Voted, H5, as this one is the only true original one. All the others are just tall, muscular Giants with one eye, whilst H5's is a Savage, goblin-eating leviathan. Really refreshing.

But, second came the H2 one, as I LOVED the Lazerbeam attack. Lol, 23th Century Weaponry in Ancient Myth Creatures lol

It's a tie between 2&3. I love to "FIRE DA LAZAAH!!!" in the second, but in the third they look like a warrior-cyclop in a society would (i think). The expression in their face & the grunting when they take damage is nice indeed.

As for the "not being savage and original" enough, in my world it's because they're forced to act in a more correct way while serving an army

The one from heroes II is the coolest xD

When I first saw the cyklop in heroes V while my brother was playing I didn't realize it was a cyklop, I thought it was some giant thing xD

The HOMM2 Cyclops is the best, hands down. If it was upgradable, the laser could be replaced by ion cannon.

I like the H3 cyclops the most, as it looks the most like a "real" cyclops among all five. The H5 one doesn't even look like a human giant, which a cyclops is described to be in the old myths.

I see many agree with me that the HOMM2 is the coolest.  I really like the ground-crunching sound when it walks too.  Although I agree the HOMM3 looks the most true to the old movie version.

Hey, how about an all-cyclops town?  Then we can have all of them!

I voted IV. It was overpowered and has AOE ranged rock throw attack. I remember wining my battles based on it, goes real op with precision.

Heroes 1 cyclops were still a fearsome unit. At least comparable to Paladins and able to paralyze Phoenixes. Sturdy and nasty abilities.

In Heroes 2, they're just second weakest level7 unit. Battlefield is larger and speed is no longer sufficient, titans shoot them, phoenixes, bone dragons, dragons just beat them into a pulp.

Heroes 3 cyclops are nothing special, they were called Trolls in first 2 games.

In heroes 4 they can be brutal.
Get them up on the towers and I don't have to worry about the AI taking my town anymore. They alone can decimate your army if you don't control all of them with spells. They are the best ranged units to have on towers (besides Gargantuans, but you will almost always have more cyclopses anyway).

Yes... thank you HOMMIV cyclops is very underrated(well since no one talks about them in this thread) and the game itself also is wildly underrated. Its good to see someone sharing my thoughts.

how can we forget H4 cyclops? one of the best ranged units of this game. their ability was totally evil, especially the fact you could aim between creatures (impossible with magogs in H3) and in the original game, they were the only shooter which suffered no range retaliation and had no line of sight requirement

In Heroes IV, I think Venom Spawns are the truly brutal unit on turrets. They hit hard and it doesn't matter if the target survives, really. Poison will take them down soon and it damages for a fraction of initial damage (which is big with turret bonus). If enemy closes in and destroys the gate, Venom Spawns are still formidable because they have no melee penalty. On a turret, venom spawns beat titans easily.

In Heroes 4 on the might campaign on champion difficulty (after getting through the very difficult first scenario), I remember having Waerjak, Oris (with nature magic), a stack of cyclopses and some other couple whatever units. I was going around on the last 2 maps and just clicking 'auto' for the computer to fight my battles. I was storming through the maps pretty much clearing every corner and everything that stood in my path.
Yeah my 2 main heroes were tough, but no other time do I ever remember just clicking 'auto' and having the computer defeat the enemies flawless time after time. Another example of how great cyclopses are in H4.

For gameplay it's the HOMM5 cyclops.

But as for looks i would say HOMM3 cyclops.

You forgot that HOMM5 cyclops have beam attack as well on one of their upgrades, And the other has a powerful club attack.
