Bilbo Baggins (Red)Edit
Bilbo Baggins is a little Hobbit bird, which is a type of bird that are smaller compared to other birds, and most commonly seen with curly hair. One day, thirteen Dwarf birds along with a wizard appeared at Bilbo's doorstep and took him on an adventure to reclaim the Lonely Mountain (which the Dwarves once owned) from a dragon named Smaug. Bilbo's ability is similar to Red Skywalker from Angry Birds Star Wars, Bilbo brandishes his sword, Sting, and slashes whatever he comes into contact with.
Gandalf The Grey (Bomb)Edit
Gandalf is a wizard who is quite close to the Hobbits. One day, the old wizard appears at Bilbo's doorstep and takes him with thirteen Dwarves on an adventure to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the Dragon. Gandalf holds a map of the mountain which unveils a secret entrance into the mountain that Smaug is unaware of. Gandalf's ability allows him to slam his staff downwards which creates a small explosion to damage structures, similar to Bomb's ability from the classic Angry Birds.
Thorin Oakenshield (Terence)Edit
Thorin is a Dwarf who's land was taken from him by a dragon by the name of Smaug. Him, along with 12 other dwarves, a wizard named Gandalf, and the Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins, will travel to the Misty Mountains to slay the dragon Smaug in order to reclaim their land. Thorin is smaller than Terence usually is, so his ability is not the same as Terence's usual ability. Thorin's ability is similar to Chuck's in Angry Birds Space, tapping the screen in a certain direction makes Thorin thrust an axe in the direction you tapped the screen while charging at a high speed, easily smashing through wood and ice and sometimes stone.
Balin is the elder brother of Dwalin, both of whom are of the thirteen Dwarves traveling to the Lonely Mountain with Bilbo and Gandalf. Balin's ability is quite unique; he raises his axe, then swiftly moves straightway downwards to smash anything that he touches.
Dori, Ori, and Nori (Terences)Edit
These three brothers are three other Dwarves who are traveling to the Lonely Mountian. Their ability is very similar to The Blues from the original Angry Birds. The player launches Dori and upon tapping the screen, Ori appears above Dori, and Nori appears below Dori. Dori will easily be able to smash through stone, while being slowed down by wood and ice, while Nori will easily break ice, with wood and stone slowing him down, and Ori being able to smash through wood, while being slowed by ice and stone.
Bombur is an obese Dwarf who is one of the Dwarves that accompanies Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins on their journey to the Lonely Mountain. His brother Bofur and cousin Bifur also were part of the company. Bombur is the largest of the thirteen Dwarves, he uses his weight to his advantage. His ability allows him to easily break structures and even stone, mimicking the original Terence's ability.
Fili and Kili (Small Terences) Edit
Legolas is an elf who saved the Dwarves and Bilbo from getting killed by spiders within Mirkwood, but Elves are not friends to Dwarves. He may have saved their lives, but he captured the Dwarves (although Bilbo uses the ring he found in a cave to turn invisible and escape capture) and brought them to his father, King Thranduil, who has them inprisoned. It is expected he'll only be playable in The Desolation of Smaug: Part I within the Mirkwood levels. His ability is similar to Han Solo's in Angry Birds Star Wars, Legolas shoots four arrows in the direction the screen is tapped. The arrows will bounce off of stone like Han Solo's lasers bounce off of metal.
Bard the BowmanEdit
Smaug is the main antagonist The Hobbit book and as well as the film trilogy. A large dragon who captured the Lonely Mountain from the Dwarves. For about two hundred years, he hoarded the mountain's treasures before 13 dwarves managed to drive him out of hiding, after which the dragon was slain by Bard the Bowman of Lake-Town. Smaug serves as a boss battle on at least three seperate occasions, appearing in three different episodes. He is a boss battle in the very first episode, The Prologue, The Desolation of Smaug: Part II, and The Battle of the Five Armies: Part I.
Gollum is a creature who was once a Hobbit. It all started one day, his best friend, Deagol, found a ring at the bottom of a lake. Deagol showed the ring to Smeagol (Gollum's original name when he was a Hobbit). Smeagol grew with greed, and wanted the ring for himself. He strangled Deagol to death and seized the ring as his own. Smeagol was outlasted by the other Hobbits, called a murderer. The Hobbit fled to the Misty Mountains with his ring at hand. There, he lived off of fish and Porcs and Goblins. This ring was so ordinary ring. It had a mysterious power, it allowed Smeagol to live for a long time, but it also had a power that was meant to make creatures obsess over it, which is exactly what Smeagol did. The ring took the life force out of Smeagol. He began to deform, no longer looking like a Hobbit, but looking gruesome. Eventually, he forgot the taste of bread, the sound of trees, the softness of the wind. He even forgot his own name. He was called Gollum by those who knew about him because of a horrible coughing noise he made that sounded like "Gollum". 500 years of living alone, one day a Hobbit named Bilbo stumbles into Gollum's cave where the two play a game of riddles. If a Bilbo won, he was shown the way out. If Gollum won, Bilbo would be eaten by Gollum. Bilbo managed to win by asking the riddle "What have I got in my pocket?" Which Gollum couldn't answer correctly. What Gollum didn't know, however, was that in Bilbo's pocket was the ring which he just so happened to find lying on the ground. When Gollum realizes his ring is missing, he pits two and two together and realizes the ring is in Bilbo's pocket. Bilbo runs for his life from the monster but then soon realizes that when he put on the ring, he becomes invisible. Bilbo uses this to hide from Gollum. Gollum spends the rest of his days searching for his long lost ring. He doesn't find it until the sequel, The Lord of the Rings. It is noteworthy he is one of the only birds to appear as an enemy instead of an ally.
Azog the Porc (King Pig as Azog the Orc)Edit
Azog appears as a major antagonist during the episodes An Unexpected Journey: Part I and An Unexpected Journey: Part II. He pursues Thorin and Company out of vengeance for being stabbed by Thorin in the left side of his body. In the original Hobbit story, Thorin slices off Azog's left arm, but due to the Angry Birds characters possessing no arms, the story has been changed. Azog appears a few times as a boss battle in the game, mostly in the two An Unexpected Journey parts.
The Great GoblinEdit
Many species are represented in the Middle Earth-themed Angry Birds games by different species of birds and pigs.
