Patch Notes 3.8

Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 3.8

Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 3.8 Update! This release features The Horned King from Disney’s The Black Cauldron plus a number of improvements and bug fixes.


  • New! The Horned King from Disney’s The Black Cauldron!
  • Bug fixes and game improvements!

The Horned King

The Horned King is a back-line “Control” character on the Yellow team. The Horned King will be the April Sign-In Hero!


Cauldron Born

The Horned King summons a Cauldron Born soldier from the Black Cauldron. Each soldier has Max HP, Reality, and Armor. Soldiers deal Fantastic Damage with their Basic Attacks. The Horned King can have up to X soldiers at a time. If the Horned King uses this Skill while he has the maximum amount of soldiers, he grants the soldier with the lowest HP a percent more Max HP and heals it to full HP. Cauldron Born soldiers count as allies and target the closest enemy to them when they spawn.

Wicked Cackle

The Horned King cackles, Scaring all enemies for a few seconds and applying stacks of Fatigue.


Green mist comes out of the Black Cauldron, Healing all of the Horned King’s soldiers. The Horned King and allies deal bonus Fantastic Damage with their Basic Attacks for X seconds.

Dark and Powerful

Soldiers deal bonus Fantastic Damage with their Basic Attacks for each other ally soldier on the battlefield.

Thirst for Evil

Soldiers gain bonus Max HP for each other ally soldier on the battlefield. Soldiers Healed by “Arise!” also gain Attack Speed for X seconds. When an enemy is KO’d, the Horned King raises a soldier. A soldier can be raised this way once every X seconds.

Battle Badge

  • Charge Condition: Allies get KO’d
  • Stat Buff: +Skill Power
  • Lineup Buff: +Max HP per Control Ally
  • Effect Buff: Energy Gain


  • Disgust
  • Shan Yu

Hero Improvements & Bug Fixes

  • Added Kronk’s emojis to the game!

  • Fixed an issue with Pete where his purple skill would cause his basic attack to do damage even when he was blinded.
  • Fixed an issue with Ariel where if she gets turned around she gets stuck that way and her attacks miss
  • Kronk’s trap door could activate on an ally in the case where the enemy stole a Reflect buff from an ally and was then damaged.
  • Fixed an issue where Kaa would not return to the battle after being removed by Kronk’s trapdoor
  • Fixed an issue with Kaa appearing in front of the text on the hero information screen

Other Improvements

  • Added a notification to let you know 1 hour before any Premium Stamina is set to expire.
  • When tapping on a hero on the “Heroes in Filter” screen, it will now go directly to the Skill Tags Tab

  • Fixed an issue where tapping on a Locked Hero from the “Heroes in Filter” screen would cause the window to close.
  • We’re adding a limit to the max Trials and Port difficulty that is available. It will be tied to the current max rank on the server. As new ranks are released new difficulties of Port and Trials will be available. You will be able to keep access to all Trials up to the highest difficulty you have already cleared. Nothing will be removed if you have already cleared a level that is above the new limits.
  • Fixed some display issues with iPhone 5 and Samsung S20 HD+

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where there were duplicate heroes in the same wave of the opponent team in the friendship campaign
  • Fixed an issue where some friendship dialogue was missing from the wall
  • Fixed an issue where player power could display as a negative number on the rankings screens
  • Fixed an issue where some Memory Disk art was scaling incorrectly on the disk screen
  • Fixed a bug where the number of challenges completed was different between the book count and the summary.

Huh, I wonder if PerBlue got ideas from my Horned King concept and integrated them in the game.

@Loutre when will the double cap increase on server 18 stop??!!!
You are literally begging people to stop playing and then wondering why.

Once again this translates to: Players have too much resources, time to force them to pay so we can get moneyyy.



this is common and i think polaris did say they take inspiration from concepts


Certainly seems so… not like most of us need every resource we can get.


I almost screamed at one moment :no_mouth:

So it’s like returning back, when new difficulties appeared only with new ranks?

No shop lag fixes? Sad, those were short but good times.


Is it this single photo emoji or are there more @Loutre? If so why not the rest in photos? :thinking:

That’s it? I was expecting a little bigger of an update then just the sign in.

Ooh, very happy to see The Black Cauldron getting some love and appreciation, and with the leading villain no less! I like how his kit is Distract-based, considering he has summoned soldiers acting as decoys. I wonder how a Friendship with The Queen of Hearts would’ve been like, considering they both command impressive soldier ranks

@Loutre Not sure if this has been covered, but there’s a possible bug in the game - whenever Ariel heals Jim Hawkins with her Green skill, it activates Jim’s Purple counterattack, thus hurting Ariel in the process. If it hasn’t been addressed yet, can it be addressed in a future update, please?

Yeah the Prize wall hero is missing

There will be another post for that hero.


I do agree

Ok thanks then

Why do you bother making separate posts? You are just making extra work for yourself.
