"My name is Leonard, though my friends call me Chuckles!"
Leonard, The Angry Birds Movie

King Mudbeard, also known as Leonard, is a character that appears in the Angry Birds series. He is a pig and former monarch of the Piggy kingdom, until he was replaced by his son, King Pig Smooth Cheeks.

Concept and creation

"I grew up with a framed pencil drawing of a marble bust of a Roman Emperor, Caracalla, which was hanging in my family house in Rome. The drawing was made by one of my great-grandfathers at the end of the 19th century. While growing up I dreamt of one day being able to draw that well. While drawing Mudbeard for Angry Birds, I designed his beard as a specific tribute to that drawing."
Francesca Natale, character designer

According to The Art of the Angry Birds Movie, Francesca R. Natale, the character designer for The Angry Birds Movie, decided to design Leonard such that he would resemble the Roman emperor, Caracalla, reflecting upon her Italian heritage. Though based on the Emperor, he does not have beard to the snout.

Appearance

Leonard is an anthropomorphic pig with green skin. His head is directly connected to his oval torso without a neck, though he has a green beard separating both parts of his body. His eyes have black pupils, and he has a small snout with two nostrils. Also, his limbs end with cloven hooves. For attire, he sometimes wears a tall, golden crown.

In the games, Leonard was modified to look like a round pig, just like the other characters. In the original Angry Birds, he was a re-skin of King Pig, though with a green beard on his face. In Angry Birds 2, he is a square-shaped pig with green skin and a darker beard. This design was kept in Angry Birds Reloaded, though his skin is lime-colored here.

Personality

Leonard is a charming and charismatic, yet somewhat stupid person. When he first met the birds, he acted polite and solidary towards them, confident that he was going to gain their trust. However, he was also easily frustrated by Red's complaints, whispering to himself that the bird was a useless jerk. It is shown that he always does everything without doubting or fearing the consequences.

Behind this enthusiastic persona, Leonard is a bossy, power-hungry monarch, who has no respect or empathy towards his allies; according to Pork Ogh, he spends all day giving his minions orders, and yelling at them when they fail.[2] He is also very punctual, having punished a group of pigs for having given him a Porkini Mushroom one minute after he expected to have it.[3] However, he still keeps his cool persona in public.

Games

Angry Birds Classic

Leonard appears on level 21 of Bird Island, piloting the Porkchop Express. He as the same strength as King Pig. His appearance is reused from the same character. He has more sprites in the files, but the sprites weren't used because they were edited sprites of King Pig from Angry Birds Space.

Angry Birds Seasons

Leonard appears in the Pigs Arrive! level of Pig Days, where he appears on the

conveyor belt of the Porkchop Express, alongside Ross, which is a normal pig without freckles. He has the same strength as a large pig because he is a normal large pig with a beard. He also appears on the icon. He then reappears on level 1-2 and 2-3 of Piggywood Studios, but he is King Pig with the same beard and has the same strength. It was chosen as King Pig because it's based on the battle scenes from The Angry Birds Movie.

Angry Birds POP!

He once appeared in Angry Birds POP! as a pig that replaced normal pigs during the Movie Event, but now he appears sometimes in the Wanted Pigs event, where he is named Hams Grubber and a reward is given upon defeating him.

Angry Birds 2

As part of The Angry Birds Movie 2 event, Leonard was introduced into the game as an Extra "Bird" alongside

Stella, Hal, and Bubbles. His ability in this game is to launch a snot bomb at his target, which then sends him flying in the opposite direction (like Hal). This is similar to Matilda's egg-laying ability, with the key difference being that Leonard's ability can be aimed in directions other than straight down. Additionally, Leonard can use this ability three times. However, he instantly pops upon collision, probably referencing the other pigs. As with the other Extra Birds, he has his Unlocking Event in which he automatically becomes playable after six days but can be unlocked sooner if the player collects 60,000 Snotty Feathers.

Angry Birds Friends!

Leonard appears in the Prank Wars Tournament as a boss. He has a new appearance in this game, making it more close to his movie appearance and not close to normal pigs, different from the other designs. He also often appears with his crown and/or binocle.

He is a hard to defeat boss like the other boss pigs, but he doesn't need to be defeated to complete the level.

Angry Birds Fight!

Leonard appears as a monster pig on an event that can be found and fought, along with Minion Pig. Despite the game using the Toons Designs,

Gameplay

In the game, like as said above, he appeared in events for the movie as a normal and Awesome Version, where he is golden, and events for his Happy version, in which he wears a cake hat, like Happy Minion Pig. He has the following health for his three versions:

  • (Normal) Leonard Pig: 1500 ABFight HP.png
  • Awesome Leonard Pig: 4250 ABFight HP.png

Relationships

Red

Red is Leonard's worst enemy. They first met when the overweight pig and his minions went to Bird Island. Ever since their first encounter, they have had a rather tense relationship, with Red being skeptical about Leonard, and Leonard being annoyed by the bird's altitude towards him, sometimes cursing him in secret. Eventually, it turned out that Red was right about the pigs when they stole the eggs from Bird Island and bombed Bird Village. When Red and his friends attacked Pig City and rescued the eggs, Leonard's hatred to the bird was aggravated. However, the pig once took a selfie cosplaying Red despite their mutual hatred. Also, the two had to cooperate to stop Zeta from taking over the earth.

Trivia

One of King Pig' facts as shown in the official guide, stating King Mudbeard is his father. This is the oldest known source to mention him, even older than the Angry Birds Movie.

  • In the storyboards of The Movie, Leonard was merely a short pig without a beard. Ross was bigger than him and would have translated what he was saying in symbols.[4]
  • In the Peninsular Spanish version of the films, Leonard is called Leonardo, the Spanish translation to his name. However, the Hispanic American version keeps his name as Leonard.
