The Knight wields a long sword and has an amazing blonde mustache.
The Knight's statistics are all very moderate. This makes him a very versatile card.
Use the Knight as a meat shield for smaller troops, as it has fairly high hitpoints.
Alternatively, the Knight can be used to back up higher hitpoints troops, such as the Giant Skeleton or Giant.
The Knight can only target one target at a time. Using cards such as Guards or Skeleton Army will distract and overwhelm the Knight.
With high hitpoints and decent damage, he can be played both offensively and defensively.
He can survive a hit or two from a Prince, although Swarms are still recommended over a Knight.
He can be supported with Skeletons, Goblins, or Spear Goblins to deal quick and great damage. This combo is not only cheap but versatile. It also gives you enough time and Elixir to defend against your opponent. Deploy a splash troop like the Bomber in case the combo fails.
He is good for taking out small swarms of weak troops or low health units because of his good damage and fast attack speed.
The Knight is actually a good counter to cards such as the Dark Prince, Executioner, and the Miner due to his higher health, damage per second, and, in the case of the first two, Elixir advantage.
The Knight can also be used as a cheap tank as he has high health for his elixir cost.
The player should not ignore the Knight since he can actually deal great damage to an Arena Tower solo. They should use cheap troops to pull him towards the center like Spear Goblins and Archers, so the Knight gets distracted and can't get to towers easily.
The Knight was released with Clash Royale's soft launch on 4/1/16.
From the Knight's description, Knights and Barbarians are said to be distant cousins, due to their physical similarities, and especially their awesome mustaches. In fact, they do the same damage per hit as mentioned above, but the Knight has a faster hit speed, so he has a higher damage per second.
When a Knight is defeated, his fallen sword is embedded in the Arena's ground, similar to the Dark Prince whose weapon is dropped, but not kept in the ground.
When the Knight attacks, he will say things like, "Rrah!" , "Ha-ha!" or "Hawk!"
In the tutorial, the Knight is the first card you are told to use, although it is not required that you place him down first.
The Knight used to have shoulder pads which were colored blue or red depending on the side. This was later removed.
