Waddles is a fan-made character of Happy Tree Friends.

Character Bio

Waddles is a cute yet sadistic penguin with a black body, orange bill and feet, a white belly and cheeks, and three hairs on his head.

His archenemy is Spot the leopard seal. An episode with him appearing usually involves him trying to eat Waddles. Spot, like real leopard seals, likes eating penguins. However, Waddles usually foils his plots and kills him in a sadistic manner.

  • Waddles was originally the size of Cub. Later on, he became taller, but still shorter than Spot and most other tree friends.
  • Waddles is similar to the ants because both have been known to torture and kill their enemies, respectively Spot and Sniffles.
  • Along with the ants, Mr. Pickles, Flippy, and Ale, he is considered one of the most violent characters in the series.
  • So far, I Thaw That Coming, Chill Out, and Snow-Blinded are the only episodes where he appears with Spot without killing him.
  • He is one of the few characters to make a heroic sacrifice (Mission ImPenguinable).
  • His Survival Rate is 54.17%.
