The King's Arena is the first arena in the game Castle Crashers. It is populated by the Barbarian enemy.


This arena featured giant cats on both sides of the arena which swipe at players who get too close. It is, however, possible to hug the screen on the top or bottom and get away without getting hit. A good strategy is to hug the bottom right wall and just shield against attacks and use 360 RT.png + 360 Y.png magic on incoming Barbarians. This makes the arena much easier. Successfully completing all ten waves of enemies in the King's Arena during a Solo Story game will unlock the Barbarian as a playable character.

Co-Op Version

During a 2, 3, or 4 player PVP match here, a horse will appear in the arena for a player to ride.


  • The Barbarians found on this level have increased weight. Therefore, the lightweight juggle is a bit harder to do on them.
  • A single player has to go up against a total of 55 Barbarians to complete the arena.


The race around the world (Edit)
