Role in Invader Zim

Rarl Kove speaking to Red.

He made his only appearance in episode "Battle of the Planets", and had only one line. It's uncertain what he said, as he was whispering to the Almighty Tallest at the time (however, it sounded like, "It is Invader Skoodge, sir.").

He is the only Advisor to appear in the series. Unlike most Irkens, he doesn't wear gloves. His name is an obvious reference to Karl Rove, former Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to former President George W. Bush.

Along with President Man, this is the second character in the series to reference George Bush. Rarl Kove is of above average height for an Irken, and is one of the few Irkens to have green eyes.
