Breeders are the strongest enemy in the game, taking multiple catapult or mighty ballista shots to kill. They are called “breeders” because every few seconds, they stop and spit out 4 greed to aid them with their assault. Breeders are slow and hard hitting, making you drop tons of coins with each hit. Attempting to run past them will cause your mount to rear back, leaving you vulnerable to being hit before you can run past. They can throw your catapult’s rocks back at you, which can deal heavy damage to a wall, knock a ton of coins out of your bag, and incapacitate any subjects it hits. Thrown boulders can also incapacitate archers in towers, even in towers that protect their archers from floaters (unconfirmed). When your subjects are incapacitated, they drop their tools on the ground and just lie there, being useless for a while. Breeders will also punch your walls when they get close to them, and can take down most low tier walls in a matter of seconds. Sometimes they spawn with a crownstealer riding them for double the trouble! The worst part about breeders is that they cannot be bribed, and will never head back to their portal. They want your crown, and they are willing to die trying to get it.
Crownstealers appear late game, and are the bane of any monarch’s existence. They usually spawn riding on the backs of breeders, jumping off only if the breeder dies or reaches a wall, or if a nearby crown-wearer is out in the open. When on the ground, they ignore all subjects and go straight for the monarch, running on all fours at unmatched speeds and even jumping over any walls just to reach you. They are incredibly fast, to the point where they cannot be outrun, and if they successfully reach you, they will always knock your crown off immediately, regardless of whether or not you have coins or gems. Due to their extreme speed, the crownstealer is then guaranteed to reach the crown before you can recover it. They don’t have much health, so your best bet is to stay behind your walls, and get your troops to kill them before they can reach you and nag your crown.
