Pierce is a fan character of Happy Tree Friends.

Character bio

Pierce is a green-and-black porcupine with a black skull shirt, black-dyed quills on his head and face piercings. He enjoys listening to Rock n' Roll music and going to concerts.

Pierce has a punk-like personality, a short temper, and is somewhat of a slob. He likes to poke people with his quills, fitting enough as some may call him a prick. He is best described as a rebel; he'll try to do what he wants no matter what other people say, even if it means resorting to drastic measures. He can be a jerk most of the time, though his bully-like tendencies decrease later on. 

Pierce may be a thief, as he stole a car in I've Gotta Bandit to You and a water gun in Your Biggest Fan. It was shown in Past Tensed that he became mean to pay back a bully who broke his toy.

  • He is similar to Duncan from Total Drama Island.
  • Originally a bully-type character, this aspect of his personality would later decrease to avoid competition with Jerky (while Jerky is a bigger jerk their personas were virtually the same). Instead more episodes would focus on his other aspects. 
  • He seems to have his own theme music (rock music is heard whenever he appears).
  • He usually doesn't seem to care about others' deaths or injuries. Sometimes, he laughs at them.
  • He secretly likes unicorns and rainbows.
  • He has a soft side towards small children (like Cub) and certain animals like puppies and kittens.
  • He does yoga, as shown in his smoochie.
  • He has been to juvie approximately 17 times.
  • His house is first shown in Pranks for the Memories. This is also the first episode where he survives.
  • He is the first victim of Snowie, Hawkeye, Bonny, TrixieFizzles, Chuckles, and Slushie, Pow Pow and Snooty.
  • He will appear in the Ka-Pow spin-off Bros to the Most.
  • Despite his rude and unpleasant nature, he can co-operate with other characters on occasion. An example is in A Clothes Call, where he worked with the others to find Lifty and Shifty (although it didn't work out as he later tried to bully Pranky).
  • Pierce can cry on occasion when things don't go his way, as seen in Strike! and Pierce Makes A Band.
  • He sometimes likes to photocopy his butt, as seen in the Specy Spooktacular episode "Office-sive".
  • As a regular goof, he sometimes appears with normal buck teeth instead of sharp buck teeth.
    • He now has normal buckteeth instead of pointed ones.
  • Most of his deaths involve being skinned or sliced.
  • Pierce shares some similarities to Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4. They both may be tough punks, but they secretly love cute things.
  • In fan version episodes, he takes a place of Disco Bear.
  • As of No Quill to Live, he is the third character to reach his 100th death, after Josh and Trippy.
  • According to the Tree Friend Comedy Montage, Pierce thinks that Dynamite Hack is heavy metal.
  • As of January 26th 2019, he now wears jeans with a pocket chain, has an extra piercing on his nose (later removed), and a redesigned skull on his shirt.
