Here are five of the best henchmen in Evil Genius 2: World Domination that will make your global assault so much more fun.

This guide will help you with that and provide you with a list of the five best henchmen in Evil Genius 2: World Domination.

If you're going to spend your time persuading the best crime lords of the world, then it should be worth it. Here you will find henchmen that will be doing their jobs better than the rest.

The Five Best Henchmen in Evil Genius 2

Jubei

  • Health: 375
  • Smarts: 350
  • Morale: 350

Crime lord Jubei is undoubtedly the best of the best. If you decide to recruit just one henchman, it should be Jubei without a question.

His best ability is Windwalk, which allows him to teleport quickly like the wind. This can be useful in so many situations, including fights and incursions. This skill can be used both offensively and defensively.

Flow is another great skill that adds a significant punch to Jubei's hits. All you need to do is make sure that you can execute several consecutive hits that will stack your damage up with each one of them.

Jubei's only drawback is that he can't heal himself, so don't put him against too many enemies. Instead focus on a single target, such as a super agent.

Dr. Magnolia Ming

  • Health: 350
  • Smarts: 350
  • Morale: 350

Dr. Ming is not just an excellent supporter and healer, but also one of the most dangerous killers in Evil Genius 2.

Her Contagion ability is unbelievably good, especially against a small army of enemies. It emits a gas cloud that kills a whole bunch of enemies and even chases them, if they try to escape.

The Cure skill does the same, but instead of killing enemies it heals your allies. Try to keep your allies away from the poisonous cloud or it will kill them, too.

Dr. Ming would be an excellent companion to Jubei. These two can single-handedly help you win the whole game.

I.R.I.S.

  • Health: 400
  • Smarts: 350
  • Morale: 350

This is an artificial intelligence and the finest ranged henchman in Evil Genius 2.

The best ability is Security Network Link, a kind of a surveillance camera that seeks out enemies, and after detecting them automatically summons guards. This is a great skill to have against rogues trying to steal your gold.

Reroute Power is a self-healing skill, which also reduces any damage taken. This makes I.R.I.S. a great tank supporter that can face even the strongest agents.

Incendio

  • Health: 325
  • Smarts: 350
  • Morale: 350

Incendio is truly unique!

His skills allow him to secretly drain enemy stats without them even noticing it. On the other hand, his damage is so powerful that it can hurt both your allies and even destroy furniture, which is undesirable.

His Perform Trick ability lures agents and tourists dealing damage to them. The AoE effect is so powerful that it will instantly ignite things around him on fire. The best way to deal with this drawback is to set up a few fire extinguishers at the place of the operation.

Combine Jubei with Incendio and make super agents pray for mercy.

Fugu

  • Health: 300
  • Smarts: 300
  • Morale: 350

At first glance, Fugu has nothing interesting to offer. Both of her abilities, Food Poisoning and Blowfish Explosion, are weaker versions of Dr. Ming's gas cloud that poisons enemies.

But she also has a secret skill that is absolutely worth checking out. It allows you to reduce the heat during certain missions by 75 points. This can help you prevent an entire region of going into lockdown.

Fugu can also be useful for your economics, since she can make some shops available to you that will bring in huge sums of money.

Those are the best henchmen in Evil Genius 2: World Domination, so now you know who to recruit for your global operations. Also, be sure to check out other Evil Genius 2 guides here at GameSkinny.
