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

Green Knight's specialties include damage over time, knockback crowd control, crowd clearing, and boss slaying.

Description

The Green Knight's element is Poison. All poison attacks do three hits of "damage over time". However, about half of the enemies in the whole game can resist that type of damage, which makes it about as effective as Fire, and makes it a relatively effective element.

Involvement

He is one of the four main King's knights, to whom he serves with loyalty. He will defend the kingdom at all costs, even if it means risking his own life in the process. His magical arts revolve around the use of poisoning clouds which can inflict poison status to any enemy who comes in contact with them. For this reason, he plays a more strategic role in the battlefield, as he can first poison a strong enemy and let him take damage over time, while he concentrates on attacking the rest.

Magic

All powers become stronger as the player levels up their Magic stat. The Green Knight's magic revolves around the use of poisoning clouds and all magical attacks do "damage over time" (DoT) after they hit.

Splash Attack

"Poison Burst"

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)

A poisonous cloud billows forth, knocking over any enemies it hits and poisons them. The poisoning damage over time effect makes this pretty powerful, and potentially superior to fire, depending on whether you want fast kills and boss slaying with Green Knight, or better crowd control as well as easier juggling with Orange Knight.

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. 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 Industrialist and Fencer's splash attack does.

This attack is comparable to Ninja's, however the slightly longer range and damage over time make it optimal for crowd clearing, while Ninja's is geared towards boss slaying. (Not that Green Knight is a bad boss slayer; Ninja is just a better candidate, but that's not a reason why Green Knight is bad, but why Ninja is a better choice for boss fights).

Magic Projectile

"Poison Bullet"

Element: Poison

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

A ball of poison. The poisonous damage over time effect adds a nice bonus, and with the XYX RT+Y YY infinite, Green Knight can kill an enemy faster than any other character in a juggle.

Elemental Infusion

"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 poisoning damage over time effect makes this pretty powerful, and potentially superior to fire, depending on whether you want fast kills and boss slaying with Green Knight, or better crowd control as well as easier juggling with Orange Knight.

Magic Jump

"Poison Jump"

Element: Poison

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

Leaps up with poison billowing out below, poisoning any enemies below.

Additional Information

  • The Green Knight has a different heavy attack (Xbox360 Button Y/PS3 Triangle) than the rest of the characters. Instead of spinning his weapon, he does a backflip in the air and attacks both sides. This feature, although unique, hinders his juggling ability meaning the player will have to come up with alternate juggle combos if they want to do well.

Trivia

  • The Green Knight is the only playable character with poison magic in the game.
  • The King might have promised the hand of the Green Princess to the Green Knight.
  • Out of all the other knights, the Green Knight seems to be the angriest on the selection menu, but the happiest on the main menu.
  • In the Newgrounds flash movie "Castle Crashing the Beard", the Green Knight is the axe bearing member of the Castle Crashers, with little role in the comedy. Often collaborating with the Blue Knight in tandem attacks.
  • In the Newgrounds flash movie "Castle Crashing XXX", he is the unofficial second-in-command (first in command being the Blue Knight).
  • In "Castle Crashing a Wedding", he kills the Conehead Groom by using his projectile magic.
  • Green Knight is a B Rank character.
  • Green Knight was walking along minding his own business through the swamp village, when all of a sudden the sheriff comes and arrests him. "Next time you're going to be doing acid, don't do it in MY village!" the sheriff said.
