[edit] Background

Olaf is a Blue Moon CO who grew up in Macro Land; his hometown was wiped out by Lash in Toy Box in the second Game Boy Advance game. At one time Olaf was an Orange Star CO, but eventually left to join his home nation's army, leading him to be a branded a "traitor" by those amongst Orange Star's senior command.

Olaf is a gruff CO whose units are at their strongest in the snow, able to move through the fury of winter without suffering any movement penalties. On the other hand, Rain is Olaf's bane, as his units burn up twice as much fuel moving through rainy conditions, and in Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, a reduced movement range.

Snow also increases the firepower of his units in Advance Wars: Dual Strike.

While he has been described by some as a pompous braggart who earned the respect of his peers and his people's admiration through his tactical prowess, he takes his work as seriously as they come, a polar opposite of fellow Blue Moon CO Grit.

[edit] CO Powers

[edit] Blizzard (3 Stars)

Blizzard summons a Snowstorm. Opposing units have their movement ranges cut in half when Snow covers the battlefield in Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, which is also the only way to slow down Sturm's units, preventing them from moving across all terrain equally as they normally would.

The snow condition lasts until Olaf's next turn except in Advance Wars: Dual Strike, in which the snow lasts for two days with increased firepower on both days.

[edit] Winter Fury (7 Stars)

Winter Fury summons a stronger blizzard, which deals 2HP damage to all enemy Units except those that are on Transports. Additionally, Snow becomes the weather condition until Olaf's next turn with the exception of Advance Wars: Dual Strike--in this game the snow lasts for two turns.

[edit] Tips

Olaf is at his best when it is snowing. Use the snow to your advantage and slow the enemy forces down, be it by stalling their advance or delaying their retreat (damaged units tend to retreat to bases for repairs).

Avoid the rain at all costs. Rain is where Olaf is at his worst, which slows him down like his opponents get slowed down by Snow. Drake's Super CO Power Typhoon also summons rain, so do your best to avoid that as much as possible.
