Flaky is a shy, red porcupine with white flaky dandruff on her quills (hence her name). She is known for being a coward and scared of many things, resulting in her often laughing nervously. However, on occasion, she has had moments of bravery and faced her fears. It has also been shown that she is a close friend to Flippy knowing personal information and about his condition. However, she is known to fear his other state, Fliqpy.
She has multiple fears and is very cautious of the state around her. As a result, she knows what it's like to die and knows what happens when death arrives.
- Her gender was once a big debate for fans. In early 2012, it was announced by the creators that she was indeed female.
- She is mostly shipped with Flippy, which is the most popular couple in the fandom.
- Flaky has psoriasis, a disease that involves flaking of the scalp.
- She may just have pantophobia, which is the fear of everything.
- According to Flaky's "Collect Them All" card, she is banned from balloon shops due to her quills. She also mentions on her MySpace that she is also banned from glass shops and party shops.
- Flaky is the character most paired up with other characters in fanart, possibly due to the fact that she is one of the only four females in the show.
- Flaky seems pigeon-toed at many times, usually when she is nervous. However, it will occasionally happen when she is not nervous, scared, or shocked, most noticeably in The Wrong Side of the Tracks, when she is walking with Cuddles to the roller coaster.
