“The arena is a certified butterfly-free zone. No distractions for P.E.K.K.A, only destruction.”

The Mini P.E.K.K.A. card is unlockable from the Training Camp (Tutorial). He is a single-target, melee troop with moderate hitpoints and high damage. A Mini P.E.K.K.A card costs 4 Elixir to deploy. He wears gray metal armor and wields a huge sword. His horns are a bright vivid team color, along with his single eye.

Strategy

  • If ignored, the Mini P.E.K.K.A. can devastate a Tower by dealing high damage to or even destroying it.
  • Due to his cheap four Elixir cost, he has one of the best, if not the best, cost-to-damage ratios of all troops.
  • He can be used in affiliation with high hitpoint troops, such as the Giant, so that the Giant takes the oncoming hits while the Mini P.E.K.K.A. deals damage. This combo can destroy towers very quickly if not countered, such as with swarms.
  • A Mini P.E.K.K.A can defeat an equivalent-level Musketeer, Wizard or Electro Wizard in one hit for a quick and easy positive value trade.
  • Because of the various counters to the Mini P.E.K.K.A., it is not effective to send one down the lane by himself, as this usually results in a waste of four Elixir. However, if the opponent happens to be low on Elixir, then this is strategy is capable of devastating the opponent's tower.
  • Defensively, the Mini P.E.K.K.A. can be used to easily annihilate a great variety of enemy troops (for example the Giant and Musketeer) due to his high damage output and low cost.
    • With the help of an Arena Tower, a Mini P.E.K.K.A. placed near the center of the map can stop Elite Barbarians for a positive Elixir trade.
    • A Mini P.E.K.K.A. is an amazing counter to a Hog Rider, only allowing one hit on the tower and when placed on the middle tile between the Arena tower and the bridge while the Hog is crossing the bridge, can completely stop it with minimal or no damage.
  • When placed correctly, a Bomber, Archers, Fire Spirits and Spear Goblins are capable of eliminating a Mini P.E.K.K.A. for a positive Elixir trade.
  • He is weak against swarm units, like Skeletons or Goblins.
    • To counter this weakness, one can pair the Mini P.E.K.K.A. with a Valkyrie as they cover each other's weaknesses. The Mini P.E.K.K.A is weak to swarms of lower hitpoint troops while the Valkyrie cannot take out high hitpoint troops. They are, however, both vulnerable to air troops like Minions, so back them up with troops that target air, like the Executioner or Wizard. The Fire Spirits work exceptionally well, as they will quickly eliminate the Minions or a Minion Horde for only 2 Elixir more. They are easily countered by separating them from each other.
  • A quick and deadly combo is the Miner and Mini P.E.K.K.A. The Miner takes the shots while the Mini P.E.K.K.A. does the damage. This can easily take a Tower. Additionally, due to the cheapness of this combo, it is very widely used. However, it can be countered with a Skeleton Army, if your opponent splits the Skeleton Army (one portion of the Skeleton Army goes for the Miner while the other Skeletons distract the Mini P.E.K.K.A.). Many players tend to use small units against the Mini P.E.K.K.A., so use this habit to your advantage by assisting it with an area damage spell or a splash damage troop, such as Fire Spirits or Princess.
  • If the player places a Mini P.E.K.K.A. behind a Giant Skeleton it will not only push it towards the crown tower faster, it will also deal heavy damage to the Tower. The Giant Skeleton can act as a tank and his bomb may help clear away swarms while the Mini P.E.K.K.A. disposes of any high-medium health troops. However, this combo is very weak to high-damage cards, like the Sparky, P.E.K.K.A., or Skeleton Army (if deployed surrounding the Mini P.E.K.K.A.).

History

  • The Mini P.E.K.K.A was released with Clash Royale's soft launch on 4/1/16.
  • On 9/2/16, the Chest Rewards & Card Balance Update increased the Mini P.E.K.K.A.'s hitpoints by 3%.
  • On 3/5/16, the May 2016 Update allowed him to be affected by pushback. The Mini P.E.K.K.A.'s sound effect when deployed was also changed. The sound effect now sounds like "Pancakes", and a tweet by the Clash Royale official Twitter account implied that that was the correct interpretation. It had an IRL Mini P.E.K.K.A. standing next to a Giant Skeleton, with the caption "Who wants pancakes?".
  • On 11/8/17, a Balance Update increased the Mini P.E.K.K.A.'s damage by 4.6%.

Trivia

  • His description is a reference to the Clash of Clans P.E.K.K.A. commercial.
  • Even though his description states that the arena is a butterfly-free zone, a butterfly can be seen flying in the Training Camp (Tutorial) picture.
  • He is one of the two troops that are "miniature" versions of another troop in Clash of Clans (Mini P.E.K.K.A. - P.E.K.K.A. and Baby Dragon - Dragon).
  • When compared to the regular P.E.K.K.A., the Mini P.E.K.K.A. has less health, moves faster and is significantly cheaper, but its damage per hit and damage per second are similar. On looks alone, he has a different color scheme in its picture, and also only has one eye.
  • A reference to the Mini P.E.K.K.A.'s deployment sound of "Pancakes" can be found in the trailer for the Crown Duel tournament.
  • The Mini P.E.K.K.A.'s health is the same as an equal level Balloon's damage.
  • The Mini P.E.K.K.A.'s damage per hit is exactly the same as the health of an equivalent level Wizard or Musketeer.
