Brute is an enemy and also one of the 31 Playable Characters in the game Castle Crashers. His magical attacks are Non-Elemental and his starting weapon is the Dual Prong Sword.

Brute's specialties include advanced boss slaying, knockback crowd control, basic juggling, and combo locking.

Background Edit

The player(s) first encounter Brute as a Beefy grouped up with 2 Fencers and has Cardinal as his pet in Industrial Castle. Then, a couple of Brutes are resurrected as Skeletons by the Necromancer when the Necromancer is first introduced in Lava World. Finally, a Beefy Brute is resurrected again by the Necromancer in Wizard Castle Interior.

It is assumed that the sole Brute in Industrial Castle serves the Industrial Prince as he works with Fencers to fend off the player(s).

Magic Edit

Splash Attack

"Thorny Vines"

Element: Non-Elemental

Max Hits: 1 upgrade per level (max 7)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5

Thorny vines pop out of the ground in front of you, doing one hit each. Each vine segment adds an extra hit, up to 7 hits. Every other segment is a smaller one that adds no range, but all segments add an extra hit. This is very good against bosses as it has significantly more hits on them; it also is good for aligning on targets that take chain damage like a beefy, and it is very quick.

Magic Projectile


Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Throws an acorn as a projectile.

Elemental Infusion

"Armor Pierce"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage^2 + Base Melee Damage^2

Use Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. This attack pierces armor, and it deals two times normal damage. That means it deals as much damage to a Barbarian or Thief on Normal Mode as it does to a Stove Face or Cult Minion on Insane Mode.

Magic Jump

"Vine Jump"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Leaps up using a vine that damages overlapped enemies and has a whip sound.
