The harpy is the second-level creature of the Dungeon faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the harpy loft. The harpy can be upgraded to the harpy hag.

Harpies—half-women/half-vulture in appearance—have the a swooping attack that returns them to the hex they started from.OffBck

The harpy is a useful flying unit, providing support for other front-line fighters. The Strike and return ability is not that useful, since the enemy can still retaliate. In fact, it actually makes it harder to block enemy archers, as the harpy has to land next to the enemy archers, rather than attack them.


  • Lorelei is a specialist in harpies, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after second level. These creatures also get +1 to Speed.
