Age of Empires Series Wiki

The Mounted Samurai is a cavalry hero in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. The unit appears in the Kurikara scenario, which is part of Battles of the Forgotten.

Despite being named a Samurai, the unit takes the appearance of a Hussar. The attack bonuses are similar to that of a Samurai, in that it does bonus damage to unique units, but has a similar speed and scouting capabilities of a Hussar, making it very versatile against unique units.

Though the unit is a hero, it does not have the standard golden glow that other heroes have. Despite this, it still cannot be converted by Monks and can regenerate health.
