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.
The Military Chicken relocates to a random point on the screen, then shakes for a second, and releases three purple neutrons at angles 45°, 90°, and 135°.
The Military Chicken throws four grenades. Those grenades will fall down and explode. A green AoE effect appears before this happens.
The Military Chicken shoots two knives at you. It will grunt before it uses this attack.
The Next Wave
It's first encountered at the end of Pluto. There, it has 5000 health. After dying, it gives 25000 points and sometimes 10 drumsticks and powerups. It will constantly use the Spread Neutron attack.
It's encountered again at the end of Uranus. Two Sarge Chickens spawn there, each having 7000 health. After death, they give 39000 points and sometimes 10 drumsticks and powerups. It will constantly use the Spread Neutron attack.
It's encountered yet again at the end of Jupiter. Three Sarge Chickens spawn there, each having 9000 health. After death, they give 53000 points and sometimes 10 drumsticks and powerups. It will constantly use the Spread Neutron attack.
It's encountered for the last time at the end of Venus. Four Sarge Chickens spawn there, each having 13000 health. After death, they give 71000 points and sometimes 10 drumsticks and powerups. It will constantly use the Spread Neutron attack.
Cluck of the Dark Side
It's first encountered at the end of the Mad Madam Madámme chapter. There, it has 80000 health. After dying, it gives 50000 points, 10-12 Food items and a Powerup. It will first use Grenade Throw, then Knife Throw.
It's encountered again at the end of the Our Darkest Hour chapter with the Party Chicken. There, it has 125000 health. After dying, it gives 125000 points and 10-12 Food items and a Powerup. It will use the same attacks as last time, however Knife Throw will be much faster.
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.
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).
