Best Characters to Play as in Castle Crashers

These are the best characters to play as in my new favorite game, Castle Crashers.
The Top Ten
1 The Industrialist

This is another great character. His magic is a sure-fire way to kill bosses. His saws are amazing and extremely reliable. You can't go wrong with the Industrialist.

He is by far the best (along with the Lancer because they have the same magic). His magic saws are insane for juggling and destroying bosses within seconds, making insane mode incredibly easy.

Yes! This is why my sister has another save that's just all Blue Knight.

2 The Blue (Ice) Knight

Highly underestimated, this is by far the best knight. A lot of people may disagree, but with the Xbox combo of X, X, X, Y, you are unstoppable. You do a fair amount of damage as the knight, and you can keep your enemies frozen long enough to wipe them out.

This knight is very reliable in insane mode because of its ability to freeze others.

3 The Red (Electric) Knight

There are few downsides to this shockingly powerful knight. The Y magic attack only runs out when your magic bar is depleted, and the magic does lots of damage too. The only downside is that you can get attacked from behind while using your magic, and it eventually becomes less powerful on insane mode.

Oh wow. Even with the Red Knight's huge boss disadvantage, he is ranked high. Good thing I play as the Red Knight... with a good boss fighter to help me.

4 The Green (Poison) Knight

Although the attacks are weak, the poison is a great way to take down weaker enemies with ease. The damage over time is key to fighting large groups, and the poisonous explosion of RT and Y is extremely useful for fighting crowds of enemies.

5 The Wind Bear

He is very useful, especially for fighting hard bosses. His wind magic can help you escape hard attacks while damaging foes in the process. Definitely deserves a spot in the top 10.

Very useful for escaping close calls on insane mode if you have low agility, and helps with juggling. Highly recommend this character.

I play as the Red Knight. I looked at the wiki and I was like, "I need the Bear, NOW," so I have a goal to get it.

6 The Necromancer

His magic is by far one of the best, and his undead skills are amazing. Hands gripping enemy feet and suicidal skeletons sprinting to foes - who doesn't think that is awesome?

His air projectile and magic projectile, when full magic, can do explosive damage!

7 The King

A very reliable character, The King can heal himself and others. He is very helpful in multiplayer, especially when fighting bosses.

8 The Pink (Love) Knight

Pink should be higher up! My sister got to level 30 very quickly using the Pink Knight. When I play as a weak character (for fun), the Pink Knight is always the best to have as my companion.

He is a very joyful person who spreads love, rainbows, and peace all around but is always ready to kick your butt.

9 The Orange (Fire) Knight
10 The Blacksmith

Very helpful. He does good damage and is great in multiplayer or single-player. Besides, who doesn't like flaming hammers crashing upon opponents, am I right?

The Contenders
11 Cult Minion

The Cult Minion's starting weapon, the glowstick, is extremely helpful because it really enhances your magic. He serves the evil wizard and will follow any of his commands, even if it means risking his own life.

He also has the same magic as the skeleton and is often mistaken for the evil wizard.

He is resistant to fire, poison, ice, and electric damage. He is extremely good for PvP.

My best character! He is fun and good for leveling!

12 Ninja

The Ninja is an extremely helpful character. It has one of the best splash attacks in the game and is great for both bosses and normal enemies. The Ninja's splash attack hits enemies extremely fast. I think it is an awesome character!

A good boss slayer, and extra points for being able to block hits using a coffee cup.

13 Hatty Hattington

Hatty might not be a very good character in the game, but he is very useful because of three words: MAKE IT RAIN!

14 Barbarian
