Troops are non-playable characters that you can order around – using the Command button – to aid you in battle. Unlike Little Fighter 2, which trends more to the street fighting genre, Hero Fighter is more battle oriented with a bigger number and more variety of troops, as well as more commands to order them around. As such, troops and strategy play an important role to win the game.
Soldiers are generally weaker than heroes, but benefit in numbers. Aside from lower damage and speed, they all can only block half of what a Hero can normally.
