Colin is a CO in the Advance Wars games. He is a young millionaire in Blue Moon.

Character

Statistics

Colin can build and maintain units at a cheaper price. However, his inexperience results in the units being weaker than normal.

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising

  • Day-To-Day:
    • 90% ATK for all units
    • 80% costs for all units (deployment and repair)
  • CO Power: Gold Rush (2 Stars - inexpensive)
    • Colin's current amount of gold is increased by 50%
  • Super CO Power: Power of Money (6 Stars - average)
    • All units' ATK is increased by 1% for every 300G that Colin has

Advance Wars Dual Strike

  • Day-To-Day:
    • 90% ATK for all units
    • 80% costs for all units (deployment and repair)
  • CO Power: Gold Rush (2 Stars - inexpensive)
    • Colin's current amount of gold is increased by 50%
  • Super CO Power: Power of Money (6 Stars - average)
    • All units' ATK is increased by 1% for every 300G that Colin has

Balance

Colin is part of the Broken Trio due to his CO abilities being too strong. Not only is his Day-To-Day weakness nowhere near compensating for his daily strength, but his CO Powers fuel his spamming capabilities.

A 10% reduction in ATK is hardly punishing for a 20% reduction in costs. Granted, it prevents Colin from getting 2HKs with most 55% scenarios and some 65% scenarios, but Colin isn't relying on those to begin with, due to the discounts, which particularly affect larger units. Various OHKs are also denied, but OHK isn't particularly reliable.

The lack of a DEF reduction also feeds Colin's brokenness. Some units either have no weapons at all or can deal little damage anyway, and since Colin gets his units cheaper, he can build additional Infantry with them to force his opposition to waste attacks on them, which allows Colin to pull off a stronger counterattack.

In addition to the overpowered Day-To-Day, Colin also has both of his CO Powers being too strong.

Gold Rush increases Colin's funds by 50% upon usage, for only 2 Stars. Combined with the price decreases, this allows Colin to buy higher tier units faster. Since Gold Rush is inexpensive and Colin relies on spamming and sacrificing units, Colin has no problem recharging it.

Power of Money, for the average 6 Stars, increases the ATK of all of Colin's units, at a rate of 1% for every 300G in Colin's funding. Since Colin can have more units, he is likely to have units that under normal circumstances can deal 7 HPs of damage or more to whatever he can attack. At 10000G, the ATK boost isn't too threatening, but at 20000G, it can turn a few of the advantageous matchups Colin can get into instant kills. 30000G will give off enough ATK to allow Colin's numbers to destroy everything standing in their way.
