This article is about the boss in Kingdom Rush. For the similarly named hero in Kingdom Rush: Vengeance, see Oloch.

Moloch is the boss of the Burning Torment mini-campaign in Kingdom Rush and possibly the biggest overarching antagonist of the first Kingdom Rush.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A feared and overconfident demon overlord, he eats hot coals for breakfast!

Moloch's modest health is balanced out by his dangerously fast movement speed. Other than Vez'nan, he is the only boss to possess an area instant kill attack (other bosses only have either area attack or instant kill); and he can use it on every unit (while Earth Elementals are immune to Vez'nan's). His path is very short, and combined with his above average speed and ability to quickly clear units designed to stall him, he can easily overtake an unprepared player.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • His area instant kill has a 7 seconds cooldown. And he will use it only when there are 2 or more units near him. This can be used to the player's advantage and he can be blocked with a durable melee Hero like Gerald Lightseeker, Oni or Hacksaw (preferably Level 10) or an Earth Elemental. It is best to keep the Elemental non-upgraded and upgrade him when he's about to die, which will heal him completely. The attack is also tied to a cooldown; he will use it after about 2-3 regular attacks.
  • A barracks tower can be used to stall Moloch for a while. The soldiers should be sent against him and the tower should be upgraded when they die, which will spawn a new batch of them. One can repeat this process until Moloch kills the level 4 soldiers, then sell the tower and repeat the process.
  • He walks very fast compared to other bosses like J.T., Vez'nan, The Juggernaut, etc., so stalling him is crucial. Adequate strategies for this are listed above.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Pandaemonium, Vez'nan's soul can be seen caged next to Moloch's throne. Vez'nan later escapes, kicking off the events of Kingdom Rush: Vengeance.
  • Moloch is the name of an ancient Ammonite god.
  • It is implied that he may be Oloch's brother.
  • Moloch appears as a boss in the upcoming Kingdom Rush: Rift in Time board game.
  • In a previous steam version, the Demon Spawn's unit portrait was used in place of Moloch's. This has since been patched up.
