There are many characters, both good and bad, in the world of Orcs Must Die. Most of them bad.

The War Mage

Impulsive, stubborn, and not the sharpest tool in the shed, he’s far from the Order’s best and brightest. But these days, with so many rift fortresses to protect from the orc mob, everyone with any magical ability at all is needed on the line. If he’s the last, best hope, then maybe all hope is lost. On the plus side, he loves killing orcs – and he’s really good at it.

Orc Warrior

They’re ugly, they’re dumb, they stink, and they have a terrible dental plan. They’re determined to get to the rifts, no matter what stands in the way. Clearly they must die – and fortunately they die easily and in large numbers. Just don’t get too close; their swords are rusty enough to cause a nasty case of lockjaw.

Crossbow Orc

Five brain cells smarter and a head taller than the average orc, these guys have been trained to point a crossbow at their enemies and pull the little trigger (the one by their finger). Given that orcs have the eyesight of an aged mole, their aim is pretty good. They’re more dangerous than their sword-wielding buddies; obviously, all orcs must die, but maybe these orcs should die first.

Gnoll Hunter

Sporting razor-sharp teeth, a fast loping gait, and powerful claws, Gnoll Hunters aren’t interested in getting through the rift – they’re interested in killing you! (They’re also interested in killing archers and paladins, but everyone knows tender young War Mage is the sweetest meat of all.)



The War Mage has a wide variety of tools at his disposal to assist him in Orc slaughtering. He can place devious traps on floors, walls and ceilings. Allied Archers or Paladins can be summoned to aid the War Mage in his defense. The War Mage can even use magical trinkets to shock, freeze, burn or blast the Orcs in to oblivion.


One of the signature weapons of the war mages, the crossbow is accurate at long range and has a rapid rate of fire. Experts learn to pace their shots and aim for the head for maximum orc-killing efficiency. The crossbow can also fire a special bolt that stuns small groups of enemies.

Elven Archer

Allies of the Order for centuries, the elves stand ready to come to the aid of fortresses under attack by the orc mob. Deadly accurate with their bows, elven archers are able to fire a volley of arrows in the blink of an eye. If they fall in battle, the power of the rifts will heal them when there’s a break in the action. Just tune them out if they start yammering about birds and plants and “all living things” and the rest of that treehugger nonsense.

Arrow Wall

Who doesn’t like a bunch of arrows to the face? Orcs, that’s who! Place these deadly beauties at the end of fortress corridors to cover an unguarded approach, or stick two across a hall from each other to shred a whole legion of enemies in a devastating crossfire.

Boom Barrel

Boom goes the dynamite! Drop these tasty explosive treats in tight corridors, light them up with your crossbow, then sit back and watch orc giblets paint the walls red. For maximum kill-streaky goodness, wait until large groups of enemies are clustered around a boom barrel before pulling the trigger.

Wind Belt

Harness the power of the wind and kill orcs the eco-friendly way! Shove, push, and launch them into the sharpest, pointy-est, boiling-est spots in the fortress. No matter where you blow them, you can’t go wrong!

Spring Trap                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Use the cheap and effective spring trap to launch pesky enemies through the air. Where they land is up

to you – a pool of lava, a pit full of acid, or even straight into another trap! Beware heavier enemies such as ogres who prevent the spring trap from firing.

Fire Bracers Prefer your orcs rare or medium-well? Too bad! The fire bracers can only cook an orc one way – well done! But you won’t care how overdone the meat is when an entire wave of enemies stumbles through a fire wall or burns up in a fireball’s explosion. You’ll be too busy basking in the warm glow of success.

Steam Trap Take orcs for the ride of their (short and miserable) lives with this low-cost floor trap. Blasts of warm, soothing steam not only send your enemies sky-high, but also soften up those rough orc hides just in time for a crossbow bolt to punch straight into the tender organs underneath.
