The cyclops is the sixth-level creature of the Stronghold faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia. It can be recruited from the cyclops cave. The cyclops can be upgraded to the cyclops king.
Cyclopses and cyclops kings attack at range by throwing boulders to devastating effect. Both can target siege walls and damage them like a Catapult (see War Machines and Siege Features). Cyclops catapult attacks are applied with Basic Ballistics skill.
As a strong, ranged creature, the cyclops is capable of causing great damage, providing support for units like the behemoth. During sieges, attacking the walls can help attack siege towers, destroying them as quickly as possible, evening out the field, but it's a choice between attacking walls and attacking enemies.
- Yog is a specialist in cyclopses, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after sixth level.
