Hell Hounds and Cerberi are level 3 creatures of Inferno. They are recruited from the Kennels.

These demon canines have a fearsome bite and good mobility. Cerberi have three heads and can attack three adjacent enemies in a single attack. Their damage range is quite wide, which makes them benefit greatly from Bless spell. However, Bless is one of the spells that cannot appear in the inferno towns' mage guilds.

Special ability[edit]

While hell hounds have no special ability, cerberi have an ability phrased as 3-headed attack. It allows cerberi to attack three adjacent hexes at the same time causing individual damage to the hexes. The adjacent hexes are determined from the direction of the attack. The hexes affected by cerberi's attack is the target hex, and the ones to the left and to the right to it. However, creatures that are two hexes wide do not suffer double damage from cerberi's attack. Additionally, cerberus attack do not enable a retaliation from the target.

Heroes with a specialty[edit]
  • Fiona Fiona the Demoniac has hell hounds as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any hell hounds or cerberi for each level attained after 3rd level and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Restoration of Erathia and Armageddon's Blade[edit]

In Restoration of Erathia and Armageddon's Blade there was unique situation when damage of the unit decreased after upgrade {2-7 for Hell Hounds and 2-5 for Cerberi). It was changed in Shadow of Death.
