In the first series of Age of Empires, Hero Archimedes is a unit only available and seen in the Scenario Editor and the campaign mode of the game. Unlike other units in the game, Hero Archimedes does not attack. Instead, the unit simply just walks whenever the opponent moves towards his Line of Sight.

The unit starts out with 25 hit points, no attack, no armour and little to no line of sight. The unit appears to be in the form of a priest but does not have the ability to heal or convert enemy units. In Rise of Rome, there is a glitch where the unit initiates an "attack" that deals only 1 damage to an enemy unit. The bug is not fixed and apparently, the unit is not supposed to attack other units. This special unit is used in quests and missions rather than in normal games.
