open/close all folders
Red Bird / Red
- Badass: In the animated series, he single-handedly took on the entire pig kingdom in "Off Duty" to get the eggs back from the pigs. He does it again in "Gate Crasher."
- Easter Egg: If you tap the screen after you launch him, he'll make a battle cry.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
- The Hero
- Classed as a Knight in Angry Birds Epic.
- It should be noted that, in the Transformers game, he plays Optimus freakin' Prime.
- 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 Might Feathers, where the Mighty Eagle granted him special feathers that finally grants 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 berzerk 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.
- Sensitive Fowl and Manly Bird: Manly bird to Chuck's sensitive fowl.
- Series Mascot
- Wolverine Publicity: Even taking this literally for laughs when his appearance in Space resembles closely to Wolverine.
Blue Bird / The Blues
- Bratty Half Pints
- Brilliant but Lazy/Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: They usually spend their free time napping or goofing off, but can clear the obstacle course Chuck set up better than he could, and can beat down pigs as much as the adult birds when they have to.
- The Ditz: Sort of.
- Kid Appeal Characters: A trio of hotheaded ankle biters.
- The Lancers: As they are the second birds to be introduced.
- More like Tagalong Kids in the animated series.
- Sibling Team
- Spread Shot/Recursive Ammo: Launched as a single bird that splits into three when the screen is tapped.
- Theme Triplet Naming: Blue Jake, Blue Jay, and Blue Jim.
Yellow Bird / Chuck
- Catch Phrase: "Lili!" whenever he's about to launch from a slingshot. Sometimes, other birds would say this when idle.
- Expy: Modeled after Bert.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
- 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.
- The Lancer: Often serves this to Red in the animated series.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The feminine to Matilda's masculine.
- Palette Swap: He's purple in Space. Everywhere else, he's traditionally yellow.
- Plucky Comic Relief
- Roboteching: He can do this in Space.
- Sensitive Fowl and Manly Bird: Sensitive fowl to Red's manly bird.
- 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".
Black Bird / Bomb
- Action Bomb
- 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.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Choleric.
- Glass Cannon: Whenever he hits something, he will explode in a few seconds. You can also make him explode manually by tapping the screen.
- Meaningful Name
- Shock and Awe: Since 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.
- Taking You with Me
White Bird / Matilda
- Ambiguous Gender: Some fans had been mistaking her as male. Averted with her Toons design which gave her Tertiary Sexual Characteristics to make her unambiguously female.
- Berserk Button: "Cordon Bleugh!" reveals that she doen't not like having her cooking mocked or ridiculed.
- 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.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Melancholic.
- 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 can kill plants, but at least the pigs like it.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The masculine to Chuck's feminine.
- 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.
- 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.
- Samus is a Girl: Many fans do not realize that she is a girl.
- 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.
- 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
- Black Sheep: He has been included in a few T-shirts and such, and has yet to appear in Angry Birds Toons.
- In the one trailer he has shown up in, he's portrayed as one in-universe, when he accidentally bumps into the slingshot, knocks a bird of course, and sheepishly tries to apologize to Red.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: In the above-mentioned trailer. He's an eager and well-meaning Klutz who accidentally screws things up for the other birds, but in the end he singlehandedly saves the eggs from the pigs.
- Lightning Bruiser: He travels faster if the direction of his flight path gets reversed.
- Pokémon Speak: In the original game, if you listen closely enough, he will say "Angrrry.... Birrrd!" when fired from the slingshot.
- Precision-Guided Boomerang Bird
- Put On A Nest
- The Nest Came Back: Angry Birds Friends
- The Team Benefactor
- Team Pet: As Grimlock in Angry Birds Transformers.
Big Brother Bird / Terence
- Acrofatic: Sort of, but he can teleport.
- Big Brother Mentor
- The Big Guy: Most likely. He's the biggest bird in the flock.
- Brains and Brawn: The brawn to Bomb's brains.
- The Dreaded: Shown to be this in the cartoons by the pigs. That doesn't stop him from giving every single pig a Christmas present.
- Mighty Glacier: He travels slowly when defying gravity. This makes up for his very hard-hitting brute force.
- Averted in Toons, he teleports.
- Palette Swap: He was green in Space. Everywhere else, he's traditionally red... like Red himself.
- His cousin, Tony, looks like a light blue Terrence.
- The Voiceless: Well, he doesn't speak. No, not even in the comics, where the other birds are Suddenly Voiced.
- He does growl as Wingman, though.
- You Look Familiar: He has a cousin named Tony, who appears in the On Finn Ice episode from Angry Birds Seasons.
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 appearance in Angry Birds Toons is the Halloween episode, where he fights a horde of zombie pigs to defend his candy. And again for the halloween party in the pigs' home.
- Tagalong Kid
- Tempting Fate: In the second halloween special, he ate the candy that turns anyone into a kraken monster
Ice Bird (appears only in Angry Birds Space)

- Put On A Nest: He hasn't been appearing in other Angry Birds games.
- Big Good
- Bribing Your Way to Victory: It costs 99 cents to unlock him.
- The Dreaded: His size alone strikes fear within the pigs. At first, even the other birds feared him.
- 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.
- Not Good With Other Birds Than Possibly The Blues
- The Obi-Wan: The character who guides the player in Angry Birds: Epic.
- 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.
- 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.
Pink Bird / Stella
- Action Girl: She played this role in her introduction video. Preferably a Girly Bruiser type.
- Breakout Character: She is the main protagonist of her own game, Angry Birds Stella.

- Berserk Button: Don't ever call him a baby. Escalates further with one of his unlockable costumes giving him a pacifier.
- Expy: Of The Blues. He also has some shades of The Lancer like they did.
- Glass-Shattering Sound: His screams are strong enough to shatter glass blocks, but they can't travel through stone.
- Kid-Appeal Character: An ankle biter.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: See Glass-Shattering Sound.
- The One Guy: In Stella's flock.
- Tagalong Kid
- Voice Changeling: He can copy any voice and even sounds. Yes, he can squeak like a Pikachu.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: Her power is turning on her side and rapidly spinning through blocks in one direction.
- Expy: The Distaff Counterpart of Hal. Both are Precision-Guided Boomerang Birds, though she pulls it off much differently than Hal.
- The Heart: In Stella's flock.
- Nice Hat: She's never seen without her big toque.
- True Blue Femininity
- Expy: The Distaff Counterpart of Bomb. Both birds are very intelligent.

- 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 crushed by falling rocks.
- Face-Heel Turn: She used to be part of the flock until she found the pig crown and the power went to her head.
- High Collar of Doom: More jarring because he doesn't have a cape... or, you know, a body.
- 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
- 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
- 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
- Madeof 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.

- Pluralses: In the comics, he speaks like this.
- Secret Circle of Secrets: In the Halloween comic, he's the leader of one called "The Druids of Warthos."

- Cool Helmet: His helmet makes him harder to destroy.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty
- Art Evolution: He looks older and wrinklier now than he did initially. He's also blind in one eye now.
- Badass Mustache
- 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 on 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.
- 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 "Trojan Egg", he sits on King Pig's throne and wears his crown while he's being cooked alive by his own subjects. He even lets out an Evil Laugh.
