The Red Knight is a playable character in the video game Castle Crashers
. His Red helmet is his defining feature, he also initially wields a mace and shield but you can change his weapon by visiting the blacksmith.
As with the rest of the characters in Castle Crashers, the Red Knight has a Magic Ability, his being the ability to perform lightning-based attacks upon enemies. The lightning attack is unique to the Red Knight, and is often considered the most powerful, as it holds the targeted enemy in place, and continually does damage. The Red Knights magic also lasts for as long as the magic bar is if you hold the buttons down. To perform the Lighting attack the user must press the Y button whilst holding in RT (Right Trigger), this will let the Red Knight release a bolt of lightning. The range and damage of this attack is entirely dependent on how many points the user has put into the Red Knight's Magic stat. If this stat is raised enough, then you are able to perform another magic attack by pressing RT B. It shoots a ball of lightning at the opponent. This attack does more damage, and has more range then the RT Y attack.
