The first collection in the Derp Birds universe, the Derp Birds and PREDs are considered the main characters of the story and project. Once Derp Birds: Rebirth(2.0) launches, this collection is now considered legacy, and their primary use will be to swap for the upgraded to The Derp Birds collection.
Each Derp Bird has 7 unique traits: Head, Ears, Beak, Eyes, Body, Back, and Tail as well as a background trait. Each trait(except for the background) comes from one of the 14 archetypes. Some archetypes are rarer than others.
The 14 Archetypes
  • Dave
  • Astro
  • Magician
  • Ninja
  • Redneck
  • Stoner
  • DJ
  • Viking
  • Monk
  • Corpo
  • Cyborg
  • Buff
  • Mad Scientist
  • Deity
Derp Birds with all traits of a single archetype are called Perfect Specimens and have a unique background. Perfect Specimens earn more from staking rewards than other Birds.
All Derp Birds fall into 1 of 7 rarity ranks: Common, Uncommon, Scare, Rare, Epic, Mystical, and Legendary.
