- "There will be no mercy!"
- ―Major Chip Hazard's catchphrase
Chip is the platoon leader of the Commando Elite.
He is the ideal combat commander: Aggressive, logical and brutal. Chip leads by example, and his troops would follow him anywhere.
Chip Hazard and the rest of the Commando Elite were designed by Larry Benson who was toy creator of company called Heartland Playsystems, which was later bought out by Global Tech. Industries. His business partner's name was Irwin Wayfair who was the designer of the Gorgonites.
In his box, Chip came with his trademark pistol and a shotgun and could be activated by the command "Ten-Hut!"
During the night Chip broke out of his box and set up his first directive to activate the rest of his troops to general quarters within the toy store by the same general orders that activated him which was: "Commandos, Ten-hut!".
Then from there Chip and his troops set out on the search and mission to destroy the Gorgonites they saw.
In which this case they were ultimately successful at destroying Troglokhan.
Next, when Link Static later the next morning noticed Archer being helped by a human named Alan Abernathy Chip set up the objective to try and destroy Archer. For this assault, they fired one Commando named Brick Bazooka at Alan's bike so he could destroy Archer within Alan's backpack. In this situation, the assault was a mission failure because Brick Bazooka got his leg caught in the bike chain in which he was thrown off the bike but later then reassembled. As the Commandos' next plan, they secretly sneaked into Alan's house in which he was keeping Archer. While Alan was asleep, the Commandos trapped Archer and then stringing him up and started lowering him into the waste disposal unit in the sink. Fortunately, Alan heard the noises and rescued Archer. But while trying to do so, he was attacked by one Commando named Nick Nitro. After Alan was cut by Nitro's saw blade, he then shoved Nitro into the waste disposal unit. This tore up Nitro's legs pretty badly. By then the rest of the Commandos had already fled including Chip.
After the escape from Alan, the Commandos then moved into the garage of Alan's next door neighbor's house where Christy Fimple lived and began work on new war machinery. Soon after Nick Nitro's death because he was very badly torn up, Chip Hazard took Nick's microchip and ultimately installed it into the Gwendy Dolls of Christy Fimple. Then from there, the Gwendy dolls captured Christy and made her a hostage so the Commandos could make their proposal to Alan to surrender the Gorgonites. When Alan came to the house of Christy he then left a decoy of the Gorgonites inside a box. While the Commandos went to go destroy the box, Alan and Archer sneaked into the back of Christy's house. The Commandos ultimately did not know it was a decoy though.
To vanquish the suspected Gorgonites that were in the box, they stuck a dynamite stick in the box to blow it sky high. Then after the explosion when the Commandos noticed the box was a decoy they moved back to their original positions. When the Commandos got back to their positions, they noticed Alan and Christy (their hostage) was escaping. When Alan and Christy got outside, the Commandos followed them in their new war vehicles by blowing the garage door off and chasing the both them down the street on Christy's moped. The Commandos were in hot pursuit until Christy's moped jump over the a small river. When the Commandos tried to jump the river, they crashed into a huge explosion. Alan and Christy thought all the Commandos were dead, but they ultimately did not notice Chip had survived. Then from there, Chip found a Commando toy store army that was being shipped back into a Heartland Playsystems truck and being shipped back to the company for being defective. He then threatened the driver Joe with a knife and made him drive the truck back to the Abernathy's house. There he staged one last assault on the Gorgonites and their human allies.
After the destruction of Chip's makeshift helicopter, he engaged in a knife fight with Archer atop a transformer pole. Chip defeated Archer and kicked him to ground below and declares victory is theirs, but Alan (who was clinging to the transformer pole) then grabbed Chip and put him between the two transformers thereby creating an electrical circuit (while also frying Chip Hazard's circuits), causing the transformers to explode and send out an electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
While the blast is taking place Chip fries in agony. The EMP blast neutralized the X-1000 micro-processing chips in all of the Commandos, killing them.
There will be no mercy! - Chip Hazard's signature
The typical image of the battle-hardened soldier Chip was very bitter, cruel, sadistic and brutish. He also showed a deep capacity for honor and was unimaginably devoted to destroying the Gorgonites. He did show emotion on one occasion when Nick Nitro died and he dictated that "his battery had run out, but his memory would keep going and going and going" and that his death would be avenged.
He was also extremely arrogant and very narcissistic, taking immense pride in his very own complete precise main primary militaristic status and in his abilities. Because of his arrogance and narcissistic evil, he fails to see other threats and he mostly gets careless which lead to his downfall. He was highly very intelligent and shown to be a brilliant tactician, with an analytical mind and a even weaponry intellect. He on one occasion showed sympathy towards his prisoners, one example being the quote: Are you scared? We're all scared. You'd have to be crazy not to be scared!.
He could be insensitive and emotionless, shown when he frequently contradicted and criticized his own troops, but this is possibly in order to toughen them up. He displays incredible physical attributes and has an uncanny level of durability and endurance, as he survives being blown up, crushed and the destruction of his custom-built helicopter.
He was a natural leader and an unerringly capable commander, taking charge in the final battle for the Gorgonites. He was also a psychotic sociopath, extremely self-centered and also seen to be a very complete dry psychopath.
Chip Hazard in the video games
Chip Hazard is the main antagonist in all the video games. He is shown in some of the levels in the one-player mode, also he is the final foe that Archer has to defeat in the final level and battle. He is also a playable character in the PlayStation video game in the two-player mode where he can battle against Archer and try to win a battle by killing his foe 5 times, or he can try to win by collecting 3 flags and bringing them to his flag-holder and he can also summon one of his Commando weaponry, Bipod, Mortar and Sentry to assist him in battle and protect him from his foes, if he opens up a spinning diamond that he has stood underneath, though remember he can only summon one of his allies at a time.
If he tries to summon two of them, the allies already summoned will then disappear. If Chip Hazard wins in the frag-mode or flag-mode he is also shown in the victory screen, with them saying "Victory Chip Hazard". Then you can choose to quit the two-player game, that either Archer or Chip Hazard has just won or replay it and start over that same two-player, to see who else might win, or lose. Whoever loses in the two-player mode after someone else has won, then the loser is never shown on the victory-screen only the winner, because they they only want to to show who wins and not who loses.
Small Soldiers Squad Commander
In Small Soldiers Squad Commander, Chip Hazard's personality is very similar to his movie counterpart (and has the same voice actor). He is still extremely devoted to his main goal of destroying the Gorgonites and maintains most of his arrogance and militaristic demeanor. However, unlike his movie counterpart, he does not seem to mind targeting humans (in the movie, he classified humans as civilians and only attacked those he perceived as Gorgonite allies).
In terms of gameplay, Chip Hazard is supposedly the most well rounded of the Commandos, with all of his statistics being average and very consistent. This means, however, that none of his statistics are the highest of his team. In fact, his power, health and range are all ranked the lowest of the squad. He fights using a pistol.
