And still there are others whose only existence is to be a warning to everyone. Case and point: who would attack with nothing but Hog Riders in Clash of Clans? I mean, honestly? The answer to that question, of course, is Galadon. Recently, his numerous fans have been asking him to come up with crazy, single-unit assaults to hilarious effect. After all, what is the point of having a digital army if you cannot send them to their doom and then laugh about it?

Hog Riders are a support unit at best, they're not an overwhelming favorite but when you need a defensive structure taken down, they are your go-to guy. They focus specifically on enemy defenses, unlike nearly every other unit in the game which - as demonstrated during Galadon's third attack - just hit whatever the hell they want.
