Brave Cookie is a C-grade cookie that is the starting cookie every novice player gets for free. This cookie has been made into the game icon seen when players are downloading the application from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
Despite the skill effect showing an "increase" as Level 1 "Brave" gradually changes into the superlative form of "Bravest of All", there are no special effects for this cookie at any Level - unlike other cookies. Leveling up the cookie will still give it additional energy, even though the skill does not increase.
With no skill attached, this cookie proved to be a challenge for skilled players alike to see how long they go and how much points they can earn with this cookie.
Most Cookie names in Japanese end with クッキー (Cookie) much like their English counterparts. However, Brave Cookie's name is one of the exceptions. His name is 勇敢なクッキー君, where 君 (~kun) is a suffix added to refer to those of junior status, especially male children or teenagers. The other exception is Bright Cookie.
This is the only cookie without special abilities (even XP and coin increase!).
In Ovenbreak, he had a brother named Dozer (even called as KK in the sound files) after running from the Witch was blacked out by a Lollipop (and probably eaten by The Witch before); after that Brave Cookie (aka.Ginger Brave) wanted to avenge for his brother escaping the Witch's oven together with the other Cookies/Gingerbreads.
