Above are the troops that can counter the Royal Giant in Clash Royale.

  • Inferno Tower: The number one Giant exterminator. This defensive building, with its ability to deal more damage over time, can take out a Royal Giant quickly.
  • Witch: She summons skeletons every few seconds, which can swarm the Royal Giant.
  • Skeleton Army: The Royal Giant prioritizes buildings. It doesn't attack troops which make it weak against swarms and MOBs.
  • Musketeer: She deals moderate damage from a distance. She can take out the Royal Giant before he even gets close to your crown towers.
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A: Deals huge DPS and quick. One of these can easily take down any troop with ease, even a Royal Giant.
  • Spear Goblins: Three Spear Goblins are enough to take out a Royal Giant. Might take awhile due to their low DPS.
  • Minion Horde: The Royal Giant can't attack any troops. A swarm of Minions can beat down a Royal Giant easily.
  • Barbarians: The Barbarians are fast, strong, and mean. They can surround the Royal Giant before it even reaches your Arena.

Decks that can counter the Royal Giant:

With the right cards, a deck build upon the Barbarian Hut can be deadly in later stages of the game. Once you successfully counter the Royal Giant, you can go for an unstoppable push.

The air-attack deck focuses on that one glaring mistake of many Clash Royale players - focusing on the ground.

The Three Musketeers Strategy is a popular alternative to Mortars and Hogs in high-level arenas. Learn how to utilize this kind of deck here.

Overall:

The Royal Giant doesn't need to get close to your arena towers to deal damage. He can stand from a distance while other low-cost troops (like the Knight) can act as a meatshield. However, an elixir-advantage can be achieved if the Royal Giant is countered successfully. He's 1 elixir more than a normal Giant while his counters cost 3 elixirs or less.
