First Appearance

Chicken Invaders (game)

Chickens are the main antagonists in the Chicken Invaders series. They are an intergalactic species of chickens bent on taking over (and later on destroying) Earth for oppressing their earthly brethren. They are known for being enormous (an ordinary chicken is as big as a small spaceship), being highly technologically advanced, as proven by many of the planet-sized constructions they can make like the CK-01 Henterprise and being an overall threat to the galaxy if not the whole universe.

History

Before the events of Chicken Invaders

We know very little about the Chickens' past, but they must have appeared on an unknown planet, eventually becoming a space faring civilization and becoming what they are today. Sometime in between their earthly brethren have also appeared on Earth. Sometime after in the neolithic age, humanity domesticated them and started exploiting them for food.

Chicken Invasion!

As the Chickens eventually learned about what was happening to their relatives on Earth, this made them very angry. Their leaders decided to invade and take over the entire solar system, starting with Earth, bent on revenge for what humans have been doing to their brethren. As this was about to happen, our hero was taking an order from Space Burgers. He noticed this, and went to save Earth from the Chickens.

The Next Wave

The hero thought that he did fend off the Chickens, but that was only a precursor to their main plan of taking over the entire solar system. With more troops than ever, and the Mother-Hen Ship, the Chickens were sure that they would win. But just like the last time, our hero went to save the solar system and defeat the Mother-Hen Ship with relative ease, successfully stopping the invasion.

Revenge of the Yolk

The Chickens have been made much angrier since the Hero stopped their invasion of the solar system for revenge on humanity, and now instead of taking it over, they want to completely destroy Earth. Their plan was to secretly construct the Yolk-Star™ behind the sun, and use it to do just that. After the invasion was stopped, our hero as usual went to the local Space Burgers to order a meal. Soon after that he noticed something behind the sun, so he flew there and found The Yolk-Star™ still in it's construction stages. After a short confrontation the Yolk-Star™ wanted to destroy the hero by shooting a laser at him. The hero brought up then a shield which helped him not to get fried to bits. It lasted until the hero got close to a black hole, and was sucked in, and arrived at the other end of the galaxy. After that, the Chickens dispatched troops across the galaxy to stop the hero before the Yolk-Star™ gets finished. He still manages to arrive at the solar system just before the Yolk-Star™ was made operational, and gets to destroy it, ending another invasion.

Ultimate Omelette

Since their invasion was stopped for the second time, they yet again decided to destroy Earth with a more powerful machine. They made The Egg Cannon which had to shoot a giant egg at the Earth, have it's yolk cook the surface temperature through the Sun and blow it to smithereens. A mysterious character, Hen Solo, came through a black hole and warned our hero about the Chicken's newest plan of destroying humanity and he followed him into the black hole Hen Solo came from. He arrived just when the Egg Cannon was tested in an another galaxy close to the Milky Way. It then flew away, leaving the hero with a bunch of Chickens to defeat. Also, this time the Chickens were becoming so desperate that they started making their Chicks fight against him. The hero followed the way the Egg Cannon was heading to, eventually meeting Hen Solo again at the center of the galaxy. It used the black hole as a quick way to get to our galaxy and it succeeded. The hero had to use it too because he had no other way of getting here fast enough, and he got lost between space and time quite a lot of times, before eventually arriving at our galaxy. He then came to defeat the Egg Cannon and end the invasion once again.

Cluck of the Dark Side

After their third defeat, the Chickens made yet another plan to destroy Earth, this time they constructed the Henterprise, which they used to dispatch loads of feathers to block sunlight from coming to Earth and freezing it over. It eventually arrived to the Solar System and did that just as the hero noticed this happening. He then confronted the Henterprise, but it flew away just as he was about to destroy it. After a bit of thinking, the hero went to Madam Madámme, the galaxy oracle, amd consulted her on how to remove the sunlight-blocking feathers. While they were talking about having to construct and use the Humanity's Greatest Fan, the Chickens overheard them and dispatched their troops to these locations where they tried to not let him get the artifacts. The hero went across the galaxy, collected all of the artifacts and consulted Madam on constructing the device. In meantime, he also curiously stumbled upon the Henterprise flying away. which he still didn't get to defeat. He then had to land on Earth to mount the device, with there being curiously Chickens to stop him. He used it to blow the feathers off, and did it, although it also pushed the Earth a little from where it was. The Henterprise then came back for revenge, and the hero destroyed it and ended the invasion yet again.

This is where the story currently ends until the 6th game comes out.

Types of Chickens

Chickens have various types of troops they use during invasions.

Note: Only rewards unique to each Chicken are listed here.

Ordinary Chicken

OrdinaryChicken

Health:
Chapter Number * 100
First appearance:
Chicken Invaders (game)
Rarity:
Very Common
Attack:
Ocasionally shoot an egg

Reward: 1-2 different units of Food, rarely 3 big Coins (15-20 Coins in CI2)

Points: 900 + Chapter Number * 100 + vest color * 100 (0 - red, 1 - orange/blue, 2 - yellow, 3 - green, 4 - cyan, 5 - blue, 6 - purple, 7 - pink) (italic - only in CI2)

Description: Ordinary Chickens are the most common Chicken troops you'll get to fight. Being there since the first game, the Ordinary Chicken's normal attack is simple - shoot an egg downward (in the direction opposite to which the hero is facing in CI5). Although they might seem quite easy, their real strength lies in their sheer numbers. In most of the waves you'll get to fight hordes of these, all ready to shoot and egg at your face, and this gets harder in the later sections of each game, as their eggs become faster and get shot at a quicker pace.

They're also very versatile. Need to home in on you? Pfft! Need to survive in harsh conditions just to get to our hero? No problem! Need to keep something with you to use it, like balloons? Easy! Need to fly in specific patterns? They can do all of this!

Because of how versatile Ordinary Chickens are, it's no wonder that they're the most common enemy you'll see.

Appearance: Their appearance is simple. They're normal Chickens that wear a vest. They can wear different suits, like leotards and underwear if you unlock them in their respective games (CI4 and CI5). As for how they looked inbetween each game, here's how it goes:

In Chicken Invaders 1, they looked much more blockier and simplistic than they do now, because they were only made out of simple shapes. They never blinked, and their "vests" (or rather body textures) were always blue in normal formations, and pink when they had to fly around.
In Chicken Invaders 2, nothing much changed aside from them being now able to wear vests in various colors. The colors of the vests decided on how many points you got from killing one.
In Chicken Invaders 3, their models were made more detailed - the vests looked actually like vests, the beak was made to look more natural, they could blink, and theynow have a tongue.
In Chicken Invaders 4, they were made more detailed again, the claws look more detailed, and their vests now have a stripped pattern. They can also look around now.
In Chicken Invaders 5, their heads were redesigned so that their combs aren't put in a straight line anymore, the heads themselves got more pudgier and they now always bear an angry expression. Their vests now also have a zig-zag pattern instead of a stripe pattern.

As for the holiday editions:

The Christmas ediions for CI3 and CI2 gave them only Christmas hats. The one for CI4 also gave them star patterns on their vests. As for the one for CI5, it gave them Santa clothes.
The Easter edition for CI3 changed them into something that more resembles Ordinary Chicks. The one for CI4 made them bunnies instead.
The Thanksgiving edition completely change them and all other chickens into turkeys.
The Halloween edition changed them into vampires with a skull shirt.

Points: 1350 + Chapter Number * 150

Description: Introduced in Chicken Invaders 5, starting from wave 41 these chickens are the more advanced Chicken troops you'll get to fight. These are quite similar to Ordinary Chickens, but these are better. They now shoot two eggs at once, making avoiding them harder, and they are now twice as tough! These aren't also used as often as the ordinary ones.

Killing them will reward you with some Food, and occasionally Keys and Coins.

Appearance: They are Chickens that wear a green pilot helmet, sunglasses, a belt, a medal of sorts, and something that resembles a swimsuit, typically green.

As for the holiday editions:

The Christmas edition doesn't change them at all, aside from making them wear boots.
The Halloween edition changes them into vampires.

Armored Chicken

Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette
Rarity:
Uncommon
Attack:
Shoot an ion downwards (or wherever gravity points at in CI5) which can turn up to 45 degrees left or right, sometimes aimed at the player

Reward: 1-2 different units of Food, rarely 3 big Coins

Points: 1600 + Chapter Number * 100 in CI4 | 800 + Chapter Number * 300 in CI5

Description: These guys are tough! They are the most advanced Chicken troops of this size you're going to see. Introduced later in both games they appeared in (wave 44 in CI4 and wave 81 in CI5), those chickens are not only way tougher than normal Chickens with 600 more health, but they have also got a dangerous attack - they can shoot a purple ion at where the gravity points at (or downwards in CI5) which can turn up to 45 degrees left or right. They sometimes aim it at you if you're close enough too, so be wary of that. Not only this, they're also as versatile as normal chickens, but they aren't used quite as often.

Appearance: They are Chickens that wear an armored suit, and starting from CI5 they also have green combs, green wattles and black eyelids.

As for the holiday editions:

The Christmas edition makes them look more like elves, with hats and suits. As for CI4, all it does is giving them christmas hats to wear.
The Easter edition changes them into bunnies.
The Thanksgiving edition changes them into turkeys, as expected.
The Halloween edition changes them into vampires.

UFO Chicken

UFOChicken

Health:
800 + Chapter Number * 200 (falling UFO has 1400)
First appearance:
Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette
Rarity:
Uncommon
Attack:
Ocasionally shoot an egg directly at you

Reward: Rarely 1-2 different Burgers, rarely 3 big Coins

Points: 5000 (Falling UFO gives 1337)

Description: Using Advanced UFO Technology™, these Chickens' eggs can overcome forces of gravity. Now they can be shot directly at you! Not only that, it's also quite strong, as it has 1200 more health than an ordinary Chicken. When destroyed, an ordinary Chicken and a falling UFO will spawn in its place.

Appearance: They are ordinary Chickens inside an UFO. After depleting half of its health, the UFO begins to spin frantically, and the upper glass part gets destroyed.

In Chicken Invaders 5, the UFOs were made shinier, and the Chicken inside has been updated to look like ordinary Chickens do in this game.

The editions change the Chicken inside's appearance to what they changed the ordinary Chickens into, except for CI4's Christmas and Easter editions where they oddly don't change.

Submarine Chicken

Chaken

Health:
???
First appearance:
Chicken Invaders: Cluck of the Dark Side
Rarity:
Rare (Only appeared so far on Epsilon Thalassus)
Attack:
Ocasionally shoot a torpedo to the left

Reward: None

Points: ???

Description: Some of the Chickens decided that they won't wear diving suits, and instead build and utilize a submarine specifically for use on underwater missions. While inside the submarine, the Chicken is able to shoot torpedoes to the left side of the screen, which can be dangerous. Because of their very specific use, the Chicken Submarines are used rarely, having been used so far only in two waves.

Appearance: They are Chickens inside a submarine that's loosely based off a Chicken, with parts that resemble a comb, a wing and a foot. When half of its health is depleted, the metal parts will crunch.

The special editions don't change them at all.

Chapter Number * 50
First appearance:
Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette
Rarity:
Very Common
Attack:
Occasionally shoot their waste

Reward: Rarely 1-2 Twin Legs

Points: 500 + (chapter number - 1) * 50

Description: Having joined since the fourth invasion, these youngins will also be the most common Chicken troops you'll get to fight. They are much more disposable, as a Chick is half as strong as an ordinary Chicken. Their attack also resembles the one their older brethren use: shooting their waste in the direction opposite to which the hero is facing, but they don't do that as often. Even at this young age, they are able to use complex technology, such as gatling guns and UFOs. They're also as much versatile as the adult Chickens.

Appearance: They are just Chicks. Nothing too special.

As for the holiday editions:

The Christmas edition makes them become gingerbread cookies, while the CI4 edition makes them wear christmas hats.
The Easter edition makes them wear eggs as clothing.

Reward: Rarely 1-2 Twin Legs, rarely 3 big Coins

Points: 2500 (Falling UFO gives 1337)

Description: Using Advanced UFO Technology™, these Chicks' waste is now powered up, as it's green and much larger than a normal Chick's waste. Not only that, it can shoot two of them at once now! It makes those Chicks become a much bigger threat than the normal ones. It's also much tougher while inside an UFO. After being destroyed, a Chick and a falling UFO will spawn in its place.

Appearance: They are Chicks inside an UFO. After depleting half of its health, the UFO begins to spin frantically, and the upper glass part gets destroyed.

In Chicken Invaders 5, the UFOs were made shinier.

The editions change the Chicken inside's appearance to what they changed the ordinary Chickens into, except for CI4's Christmas and Easter editions where they oddly don't change.

Trivia

  • Despite his apprentice being shown, the Henperor is never encountered and his true apperance will never be seen yet, and the only trace of his name being mentioned is on Wave 50, however, this is because his name is a play on words on "The Emperor's Apprentice" who is Darth Vader from the Star Wars series. Both are similarly named and have the same type of suit.
  • The Chicken Submarine's poster says "Silent but deadly" hinting that its attack is silent unlike other enemies.
