Points of Interest

Earth

Having first appeared in the first Chicken Invaders, Earth is the Hero and every human's home planet that orbits around the Sun. It's also the main target of the Chicken invasions, due to humans oppressing their earthly brethren. In Cluck of the Dark Side, you get to visit it to mount the Humanity's Greatest Fan on the surface. By the end of this game, its orbit was slightly perturbed due to the Fan's power.

Solar System

The Solar System is the Hero and every human's home star system, which is located on the Local Galactic Arm. It first appeared in the first Chicken Invaders. It contains eight planets - four terrestial (including Earth), and four giant. Pluto is also counted as a planet in the earlier games. Other points of interest here include the Asteroid Belt. The entire solar system was currently invaded only once in The Next Wave, with the other invasions centering only around Earth.

Ultra-Celeritas Comets

Having appeared in the fifth chapter in Revenge of the Yolk, on the far ends of the Orion Galactic Arm are the ultra-celeritas comets, which supposedly fly faster than light. The Hero uses them in his journey to his home to boost his speed.

Madam Madámme

Having appeared in Cluck of the Dark Side, Madam Madámme is a galactic oracle that resides near a star located ten thousand light years away from Earth in the Orion Galactic Arm. The Hero went to her for help on how to save his planet.

Oceans cover 98% of its surface and it's rich with aquatic life, with animals resembling Earth's jellyfishes and octopuses residing here. A long-extinct alien race has chosen this planet to be the hiding place for the first of the Artifacts required to build the Humanity's Greatest Fan, the Blade of Revolution.

Gamma Chthon

Having appeared in Cluck of the Dark Side, Gamma Chthon is a planet located on the Cygnus Galactic Arm. Its surface has been long scorched due to its nearby sun's extreme heat. However, it also has a vast underground network of caverns that extend deep into the mantle. A long-extinct alien race has chosen this planet to be the hiding place for the second of the Artifacts required to build the Humanity's Greatest Fan, the Source of Power.

Eta Astropelecae

Having appeared in Cluck of the Dark Side, Eta Astropelecae is a planet located on the Scutum-Crux Galactic Arm. It's a frozen wasteland with liquid nitrogen oceans and violent thunderstorms. A long-extinct alien race chose this planet to be the hiding place for the final Artifact required to build the Humanity's Greatest Fan, the Thingamajig of Vagueness.

Trivia

  • Pluto is counted as a planet in the earlier Chicken Invaders games, since they were made before 2006, when it was reclassified as a dwarf planet by the IAU.
