Gunthor the Brave was a level 29 barbarian who lived in Barbarian Village. He was located in the Long Hall in the northern part of the village. He was stated to be a mighty warrior and a chieftain of the barbarians. On 21 September 2010, he was removed from the game and replaced with Chieftain Gunthor. Haakon the Champion replaced him as the new attackable boss of Barbarian Village.

Players could either fight him with melee combat, Ranged, or Magic. Like all barbarians from Barbarian Village (except for Litara and Peksa), if a player talked to Gunthor, the player would be attacked.

Players who fought him with melee generally only wanted to fight Gunthor when they had a Defence level of at least 20 (as he could hit often and deal 30 or 40 life points), as well as a weapon better than iron. Players who attacked him using Ranged or Magic could do so safely from behind the tables or stools. He was weak to Magic and Ranged.

Gunthor the Brave was the highest level barbarian in Barbarian Village.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Back in RuneScape Classic Gunthor the Brave was a lot bigger than normal barbarians, the size of a hill giant today. This was later changed to a smaller size, but the NPC that replaces him, Haakon the Champion, is also bigger than a regular human.
  • His sword strangely made a crushing noise like that of a pickaxe or battleaxe, as opposed to a two-handed sword.
  • According to the Bestiary, Gunthor's combat level is 54 after the Evolution of Combat.
