The Flock Toons

The flock in toons form with Silver from Angry Birds 2. Mighty Eagle is not included.

Birds are the protagonists of the Angry Birds series and come in varieties of different species and sizes. Their main goal is to retrieve the eggs that the Bad Piggies have stolen. Ever since they were first stolen, they have tried numerous attempts to get them back; even defeating pigs. They hurl themselves using the slingshot at the various fortresses the pigs made. There are 9 playable birds in Angry Birds Classic, 9 in Seasons, 10 in Rio, 7 playable birds and 1 egg in Space, 10 playable birds and 1 playable pig (Leonard) from Angry Birds 2, & 7 birds from Angry Birds Star Wars and 1 egg. When a level is completed with unused birds, the player is awarded 10,000 points for each unused bird, regardless of type. This increases the chance of getting 3 stars in a level.

The birds formerly lived in Bird Island but then moved to Piggy Island for unknown reasons.

All the grown birds have three or more feathers as a tail, while younger birds only have two.

Special Powers

If the screen is touched or clicked while a bird is moving, it will activate a special power or an unusual noise. This is unavailable if the bird has become a corpse except for Bomb, Terence, Bubbles, their Space versions, Stella, Cheetos, Space Egg, and the Ice Bird, but Blu uses his power as soon as he hits an object. Mighty Creatures can be bought and once their item is launched they fly after it attacking the level.

Special Powers from the Original App

These birds are the Flock and the Mighty Eagle, their friend and ally, and they all have appeared in the first three apps (the Original, Seasons, and Rio) and most have appeared (in a new form) in Angry Birds Space (except Matilda, Hal, and Mighty Eagle) and in Angry Birds online games like Angry Birds Friends.

  • Red - Squawks when you tap or click the screen, but has no special powers.
  • Jay, Jake, and Jim - Multiplies into 3, and each clone is bumped slightly up or down. (Strong against glass and glass but weak against other blocks).
  • Chuck - Gains more speed (it always goes at the same certain speed, no matter what speed it was moving at before) and makes a more of a high pitched sound than before. (Strong against wood but weak against glass)
  • Bomb- Able to explode in mid-air or on impact. (Great at breaking stone)
  • Matilda - Drops an egg which then explodes. The bird herself becomes deflated and is propelled fast upwards and to the right. The body still collides and can be used as a powerful Red.
  • Hal - On air, opens his beak and flies in the opposite direction, maintaining the same speed and vertical direction. Underwater, turns into a corpse. He also flies higher than all the other birds when fired.
  • Terence - Stronger than common birds, but no real power. (Great at breaking all blocks)
  • Bubbles - Expands to a huge size, like a balloon, propelling all blocks away while in a tight space in either mid-air or on impact. After impact, it deflates.
  • Mighty Eagle - Smashing everything and causes an earthquake, eliminating any pig on the level. (Summoned using Sardines)
  • Stella - Has the ability to blow bubbles and piggies, blocks, and other obstacles in the radius of the bubble will fly in the air in multiple pink, blue, or green bubbles. Once the bubbles are popped, everything will fall down causing massive damage to both the pigs and the fortresses.

Special Powers from Other Apps

From Angry Birds Seasons

  • Mighty Dragon - descends in a staircase-like form, loops around, and darts back up, popping all piggies and destroying obstacles in his way, similar to Mighty Eagle. (summoned by using the Red Koi Fish) (Year of the Dragon only)
  • Mighty Basketball - Like the Mighty Eagle, but falls on the level then bounces again. (Ham Dunk only, summoned using an unknown white object)
  • Tony - Goes down vertically and creates a shockwave when contacts with a block.

From AB Rio

  • Blu and Jewel chained together - When tapped or clicked, Jewel flies straight dragging Blu along.
  • Blu freed and solo - Once he hits an object, he'll shake himself up causing the spreading of objects.
  • Samba Bird - Once he hits an object, he'll start dancing causing objects to fly in different directions.

From AB Space

  • Ice Bird - Ice Bird freezes an area on impact. Ice Bird explodes a couple of seconds after impact with any piece of structure and covers the surrounding blocks and pigs with ice making them brittle and easier to break. If the screen is not tapped, Ice Bird will hesitate for a few seconds, still turning surfaces it touches into ice; making the Ice Bird a technical variation of Bomb. It also has a Sling Scope.
  • Super Red Bird - Similiar to Red, but if near a pig in a gravitational force and if the screen is tapped, the pig(s) will get scared. He still makes a noise when this happens. It also has Sling Scope power. (Red)
  • Lightning Birds - Same as the Blues, but with a Sling Scope. (Blues)
  • Lazer Bird - Similiar to Chuck, but tapping now chooses a directional target. Lazer Bird will turn at a sharp angle and accelerate toward the target tap, ignoring gravity and air vents until hitting something or running out of speed. It also has Sling Scope power. (Chuck)
  • Fire Bomb Bird - Same as Bomb, with slightly higher knockback. It also has the Sling Scope power. (Bomb)
  • Monster Bird - Same as Terence, but with the Sling Scope. (Terence)
  • Atom Bird - Same as Bubbles, except, the deflated Bubbles no longer does damage and floats in gravity fields instead of falling. It also has Sling Scope. (Bubbles)
  • Space Egg - The space egg can create a small but very powerful black hole that appears on screen for a short time. It can be used kind of like a magnet, to pull things around. It also has the Sling Scope. (Eggs)
  • Space Eagles - Similiar power as the Mighty Eagle, but Space Eagles will only do some damage to the level, but there are no time restrictions on use, and you can use several per level since they travel in Flocks. They fly out of a vortex. (Summoned using Sardines, also has the sling scope.) (Mighty Eagle)

From Angry Birds Star Wars

  • Luke Skywalker - At first no power. After level 1-9, he slices with a blue lightsaber. After completing the Path of the Jedi, he slices with a green lightsaber which causes even more damage.
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi - Pushes things away with the force in the direction where you tapped. After a Death Star level, he uses force stronger and pushes things upward where the player taps.
  • Han Solo - Shoots three lasers in the direction the player taps.
  • Rebel Pilots - Same ability to split into three like the Blue Birds.
  • Chewbacca - Same as Big Brother Bird, but causes the screen to shake.
  • R2-D2 - Electrocutes nearby pigs.
  • C-3PO - Breaks into 5 pieces.
  • Princess Leia - Pulls objects toward her in the direction the player taps.

From AB Cheetos

  • Cheetos - Like Bomb, if it hits a structure, it simply blows up, causing a small amount of damage. If the screen is clicked when it is in mid-air, it blows up, but this time it releases four explosive Cheetos.

From AB Philadelphia Eagle

  • Mighty Philadelphia Eagle - Same as Mighty Eagle, but after a few seconds after it hits the ground the game goes in slow motion for a few seconds and flashes, then back to normal. (Summoned using football .)

From Angry Birds 2

  • Red - When you tap the screen, his battle cry will release an aura of his anger.
  • Silver - Does a 360-degree loop and goes down, if she comes in contact with a stone block, she creates an earthquake.
  • Leonard (Pig but considered bird in-game) - Can shoot 3 snot bombs but is very fragile and instantly pops upon contact with anything.

Bird-Pig Alliance

The Bird-Pig Alliance is an alliance formed after the unexpected end of the Great Egg War, a conflict between the Birds and the Pigs, in response to the imminent threat of Zeta's plot to destroy both Bird Island and Piggy Island so that she would have a larger resort all to herself. The Birds and Pigs came to develop friendships and put aside former grudges during their joint effort to defeat Zeta and was warmed by her reunion and final marriage with her lover Mighty Eagle, allowing such alliance to endure further.


The Great Egg War ended abruptly when its last battle, the Battle of Overseas Pranks, was interrupted by the appearance of a larger threat that was ultimately directed towards both Birds and Pigs - a powerful superweapon manned by Zeta and her eagles from Eagle Island. After the first shot was fired towards his kingdom, Leonard, ruler of the Pigs, called for an emergency truce for the war against the Birds in hopes of trying to make sense of who or what just attacked them.

After knowing the truth of the attack's origins, Leonard traveled to Bird Island personally with his elite SQUEAL Team Six to meet with Red at his house to explain his emergency truce and the need to forge an alliance between Birds and Pigs to save their homelands. After Leonard successfully convinces Red, the two went throughout the island assembling a strike team to destroy Zeta's superweapon, rounding up Chuck, Bomb and Silver as the best Birds for the mission. They all then meet at Mighty Eagle's cave along with Mighty Eagle himself and Courtney to discuss a plan, only to be interrupted when Zeta destroys the cave.

Leonard then brings the team aboard his submarine to introduce them to other Pigs and their new inventions, before they all travel to Eagle Island to begin their mission. A great struggle against Zeta and her eagles ensued once they came to the island, ending with the total destruction of her weapon. With the mission a success, the team returned to Bird Island, where Birds and Pigs alike gathered on the beach to witness Mighty Eagle finally marrying a redeemed Zeta and rediscovering his lost daughter Debbie, whom Zeta raised alone without him up to that point.

Throughout the Birds and Pigs' mission to defeat Zeta, the Birds and Pigs were able to put aside past grudges and develop amicable relations to accomplish their goals, and the outcome of their efforts affirmed the alliance's viability in the future. To commemorate these friendly ties, Leonard commissioned drones to sculpt out the faces of the strike team onto the remains of Mighty Eagle's cave.[1]

Some time later, an unseen force begins to infest the known world with bubbles, spawning strange one-eyed creatures and trapping hatchlings and piglets alike in bubbles. The Bird-Pig alliance once again had no problem with stepping up to battle this new threat together.[2]

Behind the scenes

...There's no reason to do a sequel unless you're going to try to top the original, and with this, it was immediately clear to me that there was a whole different approach...[The sequel] has some amazing messaging in it, not the least of which is overcoming differences with people you disagree with in order to find a common ground, which I think speaks to a lot of issues we're dealing with right now.
— Josh Gad, voice actor for Chuck
The idea of Birds and Pigs choosing to abandon their rivalry and working together to fight a larger threat in The Angry Birds Movie 2 was a creative decision that was made in hopes of making a sequel to the first film that would outdo it and defy expectations. One of the films' voice actors, Josh Gad, remarked that such decision to break from the games' source material delivered a much-needed message about putting aside differences in a polarized society and culture.[3] Country singer Luke Combs wrote a song exclusively for the film, titled "Let's Just Be Friends" to further reinforce the theme of friendship, which played during its end credits to celebrate the alliance's formation.

The bubble shooter game Angry Birds POP 2 is set after the events of The Angry Birds Movie 2. This is evidenced by how the game's plot involves Birds and Pigs working together, and some of its levels have a backdrop of the sculptures of the faces of the Bird-Pig strike team commissioned to stop Zeta, implying that the game's story logically follows after that of the film.

During the creation of a Bird-Pig alliance, a special forces team was assembled for the initial purpose of defending both Bird Island and Piggy Island against the impending threat of Zeta, a rogue eagle from Eagle Island who wishes to use a powerful weapon to raze both islands to establish a larger resort for herself. This team was specifically commissioned to stage a raid of Eagle Island to destroy the weapon.

After Red and Leonard agreed to create an alliance to stop Zeta from destroying their homelands the night after the Battle of Overseas Pranks at the former's house, the two traveled across the island with Courtney to begin putting together a special team that would accomplish the job. Red considers his friends, Bomb (the Explosives Expert), Chuck (the Speed Demon) and Mighty Eagle (the Fearless Warrior), to be the best Birds for the mission, but Chuck then suggests that they may need one more ally, his sister Silver (the Brainiac), whom they meet at Avian Academy.

The team then gathered at Mighty Eagle's cave, but before they could come up with a detailed plan of attack, Zeta shoots the cave with her weapon, demolishing it and prompting the team to escape through an emergency exit that's only designed for Mighty Eagle. They manage to evade the deadly missile themselves, but a moment of inattention causes Mighty Eagle to crash into another mountain, sending the other special forces members falling. Red uses the map of Eagle Island to form a giant parachute for others to grab, but it proved unreliable. Silver then intervened by patching the hole that tore through it, allowing the team to land safely.

With no time left to lose, the special forces team began their assault on Eagle Island, starting off by boarding Leonard's Pig Submarine to travel there undetected. Aboard this ship, they meet Garry and the various inventions he prepared for the team's mission. Upon arriving on the island, they snuck onto Zeta's base, as she was making preparations to have her superweapon unleash a barrage of lava-ice balls that were meant to completely render Bird Island and Piggy Island unrecognizable so that she could expand her resort. A battle ensued as the special forces fought to destroy the weapon successfully, ending with Zeta regretting her actions and agreeing to finally marry her lover, Mighty Eagle, who spurned her years ago.

The special forces were well-commended for their heroic actions as Leonard used drones to sculpt the faces of the special forces on what remained of Mighty Eagle's cave, while Red gave special honors to Silver for finding the key to victory.[4]


In-game Tutorials


  • There are 24 confirmed blue birds including their counterparts in other games (The Blues, Olive and Greg, Blu, Jewel, the Mighty Philadelphia Eagle, Ice Bird, Luca, Willow, Tony, Serdar Soganci Bird, Shirley, Phillip, The Lightning Birds, The Wedge Antilles Birds and the Jedi Youngling Birds) (Not counting the Angry Birds Evolution Birds or Hatchlings).
  • An artist named Sam Spratt painted realistic pictures of the birds.
  • For an update, Bomb has a new voice, for Angry Birds, however, it was replaced with the old voice in recent updates of Angry Birds Classic.
  • The birds seem to be kind to other species (Except for piggies when they steal eggs) because they save and help animals in the games and cartoons.
