Horned Overseers are slow and sturdy creatures who can withstand great amounts of damage. These beasts can "implode" in a surge of primal chaos energy, doing great harm to all creatures around them.OffBck

The horned overseer is the upgrade of the horned demon, the second-level creature of the Inferno in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

This upgrade gives it some increased stats, and a very useful ability. Send the overseer to the weaker members of the enemy army, and use Explosion to watch them burn.


  • Demonic - This creature belongs to Inferno. The Chain shot (Succubus Mistress ability) does not affect it but it is vulnerable to Holy Word spell.
  • Enraged - This creature's Attack increases during combat when any stack of friendly units dies (except resurrected creatures or creatures summoned on battlefield by magic). The increase is proportional to the killed stack relative power in the army.
  • Explosion - Creature damages all creatures around itself, but not itself (activated ability). Like a spell, damage dealt by Explosion depends on the effective Spell Power of the stack: Damage=9+9*Power.
