YMMV / Angry Birds Stella

Go To

  • Harsher in Hindsight: In the episodes "Own the Sky" and "Step It Up!", Stella gets pretty roughed up, taking hard falls that would definitely leave more than a mark. Then, after the movies established that Stella looked pretty leggy, one who looks back at these two episodes might not want to even start to think about how exponentially horrific these injuries could become if it's so that she broke her legs in such accidents - because they'd pretty much be goners. The same could also be said for Gale, since she's also shown to be leggy in the movies, and midway through the series, she is nearly killed by large collapsing rocks, suffering injuries that confined her to a wheelchair, implying that she pretty much broke at least a bone.

  • Jerkass Woobie: Gale might be greedy and insensitive, but she still wanted to reconnect with her old friends. Her pride and selfishness regarding the golden egg still alienated herself from Stella and the flock.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In "Night of the Bling", after accidentally awakening the Shaman Pig, Stella is forced to see her friends one by one be turned into his piggy minions and not able to save any of them.
  • One-Scene Wonder: The Shaman Pig from "Night of the Bling"... he and his horde is awakened from their eternal rest, successfully assimilated the heroes and villains into his piggy horde... and they're only spared by him returning to sleep with the dawn and his spell being undone.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Gale's supposed death in the episode "To the Bitter End".
      • Also, with Gale presumed dead, the pigs under her command are suddenly leaderless. Her second in command seemingly spends all day weeping at a painting of her, while the rest of the pigs go wild in the castle. When Stella live with them for a day to spite her friends for their hostile treatment of them when they were effectively her houseguests... she can't stand what a chaotic mess they are, and misses her friends, so sneaks out in the middle of the night. And she finds the entire sounder of rank and file pigs behind her, looking sad and desperate. You can practically hear them asking, "Are you going to leave us too?" and clearly wanting Stella to take Gale's place. Stella still goes back to her friends, but it's clear she's sad at having to leave them.

How well does it match the trope?
