|Name|| NA: Kanbei |
|CO Power||Morale Boost|
|Super CO Power||Samurai Spirit|
|Appears In|| Advance Wars|
Black Hole Rising
Kanbei is the Emperor of Yellow Comet, which he also serves as a CO. He is also the father of Sonja. While Kanbei shows a samurai spirit, he can be a hothead to an extent. Can be overprotective of his daughter.
All of Kanbei's Units are top-notch with increased offense and defense ratings, but having such powerful Units comes at a price: his Units cost 20% more to deploy. He is a former student of fellow Yellow Comet CO Sensei.
 Morale Boost (4 Stars)
Morale Boost increases the firepower of all units under Kanbei's command by 17% with a 10% Defense boost.
Morale Boost got a buff in this sequel, increasing the firepower of Kanbei's Units to 150% and an increase in Defense to 140%.
For the second sequel in a row Morale Boost got a buff, this time increasing the firepower of Kanbei's Units to 160%. However, the Defense Increase was nerfed to 10%.
 Samurai Spirit (7 Stars)
 Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising
Kanbei's Super CO Power Samurai Spirit increases the firepower of Kanbei's Units to 150% and Defense to 160%. Additionally, when inflicting damage on a Counter-Attack, firepower increases by 50%.
 Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Samurai Spirit also got a buff in Advance Wars: Dual Strike. The firepower and defense of Kanbei's Units increase to 170%, and the damage inflicted on a Counter-Attack is doubled.
Clone Kanbei is a dangerous foe, especially if he uses this Super CO Power.
Kanbei hits very hard but his units cost 20% more War Funds to deploy. Taking that into consideration, deploy carefully to avoid running into budget problems.
In a Tag Battle, Kanbei is at his best with Sonja, Javier and Sensei. Colin and Hachi also makes fine choices for mass-deploying units at a cheaper price, then switch to Kanbei when it's time to go on the offensive!
