Clash Royale Cards – Characters and Features
In this article we have compiled Clash Royale cards for you. Here you can find the characteristics and strengths of CR characters.
Clash Royale Troops;
Three fast, moderate-damage single-target near-melee air troops. Unarmored but targeting both ground and air, they can be a high-damage support card or a quick defense against glass cannons. Like in CoC, they’re strong yet cheap air troops, costing just 3 Elixir.
Two low-damage yet medium-ranged single-target troops. Targeting both ground and air, and lightly armored, they are inexpensive support troops or a quick defense against small pushes while costing only 3 Elixir.
A moderate-damage single-target melee troop. Despite only targeting ground, this jack-of-most-trades card can act as a great mini-tank (especially at low levels) and a fair defense against small troops with its moderate-high hitpoints for only 3 Elixir.
Three very fast, low-damage single-target ranged troops. Unarmored and targeting both ground and air, they are excellent against small single-target ground/air pushes like Minions and are dirt-cheap support units costing only 2 Elixir.
Three very fast, moderate damage, single-target melee troops. Unarmored and only targeting ground, they are nevertheless an excellent defense against glass cannons like the Mini P.E.K.K.A., and not to be ignored with a tank or mini-tank. All for only 2 Elixir!
A 3 Elixir high-damage and medium-ranged splash troop. It may only target ground and be barely armored, but it is decent against medium to large swarms and can deal great damage behind a tank for its price.
Three fast, low-damage single-target melee troops. They only target ground and are completely unarmored, but are very useful. They can distract enemies when timed right or just exist to cycle your deck for the dirt-cheap price of 1 Elixir! Value!
Four single-target melee troops with thoroughly average stats. Despite only targeting ground, they are a mighty collective force and can swiftly deal with a great variety of threats for 5 Elixir, but keep them away from powerful splash cards!
Almost double the Minions for only 5 Elixir! This card has ridiculously high DPS, allowing it to defeat tanks and pushes in the blink of an eye. It also gets crushed by aoe damage in the blink of an eye. Keep an eye out, otherwise you may lose everything… in the blink of an eye.
Five single-target melee units that offer good defensive and offensive value despite their very weak stats. Fragile but fast flying units, Bats can attack both ground and air units and can easily deal with solo mini-tanks. At just 2 Elixir, Bats can fortify and cheapen your deck.
3 very fast, near-melee kamikaze splash troops that together deal damage close to a Fireball, for only 2 Elixir! They are an excellent defense against tightly-packed swarms and glass cannons and can be mobile deterrence in a push. However, they’re very fragile so be careful!
A 3 Elixir barrel packed with bones that drifts through the air looking for towers and trouble. With its moderate health it can take quite a beating and when the barrel runs out of balloons, it explodes and drops seven sword-swinging Skeletons ready to party!
Six fairly tough melee ground troops spread out in a horizontal formation across the arena. With the addition of a shield to absorb otherwise devastating strikes, they can distract and repel most enemies and act as a capable shield for other units across both lanes, though for a hefty 7 Elixir so use them wisely.
An infamous, hulking beast of a man. Costs 6 Elixir and deals good single-target damage to buildings. High in health with somewhat good range, his powerful cannonballs plough through any building he decides to shoot.
This fast, 1 Elixir kamikaze snowball has excellent defensive and offensive capabilities due to its freeze, which can reset channeled abilities, force enemies to retarget, or even freeze the opposition as potent support in a push.
A 5 Elixir value pack of a trio of trouble, with one boy and two girls. The boy absorbs damage from the front with high hitpoints and melee attacks, while the high damage but low health girls fire from behind! With a strong tank and high damage, this card is a complete combo push by itself.
Five fast though weak Goblins for 3 Elixir. Three have knives for powerful ground melee combat deployed in front, and two have spears for ranged attacks on both ground and air at the rear. Together, they can clear a multitude of units, but be wary of splash cards when deploying this Goblin Value Pack!
A pair of über-strong troops for 6 Elixir, notorious for their sheer speed and melee power. Together, they can deal unbelievable damage to anything, though they are weak against large swarms. One can never be too paranoid when these units are deployed.
The classic glass cannon — a mighty punch is packed inside this moderate health, 4 Elixir robotic warrior. He’s a fast single-targeting troop who can delete the majority of support troops or devastate tanks and towers alike with only a few strikes, but is weak against swarms.
A consistent 4 Elixir single-target shot attacking both air and ground with fairly average stats — she is a reliable support or defense unit with enough damage to take out small tanks but enough speed to quickly handle small swarms.
The “original tank”, the Giant is a 5 Elixir meat shield with high health and moderate melee damage. He ignores all enemy troops and slowly makes his way towards buildings, soaking up damage to protect any troops behind him. Once he gets there, he’ll start breaking it!
A reliable card against towers, often getting one hit or more and zooming past troops with his moderate-high health and blazing fast speed — for 4 Elixir, the Hog Rider deals great deal damage. Also, his hog will jump over the river! However, good building placement easily draw him away, and he is helpless against swarms.
A 4 Elixir powerhouse with high health. She swings into a 360º attack to take out swarms and support troops alike and is a strong mini-tank. Despite this, she can’t reach air troops and her slow movement speed leaves her susceptible to ranged attacks.
A fast but fragile 4 Elixir surprise to smash into buildings and disrupt the defense. Once it gets charging, it must be taken out before it rams into a tower, or the target will take double damage! Two Barbarians also pop out after the ram is destroyed or crashed, meaning this card is reliable for both defense and offense.
A 3 Elixir flying glass cannon. Has slightly less damage than three Minions combined, but its moderate-high health which gives it high resistance to attacks makes it a strong force against towers and medium-health units. Its only weakness? Swarms, ranged units, and cupcakes.
For 5 Elixir he blasts foes on the ground and in the air with heavy-hitting fireballs that deal splash damage. He only has moderate health so protect him to maximize his damage potential. The Wizard excels against groups of enemies, not so much against tanks, and fireball.
A 4 Elixir flying card with moderately-low hitpoints. Its long range and moderate damage allow it to attack from afar, often out-ranging its target, making it a great support card. Although fairly weak, it can easily deal with minor swarms and can rack up damage when left ignored.
Three independent, very powerful markswomen with high damage, moderate hitpoints and long range. They can stop almost anything with their powerful guns, from solo tanks to moderate swarms. But watch out: they’re very expensive at 10 Elixir and really vulnerable to spells!
A cheap yet versatile mini-tank, the Ice Golem provides a wide range of uses for only 2 Elixir. It’s slow enough for a non-committal opening in the back, useful for kiting & distracting, flexible in a push, and deals slowing death damage that can destroy low-health enemy units.
A 3 Elixir card with a fast fire rate, long range, and high speed, making him a great unit for sniping buildings on enemy territory or rush attacks. Despite this, he does have very low hitpoints so be sure to protect him from high damage troops, which can defeat him in one shot.
For 5 Elixir, you get four moderate health, low damage troops that rush the enemy tower, jumping over rivers if they have to. Be warned, their speed and numbers make them difficult to stop, although area damaging units or spells can take them out easily. Which still leaves one question unanswered… who let the hogs out?
If it moves, then it won’t for much longer. This 4 Elixir trio of menaces will stun a target until it is destroyed, making them exceptionally effective on defense or as support. However, be sure to protect them against swarms and splash damage due to their slow hit speed and moderately-low hitpoints.
With very high damage and good hitpoints for 5 Elixir, the Prince is powerful on offense. His charge ability gives him extra speed and allows him to deal double damage to a target when he crashes, allowing him to devastate targets or speed up slow units. But he’s helpless against swarms.
A 4 Elixir troop with moderately high hitpoints and fast movement speed that deals low splash damage making it effective as a support troop, killing swarms while chipping at ground troops and towers. It’s also a decent mini-tank, but weak against high damage units and is easily distracted.
Fifteen skeletons for just 3 Elixir — this massive swarm can overwhelm single-target enemy units in the blink of an eye! However, with their very low hitpoints, they can be easily taken out by area damage or even several ranged units, so they’re best used on defense with caution.
While her health and splash damage appear mediocre for 5 Elixir, she summons 3 Skeletons every 5 seconds to help distract & destroy, making her useful for defense and support. Despite this, she’s vulnerable to other splash-damage dealers that easily crush her Skeletons, leaving her defenseless.
For 4 Elixir, this mustachioed man with a double-gun has moderate health and can shoot a wave of bullets. This shotgun blast has a unique degree of versatility. Up close, he busts tanks, but from afar, he can shred swarms – ground and air! Be careful, though – if he’s far away from a tank or too close to a swarm, it’s a lost cause.
This oversized skeleton costs 6 Elixir, gets distracted by everything, and deals relatively low damage per punch. But he makes up with his bomb that deals extremely high damage three seconds after his death, obliterating towers or enemy troops in its radius. A little bonus is he is also slightly faster than many tanks.
Having decent hitpoints and extremely high damage per strike, while only targeting buildings, the Balloon packs a heavy threat on offense although it isn’t fast — one strike could potentially mean defeat. For 5 Elixir, it brings death from above and can even blow up support with its death damage.
Not only are his massive hitpoints the highest of any unit, he deals great damage and only targets buildings. Upon death, he explodes, splitting into 2 Golemites (much weaker tanks) while dealing instant death damage to everything near him. Although he costs a hefty 8 Elixir, the Golem is a phenomenal tank.
This mighty robot has extremely high damage and hitpoints but is very slow and easy to distract with swarms, often requiring splash support. For 7 Elixir and her very high stats, she’s very reliable for defense & tanking, and can devastate towers — but only if she can get there!
A 5 Elixir cannon on wheels with moderate hitpoints, damage, and shield points in addition to hitpoints. Moves fast, can survive a Fireball, and when destroyed, becomes a building to distract those pesky Hog Riders and Giants! However, it is vulnerable to swarms.
For 4 Elixir, he has moderately high hitpoints, plus a shield to absorb any hit. When attacking, he has an ordinary melee splash that hits in front, and like his cousin, a charge attack that hits everything around him 360-degree with double damage. He is flexible for both defense and counter-attacks, but is vulnerable to high damage.
Surround enemies with this armored pile of bones — 3 Elixir guards with shields that make them incredibly resistant to spells! The worst a Rocket can do is knock their shields off, making them a useful choice for defending most ground troops. Only their low damage holds them back. Their spears are longer than most other melees, by the way.
This menacing ogre with high hitpoints throws boulders that go through ground units! For 5 Elixir, he can crush and knock back glass cannons, like a Fireball, and can survive even a Rocket. Despite all this, he does have quite a slow attack rate, so he must be supported well.
Not all Goblins are weak! Costing 6 Elixir, this giant packs good hitpoints and a decent punch as he walks straight to the tower. And he doesn’t come alone: two Spear Goblins are on his back as an untouchable support, and after his demise, his spear-throwing friends will keep fighting.
How shocking! This dragon attacks slowly and does low damage per hit for 5 elixir, but there’s more. His attacks will chain on to two secondary targets, gaining value with each unit hit. As if that wasn’t enough, he stuns on hit, making him a powerful disruptor. However, alone, he’s weak to tanks, glass cannons, and large swarms alike. Take caution.
For 5 Elixir, he provides insane value with moderately high hitpoints and a boomerang ax that damages everything, even air units, in its path for 8 tiles — twice! He can obliterate tightly packed units and deal decent damage, but can still be surrounded due to his slow attack rate.
Hailing from CoC, it’s not the Bomber, it’s the Wall Breakers! For 3 Elixir, the two wall breakers run straight at the nearest building and cause damage with their barrels of gun power, which explode on impact with a tower. They are excellent support cards and are one of the best cards to Clone in the game.
This underground mini-tank is always a surprise to the opponent! For 3 Elixir, he has a lot to offer: moderate hitpoints, damage and the ability to go anywhere in the Arena! He can be a quick mini-tank for smaller troops or easily sabotage enemy buildings, but watch out for swarms, as he can’t do much against them.
A majestic flying beast that targets buildings with very high hitpoints but low damage. When defeated, it splits into 6 spread-out Lava Pups that can easily overwhelm, each dealing the same damage but with moderately low health. However, this tank is slow and expensive at 7 Elixir, and must be well-supported.
The sister of the Witch, she has moderate hitpoints, moderately-high melee single-target damage and the ability to spawn flying Bats — including two more upon death for only 4 Elixir! She can quickly swarm units and towers with her Bats, but is defenseless against splash damage.
For 4 Elixir, this dragon has moderately high health and high damage. With his infernal blast, he can make crisps out of tanks and towers alike, and can even survive a Lightning! But beware of swarms and stunning electrickery, as he is shockingly hopeless against them.
A vengeful spirit is haunting the Arena! For 3 Elixir, he has moderate hitpoints & area damage and can become invisible. He strikes enemies and towers before they even see him and clears swarms with ease. However, he has a slow attack speed, leaving him susceptible to other mini-tanks.
Royalty steps into the Arena! For 3 Elixir, she sets anything on fire with her moderate hitpoints, area damage, and very long range! She easily defeats any swarm, and can outrange buildings with flair! However, she is fragile and slow to attack — her dreams are easily crushed (along with herself).
A powerful glass cannon for 4 Elixir, the Lumberjack provides high damage and speed with moderate hitpoints. He shreds tanks, towers, and even small swarms with his extremely fast attack speed and high damage, making him formidable whether on defense or offense. He also drops a bottle of Rage when he falls, boosting any friendly units nearby!
Ice Wizard Card
Everybody chill… This wizard has moderate hitpoints and deals low area damage that slows units for 3 Elixir. It may not seem like much, but he can stop enemies in their tracks, making him an invaluable support troop although a slow attack rate and low damage make him ineffective alone.
Dashing from one unit to the other, quickly annihilating them, the Bandit is a formidable foe for 3 Elixir. When she dashes, nothing can touch her, making her great for quick & damaging attacks. However, her moderate hitpoints leave her vulnerable to swarms or high damage units.
Magic Archer Card
The master of all Archers! For 4 Elixir, he has moderate health, damage and the ability to send his arrow even further than his targeting range. He can safely pierce buildings from afar, as well as multiple targets within the arrow’s linear path, and can easily clear swarms. However, tougher troops and the Fireball will easily destroy him.
Mega Knight Card
He lands with a BOOM, dealing massive area damage to everybody around him, then jumps to the next target in range, landing with another BOOM! If he’s not jumping, he’ll smack, with powerful melee splash damage! He has very high hitpoints for 7 Elixir, but can still be defeated by high damage units due to his slow attack.
Ram Rider Card
She lands into the arena on her trusty ram, dashing to the nearest building while the rider snares and damages any nearby troops. The ram deals massive damage when it collides with the tower. Like the Hog Rider, the ram is able to jump over the river, all for 5 Elixir. Nothing will stop this inseparable duo!
Electro Wizard Card
POW! For just 4 Elixir, he lands with a free Zap and continues to Zap (and reset) two opponents at once or deal double damage to a single foe, making him a stunning support troop anywhere. He has moderate health, and is easily defeated by swarms and high health tanks.
Wait… where did my entire push go? For 6 Elixir, Sparky is a powerful machine with moderately high hitpoints that nukes a small area every 4 seconds, making her a juggernaut on both defense and offense. However, her very slow attack rate allows her to be easily surrounded or distracted. Also, somehow this electricity-using machine de-charges when stunned by electricity.
Clash Royale Spells;
Blot out the sky with a 3 Elixir rain of Arrows. Its moderate damage and very large radius makes clearing swarms and weak enemies a breeze, but is lackluster against higher health units like the Knight.
2 Elixir, instant effect and stuns. What’s not to like? The Zap is often the lifeline against swarms, with immediate low damage that can cripple or destroy small troops. Force enemies to re-target, reset attacks or use that slight extra damage to finish things off.
Is a push too hot to handle? A giant, 2 Elixir Snowball will make them slow down for 2 seconds and chill out. As a side note, squishier troops tend to go splat while all but the heaviest of troops get knocked back. The Giant Snowball excels as a cheap, versatile disrupter.
Rock the ground for 3 Elixir, perfect for clearing small swarms, slowing units down, and does HUGE damage to buildings! However, it doesn’t damage flying units (it is an EARTHquake, after all).
Aaaanndd… Fireball! A fiery rock pummels the Arena and anything else in its small radius dealing significant damage to all enemy troops and buildings, air or ground, for 4 Elixir. It can even knock back some ground troops! It easily destroys low hitpoint troops and cripples medium hitpoint units.
For a hefty 6 Elixir you can destroy a push, a building, or … your Elixir. The ridiculously high damage comes with a ridiculously small area of effect so be sure not to miss. Recommended targets include support troops, expensive buildings, and Crown Towers — bingo if you hit all three!
Keep troops going with just a 1 Elixir boost! This spell keeps troops’ hitpoints topped up to live through anything… unless they get defeated in one shot or just too quickly… which is usually the case… Also, this spell does not affect buildings, so don’t try to heal your Crown Towers.
3 Goblins for 3 Elixir that can be spawned anywhere in the Arena — perfect for a surprise attack! If left ignored, it can deal heavy damage to towers for an unparalleled low cost, but these Goblins are easily countered by swarms or spells and are relatively slow to begin attacking.
An angry Barbarian in a barrel rolls a moderate distance, dealing moderate damage to troops and buildings, then breaks open and goes to town with his sword. Despite falling short of reaching the Crown Towers, for 2 Elixir this card can protect, attack, and distract all at the same time.
For 6 Elixir, Lightning strikes the three units with the highest hitpoints in a large area, either crippling or completely annihilating them. As a bonus, there’s an extra half-second stun at the end! It’s great when taking out support units in a huge push, but is utterly worthless against small units and swarms.
A 4 Elixir area-denial spell that maintains a powerful presence. It is capable of disrupting defenses, crippling pushes, and preventing supports being played by destroying any swarms and many glass cannons that pass through an area in a matter of seconds – but only if they stay inside it!
Freeze! This 4 Elixir spell incapacitates and damages troops and buildings for 4 seconds. It can catch players off guard and can often clutch a victory. Or use it as a last second defense by freezing enemy troops that is just about to reach your tower.But it can cause your opponent to create a bigger push to crush you.
Get over here, enemy troops, so this Rocket can hit you all! This windy Tornado pulls any troops in its large effective radius, grouping them all up for a few seconds (perfect for any incoming splash damage) while also slightly damaging them for only 3 Elixir! When used correctly, this spell can be invaluable. Also useful for dragging that pesky Hog Rider to open your King Tower.
Pump up your troops with a 2 Elixir boost! Increases the attack speed and movement speed of all units in its large effective radius, greatly multiplying their strength and creating savage beasts that can take out towers in seconds. However, when used in the wrong place or time, it can just be a waste of Elixir.
The Clone is an incredibly volatile spell that clones every troop within its radius. For only 3 Elixir, it doubles the damage and can overwhelm opponents as Clones still retain the abilities of their normal counterparts. Despite this, each cloned troop only has 1 hitpoint, so beware of area damage!
This Mirror’s magic allows one to replay the last card deployed for one more Elixir, but with a higher level (depending on the level of the Mirror). It can be used to double up attacks for high reward, but results in a huge Elixir disadvantage if not used well. Mirror will not appear in your starting cards.
This portable 5 Elixir swarm brings the party anywhere in the Arena! With its timed release of an entire Skeleton Army and a few more, the Graveyard can easily overrun towers if not countered with small units or area damage, and can also act as a last-second distraction late in the game.
It rolls. It crushes. It knocks back. It’s none other than The Log. A spiked log rolls across the Arena floor, dealing moderate damage and knocking back every enemy ground unit in its path for just 2 Elixir! Recommended targets include the Princess, low health support troops, and every ground swarm. But it can’t hit air units, so don’t log Minion Horde!
Clash Royale Buildings
For 3 Elixir, it has moderate hitpoints, damage, and one of the shortest building lifetimes out of all the buildings. Doesn’t seem like much, does it? Well, when you see that Hog Rider being pulled towards the Cannon into his death for just 3 Elixir, you’d better think again.
It’s quite hard to stop these explosive shells from hitting a tower and dealing quite a bit of damage thanks to its dead zone, where it ignores any enemy troop that gets too close. The ability to snipe towers, its moderate hitpoints, and the light cost of 4 Elixir make this building very versatile, if slow.
Peek-a-boo! I zap you! For 4 Elixir, it has moderate health and damage; can defeat Hog Riders and Balloons alone; and can take care of small swarms. When nobody is there, it hides underground, preventing any damage. However, tanks and large swarms can destroy this building.
Here come the Spear Goblins! Every 4.7 seconds a Spear Goblin will spawn and chip some damage off the enemy’s towers in this 5 Elixir ancient looking building, creating a passive Elixir advantage all the while. They can easily build up behind a tank to cause even more damage to towers, but are still weak to splash damage.
A cheap spawner with moderate hitpoints at the cost of only 3 Elixir that spawns Skeletons every few seconds. When destroyed, 3 more spooky scary Skeletons pop up to avenge the destroyer. The spawned Skeletons can easily distract and take out single-target units, making this building very versatile.
This crude but high-hitpoint wooden building spawns a pair of Barbarians every 14 seconds, who deal quite a bit of damage when ignored. These Barbarians can be valuable as support, granting a significant Elixir advantage. Despite this, the building is expensive (7 Elixir) and the spawned Barbarians can be easily taken out.
Things get really hot with this building. For 5 Elixir, this incinerator will roast even massive tanks and powerful support units in an instant for a positive elixir trade. However, beware of swarms and the power of electrickery, as this building will be overwhelmed and paralyzed.
Where do these Fire Spirits come from? This 4 Elixir magic oven has moderate health and the ability to spawn waves of Fire Spirits, efficiently countering swarms and other troops, and it can also put the opponent under pressure offensively! However, beware of spells and splash damage, as they will put out the ongoing fire!
You gotta spend Elixir to make Elixir! For 6 Elixir, this passive building has moderate health along with the ability to produce bonus Elixir. This will make large pushes much easier to play, although this building comes with significant risk due to its vulnerability to spells and high cost. Elixir Collector will not appear in your starting cards.
Bombs away! This ground-only building throws bombs dealing moderate splash damage at a decent rate, making it perfect against swarms. Combined with its medium hitpoints, its cost of 4 Elixir,and Death Damage, this building is one of the most effective against ground units in the game.
This 6 Elixir automatic crossbow has moderate hitpoints, low damage, a long range and a very fast hitspeed. It can quickly whittle down small swarms and moderate-health troops, cripple tanks, and destroy towers. However, it can be very easily distracted, and is easily destroyed by spells and swarms.
