    Red is the main protagonist of 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.

Background

Personality

Red's Description in Angry Birds Birdsonality (modified):

Red's a natural leader: strong-willed, outspoken, and decisive. Knowledgeable and self-confident, he can intimidate other people who may mistake his confidence for arrogance.

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 separation 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 BluesChuckBombMatilda, and Terence. (along with HalBubblesStella 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.

Red made his first debut in the original Angry Birds game as the main character and icon. He is first introduced in Theme 1-1 as the very first bird to the players. From then on, the following levels are mostly based off of teaching the player how to play the game/use Red, and from then on he appears often as a playable character.

After his first appearance in Poached Eggs, Red appears in all of the themes excluding The Big Setup, which was entirely based off of Hal and Terence. He also appears in all of the cutscenes for the game.

Ever since the game first exploded and became very popular, Red has become a very noticeable and iconic character.

Gameplay

Despite being the main character, Red, for the most part, does not have any actual abilities. When the screen is tapped Red will only emit his "battle cry", and nothing else. While he is useful in the first couple of levels, as the player unlocks more characters he/she will realize that Red is not very strong nor needed in some situations. 

Red can only damage 1 or 2 blocks of glass, around 1 solid block of wood, and will not affect stone for the most part. (the player will actually have to shoot 4-5 red birds to destroy a single block of stone) He can effectively pop pigs, but that is a feature that all the birds have. (excluding Stella, who still can pop pigs, but not as effectively)

In the Red's Mighty Feathers theme, Red was given an ability similar to Lazer Bird, which is to fly off to wherever the player taps. This ability makes Red much more useful as he can reach any location on the level map, which is something that none of the birds can do at will. He is also slightly stronger, mostly due to his increased speed when his ability is activated.

This ability is exclusive to the levels in the theme and the Golden Eggs associated with the theme, but the game once offered an in-app purchase to active Red's ability permanently for all levels, where the profits contributed to the RED organization.
