Information Edit

Description Edit

InvolvementEdit

Green Knight is one of the King's Knights, to whom he serves with loyalty, helping to get the princesses back and defeating the Evil Wizard.









Magic Edit

Splash Attack

"Poison Blast"

Element: Poison

Max Hits: 1 per upgrade level (max 7)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5 + Poison DoT x 3

Use 360 RT360 Y / PS3 R2PS3 Triangle to perform. A poisonous cloud pillows forth, knocking over any enemies it hits and poisons them. The Poison damage over time effect is inconsistent because of how many enemies that resist the Poison element. Each upgrade level adds to the range and to how many max hits the spell can inflict on an enemy that is not knocked over by it. This spell's collision is a bit odd in that it can go through a decent amount past terrain obstacles such as walls, pits, and the line of the Volleyball Game, albeit it won't fully go past the line unlike Industrialist and Fencer's Splash Attacks, which fully can.

Arguably, a worse version of Orange Knight's "Flame Blast" Splash Attack.

Magic Projectile

"Poison Ball"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Use 360 RT360 B / PS3 R2PS3 Circle to perform. A ball of Poison. The Poison Damage over Time effect is inconsistent because of how many enemies that resist the Poison element.

Arguably, a worse version of Orange Knight's "Fireball" Magic Projectile.

Air Projectile

"Poison Ball"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Use 360 A, 360 RT360 Y / PS3 Cross, PS3 R2PS3 Triangle to perform. A ball of poison. The Poison Damage over Time effect is inconsistent because of how many enemies that resist the Poison element.

Arguably, a worse version of Orange Knight's "Fireball" Air Projectile.

An advanced use of Juggling, named Spellweaving, can use this Air Projectile for flashy techniques.

Elemental Infusion

"Poison Burst"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Base Melee Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Use 360 X360 X360 X360 Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. A blast of poison drenches enemies. The Poison Damage over Time effect is inconsistent because of how many enemies that resist the Poison element.

Arguably, a worse version of Orange Knight's "Flame Burst" Elemental Infusion.

Magic Jump

"Poison Jump"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Use 360 RT360 A / PS3 R2PS3 Cross to perform. Leaps up with poison billowing out below, poisoning any enemies near the initial impact. Inconsistent.

Arguably, a worse version of Orange Knight's "Flame Rise" Magic Jump.


Strategy Edit

Overview Edit

Green Knight's Poison Magic deals high damage over time on the few enemies that are vulnerable to it, making his Magic quite effective at dealing large amounts of damage.

This is offset, however, by the large amounts of rather challenging-to-face enemies, namely Snakeys, and Skeletons; that are resistant to Poison, and that Green Knight's Splash Attack has a small amount of knockback.

Another unique characteristic about the Green Knight is that his Heavy Attack rate, compared to other characters, is rather sluggish, and hits less times compared to the regular Heavy Attack.

This is the main reason why Green Knight is often considered to be the worst character and is extremely difficult to master. In spite of his powerful Magic; his combos forces the player to irritatingly adapt to an entirely different method of Juggling, and weakens or outright removes many powerful Juggling options that every other character possesses. However, there are a few nuances that make Green Knight, ultimately equivalent to the Conehead, Royal Guard, and Gray Knight.

There is good news, however. Green Knight has normally, a below average Unlock Path, that unlocks one of the best Arena characters in Royal Guard and Saracen.

360 Y360 Y / PS3 TrianglePS3 Triangle Edit

The most unique thing about Green Knight is his normal Heavy Attack combo. Thanks to FenixStryk and TheArcadeClassics[1], there is a comfortable lightweight infinite in 360 A, 360 X360 X360 Y, 360 X360 X360 Y360 Y / PS3 Cross, PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle, PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 TrianglePS3 Triangle. A mediumweight combo in 360 A, 360 X360 Y360 Y, 360 X360 Y360 Y, 360 X360 Y360 Y, 360 X360 X / PS3 Cross, PS3 SquarePS3 TrianglePS3 Triangle, PS3 SquarePS3 TrianglePS3 Triangle, PS3 SquarePS3 TrianglePS3 Triangle, PS3 SquarePS3 Square. With these two combos mastered, you can get a Gold Skull with Green Knight in little time.

Castle Crashers Edit

Overview Edit

Green Knight has a miserable time alone in Castle Crashers. Arguably has the most the difficult Marsh. However, what he lacks in being overshadowed, he has an okay game plan, once adapted to and mastered. Typically, you maximize Strength first with Green Knight as with Bear.

Contrary to popular belief, the Green Knight is not resistant or immune to Poison effects.

Arena Edit

Overview Edit

Green Knight's misfortune applies heavily here, too. Mediocre Magic that is an inferior version of Orange Knight. However, the Poison element effects every single player character, including the Snakey and Cult Minion.

Match-Ups Edit

Conehead/Royal Guard/Gray Knight Edit

Hope that they whiff. Difficult match-up.

Saracen Edit

Restrict Saracen's options, to several 50/50s. but counter with a Shield bash. Watch out for his Magic Projectile because it is unblockable.

Bear Edit

Restrict Bear's options to several 50/50s. but counter with a Shield bash. Caution is advised.

Orange Knight Edit

Even match-up at the highest potential. Another "Shotoclone".

Fencer/Industrialist Edit

Struggling match-up for Blue Knight with several 50/50s. Try not to whiff as much.

Blue Knight Edit

Punish on whiff.

Iceskimo Edit

A weaker version of Blue Knight. His Magic Projectile and Air Projectile can be converted to a confirm, another 50/50.
