“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 is a Rare card that is unlocked from the Training Camp (Tutorial). It spawns a fast, single-target, ground-targeting, melee ground troop with high hitpoints and very high damage. He is clothed in gray metal armour and wields a smaller version of the P.E.K.K.A's sword. He wears a helmet with team-colored horns and a single team-colored eye. A Mini P.E.K.K.A card costs 4 Elixir to deploy.

  • Like the Prince, he is best used defensively against single troops and then for a counterattack due to his slow attack speed but very high damage.
  • He can be used with high hitpoint troops, such as the Giant or Golem, so that they tank all of the damage dealt by opposing units while the Mini P.E.K.K.A deals massive damage to them. However, this strategy is very vulnerable to swarm cards, so it should be used cautiously and with spells whenever possible.
  • A Mini P.E.K.K.A can defeat equally levelled Musketeers, Wizards, Electro Wizards, Ice Wizards, Princesses, and Magic Archers in one hit for a similar Elixir cost, making him useful for quickly taking out these troops behind a tank.
    • It can also defeat most support troops in two hits, and coupled with its high speed, the Mini P.E.K.K.A can be considered as an anti-tank and anti-support. Because of this, against a tank and support push, it is more effective to deploy the Mini P.E.K.K.A on the support troop instead of the tank, so that he can eliminate it, saving more of his hitpoints for a counterpush.
  • Skeletons, placed at a certain distance, are capable of eliminating a Mini P.E.K.K.A with the help of a Crown Tower.
    • To do this, the defender should place the Skeletons in the center of the Arena, slightly staggered to the opposite lane of the attacking Mini P.E.K.K.A. The Mini P.E.K.K.A. would be effectively stalled and would be chipped down by both Crown Towers. Even a Skeletons + Ice Spirit can be used.
  • Area damage units and spells complement the Mini P.E.K.K.A and its synergies well since its slow hit speed is ineffective versus swarms. Slower and tankier area damage units like a Valkyrie should be placed in front of the Mini P.E.K.K.A, so it can push them forward more quickly, while they tank for the Mini P.E.K.K.A faster and more fragile area damage units like the Fire Spirit should be placed behind it, so it can protect them.
  • Due to the many positive Elixir trades that can be made on a Mini P.E.K.K.A, it is generally not effective to send one down the lane by itself, as this usually results in a waste of 4 Elixir. However, if the opponent happens to be low on Elixir or lacks a cheap counter, then this strategy is capable of dealing major damage to the opponent's Crown Tower or can force a bad trade.
  • The player should never ignore a Mini P.E.K.K.A in the opposite lane, as it can easily deal massive damage or even destroy a Crown Tower if not dealt with.
  • 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 for the relatively low cost of 4 Elixir.
    • With the help of a Crown Tower, a Mini P.E.K.K.A placed near the center of the map can stop Elite Barbarians for a positive Elixir trade.
    • If a Prince does not manage to charge in time, a Mini P.E.K.K.A. can defeat him for a positive Elixir trade. However, if the Prince is on the Mini P.E.K.K.A's side, even a charging Prince with not be able to take out the Mini P.E.K.K.A with the help of the Crown Tower.
    • A Mini P.E.K.K.A is a great counter to the Hog Rider, allowing only allowing one hit on the Tower if not placed in a proper position.
      • If the player has an idea of when and where the opponent will send in their Hog Rider, they can hover their Mini P.E.K.K.A in the middle of the lane and deploy it the instant the opponent places the Hog Rider. Doing this will completely shut him down.
      • If the Hog Rider is accompanied by fast grounded units like Skeletons or Goblins, the Mini P.E.K.K.A may retarget onto them, disrupting the player's defense. Using a spell to quickly destroy the Skeletons so that the Mini P.E.K.K.A can help defeat the Hog Rider is recommended, even if it is a negative Elixir trade, as the Hog Rider will get much more damage for only a small Elixir advantage otherwise.
  • A quick and deadly combo is the Miner paired with the Mini P.E.K.K.A. The Miner tanks all the damage while the Mini P.E.K.K.A does the damage. This can easily take a Tower. However, it can be fully countered with a Skeleton Army if the Skeleton Army is played early enough (i.e., 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; the player can use this habit to their advantage by assisting it with an area damage spell or a splash damage troop, such as a Fire Spirit or Princess.

  • The acronym for P.E.K.K.A doesn't officially stand for anything in particular originally.

The name "Perfectly Enraged Knight Killer of Assassins" was the winner. The person who submitted the acronym was called Víctor in the Facebook announcement.
