The Barbarian is a Hero unit in Dungeon Keeper.


"The Barbarian is a very tough and strong character who battles to the death."
Dungeon Keeper Manual

The Barbarian is a very muscular and hulky character who is very poor with magic, but makes an excellent front line combat soldier. Their high stamina can make them tolerate very strong physical blows (even more so once they gain Armour) and can even withstand magical onslaughts for periods of time.

Barbarians are tough, hardy fighters, and good candidates for conversion. They love training and will train automatically, but unlike Demon Spawns and Samurais, they don't become unhappy if they don't have the opportunity to. They can manufacture with moderate skill, however they cannot engage in any kind of research. There is nothing they particularly hate and they have a moderate paycheck. Their only downsides are their inability to perform research and their lack of any spells except Armour at level 6.
