Who do Billy the Blitz & Annie represent in pop culture?

    Just out of boredom I pondered about Billy and Annie's reference and design. All the other main 5 stars seem to be based on 80s action movies and their stars but not sure about these two. There was another thread on other birds but can't find it atm. Just for kicks, I went through trying to guess the other main five stars excluding set or event birds.

    Claude = JCVD, pre evo unknown, one evo might be based on Universal Soldier, not sure on the other with the goggles
    Dutch = Schwarzenegger, pre-evo from Pumping Iron, evos are Conan and Predator
    Murphy = mainly Robocop before and after based on the name, other evo and pre evo, different forms of law enforcement uniforms
    Steve = Steven Seagal
    Billy = ???
    Annie = ????

    Dutch is Arnold Schwarzenegger character in 1987 Predator, Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer.
    Murphy is officer Murphy from Robocop.
    Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal references are obvious.
    Doris is Kill Bill's main character
    Darlene is Deadpool?
    Ricky Redtzky is Wayne Gretzky
    Capt Freedom is Hulk Hogan
    Eddie is Iron Maiden mascot
    Kim Fli Hy is Kim Jong Il, the late dictator of North Korea.

    I don't think its Billy Idol. Cyril could be a rocker.

    only doing the main 5 stars (shown in the hatching hut) Epic but thanks, i typed the wrong movie for Dutch.. Also some of the designs is what I'm interesting in figuring out. Like Steve's first evo i know is Seagal's aikido background which was also featured in one of his movies and the other is that scarf he started wearing in later years.

    Does anyone know which football player Brett the QB is based off of?

    Also does anyone know what El Gigante/El Jefe is based off of too?

    QB is an amalgamation of NFL stereotypes...

    El Hefty's "Creepy Hug" evo reminds me a bit of Big Daddy from BioShock.

    Dutch in soft-launch was called "Arnie" which was a give-away to what the bird was referencing.
    Probably had to rename for obvious reasons.

    Fringy was based off of Miffy (a kids cartoon) before being renamed to Copyright InFRINGEment

    Guys again, only was asking about the main 5 star birds, not rockers, or event birds

    Why hmmm? Everything fits - there's a Heart and so Annie :D Can't think of anything better to be honest and I am BIG fan of them - so it was first thought and choice that came to my mind (probably wrong, anyway lol, on the other hand guys from Rovio may certainly like classic rock and heavy metal bands -> vide Iron Maiden)...

    Cheers,

    Not a huge music fan but what about the part with Annie burning down a building causing her to have a parole officer. Is that original or a reference to something?

    Annie may be Kate Bosworth, a.k.a. Catherine Ann Bosworth. An actress with heterochromia causing one eye to be blue and the other hazel.
