Thieves' Forest is the sixth level in Castle Crashers. This is one of the longer levels in the game and can present a problem to players who are unprepared, most likely against the Troll Mother.


Fight your way through a few hordes of Thieves on your way to the right. You will eventually come to a river which you can walk across and you'll find another Animal Orb waiting for you, the Seahorse. This will allow you to move through water quickly. You'll want this, especially for the Flooded Temple level.

Follow the path to the right and you'll find yourself in some ruins. Little fuzzy black creatures, Trolls, will pop out of the ruins and attack you. Continue to the right and defeat the Trolls along the way. Watch out for their attack; they have little health but deal a large amount of damage. About halfway through is a wall that can be broken open with bombs to get the Animal Orb, a friendlier Troll. When you come to the breakable wall, run behind the pillar leaning against it. You will find the Wrapped Sword weapon.

Smash through the breakable wall. Proceed to the right and you'll come to a small camp where Thieves are fleeing to the left. Kill them if you want, but if you let them run by they turn into gold coins when they exit the screen. On the right side of the camp you will come to the outside of the Abandoned Mill where the Troll Mother will come out and spit out smaller Trolls. Don't worry about the small ones, just focus on the large one. When you've defeated it, head into the Abandoned Mill on the right.


  • Boomerang - Right at the beginning of the level; Cardinal required.
  • Thief Sword - If you still haven't obtained this weapon yet, Thieves have a chance to drop it, even the fleeing ones.
  • Wrapped Sword - This weapon is found behind a broken pillar after fighting the Trolls.
  • Meat Tenderizer - This weapon is found in a chest near the beginning of the level.
  • Leafy Twig - This weapon is found in a chest right after the stone ruins.

Animal Orbs

  • Seahorse - This Animal Orb can be found near the river early on in the level.
  • Troll - Return to the ruins when you have bombs. After fighting the Trolls in the area, you will see a wall along the back with a small hole in it and what appears to be another Troll hiding. Throw three bombs or use the Conehead's, Royal Guard's, or Gray Knight's Projectile Attack three times to destroy this wall and free the Troll Animal Orb from its imprisonment. Note: Bombing the crack in the wall will not work. You must bomb directly in front of the Troll Animal Orb.


  • There is a glitch that can be performed near the end of the level in which the player can go out of bounds. At the last cliff, the player must hold LT (Shield) against the cliff at the bottom of the screen. If done correctly, the player will clip through the cliff, but then land back in bounds. If 2 or more players clip the wall, they will stay in bounds.
  • This is also the level where the Flying Thief Glitch can be performed; after seeing the fleeing Thieves keep on following the aforementioned Thieves until they are stuck up against a wall in which all you need to do is hurl the Thieves upwards over the wall. Keep following the Thieves where eventually, you'll see the Thieves float in mid-air.
  • On rare occasion, a glitch may occur in the river (with the bridge over it) where touching the water would leave the water slow effect on the player for the rest of the level.


  • The music that plays throughout this level is called -Space pirates- by Waterflame.
  • The music that plays during the Troll Mother Fight is called -The show- by Waterflame.
  • This is the level where animals unknowingly start having bowel problems. There are 3 animals here that defecate after getting scared by the Giant Troll. An Owl, a Pooping Deer, and a Brown Bear.
