Henry the Moose is the main, titular character of the Henry the Moose series. As his name suggests, he is a moose and resides in The Forest of Canada. After unknowingly scarring a former classmate (Lord Tango in the present) for life, the victim takes power over a mighty nation and plans to destroy Moose Valley and its citizens. After Henry defeats Tango the first time, he is known as The Forest's Great Hero. He has been given the key to the Valley, and still fights evil when needed to. He adopted a lost baby pig named Porkchop and has an adopted sister named Moon.
Power-Ups found in various levels of The Chronicles of Henry the Moose can change Henry into a different form of hero, such as:
- M.D. Henry (Finding a Medical Coat)
- Boxer Henry (Finding the Boxing Gloves)
- Super Moose (Finding the Cape)
- Solid Moose (Finding the Headband and Glue-On Full Goatee)
- Henario (Henry in Mario form)
- Indiana Moose (Finding the Bull-Whip)
Henry is generally portrayed as harmless and friendly, though is sometimes shown to by very innocent - he mentally scars Tango the Llama Lord years before the events of The Chronicles of Henry the Moose and remains unaware of this. He is also very brave however, facing down villains such as Sunnyscythe on his own.
In his first adventure, Henry is saved by Mario from being sniped by an enemy henchman of Tango the Llama Lord. They team up and uncover what the insane Llama Lord is plotting against the citizens of Moose Valley. Meeting several other heroes, Henry gains the strength to defeat Tango and keep Moose Valley safe.
In Henry's second adventure, he, along with Porkchop, must defeat an unruly alpaca bent on "forest-domination".
Henry appears various times in Neverworld The First and has been confirmed to be a part of the new Chess Crew in the sequel, Neverworld The Second.
He also appeared during the final battle of Countdown to Final Smash Bros. and fights Sunnyscythe, one of the game's primary antagonists, himself and unarmed. Sunnyscythe electrocutes him, however he survives his ordeal as he is seen as part of the crowd in the epilogue waiting for the emergence of the Rainbow Road.
