The Night Witch dresses in an extremely similar way as her home village counterpart; The Witch. The Night Witch wears a black colored hood and wields a two-headed battle axe with a blue gem-like decoration in the middle as her weapon of choice.
She is a unit that spawns Bats. This is similar to her counterpart, the Witch from the Home Village, which spawns Skeletons in a similar fashion.
When her health is depleted, her special ability, if unlocked (the Night Witch must be level 4 or higher) allows her to transform into a few Bats, prolonging her attack.
Night Witches have no preferred target when attacking; they will simply attack the closest building to them. However, once they become aware of enemy Guard Post troops (either by being attacked themselves or being near another friendly troop under attack), they will leave their previously targeted building and engage the enemy troops instead. Once all of the nearby enemy troops are defeated, they will proceed to attack the nearest building from their current location.
Strategy and Tips
She may be used just like the regular Witch, with multiple ways to attack.
The Bats spawned could be used as an advantage, by attacking as an air unit; however they are vulnerable to Air Bombs and Roasters.
Unlike Skeletons, the Bats cannot protect the Night Witch from ground attacks. This makes her especially vulnerable to ground defenses such as the Double Cannon or Multi Mortar.
Make sure to protect your defenses from Air Bombs or the Roaster so your defenses can take the Night Witch out before she can stack up her Bats.
It is a good idea to spawn her at the outside of the base, because she can stack up Bats before she starts attacking.
Placing one or two Night Witches a few tiles behind a Boxer Giant is a good strategy. The Giant will tank enemy defenses while the Witches summon lots of Bats and chip away at the enemy's structures without being targeted. This strategy, however, is vulnerable to Multi Mortars if the troops are not placed a few tiles away from each other.
At Level 1, she has a red cloak a black cape and glowing blue eyes.
At Level 13, the colour of her staff changes to gold.
The Night Witch was first introduced at 22/5/2017 as a "Coming Soon" troop.

The Night Witch is a troop that originated from Clash Royale.
However, she shoots the same projectile as the Witch, as opposed to the Clash Royale melee counterpart.
Coincidentally, she received a nerf in both versions
The Night Witch is the only troop to unlock its ability at level 4 as opposed to level 2 for now.
Although in the info page the Night Witch wears a blue colored coat but she wears a red coat in the gameplay.
