Main Flock

    Red 

Voiced by: Antti Pääkkönen (Angry Birds Toons), Jason Sudeikis (The Angry Birds Movie), Mike Bodie (Angry Birds on the Run)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • 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. While this trait also applies to other birds as well, he's way more aggressive compared to them.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Sports impressive ones. He was bullied for it when he was younger.
  • Black Sheep: In The Angry Birds Movie as an angry bird in a community of happy birds.
  • Byronic Hero: He is this in the The Angry Birds Movie.
  • 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.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Justified. In the The Angry Birds Movie, this is OBVIOUSLY the reason why he's always so grumpy.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's this in The Angry Birds Movie.
  • 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 of doing anything friendly, but he's still a good-hearted bird who's just edgier than the other birds.
  • Grumpy Bear: In the movie, he is the only one of the birds on the island to be perpetually-annoyed.
  • 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 admits that he's a "passionate" bird.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • As the leader of the flock, Red is easily the grumpiest bird and is sometimes a bit of control freak toward the other birds, especially when it comes to protecting the eggs. With that being said, he does care for them in the end.
    • In the movie, he is easily irritated, snarky, grumpy and anti-social, but he has a good heart and is willing to help his island out at the end.
  • 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.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": A red bird named Red.
  • 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.
    • Also Subverted in Angry Birds 2. See Make Me Wanna Shout above.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Ship Tease: With Stella despite implicated age-gaps between the two birds and formerly having a Distaff Counterpart of his own from Seasons to pair off with.
  • The Stoic: Downplayed. In the movie, he rarely laughs or cries. This also correlates with him being a grumpy bird.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To Terence, who is essentially a gigantic, silent version of him with faded red feathers.
  • Took a Level in Idealism: In "The Angry Birds Movie", he is usually the cynical one out of the entire community. But later in the film, he became less of a pessimist and more of an optimist after the eggs were stolen by the pigs.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Even taking this literally for laughs when his appearance in Space resembles Wolverine closely.

    The Blues (Jay, Jake and Jim) 

Voiced by: Heljä Heikkinen and Lynne Guaglione (Angry Birds Toons), Noah Schnapp, Owen Wilder Vaccaro and Pierce Gagnon (The Angry Birds Movie), Heljä Heikkinen, Vilppu Uusitalo and Vertti Uusitalo (Angry Birds Blues), JoJo Siwa (Jay, The Angry Birds Movie 2)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • A Day in the Limelight: As a mini-series to the movie's universe, they star in their own show, Angry Birds Blues.
  • Badass Adorable: They're essentially the youngest birds of the flock, yet still capable to beat-up the pigs just like the other birds.
  • Blue Is Heroic: All three are blue, and are opposed to the pigs taking their eggs.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: 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.
  • Kid Appeal Characters: A trio of hotheaded ankle biters.
  • The Lancers: In most of their game appearances. Justified that in earlier games, they are the second birds to be introduced, following the Red bird himself.
    • In Angry Birds Transformers, they even play the role of Prowl, who is also a second-in-command of the Generation 1 Autobots.
    • Downplayed in Angry Birds Toons, where they function as Tagalong Kids.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: They're triplets, and they're all male.
  • Sibling Team: Whenever they confront the pigs, they always fight as a trio, never single.
  • Spread Shot/Recursive Ammo: Launched as a single bird that splits into three when the screen is tapped.
  • Theme Triplet Naming: Their names each start with the letter J.
  • The Trickster: They love to pull out pranks towards the pigs, and even to the other birds sometimes.
  • Totem Pole Trench: In Angry Birds Epic, they all share one costume. May or may not be an actual trenchcoat.

    Chuck 

Voiced by: Antti LJ Pääkkönen (Angry Birds Toons), Josh Gad (The Angry Birds Movie), Arnab Chanda (Angry Birds on the Run)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • 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.
  • Black Mage: Classed as a wizard in Angry Birds Epic.
  • Butt-Monkey: Chuck's smugness and happy-go-lucky overconfidence often land him in awkward and (sometimes painful) situations.
  • Catchphrase: "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.
  • Jerkass: In Angry Birds Toons, Chuck is often depicted as a smug and arrogant ego-maniac. Sometimes this bites him in the end during several episodes.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his flaws, he genuinely cares about his friends and the safety of the eggs.
  • Keet: In the movie, he is always cheerful and enthusiastic.
  • 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: Usually depicted as cheerful, friendly and the resident jokester.

    Bomb 

Voiced by: Pasi Ruohonen (Angry Birds Toons), Danny McBride (The Angry Birds Movie), Baker Terry (Angry Birds on the Run)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • 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.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In his early appearance, he has a white dot on his forehead until it removed in the later games, including later versions of the original.
  • Gentle Giant: In the movie. He is the biggest member of the main cast barring Terence, but likely the nicest.
  • 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.
  • Nice Guy: In the movie. He is generally polite and friendly to others and his explosion problem is completely out of his control.
  • 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. In the movie, the two are depicted as Those Two Guys instead.

    Matilda 

Voiced by: Antti LJ Pääkkönen (Angry Birds Toons), Maya Rudolph (The Angry Birds Movie)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • 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. This design would be used in later games starting with Angry Birds Go!.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She has strangely been left out of Space. She's also always absent in the trailers, with the reason of her lack of appearences 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.
  • 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 other 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.
  • Staff Chick: Classed as a Healer in Angry Birds Epic
  • 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.
    • In The Movie, she's an anger management therapist.
  • Throw Down A Weaponized Offspring: Bonus points for Stuff Blowing Up with the dropped egg.

    Hal 

Voiced by: Anthony Padilla (The Angry Birds Movie)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • Cheshire Cat Grin: This picture completely says it all at one point
  • 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 singlewingedly saves the eggs from the pigs.
  • Demoted to Extra: He has had the least appearances out of all the birds (i.e. being included in a few T-shirts and such, and not appearing at all 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.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He travels faster if the direction of his flight path gets reversed.
  • Pokémon Speak: In older versions of the original game, if you listen closely enough, he will say "Angrrry.... Birrrd!" when fired from the slingshot.

    Terence 

Voiced by: Heljä Heikkinen (Angry Birds Toons), Sean Penn (The Angry Birds Movie), Nolan North (The Angry Birds Movie 2)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • 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 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 Toons series by the pigs. That doesn't stop him from giving them a Christmas present however.
    • He also sort of has this effect on the other birds, who feel kind of awkward and intimidated around him.
  • Establishing Character Moment: More like Establishing Character Arc: He shows up in the first game’s Darkest Hour "The Big Setup", where the pigs have actually gotten smarter and captured all the birds, as well as rebuilding all the destroyed structures the birds smashed. Terence promptly shows up and spends the entire chapter, along with Hal who he rescues at one point, destroying all the structures all over again and taking down the pigs once again. No wonder the pigs consider him The Dreaded!
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his imposing figure, he genuinely wants to help the birds protect the eggs from the pigs.
  • He Who Must Not Be Heard: Well, he doesn't speak. No, not even in the comics or movie, where the other birds are Suddenly Voiced. Although, he suddenly sings Mighty Red Song along with the Hatchlings in The Movie once.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Matilda in the movie.
  • 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.
  • Noodle Incident: In The Angry Birds Movie, what Terence did to get assigned to anger management class is never made clear. We just see Matilda staring at him in gobsmacked horror, whilst the background music changes to police sirens... and screaming women.
    • We get another hint when Matilda learns that Terence is driving their getaway truck, she advises everyone to buckle up and emphasizes this with a "Trust me!" This implies that part of the reason was that he Drives Like Crazy.
  • 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.

    Bubbles 

Voiced by: Antti LJ Pääkkönen (Angry Birds Toons), Ian Hecox (The Angry Birds Movie)

Debut: Angry Birds Seasons


  • Badass Adorable: Alongside The Blues, he's also the youngest one, but capable to defeat the pigs on his own, thanks to his ballooning ability.
  • 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.
  • Tempting Fate: In the second Halloween special, he ate the candy that turns anyone into a kraken monster

    Silver 

Voiced by: Rachel Bloom (The Angry Birds Movie 2)

Debut: Angry Birds 2


  • Action Girl: She's a peregrine falcon, and a playable character since Angry Birds 2. In gameplay, she's the ideal bird for smashing rocks easily and has a divebomb attack that loops downwards upon activation.
  • 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.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: After being raised by the pigs, expect her to be just as goofy as them.
  • 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 about to cook 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.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": A silver bird named Silver.
  • Naïve Newcomer: In "Angry Birds 2".
  • Noble Bird of Prey: Is based on the peregrine falcon.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In The Angry Birds Movie 2, she and Chuck are brother and sister.

Stella's Flock

    Stella 

Voiced by: Heljä Heikkinen (Angry Birds Stella), Kate McKinnon (The Angry Birds Movie)

Debut: Angry Birds Seasons


  • Action Girl: She played this role in her introduction video. Preferably a Girly Bruiser type.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: The movie version of her makes her much more attractive.
  • All-Loving Hero: She is stated to be very forgiving even towards her former friend Gale, who is now Queen of the pigs. In the Angry Birds Stella episode "New Day", she lets a group of pigs sleep in her flock's house.
  • Berserk Button: Hers is being upstaged.
  • Breakout Character: She is the main protagonist of her own game, Angry Birds Stella. She also received her own show with the same name.
  • Stellar Name: Stella means "star" in Latin.
  • Tomboy And Girly Bird: The Girly Bird to Matilda's tomboy. Also the Tomboy to Willow's Girly Bird.
  • Valley Girl: Speaks like one in The Angry Birds Movie.
  • Wall Jump: Her primary skill in Angry Birds Stella.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Is a former friend of Gale, who sided with the pigs after she found a crown.
  • What Measure Is a Mook?: Rather surprisingly, Stella is enraged at Gale when at her victory party, she turns a growing number of her pigs into gold, to show off. Only her friends stop her from going at Gale that instant.

    Poppy 
Voiced by: Rinna Paatso (Angry Birds Stella)

    Luca 

Voiced by: Saara Lehtonen (Angry Birds Stella)

Debut: Angry Birds Stella


    Willow 

Voiced by: Annituuli Kasurinen (Angry Birds Stella), Charli XCX (The Angry Birds Movie)

Debut: 'Angry Birds Stella


  • Berserk Button: Don't disturb her when she's in a creative mood. Also, pigs destroying the island she and her friends live in.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She likes to daydream and is sometimes not mentally attached to the real world.
  • 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.
  • A Friend in Need: While the petrification spreading from Gale's use of the Golden Egg, Artist Pig petrified. Willow, instead of fleeing immediately, chooses not to just leave him and pushes him along back home.
  • The Heart: In Stella's flock.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Willow actually develops one with the Painter Pig. He's nowhere near as good an artist as Willow: but when Gale kidnaps Willow to paint Gale's portrait (her own painter not up to the task), Willow gives him encouragement and helps him improve. Willow does a professional job of Gale's portrait, while the Painter Pig does a second picture of her too. It's still grade school level, but an obvious improvement over his first which was a stickman painting. Gale doesn't care and breaks his paint brush. Willow responds by painting a pig nose on Gale's portrait before leaving and giving the painter pig her own paintbrush as a replacement.
  • Nice Hat: She's never seen without her big toque.
  • Screw Destiny: Willow has a nightmare of the glen she painted, the animals there, and herself, turning to stone. When it begins to happen for real due to Gale's use of the Golden Egg, except to Artist Pig instead of her, Willow doesn't just stand around and let it happen to her.
  • Shrinking Violet: Has shades of this. The Angry Birds official website explicitly states that her shyness sometimes prevents her from expressing how she truly feels.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: The Angry Birds official website states she can talk to animals.
  • Taken for Granite: This happens to Willow in a prophetic dream she has. She runs to the place she saw to find it alright, only for bits of stone fall and terrify her, and it turns out its just Artist Pig sculpting. Then the animal and the land begin to turn to stone for real, including Artist Pig as a result of Gale's use of the Golden Egg.
  • Technical Pacifist: Like Matilda from the original game, she isn't as confrontational as her friends, but she's willing to beat up any pig that threatens her home.
  • Tomboy And Girly Bird: The Girly Bird to Stella's Tomboy.
  • True Blue Femininity

    Dahlia 

Voiced by: Sari Mällinen (Angry Birds Stella)

Debut: Angry Birds Stella


    Gale 

Voiced by: Paula Vesala and Saara Lehtonen (Angry Birds Stella)

Debut: Angry Birds Stella


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Gale's a villain in the Stella web series, but that's not the case in the The Angry Birds Movie and its sequel, which appear to retcon out the spin-off's plot and setting.
  • 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.
    • For that matter, don't wear one in her presences. Every time Gale sees anyone or anything else wearing a crown or something that might be similar to one, she almost instinctively attacks it. It's not clear if this is a corruption by the crown itself, or Gale has developed a pathological need to be the only 'royalty' around, or both.
  • Big Bad: She's the main villain Stella and her friends must face in Angry Birds Stella (until it was cancelled) and in their animated series.
  • Break the Haughty: After finally getting her Golden Egg, turning some of her own minions to gold, and trying to turn Stella to gold. Gale gets turned to gold, and against the advice of the birds, but the pleading of the pigs, Stella restores Gale. Gale for a moment is under the Golden Egg's spell, but then flees in terror of it, the experience clearly having had an effect on her.
  • Companion Cube: Once she has the Golden Egg, Gale quickly begins to treat it like a beloved pet, setting it a seat at the table being the least weird thing she does.
  • Contralto of Danger: Has a significantly deep and sultry voice compared to Stella's flock, who all sound bright and happy in comparison.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The first pig Gale turns to gold with the Golden Egg was crying at seeing the tower Gale turned to gold fall into the volcano (and possibly some of the pigs working on it).
  • Distaff Counterpart: Species differences otherwise, Gale is one to the King Pig.
  • Equivalent Exchange: Every time she turns something to gold with the golden egg, something on the island turns to stone. At first its random, but then Gale seemingly learns how to direct it.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Her opening trailer has her throwing out a minion pig who was mocking her by 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 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.
  • Evil Is Easy: There are times it shows that Gale misses the rest of her flock, but her crown basically causes the pigs to obey her every whim and do whatever she wants. When she loses her crown, and is left a broken battered mess, Handsome Pig (the only pig who remains loyal to her without the crown), he takes her back to her flock where they nurse her back to health. It's obvious she's having a good time with them, 'like the good old days'. But the moment Handsome Pig finds her crown and returns it to her, she abandons them yet again.
  • 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.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Probably the same, if possibly worse than King Pig from the original series. Several collectible photos from Angry Birds Stella depict her using the pigs for her own amusement.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Deconstructed slightly with Stella's birthday. Gale shows up uninvited, and brings a ton of party supplies and a gift (by her demented standards). She and her pigs actually have a genuinely a good time with the flock. But Gale is still jealous, covetous, and still has a Hair-Trigger Temper, which turns the party into a disaster the moment her trigger goes off. Stella is left in tears that night (She gets over it by taping over the humiliating picture Gale gave her with a picture of them just having fun at the party).
  • 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, which represented her status as a hero before her Face–Heel Turn.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: During the finale, she gets turned to gold herself with the Golden Egg while trying to do so to Stella.
  • Incoming Ham/Evil Is Hammy: If her opening trailer is anything to go by...
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Deep down, she really does seem to want to be Stella and the Flock's friend again, but is too self-centered to let it happen.This doesn't stop Gale wanting her cake and having it too. Once she has the Golden Egg, and has turned most of the island's food to stone as a side effect of using it turn other things into gold, she invites the rest of the flock to her castle for a party. Stella refuses, the others, starving, don't. Gale spots Stella though her telescope at their tree, and begins to turn pieces of it to stone to corral her into coming. It eventually works, and Gale violently pushes a pig out of the way so she can greet Stella to the castle herself (notably she also removed Hamsome's Pig's spot next to her at the table and replaced it with Stella's).
  • 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.
  • Myth Arc: Her search for the Golden Egg forms one. After two seasons of failures and set backs, Gale finally gets her wings on it in the season 2 finale. And her Drunk with Power traits get even worse.
  • 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. Subverted in one episode where Handsome Pig doesn't follow her order and manipulates him with her charms.
  • Purple Is Powerful: She's a purple bird who became princess of the pigs after she got her crown.
  • Taken for Granite: Indirectly gains this power when she gets the Golden Egg: it turns something else on the island to stone when she uses it to turn something to gold, and she eventually gets some measure of control over it.
  • The Unfought: Because Stella ended up getting Cut Short due to Rovio deciding to focus more on the Allegedly Free Game genre, players never actually got to fight Gale.
  • 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: She was once good friends with Stella, until she found a crown and became mad with the power it brought her.
  • You Will Be Spared: When Gale finally gets her feathers on the Golden Egg, the pigs plead with Hamsome Pig to steal it when she turns one of them to gold. Hamsome Pig, who can't stand how she's been lavishing over the Golden Egg since she got it, complies, and it ends as one would expect. But instead of turning him to gold, she turns his wig to gold. At this seeming sign that she does value him, he's instantly is on her side again. Even the other pigs are disgusted.

Other Birds

Debut: Angry Birds Space


    Mighty Eagle 

Voiced by: Peter Dinklage (The Angry Birds Movie)

Debut: Angry Birds (Classic)


  • Adaptational Jerkass: In the Angry Birds Movie, he's portrayed as an overweight, selfish, has-been who's given up the heroing business and refuses to help out until the very end of the movie. He tries to claim he was just being a Trickster Mentor, but it's left ambiguous if this is really the case or if he's just lying to try and cover up his own less-than-heroic behavior. It's notable that Red, Chuck and Bomb are all quite skeptical of the claim.
  • 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.

  • Perpetual Molt: His flight path is marked by a trail of feathers.
  • Personof 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: He serves this basic purpose in the game proper, immediately killing off all pigs on the screen when used.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Sardines, of course. That's what summons him.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In the Moon Festival comic via storytelling, he actually misses his subjects once he's on the moon for too long so when he came back home with Chuck, he throws a party for all of his subjects.
  • Affably Evil: Despite being the Big Bad of the main series, King Pig is rather too goofy and childish to be seen as an intimidating threat by the birds. Well, mostly...
  • All There in the Manual: The official Angry Birds guide book reveal his full name to be 'King Pig Smooth Cheeks'.
  • 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.

  • Big Eater: He's this all the time.

    King Leonard Mudbeard 

Voiced by: Bill Hader

Debut: The Angry Birds Movie

The leader of the pigs as seen in The Angry Birds Movie. Although essentially filling the same role as King Pig, he's quite a different character.


  • Affably Evil: Comes across as jovial, personable and larger than life. His goal still boils down to Eats Babies and he's not above playing up a veneer of benevolence to achieve his goals.
  • Dumbass No More: He's way more cunning than on the Toons series, thanks to an upgrade to his personality.
  • Large and in Charge: His status as the king of the pigs is easily showcased by the fact he's the tallest of them all.

  • Surrounded by Idiots: In the movie, King Mudbeard is a very cunning and crafty character, but his porcine subjects are all a bunch of idiots. Even lampshaded when Red first reveals he's brought a whole army of pigs with him to the island, where he uses the dimwittedness of his subjects as an excuse for why he was hiding them; to keep them safe in case things went wrong.
  • What's Up, King Dude?: Although his formal name is King Mudbeard, even his own subjects happily refer to him by his first name of Leonard, even after he returns to the Piggy Island and resumes the throne.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Expy: If the post-2012 animations are any indication, they could be this to the Minions from Despicable Me.
    • They also could be an expy to the Rabbids as well due to both of them known for being obnoxiously stupid and really annoying in general with a bit of Ugly Cute, although the minion pigs are downplayed version of them and overall much smarter and cuter in comparison.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Whenever they try to to steal the birds' eggs, even when they're about to turn them into omelettes.
