The Green Knight is one of the 31 playable characters in the game Castle Crashers. His magic powers are "poison-based" and are excellent against beefy enemies. His starting weapon is the Thin Sword.


The Green Knight is one of the four basic starting knights. He uses poison-based magic, and his default weapon is the Thin Sword.

Green Knight's element is Poison. All poison attacks do three hits of damage over time, but over half of the enemies resist the damage which balances that out making it about as effective as fire.

Overall poison is a relatively effective element.


This character is one of the four ultimate warriors, and the only character to use poisonous magic as of now.


All powers become stronger as the player levels up their Magic stat. The Green Knight's magic revolves around poison and all do damage over time (DoT) after the attack hits.

Splash Attack

"Poison Blast"

Element: Poison

Max Hits: 1 per upgrade level (Max 7)

Damage/hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5 (30 damage and 20 DoT; 38 at max potential and 25 DoT)

Poisonous cloud billows forth, knocking over any enemies it hits and poisons them (if they are not already poisoned). The DoT does 3 hits of Magic DoT Damage before wearing off, and they are completely unaffected by further Poison DoT effects until it wears off. 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. However, its range is not as long as most other Splash Spells, going only about 50% as far as Flame Burst from the Orange Knight, for example. This spell's collision is a bit odd in that it can go a decent amount past terrain obstacles such as walls, pits, and the line in the volleyball game, although it does not get its full length like the "Buzzsaws" spell does and is shorter than Orange Knight's "Flame Burst" which is also like this.

Projectile Attack

"Acid Shot"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage (59 damage and 20 DoT; 75 at max potential and 25 DoT)

A ball of poison. The Acid DoT effect adds a nice bonus, with the only downside being the Acid element will not affect Skeletons, as well as pretty much half of the other enemies in the game resisting the damage, this will make it harder on the level Marsh on Insane. 

X X X Y Combo

"Acid Burst"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Base Melee Damage (96 damage and 20 DoT; 110 at max potential and 25 DoT)

A blast of Poison drenches enemies in poison. The Acid DoT effect makes this pretty powerful, but it loses to fire because almost half of the enemies resist acid while almost half of the enemies are weak to fire.

Magic Jump

"Acid Jump"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage (59 damage and 20 DoT; 75 at max potential and 25 DoT)

Leaps up with acid billowing out below, acidifying any enemies below.
