- “Bow Chicka Bow Wow!”
- — Lavernius Tucker
Tucker is the victim of a running gag, where his armor gets coated with a black substance when he goes through the teleporter. Another in The Blood Gulch Chronicles had Tucker never getting a sniper rifle, rendering him ineffective at spying on the Reds; once Tex offered her rifle for the energy sword that Tucker had found, he turned it down, growing attached to the energy blade; however, he does fire a rifle once on Season 5, a very precise shot on Tex's butt (with Church being blamed for the incident and punched in the face). Tucker appears to have excellent sight, because he never gets the sniper rifle. In Season 5, he was able to spot that Sister was a female from halfway across the canyon. A few episodes after Tucker finds the energy sword, he is forcibly impregnated by an Alien before being taken on a quest by him, that makes Tucker discover the sword also serves as a key. Tucker lates gives birth to Junior.
The energy sword, which does not work for anyone but Tucker, has rendered him immune to Wyoming's time manipulation, and enabled to open locks made by an ancient civilization.
After the Blood Gulch Chronicles, Tucker was recruited as an agent and mediator between the aliens and humans. During this time he was reunited with Junior and regained his sword. He makes a brief voice appearance in Reconstruction, calling Freelancer Command and requesting help with his mission in the desert. He officially reappears in Recreation, fending off C.T.'s team single-handedly. He assists Caboose and the Reds for the rest of the season. He is a season regular during Revelation, showing his improved fighting skills. He even is able to stab the Meta with his sword in the final fight of Revelation. Tucker then returns with Caboose, Washington (having taken over Church's armor but with his old armor's yellow trim), and the Reds to Valhalla after they are debriefed by UNSC recovery team.
Throughout the early seasons, Tucker is often portrayed as a pervert bordering on immature, specially due to his 'bow chika wow wow' catchphrase that he is often heard saying when making a dirty joke, reference or that's what she said moment. In later seasons he uses the phrase a lot less, showing his character development over the years.
