Mongo is the campaign hero for the Barbarian Hordes campaign. The use of that hero requires The Winds of War expansion pack.


In Barbarian Hordes, Mongo starts as a fairly powerful barbarian. The player will probably end up ignoring his nobility and develop him as a General, a Paladin, a Ranger or a Battle Mage, based on the magic skills that will become available through the campaign. Mastering Combat and Archery will be critical to success in the Expert and Champion difficulty settings.

His name and in-game description may be a reference to the character of Mongo from the film Blazing Saddles, who states that "Mongo only pawn in game of life".
