Green Knight is one of the 31 Playable Characters in the game Castle Crashers. His magical attacks are Poison and his starting weapon is the Thin Sword.


Green Knight's specialties include Poison DoT (Damage over Time) (3x higher damage than Fire DoT potentially), crowd clearing, basic but sluggish juggling, and basic boss slaying.

InformationEdit

OverviewEdit

Green Knight's element is Poison. All poison attacks do three hits of DoT, which makes his magic quite effective at dishing out large amounts of damage. This is offset, however, by the large amounts of enemies that are resistant to poison; in fact, some enemies, such as Skeletons, are essentially immune to Poison and its secondary effects. Another unique characteristic about the Green Knight is that his heavy attack speed, compared to other characters, is rather sluggish, and hits less times compared to the regular heavy attack. This is the main reason why Green Knight is considered one of the worst characters in the game, in spite of his powerful magic; his melee forces the player to irritatingly adapt to an entirely different method of juggling, and weakens many powerful juggling techniques that every other character possesses.

DescriptionEdit

Green Knight, befitting of his name, dons a green themed helm and tunic. He is usually portrayed as the angriest looking out of the knights. When injured, he can be seen crying or closing his eyes, mouth open.

InvolvementEdit

Green Knight is one of the King's Knights, to whom he serves with loyalty, helping to get the princesses back and defeating the Evil Wizard.

MagicEdit

Magic Projectile

"Poison Ball"

A ball of poison. The Poison DoT effect is rather nice in killing enemies quicker; more so than Fire DoT.


Air Projectile

"Poison Ball"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Hits: {{{Hits}}}

A ball of poison. The Poison DoT is rather nice in killing enemies quicker; more so than a different character's Fire DoT. An advanced use of Juggling, named Spellweaving, can use this Air Projectile for flashy techniques.

Elemental Infusion

"Poison Burst"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Base Melee Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Use Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. A blast of poison drenches enemies. The Poison DoT effect makes this pretty powerful and potentially superior to Fire.

Magic Jump

"Poison Jump"

Element: Poison

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Poison DoT x 3

Leaps up with poison billowing out below, poisoning any enemies near the initial impact.

Heavy AttackEdit

Green Knight's heavy attack is unique from the other playable characters in that you have to do 1 or 2 lightweight juggle combos, particularly one which elevates the targets up slightly or elevating the targets plus the full heavy attack.[1] Overall, it's a hindrance with an okay work around. As for mediumweight juggling, it's nearly impossible to start it with the basic, starting Xbox360 Button YXbox360 Button Y method, so Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button YXbox360 Button Y will do.
