Matilda, the White Bird is a character that is in the Angry Birds series of games created by Rovio Entertainment. First introduced in 2009, the character is one of the original five birds in the Flock. She is the only bird with two corpses.

She first appeared in level 2-14 of the first episode, Poached Eggs and has appeared as a playable character in every version and episode of the game released so far, though she is not necessarily in all levels. In the Fuji TV exclusive episode: Sakura Ninja, White Bird appears dressed as a geisha. This was the first time she has appeared in costume in any game and completely new game sprites were created for this episode.


Despite being one of the largest of the birds, White Bird is weak in physical strength, The egg bombs she deploys have decent power but suffer from a short blast radius and tend to be overestimated in their effect on the structure. Once the egg is dropped, the corpse then flies up and explodes to the right. Additional damage can be done to the fortresses if the egg is dropped in such a way that it launches the corpse into the structure.


Personal Data

  • Name: Matilda
  • Known Aliases: White Bird
  • Group Affiliation: The Flock


Matilda is as responsible as Red but not as stressed as him. She has the essense of a mother. Matilda is very caring, especially towards the Blue Birds as the young ones always got into trouble. Matilda is a peaceful bird who hates to fight the pigs. All she wants is just a peace between birds and pigs.

While she does appear to lay eggs, the eggs explode. She has been seen in the presence of another female White Bird during the St. Valentine's Day holiday but her full connection with this bird is unknown.


Little is known about White Bird’s history before the events of the first Angry Birds
Matilda bird
game or how she acquired the ability or skills to drop explosive eggs.

In the course of the battles with the Pigs, she has traveled to many different locations and environments, including the desert, underground caves and beaches. The Pigs never rest in their quest to steal eggs and the Flock often has to retrieve their eggs on holidays and special occasions. In one instance, the Pigs captured the entire Flock, including White Bird. It was only for the actions of Terence, the Big Brother Bird that the Flock was freed.

At an indeterminate time later, the Flock was captured as rare birds and taken to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where they fought with Blu and Jewel and their friends against Nigel the cockatoo and Mauro and his marmosets. Bomb and Matilda did not appear originally in Rio, but arrived shortly after the others, so it is possible they were not captured originally and made their way to Rio to find Red, Chuck, and The Blues, or were captured at later times.

In addition to Rio, Matilda has also traveled to China twice and Japan, where she wore a geisha costume.

In another adventure, many of the Flock were whisked into Space via a wormhole, gained super powers and fought the Space King and the Space Pigs. Matilda appears to be left behind.

Bomb and Matilda definately have some sort of relationship. Bomb kisses Matilda in the Toons episode Clash of Corns and Matilda thinks about Bomb 4% of the time.



White Bird has appeared in the following games:

Female White Bird

Female White Bird
Female White Bird
Abilities None
First Appearance None
Gender Female
Species Chicken
Locations Hogs and Kisses
Strength Unknown
Size Large
The Female White Bird is a bird only seen in Angry Birds Seasons. She is a female bird like the White Bird. She only serves as a background character and only appears on wallpapers in Hogs and Kisses, and her existence has led to many beliefs that the basic White Bird is male. She has a naive, maybe nervous expression.

As the Female Red Bird is approximately the same size as the Red Bird, one image implies that the Female White Bird is significantly smaller than both the White Bird as well as the Female Red Bird. She may be the same bird with the White Bird (Matilda), but only with makeup, a bow, and lipstick.


  • It seems illogical for Rovio to create a Female White Bird as the normal White Bird is a female as well.
  • It also may be speculated that at the time, Rovio didn't give each bird one specific gender until following Hogs and Kisses, which was the Female White Bird's first and only appearence in the series.
  • Ironically, Female White Bird's design resembles Matilda's current design used since Toons.


C-3PO Bird

C3po front
General Info
Powers Splitting into 5
First Level Appearance: Level S-1
Gender: Masculine Programming
Species: Protocol Droid
Locations: Bonus
Strength: Weak
Size: Large

C-3PO resembles Matilda. His ability is to explode, splitting into 5 debris pieces: head, beak, torso, bottom, and tail; and float around, hitting Blocks and pigs.

According to the Angry Birds Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, C-3PYOLK is C-3PO's official name. Unlike the rest, C-3PYOLK never gets angry. He is specially programmed to keep peaceful and like Matilda loves plants and enjoys gardening. He speaks many languages and all of them politely. He easily gets scared and likes staying shiny and having his nuts and bolts shut tight. He is a protocol droid and has a translating skill. His ally is R2-D2. While escaping in the Escape Pod from the Pork Side, R2-D2 makes the journey less scary for C-3PYOLK.

Qui-Gon Jinn, also known as Quail-Gon Jinn in several Angry Birds Star Wars Books, is the master of Obi-Wan Kenobi and he has the ability to use a green lightsaber to destroy objects and pigs. He is defeated and killed by Darth Maul on Battle of Naboo. Anakin Skywalker Jedi Padawan has the same exact ability. This is the second male role Matilda plays, the first is C3-PYOLK.

Personality and Behavior

Qui-Gon is a bold bird who prefers to do things his own way. He is never happy to go along with others, everyone has trouble telling him what to do. This Jedi Bird often takes on dangerous missions others would not do. Jinn is quite good at feeling the force as he was the one who saw that the force was strong with Redkin Skywalker / Anakin Skywalker. However, he did not know that Redkin will be an evil Sith in the end.

The evil Count Dodo (or Dooku) was Quail-Gon's teacher before he went to the Pork Side. Although he is very experienced, he was slayed by Darth Maul. He was shocked, as the Jedi thought that the Sith was extinct. Although usually grumpy, he shows patience towards Obi-Wan, who is his student. Qui-Gon Jinn appears as an enemy in two levels of Angry Birds Star Wars II. The first is level 20 of Escape to Tatooine. He appears from the spaceship with his green lightsaber once all other birds have been destroyed. Even though he falls off the ship after being defeated, the following cutscene he still appears in the ship. He also appears in level 20 of Battle of Naboo along with Obi-Wan. He will slash any blocks that get near him with his green lightsaber. Once he is defeated, he is considered dead in the game's canon.

Matilda Epic Avatar


A strong healer who also packs quite a punch!


Matilda 1 (Transparent)
Intitial class

Location: Matilda's Garden



Deals 100% damage. All birds are healed by 20% of the dealt damage.



If any bird takes damage, all birds are healed by 15% of the taken damage. Lasts 3 turns.

Heals all birds every attack. The healing shield works as the defense shield (same as reducing 15% damage from enemies) but also heals others.

The healing shield doesn't heal too much, around 2-4 health for normal attacks and 40-60 health for big attacks.

Matilda 2 (Transparent)
Snoutling1 200

Location: Limestone Lagoon



Deals 35% damage. Target also takes 100% damage per turn for the next 3 turns.



Heals target by 22% of Matilda's HP and all other birds by 10%.

Heals birds directly. One of the strongest poison ability in the entire game (335% in total). Attack and healing are both high.

The target bird gets full healing while the other birds get half the healing, so this won't be of much use when all allies are in need of equal or high healing.

Power Star2Star2Star2Star2Star2 Boost Star2Star2Star1Star0Star0


Matilda 3 (Transparent)
Snoutling1 250

Location: Star Reef



Deals 125% damage. Forces all enemies to attack the bird with most health for 3 turns.



Removes all harmful effects from target bird. Target is healed by 30%.

Matilda can get people to attack target with most through every attack and her healing is also increased.

Keep in mind that this forces all pigs to attack bird with highest health so if you're fighting chronicle cave, this is not recommended. But, since pirates will be immune to this, it won't be bad to take princess to pirate pig battles.

  • The White Bird's physical appearance seems to be based on an egg shape, due to the egg it encases inside her body.
  • White Birds and (technically) Orange Bird are the only birds to have two different corpses.
  • White Bird is the second largest playable bird in the game, next to Big Red Bird.
  • White Birds are also the only birds to have projectiles.
  • Birds and corpses are impervious to eggs. If the player drops an egg on a corpse or a bird waiting their turn on the slingshot, the egg will bounce off.
  • The White Bird is possibly based upon the Snow Bunting or a Chicken.
  • Originally, the White Bird had a nervous expression. However, she was redesigned in later versions to appear angrier. She still keeps this original appearance in mobile versions of the original game and Seasons.
  • The White Bird, as well as the Green Bird, Orange Bird, and some pigs are the only Plush Toys with openable beaks.
  • In the Summer Pignic Animated Short when the White Bird is on the slingshot, the Boomerang Bird accidentally trips and knocks over the slingshot causing him to fling in a different direction. But strangely when she reaches the ground, instead of releasing his explosive egg like she does in every other game she stars in, she explodes right on the spot thus, leaving a small but noticeable crater.
  • In the Mighty Eagle poster, the White Bird is a chicken. However in her case, she drops explosive eggs rather than laying natural eggs.
  • Out of the five original members of the Flock, White Bird is featured the least often, possible due to her being the last of them to be featured. Later episodes would make the White Bird very common, on par with the Yellow Bird.
  • Originally, one of her cheeks became purple when she became a corpse (to look like a black eye). However, it was redesigned to look normal yellow.
  • The White Bird, the Boomerang Bird, and the Pink Bird are the birds that don't have a role in Angry Birds Space.
  • White Bird can make Boomerang Bird's launch noises in Angry Birds Facebook.
  • She appears to become more feminine in Angry Birds Toons, as she now has visible eyelashes and pink cheeks.
  • It's revealed that Matilda can cause thunderstorms when she's really enraged. That could only be seen in some Angry Birds Toons episodes, like Cordon Bleugh!, Green Pig Soup, Bird Flu, Epic Sax-Off, and her character video in Angry Birds 2. She nearly caused it in Operation Opera
  • Matilda enjoys painting.
  • According to the Angry Birds Magazine #2, Matilda wonders if Bomb likes her 4% of the time.
  • Matilda, along with Hal and Stella, are the only three Birds without a Space counterpart, and the only bird without a Transformers counterpart, possibly since Rovio cannot find her a good Transformers character to play in the latter game.
  • Matilda is the first female bird to simply have black eyes, followed by Silver from Angry Birds 2, as five out of the six birds in Angry Birds Stella are female birds with actual eye colors (light blue, green, brown, orange, and yellow).
  • Matilda's gender were decided late as she was originally made as a male and it can be identified by here masculine grunting, It was later decided for Matilda to be a female as on the contradictory fact that she can lay eggs.
  • Matilda can play the saxophone, as seen in the Toons tv episode Epic Sax-Off. This makes her the 6th bird known to play an instrument, the others being Hal, Willow, Poppy, Dahlia and Luca, in that order.
