The Royal Ghost is unlockable in Arena 10 - Hog Mountain and above. He only costs 3 elixirs, moves fast, and is invisible unless he's attacking. He goes back in his invisible mode after 0.7 seconds until he attacks again.

He may look like the Knight's ancient dead ancestor but this Royal Ghost can deal splash damage. Although his splash damage range is not that big, he can still pierce through a group of Barbarians and hit two of them at max.

One of his greatest strengths is his ability to go invisible. He can go straight towards the enemy tower without activating the tower archers. Aside from that, his sword can pierce through the troop he's targeting and damage any troop behind it.

How to Counter the Royal Ghost:


Guards Goblins Ice Golem

Knight Mini P.E.K.K.A Bowler

  • Guards - Guards are the perfect counter against the Royal Ghost. You just have to make sure to place them on top of this legendary ghost.
  • Goblins - Same as the Guards but with less defense. Place them on top of the Royal Ghost and try not to lure him as he can kill two of them with a single strike. These Goblins can whittle the ghost's HP not completely finish him.
  • Ice Golem - Although not really a counter but you can use the Ice Golem to kite the Ghost. This will trigger the tower archers.
  • Knight - For a 3-3 equal elixir trade the Knight is the best counter. Make sure to also place him on top of the Royal Ghost.
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A - The Mini P.E.K.K.A costs 4 elixirs but she is a great counter against the Royal Ghost. This time, you have to place her near the middle of the arena to make the tower archers activate. Giving your Mini P.E.K.K.A enough HP for a counter-push.
  • Bowler - At 5 elixirs, the Bowler is a good counter against tankers with the Royal Ghost tagging behind. He can push them back easily.

Decks that may counter the Royal Ghost:

No Legendary Hog P.E.K.K.A Guards Deck for Arena 8 and Tournaments No Legendary Goison Prince for Arena 8

2.9 Skeleton Barrel Miner Control Deck for Arena 8 and Above No Legendary Golem Beatdown for Arena 7 and Above

The Royal Ghost may be tough to counter as he is invisible but using the techniques and units such as the Knight and Mini P.E.K.K.A can put a halt to this spooky legendary. Using the Ice Golem to kite is the same technique as kiting the P.E.K.K.A towards the other lane. With the other units minus the Mini P.E.K.K.A, make sure to drop them on top.
