    The Flock 

Red Bird / Red

  • All of the Other Reindeer: The Angry Birds Movie gives him a backstory on what he was like before the arrival of the pigs - he was one of the few birds in a peaceful island community who had a Hair-Trigger Temper, and the other birds (except for some) shunned and treated him like shit for it.
  • Berserk Button: Don't steal the eggs if you don't want him flying after your hide.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Sports impressive ones.
  • Colour-Coded Emotions: His body is colored red, which represents anger. He's also the biggest Papa Wolf of the flock, so he's often angry.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In The Angry Birds Movie, he administers this to a young chick who was disturbing his sleep by kicking a soccer ball against his house - he comes outside, smiles at him...then punts him into the ocean.
  • Easter Egg: If you tap the screen after you launch him, he'll make a battle cry.
  • Fiery Redhead: He's a red bird who's constantly angry at the pigs for stealing his eggs.
  • Good Is Not Nice: In the movie, he has no intention in doing anything friendly, but he's still a good-hearted bird who's just edgier than other birds.
  • Good Is Not Soft
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: In The Angry Birds Movie, he is depicted as having this, which turned him into an outcast in a peaceful island bird community.
  • The Hero: The main protagonist of the Angry Birds series.
    • He's classed as a Knight in Angry Birds Epic.
    • It should be noted that, in the Transformers game, he plays Optimus freakin' Prime.
  • Hot-Blooded: In the movie, he admit that he's a "passionate" bird.
  • The Leader: Is this in all incarnations. Typically leans on the headstrong type, though he has shown elements of levelheadedness and mastermind when strategizing how best to attack the pigs.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: In "Angry Birds 2", he gains the special ability to let loose a battle cry that topples pig buildings.
  • Master of None:
    • He has no special abilities, and is of average weight. This makes him usually the least useful bird for almost all situations.
    • Subverted in Red's Mighty Feathers, where the Mighty Eagle gave him magical feathers that finally grant him a special ability. Said special ability involves dashing directly towards the pigs in the game.
  • Papa Wolf: He's very protective of the eggs, to the point of going berserk over the slightest threat. So are all of the other birds, but episodes like "Off Duty" and "Tooth Royal" illustrate that Red is the most serious about the eggs' safety, while the others would rather goof off unless the eggs are actually threatened.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He's not as bad as Terence, as he does smile sometimes, but his default expression is often this.
  • Pragmatic Hero
  • Properly Paranoid: If you're Red, even harmless things can be interpreted as pigs attempting to steal their eggs.
    • In The Angry Birds Movie, he's the only bird who is suspicious of the newly arriving pigs, thinking they have ulterior motives for coming to their island.
  • Red Is Heroic: Literally, considering his name.
  • Red Is Violent: Mostly seen in Toons and in The Movie.
  • Sensitive Fowl and Manly Bird: Manly bird to Chuck's sensitive fowl.
  • Series Mascot: Whenever you think of Angry Birds, this guy comes first to mind.
  • The Stoic: In the movie, he rarely laughs or cries.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To Terence.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Even taking this literally for laughs when his appearance in Space resembles Wolverine closely.

Blue Bird / The Blues

Yellow Bird / Chuck

  • Ambiguously Bi: In the movie, Chuck has an obvious gay crush on the Mighty Eagle (to the point of having an Imagine Spot where the Eagle is twerking in a Village People-like cowboy outfit before signing Chuck's bare chest) but, after the piggies steal the eggs, he is quick to suggestively suggest that the female birds should mate with him to replace the stolen eggs.
  • Catch Phrase: "Lili!" whenever he's about to launch from a slingshot. Sometimes, other birds would say this when idle.
  • Expy: In his Space incarnation, he is wearing a red visor, apparently a tribute either to Cyclops or a Cylon Centurion.
  • Fragile Speedster: His ability makes him the fastest bird, but a glancing touch on an obstacle before he gets where you want him and he's wasted.
  • Gravity Sucks: His ability also zigzags the trope in Space. Gravity affects him as long as he's just flying or after he hits something, but his speed boost makes him immune to gravity.
  • Hot-Blooded: Not as much as Red or Bomb, though.
  • Jerkass: In Angry Birds Toons, he is often depicted as a smug and arrogant little shit. This bites him in the ass during several episodes.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his flaws, he genuinely cares about his friends and the safety of the eggs.
  • The Lancer: Often serves this to Red in Angry Birds Toons.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Feminine Boy to Matilda's Masculine Girl, at least in the early games.
  • Meaningful Name: Chuck works best against wood. Hence, "woodchuck"
    • Or alternatively, his speed increase is akin to "chucking", a term for throwing something at a fast speed.
  • Mood-Swinger: In the movie, Chuck's attitude can move from ecstatic to sad to sensual back to ecstatic in a single scene, throwing his fellow birds off.
  • Motor Mouth: Running is not the only thing he does fast in the film version.
  • Palette Swap: He's purple in Space. Everywhere else, he's traditionally yellow.
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Pride: His main flaw.
  • Roboteching: He can do this in Space.
  • Sensitive Fowl and Manly Bird: The Sensitive Fowl to Red's Manly Bird.
  • Super Speed: Chuck's special ability. In both the Angry Birds Toons and film, he's fast enough to enter "Chuck Time."
  • Time Master: In Angry Birds Toons, he has a headband that allows him to slow down time. So far it has only appeared in three episodes: "Chuck Time", "Thunder Chuck", and "The Bird Who Cried Pig".
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Bomb.

Black Bird / Bomb

  • Action Bomb
  • Big Fun: He's the biggest bird in the flock (after Terence), and also the guy you can count on if you want to have a good time.
  • The Big Guy: Whenever Terrence is not around.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: In the animated series, he's probably one of the most enthusiastic birds.
  • Brains and Brawn: Possibly in Space and Toons. He is the brains to Terence's brawn.
  • Dark is Not Evil: Despite being a black bird, he's one of the playable heroes.
  • Glass Cannon: Whenever he hits something, he will explode in a few seconds. You can also make him explode manually by tapping the screen.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Tends to have this. He blows up even when his ice cream melts!
  • Irony: Despite his hatred for pigs, he stands up for a minion pig when the other pigs bully him in this anti-bullying video.
  • Meaningful Name: Guess what his name means.
  • Non-Fatal Explosions: Despite being a bird who can make himself explode, he always appears as if nothing happened.
  • Pre-Explosion Glow: When he glows, take cover!
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Enjoys drinking herbal teas and raking sand in his Zen garden. They actually serve as calming methods due to his Hair-Trigger Temper.
  • Smart Bomb: Played straight with his Shock and Awe secondary power, which was introduced in the "Short Fuse" episode of the original game.
  • The Smart Guy: Of the Genius Bruiser variety.
  • The Strategist: He has been this occasionally in Toons. One time, he tricked Corporal Pig into falling in love with an exploding female pig.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Due to his ability of blowing himself up.
  • Supreme Chef: Seems to be this, though he uses "new-age" cooking techniques, which none of the birds understand or like.
  • Taking You with Me: His main shtick when dealing with the pigs. Because he's a bomb in bird form, whatever is in range gets blown up, too.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Chuck.

White Bird / Matilda

  • Adaptational Superpower Change: In the games, she lays exploding eggs; in the movie, she shoots fireballs out of her butt.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Some fans had been mistaking her as a male. Averted with her Toons design which gave her Tertiary Sexual Characteristics to make her unambiguously female.
  • Berserk Button: "Cordon Bleugh!" reveals that she does not like having her cooking mocked or ridiculed. When a bunch of pigs who just tried to steal the eggs taste her soup and make no effort to hide how much they love it, Matilda is so overjoyed to see someone enjoying her cooking that she decides not to give them the beating she was about to unleash and simply bounces away happily.
  • Blush Sticker: Sports really noticeable ones.
  • Characterization Marches On: In Angry Birds Toons, she appears more feminine than her usual masculine image, likely to prevent Viewer Gender Confusion.
  • The Chicken
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She has strangely been left out of Space. She's also always absent in the trailers, with the reason of her unpopularity unknown. Bonus points for being put on a nest.
  • Clucking Angry: Some people might think that she's a snow bunting since she looks more like one. She's actually a chicken.
  • Death from Above: By dropping an exploding egg, launching herself upward at an angle.
  • Genki Bird: Sort of.
  • Lady Not Appearing In This Trailer: She never appears in any Angry Birds video trailer, and her only prominent appearance was in a Chinese cross promotion for Coca Cola and the summer Olympic games.
  • Lethal Chef: Her cooking is deeply loathed by the birds, and is so terrible that it can kill plants. Averted with the pigs, who think she's a Supreme Chef.
  • Light is Good: A white bird and one of the playable heroes.
  • Mama Bear: Is just as protective towards the eggs as the other birds.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Masculine Girl to Chuck's Feminine Boy, at least in the early games.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: She doesn't look like one, but she holds the same values of pacifism and ecological harmony as stereotypical hippies, and her vision of the eggs in "Egg Sounds" are more blatantly obvious ones.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: She's been obsessed with ice hockey in one Toons episode.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Many fans did not realize that she was a girl in the early games.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Of the tomboyish One of the Boys variety. Averted when Stella joins the flock.
  • Stone Wall: Her brute force would be ineffective, unless she drops an egg.
  • Team Mom: In the 'Meet the Flock' video for Angry Birds Toons, she is depicted as more obviously female and performs tasks like serving food to the other birds. Bonus points for being the tallest of the main five birds in the flock.
  • Technical Pacifist: She isn't as confrontational as the other Angry Birds, but she still fights the pigs when they try to steal the eggs.
  • Throw Down A Weaponized Offspring: Bonus points for Stuff Blowing Up with the dropped egg.
  • Tomboy and Girly Bird: The Tomboy to Stella's Girly Bird.

Boomerang Bird / Hal

Big Brother Bird / Terence

  • Acrofatic: Sort of, but he can teleport.
  • The Aloner: Despite being a part of the main flock, he frequently isolates himself. In the Angry Birds official website, he can be seen standing far off to the side while the other birds gather around their eggs.
  • Antihero: In Angry Birds Toons, he's depicted as an antisocial, bitter, and miserable bird who loathes the rest of the birds, especially Chuck, whom he absolutely detests, even though he sometimes helps the flock in defending the eggs.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: He doesn't speak much, but actions speak louder than words...
  • Big Brother Instinct: Mainly towards Red, but also the other birds.
  • Big Brother Mentor
  • Big Eater: As stated in his bio in the Angry Birds official website.
  • The Big Guy: Most likely. He's the biggest bird in the flock.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Just like Red.
  • Brains and Brawn: The brawn to Bomb's brains.
  • The Comically Serious: In the Angry Birds Christmas comics, where he dresses up as Santa Claus and carries a sign saying "Ho ho ho!" with him.
    • In the animated short "Gardening with Terence", he is made into a flower garden by Matilda after refusing to budge multiple times.
  • Death Glare: His default expression, especially when it's applied to pigs.
  • The Dreaded: Shown to be this in the cartoons by the pigs. That doesn't stop him from giving every single good pig a Christmas present.
    • He also sort of has this effect on the other birds, who feel kind of awkward and intimidated around him.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his imposing figure, he genuinely wants to help the birds protect the eggs from the pigs.
  • Made of Iron: Able to survive having a giant boulder thrown at him and being blown up with dynamite in "Gardening with Terence".
  • Mighty Glacier: He travels slowly when defying gravity. This makes up for his very hard-hitting brute force.
    • Averted in Toons, he teleports.
  • No Social Skills: Keeps himself apart from the other birds and finds it hard to socialize with them.
  • Older and Wiser: Terence is what happens when birds like Red grow up.
  • Palette Swap: He was green in Space. Everywhere else, he's traditionally red... like Red himself.
    • His cousin, Tony, looks like a light blue, fluffier Terence.
  • Perpetual Frowner: You can count the smiles he makes with one hand.
  • The Quiet One: Generally speaking.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: In "Run Chuck Run", he seems to constantly get ahead of Chuck without even having seemed to move. Even when Chuck is near the finish line with none of the other racers in sight, he manages to cross it before Chuck realizes it.
  • The Stoic: Even moreso than Red, and is capable of only ONE expression.
  • Stout Strength: Good luck trying to get him to move.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To Red. He also has a cousin named Tony from Angry Birds Seasons who is basically a light blue Terence with a more feathery body.
  • Tranquil Fury: Unlike Red, who is a screaming feathery ball of fury, Terence never loses his stoic expression, even while fighting the pigs.
  • The Voiceless: Well, he doesn't speak. No, not even in the comics or movie, where the other birds are Suddenly Voiced.
    • He does growl as Wingman, though.

Orange Bird / Bubbles

  • Berserk Button: Don't eat his candy.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Even more so than the Blues, based on the fact he's a Sweet Tooth Tagalong Kid.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Of the Pintsized Powerhouse variety. He's fast (somewhere between Red's normal speed and Chuck's fast speed), packs a surprising punch for his size (he can easily smash through wood and ice), and his ballooning ability can cause a lot of damage if used properly.
  • Perpetual Smiler: His default expression is a cheerful smile (or as close to one as a beak can get).
  • Sweet Tooth:
    • Every trailer he's been in involves him eating candy.
    • In the games, he doesn't appear until a candy level is released.
    • His only appearances in Angry Birds Toons are the Halloween episodes.
  • Tagalong Kid
  • Tempting Fate: In the second Halloween special, he ate the candy that turns anyone into a kraken monster

Silver Bird / Silver

  • Action Girl: Definitely.
  • All There in the Manual: According to supplementary material for Angry Birds 2, she was raised by pigs. They were going to eat her egg, but she unexpectedly hatched in front of them, so they adopted her as their child. Her being raised by them is why she has pig-like teeth when she smiles.
  • Death from Above: Much like Poppy from Stella, with more looping and less drills.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Her backstory consisted of her unexpectedly hatching while the pigs were cooking her egg, and being subsequently adopted and raised by said pigs.
  • Irony: Her ability of diving to the ground after doing a backwards loop was first done years ago by the Diveosaurus in the Angry Birds clone Trucks And Skulls.
  • Naďve Newcomer: In "Angry Birds 2".
  • Noble Bird of Prey: Is based on the peregrine falcon.

Ice Bird (appears only in Angry Birds Space)

Mighty Eagle

  • Big Good: Of the entire flock.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Sports some impressive eyebrows.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: It costs 99 cents to unlock him in the first Angry Birds.
  • The Dreaded: His size alone strikes fear within the pigs. At first, even the other birds feared him. In Angry Birds 2, when you use the Sardines boost, any pigs still onscreen adopt an Oh, Crap! face seconds before his shadow swoops in.
  • Expy: Two in particular, which are Mighty Dragon and Space Eagle. Also Wingman to a point.
  • Lightning Bruiser: It's on and off the screen in less than a second and will annihilate any obstacles in its path, not to mention killing all the pigs.
  • The Mentor: The character who guides the player in Angry Birds: Epic.
  • Not Good With Other Birds Than Possibly The Blues
  • Perpetual Molt: His flight path is marked by a trail of feathers.
  • Bird of Mass Destruction: What follows his fort disintegrating cannon ball is an earthquake that destroys every pig that he misses, which effectively makes losing a level with him in use impossible.
    • In Angry Birds 2, he dosen't even touch the pigs or their fortress, but the wind force caused by him flying by is still enough to destroy them all.
  • Shadow of Impending Doom: He casts one on the level before impact.
  • Smart Bomb
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Sardines, of course. That's what summons him.

    Stella's Flock 

Pink Bird / Stella


  • All Drummers Are Animals: She can get a little too carried away with her drums.
  • Attention Whore: Has shades of this, as her bio states that she hates being alone and likes having someone there to talk to because she loves the sound of her own voice.
  • Berserk Button: Don't tell her to be quiet.
  • The Big Girl: In Genki Bird form.
  • Blush Sticker: Has really large ones.
  • Death from Above: Her special ability has her do this.
  • Innocently Insensitive: She once dressed her friend Dahlia up as a pig while she was sleeping for a prank. Her friends (and Dahlia herself) were not amused.
  • The Prankster: She loves to make people laugh, and often plays practical jokes. Her bio even has her refer to herself as this trope.
    Poppy: "You've been Poppied!"
  • This Is a Drill: Her ability launches her downwards, "drilling" through blocks.
  • X Meets Y: This bird combines the Plucky Comic Relief attitude of Chuck and the tomboyishness of Matilda.





  • Ambition Is Evil: What prevents her from rejoining her former friends.
  • Ax-Crazy: Once she gets the golden egg, she sees nothing wrong with turning multiple pig minions into gold just for irking her, and was ready to do the same to Stella.
  • Berserk Button: Don't touch her crown. It's only for her to wear.
  • Contralto of Danger: Has a significantly deep and sultry voice compared to Stella's flock, who all sound bright and happy in comparison.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Species differences otherwise, Gale is one to the King Pig.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Her opening trailer has her throwing out a minion pig for wearing a poorly-made mask resembling her.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Nope. She's even referred to as "Bad Princess" in the game.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Stella.
  • Evil Former Friend: A former friend of Stella's who sided with the pigs and became blinded by pride, power, and greed.
  • Evil Overlooker: Some promotional art depict her as this, either looking down on the pigs she commands or on Stella's flock.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She used to be part of the flock until she found the pig crown and the power that came with it went to her head.
  • Feathered Fiend: To Stella and her flock.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Probably the same, if not worse than King Pig from the original series. Several collectible photos from Angry Birds Stella depict her using the pigs for her own amusement.
  • High Collar of Doom: More jarring because she doesn't have a cape... or, you know, a body. However, she didn't have one when she was part of Stella's flock.
  • Incoming Ham/Evil Is Hammy: If her opening trailer is anything to go by...
  • I've Come Too Far: Part of her wants to make amends with Stella and rejoin her flock, but she is too focused on her own pride and lust for power to actually do anything about it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She actually wants to be part of Stella's flock, but she is blinded by greed.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: She rescued Stella in "To the Bitter End", but she still wants the golden egg and when she goes back to get it, she is seemingly crushed by falling rocks.
  • Meaningful Name: Gale is the Scottish way to refer to a bird's cry. It also means "stranger" in Irish, which denotes her status as an enemy of Stella's who was once her dearest friend.
  • Narcissist: Her bio explicitly states that vanity is one of her character traits.
  • Oblivious to Love: Specifically, she's ignorant of the HUGE crush Handsome Pig has for her.
  • Purple Is Powerful: She's a purple bird who became princess of the pigs after she got her crown.
  • Villain Team-Up: Gale is able to command the Pigs thanks to the crown she wears on her head, effectively allying herself with the Bad Piggies.
  • We Used to Be Friends: To Stella.

    The Bad Piggies 

King Pig

  • Adipose Rex
  • Art Evolution: Started off in the games with the same body type as all the other pigs (just larger), but has taken on a more plump, jowlier appearance in the comics and animated series, to hammer home his Fat Idiot traits.
  • Bad Boss
  • Big Eater: He's this all the time.
  • Fat Bastard: In the Moon Festival comic, he's only like this when he's hungry. Basically, all the time.
  • Fat Idiot: It's clear that he's not very bright and is only king because of his heritage.
  • Gluttonous Pig: How fitting.
  • The Good King: In the comic, he actually misses his subjects once he's on the moon so when he came back home with Chuck, he throws a party for all of his subjects.
  • King Mook: Of the pigs.
  • Large and in Charge: Definitely the largest of the pigs, and is their king.
  • Large Ham: In Angry Birds Toons, both literally and figuratively.
  • Made of Iron: Even in the games where the pigs aren't that hard to kill.
  • Nice Guy: He's actually kind when he's not hungry. But he's only like this once in a blue moon.
  • Nice Hat: He almost never takes his crown off and when he does, none of his subjects recognize him.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In the Halloween comic, it's very obvious that he's the leader of a secret society, with one pig even lampshading it.
  • Secret Circle of Secrets: In the Halloween comic, he's the leader of one called "The Druids of Warthos."

Corporal Pig

  • Art Evolution: Started off as a regular pig in a helmet. Now he's greener and grumpier looking with a worn out helmet that covers his eyes.
  • Cool Helmet: His helmet makes him harder to destroy.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Is this to the pigs, always shouting at them.

Foreman Pig

  • Art Evolution: He looks older and wrinklier now than he did initially. He's also blind in one eye.
  • Badass Mustache: He even had it as a piglet!
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Was apparently able to make a Humongous Mecha in "Slap Happy" all by himself (albeit after stealing the plans from somebody else). Unfortunately, he isn't enough of one to prevent it from Going Horribly Wrong...
  • Mismatched Eyes: Has a black eye and a blue eye. The blue eye is blind.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: In the comic tie-in to Angry Birds Transformers he, as Lockdown Pig, takes a while adjusting to his form, ending up transforming into a toilet for issue one and part of issue two. He soon becomes useless to the pigs when he falls over and can no longer contribute. When he finds out how to Transform he easily overpowers Grimlock (who was taking on the other Deceptihogs and winning) and one-shots Bumblebee when the rest of the Autobirds show up.
  • Secret Circle of Secrets: In the Halloween comic, he's the right-hand man of the king, who's the leader of it.

Chef Pig

  • Art Evolution: In the early games, he's just a normal pig with a chef's hat. Later additions gave him a Snidely Whiplash mustache and a constant smug expression. In the CGI film The Angry Birds Movie, he was redesigned to look more like his early appearances, with the addition of having a body and an additional chef's apron and spatula.
  • Big Bad: In Angry Birds Epic, who goes by the name Wizpig.note 
  • Evil Chancellor: Seems to have this relationship to King Pig (see The Starscream below).
  • Evil Chef: With the Snidely Whiplash mustache to come with it.
  • Evil Genius: He comes up with a bunch of great plans to steal the eggs, but he's smart enough to give the credit to the King Pig.
  • Evil Sorceror: Uses magic to steal and "hide" eggs in Angry Birds Epic.
  • French Jerk: Seems to have some sort French accent in the animated series, and is considerably more Jerk-ish as well. Goes hand in hand with being the Evil Chef.
  • Product Placement: The cookbook that Chef Pig mentions is available at bookstores in the Christmas comic is, in fact, a real cookbook.
  • The Starscream: In the Angry Birds Toons episode "Trojan Egg", he sits on King Pig's throne and wears his crown while the latter is being cooked alive by his own subjects. He even lets out an Evil Laugh as it happens.

Freckled Pig / Ross

  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the protagonist of the game, Bad Piggies.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: In Bad Piggies, he builds crazy vehicles to get through the levels.
  • Made of Iron: The worst he suffers from crashes and falls in Bad Piggies is a little dizziness.
  • Youthful Freckles: Has six brown dots, one on each cheek, but they're barely noticeable. He still retains them in his redesign for The Angry Birds Movie, but they're even harder to see.

Handsome Pig


  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Almost as thick as Red's.
  • Elite Mook: He is much, much more competent than the average pig. Unfortunately, he is just as stupid.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Well, minus the "justice" part of course. For a spherical pig, he sure has an impressive chin!
  • Nice Hat: For a broad definition of "hat", the red headband he wears all the time. He wouldn't be a Rambo parody without one.
  • Punny Name: A pig Rambo named "Hambo".

Alternative Title(s): Angry Birds Toons
