Happy Tree Kingdom Veteran



Flippy is one of the main characters in the HTFA series, as well as a main character in the canceled HTFA spin-off, Magical Flaky.

Character BioEdit

Flippy is a male bear. He wears dog tags around his neck and a green beret with checkered crest on his head. He is a retired veteran soldier in the Army. He fought in the Weaponized Animal Regiment (The W.A.R), and he has an obsession with making booby traps inspired by the Viet Cong, as well as a flashback of his experience of being held captive by them. In addition, his attire seems to resemble to the U.S. Army Special Forces, which played a role during the Vietnam War. As he fought for years, he was promoted to the rank of sergeant.

He has a severe case of post traumatic stress disorder. Whenever he sees or hears something that reminds him of war (e.g., gunshot-like sounds or crackling campfires), he goes insane and kills everyone around him and sometimes himself, believing that he is still in war. While insane, several physical features about him change: his eyes turn a different color, usually green or yellow, his voice changes from high and cute to low and evil, and his teeth become sharp.

Although Flippy can be the most cruel and dangerous character in Happy Tree Friends (when "flipped-out"), he is considered to be one of the most sociable and kindest of characters, when not flipped-out. This is proven in several episodes where he is seen doing social activities with some of the other characters such as going to the movies and playing hide and seek. When he "flips-out", he does not remember the bloody rampage that follows.

He appears to be good friends with Flaky as they are shown doing activities together like going to the movies, playing hide and seek, and going camping. This has led some fans to believe that he has a crush on her. Despite that they appear to be good friends, Flaky develops a phobia of him. She gets so scared of him, that she gathers the courage to kill him, going to the point where she stabs him in fear, when he tries to help her. He also has an allergic reaction to peanuts (or venison) just like Flaky, but he doesn't puff up like her. Flippy also appears to be an extremely heavy sleeper.

He is also one of the most popular characters in the show.

Flippy's evil side is considered deadly and scary, as he cannot control himself during his rampage.


  • According to his uniform, he has a rank of a Sergeant.
  • A majority of the time Flippy flips out, he is seen with sharp teeth.
  • Flippy's evil side appears to be cannibalistic.
  • Flippy is one of the green characters.
  • He seems to be fairly wealthy since his house is full of trophies, statues, suits of armor, and a plasma TV.
  • Flippy is usually considered the character with the biggest fanbase.
  • Flippy generally has a very difficult time killing Lumpy.
  • He's a Roman Catholic.
  • Flippy sleeps with his beret on.
  • Flippy is a main character alongside Flaky, though not playable, in the canceled Magical Flaky. He'll probably become a playable character in HTFA Legends.
  • Flippy makes another appearance as both a NPC and a boss in HTFA 6.
  • According to a vote held in deviantART for Brandy's replacement (since Brandy's creator quits HTF fandom), Flippy won at the final attempt (the first attempt was won by Wopter, while Flippy survived with 1 vote). This means Flippy will make his first role as a playable main character in HTFA Legends spinoff.
  • A spoiler from radel999 shows that Flippy (along with Sniffles) will become another playable character but is only limited to the mini games in HTFA Deluxe.
  • As shown in a short playthrough of HTFA Legends, Flippy's special attack is firing a gun, which can fire 3 bullets at a time. This was done due to Brandy being removed from the character roster and Brandy himself was the only one who has a spread shot as a special attack.
  • HTFMegaman set Flippy's fanon age as 13, which is too young considering his "war veteran" status.
  • Flippy first debuted in a secret level in HTFA 2, being a secret boss you can fight. Defeating him will give you 20 extra lives at the start of the game.
