Sarge is a World War II Veteran who works at a Surplus store in Cars video games.
Cars: The Video GameEdit
In story mode, Sarge helps train Lightning to be a better off-road racer by making him run through three different obstacle courses as quick as he can. Shortly after, Sarge challenges him to a race, titled Sarge's Off Road Challenge.
Although Sarge is not playable in arcade mode, he can often be seen as an opponent during races. He was playable in the PSP version, though.
Cars: Mater-National Championship Edit
Sarge appears in Fillmore's Nature Preserve, Ornament Valley Airport, and Team Relay 2, all of which he is the fastest car. He now is playable in arcade mode, but does not have any alternate paint jobs.
Cars: Race-O-Rama Edit
Sarge is a minor playable character.
Cars 2: The Video GameEdit
Sarge is once again a playable character, his weight class is medium. He also has an alt called "Camo Sarge".
Cars: Fast as LightningEdit
In this game, Sarge is a non-playable character who gives the player daily challenges like winning races, doing tricks, or collecting XP stars and coins in races.
Cars 3: Driven to Win Edit
Sarge is again an unplayable character who can be seen watching in the background beside Fillmore in some of the Radiator Springs races.Swartz27 later confirmed his role as "Main Storyline Character", which could mean he will be the main character instead of Lightning, but this isn't known for sure. they also plan to rename him "Sargeant", a portmanteau between "Sarge" and "Sergeant".
Sarge is brown with a fully convertible body, a spare tire, and a Sergeant Major insignia on his doors. He also has the number "984673" written along his hood. His license plate is very rarely present, it reads 41WW2, in reference to World War II, and the year 1941, when the United States joined following an attack by the Japanese on their Pearl Harbor military base in Hawaii.
Sarge is the opposite of Fillmore, willing to fight at any time and tending to boss Lightning around and refer to him as "Private McQueen". Many quotes show him referring his races being wars.
In the first two games, Sarge has been the fastest car in every story mode appearance, with him, Koji, and Giovanni being the only three cars who are always the fastest car in the second game. However, in the next installment, he is the slowest car in every story appearance (except Smash Up 1, where only Zeke outspeeds him, and Match Up, where only El Machismo outspeeds him), and in Cars 2: The Video Game, he always tends to be slower when he appears in arcade mode.
- In Cars: Race-O-Rama, although he competes in all 4 Smash Up races and is playable in Road Races, he can't be played as in Smash Ups, this also previously applied with Emma in Cars: Mater-National Championship.
- According to certain concept art in Cars: Mater-National Championship, Sarge was supposed to have an alternate paint job that was lighter brown with various "Rock" stars, but for unknown reasons, it was never even created, as it cannot be found in the game's coding.
- On the back of the box of the Xbox 360 version of Cars: The Video Game, Sarge appears in a picture where it says "Race as 10+ Characters!", but Sarge is not a playable character.
- In every game, it is listed on the screen before the title screen where the third-party licensing is shown that Sarge's rank insignia had to be approved by the US Army. This is the only case of a detail other than a make model and it's logo needing licensing.
- Sarge has the highest number in the franchise. He also is the only car to have a number with more than three digits.
