The "Coward" (real name not known) is a boy in Bart's class at Springfield Elementary School. When Bart declares war on Nelson, Coward joins Bart's army.


When Bart first stood up (by himself) to Nelson, and Lisa hailed Bart in the cafeteria as "My brother, the bully-killer!", Coward cheered Bart on, then escaped (along with the rest of the kids) when Nelson came looking for Bart. He joined Bart's army and took part in the training, but the Guard Dog exercise (where the troops ran along a fence with a barking dog on the other side) got to his nerves and he chickened out. Bart slapped Coward to make him shape up, but Grampa slapped Bart and rebuked him, because sergeants aren't supposed to slap soldiers. Grampa ordered Bart to apologize, Coward accepted, and everything was fine. Coward took part in the attack on Nelson and his weasels, and Bart's army won.[1]

When Bart took a picture of Homer dancing with Princess Kashmir and showed it around school, Coward was one of the kids who wanted a copy.[2]
