Peasant's specialties include combo locking and basic juggling.
Peasants first appear playing instruments in Barracks where the player dances until being interrupted by the slain Gray Knight in the opening sequence. Outside the castle, a couple of Peasants are seen running away from Barbarians on the Home Castle level. Next, it is assumed that the Skeletons in Lava World are resurrected Peasants that Necromancer summoned to attack the player. Later on, a couple of Peasants are seen near The Sailor and Traveling Salesman at the Dock. On the Pirate Ship level, a Peasant is seen up in the crows nest using a Telescope, the same exact one that the player previously acquired from the Industrial Castle. On the Marsh level, multiple Peasants are seen dead while the remaining ones fight alongside the player after they've seen the player's courage in battle against Skeletons and Snakeys. Afterwards, a Peasant and a Civilian will watch the player fight the Corn Boss on the next level (note: you can get the peasant and civilian into the fight by standing beside them and waiting for the corn boss to pop up). Finally, after the player has killed the Evil Wizard in the Final Battle and sat through the end credits, some Peasants are seen playing instruments in the Barracks again.
Peasants seemingly respect King with loyalty, as they help the player(s) out in battle.
Peasant's respective "Arrow Rain" Splash Attack and "Dagger" Magic Projectile and Air Projectile make him a member of the fan nicknamed "Arrow Rainers". Bland and common characters that show off nothing special at all. These are considered to be the gold standard for Castle Crashers, as they are painfully below average and are not unique, unlike the characters below them. These are the aforementioned Peasant, Thief, Stove Face, Civilian, and Open-Faced Gray Knight.
Below average character because of their splash being delayed enemies can often just slip through without getting hit. It's bad in almost every situation you use it in. The only notable use is stunning beefies in order to start juggles.
One of the worst characters for arena because of their splash being delayed it barely hits opponents, and isn’t reliable for resets.
- The chicken in Peasant's character portrait bears a resemblance to The Behemoth's logo, the creators of Castle Crashers.
- Peasant is the only character in the entire game that holds an animal in his character portrait.
- Charred remains of Peasants and Civilians can be seen in Lava World.
- It is assumed that Peasants are resurrected as Skeletons by the Necromancer in Lava World and Marsh, respectively.
- It is also assumed that enemy Skeletons at the beginning of Marsh are undead Peasants.
- Peasant is the only Arena unlocked character that is never fought; Snakeys are fought in the Peasant Arena instead.
- A dead Peasant scavenged from Cardinal in Marsh has a Fishing Rod.
- NPC Peasants use multiple weapons: Fishing Rod, Pitchfork, and Skinny Sword.
- The Peasants in Marsh can die, whether to Skeletons or Snakeys in either Mode.
- On the Corn Boss level, a Peasant and a Civilian will stand still during the fight unless the player(s) lure(s) the Corn Boss to directly burrow onto the NPCs, in which they retaliate by attacking regularly and now pair with the player(s) to take out the boss or if the Corn Boss' whip attack is in range of striking both the Peasant and the Civilian, in which they, again, counteract by attacking the boss and sticking close with the player(s).
- Peasant, along with Civilian, are the only NPCs in the entire game that help out the player(s) in fighting a boss, but that's only if they're hit by said boss.
- Peasant, along with Civilian, and Conehead Groom, are the only characters in the entire game that use musical instruments. In this case, in Home Castle and Final Battle.
