Red is a desert cardinal with red feathers that cover most of his body, hence his name. On his head, he has two small red feathers with a circular end, and on his tail, there are two short black feathers with square ends. His belly is peach-colored, and he has small, crimson spots ordered in a horizontal line across his face. In the Wreck the Halls short in late 2011, he was slightly modified to have him with a more cartoonish look. This design was not used very often since then until Angry Birds Toons in 2013, and has become the most common design since then.
Originally, Red had a spherical body without showing any limbs at all. After the release of The Angry Birds Movie, he received an anthropomorphic, pill-shaped body with his head directly connected to his torso without a neck. His crest and tail feathers are also much longer and detailed than before. In addition, his irises were tinted brown. Future releases would occasionally switch between Red's new body and his old one.
In Angry Birds Dream Blast, Red was re-designed again to resemble a hatchling. In this game, he is much shorter, with a round body and small limbs. Angry Birds Journey uses a similar design for its trailers and promotional artwork, although it was somehow more simplified. In the levels of said game, he uses his design from Angry Birds Toons, though modified to have him with a small beak, large eyes, and brown irises.
Red is a short-tempered person. The angriest of all the birds, he is not above using violence when someone annoys him. He is someone who takes his duties very seriously, not willing at all to leave them aside. However, he also likes to discover new things when he is in a day off.
During his earliest years, Red was an antisocial person who was rejected by the rest of people. With an unstable anger (despite him trying to state otherwise), he had always hated being disrespected and made fun of, as he took jokes very seriously. This would result in him getting enraged and/or sad. As he grew up, he also became someone who could get frustrated by anything, acting rude in front of other people not matter how friendly they were towards him. However, after he stopped Leonard from cooking the eggs from Bird Island, Red became much more outgoing and was approved by the rest of the birds, which allowed him to control his anger issues much more than before. Nevertheless, even after these incidents, it was shown that Red could still get angry at anything, sometimes cursing himself for his actions, and showing an open hatred for ridiculous holidays. He himself has admitted that he still suffered from anger issues from time to time. However, he is not ungrateful and appreciates the effort others make for him.
Since he moved to Piggy Island, Red has been very fond of the three eggs he sometime ago found there. As he believes that they will be very important for his species' survival, he takes good care of them and is not willing to leave them alone; once, he was shown spending entire seasons only looking after them. Whenever he is left alone with them, he softly strokes them and tells them bedtime stories, being one of the rare moments where he shows a soft side. Similarly, he spends hours in the morning cleaning and polishing his propierties, specially the slingshot, and constantly checks that its band is perfectly elastic. However, he can easily lose his temper whenever something, such as an insect or a leaf, touches either the eggs or the slingshot. He also returns back to his usual serious self when others come in.
Ever since the first time he met them, Red has had a mutual dislike for the pigs, being skeptical about them during their stay on Bird Island. After he and his friends moved to Piggy Island, his hatred for them was just aggravated. As a result of all the times they tried to steal the eggs, Red has become even more determined to keep the latters safe, which has bordered him on schizophrenia when he is not near them; a notable example of this was shown when, while he was having a forced vacation, Red started to have hallucinations where he saw all surrounding objects as eggs. A similar case was when he saw everything round as pigs, though this was due to his rage after he defeated a group of them. This also made him very paranoid, interpreting small things as a declaration of war, such as imagining the sound of the wind as a battle cry of the pigs. Despite his friends' best attempts of making him forget about them for a while, he never managed to take them out of his mind. He even is enraged by the smallest sight of green due to this.
- "Huh? Me? Lonely? Never."

While serious and hostile, Red likes being with other people, and appreciates their company. He is afraid of losing his friends and being ignored by others, just like in his childhood and adolescence, though he keeps this fact a secret to everyone. It has been confirmed that Red never managed to get rid of this trauma; a notable example of this was when Chuck asked him if he feared something. While Red said that he was not scared of anything, he had some flashbacks of him being left alone by others. Another example was when his friends were preparing him a surprise party for his birthday. Unaware of this, Red thought that his friends had died during an incident, or that they had abandoned him. However, when he realized that they were completely fine, he was so happy to see them that he shedded a tear. Despite him sometimes treating his friends badly, Red respects and trusts them, and is not above leaving aside his duties to visit them, such as when he wanted to go to Rio de Janeiro to visit Blu and Jewel.
Angry Birds (game)
In the original Angry Birds, and its Chinese version, Red appears as one of the main playable characters, first making his appearance in the very first level of Poached Eggs, or the first level of Tutorial in the newest versions. He would later appear in every other episode as a playable character, except in The Big Setup. In the levels and most cutscenes, he appears in his first design, though the card of Tutorial, the shop, the profiles of The Mighty League, and the cutscenes of Piggy Farm and Jurassic Pork have him in his design from Angry Birds Toons.
In gameplay, Red is a common bird used mostly to weaken buildings due to him being rather weak, losing his momentum instantly when he destroys glass. However, the Power Potion and the King Sling power-ups can make him stronger. When tapping onto the screen when Red is launched, he will scream, but this will not do anything. Each Red the player does not use to complete the levels will award them with a bonus of 10.000 points.
In Red's Mighty Feathers, and some of the levels of Flock Favorites and Golden Eggs, Red was transformed after being surroundered by some of the Mighty Eagle's feathers. When tapping anywhere onto the screen when this Red is launched, he will head towards said direction until he crashes onto something. Nonetheless, he is still as weak as in his normal state. This version of Red also appears as the only playable character in the Egg Defender minigame, in an unlimited number. Here, the player will have to use the least amount of Reds as possible to destroy the pigs' vehicles and prevent them from stealing the egg. Unlike in other episodes, the player cannot use power-ups on Red in this minigame due to them being disabled here.
Angry Birds Seasons
In Angry Birds Seasons, and its Chinese version, Red is a playable character first introduced in the first level of Trick or Treat, or the first level of Hammier Things in the most recent versions of the international version. While the levels and the level selection screens until South Hamerica have him in his design from the original Angry Birds, the level selection screens from Power-Up Test Site, Ham Dunk, Tropigal Paradise, and Fairy Hogmother have him in his design from Angry Birds Toons; while, in the level selection screens from Marie Hamtoinette and Piggywood Studios, he is seen in his design from The Angry Birds Movie. In addition, in the international version of the game, since October 2015, Red can be given optional Bird Hats to wear in the levels, though these are entirely cosmetics.
In gameplay, Red has the same strength as in the original Angry Birds, and, like in said game, can be powered up with the Power Potion. He also appears as the powerup Homing Bird, and the Powerbird Telebird. Each Red the player does not use to complete the levels will award them with a bonus of 10.000 points.
Angry Birds Rio
In the "Rio" storyline of Angry Birds Rio, Red and the other birds were all kidnapped and sent to a lair in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The being responsible of the kidnapping, an anthropomorphic cookatoo named Nigel, showed up and revealed that he had kidnapped Red and his flock to sell them in exchange of one hundred thousand dollards, due to them being part of an "exceptionally rare species". Seeing many other birds trapped in the lair as well, Red and his comrades broke free and liberated the caged birds, including two macaws named Blu and Jewel, who were united by handcuffs. Red and his friends, alongside Blu and Jewel, escaped to a jungle as Nigel sent his marmosets to go after them.
After venturing through the jungle and defeating the marmosets and Nigel himself, Red and his group met Rafael, a friend of Blu, who guided them to a beach where they could find Luiz, a bulldog who could take the handcuffs out of Blu and Jewel. After going to the beach, they found the bulldog, who managed to separate the macaws from each other. However, Jewel was soon after caught by Nigel.
That night, Red and his flock ended up in the middle of a carnival, where they defeated Mauro, the leader of the marmosets, and found Jewel, alongside many other kidnapped birds, hidden in a chicken-like vehicle. Just as Blu was about to free his friend, he was caught by Nigel, who escaped with him and the other birds as Red and his friends went after them. Ending up at an airplane, the birds managed to get aboard one plane that had Blu, Jewel and Nigel. After freeing the other birds, Red and his comrades had a final showdown against Nigel. When the cookatoo was defeated, he tried to escape, only to be caught by one of the plane's propellers, damaging it. Despite the odds, Red and his flock managed to control the plane and crash-land on Piggy Island, right before Foreman Pig and a Minion Pig stole their eggs.
In the "Rio 2" storyline, Red and his friends received a postcard from Blu and Jewel, inviting them to go to Rio de Janeiro to visit them. Accepting the invitation, the birds put themselves inside a wooden box that was supposed to be sent to the city. However, they were sent to many different locations throughout the world, and even ended up on the Moon, much for Red's wrath. From there, they entered the earth's atmosphere and landed at the outsides of Rio as they watched the a firework display, for their pleasure. However, they were soon after forced to deal with the remaining hordes of marmosets. Eventually ending up in a harbor, Red and his comrades freed some birds and dolphins, before committing the error of freeing Nigel himself, who had somehow survived the past incident. Later, on a lake, Red and his flock managed to throw Nigel to the waters. They and Blu later dealt with the remaining marmosets.
In gameplay, Red has the same strength as in past games, though he can be even stronger with the Power Potion. In the "Rio" segment, he uses his design from the original Angry Birds, while the "Rio 2" episodes have him in his design from Angry Birds Toons. He is first used in the first level of Smuggler's Den, or in the first level of Playground in the newer versions. When tapping onto the screen when Red is launched, he will scream, but this will not do anything. Each Red the player does not use to complete the levels will award them with a bonus of 10.000 points.
In addition, Red is featured as the powerup Samba Burst. Here, he will be wearing a fruit hat, and will have a happy expression. When he collides onto any surface, he will make all the surrounding objects shake and launch them.
Angry Birds Friends
In Angry Birds Friends, Red appears as a playable character. Originally, he had his design from the original Angry Birds, thoiugh later updates started to show him in his design from Angry Birds Toons. Red is a character that is featured in tournaments, as well as the Piggy Tower and the Star Cup in newer versions. He is first used in the first level of the Piggy Tower which introduces the player to the mechanics of the game. In gameplay, Red has the same strength as in past games, though he can be even stronger with the Power Potion, the King Sling, and/or special slingshots. Originally, when tapping onto the screen when he was launched, he would scream, but this would not do anything. In more recent versions, he does nothing when the screen is tapped. Each Red the player does not use to complete the levels will award them with a bonus of 10.000 points, though this score can be slightly higher in the Star Cup if he is leveled up.
Angry Birds Space
In Angry Birds Space, Red appears as Super Red. At the start of the events of the game, he and his friends were taking care of their eggs as usual, until they spotted a wormhole in the sky and, falling from it, Ice Bird and an eggsteroid. Eventually, they saw a large metallic claw fall from the wormhole, which grabbed a chunk of soil with the eggsteroid and the left with it. Furious, Ice Bird used the group's slingshot to enter the wormhole. While Red and his friends initially did not care about this, they soon after found out that their eggs were stoen as well. Enraged, they used the slingshot to enter the wormhole as well. They soon after found themselves in space, with new transformations, stopping King Pig from stealing the eggsteroids.
In Bad Piggies, Red appears as an enemy. In levels, he is shown with a slightly modified version of his design from the original Angry Birds, though he also makes a small cameo in a cutscene of Tusk 'til Dawn, with his design from Angry Birds Toons.
In gameplay, Red first appears in the seventeenth level of Flight in the Night. He would later appear in most later levels of the episodes, as well as in the first level of Tusk 'til Dawn and the last levels of The Road to El Porkado. He commonly appears as one single bird, and it is very rare to see him in mass. At first, he will be sleeping, though he can be woken up with the noise of the player's vehicle. If the camera is not showing Red, an icon showing his location and if he is about to be woken up will appear. If Red is awake, he will try to detect the player's presence. If he succeeds, he will jump onto the slingshot and launch himself towards the player's vehicle. Red is quite strong, and can damage fragile vehicles, unless the player uses the Super Glue on them.

Angry Birds Epic
- "Protects the party. A real hero!"
- — Description, Angry Birds Epic
In Angry Birds Epic, Red appears as the main default character. At the start of the events of the game, he and Chuck were minding their business as usual, until they were attacked by hordes of Minion Pigs led by Wizpig and Prince Porky. The pigs managed to defeat the birds in no effort, stole their eggs and their personal equipment, and kidnapped Chuck. Furious, Red ventured through the South Beach and rescued his yellow friend. At the Cobalt Plateaus, they got one egg and found Matilda crying because her garden was destroyed by Porky. The white bird soon after joined their group. The flock then chased Porky through the Golden Fields, until the pig used his air balloon to escape to Desert Island, which supposed a problem for the flock as they could not cross the Limestone Lagoon that separated Pig Island and Desert Island. Fortunately, Bomb came in with his Bird Ship, only for him to be attacked by a Pirate, who stole the ship's rudder. After retrieving the rudder and rescuing Jake, Jay and Jim, who had been surrounded by the prince and some troops, Red and his comrades managed to retrieve the second egg on the castle.
Later, the flock passed through the Pirate Coast, the Slingshot Woods and the Great Cliffs, before going to the Star Reef to rescue the third egg. Back at the Great Cliffs, Red, Chuck and Bomb were fooled by the pigs and kidnapped. While Chuck and Bomb were fred, the cage Red was in was taken to the sky by Prince Porky's airship. However, the other birds, with the help of Professor Pig, managed to build their own Airship and rescue the red bird. At the Snowy Peak, they got the fourth egg and ventured through the Islands in the Sky, the Pumpkin Plateau, and the Square Forest.
Right outside of the entrance of Pig City, where the fifth and final egg was, Red and his flock found themselves unable to continue with their adventure due to the walls and catapults blocking their way though. By Professor Pig's advice however, they went to the Moorlands and got a Submarine, which they used to pass through a mine field and enter the city. There, they had a duel against Wizpig. Later, they broke through the castle and got the fifth egg.
In a sudden turn of events, Wizpig revealed his true colors to the others and used his magic to get the egg and King Pig's crown before going to the Hog Head Mountain and make himself a Magic Shield to protect himself there. The flock followed him and managed to destroy the shield by defeating the enemies that protected it. Red and his comrades had a definitive showdown against Wizpig, who was aided by Lefty and Righty. However, the pig was defeated. With his last strengths, Wizpig used his own magic to transform into Demonic Wizpig, a state so powerful that no bird could defeat him. However, with the help of Prince Porky, who gave Demonic Wizpig the final strike, the flock got the fifth egg and King Pig's crown. The group then went back to Pig City and gave the king his crown, with him thanking them.
In gameplay, Red's statistics in Angry Birds Epic are as follows:
Angry Birds Stella
In Angry Birds Stella, Red made a couple of cameo appearances. His first cameo was on Willow's phot where a red circle is next to a black circle and a yellow triangle. His second cameo was in Stella Finds the EggSpark, manifesting the body of Optimus Prime, to promote Angry Birds Transformers (see below). Red's third and final cameo was in an arcade game that featured him on there.
Angry Birds Transformers
Optimus is a charismatic leader whose courage and compassion inspire everyone he meets. He's brave, powerful and wise. If he has one weakness it's that he's always focused on the well-being of his fellow Autobirds. Also, he's straightforward and to the point - so don't expect him to crack any jokes. And he sometimes loses his temper, too.
Optimus isn't driven to fight by hatred or vengeance, but a desire to achieve freedom for all and end the destruction the EggBots are causing.
Actually, fighting against the EggBots is causing Optimus real problems. They're the Eggs - so they have to be protected at all costs, right? But they're destroying everything and must be stopped.
Optimus is a good, all-round fighter, with no major weaknesses. With his balance of firepower, toughness, and speed he's able to take on any situation.
His weapon takes a short time to hit its target, so it's best to focus your fire on one threat at a time. It may not do the most damage but it never overheats or needs to reload, so just hold the screen.
His (Energon Optimus Prime's) Energon overcharged weapon is enormously powerful, but Energon is volatile, so he takes a lot more damage, too!
Energon Optimus fires three lasers at once, and the weapon has a super quick reload time. Like the regular Optimus, you can focus on one enemy at a time, or, if powerful enough, you can swipe across the screen and deal with a spread of damage.
Variant characters are for expert players! If they complete an Event they earn loads of bonus coins, but if they fail they get... nothing. Ouch!
- Optimus' anger problem in this game is a carryover from the Live-Action movies
Where Optimus Prime is a leader, Ultra Magnus is a dedicated soldier, 100% focused on protecting the innocent. That may make him a bit blunt, sure, but he's got a job to do. It's his role to take the fight to the Deceptihogs... no wait, to the Pigs... no, hang on, they're not the bad guys either... Take the fight to the Eggbots! Yeah! Grr!
Ultra Magnus is extremely disciplined when carrying out the mission at hand - and right now that's to the end the destruction of Piggy Island and keep the EggBots from trashing everything. If that means he has to work with the Deceptihogs for a while that's what he'll do. Of course, once the island is safe it's time for a new mission: Operation Splat Those Pigs!
His weapon fires powerful bursts but takes time to reload, so watch out you don't get caught at the wrong moment. Sometimes it's worth holding your fire so he has the chance to reload. Ultra Magnus has a good mix of power, toughness, and speed, but isn't focused on any one thing, so you'll need to adapt to whatever's coming at you. Are you ready, solider? Yeah? High-five! Yeah!
Nemesis Prime was created to be a dark opposite of Optimus Prime, to cause mayhem and trouble whenever he wants. But the EggBots had forgotten two things: Angry Bird Red is a hero! And Optimus Prime is a hero!
So now Nemesis Prime fights for good; helping his teammates battle to reclaim Piggy Island! Ha! In your eggy face, silly EggBots!
Hi i'm Blurr i'm without doubt the fastest most furions angry autobird around. I'm fast talking, fast thinking, fast driving and fast fring. You get the idea... Can't stop, got togo faster!!! Beep, Beep.
Yap, that's Blurr alright. Let's slow things back down. Too fast for his own good that one! Althrough, if you ever nead a message delivered fast, he's your guy. Not only is his weapon fast firing, he is known to travel so fast that it seems like the rest of the world isin slow motion! All this rapid movement bulids up an appettile fast, which requires both energon and most importantly candy! Nom Nom.
Blurr is very different from the other incarnations of Red in the game. Instead of a truck, he is a car. A very fast, futuristic, floating car. And by very fast, I mean really really fast. He’s in fact so fast that every time you switch to vehicle mode, everything starts moving in slow motion! So wouldn’t Chuck have been a better choice to portray this character? Maybe...
Nemesis Prime's gameplay description:
Nemesis Prime's anti-gravity gun doesn't do much damage per shot. Instead, it launches pigs and blocks into the air and lets gravity do the rest!
To ensure that you get the maximum lift, aim directly at pigs or for the top few blocks of the tower.
Angry Birds Transformers
In Angry Birds Transformers, Red appears as Optimus Prime (Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Energon Optimus Prime, Ultimate Optimus Prime, Nemesis Optimus, and Epic Optimus Prime).
Angry Birds POP!
In Angry Birds POP!, Red appears as a permanent character. Initially, when the game was called Angry Birds Stella POP!, he was a limited character who could only be used during an event.
In gameplay, Red appears in the "Drop the Pigs" and "Defeat King Pig" levels, though he can be optionally replaced with a Guest Star. When the Bird Gauge is full, he will be able to use the Rock Pop, where he will be able to pop a short line of bubbles.
Angry Birds Fight!
In Angry Birds Fight!, Red was the first out of six playable characters the player could choose to use. Other than being a playable character, he also appeared as an icon in the matching board. Like all of the other birds in the game, Red was customizable to the player's preference, and the player would be able to purchase costumes and weapons for Red with in-game currency.
In gameplay, the player could not play directly as Red; rather, they had to make him attack his enemy by till-matching various small birds. Matching three birds would have popped them out, and matching four or more would activate the specific bird's special ability. If four of Red's icons were matched, then random panels would be blocked out with wooden boxes on the opponent player's matching board.
Once the round was over, the two battling players began fighting, and the player's success would entirely be based on how many points they were able to gather.
Angry Birds 2
In Angry Birds 2, Red appears as the first playable character the player can use, making his first playable appearance in the very first level of the game. He can also be used in the Arena, as long as the game allows the player to use him. In addition, Red has his own daily event, named Red's Rumble, which can be played on Mondays.
In gameplay, Red can be used in any level as long as the player has a card of his. When tapping onto the screen when he is launched, he will make a small scream that will produce a short, red line. If a building is caught by that line, it will be pushed to the other side. This ability works better in tall, unstable buildings, and will not have much effect in structures that are well held. While Red can normally be used only once, filling the Destructometer can give the player a card with Red, allowing them to use him again. The amount of points Red can gather depends on his Bird Power, which can be leveled up by giving him enough feathers, upgrading the slingshot, etc.
Angry Birds World Tour
In Angry Birds World Tour, Red is a playable character who is first used in the first level of North America, and is a recurring character in the other episodes. Similar to past physics-based puzzle games, he has no ability when launched.
Angry Birds Action!
In Angry Birds Action!, Red appears as the first and default character the player is given. In gameplay, he can run towards a direction by pointing him at a target and shooting. Red would then hit and bounce off of targets until he ran out of speed. He can only do this three times, and he will disappear afterwards.
Angry Birds Football
In Angry Birds Football, Red appeared as the only playable character, as a member of the team Mighty Feathers. For the first time in an Angry Birds game, Red used his design from The Angry Birds Movie, in promotion of the film.
In gameplay, the player could upgrade Red' skills, in different categories that ranged from pace, power, technique, and defense that helped the birds' performances. These skills could be raised by training the birds or using in-game currency to upgrade them instantly. To win, the player had to pass the ball around in a special arrangement to the other birds in order to make the goal.
Angry Birds Blast!
In Angry Birds Blast!, Red is a non-playable character. In the game, various Reds were kidnapped and put in balloons. To free them, the player has to tap two or more balloons of the same colors that are connected. They can also use the Slingshot to free one single Red instantly. The Red birds appear in red-colored balloons.
Angry Birds Evolution

In gameplay, Red can be summoned in any level by matching four items of the same color. When the player taps onto him and then slides the finger to any side, he will run towards that side, cleaning items in his way, popping pigs, and damaging boxes. However, if he is touched by other bird, or is not used by the player when they complete the level, he will split into two and will run either horizontally or vertically. This means that, for example, vertically, one Red will be running towards the top part of the screen, while the other one will run to the bottom part.
Angry Birds Dream Blast
In Angry Birds Dream Blast, Red appears as a supporting character. This is also the first time in the Angry Birds series where he uses a new design that does not come from past games or media; instead, he now looks like a hatchling. He also appears as a profile picture that the player can unlock and choose.
In gameplay, Red can be summoned by popping four or more bubbles of the same color at the same time. The more bubbles are popped, the larger Red will be. When he is tapped or touched by other bird, he will make a horizontal line that will pop every bubble in its way. He will then disappear. Combining two Reds will summon one Chuck.
Angry Birds: Isle of Pigs
In both versions of Angry Birds: Isle of Pigs, Red is one of the four playable characters, and the first one used by the player. He is used for the first time in the first level of Sandy Beach. He can also be added as an optional character in the Level Builder mode. In this game, he has his sound effects from Angry Birds 2, which are taken from some episodes of Angry Birds Toons. When launched, Red will have no ability, which is why he is mainly used to push buildings.

Powers and abilities
Despite not having undergone any notable training, Red is a very skilled and powerful fighter, having been able to break though Pig City on his own many times with no wounds or scratches. His strength is one of his most notable abilities; though most of the time he cannot break stone blocks, Red is strong enough to pick up and launch pigs with ease, and has even been capable of breaking though many different walls and a metal wall within a few seconds with no additional equipment. In addition, his speed has let him run though entire mountains and onto water with no problems.
Red has demonstrated to have a great durability and resistance against attacks. He has been able to survive massive explosions and falls from high heights, and even withstood atmospheric entry once.
Strength and speed aside, Red is able to hide all his limbs to turn himself into a ball, though this ability has only been used once.
By passing though an extraterrestrial wormhole of some kind, Red can transform into Super Red. In this state, Red has some different body features, the most notable of which is his black and white glasses, which he can use to track and analyze enemies. However, most of his abilities remain the same. This transformation first appeared in Angry Birds Space.
Unnamed Angry Birds transformation
By using a few of the Mighty Eagle's feathers, Red can have a, so far, unnamed transformation. He looks the same as his normal counterpart, except that he is now surrounded by a few white and red feathers. In this state, Red can head himself towards any location he wants to. However, he can only use this ability once before losing the feathers. This transformation only appeared in the original Angry Birds and its Chinese version.
Through unknown means, Red can transform into the Telebird. In this state, he now wears a magenta and yellow helmet on his head. As the Telebird, Red now can teleport himself and surrounding objects to any place he wants to, allowing him to pass through solid objects. However, he can only use this ability once. This transformation only appeared in the international version of Angry Birds Seasons.
By unknown means, Red can transform into the Homing Bird, where he wears a gray radar on his head. In this state, Red automatically heads himself towards any pig that is near him. However, he can only use this ability once. This transformation only appeared in Angry Birds Seasons and its Chinese version.
While not having any physical weaknesses, it is confirmed that Red is allergic to pollen. In addition, he can be scared quite easily by a scarecrow, and will be unable to do anything whenever he finds one. He can also be distracted whenever he is trying to aim with the slingshot, being scared by almost any sound, including his own farts.
Red's best friend is Chuck. The two first met when they assisted Matilda's anger management classes. While Red was initially annoyed by the yellow bird's quick-paced personality, which often made him feel uncomfortable, they quickly became friends. Though Red can still be annoyed by Chuck's arrogant personality, he acts as a parental figure towards him and respects and trusts him. In addition, when Chuck was seemingly crushed by the slingshot, Red regretted his friend's "loss", only to immediately afterwards find out that he was indeed alive and perfectly fine, confusing him.
Other of Red's friends is Bomb. The two first met when they were forced to assist Matilda's anger management classes. While they did not get along very well at first, they quickly became friends as they investigated about Leonard and the pigs' hostage on Bird Island. Red acts as a parental figure towards Bomb and respects and trusts him, though he can be annoyed by his stupidity.
Jay, Jake and Jim
Red is good friends with Jay, Jake and Jim. Before the Blues were born, Red saved the egg containing them from the claws of Leonard and his minions. Despite the brothers' irresponsibility and disobedience, Red still tolerates them and acts as a parental figure towards them. Also, whenever the triplets save the eggs from the pigs, Red likes spending a while playing with them as a reward.
- "And this is Terence!"
"More like 'Terrifying'."
- — Matilda, Terence and Red, The Angry Birds Movie
Terence is a close friend of Red. They first met when they were forced by law to attend Matilda's anger management classes, though they did not get along at first, as Red feared Terence, even calling him "Terrifying" the first time he saw him. However, after Leonard stole the eggs from Bird Island, Terence and the other birds cooperated with Red to get them back. Since then, Terence and Red started to have a better relationship with each other, though they do not interact very often with each other.
- "So, I'm curious. Why didn't we just team up with Chuck? He is definitely faster than me."
"No. he is too laid."
"Why not Bomb then? You know, he is heavier than me."
"Just no. You're perfect."
"Oh. That's funny. I though we weren't... compatible."
- — Red and Silver, The Angry Birds Movie 2
Silver is another of Red's friends. She was introduced to him by Chuck, though they had a rather tense relationship, as he was not too fond of her "know-it-all" behavior. As time passed however, they started to get along. Currently, they are good friends, and have a mutual respect towards each other.
- "Look, Red, I know we've had our differences..."
"Oh, like when you tried to eat our young?!"
- — Leonard and Red, The Angry Birds Movie 2
Perhaps Red's first enemy was Leonard. The two first met when Leonard and the other pigs went to Bird Island. Despite the pigs acting friendly towards the birds, Red was skeptical about Leonard, insulting him many times and even making paintings about him dying in multiple ways. It soon after turned out that Red was right about Leonard when he and the other pigs stole the eggs from Bird Island and bombed Bird Village. One day later, Red and the other birds managed to go to Piggy Island, the pigs' home, and destroy Pig City and rescue the eggs, which only aggravated Leonard's hatred for the red bird. Despite this, the two were forced to cooperate to stop Zeta from conquering the earth. However, in the secret meeting, they argue with each other about who should be the assistant.
It is shown that Red hated King Pig Smooth Cheeks much more than he hated Leonard. While it is unknown how the two first met, perhaps the earliest incident involving both the monarch and the bird was when the former decided to steal the birds' eggs to eat them. Despite having been defeated countless times, King Pig has never given up, and this, as well as him surviving his encounters with the Angry Birds, has made him a constant threat to the eggs and a thorn to Red's side.
Red is in neutral terms with Prince Porky. The two first met when King Pig sent Porky and Wizpig to steal the birds' eggs. While both were initially enemies, they had to team up after Wizpig betrayed the pigs and stole King Pig's crown and an egg. Later, at the Hog Head Mountain, Porky cooperated with the Red and his comrades to defeat Wizpig, who had just turned into Demonic Wizpig. Following that battle, Porky shared a time with the Angry Birds. The current state of Red's relationship with Porky remains unknown.
- An officially licensed t-shirt entitled “Nerdy Birdy” showed Red with glasses and a bow tie. The image was so popular that a plush version was created. It should be noted that the Nerdy Birdy is not a new character, just Red wearing a bow tie and eyeglasses.
- Red and Silver are the only birds to be named after a color.
- Red in the games is one of the more younger characters in the franchise, as in Toons he is almost the same height at them.
- As of 2016, Red is the official United Nations (UN) Ambassador of Climate Change.
- Red has been featured in 2 ads for one of Rovio's games called "Small Town Murders", where one his body frame is seen through a brick wall with feathers in the air and the other is a chalk sketch of his body with feathers and yellow cartridges scattered on the ground.
- Could perform this ability in Sonic Dash.
