Please identify which of these data pages are for the card this page is supposed to cover. Data:Cards/Batterhead(75953), Data:Cards/Batterhead(90588) Once it is identified, please edit this page and use the |datapage parameter on {{Card infobox}} to ensure data is pulled from the correct page.

As an example, if the correct data page is Data:Cards/Barrel(376), then this page would need {{Card infobox|datapage=Barrel(376)}} to ensure it finds the correct page.

Batterhead can be obtained through Rise of Shadows card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Batterhead 400 100

  • If Batterhead attacks, leaving it exhausted, but kills a minion from a spell such as Mass Hysteria, it can attack again.[1]
  • If Batterhead kills multiple minions with one attack (Ex. with Sweeping Strikes), it only gains one additional attack.[2]


Batterhead is best against flood - type decks such as token druid. It can be used as a budget Baron Geddon. Play it when the opponent has nearly a full board for maximum value.

Batterhead is unique to Hearthstone. He is one of the henchmen of the League of E.V.I.L., and while not very smart, he has a very thick head and serves as the muscle of the operation.[3]


  • Because of Batterhead's interactions with cards like Spirit of the Rhino, it went through a number of iterations during development. An early prototype known as "Kobold Batterhead" had Rush and "Battlecry: Unlimited attacks this turn". A second iteration featured Rush and the text "After this attacks a minion, it may attack again". These iterations led to the final version of Batterhead, which is meant to fill a similar role to Primordial Drake from the Journey to Un'Goro set.[3]
