A brave knight‐in‐training, the Squire upholds the honor and nobility of his kingdom with every slice of his blade. Building defenses of brute force, the Squire prefers melee weapons as his instruments of justice. Bludgeoning spikes and whirling blades unleash the rage he bestows upon his foes.

The Squire is a warrior hero class. He is one of the four original heroes in Dungeon Defenders. He has the highest base health of all hero classes, but the slowest movement speed.


The Squire utilizes physical defenses that deal generic, non-elemental damage. All except the Harpoon Turret have a good amount of health to withstand grounded foes, however they lack attack range and cannot reliably hit flying enemies. This makes them vulnerable to being destroyed or crippled by the four Nightmare enemies.

Weapon Skills

General Damage
Melee Combo – The Squire can unleash a 4‐hit combo with each attack dealing more damage and range than the previous one except the last hit.
Blocking Resistance
Block – The Squire can raise his guard to protect from incoming frontal attacks, drastically reducing the damage he takes from them. However, he cannot move or attack while blocking.
If the damage reduction exceeds 100%, the defender will be healed.

Squire's Costumes


  • In the game's source code, a hidden function to auto-create characters was made, with 1 class for each class, the name for the Squire class character is "SirDave," found in DunDefHeroManager.uc.
  • It appears that the Squire is in his underwear in his overall appearance. The Tavernkeep insists that someone should buy him some pants. The unlockable costume "Pants" gives the Squire leggings armor.
