The mermaid is a second-level creature, connected to the Stronghold in Heroes of Might and Magic IV. It cannot be acquired in-game, only added in the Scenario Editor.

Mermaids have a chance of hypnotizing their opponents, giving them control of their target for one turn. They are also immune to the Charm and Diplomacy skills.OffBck


Mermaids are the most common sea-based creature in Heroes IV, being far more numerous - and far weaker - than the sea monster.

Their Hypnotize ability can be dangerous, so attacking them with spells or ranged creatures is the safest way to deal with them.

Abilities Edit


In addition to this creature's normal attack, its Hypnotize ability has a chance of taking control of an enemy opponent for one turn.
