Peasant is one of the 31 Playable Characters in the game Castle Crashers. Their magical attacks are Non-Elemental and his starting weapon is the Wooden Spoon.

Peasant's specialties include basic combo locking.

Information Edit

Background Edit

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 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. 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.

Involvement Edit

Peasants seemingly respect King with loyalty, as they help the player(s) out in battle.

Unlock Method Edit

Magic Edit

Splash Attack

"Arrow Rain"

Element: Non-Elemental

Max Hits: 1 upgrade per level (max 7)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5

Arrows rain down from the sky in front of the character in groups of three. Each upgrade adds another set of three arrows, but each set of arrows can only hit the same enemy once per set. If maxed out and spammed, the Splash can stay out for a while, hitting any enemy that comes towards it. A total of 8 characters (including Peasant) share the same exact Splash Attack.

Magic Projectile

"Dagger Toss"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Throws a dagger as a projectile. Snakey, Civilian, and Open-Faced Gray Knight share the same looking dagger.

Air Projectile

"Dagger Toss"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Hits: {{{Hits}}}

Throws a dagger as a projectile. Snakey, Civilian, and Open-Faced Gray Knight share the same looking dagger. An advanced use of Juggling, named Spellweaving, can use this Air Projectile for flashy techniques.

Elemental Infusion

"Armor Pierce"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage^2 + Base Melee Damage^2

Use Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. This attack pierces armor, and it deals two times normal damage. That means it deals as much damage to a Barbarian or a Thief on Normal Mode as it does to a Stove Face or a Cult Minion on Insane Mode.
