Shah is a hero in Age of Empires II. He is based on a generic Persian ruler. He appears in the campaign scenario The Horde Rides West and is available in the Scenario Editor.

He is essentially a renamed Middle Eastern King, and as such has no attack, but a fast movement speed and decent Line of Sight. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors).

Trivia Edit

  • Although the stat board displays his attack power as 0, he can actually attack, inflicting minimal damage on the target; however, his AI causes him to immediately flee when being attacked. While the attacking motion in the HD Edition is hard to even make out, in the original version of Age of Empires II he had a special attacking sprite which was taken from Photon Man, a cheat unit from Age of Empires.
