"Little guy with lots of swords, runs through the ranks outfitting your peasants with real weapons."
— Game Description
The Sword-Boy helps out in battle, but is not an ideal troop to have. Being that it cannot attack, and Peasants do not survive very long.
The Sword-Boy have not a good health, and they cant defend themselves, so it is better to keep them behind the troops, for preventing its death.
The Sword-Boy has no weapons, so he can't attack or defend. He gives the Peasants weapons, but if you don't any have peasants in your army, DON'T include the Sword-Boy in your army because it has no point. (Whoever wrote this page is an idiot who clearly has no idea how sword-boys work and how effective they can be)
The Sword-Boys are the first troops that cannot attack.
The Sword-Boys are the first units that provide other units with a boost or weapon.
There can only be one Sword-Boy at a time, even though he isnt a hero.
