Some of the Sultan's Janissaries left their ranks in search of their own fame and glory. These warriors are extremely tough and steadfast, having composed the backbone of the Ottoman army during their service. Since they live for honor, they hate the cowards in towers!
Janissary is a very handy mercenary, very low hiring time and very cheap. These mercenaries are useful in all levels and even in endgame. Janissary are used mostly to lure out Khamikazee that are in the Watch Post, this way the important mercenaries or the attacking beast won't be blown to piece by the Khamikazees. Janissary is also a good city defender, you can have up to 66 of these mercenaries in each Watch Post, they can swarm and slow down any ground attackers with their huge numbers and slow movement speed. They are often used as a distraction to an attacking Wom-Kong slowing the Kong drastically.
