The Flock (Red, Blues, Chuck, Bomb and Matilda) are major characters from Angry Birds. They are a group of 5 (or 7 if you count the Blues as 3) that made their initial debut in Angry Birds Classic and became popular and re-appeared in more installments of the series.

They also appeared in Angry Birds Toons, Rovio's first show, where they are likable. But as of Season 3, they have been flanderized.

Why They're Angry Now

NOTE: This page only refers to The Flock as depicted in Season 3 of Angry Birds Toons, as the original characters are likable.

  1. First and foremost, they all have suffered a horrible case of flanderization, each in their own way;
    1. Red became an overprotective Gary Stu bully that likes beating the innocent pigs for fun. He's also racist towards the latter and is a jerk to them for no real reason.
    2. Chuck became an annoying idiotic jerk who cares more about looking cool rather than protecting the birds' eggs.
    3. Bomb became a boring loon who has no personality and also eats ice cream for legimately no reason whatsoever.
    4. The Blues became annoying troublemaking brats that like to beat up the pigs for fun, similar to Red. That also makes them similar to their Bad Piggies incarnation.
    5. Matilda became an OCD overprotective Neat Freak that just wants everything to go her way, making her spoiled as well.
  2. They constantly even bully themselves for no reason, for example in the episode "Photochucked" Chuck acts like a jerk to Matilda and also photobombed all her pictures. He even never got any comeuppance whatsoever, making him a Karma Houdini. Adding insult to injury, that also made Chuck become poorly written.
  3. Most of the birds don't get that much screen time, with Chuck always stealing the show and hogging the spotlight.
  4. There are a couple of moments where the birds can be Butt-Monkeys. For example, in "Bad Hair Day", Chuck randomly becomes an elder and the Blues make fun of him which is just straight-up mean-spirited.
  5. While they look good in the show, there have been instances where the Birds had ugly designs, such as Chuck takes in "Bad Hair Day" as well as Red, Matilda and The Blues in "Golditrotters".
  6. They are one of the reasons for Angry Birds Toons going downhill in Season 3.
  7. Their singing (as shown in "Didgeridork") is annoying, as a matter of fact, it can come to the point where you'll want to rip off your ears rather than listen to it another second. It also dosen't help that they do it multiple times throughout the episode.
  8. There are some moments where they can be destructive as well, in the episode "Happy Hippy" Red starts destroying Matilda's flowers just because he's angry, and also, he even starts drooling from his mouth which makes it look like he's gone crazy (not unlike Girlfriend from Fera Animations) and in the episode "Mind the Horse", Chuck and Bomb start destroying Pig City while they are chasing the Pigs. True, they had reasons to do this, but still.
  9. They are also prone to overreacting, as shown in one scene in "Spaced Out" where Chuck screams when he sees a firefly and another time, he screams after seeing fire in the sky. Also, when those happened, spikes started sticking out of his body, which looks like he's a porcupine.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. They were far more tolerable in the first and second season as well as in other Angry Birds media.
  2. They have some funny moments.
  3. Their voice is still good.
  4. At least Bubbles and Terence (as well as absent characters like Hal, Silver and Stella) were not flanderized, so they're still likable.
  5. There are times where they get their comeuppance, like when Chuck and Bomb were arrested in "Mind the Horse" for destruction all over Pig City.
    • While on topic, the entirety of Photochucked could be considered Matilda's comeuppance for her behaviour in "Eating Out".
