Devious is a fan-made character of Happy Tree Friends. He is set to appear as a minor antagonist in The HTF Movie.

Character Bio

Devious is a light purple gerbil who wears a black uniform with a belt, and a mysterious button on the buckle. He also has a red monocle-like attachment over one of his eyes. His other features include a goatee and whiskers that look like a pointed moustache.

He calls himself the "supervillain" of HTF City. But really, he is the evil equivalent of Splendid, his arch-nemesis. While Devious is known to create a variety of inventions to help him with his evil plots, he often ruins his own plans due to bumbling, leading to his deaths. To add to his naiveness, he once named his team M.O.R.O.N.S. (Malicious Ominous Rebellion of Obliteratingly Nefarious Schemes). His schemes almost always fail, but he defeated Splendid for the first time in New Leaf.

His backstory was revealed in the episode Origin of Evil. It was shown that Splendid became popular for stopping an ice cream truck from crashing. Jealous of Splendid's fame, Devious tried to do the same with another ice cream truck, except he caused it to crash and killed others in the process. His following arrest and ridicule by Splendid caused his villainy.

Due to his backfiring plans and his bad karma, Devious almost always dies in his appearances. The only episodes he survived are currently Don't Axe Me A Question! Part 2, Origin of Evil, Against All Negative, A Cam-pain In The SideWishing Well DoneNutty or NiceThe Dark Bird RisesDeviously Devoted To YouFirst and Fort-Most and Despicable Him. He did die in Splendid Origins, but only in a movie.

  • He was created to take the role of an incompetent supervillain, since the series already has an incompetent superhero (Splendid).
  • He is the second character to have a goatee. The first is Gutsy.
  • His uniform somewhat resembles the uniform of Megamind (a Dreamworks villain).
  • He may have been based on Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers films. He could also be a dead ringer to Dr. Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb due to his incompetent plans.
  • The story of his eye attachment has never been explained. When he was younger, his eye was normal. But after he descended to the dark side, he had it.
  • Despite his evil nature, he gets along with Splendid in Nutty or Nice. Though he was evil in Naughty or Naughtier, possibly due to Splendid's absence has been given an opportunity.
  • His deaths often involve explosions or exploding.
  • Josh is his most frequent victim.
  • He is a Suspect-At-Large for the F.I.G.H.T. agency.
