First Appearance

The Next Wave

Military Chicken is a boss present in The Next Wave and Cluck of the Dark Side. In The Next Wave, it was the smallest Big Chicken in the series, only slightly bigger than Chickenauts. It came back after a long absence in Cluck of the Dark Side, where it got heavily upgraded.

Appearance

In The Next Wave, it looks like a slightly smaller Big Chicken with military clothing. It's of the "regular" breed of Chicken. Cluck of the Dark Side saw a heavy redesign of it. Now it's of the "military" breed of Chicken. Its military attire was upgraded, and it wears shoes now. It is armed with fpir grenades and two knives. It will constantly look around the level.

In the Christmas editions, it becomes a snowman. The one for The Next Wave has it wear a green hat and scarf, while the one for Cluck of the Dark Side has it wear red ones. In Cluck of the Dark Side, it's also armed with carrots and cones. In the Halloween edition, it becomes a living jack-o'-lantern wearing a trillby. Its knives turn into pitchforks, and its grenades turn into corncobs.

Brothers Reunited

Strategy

The Next Wave

Attack them during the relocating phase of their attack and watch out for the Spread Neutron attack. When there are more of them present at once, try to focus mainly on shooting one of them.

Cluck of the Dark Side

Go above it once it uses the Grenade Throw, as staying near grenades is very dangerous. You could also die from them if you were catched in their blast radius as they explode. Knife Throw is safe if you stay in place and don't move at all. This way, the knives will miss you.

Trivia

  • The second encounter in The Next Wave once used to be identical to the first one, in that only one Sarge Chicken spawned. It was changed in 2.30.
  • The versions from The Next Wave and Cluck of the Dark Side are considered to be the same bosses.
  • It's the first Chicken in the series to have more clothes than just vests (in this case, a hat).
