Parasytes are mysterious aliens inhabiting the jungle stages in Kingdom Rush: Frontiers. They appear to have come to the planet by the crashed spaceship in the Lost Jungle.


These creatures lay eggs inside their victims, which later spawn horrible monsters.

Parasytes do not spawn from entrances (except in the Iron Challenge), but from violet egg sacs. They are one of the most annoying enemies in the entire game: their 'attack' renders a soldier useless and will make him explode into a tough Reaper if not removed. This pretty much kills your barracks defenses as a face-hugged soldier isn't considered dead yet and thus will not respawn. Worse still, they will be periodically spawned in groups during later waves, and worst of all, don't give any gold when killed.


  • Kill Parasytes quickly: DWAARP are particularly effective at getting rid of a lot of them. Buy Furnace Blast or stack the DWAARP with Falconer bonus from Crossbow Forts, to increase the damage of the tower.
  • Do not use too many unupgraded barracks, as they will only serve as fodder for the Parasytes. In the Lost Jungle Iron Challenge, it is recommended to sell at least three of the basic barracks the game has pre-built for you.
  • Due to the Parasytes' dangerously fast speed, it is advised to keep at least one Knights Templar behind your main kill zone to distract the ones leaking through. Buy high-level Toughness to ensure the men have enough health to survive. Necromancer Towers can play a similar role, however, the summoned group of walking bones can easily be run over by overwhelming Ma'qwa forces, opening a hole for Parasytes to swarm through.
  • Alric's Sand Warriors and Bonehart's Bone Golems don't generate Reapers when they die, so sending them in as fodder is effective (as a Parasyte will die after consuming an invalid host). Same can be said for Skeletons and Skeleton Knights raised by the Necromancers.
