"So... Raw recruits, eh? Do you have what it takes to be minions? Do you have the primal need to defeat the Angry Birds? Do you have the heart of underling? The sheer determination of a subordinate? The burning desire to mindlessly follow orders no matter how insane they might be?"
Corporal Pig, Angry Birds Comics #4

The Minion Pig is a character that appears in the Angry Birds series. He is a pig and a part of the Piggy kingdom on Piggy Island, as well as a minion of Gale on Golden Island.

Stupid by nature, the Minion Pigs are in the lowest rank of the Piggy kingdom society.[2] However, they love having fun, and their stupidity makes them obedient soldiers that can be a great threat to their enemies.

Appearance

Originally, the Minion Pigs were round-shaped pigs covered in lime-colored skin. They had small eyes and a medium-sized pig snout in between. On top of their head, they had two small ears. On their back, they also had a short, corkscrew-like tail. In Angry Birds Chrome, the Minion Pigs were slightly modified to be given a more cartoonish look and larger eyes.

In The Angry Birds Movie, the Minion Pigs' design was changed to give them an anthropomorphic body with cloven hooves at the end of their limbs. The head is now directly connected to the torso without a neck. Future releases would switch between this design and the old one.

In Angry Birds Journey, the Minion Pigs got another design. In artwork, they look similar to the Minion Pigs from The Angry Birds Movie, though shorter and with a younger appearance. In levels, they have their earliest designs, though square in shape.

Personality

A group of Minion Pigs bowing to Gale, who is wearing a crown she had just found, from "A Fork in the Friendship".

Overall, most Minion Pigs are hard workers. They are very loyal to their ruler, who they obey if the latter wears their crown. This means that, with some exceptions, they cannot recognize their ruler if the latter is not wearing their crown.[3][4] Without a ruler, the Minion Pigs often wander around looking for someone to obey.[5]

The Minion Pigs are very stupid by nature, being unable to spell the alphabet, and ignoring warning signs.[6] No matter the situation, they will always try to find something to have fun with, such as the lights turning out[7] or them making funny sounds,[8] which more often than not leads them to get distracted. To compensate this however, they never give up, no matter how many times they have failed, and constantly try and try again until they manage to achieve their goals.[1] This makes them a great threat to their enemies, specially combined to the great numbers of them.[9]

Game appearances

Angry Birds (game)

A Minion Pig in the first level of Poached Eggs, from the original Angry Birds.

In the original Angry Birds, and its Chinese version, the Minion Pigs appear as the most common enemies. Throughout the story of the game, they steal the Angry Birds' eggs so that King Pig can eat them. However, they always fail.

In gameplay, the Minion Pigs appear as enemies in almost every single level of the game, most of the time in mass, and sometimes wearing attires such as construction helmets and a scientist vest. The pigs can also appear in different sizes. The player must pop all Minion Pigs in the levels to advance in the game. The Minion Pigs are extremedly weak, and can be popped easily. When doing do, the player will get 5.000 points. One Minion Pig also appears in the Level Failed screen, laughing at the player.

Angry Birds Seasons

In Angry Birds Seasons, and its Chinese version, the Minion Pigs are common enemies. While in the levels, they are shown in their earliest design, the Level Failed screens and the ending photos of the episodes before South Hamerica have them in their design from Angry Birds Chrome. Later promotional material would have them in their designs from Angry Birds Toons, with the exception of Marie Hamtoinette, Summer Camp and Piggywood Studios, which have them in their designs from The Angry Birds Movie.

In gameplay, they appear in almost every level of the game, most of the time in mass. It has also become common to have them wearing different attires. Similar to the original Angry Birds, they are very weak and can be popped easily. When doing do, the player will get 5.000 points.

Angry Birds Rio

In the "Rio" storyline of Angry Birds Rio, one single Minion Pig went to steal the Angry Birds' eggs with Foreman Pig. As they were about to do so however, they saw a plane about to crash nearby. Afterwards, it was revealed that the Angry Birds were the ones piloting it. The birds were relieved that their eggs were safe while the pigs watched in shock behind a bush.

Angry Birds Space

In Angry Birds Space, the Minion Pigs are known as Space Pigs. They first appear in the first level of Pig Bang, and would later appear in most of the other levels of the game. In gameplay, the Space Pigs can be found inside of gravitational fields or in breathing bubbles that allow them to be in outer space. They have the same features as in past games, being the weakest of all pigs. However, they can be frozen by Ice Bird's explosions. In this state, they will be much weaker. The Space Pigs can also be frozen if they are outside of a gravitiaional field without any bubbles, and will pop after one second. Popping a Space Pig will grant the player 5.000 points.

Angry Birds Friends

In Angry Birds Friends, the Minion Pigs appear as enemies in tournaments and the Piggy Tower. They have the same features as in past games, being the weakest of all enemies. Popping a Minion Pig will grant the player 5.000 points.

Powers and abilities

While not having any superhuman abilities, the Minion Pigs can use their tails for a variety of things. They have been able to turn them into swords[10] and functional corkscrews[11] with no problem. In addition, they are experienced builders; once, a Minion Pig managed to build three entire houses on his own.[12]

The Minion Pigs are able to cheat death; when they are hurt enough, they will be sent to a white limbo, where they will be healed and then taken back to the normal world.[13] There are also Minion Pigs who managed to revive from the dead, such as the undead enemies and the Zombie Pigs.

Weaknesses

The Minion Pigs are very weak to attacks and can be popped very easily.
