Open-Faced Gray Knight's specialties include basic juggling and combo locking.
A unique variation of Gray Knight that does not appear in Story Mode normally.
Open-Faced Gray Knight looks exactly the same as a regular Gray Knight, except Open-Faced Gray Knight's visor is lifted up. Open-Faced Gray Knight shares the same Magic setup as Thief, Peasant, Civilian, and Stove Face. Thus, making him a bland character. If you did not unlock the Skinny Sword from Gray Knight by Level Skipping, or from purchasing the Skinny Sword from Castle Keep, then you will gain the Skinny Sword if you beat Catfish on Insane Mode.
Open-Faced Gray Knight's respective "Arrow Rain" Splash Attack and "Dagger" Magic Projectile and Air Projectile make him a member of the fan nicknamed "Arrow Rainers". Bland and common characters that show off nothing special at all. These are considered to be the gold standard for Castle Crashers, as they are painfully below average, are not any better than the characters above them, and are not unique, unlike the characters below them. These are the aforementioned Open-Faced Gray Knight, Thief, Stove Face, Peasant, and Civilian.
Arguably the easiest character to pick up and learn. Due to the mediocre Splash Attack, you are stuck with Strength heavy weapons for the majority of your play through.
The gold standard Arena character. If you can master the "Arrow Rainers" you can play as anybody above or below the "Arrow Rainers" in the tier lists.
