Phoenix info
“A true friend will egg you on when things get rough. Phoenix starts the battle as a helpless egg, but at the moment her Hero might go down, she hatches. The furious fiery fowl then gives temporary invulnerability to its Hero and engages nearby enemies.”

Phoenix field Phoenix egg
Level 1-10 Egg


  • Phoenix is the eighth pet unlocked, unlocked when the Pet House is upgraded to level 8 (this requires Town Hall level 15).
  • When initially deployed, Phoenix will start the battle as an egg, which does nothing but is invulnerable and cannot be targeted in this form. Once her Hero is initially knocked out however, she will hatch and revive the Hero, giving them both temporary invincibility for a short period, and then begin attacking as an air unit.
  • Phoenix prioritizes the target that the Hero that Phoenix is paired to is currently targeting. If the Hero is knocked out or removed from battle by a Recall Spell, Phoenix behaves like a troop with no preferential target; they will attack the nearest building to them regardless of type, and will turn and attack enemy units if they become aware of any nearby and can fight back against them.
  • The revived Hero will be immediately knocked out once the invincibility period ends, even if they do not take any damage during this period. They also cannot be healed during this period of invincibility.
  • If the Hero did not use their ability before being initially knocked out, they can use it while being revived. However, they do not gain any health regeneration if activated during this period, and may be knocked out mid-ability if the invincibility period expires. Similarly, if the Hero was midway through their ability when knocked out, their ability will continue through the revival period.
    • If "Activate Hero Abilities on KO" is turned on in the settings, the Hero ability will be activated first before the Phoenix can attempt to revive them.


Offensive Strategy

  • Phoenix can be used to extend the lifetime of the Hero that she is paired to, allowing them to wreak more havoc. Heroes with a low survivability rate like the Royal Champion, or any hero used for Sui strategies, can prove a useful match. Pairing her with the Grand Warden is also a good idea, since it can extend the duration of his Life Aura ability; however, his survivability is generally quite high because of his staying behind other units and as such usually only revives when most other units are already dead.
  • Phoenix's revive ability can be used as a safety net for Heroes like the Archer Queen, keeping them alive for a brief period should they be knocked out unexpectedly. This can be useful for Hero walks/charges that may fail if the hero is defeated prematurely by defenses and enemy Clan Castle troops.
  • Pairing the Phoenix with the Barbarian King allows it to extend your funnel to help with your main army and allows it to destroy more buildings. Additionally, during King Walks around the base, it will give it that extra HP it needs, and in the middle of a base, it can give a extra few seconds of being a tank before the paired hero is knocked out.

Defensive Strategy

  • It requires 2-3 Seeking Air Mines (at higher levels, only requires 2) to destroy the Phoenix quickly before she can get much value, but only after her invincibility duration expires.

  • The Phoenix was later released in Clash Royale as a Legendary Card the same month it came to Clash of Clans. There, it has very similar mechanics; it is deployed alive and when destroyed, becomes an egg which hatches into another Phoenix. Despite what many believe, the two Phoenixes are in fact different, as they have slightly different designs.
  • At the end of the animated info screen, the Phoenix fails to destroy all the buildings when she is paired with the Barbarian King.
    • That is why since the Town Hall 16 update, the paired Barbarian King does not have Hero Equipment equipped in the Phoenix info screen.
      • Before the update, the Barbarian King's Barbarians were able to take down the multi-target Inferno Tower with the help of the Phoenix.
