Ross is Leonard’s right hand pig. While he’s not the smartest pig of the bunch, he approaches his job with great enthusiasm. Whether serving as a piggy diplomat greeting the birds with warm hugs or attempting to operate contraptions like zip lines and escalators, Ross is usually doing it with a dumb smile on his face and a perky curl on his tail.
- In some images made by Rovio, it is revealed that Ross owns a house, a pig-shaped balloon, and a toy plane.
- Before the announment or leaking of The Angry Birds Movie, where it was revealed that Freckled Pig would be called "Ross", Rovio released an comment where they say that Ross(yet unnamed at the time) had an actual name, but it was hard to pronounce, so fans started nicknaming him Freckles.
- Ross is voiced by Tony Hale in The Angry Birds Movie, who also voices the Mime Bird and Cyrus in the film as well.
