Gale and Stella once had an extremely positive relationship, being best friends and constantly being together. Stella, however, had to put up with Gale's self-centered attitude but nonetheless accepted her as a friend after gale found the golden crown in the middle of the forest.
However, their relationship was axed at the end of the episode A Fork in the Friendship when Gale took the role of the queen with the Minion Pigs, and additionally when Stella was kicked out of her castle by minion pigs, breaking her heart. In Bad Princess, she sent the minion pigs to cut down the trees in the forest. Later after Stella stopped some of the Minion Pigs, Stella found Gale's Castle and entered it. Stella found a big wooden statue of Gale inside nearby the entrance of the Castle. They (Gale and Stella) interact again and Stella is very angry at Gale because she was responsible for the damage to the forest. So she let Handsome Pig command the Minion Pigs to kick Stella out of the Castle. In the episode The Golden Egg, Gale was spying on Stella with her gold telescope. Later, she tries to chop down the Big Treehouse with some sort of Tree Chopper but was stopped by Stella. They were glaring at each other in disappointment, but then Luca comes right in and hugs Gale, which then Stella takes him away. Gale didn't like that one bit. Gale sends off the Minion Pigs to attack while she looks in her book where she can find the Golden Egg. Gale continues to go forward with her Chopper to chop the Big treehouse while Stella and her friends fight the pigs off. Stella knocks Handsome Pig off the Chopper by throwing Luca at him. Then Stella throws a mallet at Gale, but she keeps ongoing. Poppy uses a huge hammer to hit the Gong, which breaks the instrument and the Chopper. After that, Gale and the Minion pigs retreated to the Castle.
Stella ends up attempting to move on with the rest of her flock and chooses to ignore what Gale has done until the events of Don't Steal My Birthday!, where Gale returned in what seems to be an attempt to throw Stella a party. However, due to her self-centered nature Gale ended up attempting to make the focus on her, and while Stella and Gale were bonding, it ended up negatively coming to an end. They don't interact again until To The Bitter End. Both Stella and Gale ended up being trapped inside an active volcano, causing them to bond together until Gale fell for the temptation of the Golden Egg, causing to be what seemed her demise and for Stella to believe that Gale had died.
However, this was not the case, as Gale managed to escape but no longer had her crown. The rest of the flock took her in, and Stella and her friends looked after her. Handsome Pig ended up retrieving the crown, and Gale returned to her role as the queen, causing Stella to be angered once again.
Gale constantly makes attempts to bring Stella and her friends to her castle, but Stella refused. After multiple attempts, she reluctantly gave in but ended up in a plan to get the golden egg back. However, Gale found out and ended up turning to gold in an accidental situation. Stella rushed over to aid her, remembering the past and in the end, chose to return Gale from gold. Gale saw the golden egg and was traumatized, running away with the Minion Pigs following her. Due to the conclusion of the series, it is unknown what happened afterward. Stella was scared of Gale with the Golden Egg.
Gale casually knows Red. Her charm alone at one point convinced him to take an exercise class with her, in spite of his excuses not to do so. In Angry Birds POP!, after Red's flock joined forces with Stella and her friends in their bubble-popping quest, however, Gale had no trouble seeing Red as just another threat to her plans. Later into the adventure, however, she sided with her fellow Birds once again.
While not under the influence of the Golden Crown, Gale is on amicable terms with Matilda and easily agrees to her plan for an early attempt to foster peace with the Pigs by establishing a dream resort for them. Eager to try out her idea, Gale is the first to establish one of its services, a spa.
Handsome Pig always tries to make her fall in love with him since she found the Golden Crown, it's shown that his romantic interest with her isn't because of it, however, as seen in Friends Whenever where helped her even without the crown. His attempts to reach the perfect love always fail due to something such as the plan turning out to be an accidental trap or she falls in love with the Golden Egg.

- She is the fifth member of the birds that is a villain aside of the pigs, the first is Nigel, the second was Darth Vader, the third is Red Bird in an episode of Angry Birds Toons (more specifically Golditrotters) and fourth is Sword Spirit.
- The word gale means storm. Gale's ability might be about storms, however this was later proven false.
- Actually, "Gale" refers to either the Gaelic name for a bird's cry or means "stranger" in Irish, fitting her villainous status and the fact that she betrays Stella and her friends according to her backstory.
