"Uh... I dunno! There was this kid who's in danger, I went over there, and then suddenly a Golem appears! Shoulda brought an Eagle Artillery!"
Barbarian King is a character who was introduced in The room of My Singing Monsters . He's a large swordsman who's very powerful, but also a huge goofball. He specializes in Melee weapons, and stays with Lucas most of the time. He is played by Moon Snail.
He's large, he's in charge, and he has the power of a barge! What Barbarian King lacks in critical thinking, he makes up for in sheer force! He also has a ton of vialed spells in stock to support, as well as a strong buffing power in Iron Fist! Any party with this beast of a king is sure to succeed!
Barbarian King is a fairly barbaric person, liking to crash villages and stealing gold. While he is benevolent towards his friends and people, he strikes fear into his enemies. He's usually quick to decide to solve an issue by brute force (As shown in The Flying Star Cafe, where he constantly suggested killing the Zortigians to stop them from invading PPF). Before being betrayed by Mephiles, he was mostly goofy and amicable, but afterwards, he became rude and uncooperative due to his desire to stop the hedgehog.
Barbarian King was originally a strong member of his village at the Leyland Line. However, he was kidnapped by a monster called The Harbinger and trapped in The room of My Singing Monsters. He slowly went crazy from the sheer amount of singing and isolation, until the gang arrived. They then gave him an idea that he never thought of: Killing the monsters. He killed a few before being called out on it, since they never were evil. However, he did go to the Habinger's lair to slay him and obtain the key to the next room.
He was in Comatose for all of The Room of Plague Inc due to the virus, but returned in The Room of Terraria as a much more active character. He ended up collecting a Yo-yo to fight creatures, but wasn't able to kill Duke Fishron with it, resulting in him being eaten. After the gang slayed Fishron, he heard a cry from a voice in the jungle. Going with Me, Duck and a recently revived King Slime to find the voice. From there, they encountered The Golem, who was holding a new figure. The four fought to free the figure, but were pleasantly surprised to see another new character help them out. The five of them slew the Golem, and ended up freeing Lucas from his endless torture to the Golem.
From the room onward, Lucas and Barbarian King became best friends. Whenever one was in trouble, the other would be quick to save him. This temporarily ended in The Room of Undertale, where Lucas threatened to kill him for killing Toriel, and abandoned the group. Barbarian King continued without him, until near the end of Snowdin, where Me teleported everyone to the end, including him and Lucas. Lucas had a very tough time with Omega Flowey, so Barbarian King did his best to pull him through the battle. Near the end, when Flowey tried to crush Lucas, Barbarian King bashed his Flairon into the beast's hands, making him drop Lucas. He then chose to kill Flowey in his weakest state, but got stopped by Dark Dracul, who told him it wasn't up to him alone to decide. After the decision was made to spare him, he and Lucas fought Sans the Skeleton and Papyrus in a pokemon battle. He didn't do too well, because all of his pokemon were venomoths, but the two won in the end due to Lucas' advantage in number of pokemon.
In The Room of Star Wars, he met his future self and Super Monkey. They gave him a lightsaber, and brought him to Hoth to fight Necrola. He fell poisoned due to GLaDOS' neurotoxins, but got cured of it.
Once he got to The Room of Super Mario Galaxy, he was immediately welcomed to the room by having his best friend kidnapped by Bowser. He and Super Monkey fought through several galaxies to get to him, and ultimately stop Bowser. He borrowed Lucas' Cute Fishron for the room, but gave it back to him at the end.
He moved on to The Room of Super Smash Bros, and managed to beat Duck but lost to Star Butterfly. When everyone revolted, Master Hand turned everyone in the glass room evil, including him. Script's rifts managed to revert him to good a few times.
When the gang got to The Lair of the Dark Star, he lost his ability to use Iron Fist, so he used his Rage Spells instead. He ended up getting killed by Duke Fishron, and turned into OVERLORD. However, Dark Dracul converted him back to good.
In Humanimation, he was cornered by Monkey Mauler and Sacul the Dark Archer. He refused to fight them, despite demands from Sonic the Hedgehog. The two took him to Ripto's Space Station, and converted him into Barbarian Tyrant. However, in Isolation Point, he was brought back to good.
After Mephiles' betrayal in Time Turmoil, he has become very hostile, even towards his allies. He chooses to ignore whatever situation is going on, due to his desire to get revenge on the hedgehog, and must be persuaded to help the gang out.
Abilities and weapons
- Iron Fist: Allows him to become powerful and power up everyone around him. It also has the ability to summon barbarians, but that only seldom happens.
- Spell bottles: Barbarian King has the ability to use bottles that contain multiple kinds of spells:
- Lightning Spell: As to be expected, summons lightning bolts that crash down on the foe.
- Rage Spell: Causes everyone to become faster and stronger. He never uses this except in urgent cases, as Iron Fist is generally just better.
- Heal Spell: Heals everything in a range.
- Freeze Spell: Freezes a foe.
- Haste Spell: Causes the target to become extremely fast.
- Ppison Spell: Deals damage to foes overtime.

- Sword: A sword so powerful that it can destroy buildings. His weapon of choice.
- Flairon: An extremely powerful flail that can create bubbles.
- Amazon: A very powerful Yo-yo. However, the only time he used it ended up being useless. After he got the Flairon, he never used it again.
