Fencer is an enemy and also one of 31 Playable Characters in the game Castle Crashers. His magical attacks are Non-Elemental and his starting weapon is Fencer's Foil.

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

Background and Involvement

Fencers are first seen carrying Orange Princess for the Industrial Prince, as he's offered a deal with a Beefy Thief for taking said princess for his keeping. Next, multiple Fencers are seen paired up with Industrialists and a Beefy Brute that are all defending the Industrial Prince from the player(s) in the Industrial Castle level. Finally, Fencers are resurrected by the Necromancer in the Necromancer's Room in the Wizard Castle Interior level.

Fencers are loyal to the Industrial Prince, as they are the bulk of his army and defend him from the invading player(s).

Magic

Splash Attack

"Saw Trap"

Element: Non-Elemental

Max Hits: 4 per upgrade level (max 28)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.4 

A large buzzsaw blade moves across the ground. Each upgrade adds an extra buzzsaw, up to 7 total. Unlike other Splash spells, the first version has full range, and each upgrade adds an extra blade but not extra distance. Each blade can do 4 hits on enemies that aren't knocked over, unlike the typical Splash spell that does 1 hit per upgrade level.

Each buzzsaw spawns at a random size and distance from you, and some may start slightly behind you and not go as far. At max upgrade, this means the spell can protect you from both sides somewhat. The buzzsaws also take a while to finish after the casting animation is complete, so you can move away just after casting it while the buzzsaws continue to deal damage from where you were before.

Buzzsaws completely ignore all terrain including pits, slopes, walls, and the line in the volleyball game. This is another feature unique to them.

This is the most powerful spell for defeating enemies that aren't knocked over, due to the number of hits. This makes characters using this spell able to defeat ground-based bosses in mere seconds. Even taking enemies that are knocked over into consideration, the spell is still overpowered because of the incredible crowd control capabilities.

When at max potential, this attack does approximately 2.9x more damage to any enemy that receives chain damage than the next most powerful splash attack, but at the same time it yields four times as much XP per cast of magic, making it the most effective form of magic for XP farming on bosses Catfish/Painter.

Magic Projectile

"Buzzsaw"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

A round saw blade used as a magic projectile. His air projectile is the same, but at a 45-degree angle.

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

"Smog Rise"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Jump with purple steam cloud and steam sound effect that damages enemies.
