Roy is the deuteragonist and main antagonist/anti-hero in both the comic strip US Acres and the animated segments featured on Garfield and Friends.
Roy is a greedy, self-centered, loud, rude, and annoying rooster who prides himself on his practical jokes. Roy likes pranking his friends, his main target is Orson, he also frequently targets Wade in his antics, due to Wade being easily frightened by everything. He also likes to challenge Lanolin but she always wins by physical violence and wit. He is constantly into a scheme which, often than not, somehow gets out of hand, and Orson or another character has to pull him out of it. In spite of his love for pranks and mischief, Roy is often the one in charge of waking everybody up in the morning and defending the other chickens from predators, making him an important (if annoying) fixture in the life of the farm animals. Despite his selfishness, Roy can be a good person and sometimes apologizes for his pranks, but not too frequently.
- While he may not seem quite evil, Roy has been considered by the official Garfield website as an antagonist (though he is said to be more of an irriant, and not a bully).
