Import:Birdy

From Rare Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Template:Characterbox Birdy is a drunk, sarcastic, hay scarecrow who acts as the tutor for Conker and the player in Conker's Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded. He was voiced by Chris Seavor. He is a parody of the scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz and is the first character Conker interacts with. He is based heavily on a man who worked at Rare at the time, nicknamed "Beardy" because of his beard.

Birdy teaches the controls and abilities in the game, later asking for Mepsi Pax but instead accepts ten dollars. Mepsi Pax is a joke reference to the popular cola flavored drink Pepsi Max. The quote comes early in the game, when Conker finds himself blocked by a gang of dung beetles and Birdy comes along to help him. His instruction on Context Sensitive Zones allows Conker to get past the dung beetles. Conker pays Birdy for his help but the money escapes Birdy's pocket and jumps its way back to Conker.

Trivia

  • Birdy was intended to die for reasons unknown in the planned sequel to Conker's Bad Fur Day (titled Conker's Other Bad Day), before it was cancelled by Microsoft.
