General Trivia

  • Even though Splendid has the ability to fly, he has acrophobia (fear of heights), which is revealed in the "Collect Them All" section. This is may have been a joke as Splendid can be seen flying in the sky in several episodes and he doesn't seem to have any signs of fear while flying.
  • Splendid is the only character whose name is an adjective and doesn't end with a "y".
  • While Cuddles is the most advertised character in reality, Splendid is the most advertised character in the HTF universe. He appears as a toy in A Sight for Sore Eyes, there is a Splendid costume, which Toothy wears in Remains to be Seen for Halloween, he appears on comic books in Suck It Up and Wrath of Con, and in the latter episode he also appears as toys and on a poster. The S for his name is also seen on T-shirts in the same episode. He is also branded on punching bags in Just Be Claus.
  • Every time he hears trouble or after he saves someone, Splendid usually hums his own superhero fanfare. The only episodes were he didn't hum are Helping Helps and See What Develops.
  • Splendid is the nineteenth character to appear in another episode after dying, as he first died in Class Act and came back in Better Off Bread.
  • His heat vision usually looks like a red laser, but in Just Be Claus, his heat vision resembles fire.
  • All of the TV episodes that star Splendid features all four blue characters (including him).
  • In Better Off Bread, It's a Snap, and Breaking Wind Splendid shows signs of disliking his job and getting tired of having to save everyone.
    • Besides the fact that saving people stops Splendid from doing his own hobbies, he might also get tired of saving people because he's aware that the characters could save themselves. In Better Off Bread, if Giggles watched where she was going she wouldn't have fallen off the cliff, in It's a Snap, Lumpy could have easily avoided getting trapped in the giant bear trap, and in Breaking Wind, Splendid sighs and rolls his eyes when he sees Lumpy followed by a few other characters standing right in the open during a tornado storm.
  • Toothy and Sniffles may be Splendid's biggest fans as the former is often seen admiring Splendid and has a Splendid costume which he wears in Remains to be Seen for Halloween. The latter is seen to have Splendid comic books in Suck It Up and Wrath of Con and owns a Splendid action figure as seen in A Sight for Sore Eyes.
  • Splendid and Lumpy are based on the two protagonists from the hit television show The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends. Additionally, both characters are voiced by David Winn (previously Rhode Montijo), and their main fur color is blue.
  • A common misconception is that Splendid has never been in the same episode as Flippy. However, in Class Act, you can see Splendid arriving at the school before the explosion, while Flippy is in the background stabbing a Generic Tree Friend multiple times, however, they appeared to have not noticed each other. In the Internet/TV series, they have yet to meet each other face-to-face.
  • In the Overkill DVD box cover, Splendid is pictured flying in Flippy's direction fully aware that the latter possesses a bomb that is about to go off. This is, ironically, the only time Splendid is aware of Fliqpy.
  • Splendid's SSSSSuper Squad debuted in November 18th, 2008. It was scheduled to air on November 4th, but it was moved to 18th as the HTF Breaks aired around that time. Also, his show was originally entitled "Splendid Adventures."
  • While his hands are still mitten-like, they have lines indicating fingers in Ka-Pow!. His wingspans are also only visible when he flies.
  • It is possible that he, like Superman (the hero he is based off of), is an extraterrestrial since he is able to breathe in space, as seen in Better Off Bread, Gems the Breaks, and the Ka-Pow! episode Mirror Mirror.
  • Whereas Flippy kills others without a second thought, Splendid kills many tree friends by mistake.

    And now he comes...

    Likewise, the two haven't yet killed each other. Similarly, he has never tried to stop Flippy, despite him killing others in almost every episode he appears in.
  • He loves to cross-stitch and cook, as seen in It's a Snap and Better Off Bread.
  • In his debut episode, he had a high, childlike (not squeaky) voice, but in later episodes it has become much lower, like Lumpy's.
  • Usually Splendid doesn't speak, but in Wrath of Con, for the first time since he was introduced almost nine years prior, he clearly spoke.
  • In season 3 and season 4, his alliterate sentence is: Super squirrel swooping in for the save!
  • He is the first character to have farted onscreen, as shown in Breaking Wind.
  • Many people have wondered if Splendid and Flippy will ever battle, even though they have never met face to face. Some people believe that if this happened, the result would depend on if Flippy had kryptonut; otherwise, Flippy would have no chance. The reasoning for this is that Flippy was unable to kill even a deaf Lumpy in Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow, who was not even aware of Flippy trying to kill him. He also loses a fight to Lumpy and gets himself killed again when Lumpy has only one arm and a leaf blower in Remains to be Seen. Splendid, on the other hand, is pretty much invulnerable to everything, from meteorites, to lava, to getting crushed by the moon, to a toxic planetary-wide explosion, while Flippy got killed by something as mundane as a truck running him over.
  • In Splendid's SSSSSuper Squad, his legs are often shown staying in the "heroic step" position, no matter what he is doing.
  • The "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" character, Rainbow Dash, is similar to Splendid because of their heroic behavior and abilities.

Design

  • He seems to be the first and only character to be designed to look like he has pectoral muscles - his

    How he thinks he looks compared to real life.

    chest is slightly bigger than his lower torso.
  • He is also the only character to be drawn with a belly button, as seen in Wrath of Con.
  • In the Internet shorts, the bottom of Splendid's stomach marking is straight. But in the TV series, the bottom is curved like the other characters, and it became much larger than the others. This is to add cuteness to his appearance.
