Hey there Kentucky fried chickens!!
With Phase 3 of the Kung Pow Quahog Event in full swing I thought I’d drop by with a post on defeating Kung Pow Giant Chicken, in the hope it will stop you from getting your feathers in a flap over him.
In this post I will go over the Basics of the Kung Pow Giant Chicken fight, in order to try to help you as you will need to defeat him to progress in the main Questline Pt. 8, completing this is necessary to move into Phase 4 when it launches. Be aware that you won’t get credit for any defeats before you reach Pt. 8, you need to defeat him when this part of the Questline is active in order for the task to complete.
You’ll find a post that will be updated each Phase to include our Foes and who can fight them HERE.
WHEN WILL KUNG POW GIANT CHICKEN APPEAR?
Kung Pow Giant Chicken will appear within a few hours of you starting The Most Mojo in the Dojo Pt. 3.
Tapping GO will bring up the information box for Kung Pow Giant Chicken.
Once you’ve done this keep checking your event area as this is where you will see Kung Pow Giant Chicken start to show off his battle moves.
WHAT DO I NEED TO START A BATTLE?
First, you will need to collect Expired Coupons, each attack costs 2 Expired Coupons.
Expired Coupons (Always): Get from Clearing Sensei
If you do NOT have the amount of Expired Coupons required, you will see “NEED MORE EXPIRED COUPONS” on the Battle screen no matter what Character you select.
Once you have 2 Expired Coupons, then “FIGHT” will appear once you select your Character/Characters.
HOW DO I SELECT A CHARACTER TO FIGHT KUNG POW GIANT CHICKEN?
Just tap on Kung Pow Giant Chicken in the battle arena, now when the Battle Screen appears you will immediately see on the positive side you can use up to 3 fighters to attack Kung Pow Chicken during an attack, but on the downside you will see he’s not only much stronger than the other foes but he also packs a very powerful punch. His Health = 32 and his Attack Power = 20. Ouch and Double Ouch!!!
Tap on + to add the Character/Characters you want to use for the current Battle and a check mark will appear on them. If you want just one, that is fine, although I don’t recommend it as you will see in my battle advice below. Then tap on “GO” to take you back to Battle Screen. (If you see a lock on the Character, you do not have them available)
Also remember a character cannot battle whilst busy doing another task. They can however do tasks between battles or whilst healing.
WHAT CHARACTERS CAN FIGHT KUNG POW GIANT CHICKEN?
The Characters you can use will depend on WHO you have purchased or unlocked…
Dojo Peter: Health 8, Attack Power 4, Critical Hit Chance 20
Johnny Lawrence: Health 8, Attack Power 6, Critical Hit Chance 20
Billy Blanks: Health 4, Attack Power 6, Critical Hit Chance 20
Yogi Fighter Brian: Health 4, Attack Power 6, Critical Hit Chance 25
WHAT IS HEALTH, ATTACK POWER AND CRITICAL HIT?
Health – The amount of damage you can take before you’re knocked out.
Attack Power – The standard damage you can do to your opponents health during an attack.
Critical Hit Chance– The higher the number the higher the odds of you doing a critical hit to your opponent. These are random, basically look at it like a lucky strike where you do more damage than your standard. These work on chance, you have no control over them, so really don’t think about it too much. Just know that it means you can knockout an opponent with one hit, but on the downside they can also do the same to you.
Now their Health and/or Attack Power it takes to defeat villans may change as the Event progresses, as we may see new villains to battle, as of know I am not sure on this… but we will have to see what happens as the Event progresses.
HOW MANY CHARACTERS DO I NEED TO FIGHT KUNG POW GIANT CHICKEN?
Technically you can fight with only one, but you will need to get very lucky with critical hits or Kung Pow Giant Chicken doing critical misses to defeat him with just one fighter. This is because there is a big difference from the Mr Washee Washee and Mr Miyagi Battles, with these you could chip away at their health at your leisure, taking days to fully defeat them but you can’t do this with Kung Pow Chicken as a timer starts upon your first attack on him, giving you only 24 hours to fully defeat him before his health is fully restored. I will explain this better when I go into attacks later in this post.
But if you’ve not purchased Yogi Fighter Brian, don’t panic as you can defeat Kung Pow Giant Chicken without him but be aware you will need to do multiple attacks to win unless you strike it lucky with a critical hit, which I think is very unlikely. If you get one please tell us in the comments. So with this in mind before you even think about attacking him and activating the 24hr timer make sure you’ve stocked up on Expired Coupons.
Now that you have the Basics, let’s look at a fight so you can see how things go down.
KUNG FU GIANT CHICKEN
Look in your Event area and you will see him strutting his stuff in the battle arena.
Tap on him and you will see the Battle Screen, here you will see….

- How much Damage it will take to defeat you (health bar) – 8
- The chance of a Critical Hit on him
- The amount of Expired Coupons you need to fight – 2
- The rewards you will get for defeating Kung Pow Giant Chicken
- The 24hr Timer starting to count down
BATTLING KUNG POW GIANT CHICKEN
Now I’m going to chat more about battling Kung Pow Giant Chicken, what follows is just my thoughts, you can of course ignore my advice and plot your own battle but I’m going highlight why you shouldn’t go with one fighter and stick with a combo of fighters for this foe.
And remember once you finish your first attack a timer will activate and you will only have 24 hours to fully defeat him before his health restores. You will see the timer above him in the event arena once it’s counting down.
ATTACKING WITH ONE FIGHTER AND WHY I DON’T ADVISE IT.
So if you look at the image above where you only use Dojo Peter, you have pretty dreadful odds as Dojo Peter can only inflict 4 Damage with each attack and it will take 32 damage to defeat Kung Pow Giant Chicken. And the odds are just as bad with regards your health, you only have 8 to Kung Pow Giant Chicken’s 32. Kung Pow Giant Chicken can wipe out your health with one attack. So basically you’re attack power and health isn’t going see you win the battle quickly, it will take repeat attacks and healing time unless you get in a critical hit or two. And after the first attack the 24hr timer will start to countdown, so you must reduce his health to 0 before it runs out or watch aghast as his health restores to 32.
Can you do it within 24 hours? Well only if you get lucky critical hits, and Kung Pow Chicken misses you in attacks, and let’s be honest the chances of this are slim and its probably not worth risking those valuable expired coupons to find out. So basically if you’re looking at chipping away his health with just Dojo Peter it’s doomed to failure as Peter’s attack power is too weak, it’s only 4 and it would take 8 attacks to clear Kung Pow Chicken’s 32 health. And with Dojo Peter’s health wiped out easily in attacks, he’d need to heal for 7 hours between attacks, so even if you’re playing round the clock you can’t do the number of attacks needed within 24 hours unless you’re willing spend a lot of clams on revive potions or healing him.
So I think we all agree Dojo Peter won’t cut it alone. But will any other character? Well the answer is probably maybe, continue reading to see why.
Like Dojo Peter, Johnny Lawrence alone is another doomed to fail, as with his attack power of 6, he’d need to attack Kung Pow Giant Chicken 6 times to defeat him, unless you get lucky with critical hits etc. And like Dojo Peter his health would be wiped out easily and as he also takes 7hrs to heal you couldn’t do the attacks necessary within 24 hours. You’d again be hoping for some critical hits or Kung Pow Giant Chicken to be unlucky and miss Johnny a couple of times. But what’s the odds of that happening? Are you willing bet you expired coupons on them? I’m not.
Now let’s send in this phases premium buy, Yogi Fighter Brian. Can he do it alone? Well, he’s got a chance but it’s going rely on very tight time keeping. He can do 6 damage to Kung Pow Giant Chicken each attack, and if you’re lucky and he never misses, you can reduce Kung Pow Chicken’s health to 0 in 6 attacks. And although Brian will need to heal between attacks, his shorter healing time of 3 hours means you can do 6 attacks in 24 hours. But what’s the sting in the tail, well for the 6 attacks you’re going to need 12 expired coupons and attack day and night, so bang goes a good nights sleep.
And for Billy Blanks, the odds are identical to Yogi Fighter Brian, the 6 attacks can be done due to his shorter healing time of 3 hours, but it’s going cost you 12 expired coupons and some sleep.
So as you can see trying to defeat Kung Pow Giant Chicken with one fighter isn’t a great idea. And why would you want to use only one fighter if you have more available? If you want better odds you need consider a combo of fighters and that’s what we’ll talk about next.
ATTACKING WITH A COMBO OF FIGHTERS
Obviously you increase your chances of defeating Kung Pow Giant Chicken by using more than one fighter in the battles. You can battle with 2 or 3 characters and you’ll see the benefits of these choices below.
Here you can see we’ve chosen Dojo Peter and Johnny Lawrence and for the same fight cost of expired coupons we can send both of them into battle, and you can see although our health is still only a max of 8 as these can’t be combined, the attack power does increase as these can be combined Dojo Peter’s 4 + Johnny Lawrence’s 6 = 10. So we can do more damage in the battle, so you’re odds of defeating Kung Pow Giant Chicken are increasing as you could take down Kung Pow Giant Chicken in 4 attacks if you’re lucky, but you’re going to need to be vigilant of the timer so again you’ll need play day and night. The odds are the same if you use Dojo Peter & Yogi Fighter Brian, or Dojo Peter & Billy Blanks.
Now you’re probably saying there’s a better combo of two fighters if you ditch Dojo Peter and use Johnny Lawrence + Yogi Fighter Brian, or Johnny Lawrence + Billy Banks, or Yogi Fighter Brian + Billy Banks. So why haven’t I used one of those as an example, rather than the above. Well that’s because if you have Yogi Fighter Brian or/and Billy Banks, you’d be daft to use them in a two fighter combo with Johnny Lawrence, when you could simply add one of them in with the combo above to give you the ultimate fighting team, yes a full house of 3 fighters.
And that’s what we’re going look at now, the combo that gives you the best odds for the least expired coupons. And here we have it, the perfect storm of freemium fighters to knockout Kung Pow Giant Chicken with limited attacks, using less expired coupons and saving you losing sleep. As you can see the combined attack power of our combo is 6+4+6=16. So we could defeat Kung Pow Giant Chicken in just 2 attacks as we should hopefully do a minimum of 16 damage or even more if we get a lucky hit.
And there’s the added fun of getting see your three fighters in the arena.
And as you can see we did manage to reduce his health by 16 and picked up some much appreciated round rewards to help with the Golden Dragon.
And here we have the option of healing our fighters for clams and attacking again immediately, or waiting the 7 hours healing time and then sending the same 3 fighters in to finish the job.
And wham bam thank you ma’am Kung Pow Giant Chicken is no more, defeated by our freemium fight club and it’s only needed 4 expired coupons total. But I must admit after all that it’s a little disappointing to only get 24 black belts for your efforts, but that’s the low reward TinyCo has set.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I LOSE?
If you are knocked out and lose all your health then you need to heal your fighter/fighters.
WHAT IS HEALING?
Each time your Character/Characters go into Battle, they will take Damage. Once their health hits 0 in order to be able to use them again they must heal from that back to their full Capacity. Please note your fighter/fighters will not start to heal if they have only lost health, they must be at 0 health.
There are a few ways to Heal your Character/Characters. First tap on any Nerd and then go to the Character Select Screen (tap on +). Here you will see your Character has taken Damage and “HEAL” is showing over them.
You will see above the time to heal a fighter with 8 or more health is 7hrs and below this a button to allow you to heal them immediately either using premium revive potions bought from the store or if you have no revive potions, you will get a message telling you the clam cost to heal your fighter instantly.
However the time to heal fighters with 4 health is only 3 hours.
And this shorter heal time is reflected in a lower clam cost to instantly restore their health through the heal option.
WHAT ARE THE REWARDS?
This will depend on where you are in the game but here is a general idea of Payouts.
24 Black Belts (Always)
Round rewards of 20 Chopsticks, 1 Expired Coupon, 1 Fortune Cookie, 1 Gold & 1 Incense.
