Fury drives the Cerberus to move quickly around the battlefield and strike with great strength and anger, but in its rage it often pays too little heed to its own defense. Cerberus attacks are impossible to defend against, and its three-headed strike can hit multiple enemies.OffBck

The cerberus is the upgrade of the hell hound, the third-level creature of the Inferno in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

A grand improvement, this upgrade introduces two very impressive abilities: No Retaliation, which will let the vulnerable cerberus avoid damage, and Three-Headed Attack, which lets it deal it. This unit becomes the damage-dealer of the Inferno hordes.


  • No Enemy Retaliation - Enemies never retaliate after melee attacks by creatures with this ability.
  • Demonic - This creature belongs to Inferno. The Chain shot (Succubus Mistress ability) does not affect it but it is vulnerable to Holy Word spell.
  • Three-headed Attack - The creature can attack simultaneously all enemy creatures standing on three adjacent cells.
