Barbarian is one of the 31 Playable Characters in the game Castle Crashers. His magical attacks are Non-Elemental and his starting weapon is the Barbarian Axe.

Barbarian's specialties include basic crowd control, basic juggling, and combo locking.


Background Edit

The Barbarians are the ones that attack the Home Castle, and kidnap the four princesses at the beginning of the game. They have been fighting in a war with the Home Kingdom for some time, and it is the player's duty to turn the war in favor of the King and his soldiers. They are completely loyal to the Barbarian Boss. In Forest Entrance, you can see Barbarians and Thieves trading the 3 remaining kidnapped princesses for Gold with the Industrial Prince. Barbarians don't reappear until much later when they're resurrected by the Necromancer twice in Wizard Castle Interior. Also, as an enemy, he wields the Barbarian Ax, Club, or Black Morning Star.
