    Hey guys, this keeps popping up in non-related threads so upon a brief convo with @Greg Nixon today, I was inspired to try my hand at this. This is an attempt of adding more fun information to the community about this game that we are all fond of. This is solely composed of 4 and 5-star birds. A lot of time and research was put into compiling this and some of it was based on the game creators’ affinity for sci-fi movies, pop culture icons, blockbuster action stars, DC comics characters, and rock bands. Most of the likenesses don’t stand out until each bird’s post level 60 evo, which are indicated with a “/” between them. Your constructive input is encouraged in regards to some of the missing/unknown birds (indicated by “??”) and or likenesses that may seem like a stretch (indicated by “?”). If anything, I can post pics/references supporting my suggestions that may help. I only ask that this remains something enriching to new and old players alike by keeping replies away from becoming debatable and negative. If needed, we can simply poll amongst the community to come to a consensus and update the thread accordingly with any corrections/additions.

    Scrooge is based on Scrooge from A Christmas Carol and one of his evolutions looks like Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    I dont see MJ in the peck pocketing evo at all...
    IMO, he's ore like a generic rapper pieced together from several (like an extension of the pre evo form).

    I don't think so either, a few of the others like the other Kowalski evo are though, can't recall who that one was however.

    I get why you see it that way but the facial hair, bullets & particular hat ruin it for me as specifically MJ
     
  17. It'SaBiRd

    It'SaBiRd Tiny Birdy

    I agree with the facial hair and hair but MJ has worn the bullet belt or a goldish version of it in the past. I could put it as a mixture of different musical icons including him?

    There are likely some others of Freddie, that may qualify. Beast is definitely Iron Maiden though, was called out as such in that event. Jimmy may even be a ref to the Village People, or a blend of both.
