Little John is an infantry hero available in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. He is based on a legendary fellow English outlaw of Robin Hood with the same name, serving as his chief lieutenant and second-in-command of the Merry Men.
In the game, Little John has the appearance of a Spearman. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health. Like other infantry units, he is affected by all upgrades that affect infantry as well as any other bonuses that affect them.
Despite the attack of 7 that is shown in the unit infobox, Little John actually only has 3 base attack in the HD version, just like regular Spearmen. This was fixed in the Definitive Edition.
