Truffles is the losing main character in the Vote or Die poll. While technically not a main character, it was speculated he may have larger roles in future episodes due to his many cameo appearances (although this theory was debunked in 2016; and that he would remain a cameo so as to honor the spirit of Vote or Die)[1]. His numerous cameo appearances seem to serve as a regular gag.

Character Bio

Truffles is a grey-blue boar. He has a pig snout, tusks, hooves, a unique ear shape, and a twisted tail. He also wears sailor-like clothing.

He was one of the two candidates for being the new Happy Tree Friends character, but he lost to the other candidate, Lammy. However, despite losing, he still makes a very brief cameo in Lammy's debut episode, A Bit of a Pickle and many episodes afterward. His biggest appearance yet is in Clause For Concern, where he is seen unhidden for the first time, moving his body, and showing a new facial expression: a smile. He has also officially been seen dead, in All In Vein and later in By The Seat Of Your Pants.

Truffles is implied to have a spoiled brat-type personality. This was first hinted by his default grumpy-looking face and an image of him blowing a raspberry, indicating that he may be short-tempered and/or rude. One of his concept sketches describes him as a "little brat". Kenn Navarro later elaborated that Truffles was also meant to be "a bully that nobody liked"[2]

Truffles got around 70,000 votes while Lammy & Mr. Pickels got around 100,000 votes. Truffles himself has made more episode appearances than Lammy and Mr. Pickels, despite the fact they were the physical contest winners. Nonetheless, the combined screen time of Lammy and Mr. Pickels far exceeds that of Truffles.

Truffles has friends? Guess even stalkers have best buds.

However, due to his numerous cameos he has had numerous interactions with other characters, similar to Lammy. His only clear cut friend right now seems to be Toothy, as the latter has a picture of him in his locker in An Inconvenient Tooth.

Truffles rarely dies due to him not being a important character
