Chuck the quail is a playable character in Jazz Jackrabbit 2 . He is not known to appear in Jazz Jackrabbit 3, or Jazz Jackrabbit Advance, but may be the bird in Jazz Jackrabbit. When playing as him, he has no attack move, but can fly strait upward, spin around in the air, like a missile, and if saved by Jazz, can shoot at enemies. When Chuck dies, he explodes, and falls to the ground, looking like a roasted chicken.
Chuck is the red and green quail. To attack enemies, he shoots. To obtain him, the player (Jazz , Spaz or Lori ) must shoot the cage he's trapped in, destroying it, and letting Chuck free. When the player gets hurt, Chuck gets scared away. The only way to get him back is by getting another bird, and jumping to the right twice, forward and backward. This is also the only way to get multiple birds. Chuck is also a playable character. However, when being played as, he cannot shoot, but unlike the ordinary Chuck, he has a 'missile' mode. By pressing control, the player can shoot him horizontally across an area fairly quickly. By pressing the down arrow with the control key, he can also divebomb as well.
