Quote "It's payback time! Blueberry style!"

Dot is the tritagonist in Disney/Pixar's 1998 film A Bug's Life and is the deuteragonist in its sequel from A Bug's Life 2: The Revenge of the Grasshopper. She is voiced by Hayden Panettiere.


Dot is the younger daughter of the Queen of the Ant Colony and is a princess. Her older sister Atta is the the heir to the throne. Dot is initially Flik's only friend and supporter. She is a member of the Blueberries, a group similar to a scout troop. Like her sister and mother, she has wings, but they are not fully grown in due to her age. By the end of the film however, she is capable of flight.

A Bug's Life

Dot is introduced as Flik's only supporter. When Hopper threatens her, Flik stands up to him on her behalf. However, this only causes Hopper to double the order of food that the ant's must collect for the grasshoppers. Later on in the film, trying to save the gay ladybug Francis whose leg is broken by a rock, Dot is almost eaten by a bird, but is saved by Flik and the "warriors" (actually circus bugs) that he has recruited.

Dot and her friends later help to build a fake bird meant to scare off Hopper. After Flik is banished from the colony, Dot overhears Hopper plotting to squish the Queen. She manages to catch up to Flik and convince him and the circus bugs to put their previous plan into action. Dot helps to fly the bird, but the bird is revealed as a fake by P.T. Flea, the ringmaster of the circus, who burns it with a match and gasoline forcing her, Flik and the rest of the Blueberries to get out after the bird crashes on the ground.

At the end of the film, Dot is given the princess crown after Atta becomes Queen.
