Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5 + Fire DoT

Use 360 RT.png360 Y.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. Creates a horizontal burst of flames. It is the longest Splash Attack in the game, covering the entire screen (if his Magic level is high enough). The range combined with the knockback make this spell viable for exceptional crowd control. It's also rapidly damaging to bosses. Not every hitbox needs to touch a boss in order to hit the maximum amount of times.

Use 360 RT.png360 B.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Circle.png to perform. Shoots a horizontal or downward angled fireball. A ball of fire trailing smoke. The Fire DoT (although short compared to most characters) effect adds a nice bonus, with the downside being the Fire element meaning some enemies will resist it.

Strategy

Overview

Orange Knight's element is Fire. Fire has one hit of damage over time, but unlike poison, over half of the enemies are weak to it. Some of the enemies weak to fire include: Barbarians, the Barbarian Boss, Trolls, Bears, Royal Guards, Stove Faces, Fish Men, Snakeys, Iceskimos, Frost King, and Undead Cyclops. In addition to that, fire deals full knockback to all heavyweight enemies. (Stove Face, Royal Guards, and Coneheads). Fire Demons resist the knockback from all fire attacks. Cult Minions are immune to any elemental effect and take minuscule damage, however, this can be taken advantage of.

Orange Knight, boasts one of the longest Splash Attack ranges out of any characters in the game, along with Pink Knight's "Rainbow Chain" Splash Attack. Unlike the aforementioned Pink Knight and, to a lesser extant, the Blue Knight, Orange Knight has the least expensive Splash Attack in the game, along with the Fencer, Brute, etc.

With all of this in mind, Orange Knight is considered to be one of the best characters in the game, in the same leagues as Fencer, Industrialist, Blue Knight, Iceskimo, and Fire Demon. He also arguably has the greatest Unlock Path, rivaled only by Blue Knight.

Castle Crashers

To take advantage of Orange Knight's Magic, attribute to Agility first, and then Magic. Use a Magic heavy weapon that does not reduce Strength. The top 5 Animal Orbs in Snoot, Burly Bear, Hawkster, Piggy, and BiPolar Bear will suffice. Overall, Orange Knight is one of the easiest characters to pick up and learn. His game plan is rivaled only by his unlock, the Fire Demon.

Arena

Orange Knight is an underrated character in Arena. Orange Knight has a fast Splash Attack with long range leading to some good confirms.
