"Servant Sand Creatures" are a common enemy encountered in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Official Description

"These stout Sand Creatures are quite slow and lack the agility of their fellow comrades. Nevertheless, they can bring their spiked club down with deadly force. It's not a bad idea to avoid them to deal with other enemies that may pose a more urgent threat, but don't ignore them for too long. Hit them with a wall rebound attack, then plunge the Dagger into their bloated stomachs to retrieve their sand."
—Official Booklet Description[1]


Given their appearance, it is possible that the Servant Sand Creatures were once servants in the palace. Now tainted with the Sands of Time, each of them holds a large wooden club embedded with spikes, and wander around looking to kill anyone it comes across.

Servant Sand Creatures are some of the first enemies encountered by the Prince, after the Red Sand Guards and Axe Sand Creatures.



The best method to beating a Servant Sand Creature is to vault over it, hitting it once with your sword then using the Dagger on the second hit.
