Beresad is a powerful black dragon with a strong lust for gold. He is a minor antagonist in Kingdom Rush Frontiers, a recruitable mercenary in Kingdom Rush Origins, and a hero in Kingdom Rush Vengeance. He makes a cameo appearance in Legends of Kingdom Rush.

This article is about the adult dragon in Kingdom Rush: Frontiers. For the baby dragon in Kingdom Rush: Origins, see Young Beresad.

Beresad is a black dragon that appears in Beresad's Lair, the thirteenth level in Kingdom Rush: Frontiers.


Beresad is first seen sleeping at the opening of a cave inside his lair. Behind him is an enormous pile of gold. He cannot be attacked.

Beresad wakes up during the following waves:

(* When next waves are called instantly, a few wakeups can be skipped.)

Beresad will occasionally open his eyes and puff out smoke, then go back to sleep. During the specified waves however, he will take flight after opening his eyes and fly over one of the four 'lines' of Strategic Points on the map, breathing green fire onto them. He will then return to the entrance of his cave and go back to sleep. Any tower hit by the green fire is disabled for 6 seconds, and towers cannot be built on strategic points that are on fire.

When Beresad is busy disabling towers, it is possible to steal Gold from his hoard. A maximum of 100 gold can be stolen. Clicking the hoard once will give all 100 gold, however, it is advised to do this as soon as Beresad takes flight because if he comes back it will be interrupted.


  • Beresad cannot disable Melee Towers and the Battle-Mecha T200. It is not possible to upgrade, move the rally points or respawn the soldiers of the towers hit by the green fire, but the soldiers/mecha themselves are not affected.
  • If a tower is upgraded directly before getting burnt, it will become immune to disabling for a split second. Use your reflexes!

Beresad's devastating power could only be surpassed by his colossal greed. A promise of all the treasures held in the Dwarven Kingdom was all it took to secure this ancient dragon's dreaded might for Vez'nan's campaign.

Beresad Skill.png AVARICE

Enemies killed by Beresad generate extra gold. (The description is misleading on mobile.) Specifically, each killed enemy grants two gold more than usual. The effect is as insignificant as it seems; Beresad's real power lies in his other abilities.
  • The gold bonus from Avarice is not triggered by kills with Hellfire.
  • Beresad has the ability to fly, and is not forced to stay on the road.
