Concept and Creation

Hardboiled Chicken Concept

Sian Yue Tan started Hardboiled Chicken out (D1) looking like the prototype Hardboiled Chicken with no real neck, stocky body and a single wattle. He tried going for an Earthworm Jim-like (D2), but thought that a chicken soldier needed a bandana to cover his comb. Yue also gave him two wattles and sideburns, and removed the bottom beak to simplify his talking animation. He saw Behind Enemy Lines, so Yue hooked him up in a track suit – then a biker suit (D3). Yue found that something still wasn’t right. An executioner look (D4) and did the trick for Hardboiled Chicken (D5).


The original Cock of War, a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus. In his past as a child, he ran away from a city that was being terrorized by the Penguins. The Penguins caught up to him and he was captured, mind controlled and receives masterful training by the Penguin Army.


Hardboiled Chicken is a mild-mannered, stone-cold Penguin killer. He have always been a light grey color, like a hard-boiled egg.
