Waylon (Finn in the European version) is a CO of the New Rubinelle Army. He first appears in level six of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. He acts as an ally until the freeing of the Lazurian prisoners. He specializes in aerial units. After his defeat, he is never seen again (in the final battle against Waylon, he announced his intention to retire when it was over and it's assumed that he did).

Waylon is generally known as a coward, only doing what he wants. He does not care for the lives of his men, which greatly annoys Captain Brenner. He also dislikes the Lazurian Army, hunting them and the 12th Battalion down with Admiral Greyfield.


Waylon is self-absorbed and boastful, doing whatever he wants when he wants to. All he cares about is his own pleasure and doesn't care about his injured troops, instead leaving them behind to die. This annoys Captain Brenner greatly. Waylon is constantly annoyed with Will for his "charity work", and boasts to him about him killing Brenner (Even though it was Greyfield who killed him).

Waylon grants +20 attack and +30 defense to zone air units in addition to the default +10/+10 boost.

Flight of the Coward

Attach Waylon to a Battle Copter and go on the offensive. Don't be afraid to put him on the front lines. He can take a hit or two while you charge your meter. Once his meter is full, you can pull back and focus on building additional Battle Copters and Bombers. Because Waylon's COP makes his air units almost untouchable, he can demolish a cluster of Anti-Air and Missile units without taking a point of damage in return. Furthermore, the enemy will have to retreat their anti-air units from the frontline or risk them being destroyed by Waylon's untouched air force next turn. Afterward, you can just deploy tanks to clean up. In the early game, Waylon has trouble dealing with superior ground units such as those of Lin.
