Humphrey is a fan character who originated from Happy Insect Friends.

Character Bio

Humphrey is a green hummingbird with a reddish-pink tail and abdominal marking. Due to his tiny size, he tries to fit in with the world of the insects, to the point of wearing goggles that resemble fly eyes and fashioning two of his head feathers to look like antennae.

He is typically seen collecting nectar, which, like real hummingbirds, is fuel to his body. This would mean competition with other nectar-lovers such as butterflies and bees.

Almost all of the Insect Friends see him as a fellow bug, especially the Moth due to how similar they look to each other. So far, Centie is the only one who knows Humphrey's true identity. Because of his appearance, predators such as Loony and Shrikes would try to eat him. Only then does Humphrey (unsuccessfully) try to convince them he isn't a bug.

As of Insect-tral Roots, he has also become a regular character. In such cases, he would be mistaken as a bug by the larger characters. Starting in Growing on Me, his size can now change between episodes (similar to Queenie).

He has lately developed an interest in science. He specializes in shrink ray technology, which may explain how his size can change between episodes.
