    Jay, Jake, and Jim, otherwise known as the Blue Birds and The Blues are characters in the Angry Birds series of games created by Rovio Entertainment. They were first introduced in 2009 with the original launch of the game. The Blues are Mountain Bluebirds and a set of triplets. Originally, they were presented as a single small blue bird in animated shorts and promotional art.

Appearance

All 3 birds are completely identical. They have slightly longer beaks than Red, notable red-orange bags under their eyes, and unlike the other birds they have no eyebrows. They have 2 top blue feathers and 2 black back feathers. Additionally unlike the other birds, they have no chest feathers.

In the film version, The Blues are small anthropomorphic Blue Birds as their eye color are different, Jay's eyes are blue, Jake's eyes are teal and Jim's eyes are brown. Both Jay and Jake has a yellow feet while Jim's are orange.

Character

The Blues Toy Care

The Blues — Jay, Jake and Jim

Personal Data

  • Name: Jay, Jake, and Jim (The Blues)
  • Known Aliases: Blue Bird(s), Lightning Birds (from Angry Birds Space), Duplicate Birds
  • Group Affiliation: The Flock, The Flock in Space, The Flock in a Galaxy Far, Far Away
  • Known Relatives: Each other (Triplets), Greg Blue (father), Olive Blue (mother)
  • Best Friends: Each other, Bomb, Bubbles
  • Voiced by: Heljä Heikkinen (Angry Birds Toons), Noah Schnapp, Owen Vaccaro, and Pierce Gagnon (The Angry Birds Movie)

Ability

They first appeared in Theme 1-10 , Poached Eggs and have appeared as a playable character in every version and episode of the game released so far, though he is not necessarily in all levels. In the Fuji TV exclusive episode: Sakura Ninja, the Blue Birds appear dressed as taiko drummers. This was the first time they have appeared in costume in any game and completely new game sprites were created for this episode.

These birds are the weakest playable characters but have the unique ability to multiply into three identical copies. This ability is triggered by touching the screen or clicking the mouse (depending on the version of the game the player is using).

The Blues' splitting ability can be exploited in different ways. By splitting just before impact with an obstacle, the three birds' force on impact is concentrated for maximum force. Alternately, the birds can be split early allowing them to spread out and hit more obstacles at once.

While the Blues do not cause much damage with most obstacles, they do have a unique strength against glass/ice, able to penetrate it with surprising ease. They also can damage or destroy damaged shards of wood. However, they cannot destroy stone at all.


  • Have The Blues get near the glass. Before making contact, split them. They will cause major destruction on it.
  • If you use The Blues on wood, they will shatter one piece of it, even though you already split them.
  • Try to not use The Blues on stone. They are useless on it. However, they can topple it over, but it's not worth using them on stone.
  • Use it if you fire too high to attack like an airstrike.

Personality

The Blues, like the others, get surprised when it comes to egg theft and smuggled birds. They are daring and inquisitive and often get themselves into trouble and cause mischief, causing the Flock to have to intervene. An example may include the episode Egg Sounds, where the Blues trick Red, Chuck, and Matilda into thinking that the eggs are speaking. They are the youngest members of The Flock, excluding Bubbles.[1]Unlike the other birds, they are fond of Mighty and they visit him often, according to the comics. In the toons, they are unruly, mischievous, and playful. All the Birds treat The Blues specially, as they are only children. For example, Red would teach them respect, Bomb would play with them, Matilda teaching them to eat healthy, and Hal to look after them. 

While the Blues aren't as dedicated to egg-protecting as Red, they still care for the eggs and always somehow rescue them from the pigs when they are captured. They are very cunning and can see someone's intentions almost immediately, as seen in True Blue? and Catching the Blues. They hate being controlled and don't like following other's ways, as they think they can do it better. They demonstrate this in Full Metal Chuck, where they hate following Chuck's orders and are able to complete all of his challenges fluently and better than him.

The Blues description from an old Angry Birds Official Website

"The Blues are the pranksters of the flock who love nothing more than playing tricks and getting up to mischief. Trouble-making is what they do best – like the time they dressed Chuck in a pig costume as he slept and then called over Terence to deal with the green intruder. Let’s just say Chuck jumped up pretty fast after seeing the terrifying Terence at his bedside! Arrrgggghhhhh……!!! These guys may have a carefree attitude, but they’re also super-smart. When playing a prank they find clever ways to hide their tracks and keep everyone guessing! And how about this for a special power...? They cling on to each other to look like a single blue bird, and then in mid-flight unleash a surprise three-way attack to bombard the pigs from different directions! Boom!! If Red and Matilda are the mature birds looking over the flock, then the Blues are the young little hatch lings. When they get caught being mischievous, they quickly show those helpless puppy eyes and then it’s impossible to stay mad at them! Matilda wants them to eat vegetables, Red talks about responsibility, and Bomb teaches them how to have fun – so guess who they like the best?"

The Blue's modified description from the Birdsonality Test:

"The Blue Birds are the pranksters. Quick and inventive, they keep their friends amused with their latest mischief. They enjoy arguing and especially playing. Being such a creative type, they can have a hard time focusing on tasks, especially when they feel tedious or routine. But when they do focus, they are resourceful and inventive problem-solvers."

History

Main Article: Angry Birds

This is the Blue's first appearance. They were often thought to only be one bird who could clone himself. The Blues appear in every theme of the game, and also appear in every cutscene. They are considered original members of the flock and thus have appeared in every installment after the original game.

They are first introduced in Poached Eggs, level 1-10 in a glass and stone structure. This is where most players learnt that The Blues were only able to destroy glass and not other structures.

The Blues were kidnapped, along with Red, Chuck, Bomb, Matilda, and Hal, in The Big Setup and they were saved by Terence, the Big Brother Bird.

Many fans adore the Blues due to being the only bird whose specialty is glass, and also for their cuteness.

Main Article: Angry Birds Seasons

The Blues made their second appearance to what was originally Angry Birds Halloween. Like the first installment, they are the second bird introduced in the first theme, Trick or Treat. Afterwards, they appear in all the following themes.

Sub Article: Ham'o'ween Short Movie

The Blues are trick or treating, and notice Bubbles, the Orange Bird in their candy basket. At first, they don't think much of him, but see pigs walking by. Afraid to be seen, they hide behind a tree only to realize that Bubbles is unintentionally kidnapped by the pigs, being lured by their candy. They get into the King's fortress by wearing one of the pig's masks, and stop King Pig from eating Bubbles by using controls on a conveyer belt. Bubbles is suddenly angered, as the King Pig ate a piece of candy he was aiming for, and he puffs up, revealing his ability. Afterwards, the Blues and Bubbles walk back from the castle, which is now crumbling apart.

Sub Article: Year of the Dragon Short Movie

The Blues have also traveled to China twice. While there the second time, The Blues, while hiding, watched the Pigs’ production of the Mighty Dragon puppet show and witnessed the Dragon’s attack. They first watch the play that the pigs have set up. The bird-puppets tend to eggs, but are suddenly frightened by the King Pig who comes to steal their eggs. However, they strike back using the Red-Koi stickers, and the King is frightened. However, the Corporal and the King are insulted and blow away the stickers. This causes the Blues to be angered, and they fling a Red Koi into the air, summoning the Mighty Dragon and ultimately destroying the showplace.

Main Article: Sakura Ninja

They also visited Japan, where they dressed as taiko drummers.

Main Article: Angry Birds Rio

The Blues, along with Red and Chuck, are tending to eggs but are captured by the smugglers and flown to Rio, where they are to be sold. Angered, they rustle in the cage so hard that it ends up exploding. The Blues escape, and assist in freeing the birds in the cages. Once they leave the den, they retreat to the jungle, getting rid of marmosets in their way. After the birds hijack the smuggler's plane, they use it to fly back home to Piggy Island.

Main Article: Angry Birds Space

In another adventure, The Blues and the Flock were whisked into Space via a wormhole, gained super powers and fought the Space King and the Space Pigs. During this time, despite their adventurous nature, they were often homesick and wanted to go back home. They gain costumes that resemble The Flash, and when flung they emit a flashing light of electricity. They still obtain the same power of splitting into three.

The Blues are having fun with Red, Chuck, Poppy, Willow and Stella.They pay an occasional visit for a limited time.

Relationships

Red

S101 RED SHOKED
Red is seen as a father-figure to the blues, however more strict than Bomb. He places them over the egg's safety, and trusts them to do so, exampled in the Toons episode Dopeys on a Rope. On Slingshot 101, Red is very concerned for them after being flung into a mountain, afraid that they will be defeated by the pigs. However, in the end they are seen playing with each other.

Red also thinks less of the Blues, and underestimates their ability to defend themselves. He does not realize how cunning and thoughtful they are and as a result end up doubting them. 

In the film version, Red actually protects the Blue Egg during the confrontation against Leonard. As Leonard was lost in the explosion, Red manage to survive as the Blue Egg that he carries is already hatched and to see the Blues which belongs to Greg Blue and Olive Blue as he returns these triplets back to them. 

Chuck

ABToonsS2EP12Screenshot21
Chuck and Jay, Jake, and Jim are considerably good friends. However, sometimes The Blues are annoyed by Chuck's nonsense, just like the other birds. The Blues are stubborn towards Chuck when he made them go through his obstacle course in the toons episode Full Metal Chuck. In the Toons episode The Bird Who Cried Pig, Chuck is welcomed by the Blues and they say, "hi" to him. (assumption because they don't speak in the toons episodes)

Bomb

Vlcsnap-2014-02-07-12h01m12s50
Bomb acts as a more tolerant father-figure to the blues, exampled in the episode Shrub It In where Bomb is playing with them. Bomb also is seen playing with them in the toons episode The Bird Who Cried Pig. They also happen to call Bomb "Uncle Bomb" in the Angry Birds Mini-Comics #1. It is also said on the Angry Birds Official Website that The Blues prefer Bomb over Red due to Bomb's more likable personality.

Matilda

Do As I Say! Matilda and Blues
The Blues see Matilda as a mother figure, as she constantly scolds them for doing wrong things, as exampled in the Toons episode Do As I Say! The Blues don't like it when Matilda bosses them around and are usually scolded for the things that they do. The Blues also are very aware of her temper and care for her, as exampled in the Toons episode Shrub It In where they don't want to tell her about her rose bush to hurt her feelings.

While the Blues dislike Matilda's cooking, they are aware of her sensitivity and try not to hurt her feelings, however they are unsuccessful.

Hal

HalandBlues

Hal is seen as a better father-figure to the Blues, as they choose to tag along with him than Red, who offers to follow along. Hal is willing to help them through many obstacles, like crossing a cliff, being shelter for rain, and being a boat to cross a river. It seems to be that the Blues stick to Hal more because his beak an extremely useful component of him.

Terence

CATCH OF THE DAY SOMETHING BIG....

It can be assumed Terence and The Blues are good friends. In their description on angrybirds.com, it is shown that the play pranks with him as some sort of prop, as it mentions they dressed up Chuck in a pig costume and called Terrence over to deal with him.

Bubbles

BlueBirdswithOrangebird

The Blue Birds with Orange bird

The Blues treat Bubbles like a younger sibling. When The Blues barely knew him and he got captured by the pigs, they went out of their way to rescue him. They also don't seem to get very upset when he eats most of their candy, meaning they are more tolerant if he wrongs them in any way. The Blues also think he is cute and coo over him at the end of the Ham'o'Ween Short Movie.

  • Red as Knight that can force all pigs to attack Red.
  • Red as Guardian that can lower the attack power of all pigs, which is the same as when it is use on Bomb as Cannoneer.
  • Chuck as Thunderbird that can lower the defense of all pigs, which is the same as when it is use on The Blues as Skulkers itself.
  • Matilda as Druid that can damage all pigs by applying Thorny Vines.
  • Matilda as Bard that can apply 15% chance effect of stun to all pigs, in which it can stun 1 or more random pigs other than just it's target.
  • Matilda as Priestess that can applies Angelic Touch effect so all damaged or killed pigs heals the attacker (birds).
  • Bomb as Capt'n that can immediately remove all helpful effects from all pigs.

So it is not a bad idea if you brought Skulkers with any of these birds with you when facing non-pirate pigs such as pigs with either Dodge or Ironclad effect.

Cons
Tricksy Trick's effect is not applied to Pirates.

Trivia

  • The Blues are the only birds who have no eyebrows, except in the early cinematic trailers but they can look angry.
  • Their eyelids appear to change color in different media. In the games, their eyelids are blue, but in several of the animated shorts, their eyelids are red.
  • They are possibly based upon the Mountain Bluebird.
  • The Blues first appeared in the original Angry Birds sketch in 2008, along with Red; possibly showing that they were the first 2 created Angry Birds.
  • In Angry Birds Toons the Blues have a Theme Song. This makes them (along with Willow and Stella) the only birds with a consistant theme song.
  • Game after game, the Blues' power never changed. This was until the release of Angry Birds Go! and Angry Birds Epic; however, this can be excused as it is not a slingshot-based game.
  • Interestingly, they also appear in every Angry Birds title. (This excludes spin-offs, however they also appear in Bad Piggies and can still split in 3)
  • The Blues are named "Jim, Jake, and Jon" in the Angry Birds Comic. This is most likely a typo.
  • Jay is the oldest and leader of his brothers, Jake is the middle child, and Jim is the youngest.
    • It is unknown how Jay became the leader of his brothers.
  • Red,The Blues,Shakira Bird,Chuck,Bomb and Matilda are the only special guests in Angry Birds POP! so far.
  • The Blues are the only birds who don't have eyebrows in Red's flock. This may be due to their young age, but that doesn't explain Bubbles's case.
  • In The Angry Birds Movie international trailer, The Blues' feathers are diffrent shades of blue (Jay's feathers are pale light grayish cerulean, Jake's feathers are pale light grayish sapphire blue, and Jim's feathers are brilliant turquoise), making them look like different hatchlings, possibly because Rovio wanted the Blues to be surprise characters to the fans. In a TV spot, they also have diffrent coloured eyes (Jay's eyes are blue, Jake's eyes are green, and Jim's eyes are brown).
  • For some reason, in the Angry Birds Movie, the Blues are younger than Bubbles and much smaller. But, in the game it shows that Bubbles is younger than the Blues.
  • For unknown reasons, whenever playing Angry Birds Seasons -or any other Angry Birds game- and the player splits the birds, the birds immediately turn into their corpses. This is seen as a glitch.
