Spoiler warning: This article contains information on a Cheat Unit. Please use discretion when viewing this page.
Black Riders are cheat units that can be spawned or created in two different ways. They can be spawned when a Medusa is killed or they can simply replace both the Horse Archer and the Heavy Horse Archer if the cheat code "BLACK RIDER" is summoned. They have the same stats as a Heavy Horse Archer, but have slightly fewer hit points and deal +1 attack (compared to a fully upgraded Heavy Horse Archer). Black Riders start out with 60 hit points, 8 attack, 7 range, 2 pierce armor, and no melee armor. The stats can be upgraded just like any unit trained at the Archery Range. When they die, they become a Catapult, Heavy Catapult, or Big Bertha.
