Cult Minion (also known as the Cultist) is the final normal enemy of the game, and also one of the 31 playable characters in Castle Crashers. He is unlockable for the PS3, PC, and plus Castle Crashers Remastered by beating the Ice Castle level on Insane Mode, and is available for purchase for $1.99 in the Necromantic Pack DLC on Xbox 360.

Cultist's specialties include combo locking and basic boss slaying.


Cult Minions are primarily seen during the Wizard Castle Interior level, as the player must battle past them to begin the four boss battles. They are also spawned from the Evil Wizard's spider form. He is likely the most difficult character to unlock on the PS3, PC, and Xbox One


Cult Minions help the Evil Wizard by attacking players. They're very powerful and almost completely immune to the four primary magic elements (Fire, Ice, Electricity and Poison), suffering only a single point of damage. They're immune to the additional effects (burn, freeze, stun and poison) of elemental weapons and magic. Cult Minions don't flinch when hit with arrows or elemental magic. If you play through the Final Battle, it seems that the Evil Wizard hatches them from cocoons when he turns into his flying spider form. Cult Minions appear to be clones of the Evil Wizard himself.


Splash Attack

"Dark Pillars"

Element: Dark (aka Non-Elemental)

Max Hits: 1 per upgrade level (Max 7)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5

Dark energy bursts up from the ground in front of you. Each upgrade level adds another burst of darkness in front of the previous ones. It does damage to all enemies based on their defense. At. high levels, it makes short work of most bosses.

Magic Projectile

"Dark Shot"

Element: Dark (aka Non-Elemental)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Shoots a dark projectile that moves faster than normal. The non-immunity follows through with this spell as well. Very effective against bosses and the Evil Wizard's minions.

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

"Pillar of Darkness"

Element: Dark (aka Non-Elemental)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Jumps with a dark magic boost and does damage to overlapped enemies.
