"Sand Warriors" is a uncommon enemy encountered in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Official Description

"The Sand Creatures with the metal meat hooks are very similar to their chain-swinging brethren. They oftentimes use their weapon to block a second sword swing during a vaulting attack, but they can't slam the Prince to the ground. This enemy is quick and can attack at close range with their weapon of choice. However, they can often wait to strike until the Prince is distracted by larger, deadlier foes."
—Official Booklet Description[1]


These foes were perhaps once inhabitants Azad's palace, before being transformed by the Sands of Time. They carry a sword as a weapon, and often attack in groups to make up for their lack of strength. Luckily, they can be easily defeated by any of the Prince's attacks.



The Sand Warrior is one of the easiest enemies in the game. They normally do not attack more than once and will fall susceptible to most of the Prince's attacks. Any advanced moves will knock it down immediately.
