Mailk

Malik Hammerfury is a hero in Kingdom Rush. He is one of the three heroes with only melee attacks, and is also one of the three free heroes. On the iOS and Steam versions, he is unlocked by finishing Coldstep Mines. He has the highest health of any hero in Kingdom Rush.

Description

From a land far, far away, came a Hero with unmatched strength, untamed mind, and unbroken will. A destructive force, an unleashed fury, a bullet train attitude! His hammer smashes the ground like a u-bomb full of over weighted braquiosaurs. He asks no permission, he makes no excuses, he answers no questions!

He came, he saw, he conquered!

Fool be the poor soul who crosses paths with Malik Hammerfury, hero of Linirea!

Tips and Tricks

Malik is a pure melee hero which means he could not attack flying enemies. Do not send Malik towards a lane that has mostly flying enemies on it.

Bear in mind heroes in melee are vulnerable to ranged enemies, so get reinforcements or your own units to deter that threat.

Malik has great defensive and offensive attributes, yet he is considered slow with a move speed of 4 Bars, so try not to switch lanes unless urgently required.

Even though Malik's second skill can kill from afar, he is a pure melee hero, it is not advisable to send him against Demons, as Demons explode when killed, dealing great damage to melee units.

Retreat only when the waves get harder and your lanes where you sent Malik to starts to get overwhelmed. Better to retreat back to where your units are stationed to give him a chance to see another wave.

Against bosses without instant kill mechanisms like The Juggernaut, Malik could easily tank against them, allowing extra delay time, However, retreat as soon as possible to prevent the boss from dealing the death blow on your hero. Call Reinforcements and/or making use of units would significantly delay the boss from reaching its goal, allowing towers to deal significant damage to the boss.

Against bosses with instant-kill mechanisms such as J.T., Vez'nan or Sarelgaz, DO NOT SEND MALIK AGAINST THEM. He will only be eaten by the boss, worsening the situation. Rather, send him to defend your final choke points, fending off enemies while your towers deal with the boss.

Trivia

  • Malik (Arabic: ملك‎) (Hebrew: מֶלֶךְ‎) is a Semitic name, meaning king, chieftain.
  • "It's hammer time!" is a line taken from the song U Can't Touch This! by rapper MC Hammer.
  • "Can't touch this!' is also from the MC Hammer song (notably in the title), both this and Hammer Time have entered popular culture as catch phrases and are used in numerous sources.
  • "I pity the fool!" is one of the catch-phrases of the character B.A.Barachus in the TV series The A-Team. B.A. is portrayed as a large bodied black man that nobody wants to mess with, much like Malik is portrayed.

YoungMalik Mini

Malik (not yet named Hammerfury) appears in Kingdom Rush: Origins, as a slave toiling under the whips of Ogre warlocks in the Blood Quarry. Starting from wave 2 onwards, he can be seen being forced to mine bloodsydian under the watch of two Gnoll Gnawers, while asking the player to help him with a Thunderbolt. If the player does so, the Gnolls will be killed and Malik will discard his pickaxe in favour of a hammer that mysteriously falls out of the sky, then joins forces with you as a secondary hero. He starts at level 1, gains experience at the speed of a Kingdom Rush hero's and is otherwise fully identical to his later appearance in the original Kingdom Rush, albeit with decreased stats.

In the Iron Challenge, Malik is available at the start of the level, at level 10. He doesn't appear in the Heroic Challenge.

Trivia

  • When you free Malik his hammer drops down from the sky. As you've used the Thunderbolt to free him, the hammer may be a reference to Thor, as the swirl on the face of the hammer Malik wields appears to be on Mjolnir, as wielded by Thor, in his profile art.
