Pink Knight is one of the 31 Playable Characters in the game Castle Crashers. Their magical attacks are Non-Elemental and their starting weapon is the NG Lollipop.

Pink Knight's specialties include damage per second, stunlock, combo locking, and basic juggling.

Information

Description

They feature Pink and white Knight-like armor/tunic, joyful eyes and face, pink heart on their chest (Which replaces a Cross/Plus-Sign), and lipstick kiss marks on the facial area. For some reason, unlike the other knights, it isn't as common for their face to change expressions.

Magic

Splash Attack

"Rainbow Chain"

Element: Non-Elemental

Max Hits: 4 per upgrade level (max of 16)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5

Use 360 RT.png360 Y.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. Rainbow Chain is a Splash Attack that shoots 4 segments of a rainbow which cause enemies to perform a peace sign. It's unique not only because of the stunlock and rapid damage, but it's the only other normal style splash magic besides the "Saw Trap" Splash Attack (used by Fencer and Industrialist) that hits more than 7 times per cast. It also, just like Orange Knight's "Flame Burst" Splash Attack, has the longest range of all Splash Attacks in the game. Unlike Orange Knight, however, it's fully upgraded by the time only 15 points have been added to the magic stat (to the third highlighted bar). The cost of this spell increases as the magic stat increases, making it impossible to cast this spell more than twice per mana bar.

Magic Projectile

"Stuffed Animal"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Use 360 RT.png360 B.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Circle.png to perform. A Magic Projectile attack where the knight throws a chubby penguin or a pink hamster (as seen at the end of the game) in an arc type motion. Stuffed Animals can also perform Critical Strike.

Air Projectile

"Stuffed Animal"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Use 360 A.png, 360 RT.png360 Y.png / PS3 Cross.png, PS3 R2.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. An Air Projectile where the knight throws a chubby penguin or a pink weasel (as seen at the end of the game) in an arc type motion. Stuffed Animals can also Critical Strike. When used in the air, it falls at a 60° angle rather than a 45° angle like most other projectiles, which only makes it more effective, because it will hit enemies that stand close to you where you can't hit them with projectiles at Magic Jump height. With Air Projectiles, those enemies will be no big deal at all, and that makes Spellweaving very useful for doing Insane Mode alone without taking damage at all.

Elemental Infusion

"Armor Pierce"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage^2 + Base Melee Damage^2

Use 360 X.png360 X.png360 X.png360 Y.png / PS3 Square.pngPS3 Square.pngPS3 Square.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. This attack pierces armor, and it deals two times normal damage. That means it deals as much damage to a Barbarian or Thief on Normal Mode as it does to a Stove Face or Brute on Insane Mode.

Magic Jump

"Pink Weasel Jump"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Use 360 RT.png360 A.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Cross.png to perform. A Magic Jump where a pink weasel (as seen at the end of the game) comes up from the ground beneath the player and propels them into the air.

Strategy

Overview

Pink Knight's "Rainbow Chain" Splash Attack is a useful tool for interrupting enemies mid-fight. Pink Knight's Air Projectile can be used to spellweave, too. Overall, Pink Knight is good for large groups of enemies, such as the Necromancer fight, and his "Rainbow Chain" is tied with Blue Knight and Iceskimo's "Ice Pillars" Splash Attack as the most expensive in the game. Average character.

Castle Crashers

Pink Knight's incredibly easy to pick up and learn. His game plan is to take some advantage of stat distributing to Magic to take advantage of the "Rainbow Chain" Splash Attack's long range. Recommended to use a Strength heavy weapon or a Magic heavy weapon that does not reduce Strength. Animal Orb selection makes a bit of difference. The top 5 Animal Orbs in Snoot, Burly Bear, Hawkster, Piggy, and BiPolar Bear will suffice.

Arena

Pink Knight is an underrated Arena character. Pink Knight's "Rainbow Chain" Splash Attack can be lead to a mediumweight juggle, when accurately used. It leaves Pink Knight open for a counter.
