Small Foot is a female GoBot.[2] Small Foot is one of Leader-1's most trusted soldiers. A tracker, what she lacks in size she more than makes up for in heart and determination. Small Foot can often be seen kicking around with Scooter but she idolizes Leader-1 and is often found fighting by his side. Trouble often finds her wherever she is. Sometimes with all of her determination Small Foot becomes impulsive and eager to please the older and more experienced Guardian soldiers.

Small Foot was featured in one of the early GoBots commercials. [3]

Small Foot turns into a Toyota Hilux pickup truck, the same alternate mode as the Transformers Hoist, Lift-Ticket and Trailbreaker.
