Yellow Comet, changed to Gold Comet in Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, is a faction featured in 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. Yellow Comet is usually the third stage of the campaign in these games, after Blue Moon and preceding Green Earth. It is traditionally associated with the fourth player in multiplayer maps.

Its real world parallel is considered to be Japan, due to the architecture of the HQ and cities, as well as the appearance of most of the units. The country's shape in Cosmo Land greatly resembles Japan.

Advance Wars[edit | edit source]

In the Campaign, Blue Moon were beseiged by a force masquerading as Orange Star led by "Andy" and thus Yellow Comet rallied their forces in anticipation of an invasion. However, when the real Orange Star entered their land to investigate the intentions behind Olaf's sudden retreat, Kanbei launches an offensive; Believing them to have finally come for their sacred lands.

Steadfast in his beliefs of Orange Star's conquests over Blue Moon, their leader, Kanbei, wishes to drive them off his beloved homeland while his studious daughter Sonja probed an investigation behind the goings-on in the background. Once they've realised that they've been tricked by Sturm, Kanbei swears an allegiance alongside Orange Moon and helps in the fight against Sturm and his Black Hole minions.

Advance Wars 2[edit | edit source]

In this game, Black Hole launches a major conquest campaign and has managed to gain a firm foothold in Yellow Comet's lands. Kanbei, disgruntled with their reckless attacks, leads the counter attack while Sonja works to dismantle the technology and intents behind their machinations. Returning from retirement, Sensei lends his wisdom and strategies to his former student while also taking part in their counter attack. Eventually, Black Hole's COs, and their forces, were forced to withdraw from the land altogether.
