Lord Malagar

Lord Malagar

Lord Malagar is the sorcerer who stole Vez'nan's staff after he is defeated at the end of the original Kingdom Rush. He is the main antagonist in Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, although he is later revealed to be a mere pawn under the control of the final boss Umbra.

Stolen Staff

Taking Vez'nan's staff

After defeating Vez'nan at the end of the first Kingdom Rush campaign, his staff lays unattended on the ground. An unidentified person reaches for the staff and exclaims "Mine!" as they pick it up.

Lord Malagar stealing the Hammer of Ages

At the end of the opening stage, Lord Malagar flies out of the Hammerhold on a cloud, carrying Vez'nan's staff and the Hammer of Ages, an artifact stored within and protected by the stronghold. It's revealed that he entered the fortress and smuggled the hammer out while you were busy fighting his minions. He disables your towers with an unbreakable spell; unlike Vez'nan's previous attack; then escapes.

Releasing a god

Though mentioned in the introductions to several levels, Lord Malagar does not appear again until the very end, where he's preparing for the release of his master Umbra. He stands on a high plateau before a large crystal structure and cannot be attacked.

During this stage, Lord Malagar gains access to a very powerful attack, which deals around 200-250 damage to a small area, enough to kill all three soldiers in any Barracks, save for only the Templars. The red lightning rips huge chunks of HP out of your Hero, with weaker Heroes like Mirage or Nivus unable to survive even one shot.

The good news is that Lord Malagar rarely uses this devastating attack, at most once per wave, and he tends to fire at soldiers. He prioritizes units sitting closer to the central plateau where he stands. The closer your units are to where Lord Malagar is standing, the greater the chances of him directing his fire towards said units, to the point that those directly below the stairs underneath Malagar are almost always blasted.

When the last enemy of wave 15 is defeated, Lord Malagar finishes his ritual and Umbra is freed. The force of the explosion knocks him to the edge of the plateau. Hanging on for dear life, Lord Malagar begs for his master to save him, though Umbra simply zaps him down the abyss, to his apparent death.

After Umbra is defeated, the corrupted Tear of Elynie at the tip of Vez'nan's staff; which had been knocked off when Umbra killed Lord Malagar; is picked up by a creature with green hands and suction cups at the fingertips, saying "Mine!" in the Alienese language from Futurama.



  • Lord Malagar's words at the beginning of the stage echo the words of Mactans and Malicia when they corrupted the Tear of Elynie many years ago.
