Pickles, are one of the few sapient Foodimals that display human-level intelligence and appear to have formed a tribe-like society on the island. They are a more recent creation of the FLDSMDFR, so they are clumsy and erratic and have unique and bizarre ways of dealing with problems.


Pickles resemble large pickles with anthropomorphic traits, such as vine-like arms and legs with hands and feet made of leaves. Their eyes appears to be black olives with red centers that act like pupils. Their mouths appear to resemble a sliced cut in their heads with small seeds for teeth. On their heads, they may grow vines and leaves like hair, much like humans. They have varied appearances amongst each other and appear to have gender dimorphism, with females having an hour-glass figure, grassy eyelashes on their eyes and more leaves and vines on their heads than males.


Pickles developed a primitive culture, the ability to use tools such as fishing rods as spears, and a tribal society on the island. They communicate through simplistic grunts and can seem quite aggressive towards what they do not understand. They keep Foodimals such as Onions as pets.

Their favorite food is sardines or sardine chum.


  • The presence of Pickles as a major race in the second film may be a reference to the title of second book in the original book series, Pickles to Pittsburgh.
  • Cody Cameron created and photographed food sculptures of the Pickles, inspiring their tiny, beady black eyes and simple sliced mouths.
  • They are voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who gurgled water to make their sound effects.
  • The episode It's About Time reveals that the pickles are responsible for a Great Pickle Uprising at some unspecified time in the future.
