The champion is the upgrade to the cavalier, the sixth-level creature for the Castle faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded training grounds.

The horse-mounted cavalier and champion deal extra impact damage (+5% per hex traveled to creature attacked) when charging into battle.OffBck

With a slight increase in stats, for a 20% increase in price, this is a decent, but small upgrade. The extra speed will increase its potential Jousting bonus, which is very useful.


  • Bringing cavaliers to stables on the world map will upgrade them to champions for free.
  • Tyris is a specialist in champions, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level.
