My vote for Cutest Unit of Age of Empires III goes to the Envoy! :P Everything about him is cute, from his hat, his funny accent, the way he goes: "hallo", his shoes, did I mention his hat? Look at it when he's running! (Even the way he runs is funny to watch)

Although I must admit, the capybara comes in a close second, even though it's a giant rat :P.

High on my list: the occasional French female villager. Which, alas, you only get via Treasures or a Cherokee tech. Of course that is only because of the voice and the things she says. Can't compete with the allrounder of cuteness that is the envoy. And he better be cute, cause he is a sad unit in every other respect

Actually, I think the fact that the envoy can't attack makes him cuter, in a weird kinda way. He just stands there and watches stuff, while wearing a really cool hat!

Sorta like how a Slow Loris is cute because it's slow :P.

Actually, that's NOT a fact.

The Envoy uses a punching attack and it's so hilarious to watch that I think it quadruples his cuteness! XD

Hey!? One time I tried to ask my Envoy to actually attack something, and he just ran to it. I didn't know he could ATTACK! I must load the game and see this for myself immedietly!

I'll be! Those things really CAN attack!

Battle report: Dutch vs Ottomans

I started off the game with the free 68 Envoys card to counter the Ottoman rush.

[JPEG, (154.30 KB)]
Here come my Envoys! The way they run makes them look like a team of rugby players from HECK!

[JPEG, (171.33 KB)]
My envoys catch the dazed and confused Ottomans by suprise, and battle is joined!

[JPEG, (224.82 KB)]
The Ottomans fight for their lives! Those Envoys who aren't engaged in brutal fisticuffs stand and watch ominously from the sidelines!


An Ottoman, isolated from the herd, is jumped by 3 of Holland's finest!

[JPEG, (198.99 KB)]
The Ottomans had the edge in guile, skill, and valour. But in the end, only sheer numbers mattered!


The last Ottoman, in a moment that vaguely resembles that scene from 'The Man Who Would Be King'


Have you ever seen a bunch of Envoys cheering after they won a fight? If not, open up the editor NOW, have a bunch of them beat up something, and see for yourself! It's hilarious! :P

Try a Envoys vs Priests matchup. The priests aren't cute though.

I truly hate the way the Dutch speak. Altough all words are pronounced right (despite some grammatical incorrectnesses), it is spoken in lifelessly, uses some words you wouldn't expect (would any dutchman say "okay" in the 1600s?).

I don't think ES went for total accuracy on the voices, many strike me as cute or novel.

But as far as the second cutest unit goes, I would say the Russian Explorer. He looks like a rapper with big baggy clothes.

I'm Dutch, but I don't think that the Dutch voices are strange. In the beginning it was very strange for me to hear my own language, but you have to get used to it and now I even like it and think that it's cool! I also like the cannons with their "Den Haagse" ("The Hage-ish") accent. So no, their voices don't suck. I only think that the voice of the "Fluyt" isn't originally done by a Dutchman because he says "iek doe het" instead of "ik doe het". I think that their battle sound is quite awsome "AANVALLUH!!!"

btw, how do you get that 68 envoys card :|!?

btw, capybara's aren't rats but they are giant originally family of cavias (guinea pigs)

If they had bothered to make a separate model for the coyote it would win this contest hands down... epic thread by the way.

Those pictures remind me of when I had my native scout hunt down the Dutch Envoy. The envoy didn't stand a chance.

The cutest unit in AOE3 is one of the non playable ones, it's one of the customizations, and that customization has to be the jack the Ripper one!

Grunt, that was brilliant, purely brilliant. And is it just me or is their celebration pose an Elvis style pelvic thrust?

As for the cutest unit, the not fat sheep ^_^.

The Envoy isn't cute, it's hilarious.

Oprichniks are the best units in AoE3. Why? It's elementary, they're Horse-riding Russian Pirates, nothing beats Horse-riding Russian Pirates.

Having looked at a bunch, here's my top 6 cutest:

1. Fat Lhama
2. Caypbara
3. Turtles on a log
4. Kingfisher
5. Rhea
6. Russian Explorer

With the big pants the Russian Explorer looks like a midget from the normal view!
