|~ King Peppy in Trolls|
Peppy, also referred to as King Peppy, is the retired king of the Pop Trolls and Poppy’s father. He's a major character in the opening storyline of Trolls, and has a supporting role throughout the franchise.
King Peppy is an orange-skinned Troll with pink frizzly hair, eyebrows and a mustache with grey streaks on them. He has a yellow nose and brown eyes. He wears a green and blue waistcoat, and green pants.
He often carries a blue walking stick that helps him walk, but also doubles as a microphone.
His appearance is mostly the same as in Trolls. A notable difference is that he has less grey streaks on his hair (which in turn divide it into sections of different pink shades), with none on his eyebrows and mustache, both of which are longer and thicker.
King Peppy, as the brave leader of the Pop Trolls, led his people on a torch-lit escape to freedom from Bergen Town. His heroism and valor were the stuff of Troll legend. Quick with inspirational words of wisdom, King Peppy ushered in a new era of happiness and security in Troll Village.
Now it’s 20 years later, and King Peppy has become a grandfatherly elder statesman to the Trolls. A tad dottier and forgetful than he was as a young man, King Peppy brings some unintentional humor to the Trolls, but is still beloved by everyone in Troll Village, and his legacy lives on in his daughter Poppy.
- He led the great Troll escape from the Bergens 20 years ago.
- He never leaves a Troll behind.
- King Peppy’s a bit absent-minded — but if he ever misplaces anything, it’s usually stuck in his hair.
- King Peppy won’t let anything stop him from protecting his trolls… not even his underwear.
Trolls World Tour
Now that he’s passed the crown to daughter Poppy, King Peppy feels he can relax a bit. But when Queen Barb forces him to confront a secret past, he must tell his tribe about the six strings.
Peppy is the old King of the Pop Trolls, a leader who lead by courage and example, taking risks under the motto of "no Troll left behind". In Trolls, it was shown that he was strong, fearless and determined to save his people from further harm. However, 20 years later he was not the Troll had been in his prime, and had to face allowing Poppy's friends to die to protect the rest of his people. He was helpless to protect his people, even though he still had the courage in him and was faced with the decision of protecting those left behind by going against his earlier belief. He was reluctant to see his daughter Poppy go after her friends, but was happy that she saved everyone in the end and proved her worth enough to become Queen.
King Peppy is shown as a wise teacher in Trolls: The Beat Goes On! and has sage advice on things, but he has his eccentric side as well. For example, in the episode Royal Review, he gives his daughter a frowny face in the primary vote to teach her a lesson, though he isn't clear what the lesson was himself. He's accepting of his elder status and even laughs at his own expense. King Peppy had been a bit of an adventurer in his prime. He can be seen in Queen of the Castle giving up some of the numerous books he had gathered over time. In Scrapbookmobile, it was shown that he had some of the greatest scrapbooks scissored, which other Trolls enjoyed reading, though due to poor memory could barely remember them enough to recreate those books.
Peppy doesn't always tell his daughter everything despite being Queen, believing that she should learn things when she's ready. He didn't tell her about the other Tribes because he felt she wasn't ready, but Queen Barb's conquest of the Tribes forced him to reveal that secret to her. However, he's oblivious about the version of his Tribe history being changed in context. He lived in fear of other Trolls and the approaching threat by Barb was even enough to attempt to overwrite Poppy's decisions to not run from the Rock Trolls and saw the Rock Trolls as a true threat, unaware that they had in truth seen the Pop Trolls as the biggest threat.
Their relationship is generally one of great respect; Peppy is glad to have her as a daughter and Poppy looks to him for sage advice. Poppy admires her father and wants to be a good leader to the Trolls like he was, but sometimes just lacks the experience and Peppy is known to chip in advice from time to time.
In Trolls World Tour, he has a row with Poppy over what's best for their people with the incoming threat of Barb, and Poppy has to remind him that she is Queen now. He accuses of her of not listening to him, which was warranted given that his daughter would go on without listening to anyone throughout the movie. He shows sorrow when Poppy appears to have been converted to a Rock Zombie, but then takes pride in her for stopping Barb and wastes no time to take credit for raising her, calling himself a "genius" for doing so.
Skills & Abilities
Due to his aging body, he has physical restrictions; in the escape from Bergen Town, he carried a number of Trolls who had left behind on his back.
In the Trolls era, he was listed as a Rainbow Troll. His "True Colors" are unknown.
In his youth, King Peppy was the heroic King who vowed to save his people by running away from the Bergens. He tends to fall back onto this tactic later in the movies. In the main storyline of Trolls, when Chef attacks during his daughter Poppy's party, he tells her that the surviving Trolls need to run. In Trolls World Tour, he suggests the same when Queen Barb announces her Rock World Tour. As a leader, one of Peppy's duties is to protect his people no matter what, but he often relies on the "run and hide" tactic, running away from danger rather than facing it.
As a leader, Peppy was known for his strength of body and mind, matched by his determination and will to carry on. While how long his reign lasted is unknown as that information is unavailable, he was the King who successfully saved his people from Trollstice under the oath of "No Troll left behind!" on the day his daughter Princess Poppy was set to be devoured by King Gristle Jr.. It was also his duty to make new holidays, with Funsgiving being one of those holidays he declared.
It has been mentioned in Trolls: The Beat Goes On! that in his youth Peppy was highly adventurous and went on many great adventures, though only few details of these adventures are known.
When he was leader, it would have been his duty to teach young Trolls about being a Troll. Now retired, he extends his knowledge to try and help his daughter with sage old advice. However, he hasn't necessarily revealed everything he knows to her, as evidenced by his neglecting of telling her about the other Tribes until Queen Barb became a threat.
"Peppy" means "lively and high-spirited".
- Peppy is one of the only two elder Trolls seen in the movies, the other being King Thrash.
- In the Trolls: The Beat Goes On! episode Don't Worry Be Peppy, Branch mentions that Peppy is three times his age, which would put Peppy at an age of at least 60 due to how old Branch is (around 20 years).
- Based on his estimated age given by the aforementioned episode, Poppy was born when Peppy was about 40 years old, since Poppy herself was at least 20 during the main storyline of Trolls.
- He's one of the few characters to have had 3 voice actors in the franchise.
- In Don't Worry Be Peppy, Branch mentions that Peppy is three times his age. Since Branch is at least 20 years old, Peppy is at youngest 60.
