* ''Angry Birds Fight!'' (released June 2015), which pits the birds against each other in one-on-one fights as well as the pigs, using a puzzle fighting system where your offense and defense are determined by how well you do in a MatchThreeGame using the birds as pieces on the game board. It incorporates the items and customizing features from ''Epic.'' Has confirmed to be ending in November 2017.[[note]]The two above games as well as ''Action!'' below are the only shut-down games to be released worldwide, as every game below was still in the soft-launch stage when they were shut down.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArtEvolution:
** In ''Angry Birds Rio'' and the now-discontinued ''Angry Birds Chrome'', both the birds and pigs are given more refined sprites. These sprites are now used in newer versions of the original game.
** Starting with ''VideoGame/AngryBirdsGo'', the characters have their designs from the ''WesternAnimation/AngryBirdsToons'' series. Some of the older games like ''Seasons'' and the original also used the ''Toons'' designs, but only on menus and cutscenes.
** Starting with ''Angry Birds Action'', the characters have their designs from ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBirdsMovie''. Some of the previous games like ''Angry Birds Friends'' and ''VideoGame/AngryBirdsEpic'' also used the movie designs, but only on their loading screens and some menus. So far, the only ''Angry Birds'' game released since ''Action'' not to use the movie designs was ''Angry Birds Blast'' (not counting the soft-launched games like ''Ace Fighter'' and ''Islands'', which are now discontinued).

* FaceRevealingTurn: Stella finds Luca on Halloween after being attacked by the Shaman Pig and his minions, only to find he's already been turned into a pig minion himself. [[spoiler:This is done again with Gale.[[/spoiler]]

* Hope Spot: When the Shaman Pig awakens and has turned most of the birds and pigs into his own piggy minions, Stella uses herself as bait while Poppy destroyed the stone speakers to put the horde back to sleep... except it doesn't work for long and Poppy gets turned. A second one when she's cornered and found Gale, and we think we might have a EnemyMine moment on our hands...[[spoiler:until she turns around and is revealed to be assimilated too.]]



* OffModel: The animated shorts were done by an outside studio prior to Rovio's taking over that feature, causing all the birds to be a bit OffModel and OutOfCharacter. For instance, compare [[http://images.wikia.com/angrybirds/images/b/ba/YellowBird.png how the yellow bird normally looks]] to [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111016024946/angrybirds/images/8/8d/258px-Untitled.jpg its appearance in the early shorts]].

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:The Shaman Pig succeeds in assimilating everyone into his horde (including Stella and Gale) and the scene breaks into a wild dance of the assimilated birds and pigs. Then we cut to dawn, where everyone is normal again and the Shaman Pig and his minions have returned to their rest. And the short ends with the Shaman Pig's laughter, making it clear he has simply returned to his rest. In other words, if the spell hadn't only lasted till dawn, (or maybe the Shaman Pig needed to return to his rest, this would have been the end of everyone on the island as we know them.[[/spoiler]]



When they're back to normal, they're disgusted and flee from each other.

** Played for terror in an episode of Stella's second season when her flock accidentally awakens a Shaman Pig who turns pigs into his gold wearing minions, is not affected by Gale's crown, and turns members of Stella's flock into piggy minions.
