Top Ten Worst Clash Royale Cards


The Top Ten

1 Tombstone

How is this #1?! Tombstone is an extremely useful card! It's an amazing counter to anything that charges, like the prince, bandit, mega knight, and dark prince. Arguably one of the best cards for stalling. How is this the worst card in the game?!

It's controversial as its great for stalling and distracting but the skeletons die and get shot down easily by towers and can be replaced with other towers like goblin hut. It may be in top 10 but I probably wouldn't put it first. But, like I said, it's controversial.

What? This card can defend against a prince, giant even royal giant... - Jmoore

It’s one of my favorite cards. Your just butt hurt cause I beat you so bad and you can’t scratch my tower cause a big grave yards in your way! Anyway enjoy your loosing streak.

2 Bomb Tower

It can't even attack air troops, and there are other options such as the Inferno Tower.

Not for skeleton army barbarians or any other swarm cards dumbass bomb tower is way better than inferno - stoner69

Bomb Tower is really bad. Inferno Tower is a much more powerful alternative. - BillyBobJoe

Bomb tower is useless. What a waste for 5 elixir!

3 Sparky Sparky

Because u don't know how to use it retard they wont push the other lane because if they do they know sparky will take their tower plus anything they put down will be instantly destroyed and not everyone has zap by the way and even if they do it will charge back up great value for 6 elixir giant wizard sparky bowler is obliteration - stoner69

Sparky is so easily countered by many things! There are just so many better options out there to use. Plus, Sparky must be backed up by LOTS of other troops to make it somewhat half-decent. For a 6 elixir cost, the card is horrible.

Sparky is overrated and one of the worst cards. Zap spell will reset her change, skeleotns will distract her easily, mini pekka can kill her in seconds of she is not charged. A giant in front of her can be countered with cannon (place the cannon so it will lure the giant into range of both arena towers.) Your opponent can also rush the opposite lane right after you deploy sparky. Not much value for 6 elixir

So slow, so weak at HP, so easily defended, so expensive, equals, no prizes for guessing, it's the one and only trash can on wheels

4 Goblin Hut

Just so annoying but when delayed these guys can do a lot of damage when their built up - stoner69

This building can actually do tons of damage but since the bowler was realesed this building is now stupid

Its still a good card shoudnt be on this list


V 2 Comments
5 Barbarian Hut

This card is good against most decks that use building targeting troops. It has so much health, it can take a Lightning and still be helpful to take out the building targeting troop. Hog Rider is really hard to get to the tower when the opponent has this. - BillyBobJoe

Barbarian hut spawns 1 barbarian at a time and SEVEN ELIXIR is way to much for a barbarian hut. I can easily take it down with my mega knight. When he charges up his elixir I spawn mega knight to destroy the useless card.

4 barbarians equal 5 elixir, and this equals 7 elixir, while this spawns MORE barbarians. - micahisthebest

Every card is great but you do not know how to use them

V 5 Comments
6 Clone

Umm, clone is amazing! Spell bait then clone a night witch or any decent troop and you almost always take a tower!

I agree that this should be on here. Infamous. Annoying to fight against. And the nerf officially killed it

That's because you use it when their at the tower dummy clone is great on golem lavahound battle ram or gob barrel and definitely op on balloon and giant skeleton so u stupid - stoner69

This card is absolute garbage. It’s like a worse Mirror for 3 Elixir. Ever heard of Tornado, Zap, Arrows. Wizard, etc.? Only time it works is a Giant Skeleton on a Tower.

7 Mortar

Mortar is awesome! It is cheap and plays well in offense and defense. People who hate it are probably too lazy to learn how to use it.

Its blind spot and long deploy time makes it useless. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Not really good in offense, and can easily be taken down.

It’s not that bad considering if it locks onto the tower it can do 3x damage than a princess for one more elixir, not to mention it can draw away hogs and royal giants from your tower, and it does splash

V 4 Comments
8 Valkyrie

This list is out dated. Back then valkyrie sucks, but the game developers increased the valkyrie's health and damage by a lot, now its AWESOME.

Your kidding me, Valkyrie is so good! So many people use it, it's good as a tank and does splash. It does not deserve to be on the top ten worst cards. Remove it

It is good this list seems wrong to me how can then valkyrie be here

I use this in most of my decks and I’m arena 10

V 7 Comments
9 X-Bow

Swarm it with cheap troops before 3.5 seconds is up, and boom the X-bow is gone - MChkflaguard_Yt

You should use a right combo before it

If it locks on tower and u don't have zap lightning or ice spirit your dead definitely if they use rage - stoner69

Does way to low damage, takes 2 hits to destroy skelly, SUCKS

V 2 Comments
10 Mirror

Mirror should be higher on this list. It definitely needs a buff. It's basically a joke of a card. - BillyBobJoe

Mirror is op with right troops su h as sparky wizard or knight u really are retarted dude plus mirror the gob barrel on each side so they have to choose - stoner69

The Contenders

11 Furnace

Furnace is useless

This card is a weird one, it can almost never be used on its own and must be used in combination with other huts. if you try to use this on its own the opponent will just attack the other side, his crown tower will 1-shot the fire spirits

How is this bad if you don't counter every wave of fire spirits theyll chip down your tower so much you wont realize it plus prince and valk deck is op with it since theyl forget about the fire spirits and drop minion horde but then itl be insantly killed and they just wasted 5 elixir and their tower is gone this card needs a nerf if you ask me - stoner69

12 Wizard

The Wizard is always very used and sometimes gets the job done. However, there are so many other better way to counter a swarm. The Executioner just steals all of its thunder. Not only that, but it dies to fireball quite easily if you don't have him leveled up.

Why the fu is this card here - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

In my opinion it's a horrible card, you don't really need this splash card, witch can counter a push really easily with help from other troops, most of the time a witch survives afterward so you can stick a giant in front of the witch.

Are you people drunk �' how is this true?!

V 5 Comments
13 Witch

Witch is amazing it is in my opinion it is one of the best cards in the game

Are u mental? This card has one of the greatest splash areas' and can deal with big pushes

Needs a buff too weak - stoner69

Witch is OP how is this bad it’s awesome because it spawns Skelton’s while doing damage it’s boss

14 Inferno Tower

Its good but inferno drag has made this card be used a lot less and for good reason since the drag is a moving inferno tower but the tower itself has more range and damage plus theyyl zap lightning freeze or ice spirit or use skeletons to distract it so your golem can destroy it along with support troops then your tower is dead - stoner69

This card shouldn't even be on this list. This, alongside the Barbarian Hut, destroy any tank beatdown decks (though if they have Lightning, Barb Hut is better). - BillyBobJoe

Not bad at all - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

I agree

15 Lightning

What? Lightning is actually super useful and in my Opinion 10X better than Rocket, it chain attacks 3 targets in the circle with the highest health points even if thy only JUST walk in it when it already starts electrocuting, it can also restart inferno towers/dragons if it doesn't kill them, it almost instant which can be super handy as rocket and fireball take a bit longer, it can also take out 3 troops that may be supporting a PEKKA, RG, Giant then its alone and you can deal with it. Only downside I'd say is that it can be countered if your smart but most people don't know how. - SagieBoi

Better than rocket can take out three annoying troops insantly that youd have to deal with later such as wizard musketeer and witch - stoner69


Not worth so much(6)elixir - MChkflaguard_Yt

16 Inferno Dragon

How can this be on the list? If it lock on a crown tower the tower is serverly damaged if not destroyed. - MChkflaguard_Yt

True its only good for crown towers or defense but if used with baby drag and lavahound if it locks onto the tower the tower is yours - stoner69

THIS IS VERY GOOD - legendary

17 Rocket

Too expensive and too slow because if you time it wrong 6 elixir down the drain - stoner69

18 Poison

Perfect for graveyard decks - stoner69

Poison is 4 elixir and doesn't have any good use except for graveyard
Why not just use zap or arrows

19 Musketeer

Musketeer is AWESOME, it can counter an opponents push really easily with the help of some other troops, usually she survives after countering an attack so you can then use her for your own attack

You cought me off guard. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE? THE MUSKETEER IS WELL, how do I say it, well, a perfect high damage, medium health, and a cheap troop for only 4 elixir - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

Piece of crap

I mean its good but easily outplayed by wizard and witch - stoner69

20 Three Musketeers

3 muskies are decent, they can be an ok replacement for inferno tower or super tough tank destroying troops, Decent but they are amazing when protected or if you have the heal spell. - SagieBoi

If it is used well then the ultimate annoyance generator is there - MChkflaguard_Yt

Too easy to counter and too risky to play.

One fireball and boom, 9 elixir gone down the drain

21 Guards

Hilariously I use Guards instead of skel army but I do agree they could use a bit of a buff. - SagieBoi

need buff - stoner69

22 Dart Goblin

Too easily countered. not worth 3 elixir

23 Elite Barbarians

The Elite Barbarian are excellent because almost everyone can use it on the meta but the problem is that, it can almost be easily countered.

Noob means someone who is inexperienced at something, not that they are dumb. Look it up. Also I agree on you with the elite barbarians, they are awesome.

You are noob
the elite barbarians are OP

Trash card countered too easily. They’re only good when you have them at a higher level than your opponent’s cards. They suck with the tournament stats. Notice how not one single top tier player uses them.

24 Fireball

No this may sound useless but you can use it as a final hit or to destroy troop spawning buildings - MChkflaguard_Yt

what - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

This is the best damage dealing spell in the game this list sucks 4 elixir fast launch speed and great damage - stoner69

25 Skeleton Army

Not bad at all - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

They buffed-nerfed it. Needs serious buff and anyway u can only use it till arena 3 cause after that people have well timed arrows or zap.

26 Battle Ram

Battle Ram does need a bit of a buff in my opinion, but it's use rate is increasing. I've seen really good players use it very well. - BillyBobJoe

27 Ice Golem

Pretty much pointless

28 Cannon

So weak fixed it with baby dragon - MChkflaguard_Yt

A what is cannon doing here - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

Can't kill anything hardly any hitpoints dies in 2-3 hits by giant range sucks do I need to say more...

Why does everyone think the cannon suck. Do any of you know about the building zone's, I don't think so.

A cannon in the kill zone can take out a giant or a hog rider and is the best substitute for inferno tower

29 Tesla

It's a pathetic card even to exist. Useless.

Can't be used for distraction cause it goes in the ground so the royal giant attacks your tower instead

Doesn't even stop the prince's charge, it's pathetic.

30 Skeleton Barrel

Skeleton barrel is awful due to the fact that it can be countered easily by baby dragon, wizard, and by pretty much any character that attacks buildings. It’s death damage is also garbage. Needs a serious buff.

31 The Log

THE LOG IS AWESOME. It provides SOOO MUCH VALUE. If your opponent has a strong attack such as, giant+ice spirit+bomber+spear goblins+prince, for just two elixir the log will provide INSANE value. The log is also the only cards that can take out a princess for a positive elixir trade. The log will also damage/kill troops supporting the princess

Skeletons kill princess for positive trade too dummy

How can this be? It is the best card.

The log is useless end of story

V 3 Comments
32 Skeletons

Good for hog riders and killing a locked on princess for positive trade - stoner69

The princess towers just shoot them. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Plus great cycle card - stoner69

Super ass

V 3 Comments
33 Barbarian Barrel

It is a really bad epic less range and less damage


34 Giant Snowball

So? It can counter goblin barrel, princess and swarms. It also can slow down troops. Like balloon.

It does too little damage

35 Giant Skeleton

Good on defense or good tank for graveyard push plus clone is deadly with this guy - stoner69

This is a bad card giant is way better: more damage, and only targets buildings. The giant skelly is so stupid - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

You noobs trash for the billion time use this card in defense only even the best player can't stop his support troop from dying to gient skeleton always provide positive elixir trades

Giant Skeleton can be countered by Skeleton Army, Minion Horde, and Goblin Gang. It’s basically easy to counter due to the fact it is a tank that attacks all ground troops. He isn’t that bad IF he actually GETS TO THE TOWER

V 1 Comment
36 Dark Prince Dark Prince

Although it has splash its limited to charge hit so just distract him and skarmy him - MChkflaguard_Yt


37 Knight

This is way worse than some of the other cards on this list

38 Lava Hound

Once I fixed one just with minions and arrows. legendary isn't always good - MChkflaguard_Yt

The lava hound is sooo good if you use lava loon than arows

39 Archers
40 Barbarians
41 Spear Goblin
42 Night Witch Night Witch

This got nerfed way too much it only spawns 2 bats when dies and its attack got weaker.

43 P.E.K.K.A

Why u say kelly is bad she's really good and don't u dare call her a he or a him

Pekka can't do damage alone. It costs 7 elixer. And is easy to counter. You can counter it with skeleton army, minions, etc. If you add up the total cost for pekka and counter to there counter it's to much. Pekka is to slow and is now worth 7 elixer.

44 Bomber

It’s got low health and does low damage. Although this has a Great splash, air troops can easily kill this off and you can easily get a positive elixir trade

45 Goblins
46 Electro Wizard Electro Wizard

Autistic card ever but decent troop


47 Royal Ghost Royal Ghost
48 Goblin Gang

This is good for zap and log bait decks - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz

How this bad great swarm card for 3 elixir and if they ignore theyyl take half the tower - stoner69

49 Giant
50 Golem

It costs 8 and therefore if not used correctly it is a waste of elixir. Prepare for the inferno dragon and valkyrie counterpush. - MChkflaguard_Yt
