Chuck, the Yellow Bird is a character in the Angry Birds series of games created by Rovio Entertainment. He was first introduced in 2009 with the original launch of the game. He is a Wild Canary.

Ability

Chuck has the ability to speed up when the screen is tapped. His game speed is much slower than his toons speed, as Chuck can move regular speed when time is slowed down almost completely. (see Chuck Time)

Chuck can destroy wood very well, can shatter some glass, but cannot destroy stone. This is likely because Rovio made 3 characters to only be able to easily destroy 1 material: Bomb (stone) Chuck (wood) Blues (Glass).

Appearance

Unlike the other birds, he is cone shaped, with a mop of black head feathers and red eyebrows. However, in the early cutscenes, he was the size of The Blues and had top feathers like Red.

Personal Data

  • Name: Chuck
  • Known Aliases: Yellow Bird, Maching Bird, Lazer Bird, Accelerator Bird, Speed Bird, Woodpecker, Han Solo Bird, Lando Bird (in Star Wars)
  • Group Affiliation: The Flock, The Space Flock, The Star Wars Flock
  • Best Friends: Red,
  • Voiced by: Antti LJ Pääkkönen, Josh Gad (The Angry Birds Movie)

Personality

Chuck has a very mixed personality, having different personalities in different media. In the comics, Chuck is enthusiastic and arrogant. He always
Chuck 1
wanted to be the best of the Flock, and is one of the most restless Birds in the Flock. In the opening scenes of Poached Eggs and Mighty Hoax, while The Flock examines the empty nest with question marks above their heads, Chuck exclaims a "#" sign after realizing that the Bad Piggies stole their eggs.

In the animated game trailer, Red, ChuckBlue Jay, and Bomb were the first to discover the Flock's eggs missing after severely attacking a butterfly for landing on their eggs.

In the TV Show, Chuck is clumsy, easily distracted, and a bit arrogant.

When not fighting Pigs, Chuck is a practical joker and uses his jokes to liven up the Flock (which sometimes offends Bomb). He is also known as Maching bird, a name that describes his penchant for jokes as well as his intense speed. He is described as enthusiastic and restless, although a little unconfident in the comics. He is the best friend and confidant of Red.

Chuck's description from the Angry Birds Official Website

Chuck likes to do everything at 100 miles-per-hour. Why do things slowly and properly when you can do them quickly and carelessly? So he does the dishes in half the time, but with only half the dishes unbroken! And sleep? That just gets in the way of doing stuff. Each night he falls asleep accidentally after tiring himself out too much. I’m not tired…I’m not tired…ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Ok, it’s time to speed things up! Chuck’s special power is a lightning-fast aerial assault that lets him dart toward the pigs at incredible speed! It’s pretty awesome to see him in action as he soars through the skies and smashes through the piggy defenses. Watch out you little green creatures – this incoming missile attack is super-accurate and crazy-fast!

Chuck has 100s of random thoughts a minute, making it hard for him to focus on a single thing. One moment he’s 100% committed to a group activity, and the next he’s off on his own adventure completely forgetting what he just agreed to! He gets bored really easily, so every day it’s a new hobby: surfing, painting, karate, origami and many more. Just pick one and stick with it, bird!

This is the ultimate bird poser who loves spending time admiring his feathers in the mirror. He’s such a show-off who likes to think the “duck face” internet meme was named after him! Chuck seems confident, but inside there’s also a frightened little birdie who’s scared of many things. Not exactly the image he wants of an extra tough and fearless action hero ready to take on the world!

Relationships

Red

Red is known to be Chuck's best friend in several different media, and this is shown in the toons episode Chuck Time where Chuck saves Red. This is also shown in the comic Angry Birds Christmas Comic, where Red saves Chuck.

Bomb

Chuck is often jealous of Bomb, and it is shown in the toons episode The Bird Who Cried Pig where Chuck tries to outstand Bomb by pretending to save the eggs.

History

YELLOW BIRD IN IN-GAME TRAILER

Early teaser image for Angry Birds, with the proto Yellow Bird on the bottom left.

In an episode of Angry Birds Toons, he once saved Red from a great height. He transformed somehow, making him have an ultra speed boost.

His original look, showing two top feathers and dark eyebrows, was similar to Red (and again exclaiming “#”) and was much smaller in size. This was later changed to his final look with a mop of black hair-like feathers on the top of his head.

In the course of the battles with the Pigs, he 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 Chuck. 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.

Strategy

  • Chuck is very strong on wood, making him a good bird to use on it. However, he can't destroy square blocks that well and can only shatter one square block.
  • He can't do much damage to Glass. He can only destroy one glass block at the same time.
  • Chuck's aiming angle is different from other birds. When Chuck is first launched from the slingshot, he flies at an angle like most birds. However, when his rush ability is activated, he will shoot straight at the target.

Lazer Bird is the classic Yellow Bird. But purple in color instead of yellow. In the game, Lazer Bird's abilities are similar to Chuck, with a slightly different control method. Instead of the player tapping the screen to increase speed, tapping now chooses a directional target. Lazer Bird will turn at a sharp angle and accelerate toward the chosen target, ignoring gravity until hitting something. However, he cannot follow a moving target. His goggles resemble those of Cyclops.

In the game, cutscenes, the loading screen, and for the plush toy, Lazer Bird has a cape. He originally only had a lightning bolt tail, but it was removed and he was wearing a cape in the second Red Planet update.



Han Solo Bird

General Info
Powers Shooting a laser thrice
First Level Appearance: Level 1-17
Gender: Male
Species: Canary (Dressed as Han Solo)
Locations: Tatooine, Death Star Hoth, Cloud City, Moon of Endor, Death Star 2
Strength: Normal
Size: Medium


Chuck is Han Solo in the Star Wars game. His ability is to shoot a red laser 3 times from his blaster based on Han Solo's. He is turned to carbonite in Cloud City. Name comes from the Angry Birds Online Shop.

In the Moon of Endor update, Princess Stella melted the carbonite Chuck was frozen into. Chuck was given an upgrade to make him shoot more powerful blue lasers.

According to the Angry Birds Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, his in-book's name is "Chuck "Ham" Solo". He is a junk food smuggler and accociates with criminals. However, Chuck is considered a hero who helps the bird rebels. He is very good at gambling and won the Mighty Falcon (his spaceship) in a game of cards with Lando Classarian. (see below)  He is confident and thinks he is cool, but others do not think the same. Some times he even has no idea whatsoever of what he is doing at all.

This cocky smuggler is very good with using a blaster and makes missing a target almost impossible. Solo only does what he wants, so he gets aggravated when Princess Stella will order him around. It is said that he is confused that he has a love interest on her. His home planet is Corellia and has the skill of dodging obstacles. Among him and Terebacca there is a firm friendship.

Being zapped by the EggSpark transformed more than just Chuck's body. He used to be ultra-competitive and desperately striving to prove his skills, but now he prefers to help others show their own powers.


Naturally this change has confused the other Autobirds - they're just waiting for him to suddenly snap and do something crazy! Wait for it... Aaaany minute now...


As one of the smallest, scout Autobirds, Bumblebee often finds himself in trouble. He tries his best, but for some reason that he can't figure out, his habit of acting without thinking often gets him into tricky situations.


But don't worry - his bravery, smarts and speed haven't let him down yet! Also, what's life without a little adventure? Amiright? Let's go!


Bumblebee's weapon is rapid firing but low damage, making it great at taking out wooden tower blocks, but poor at tougher enemies and stone blocks. Best to transform and use his extreme speed to outrun bigger threats. Zoom!


He's also great against flying and falling pigs, and at shooting down incoming missiles.

Freddie Mercury is a Yellow Bird who appears in the Angry Birds animation "Freddie For a Day", which commemorates Freddie Mercury's birthday on September 5th, 1946. He looks similar to Chuck but has a crown, mustache, smaller eyes, and wears a shirt. He is styled after the rocker Freddie Mercury.

In the "Freddie For a Day" video , Freddie Mercury is seen riding on a bicycle with Red and the Blues. The music played in the video is Queen's song, Bicycle Race.

While riding on the bicycle, he is stopped by the King Pig, who is unamused that Freddie Mercury's crown is more decorated than his. The King Pig's crown wilts in disappointment. The video ends with Freddie Mercury flashing his teeth and crown, and moving on.

Freddie Mercury also makes a cameo appearance in the advertisement for Angry Birds Friends that was on the original page for Angry Birds Star Wars Facebook.

Ayrton Senna (or Senna Bird) is a playable bird exclusive to Angry Birds Go! based on the late Brazilian three-times Formula One champion of the same name. He functions the same way as Chuck in Angry Birds Go!, and has the same power as him in that game. Senna can wear his iconic yellow-and-green helmet if you win 41 races while playing as him.

Trivia

  • Ayrton Senna is the sixth bird to be based on a real person, the first three being the Developer Birds (based on Peter Vesterbacka, Jaako Iisalo and Serdar Soganci), Freddie Mercury being the fourth and Slash being the fifth.
  • Senna is the second bird to have his character modeled on Chuck, the first being Freddie Mercury. They are also the only birds made in tribute to deceased people (Freddie died in 1991 and Senna died in 1994).
  • The reason why you have to win 41 races as Senna to get his helmet is because this is the same number of victories the real Ayrton Senna had during his Formula One career.

Appearances

Chuck has appeared in the following games:

Gameplay

He first appeared in the 16th level of the first episode, Poached Eggs and has appeared as a playable character in
ABT Chuck Poster
every version and episode of the game (except The Big Setup) released so far, though he is not necessarily in all levels. In the Fuji TV exclusive episode: Sakura Ninja, Chuck appears dressed as a samurai. This was the first time he has appeared in costume in any game and completely new game sprites were created for this episode.

To activate the Chuck's speed rush ability, a player must launch him into the air, then tap the screen or click the mouse to activate the speed boost. The most effective attacks with Chuck are to launch him upward and let him arc down onto a target, or to fling in a straight line horizontally at a target.

Chuck's rush ability allows him to pick up speed to cause the most possible damage to the Pigs and their fortresses. Much like many of the other birds, his strength usually varies depending on the block and angle that is struck. Chuck is most effective against wood obstacles, able to penetrate several walls easily due to his speed. However, he is weak against glass/ice despite it having a much weaker strength than wood.

Trivia

  • When he turns into a corpse, Chuck rolls like a ball, even though his body is a cone.
  • Hal makes the same pain noises when becoming a corpse as Chuck.
  • Chuck's top feathers appear like Red's feathers in some earlier cutscenes. This was later changed to his in-game black mop-top design.
    Chuck Compare

    A side by side comparison of Chuck's look.

  • In the early cutscenes before the Birdday update of Angry Birds, Chuck was the same size as the Blues,but was soon changed to his now bigger size.
  • In cutscenes, Chuck seems to always be the one to notice the Pigs running away with the eggs, except The Big Setup.
  • Chuck owns a music player, as shown in the Angry Birds Toons trailer.
  • In Chuck Time, when Chuck sees Red falling off a cliff, he perceives it as slow-motion. Chuck's perception of time becomes slower than everyone else when he puts on the headband, explaining why he is able to act more quickly than other birds.
  • Chuck has astraphobia, a great fear of thunder, shown in Thunder Chuck.
  • He is the "Peacock of The Flock",announced here https://www.angrybirds.com/
  • Chuck is scared of Terence.
  • Being that he is the fastest playable bird, along with a name like Chuck, his name is a possible reference to famous Action movie star, Chuck Norris.
  • In Inanimate Insanity Episode 4, he appears demonstrating the slingshot in the challenge.
  • Chuck does not know what a pig is in the movie.
  • One of his costumes resembles Pikachu from the Pokémon series.
  • As revealed in the Angry Birds 2 website, Chuck can run up to 100 mph, and sometimes faster.
