Age of Empires Series Wiki

The Lion-Tailed Macaque is the weakest Treasure Guardian in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties, weaker than both the Snow Monkey and the Tibetan Macaque.

Like the two others, they are usually found in groups, up to ten Guardians for a single Treasure.


The Asian Dynasties[]

Definitive Edition[]

  • The Lion-Tailed Macaque has 65 hit points.


  • The reason the Lion-Tailed Macaque had increased hit points in the Definitive Edition was to balance the Eagle Eye ability of the Haudenosaunee War Chief, as previously this ability instantly killed the Lion-Tailed Macaque, as it had 60 hit points.


Scientific Name: Macaca silenus
Approx. Size: 42 in. with tail, 15-33 lb.
Diet: Fruits, leaves, buds, seeds, insects, small birds and mammals

The lion-tailed macaque is a social monkey found in one remote region of the world, the rainforest canopy of India’s West Ghat Mountains. They live in small sholas, or patches of evergreen forest, at elevations ranging between 2,000 and 3,500 feet.

The lion-tailed macaque gets its name from the tuft of hair tipping its long, droopy tail. It is coated with smooth black hair that allows it to move undetected through the shadowy treetops. Its face is framed with a large gray mane that often gives the monkey’s head an enlarged appearance.

Lion-tailed macaques travel in groups of ten to twenty, picking up food as they go and storing it in their cheeks. Later, they rub the backs of their hands against their cheeks to extract the stored food.
