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.
