Sardines (originally called the " Mighty Mouse" ) are used to summon the  Mighty Eagle in some games.
Sardines are brick-shaped metal can with bigger borders and a pink sardine symbol on top. It wasn't originally a Sardine Can, but rather a mouse. The mouse was gray and round, with a separate oval head with big round ears with pink skin, a black snout and large clueless eyes with black pupils. The mouse also had a light belly and a long tail.
, the design of the sardines can is different, and the movie has Mighty Eagle eating a sardine.
The Angry Birds Movie
Debuting in the
Ham 'Em High update with the Mighty Eagle on iOS and in the same update which added power-ups on Android, it was used to summon said character when pressing the Mighty Eagle button.
When the player touches the Mighty Eagle button next to the pause button, all the birds disintegrate and a can of sardines spawns on the slingshot. When the player shoots the sardines from the
slingshot, the Mighty Eagle comes down to attack in a wide V-Shape. The Sardines themselves can pop pigs and knockdown weak structures. They are very bouncy and will bounce off most surfaces. The best position for them is the front or in-between structures, so Mighty Eagle may get a higher chance to destroy most objects in the level.
The sardine once again appears as an object used in the game, which debuted in the
v1.5.2 update on iOS and in the same update which added power-ups on Android. In Year of the Dragon, it gets replaced by the Red Koi Fish. In Ham Dunk, a backpack replaces it.
