Twelve feet tall, wielding a large wooden club, and one big eye, the Cyclops is the most powerful myth unit of the Classical Age. The Cyclops are giants that can throw human troops off their feet, instantly destroying them and hurting any who get in the way. This guarantees that any group of soldier that attack a cyclops will take casualites and makes the Cyclops an important target in battles. It's best to use heroes or more powerful myth units to take it out. The Cyclops do very good damage against buildings and myth units as well but are somewhat slow. The Cyclops cannot throw heroes, other myth units, or siege weapons.

Giants with one central eye, the Cyclopes were storm gods in early Greek mythology. In some tales they became smiths and worked with Hephaestus on Zeus thunderbolts. In other tales there were only three Cyclopes, representing thunder, lightning, and a thunderbolt. In classical Greece, the "lesser cyclopes" were seen as the sons of Poseidon, bestial and violent, who were avoided and feared. There were also wise and powerful "elder Cyclopes" that were the sons of Kronos.
