Some sort of colonial Titan kinda thing

—In-game description

George Crushington is a cheat unit in Age of Empires III. He is one of the most powerful units in the game (along with The Tommynator). He attacks by banging his head on soldiers in melee combat, crushing enemy units under him (for trample attack), and blowing fire at buildings during a siege.

The unit is a large stone bust, and resembles a figure of George Washington. Its description reads: "Check in your wallet. That's me on the dollar bill." a reference to one of the in-game taunts. He also says this whenever he blows fire. When killed, it crashes to the ground.

Trivia[]

  • The summon cheat code, "where's that axe?", refers to the myth of George Washington chopping down a cherry tree in his youth.
  • Crushington's voice is low-pitch version of George Washington.
  • Upon rolling over "George Crushington's" icon image, it will display the unit's cost: 7 food, 4 wood, 1776 coin. This refers to July 4, 1776, the date upon which the Independence of the United States was declared.
  • When Crushington attacks enemy units, comic book-style fight bubbles will appear over the attacked unit, with phrases such as "Zoinks!", "Ooof!", "Pow!", and "Ka-blam!", among others. These are likely references to the 1960s television series Batman, based on the DC Comics superhero of the same name.
  • When Crushington is summoned, a tuba is heard playing the first notes of "The Star Spangled Banner", the American national anthem.
