Dark Raiders are the backbone of the armies of Ygg-Chall. They are well-trained, armoured warriors, mounted on great lizards, who ride into battle with a heavy lance and shield. Speed is their main weapon, and the damage they wreak with their lances depends on the distance over which they accelerate.OffBck

The dark raider is the fourth-level creature of the Dungeon in Heroes of Might and Magic V. Cavalry units riding fearsome lizards, their speed and initiative are quite good.

The Rider Charge ability reduces the enemy Defence by 20% for every tile this creature moves before striking, which is great for taking down heavily armored enemies.

It can be upgraded to the grim raider (or alternatively, in Tribes of the East, the brisk raider).
