Angry Birds Star Wars Character


Star Wars Characters are the characters seen in Angry Birds Star Wars. The birds are based on the Star Warscharacters from the Original Trilogy, the trilogy that includes A New HopeThe Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

-------------------------------------------------------

Luke Skywalker (Red Skywalker)

Red is Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars game. Originally, like in the previous games he did not have a power, but later gained his father's blue lightsaber. He uses a lightsaber in a spinning motion, similar to a shuriken to break blocks, as seen in a gameplay trailer. If Path of the Jedi is completed, then Luke will gain a green lightsaber, and clothing that resembles Luke's from Return of the Jedi. He seems to be more powerful than Red Bird was in Angry Birds. Name comes from the Angry Birds Online Shop.

Yoda does not resemble any of the preexisting birds. It seems to be a new bird created specifically to represent the old Jedi Master.

According to art director Toni Kysenius, Yoda was originally based on the Blue Birds, but was redesigned to look more like a wise owl. He is not playable yet, but in Path of the Jedi, he appears as some sort of background character to be the mentor for the Birds (Red, Blues, Chuck, and Obi-Wan).

Darth Vader (Lard Vader)

Darth Vader's role is played by an unknown pig or bird although, Rovio's stated they will reveal at the launch of Angry Birds Star Wars if Vader is a bird or a pig but it is still unknown. Vader is the leader of the Stormtrooper pigs, based on the Empire from the Star Wars universe. He can move bricks around with the Dark Side of the Force in a Boss Battle. Name comes from the Angry Birds Online Shop.

Stormtroopers (Pigtroopers)

The Stormtroopers are portrayed by Minion Pigs in the Star Wars game. They serve as the minions of their commander, Darth Vader.

Unlike previous versions of Pigs of Angry Birds, who are known to sit still during levels, some Pigtroopers are equipped with blasters and shoot lasers, similar to Han Solo's ability, which can disrupt the Birds' attacks. However, Luke's lightsaber and Obi-Wan's use of the Force can deflect the blasts and reach faraway objects or other Pigtroopers. Despite this improvement, the Pigtroopers are still unintelligent, as they will blindly shoot in a repeating pattern. If the player is skilled enough, he/she can turn the blasting Pigtrooper upside-down, allowing it to shoot its own fort and teammates, decreasing the necessary amount of Bird usage.

Tusken Raider Pig

The Sand People AKA Tusken Raiders from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope are represented by Pigs wearing the clothing worn by them. They aren't too much of a challenge to kill as the structures they usually appear on are most of the time weak. Overall, simply toppling down their structure is usually enough to kill them when they fall to their death.

Emperor Palpatine (Emperor Piglatine)

File:ABSWsocialmedia-1-.jpg

The King Pig takes the role of the Emperor. This is all that is known, currently. He is seen in a Google+ Hangout poster. He is also seen in a poster showing members of the Empire.

He appears to wear the King Pig's crown from the cartoons, rather than the crown from the actual preceeding games. Name comes from Pigtroopers description in Angry Birds Online Shop.


-------------------------------------------------------

Grand Moff Tarkin


Grand Moff Tarkin is the Moustache Pig in the game. He appears in some of the levels in the Death Star episode and some Bonus Levels. This pig seems to have bushier eyebrows than the Original
Moustache Pig.

-------------------------------------------------------

Minor Characters

Dr. Evazan

Dr. Evazan, who originally appeared in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope alongside Ponda Baba. Evazan appears in the Cinematic Trailer as a pig in the cantina who doesn't seem to like Red (Most likely because Red accidently shoved Ponda into a pickle jar), same with Ponda.

Ponda Baba

File:Imagepd.jpg

Ponda Baba, as well as his friend Dr. Evazan, both originally appeared in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. In the Cinematic Trailer, Ponda and Evazan appear as pigs and don't seem to like Red (Most likely because Red accidently shoved Ponda into a pickle jar, causing a pickle to be in Ponda's mouth.) In the original movie, Ponda's arm is chopped off by Obi-Wan. In the trailer, the only thing that recieved damage from Obi-Wan's Lightsaber was the pickle in Ponda's mouth, possibly censorship, or the fact that they have no arms, or both. He appeared in a toy set along with Greedo.

Greedo

File:Chuck shoot Greedo.png

Greedo is a bounty hunter. He only apeared in a cutscene, spying on Chuck Solo, and is then seen being shot by him, like in the movie. Because he died of this in the movie, he may not appear again. He has appeared in a toy set.

Jawas

File:Jawas.png

Jawas are birds who love to do nothing but scavenging. They do not resemble any of the pre-existing birds, much like Yoda. They only serve as supporting characters in the storyline. In the comic we can see a Jawa bird holding the Eggs in a basket. They have been seen in the Cinematic Trailer.

The Imperial Guards

The guards of the Emperor can be seen in an Angry Birds Star Wars image guarding Piglatine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Welcome to our complete Angry Birds Star Wars characters guide and reference. Star Wars is a very unique addition to the Angry Birds franchise, as it includes a mix of our classic characters with the copyrighted characters from George Lucas’ double-trilogy. Another unique aspect of this app is the inclusion of a character page, which you can see above. To access this page within your app, click on the “bird face” icon on the main home screen (where the play icon appears). Use our numbered image above and our listing below to figure out which icons you are missing, or if you are simply interested in learning more about these characters’ abilities within the app.

Disclaimer: The above image is taken from iPad, which is the comprehensive list. Depending on your platform, your character page may appear different. (For example, if your platform does not include the Mighty Millennium Falcon, it will not include those icons.)

To the best of our knowledge, we have noted when certain icons are NOT available on all platforms — typically Mac and PC. In these cases, please adjust the location of icons logically.

1. Red Bird Unlocked in Tatooine 1–1
In this app, the Red Bird assumes the character of Luke Skywalker, the protagonist of the original Star Wars trilogy, native son of Tatooine, and Jedi-to-be. To begin with, Luke has no special ability. However, more will be said about Luke in #5.

2. Pig, Type I Unlocked in Tatooine 1–1
Our first encounter shows our pudgy green foes as Sand People, aka Tusken Raiders. Sand People are natives of Tatooine, though often hostile toward settlers.

3. Black Bird Unlocked in Tatooine 1–5
The formerly-explosive Black Bird now assumes the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Master and mentor to Luke Skywalker and his father Anakin. Obi-Wan uses the Force to throw nearby blocks. Note that use of the Force will be in the direction of where the player taps/clicks the screen. More will be said about Obi-Wan in #16.

4. Pig, Type II Unlocked in Tatooine 1–6
As more heroes are introduced, so are the villains. Now the pigs appear as Storm Troopers, the soldiers of the Galactic Empire and minions of the antagonists.

5. Red Bird, Upgrade I Unlocked in Tatooine 1–9
As Luke continues in his training to become a Jedi, he obtains a blue lightsaber. Luke now has a triggerable ability: Tap the screen and Luke will spin the lightsaber, causing damage to nearby items. It may also be used to redirect laser beams. More will be said about the lightsaber in #21.

6. Yellow Bird Unlocked in Tatooine 1–17
Our formerly-speedy Yellow Bird now appears as Han Solo, a member of the Rebel Alliance with Luke and Obi-Wan. Han’s ability is to shoot three quick blasts from his laser gun. Note that, like Obi-Wan, Han fires his gun in the direction of where the user taps/clicks the screen.

7. Mighty Falcon Unlocked in Tatooine 1–25
The Millennium Falcon is the starship owned by Han Solo, most famous for making the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs. In the app, it replaces our beloved Mighty Eagle, though behaves quite differently. The Mighty Falcon travels in a circular motion, from 9 o’clock to 3 o’clock, either clockwise or counter, firing nine blasts from its laser as it traverses the semi-circle. The first blast is also perfectly horizontal.

8. Pig, Type III Unlocked in Tatooine 1–40
More pigs appear as TIE Fighters, the primary starship used by Galatic Empire. When popped, each wing will remain as debris until exploding upon forceful contact with another object.

9. Tatooine Unlocked by defeating all levels of Tatooine
As said above, Tatooine is the home planet of Luke Skywalker and the namesake of the first episode in Angry Birds Star Wars.

10. Blue Bird Unlocked in Death Star 2–1
Our splitting friend returns, here as a Rebel pilot. These pilots serve for the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire. The Rebel pilots have the same ability as always, splitting into three pilots upon user tap.

11. Pig, Type IV Unlocked in Death Star 2–3
Starting in the second episode, we are introduced to Death Star troopers. These individuals are part of a specialized force to protect the (first) Death Star. Read more about the Death Star in #18.

12. Big Brother Bird Unlocked in Death Star 2–12
Our bulky friend appears as Chewbacca. Chewie is a Wookie, co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon, and friend of Han Solo. Chewie has no special ability besides his impressive size and momentum, which can cause significant destruction in its own. (Unlocked in Death Star 2–11)

13. Pig, Type V Unlocked in Death Star 2–13
Pigs now appear as Imperial officers. In terms of military ranks, an Imperial officer would have command over a typical Imperial Trooper.

14. Moustache Pig Unlocked in Death Star 2–13
The stronger, bulkier pig assumes to roll of a Death Star Officer. Individuals promoted to this rank are part of an elite class within the Imperial military.

15. Pig Boss, Type I Unlocked in Death Star 2–25
While not necessarily the app-ification of the King Pig, this boss pig assumes the role of Sith Lord Darth Vader. We intentionally avoid a plethora of spoilers here (and strongly request that you avoid this as well). Instead say that Vader is a powerful Jedi and right-hand-man to Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire. Vader has the ability hold blocks using the dark side of the Force. These blocks will have an aura about them, until Vader’s concentration is broken by withstanding damage and the blocks are released.

16. Black Bird, Upgrade I Unlocked in Death Star 2–26
After battling with Vader, Obi-Wan becomes even more one with the Force. As such, Obi-Wan’s use of the Force as an attack becomes more powerful and affects a larger radius.

17. Pig Boss, Type II Unlocked in Death Star 2–40
The boss is a variation of a TIE Fighter. At this time, they appear to have no special ability besides being slightly stronger than a normal TIE fighter.

18. Death Star Unlocked by defeating all levels of Death Star
The (first) Death Star is both a battle station and a weapon used by the Galactic Empire, capable of destroying entire planets. It is also the namesake of the second episode of the app.

19. Pig, Type A Unlocked in Path of the Jedi J–1
These pigs appear as Dagobah villain. These imitate real pigs, which Luke battles during his training to become a Jedi Master. (Not available for Mac.)

20. Yoda Unlocked in Path of the Jedi J–1
Yoda is Jedi Grand Master, likely the most powerful, most wise, and most “one with the Force” among all Jedi in history. He agrees to train Luke on the planet of Dagobah. (Not available for Mac.)

21. Red Bird, Upgrade II Unlocked by defeating all levels of Path of the Jedi
Upon completing his training with Yoda, Luke gains a green lightsaber. This lightsaber is stronger than the blue one and has a larger attack radius. At this time, we do not know whether this upgrade will have additional means of obtainment. (Not available for Mac.)

22. Dagobah Unlocked by defeating all levels of Path of the Jedi
Dagobah an otherwise-uninhabited planet where Yoda lives in exile. Luke travels to Dagobah to be trained by Yoda, thus it is the setting for this non-sequential episode. (Not available for Mac.)

23. White Bird Unlocked by opening an applicable Bonus level
We believe that the White Bird now assumes the role of C–3PO, a humanoid protocol droid who has served the Skywalker family for many years. His ability is self-destruction where, upon tap, he will break into several pieces of jagged metal. These pieces can cause damage to blocks and enemies, and are exceptionally useful to detonate TNT.

24. Egg Unlocked by opening an applicable Bonus level
The Angry Birds’ precious Egg continues to make appearances as a playable character, assuming the role of R2-D2. R2 is an astromech droid and counterpart of C-3PO. His ability is use of his shock arm, which delivers a jolt of electricity to nearby villains.

30. Unlocked by obtaining “Mighty Falcon” medals on all levels of Path of the Jedi. (Not available for Mac or PC.)

31. Pink Bird Unlocked in Hoth 3-3
On the ice planet of Hoth, we are introduced to the Pink Bird playing the role of Princess Leia. We won’t get into the spoilers here, but Leia is the typical damsel in distress, with Luke, Han, and the crew coming to her rescue. She sports a “Gravitational Field Disruptor” (GFD for short), which pulls targeted objects towards her like a tractor beam.

32. Pig, Type VI Unlocked in Hoth 3-2
This pig appears to be Maximilian Veers, a Major General in the Empire’s Imperial Army and leader in the Hoth attack.

33. Pig, Type VII Unlocked in Hoth 3-6
These pigs are AT-AT Walker Commanders. (To learn more about AT-ATs, see below.)

34. Pig, Type VIII Unlocked in Hoth 3-1
More pigs! These ones are Snowtroopers.

35. Pig, Type IX Unlocked in Hoth 3-2
These floating pigs (which sort of look like squids, or sentinels from The Matrix) are Imperial Probe Droids.

36. All Terrain Armored Transport Unlocked in Hoth 3-6
More commonly known as “AT-ATs” or “Imperial Walkers”, these giant vehicles were used by the Empire are extremely difficult to defeat. In the app, some shoot lasers and some do not. Look for weak spots to bring them crashing to the ground.
