Terence is a large bird. Resembling Red in some aspects, he is covered with crimson feathers, small, darker circles in certain parts of his body, and peach feathers on his belly. His most notable characteristics are two feathers on his head that work as his crest, large, black eyebrows on his face, and three small, black feathers on his tail.
Originally, Terence had a non-anthropomorphic, round body, without showing any limbs at all. After the release of The Angry Birds Movie, he received an anthropomorphic body, which borrowed many features of his old design. He now has a large, oval-shaped torso, two short wings, and two short, yellow legs. His head is very large and connected to the torso without a neck. In addition, his feathers on his head were replaced with two longer feathers with black ends, while his tail feathers are now longer and pointy. Also, his eyes would have orange irises. Future releases would occasionally switch between Terence's new design and his old one.
Terence is a rather silent, level-headed person, who has little to no interaction with other people. He only speaks through grunts, and has hardly ever spoken. This is due to him preferring to have a quiet life. He also has very little facial expression and barely shows any emotions on the outside, which makes him look intimidating and scary to both pigs and birds. Because of his lack of communication, no one really knows what goes on in his head.
Despite this grumpy-looking personality, Terence has a soft side he does not show very often. He worries about his friends, and is willing to lend them a hand when necessary. Similarly, he cares deeply about his children (in the movie), and panics whenever they are lost. He can also act friendly and solidary even to his enemies despite his cranky look, such as when he gave the Minion Pigs gifts for Christmas.
Angry Birds (game)
In the original Angry Birds, and its Chinese version, Terence makes his first appearance in the first level of The Big Setup as the main protagonist of the episode, or in the seventh level of Tutorial in the newer versions of the game. In the former, being the only bird who was not kidnapped by the pigs at the moment, Terence made his way through various regions of Piggy Island, rescuing Hal in the process. Later, he defeated the pigs and retrieved the eggs. Terence would appear in later episodes as a recurring character.
In gameplay, Terence is one of the birds the player might be given to launch with the slingshot. Sometimes he will appear individually, though it is more common that he appears in mass. In Jurassic Pork, Terence might also appear in a cage. When said cage is broken, the player will be able to use Terence in the level. Similar to Red, Terence has no ability, and will do nothing when the player taps onto the screen when he is launched. However, he will have more strength compared to other birds, though he can lose his momentum quite easily. Terence can be also made much stronger by using the Power Potion and/or the King Sling, where he will be able to drill through materials without losing his speed, unless he crashes onto an undestructible object. Each Terence the player does not use to complete the level will grant them a bonus of 10.000 points.
Angry Birds Seasons
In Angry Birds Seasons, Terence appears, once again, as a recurring character making his first appearance in Trick or Treat. As such, he appears in every episode of the game, with a somewhat major role in On Finn Ice, where he goes to Finland to visit his cousin, Tony. As with the original Angry Birds, Terence might appear (sometimes in mass) as one of the characters the player can use to launch with a slingshot. In addition, in the 2016 episodes, he might appear inside of a cage, which, when broken, will free him, allowing the player to use him. Terence has the same strength as in the original Angry Birds, and, as with said game, he can be made much stronger with the Power Potion. Tapping onto the screen when Terence is launched will make him scream, though it will have no effect. Each Terence the player does not use to complete the level will grant them a bonus of 10.000 points.
Angry Birds Rio
In Angry Birds Rio, Terence is a playable character that first appears in the first level of Airfield Chase. He also appears in every episode of the game following this one. In the "Rio" levels, Terence has his appearance from the original Angry Birds, while, in the "Rio 2" levels, he was redesigned to look more like in Angry Birds Toons. Terence is as strong as in past games, though he can be even more destructive by using the Power Potion on him. Tapping onto the screen when Terence is launched will make him scream, though it will have no effect. Each Terence the player does not use to complete the level will grant them a bonus of 10.000 points.
Angry Birds Friends
In Angry Birds Friends, Terence is a playable character in both the tournaments, the Piggy Tower, and the Star Cup. While he is a common character, in the Star Cup, there is a chance that he will be the only playable character. Terence appears as the power-up Wingman as well.
In gameplay, Terence's strength is comparable to that from past games, though he can be made more destructive with the Power Potion, the King Sling, and by using special types of slingshots. By combining all of these together, Terence will be able to drill through objects without losing his momentum, unless he crashes onto an undestructible item. In addition, in the Star Cup, the player can give Terence crimson feathers to level him up, allowing him to get more points. Each Terence the player does not use to complete the level will grant them a bonus of 10.000 points.
Angry Birds Space
In Angry Birds Space, Terence (transformed into The Incredible Terence) appears as a playable character who is first playable in Cold Cuts, though he also appears in the last level of the Mirror World version of Pig Bang. In addition, Terence is featured as the powerup Wingman once again.
At the start of the events of the game, Terence and his friends were taking care of their eggs as usual, until they saw a wormhole emerge from the sky. From there, Ice Bird fell and crash landed near the birds' nest. The flock then saw a large claw falling from the wormhole and grabbing a chunk of soil with Ice Bird's eggsteroid. Ice Bird then used the flock's slingshot to go to the wormhole and rescue his eggsteroid. While Terence and the other birds did not mind at first, they soon after found out that their eggs were stolen as well, and they flew to the wormhole. In the way, Terence received a transformation that turned him into The Incredible Terence.
Angry Birds Go!
In Angry Birds Go!, Terence appears as the eighth (or fifth in the 1.0.0 version) rival, in the third circuit of Rocky Roads. He can be obtained after winning one race against him, or three in the 1.0.0 version. In gameplay, his Special Power is to summon gray clouds that will shoot lightnings at nearby rivals. In the boss battles against him, he also summons gigantic rocks to hit the player.
Angry Birds Epic
In Angry Birds Epic, Terence appears as the host of the Arena.
Angry Birds Transformers
Terence appears in Angry Birds Transformers as Heatwave. He is the fireman suited as the real Heatwave. He doesn't move much though, as his personality in the original Angry Birds suits him.
Despite Terence's powerful blast, Terence isn't a good character. It takes a long time for missiles to rain down on the enemy, which if multiple enemies appear, Terence will have a disadvantage. However, Terence can reposition his blasts when the missiles are in the air. This can result in a loss of popped pigs though and could lead to Terence failing the mission.
Angry Birds POP
In Angry Birds POP, Terence is a playable character in the Pop-A-Pig mode. When the Bird Gauge is full, he will be able to use the Smash Pop.
Angry Birds Fight!
In Angry Birds Fight!, Terence was not a playable character; instead, he was the judge of the Arena, similar to Angry Birds Epic, and would lift the flag for the respective winner.
Angry Birds 2
In Angry Birds 2, Terence appears as a playable character the player can use. In older versions, he could be unlocked at the Bamboo Forest, though later updates would allow the player to unlock him with a Bird key if they wish. He can also be used in the Arena, as long as the game allows the player to use him. In addition, Terence has his own daily event, named Terence Trial!, which can be played on Sundays.
In gameplay, Terence can be used in any level as long as the player has a card of his. Nothing will happen when tapping onto the screen when he is launched. However, he will be able to destroy every type of block. While he will lose his momentum quite easily by hitting stone, he can be even more destructive if he uses a fan or other items to boost himself. He will also be able to deal an incredible amount of damage to bosses. While Terence can normally be used only once, filling the Destructometer can give the player a card with him, allowing them to use him again. The amount of points he can gather depends on his Bird Power, which can be leveled up by giving him enough feathers, upgrading the slingshot, etc.
Angry Birds Action!
In Angry Birds Action!, Terence is a playable character. For the first time in the series, he is featured in his anthropomorphic design from The Angry Birds Movie. He is unlocked in the thirtieeth level of Bird Island, or the eightteenth one on Pig Island.
In gameplay, he can run towards a direction by pointing him at a target and shooting. Terence would then hit and bounce off of targets until he runs out of speed. He can only do this three times, and he will disappear afterwards. His strength makes him super destructive and effective.
Like all of the other characters, Terence can be leveled up to give him special boosts; in his bronze stage, he gets the Bounce Boost; in his silver one, he gets the Speed Boost; and in his gold one, he receives an extra move.
Angry Birds Holiday
In Angry Birds Holiday, Terence would have appeared as a playable character. He would take care of the Chill Zone. Not much is known about his involvement in gameplay, as the game was canceled.
Angry Birds Evolution
In Angry Birds Evolution, Terence is a rare red bird. His stats are as follows:
Angry Birds POP Blast
In Angry Birds POP Blast, Terence was introduced as an unlockable character in an upgrade alongside Lumberjack Pig. He is unlocked after obtaining a determined number of points that can obtained at the Piñata. He uses his design from The Angry Birds Movie, though with a more cartoonish look and red feathers instead of the usual crimson ones.
In gameplay, Terence can be played in any level with any pig as long as the player chooses to use him. When his bar is full, he will active his ability, which is an explosive ball that will pop a large number of bubbles, similar to his Smash Pop from Angry Birds POP!
Angry Birds Dream Blast
Terence made his first appearance in the game in it's 1.36.0 update as a background character in the event's banner. He can be seen dressed as Frankenstein's monster.
Angry Birds Journey
Angry Birds Reloaded
In gameplay, Terence's strength is comparable to that from past games, though he can be made more destructive with the Power Potion, the King Sling, and by using special types of slingshots. By combining all of these together, Terence will be able to drill through objects without losing his momentum, unless he crashes onto an undestructible item. Each Terence the player does not use to complete the level will grant them a bonus of 10.000 points.
Powers and abilities
Terence is notable for his incredible strength; one such example was when he and the other birds tried to go from Bird Island to Piggy Island, where he managed to push a large boat full of people on his own. It is also worth noting that Terence is an incredibly durable person, having survived being hit by a large rock about his size, and even a gigantic explosion, with no scratches. Once, he even withstood atmospheric entry.
Despite his gigantic size, Terence is somehow incredibly fast and athletic, and can "teleport" whenever no one is looking at him, allowing him to outrun Chuck within seconds. It has even been confirmed that he is capable of floating in midair, though this was never shown.
Strength and resistance aside, Terence is an expert in engineering and building, being able to build a large wooden duck about his size and a metallic slingshot from scratch. It was also shown twice that he can drive vehicles despite his weight.
- Main article: Wingman
Through unknown means, Terence can transform into Wingman, a superhero-like transformation where he wears a dark blue mask with a yellow W on it. Most of his abilities remain the same.
The Incredible Terence
- Main article: The Incredible Terence
By passing through an extraterrestrial wormhole of some kind, Terence can turn into The Incredible Terence. In this state, his body is tinted green, and he is able to produce small sound waves that can attract nearby pigs towards him. This transformation only appeared in Angry Birds Space.
- Main article: Heatwave
By being exposed to the radiation of an extraterrestrial device, Terence can turn into Heatwave. In this state, he gains a robotical look with a firefighter-like appearance. As an Autobird, he can change his form to turn into a truck or a person. He can also shoot lasers that can destroy a large amount of obstacles. This transformation only appeared in Angry Birds Transformers.
- "These guys are all nuts, right, big man?"
"Are we speaking telepathically, or you're just...?"
"Good talk. Nice chat, great man."
- — Red and Terence, The Angry Birds Movie
Red is one of Terence's friends. The two met for the first time when they were forced by law to attend Matilda's anger managment classes. Initially, both had a rather tense relationship, as Terence distrusted Red, while the latter was frightened by his appearance. However, after Leonard stole the eggs from Bird Island, Terence and the other birds cooperated with Red to get the eggs back. Since then, Terence and Red started to have a better relationship with each other. While Red does not interact with Terence as much as he used to, and still somewhat fears him, both have a mutual respect for each other, and Terence even prepared a surprise party for Red's birthday.
Chuck is other of Terence's friends, and a friendly rival of his. The two first met when they were forced by law to attend Matilda's anger managment classes. For a long time, Chuck has had a rivalry with Terence, competing against him in many races that Terence somehow manages to win. Because of this, it has been shown that Chuck is jealous of the crimson bird's victories. Regardless, the two still have a mutual respect for each other.
Matilda is Terence's wife. The two first met when the large bird was forced by law to attend the white bird's anger management classes. At some point, Terence fell in love with Matilda, even confessing her that he loved her through a painting of his. As this made her feel unconfortable, Matilda left, leaving aside a saddened Terence. However, after she was saved by him, Matilda also fell in love with him, eventually getting married (though in a low-cost wedding) and having four children together. Because of how close she is to him, Matilda is one of the very few people who do not fear Terence.
Tony is Terence's cousin from Helsinki, Finland. It is noted that both are equally serious and grumpy. However, Terence still likes to visit his cousin for Christmas and watch the auroras with him during nighttime.
- In the original Angry Birds' files, Terence was referred to as "bigbrother", which led to popular fan theories and speculation of him being Red's older brother, given their similar appearance. He was also referred to as "Big Brother" in his profile of Toy Care's 3D Toothbrush product presentation. However, Rovio has confirmed that they are not related.
- In the official EU shop website, Terrence is called "Fat Bird", but the url contains "big-brother-plush-toy"
- On May 11th, 2021 at 5:12 P.M EST, the official Garfield Twitter account tweeted the word "terence"
- In Angry Birds: Hatching a Universe, it was confirmed that Red is a desert cardinal, and The World of Angry Birds Official Guide states that Terence is the same species as Red, indicating that he is a desert cardinal as well.
- Terence's name has had other spellings as well, such as Terrence and Terrance.
