Blue Moon is a fictional army present in Famicom Wars, Super Famicom Wars, and the first three games in the Advance Wars series; Advance Wars, Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, and Advance Wars: Dual Strike. Blue Moon is usually the second stage of the campaign in these games, after Orange Star, and preceding Yellow Comet. It is traditionally associated with the second player in Multiplayer maps.
Its real world parallel is considered to be the former USSR (particularly in Famicom Wars) or Russia, due to its antagonism against the American-parallel Orange Star, the likeness of the units and HQ, with the moon of Blue Moon passing a fleeting similarity to the sickle in the flag of the old Soviet Union.
In Advance Wars, the Commanding Officers are comprised of Olaf, the figurehead CO of the country, who operates best during snowy conditions, and Grit, presumably a defector from Orange Star, who is very experienced at using indirect units.
