Ah, the topside air! Horses and caves never mixed well....
Barton is a minor character in King of Cards, and an Adventurer with a knack for finding treasures.


Barton shares the same appearance and portrait as regular Adventurer horsemen.


Barton has been adventuring in the Lost City to looks for treasures. He however found himself too much weighted by his loot to climb back up and thus trapped at the Volcanic Vault. He sells King Knight the Scorching Saber for 9 Merit Medals at the beginning of the course so you can both escape.

At the beginning of the Heirloom Course:

"Barton: The Lost City is a scrounger's paradise, all right. But I'm so saddled with loot that I can't climb out! Tell you what. If I share my best plunder, maybe we can both gallop out of here?"


"Barton: Afraid of a little rockslide, eh? Well, come around when you stirrup some confidence, partner!"

After buying the Heirloom:

"Barton: Meet me on the other side.
And you can't Shoulder Bash in here. Use the Scorching Saber I just give ya!

At the end of the Course:

"Barton: Ah, the topside air! Horses and caves never mixed well.... That yer airship? Mind if I... hitch a ride?"

When first spoken to at the Glidewing:

"Barton: Ah,
the life!
Thanks again for your help; I've got more gold than I can carry, so let me kick ya some!

If spoken again after that:

"Barton: Hoof on heart, I love playin' Joustus! You up for a round?"


"Barton: The best Joustus player I'm not... May, I don't even care if I win! I can afford to max out my cards!"
