlefoot off the Great Wall. Clearly murdering a bunch of kids isn’t below him if he gets his egg. At least in Sierra’s case, it was a promise of a stone that supposedly gave one lots of power. In Ozzy’s case, it was just over a HATCHED (as far as Ozzy and the others knew), egg, and the bad luck that the kids were yelling (about Chomper trying to find him) at the time when Ozzy and Strut tried to steal eggs from a Flyer nest.
I still think that Strut has an evil side to him, but he’s content just eating green food and not having to mess with all the trouble of trying to get an egg. If his brother weren’t around, he wouldn’t have done all those bad things to the gang. His brother is a bad influence.
I don’t like Strut. He’s not as bad as Ozzy, but he’s still not a character that I like. Still, I’d rather run into him than a sharptooth I guess (excluding Chomper).
Until he suggested killing Littlefoot, I was ok with him or was tolerant enough of him. I think he kinda crossed the line of “Let’s throw him off the Great Wall.” though.
