- For the Myth Unit in Age of Mythology, see Medusa (Age of Mythology).
A Medusa is a Villager-like unit available in the original Age of Empires. It qualifies as a cheat unit and is also available in the scenario editor as well as the campaign mode of the game. To activate the cheat code, press ENTER and type in "medusa". All villagers on the field of play that belong to you turn into medusa. Villagers you convert after the activation, however, remain villagers.
Medusa do not benefit from Jihad. When it dies, a Medusa turns into a Black Rider. When the black rider dies, it turns into a Catapult, Heavy Catapult or Big Bertha. When that unit is killed, it is gone for good.
