Red is the main character in the Angry Birds series of games created by Rovio Entertainment. He was introduced in 2009 as the icon of the original game and a core member of the original flock, as well as the leader. Red is usually the first bird introduced in the Angry Birds games, though there have been times where other characters are in his place. (especially in spinoffs) After his first appearance in Poached Eggs, he has become a prominent character for the series.
Red's Description in Angry Birds Birdsonality (modified):
Red's a natural leader: strong willed, outspoken, and decisive. Knowledgable and self-confident, he can intimidate other people who may mistake his confidence for aarogance.
Red is shown to be a very grumpy, short tempered bird. He is short to anger, often getting angry at others when they do not coordinate with him. This causes a seperation between him and other birds, even being isolated from all the other birds as shown in the Angry Birds Movie. At this stage, he was deep down very lonely but refused to associate with the other birds.
However, once the eggs are stolen, Red is raised up as the leader by the other birds, who had previously refused to believe him. Here, he proves his leadership qualities in his strong desire and passion to save the eggs.
Red is the leader of the flock, which mainly includes The Blues, Chuck, Bomb, Matilda, and Terence. (along with Hal, Bubbles, Stella and Silver, who aren't as involved but still are part of the flock) While he doesn't have any abilities as the other birds do, he does have strong leadership skills that help in battle.
Red is a very loyal bird, and confides in his flock very much including Chuck and Bomb, his best friends/confidants. He is very strong willed and dedicated, allowing nothing to distract him from protecting the eggs.
- Two versions of Red wearing aviation-related head gear were created for the Angry Birds Asian Challenge completion.
- 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 eye glasses.
- Red is the 7th bird known to play an instrument. He is seen in the Angry Birds Pop map playing a guitar and playing an accordion in Last Tree Standing. The other birds known to play an instrument are Hal, Willow, Poppy, Dahlia, Luca , Bomb and Matilda, in that order.
- Red and Silver are the only birds to be named after a color.
