Hive Tyrant is the Tyranid hero in The Last Stand. This hero is slow, but cannot be suppressed or knocked down. It has effective weapon options and can summon Tyranid minions to help the team.
The Hive Tyrant was added to the
and Dawn of War II version of TLS in the 2.1 update (March 10, 2010), and requires a copy of Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising Chaos Rising to use. In the and Dawn of War II: Retribution versions of TLS, the Tyrant is always available.

Spawned in troops Edit
Genestealer Brood Elite melee infantry An elite melee unit that infiltrates after staying still for enough time. Adrenal Rush ability grants increased speed, lifesteal and increased damage.
Warrior Brood Heavy melee infantry Melee unit that projects a synapse aura that increases the durability of nearby Tyranid units. Can be upgraded with the Barbed Strangler to suppress enemy infantry. Detects infiltrated units.
Tyrant Guard Monstrous creature A large, durable melee unit that moves faster in synapse. Can use the Shieldwall ability, which regenerates health and reduces incoming damage.
Ravener Brood Assault unit Fragile, high-damage melee unit that is effective against infantry and capable of burrowing underground. Can be upgraded with the Devourer, a ranged weapon effective against infantry and the Enhanced Muscle Coil to unlock the Burrow ability.
The Hive Tyrant is large and slow, but his armor selections, including his base armor, all confer immunity to both suppression and knockback. The Hive Tyrant will not often have the highest
DPS of a team's heroes, but his ability to summon units of Tyranids to the battlefield – like 3 Genestealers, a Tyrant Guard, a Warrior, and/or a Ravener – can more than make up for this deficiency.
