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.

Official Description

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 and limited range, 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 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.

Squire's Costumes

Redux Costumes

  • Super Legendary Crystal Knight


While Squire/Countess weapons can spawn with over-capped 100% Damage Reduction when blocking, they do not allow the user to heal off of blocked attacks.


  • 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.
