Barbarian is a creature class. Barbarians are unorganized fighters, usually from primitive and/or uncivilized cultures. Many barbarians charge into battle in a state of madness, an ability that is reflected on several barbarian cards by abilities that require the player to discard. Many barbarians have first strike and/or haste, representing their ferocity. Barbarians are centered in red.

Barbarians debuted as a creature type in Ice Age, but Alpha 's Keldon Warlord gained the type retroactively. The barbarian creature type has been by and largely supplanted by the warrior and berserker types. The last Barbarian was originally printed in Coldsnap before seeing new cards as part of Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms.
