- "Uh, did we win?"
- — Hal, The Angry Birds Movie
Hal[note 1] is an emerald toucanet who serves as the seventh member of Red's Flock in the Angry Birds franchise. He was introduced in the episode Danger Above and has continued to appear in multiple Angry Birds games since; however, he remains as a lesser-represented character in the series. Hal's defining trait is his ability to boomerang back, usually due to him opening his beak wide open, though he sometimes does not need to activate his ability by doing this. Hal's personality has varied within the Angry Birds franchise, as he has been shown to be a young and clumsy character in some media, while being depicted as an older, wiser one in others; however, he is consistently shown to love adventure and plays the banjo as a hobby.
Hal has a huge, orange beak (being the only bird in Red's flock with a beak color other than yellow). He has three top black feathers, like Matilda, and three spiky black feathers on his back (like Chuck). He has two eyes on either side of his beak with medium-sized eyebrows, and pure white chest feathers. In his earlier cartoon appearance he gains a three black thick brows in each sides, green eyes, his huge beak are dark yellow and orange and his feathers is medium green.
In Angry Birds Toons and Angry Birds Go!, Hal appears to have a near resemblance to a real Toucanet and now have black linings in each sides and gains a yellow eyebags on his eyes. He does not have the three top black feathers on his head and his huge beak is now in a different shades of orange. His feathers are now emerald green and his white stomach is not seen.
In The Angry Birds Movie, Hal appears as a green anthropomorphic Emerald Toucanet and is a combination between his classic game counterpart and his earlier cartoon appearance. His beak reverts back into orange and has orange feet. His black feathers on top is now green as the feathers at the back is also green and his stomach is now pale beige instead of white.
Hal has been inconsistent in terms of his personality, with different media showing different depictions of the character.
In multiple instances, like the Angry Birds Comic Series, Hal is shown as a very mature character. He is shown to have a deep love for the pleasures in life, as when he is found he is usually with his banjo or camping. He is a rather adventurous bird, and in Angry Birds Go!, he wears an adventurer's hat (which was included in promo art and the game toys and telepods) He finds no desire to be filled with anger and usually doesn't take place in any of the bird's fights with the pigs.
However, in situations like the Summer Pignic short movie, or The Angry Birds Movie, Hal is shown to be an extremely clumsy and goofy character. He is clearly much younger, and in place of a raspy, creaky voice he is given a squeaky, nasally one. Unlike his other, much different personality, this version of him has an extreme desire to become angry and fight the pigs, along with being an actual "angry" bird.
Powers and abilities
- Boomerang - Hal's trademark ability is to spin back like a boomerang.
- Tornatoes - Only showcased in Angry Birds Go!, Hal has the ability to summon tornatoes onto a player, significantly weakening them.
- Transformation - When the EggSpark crashlanded on Piggy Island, Hal was transformed into Grimlock, Trypticon and Volcanicus.
- Musician - Hal likes to play the banjo.
- previously known by fans as "Boomerang Bird"
- Hal did not make his pain noises, but he made Chuck's pain noises when being a corpse, thus making it the only bird without an original pain noise. This is probably because in the games, they have the same voice actor
- Hal has a different launch voice in Angry Birds Seasons as of the Ham'o'ween update. However, later versions, along with the PC and Mac versions of Angry Birds Classic have the alternative voice of the bird.
- Hal is the only bird that never appeared in Angry Birds Toons.
- Hal is comparable to Ice Bird in that they first appeared trapped before being saved by the birds and becoming playable in the next level.
- Hal's eyebrows in the older version of his sprite disappear when he blinks.
- In Piglantis, Hal's ability does not work when he is underwater. The corpse will appear when the ability is activated.
- In Angry Birds Friends, when Hal's boomerang ability is activated, he boomerangs back at a lower angle than in the main games.
