Blue was born in a Brazilian Rainforest originally, along with most of the birds.

Blu and Jewel in the Environmental Conservation Center.

fly and still trying to do so.

Túlio, an ornithologist, found him and asked Linda to get him to Brazil so he could reproduce with Jewel and make more specimens of Spix Macaws, When Blu was going to the Environmental Conservation Center, he found Nico and Pedro, Pedro is a singing Cardinal while Pedro is a bottle cap tambourine player. 

When he reached the center, Jewel didn't want to do it, and both were captured by Nigel, a former rock star cockatoo, and sent to the Smugglers' Den.

In the den, Nigel told them that he was a former rock star, being replaced parakeet. In the game, the smugglers captured Red, Chuck and Jay and took them to the den, as they had a very good price, they got angry and invented a way to escape, freeing Blu, Jewel and a bunch of exotic birds.

Blu escaped with the birds, still chained with Jewel, fighting the Marmosets and Nigel and then finding Rafael, a toco toucan that said that Luiz, a mechanic's bulldog, could break that chain. They passed by the beach and reached the workshop, where they found the dog and he freed the two, Jewel flied  to the sky but Nigel caught her.

Blu, knowing this, tried to find the allegoric car that contained the cages, but Mauro, the leader of all the marmosets, fought him and the birds, and the marmoset was of course defeated. With the help of the birds, he found and entered the car, not knowing that Nigel got his back and that the vehicle was going to the Airport.

The birds infiltrated the Smugglers' Plane that was flying to other countries with the help of the Allegoric Car, fighting Nigel and freeing Blu and all the other birds. After the heroic act, Blu finally learned to fly and kissed Jewel, his future wife. Túlio and Linda gave home to them in the Blue Bird Sanctuary, where they found more of Spix Macaws.

Blu invinted the birds to go to Rio De Janeiro to commemorate réveillon with their friends, the birds went to Rio and commemorated with him, not aware of what was to come. Eventually, the birds found Blu in the Amazons, where he found more Blue Spix Macaws and is a now a tribe member, trying to fight Nigel, and the loggers from cutting the trees.

They defeated, Nigel, Big Boss and the loggers, Blu thanked the birds and them went back toPiggy Island.

In the movie, he has 3 hatchlings  and played football versus the Red Macaws.


Blu is a clumsy bird, due to him being raised in rich conditions, he turned into a more pet-like macaw rather than a surviving one. He is also happy and optimist, not being aware of danger, but when he went to the amazon, he fought the loggers like a real macaw, being more of an angry bird.

Blu is first seen in the first comic cutscene, worried with Jewel as the angry birds were also captured and reached the den. However, he only makes a physical appearance in level 1-30 of Smugglers' Den, as a caged bird target with Jewel, after freeing him, he will give 5000 points. He first appears playable chained with Jewel in level 2-30 of Jungle Escape, where he can be used to defeat Nigel but most recommended is to launch her and him at the vines.

In order to use Blu chained with Jewel, the player must launch Jewel and wait until she gains flight, she will drag Blu with him  when he speeds up and he can is used as an extra bird when Jewel can't do most of the job. In level 4-30, after Jewel is captured, Blu can be played as himself, he is very strong.

In order to use only him, the player must hit a structure and he will then start dancing, or just start shaking him when the player wants.
