|"After several mutations, Huge Hermit finally turned to Mini Hermit. But beware! Its claws are still fearsome."|
The Mini Hermit is a playable unit in Metal Slug Attack. It was originally a pre-acquisition unit, obtained by purchasing 4,750 medals. Parts can be bought from in the Guild Shop (5x for 500 Guild coins).
A smaller version of the Huge Hermit, the Mini Hermit lacks ranged attacks. It focuses solely on attacking enemies with its claws, which deals heavy damage and can knockback enemies. Like its huger counterpart, the Mini Hermit rushes towards enemies with its special, but does not shoot out cannon shells at the same time. It can still be knocked back while performing its special.
It is a good choice for an early unit, as it has good damage and health to back it up. Its versatility decreases very quickly afterwards, as enemy units will destroy the Mini Hermit in seconds before it is able to do anything. Its knockback capabilities also make it a poor choice when facing units like Leona.
The Mini Hermit is part of two teams, compared to most units which are only part of one:
- When placed in a deck with the Pirate Soldier and their assault variant, they form the "We the Pirates" team, lowering their AP costs by 15%.
- When placed in a deck with the Huge Hermit, they form the "Rush Recklessly" team, lowering their AP costs by 10%.
