Gunhaver on patrol

Charles Gunhaver is the erstwhile leader of the Cheat Commandos. Among his mission credits are leading an action figure storage vehicle attack on Blue Laser, leading a search party to uncover Blue Laser's secret desert headquarters, and staving off the danger of Blue Laser saving money at Price Style. Certain parts of the cartoon Let us give TANKS! strongly suggest that the rest of the Cheat Commandos regard Gunhaver as possibly too enthusiastic about his duties. A running gag surrounding him is people will usually flub his name. His first name, Charles, was revealed by Blue Laser commander in Let us give TANKS!.

He is usually seen wearing a brown fur-lined coat, a cowboy hat, and sunglasses. As suggested by his name (pronounced as "Gun Have-er") and action figure box, Gunhaver has a semi-automatic pistol. The gun was seen hanging on the wall and labeled by Reynold in Shopping For Danger. Gunhaver was actually shown brandishing it (to the astonishment of Blue Laser Commander) in "Let us give TANKS!". Gunhaver was the leader of the Cheat Commandos until he was relieved of his command by Flashfight in Cheat Commandos: Two Part Episode: Part 1. He then went to work for Jaded Teen Pizza with Silent Rip and Crackotage under the management of Reynold's brother, but the three quit and went to run their own restaurant, Kitchen Commandos, which closed after three months. Part 2 concludes with Gunhaver's leadership position reinstated.

Gunhaver is voiced by Crack Stuntman, who has difficulty remembering his character's name, calling him such names as "Gun-hay-ver" and "the gun-shaver". According to The Next Epi-Snowed, Crack Stuntman often attempts to change his character's lines and introduce odd and self-serving turns into the story. For example, Gunhaver's (and the Cheat Commandos') catch phrase is "Rock rock on!", but in An Important Rap Song, Gunhaver says it is now "Riggidy roll!". After growing tired of Stuntman's demands, A. Chimendez sent Gunhaver on "a secret mission to the moon for an undisclosed period of time" and "when he gets back his voice might have changed". Pistols for Pandas revealed that Crack Stuntman continued to voice Gunhaver.

In addition to Cheat Commandos toons, Gunhaver has appeared in an Easter egg in Teen Girl Squad Issue 7 and as a puppet in Dangeresque Puppet Squad: The Hot Jones Hijack.

Gunhaver is a parody of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero characters Duke (leadership role) and General Hawk ("Stylin' Coat" and "Cool Shades" from the Sunbow and DiC cartoons, respectively).

Gunhaver is included in the Cheat Commandos figurine set, albeit with a note that he "does NOT have gun".

In 8-Bit is Enough, it's revealed that Gunhaver is Strong Bad's favorite Cheat Commando.
