After defeating Bowser once again, Allay is saved. In the "shoot 'em up" levels, Cuddles rides TwinBee.

In Happy Tree Friends Adventures Game Boy, Cuddles reprises his role as one of the protagonists. Cuddles and his friends have to go through various environments to reach Bowser and rescue Allay.Rainbow Critters first by defeating the World bosses.

Cuddles appears as one of the eight playable characters in the level-creation game Happy Tree Friends Adventures Maker.
Cuddles and his friends inexplicably end up facing a strange phenomena: Allay's crown giving off a strange glow. Bowser interrupts, but stops his actions upon seeing said anomaly. They soon end up fighting strange creatures called Hopmons before leaving for the Koopa Kingdom to plan their next action. At first, Cuddles and Bowser agree to work together to solve the problem, until the latter reveals that he has been tricking the former into getting a needed artifact for him.
Cuddles and his friends end up in prison, but thankfully, Minttles can be contacted for help. They soon escape with the help of TwinBee and Elica. After discussing a bit about the Hopmons' problem, Cuddles and his friends are asked to meet Sabby the Hopmon expert. Upon meeting him, Sabby tells Cuddles that non-hostile Hopmons live in the Crystal Cave located much further away. Later, Cuddles and his friends meet the kinder Hopmons themselves and begin to resolve their problem, one step at a time.
After overcoming various obstacles, Cuddles and his friends finally take care of the anomaly surrounding Allay's crown by placing it on a symbol deep inside Ice Cave. With that, the titular fire point (symbolizing Hopmons' home) and another point called the ice point (represented by an artifact; used to balance out the fire point) have their powers awakened. Cuddles is then given the Fusion of Points by the Crystal Cave Hopmons, who tell them that said artifact must be placed in the Space Palace located on the Moon to finally revert all harm done by Bowser and turn the hostile Hopmons back to their normal selves. On their way, however, Cuddles and his friends end up captured yet again. Only after exploring Bowser's spaceship and defeating him do the tree friends manage to place the Fusion of Points at the Space Palace.
In this game, Cuddles serves as the leading character except during the one time he and his friends got captured for the first time, where player control is shifted to Minttles temporarily.
Cuddles is a canary yellow rabbit with pink cheeks who inexplicably wears pink bunny slippers. His fluffy, curly white hair tuft and cotton tail look exactly the same. His ears move to match how he feels. For example, if he is happy they will stay up, and when he is sad they will droop.
He may look like a cute, cuddly, and sweet rabbit on the outside, but Cuddles's personality is somewhat mixed. On one hand, he can be rather bold, dangerously mischievous and fairly self-centered. On the other hand, he is most of the time friendly, caring, reliable, and responsible, making his personality more complex than the others.
Unlike the Happy Tree Friends show, Cuddles can understand and speak clear English, though most of his in-game voice clips still consist of grunts and yells. His voice is the typical cartoony high-pitched one associated with his mischievous personality, naturally just reusing voice samples from Kenn Navarro's performance, with only Yudhaikeledai having nearly accurate portrayal of Kenn's Cuddles voice.
In some games, Cuddles is a true silent protagonist, or does not speak in English. In Happy Tree Friends Adventures and Happy Tree Friends Adventures 3, Cuddles is completely silent.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Cuddles's most notable ability is his fast shooting, faster than other playable characters. This, of course, allows him to inflict more damage per second. He also shares the same basic abilities as the other playable characters such as running, jumping, swimming, and climbing, as well as surfing and piloting aircraft.
Cuddles is associated with electricity in Happy Tree Friends Adventures RPG: The Fire Point.
Friends and love interestsEdit
Foes and rivalsEdit
Bowser is Cuddles's arch-nemesis, and the two are locked in a never-ending cycle of conflict. Bowser constantly tries to take over the Happy Tree Kingdom and/or kidnap Princess Allay. Each time Bowser upsets the peace, Cuddles stops at nothing to defeat him and set things right.
