Creates a blast of thorns for each attack. Upgrades can call forth powers of the Jungle, Storm, or Wrath.
~ Bloons Tower Defense 6 description

Description[edit | edit source]

The Druid is a Magic Class tower in the Bloons TD series. It first appears in Bloons TD 6 along with the Alchemist. They can be chosen and unlocked in-game between ranks 14-18. The Druid is a white-tan monkey that throws several small wooden thorns, which can destroy multiple bloons and/or layers, depending on its distance, similar to a shotgun. This tower's thorns, however, are ineffective against most special bloons attributes and requires upgrades to get much farther than that. Unfortunately, a majority of their early upgrades cannot detect camo attributes on its own and must be assisted by towers such as the Monkey Village and its camo detection upgrades. The first path for the Druid is similar to the first path of the Monkey Apprentice in BTD5. It is more powerful in groups with both its wrath and jungle forms being much more effective with other monkeys or Druids.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The second, third and to some degree its fifth upgrade of it's path 1 were formerly upgrades of the Wizard Monkey in BTD 5.
  • The second and third upgrades share common naming patterns between all 3 paths: "Heart of X" and "Druid of X" respectively.
  • This is the second monkey in the main Bloons TD games that doesn't have brown fur (excluding heroes and non-monkey towers like the Tack Shooter.) The first was the Ice Monkey.
