In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

The Black Knight appears exclusively in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Wii U as a Trophy and in Smash Tour. In both games, the Black Knight is referenced as one of Mii Swordfighter's costume.

As a costume

The Black Knight's armor is the basis of a paid downloadable content costume for Mii Swordfighters. The Black Knight's color scheme also serves as the basis for one of Ike's alternate costumes.

In Smash Tour

In Smash Tour, the Black Knight is a red item. A player using the Black Knight at the beginning of a battle will cause their smash attacks to occasionally have one-hit KO power at random for that battle.

Trophy Description


Not even the other members of the Daein army know the truth behind this dark knight. He is Ike's rival in Path of Radiance and the sequel, Radiant Dawn. His mastery skill Eclipse is so incredibly powerful, it'd be understandable if you thought his defeat would bring peace to the war-torn land.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
