The Necromancer is the secondary antagonist of the indie game Castle Crashers. He is the right-hand man of the Evil Wizard. He is able to resurrect the dead.
When the Necromancer and the Wizard traveled through Lava World, the Necromancer resurrected multiple skeletons out of statues to attack the Castle Crashers.
The Necromancer was able to revive the Cyclops out of a lava pit to join himself and the Wizard in taking control of the world.
The Necromancer again traveled with the Evil Wizard, this time through the marsh, where he resurrects multiple skeletons that the Evil Wizard buffs and turns "beefy" to stop the Castle Crashers.
The Necromancer also appears in the Evil Wizard's Castle where he fights the Castle Crashers by reanimating two waves of corpses that are piled throughout his room. When the Castle Crashers defeat both waves he decides to take them on himself, using magic to shoot exploding skeletons and summon skeletal hands from the ground. If the Castle Crashers get close enough to him he simply blocks the majority of their attacks and goes back to using his magic. When defeated he levitates away, but drops his sword, the Necrotana.
The Necromancer can become a playable character if the "Industrial Castle" stage is completed on Insane Mode.
