Abraha Elephant is a cavalry hero found in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. He is based on the Ethiopian ruler Abraha al-Ashram of the Himyarite Kingdom in modern-day Yemen, who is best known for the failed invasion of Mecca during the middle of the sixth century.
Abraha Elephant is represented by a War Elephant, which is a reference to the hundreds of elephants used during the invasion of Mecca and its immortalization in Islamic tradition as the story of the people of the elephant in the Qur'an. Like other cavalry units, Abraha Elephant is affected by all upgrades that affect cavalry, as well as any civilization bonuses that affect them. As with all heroes, Abraha Elephant can self regenerate and cannot be converted.
While regular War Elephants deal 50% of their damage as trample damage, Abraha Elephant deals full damage to all adjacent units and buildings, making him even more powerful.
