Units come in classes. Classes determine unit abilities and limitations. Known classes include:
There are classes of special significance:
Unit Stats and Abilities
Statistics are numerical values that are used by the Combat, Magic, or other systems of the Erfworld universe. Generally, the higher the number is, the better the Unit is. As these values increase, power increases linearly. 
- Move - Distance a Unit can move during its Turn
- Hits - Amount of damage a Unit can take before croaking
- Combat - Offensive combat value. Sometimes referred to as Attack.
- Defense - Defensive combat value.
Units also have some hidden statistics:
- Loyalty - how strongly a Unit is aligned with its RulerErf-b1-p084a
- Experience - How far a Unit has progressed towards gaining its next Level. Experience is (usually) gained by croaking enemies.
Units may also have one or more Natural (or Special) Abilities.
Some units have abilities that can achieve unconventional results, and can be used when not on Turn. These abilities are named Natural AbilitiesErf-b1-p040a and are sometimes referred to as Special Abilities.

Royal and Noble Units
It would seem that royals are able to better contemplate strategic data.summer-updates-017 This is corroborated by Stanley's apparent idiocy when it comes to tactics and Jillian's immediate thought-transfer to army-raising when reminded she was queen.
- Engineer-class infantry
Some units types don't have classes, but do have descriptors and may have multiple forms, like Golems.
Garrison units may have special classes in addition to their basic class.
- Tunnel Capable (Spidew/Sourmander) - A Heavy Unit capable of entering tunnels
- Tunnel Fighter (Gobwin/Marbit) - Provides a bonus at fighting in tunnels (These could be the same Ability, applied to Heavy and Light Units respectively.)
- Breath Weapon - Allows the Unit to use a short/medium range "breath" attack before or instead of melee.
- ArmoredErf-b1-p077 - Probably increases the Unit's Defence.
Regeneration may be preventable by fire damage, or simply an incredibly overwhelming amount of damage. Both were dealt to Bogroll and he did not regenerate.
Possibly the Regeneration mechanic is that any sub-lethal damage is healed very rapidly, but that any attack powerful enough to kill the unit will not be regenerated. There have been two twolls damaged in Erfworld book one, most notably Bogroll, but also a twoll apparently killed in one blow by Jillian (page 10 frame 5). This is only pertinent if all (or at least most) twolls regenerate, of course.
