This article is about the boss in Kingdom Rush. For the unit in Kingdom Rush: Vengeance, see Shop.

The Juggernaut is the first boss in Kingdom Rush, encountered at The Citadel. He often fires missiles and summons Golem Heads.


A mindless unstoppable machine of destruction. The Juggernaut obliterates any army that tries to stop him.

The Juggernaut punching an Imperial Guard.

The Juggernaut doesn't have much going for him beyond being a construct while his minions, unique to his fight, can be spawned via cluster bombs anywhere on the map that isn't past the 3 Imperial Guards at the top, with decent stats going for them. He has one particular key problem: well-upgraded Paladins can put him in a melee lock loop. The Juggernaut does have an area attack and a long-range missile launcher, but they don't do enough damage to wreck fully upgraded Paladins. This isn't too bad, though, because he's the first boss. He is not supposed to be very difficult, but to show the player how important it is to focus on a combination of stalling and sheer dps to take on extremely durable enemies.


  • The Juggernaut enters the map from the right, so concentrate your towers in this area.
  • Make sure that you have towers near the top of the map. The Juggernaut's Golem Heads often spawn very close to the castle. Using Arcane Wizards with teleport is also a good tactic to stall Golem Heads, as they can send all of them back in the path.
  • Whenever you get the chance, place reinforcements near the Juggernaut. Even if he destroys them with one strike, they will slow him down.
  • If the player is using a durable melee hero like Gerald or Malik, they are almost useless against the Golem Heads and should be used to tank against the boss instead.
  • The Juggernaut prioritizes the Imperial Guards with its missile.

  • The 500mm Big Bertha's special abilities Dragonbreath Launcher and Cluster Missile Xtreme operate very similarly to the Juggernaut's weapons, implying that it was the result of reverse engineering the Juggernaut.
  • When playing The Citadel on Heroic Challenge or Iron Challenge, the Juggernaut's head/helmet is mounted on a pike outside the castle walls.
