Behemoths and Ancient Behemoths are level 7 creatures of Stronghold town. They are recruited from the Behemoth Lair (while the external dwelling is Behemoth Crag).

"The attack of these giant creatures is so overwhelming it reduces their target's ability to mount further defenses. The attack of the behemoth reduces target defense value by 40%. Ancient behemoth attacks reduce it by 80%." RoE manual

Tactics and info[edit]

This section contains a general opinion over the subject!

The defense is reduced only for the behemoths' attack, and is returned to normal immediately after that.

An Ancient Behemoth is among the few recruitable level 7 creatures that can defeat an Archangel in one-on-one combat, another example being the Haspid from Horn of the Abyss expansion. (A Titan can also defeat an Archangel one-on-one by defending 4 times and then attacking).
