Army Men: Sarge's Heroes continuity

The Green Army

The armed forces of the Green Nation, modeled after the U.S during World War II.

Colonel Grimm

The leader of the Green forces, he knows the glory and pain of battle.

  • Benevolent Boss: Victory will be his at any price, but Grimm won't see his troops sacrificed in vain.
  • Big Good
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Dies at the beginning of Sarge's War when Green Town was destroyed by Malice.
  • Ironic Nickname: "Happy Jack" Grimm. For extra irony, most occurrences of the nickname outright mention his grim outlook from having been at war with the Tan several times over several decades, right in the very same sentence as they mention the nickname.

  • Papa Wolf: He was ready to capitulate Plastro after he'd captured Vikki and threatened to kill her. Fortunately, Sarge was able to rescue her before it came to that.
  • The Stoic

Sergeant Hawk - "Sarge"

"There's nowhere to hide, maggots!" - Sarge

Bravo Company's resident blood knight who uses a flamethrower.


The Bravo Company's minesweeper, a weak and cowardly individual who is often the butt of jokes.

  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Dropped a Bridge on Her: Dies at the beginning of Sarge's War when Green Town was destroyed by Malice.

Captain William (Bill) Blade - "Blade"

The son of an officer, Blade has flying in his blood. He joined the Air Cavalry Squadron after graduating at the top of his class. He fights for what he believes in and will do whatever is necessary to accomplish his mission. He is one of the bravest men ever to serve in the Green Army. Living for the thrill of victory, Captain Blade is always optimistic and will take chances when necessary, especially to save Green lives. He knows he's the best at what he does and is willing to prove it.

Lt. James Marshall - "Woodstock"

"If they're running, I shoot 'em. If they're not running, they should be." - James "Woodstock" Marhsall

Lt. John Lawless - "Hardcore"

"It's not the size of your Rocket, it's how you use it." - John "Hardcore" Lawless

Cocky and headstrong, he often focuses on the fighting while ignoring his other duties. He loves the homing rockets because they're "hardcore".

Lt. Dave Parker - "Rawhide"

"Let 'em loose and watch the show." - Dave "Rawhide" Parker

He is as comfortable behind a rocket launcher as on a cattle drive. Riding in a helicopter is easy compared to taming a bucking bronco. He can winch any item with an uncanny steadiness of hand.

Lt. Felicity Wannamaker - "Bombshell"

"I just love the smell of Napalm in the morning!" - Felicity "Bombshell" Wannamaker

She has dreamt her whole life of sharing the cockpit with her one true love, Captain Blade. She'll do anything necessary to make him proud.

  • Weapon of Choice: Paratroopers. These brave, self-sacrificing individuals are perfect for long-range attacks, because they can chase down and destroy any enemy unit they see.

Lt. Jason Larkin - "Hardcore"

A wildman in a firefight.

  • Expy: Of "Hardcore" and "Rawhide" from the first Air Attack game, but mostly "Rawhide".
  • Thrill Seeker: An adrenaline junkie through and through, combat brings out the best in him.
  • Weapon of Choice: Swarm Rockets - Even the most agile Tan units can't escape when four separate homing rockets are headed their way.

Lt. John Lawless - "Hooligan"

The Tan army is nothing compared to the fight at a football game.

  • Expy: Of "Hardcore" from the first Air Attack game, from his real name right down to his Cockney accent.
  • Ironic Nickname: In the heat of battle, Hooligan's all business.
  • Weapon of Choice: Air Strikes that pepper the ground with bombs and leave enemy forces reeling.
  • Who You Gonna Call?: When you need superior firepower: Hooligan and his crowd control Air Strike specialty, that's who.
