"Filthy human, you will die like all your kind!"

Raiders are a common enemy encountered in the Warrior Within.

Official Description

"Built from the remains of hapless pirates and merchants lured to the Island of Time. Raiders are mostly common fodder for the Empress' army. These simple sand creatures are not particularly dangerous on their own; however, it is rare to encounter a lone Raider, as they often travel in packs. On some occasions, they are joined by the more powerful Keepers and Executioners."
—Official Booklet Description[1]


Along with Keepers, these warriors make up the bulk of the Empress of Time's Sand army. They appear as large men dressed in red robes and bear the island's symbol on their back. They protect the fortress, and attempt to bar trespassers entrance to the Fortress of Time. They often attack the Prince in groups. They are trained swordsmen and can break the Prince's guard in three swift attacks.[2]

The Raiders are first encountered in one of towers of the Fortress: The Mechanical Tower, Garden and Water Tower, where the Prince must unlock mechanism keeping the Throne Room doors closed.



Raiders are capable of pulling off sophisticated and synchronized battle tactics against the player. They will surround the player and attack from multiple directions at the same time. Raiders are capable pulling off a three-hit combo that deplete the players lifebar if given the opportunity. However, their weakness lies in their reaction time. When the raider attempts to strike the player with kick, players can avoid Raider's attacking by parrying or blocking.

When surrounded by pack of Raiders, using combos like Azad's Retaliation and Rage of Darius will knock them all down, especially if wielding a mace that has the capability knock the enemies to the floor.


  • According the enemy video that is unlockable in the video gallery for Warrior Within, Raiders are named "Keepers".[3] In the official strategy guide, they're referred to as "Raiders".[1]
