Koal (Japanese: チャッカ Chakka; Chakka) is a Commanding Officer enlisted in the Black Hole army. He is a new CO in Advance Wars: Dual Strike, introduced in the Neverending War mission, and a member of the Bolt Guard.

He is known as Koal in the American version and Zak in the European version of the game.

Role[edit | edit source]

Koal is one of the main antagonists in Advance Wars: Dual Strike. He is superior in rank to Jugger, appears to be equal in rank to Lash, but below Hawke, Kindle, and Von Bolt. His most notable battles are when he and Lash use a Black Arc to defend the first Black Crystal in Victory or Death!, his attempt to assassinate Hawke and Lash in Muck Amok, his attempt with Kindle to defend the first Black Obelisk using the Black Onyx, and his final battle where he and a clone of Kanbei reactivate the Twin Crown Volcanoes in Ring of Fire.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Koal is a bit poetic, often describing people and objects in elaborate terms. This even extends to his insults.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Koal is subservient and loyal to Kindle and sees himself, along with Jugger as one of her vassals. By contrast he finds Lash annoying, seems to distrust Hawke and dislikes the Allied Nations COs. In particular, he takes great delight in insulting Rachel, bragging that the Bolt Guard's actions will make Omega Land "as devoid of beauty as (her) face".

Skills[edit | edit source]

Koal is a variation of Adder, having a firepower boost on road terrain.
