Kingdom Two Crowns Pikemen and Ninjas

Pikemen (Default Biome)
Tool: Spear
Job: Defend (Crowd Control)
Coin Capacity: 0 Coins

Pikemen (AKA spearmen) are a temporary unit, meant to be used as a way to turn the tides of a battle you know you may lose. During the day, pikemen wander around aimlessly, occasionally using their spears to hunt for fish, and are the only unit that can hunt during the winter. At night, pikemen defend the furthest constructed wall on their assigned side, and stab enemies as they attack the wall. Their attacks pierce through all enemies they touch, and deal the same amount of damage as 1 arrow to each enemy they hit. After 2-4 stabs, the pikeman’s weapon will break, and they will turn back into a peasant. Only 1 pikeman can be active on any given wall; if there are extras, they will wait in line, getting ready to take the place of the active pikeman when his spear breaks. Only 3 backup pikemen can wait at each wall, so any extra pikemen exceeding this limit will guard the next furthest wall inward. If all walls are occupied by 4 pikemen, the remaining pikemen will guard your town square.

Ninjas (Shogun Biome)
Tool: Katana
Job: Defend (Ambush)
Coin Capacity: ? Coins

Ninjas replace pikemen in the shogun DLC. They operate very differently than pikemen, and thus are listed separately, but are still a temporary unit that serves the same purpose. During the day, ninjas will wander around near the outer wall of the side they are defending, and unlike pikemen, will not hunt anything. As night approaches, they run out to the forest and hide behind a bamboo chute near the edge. Once the greed pass the ninja’s hiding spot, the ninja will leap out to backstab the enemy, and then proceed to quickly stab each enemy nearby until he eventually is hit with an attack, which will make him vanish in a puff of smoke, never to be seen again. Because of this unit’s inability to hunt for fish during the winter, players should strongly reconsider attempting single-reign runs in the shogun biome.
