Not to be confused with Kobolds (Regular) or Kobolds (Flying)

Kobolts are Chaos Enemies that make their first appearance in Chaos 7.


Kobolts are EMP variants of Kobold Fliers, added in the Spring Forward Update along with the Hex Thrower. They closely resemble Fliers, but are charged with electricity, like Cyborks. Similar to the Kobold Fliers, they divebomb into defenses to deal massive damage when they take enough damage, or if a particular defense or Hero draws their aggro. Kobolts will target Towers if they are close by, ignoring Blockades, Auras, and Traps. If the Defenses survive the attack, they will be stunned for 20-30 seconds, similarly to Cybork attacks. Notably, they spawn on ground lanes instead of air lanes, but can still fly over defenses.

Boss Variant

The mini-boss variant for the Kobolt is the Zapper. The Zapper behaves similarly to the Kobolt with the exception of the massive EMP radius, capable of damaging the core even from spawn in smaller maps. It is also unable to be stunned.


Since Kobolts tend to stay on lane, and target defenses, it is recommended that Blockades are used to tank the damage, or if you can kill them quickly with Defenses and Hero burst damage. Try to space other defending towers from your Blockades so that the EMPs will not disable them.

The Zapper mini-boss will target Towers over other defenses, so it is recommended to use Auras, and Traps to quickly kill it before it can aggro and detonate onto other towers. Removing other nearby Towers may help to keep the Zapper on track.
