Top Ten Most Overpowered Clash Royale Cards


The Top Ten

1 Sparky

Just got the Sparky about a week ago as my 4th legendary card. Unfortunately, for it's high elixir cost, Sparky isn't as OP as many people think. One zap spell and the Sparky loses its charge, Sparky can also easily be countered by practically anything. Throw in any low cost unit in front of your tower when the Sparky is about to unleash and your tower is saved.

If you accompany the Sparky with certain cards, the push can become devastating. Unfortunately though, most of the people I fight don't use the Sparky properly. - Oliveleaf

Sparky is NOT OP AT ALL. I am arena 8 and I have sparky and I understand how easily a sparky can be defeated

This deck works well at countering sparky: hog rider, musketeer, Valkyrie, skeletons, poison, cannon, zap, elixir collector

I like sparky!

2 Royal Giant

Royal giant is overpowered, and he only becomes more overpowered after you have destroyed one of your opponents towers and he can be placed on your opponents side of the arena. You could counter push against it though

Sparky is not really overpowered but royal giant is 100% overpowered if you don't get any building, it nearly guaranteed at least 500 damage to your tower even you counter it with the same elixir defense

Since the update he can shoot the archer towers from so far away you can't even touch him that well - TheHabsFan

It has almost the same damage as the hog rider and it doesn't even have to walk to the tower.

I use pekka to devastate people in double elixir time when I can support it with ice wizard, electro wizard, and executioner. When you support it well, it can be an unstoppable card.

I've been playing this game since release day and to this day I stand next to the PEKKA, from its very powerful hit to its beefy status, in my opinion the PEKKA is the best card in the game. Yes it can countered relatively easily, but with the right cards supporting it, it is one of the most unstoppable cards. I have such an easy time stopping hog rider decks, Royal Giant decks, and Golem + Elixer pump decks, the PEKKA is just too good.

Definitely more overpowered than sparky is. It can be counter pretty easily but people always put something like witch and wizard behind to make it non counterable. I hate it when people use it against me. It makes me so mad.

Pekka is unstoppable if you get a witch,wizard, or a executioner behind her.

4 Bomb Tower





5 Elixir Collector

If you get a good elixir advantage you should win the game - TheHabsFan

When I use it it gives negative trait as it is countered by miner and goblin barrel waste of elixir

This with Golem Beatdown... Unstoppable

The best in making pushes :D

6 Princess

Princess is dangerous yes but is pretty simple to kill, that of course depends on your deck, elixir and if she is shielded upfront by a tank that may be attacked instead.

With the right kind of deck she can be untouchable

She is very easy to kill with a log

Best troop

7 Elite Barbarians

The Royale Giant has a 1.1% usage rate. The elite barbarians have 13.6% usage rate. U see the elite barbarian like 13x more. How do more people hate the Royal giant. In my opinion, the royale giant is the second worst card in the game. After the flying machine. The elite barbs + prediction arrows combo= instant win. The key to being 1# in the world is elite barbs arrow. Royale Giant should be near last place. He needs a buff making him out range the tower and makes his deploy time to 1sec(from 2sec) and damage +10% and he'll be balanced.

Flying Machine is good though, it has the range of a Musketeer and almost damage of it too. - SagieBoi

One of the only counters is skeleton army, and the opponent can easily use a log to destroy the defense. The elite barbs also move very fast, so if you are low on elixir, it's good game for you. - Oliveleaf

Royal giant is week. I made a deck with him used it and dropped from Jungle Arena to Royal Arena. Then I started using elite barbs and got back to Jungle Arena. Don't argue with me. You know I'm right

just cause

8 Barbarians

Seriously, did an arena 3 player who just unlocked the barbarians put them on this list because they counterd 4 skeletons for him or what

This card is balanced, not OP at all. Its easy to counter them but be careful ignoring them they can be very nasty. - SagieBoi

9 Miner

Should be number one most overpowered in my opinion. Usage abilities: distract arena tower, it has a lot of health and is cheap, take out elixir collectors with paired up with zap to zap defending troops, take out weak troops on opponent side of arena

It in my opinion is the best card it can distract and is untouchable underground and backed up with a sparky the game is practically over and it is still good in higher arenas I'm in arena 10 and its still beast

Like freeze for the tower just lasts longer is cheaper and does damage

So many usess

10 Mini PEKKA

It's easy to counter, but it's op if you don't have the right counter cards. - Oliveleaf

It's easy to counter, but if you prefire log then it may be devastating on the tower.

It's super op if the PEKKA and the mini PEKKA make it to the tower - TheHabsFan

This things damage needs big nerf

The Newcomers

? Wall Breakers

Good for taking out building cards.

? Ram Rider

The Contenders

11 Electro Wizard

Can shut down multiple decks and is a direct counter to inferno dragon and inferno tower. Also very strong at counter pushing

If you get it to the tower it does tunes of damage

Biggest cheeseball card in the game. Only card the actually shuts down other cards. Like totally shut down. Sparky never even gets a shot, and bowler can be 100% shut down if the timing of shots is right. Needs the stun from his shots removed. - AwesomeDave

Well removing the stun is pretty much removing the legendary part of him. - StrikeOfLight

Most people’s favourite card one of the best over powered fast and amazing what else could you want?

12 Prince

Prince is in itself quite easy to counter with the right card.
But the two most common support troops are now Double Prince. (Prince and Dark Prince) and Prince Minion Horde.
Double Prince is difficult to stop because of double charge, and dark prince splash damage. However, if you put out a tank and a musketeer behind it may be fine.
The Prince Minion horde is hard to stop with a tank combination and the Minion horde easily knocks out swarm troops. To stop this combination you need to stop the minion horde first and then take care of the prince. This goes easy with a good spell in the hand.
With the right kind of card it goes easy but if you get a negative elixir deal it is easy to look at when these take out your princess tower in a few seconds. - MillionCR

If you have no elixir/a bad starting deck and opponent starts of with an aggressive prince and rage you are going to have trouble dealing with him even if you are at a higher arena also the prince causes a devastating amount of damage so if supported with the right troops he can finish all of your crown towers.

In the lower arenas, if you don't have a skeleton army, you are 100% dead. - Oliveleaf

Prince + mirror=dead of tower

13 Hog Rider Hog Rider

Best single card in the game sense day 1. Like 80% of decks in top 200 almost always include the hog rider,

For me this and the Electro Wizard are the most OP in the Game. Runs too fast, too much damage. If it reaches your tower, until you kill it, you have probably been left with a half-life tower

Insane, a lot of life and damage for only 4 elixir. An idea is to turn it to a 5-elixir cost card

The fact that I goes for the towers and is so fast it also has good health

V 6 Comments
14 Golem

Golem is the most expensive single unit card in the game, not for nothing.. If u manage to follow it with suitable backup, a tower gift is pretty much guaranteed. The best thing is even if it fails to reach the tower, the golem blast still manages to get rid of most of the troops attacking it

How is this card on this list? It is very trashed. A inferno dragon ALONE can quickly destroy the golem, even the golemites. You will quickly say electro wizard is here to help but it is quickly distracted. Night witch then put a wizard to deal with it - MChkflaguard_Yt

I got a lot of stuff from my Magical Chest. This was my favorite! First, it has a lot of health. Second, it explodes and splits in two. Third, even the little Golemites explode. This guy is OP!

What, This is one of those things that gives GUARANTEED damage on your tower. Inferno? nope, too slow,
Skarmy? Golem's splash damage when death kills them'all.
The only way to counter is inferno / building or a big push with a negative elixir trade.

15 Balloon

If you place this with the lumberjack it is overpowered as hell

Vroom vroom where did your tower go

So much damage!

LumberLoon is kinda broken. Lava hound deserves a buff, Balloon and Bochum deserves nerfs.

16 Mega Knight

I hate this card more than anything. There are cards that you can deal with that are powerful but I have lost a ton of my games to this way overpowered card that unless you have one you are pretty much gonna lose your round.

Good if you protect it with some other troops

No way to stop it from getting to your tower

You can easily waste twenty elixer trying to stop this way overpowered card. By that time your opponent has dropped other cards and taken out the rest of your defense.

17 Executioner

As the newest card in Clash Royale, it is the most favourite card of all of the Arena 9/10 clashers. Even though it was weakened in the new balance change, it is still the most OP card in Clash Royale.

Executioner hits air, ground, and ALL OF THE SWARMS this hoe totally OP


18 Night Witch Night Witch

No, night witch is balanced.
Unfortunately, the night witch is versatile and can finish most things with bats, or take out mini-tanks quickly. - MillionCR

I am sorry but if you don't think the night witch is the most op card, you're wrong. Since she was released the user rate has been incredibly high and all meta decks include her or are specifically for countering those meta decks. in my opinion she is a flawed concept and should be nerfed heavily.

19 Inferno Dragon

If your opponent isn't smart enough to counter it until it locks onto the tower, you've got a free crown

Goodbye tanks

As a counter, it's lovely. If you know how to play it, it can win you games. Loads.

Makes every single tank into a lava cake
Can three crown in 51 seconds if ignored
Just so OP - MChkflaguard_Yt

20 Valkyrie

Stupid valkyrie so much health. Once I placed witch and mirror and that valkyrie just spawned on top on the witch and boom the witch is gone wasted so much elixir.

It is very OP (over powered) and I think that everyone should use it because it a good defense in coming with hordes.

It is the only troop that attacks enemies all around it. I use it and it is very OP!

Way too much health

V 3 Comments
21 Ice Wizard Ice Wizard

The ice guide isn't op, but underestimated by many players.
In addition, it is very experienced player who uses this card. - MillionCR

Very good for slowing down pushes, and if used correctly they can devastate pushes by slowing them down - also useful to slow down hog riders, elite barbarians (ice wizard is to be used for support troop and very tanky)

This guy is back? Why is he so last he is in the top tens


22 Goblin Barrel

Op, definitely. the way it spawns the goblings is so bodering

23 Witch

Every since the July 2018 buff the witch has become OP as hell. In the lower arenas it is insanely annoying and if the opponents witch is overlevelled you can kiss all your trophies goodbye.

Ridiculous unlimited skeletons. Completely unfair card

24 Bandit

Bandit started awfully weak but since the but if backed up properly it is super op very hard to stop it from getting to tower

25 Ice Spirit

Can freeze a hog rider before hitting your tower with the help of bats

AOE freeze effect of 1.5 seconds
Hits tower by itself
Resets troops
Can take down a minion horse with help of tower all for one cost

26 Royale Ghost

Epic card that can take down many cards with proper support and even stop a high level wizard.This card is just lit

27 Zap Zap

Although I believe that the sparky is the most op card, I believe that the Zap is the most op spell due to its extremely low cost and high damage (compared to its cost). Also it stuns any troop and resets their attack (most of the time).

The zap can be used in any decks

Yo zap is awesome, hell yeah

28 The Log

It is overpowered on cards that gave low health but can not pat tack air.

Hate the log so very, very much

29 Giant Skeleton

It's is so good and the bomb or death damage is crazy on level 8! It's like 1300 something damage.also if it gets on a tower, the tower is in bad condition because of the damage! Unless you tornado it and pull it back. Finnaly, if you clone it and the two g skellies are on the tower, All u need to do is zap the tower and it might attack the clones one and do lots of damage plus the normal one.

30 Lumberjack

I think lumberjack is really op because it does 200 damage every 0.7 seconds and if you have zap in your line of cards or arrows you can counter attack low cost troops

Beast as really good if you wanted a high damage card and drops rage when dies OP as heil

It places a rage spell so it only costs 2 elixir for about 300 dps and can take down a tank in no time


31 Lava Hound

If you don't have the right defense, lavaloon, and double dragons, with minions will wreck you

32 Inferno Tower

Should be first place.It can destroy every card.

It does good damage from time to time and it is almost ALMOST better that the inferno dragon.that is level 1.

33 Skeleton Army

They are just OP. 14 Skeletons can beat prince and P.E.K.K.A. combined

34 Poison
35 Bowler

When you place a good push on your opponent with ground shooter troops behind a tank, your opponent places a bowler and it destroys nearly everything behind your tank. the only defense is a flying deck with all flying cards

Killz everything

36 Dragon

Its just to overpowerswqdfre that card is just 2 good

37 Freeze

Very useful if you know how to use it. You can pair it with Skeleton Army, and it can take out a Valkyrie and Mini Pekka combo. - RisingMoon

Hog Rider / Freeze combo guarantees 1000 damage if used correctly. - MillionCR

Freeze is in my opinion one of the most op cards in the game for lader...that's it...

38 Arrows

3 elixir and covers a wide area. High damage and targets air too. Can reduce wizards to half of their full health and kills princesses. That's why I always use arrows instead of log or zap. - MChkflaguard_Yt

They can kill a skeleton army in one shoot


39 Zappies

Zappies takes out almost every troop if they come alone.
It's actually ridiculous to put them out when the opponent's balloon is expected to take out your tower. There will be freeze and damage in one

Bruh these things cannot be stopped, they just stun the hell out of everything there is. Inferno stuff, gone. Pekka, can barely hit. Golem can't even fuxing move. Why I have to carry my fireball everywhere

40 Rage

Basically makes an already OP push 35% better! FOR 2 ELIXIR! - CameronBinder

2 elixir is a low cost. If used well, rage combos may destroy all 3 towers in less than 10 seconds. - Gabriponte22

41 Dart Goblin

It shoot farther than a musket but shoots very fast and does good damage on towers

42 Barbarian Hut

Sets two incredibly powerful barbarians over time and will destroy your tower

43 Three Musketeers

9 elixer rip of and can be countered very easily by a fireball. but good if locked on tower

44 Minion Horde

Because when cloned has 12 minions and takes the tower so quick

45 Battle Ram

I think the battle ram is good I use it over elite barbarians because it does more damage when it charges

This card can take down tower itself

46 Goblin Hut

So op

47 Hunter

Good to combat baby dragon wizards and balloons

Does more than 650 damage.

Wow so good

48 Furnace

Annoying as FUX if the spirits are the same level as your tower

49 Skeletons

In my opinion, skeletons are op for 1 elixir ever since they spawn 4 Larrys again

50 Goblin Gang

So many goblins and cheap clones it is unstoppable
