This big blue guy from Clash of Clans is now available in the Clash Royale universe, thanks to the latest Supercell Update.

The Bowler is a 6-elixir epic card that has more than 2K HP. It focuses its damage to any ground units ahead. Using his rock to push and wreck his enemies, this tank card is unlockable in the Frozen Peak Arena - Arena 8.


The Bowler can be a big threat against spawner decks for it can deal impressive damage when used correctly. Its HP is huge enough to be the main tank of your Clash Royale Deck. Due to his ability, any ground units will be pushed backward once they were hit by its rolling boulder. This kind of troop/card feature is almost the same as the new legendary card, The Log.

Take note, these two cards cannot push back high HP units like the Giant, Golem and the like, for obvious reasons.

The Bowler can singlehandedly kill any low HP troops like the Skeleton Army. This troop may annihilate the Witch or the Barbarians in just a few hits if played fairly.

Due to its tanky feature, making a team with a range and ground splashers will be a good decision. This will help the Bowler to lengthen and maximize its ability.


Due to being a ground executioner, the Bowler can be killed by any air units (Minions, Minion Horde, Baby Dragon). Barbarians or Stabby Goblins can also kill this big guy if they are dropped around it.

  • Great insight there! So the Bowler should be down to 4 elixirs or something like that to compensate his slow speed and lack of HP. -- 05:42, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
  • need a lower elixer cost or more hp! musketeer should not be able to put this guy at critical health by them selves. also the DPS on this card is safe, but faster troops completly ruin this guys efective ness often times it is hard to keep units infront of him with out freeze. -- 16:56, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
