|“||The bane of Rome and champion of Carthage. It is unlikely there has been, or ever will be a better general than Hannibal "Lightning" Barca||”|
Hero Hannibal is a Hero in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome, available only to the Scenario Editor and the Campaign mode of the game. It is a siege cavalry unit and has an appearance of an Armored Elephant although the icon is similar to those of a War Elephant. Just like any other unit trained from the Stable, the stats can be upgraded as with a normal War Elephant. The unit moves slightly faster than an ordinary War Elephant and also has additional range as well as more armor and deals a higher damage. Since the unit is not available in normal games, the Phoenician bonus for cheaper Elephant units have no effect towards this unit since it cannot be trained by any means. Keep in mind that this unit is still vulnerable to enemy conversion as it is considered an Elephant unit.
