Sword Knight is a recurring enemy in the Kirby series, wearing green or purple armor and wielding a spiked blade either white or golden in hue. It has appeared in various games, and will grant Kirby the Sword Copy Ability when swallowed. Sword Knights are normally found in random areas, and are usually ranked as minor enemies. It also appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! as an ally and a servant of Meta Knight.

Kirby Air Ride

In Kirby Air Ride, Sword Knight returns, riding on a hoverboard. If Kirby approaches, it will swing its sword wildly at him until he passes. Unlike most enemies in the game, Sword Knight rarely appears in a large group. At most, two or three might appear at once to gang up on Kirby.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror & Kirby: Squeak Squad

KNiD E SwordKnight.png Sword Knight appears in both of these games, looking and acting exactly as it has in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

When possessed by Ghost Kirby, Sword Knight can be made to walk, jump, and perform both standing and dashing slashes with its sword. It can do three different swipes with its sword while standing, though these differ only in look.

Locations

In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Sword Knight can be found in every major area of the Mirror World except for Radish Ruins.

Kirby Super Star Ultra

SwordSSU.png In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Sword Knight appears as a normal enemy, but only in Revenge of the King, where he replaces Blade Knight. Sword Knight blocks projectiles and is much more aggressive than Blade Knight. Kirby is granted the Sword Copy Ability when he swallows one. However, Kirby is unable to call on Sword Knight to be a Helper. He can only call for Blade Knight. In Revenge of the King, Sword Knight appears in the stages Purple Plants, Crash Clouds, and The Revenge.

In Meta Knightmare Ultra, Meta Knight can call on a Sword Knight to assist him. It possesses most of Meta Knight's basic abilities and moves. By default, Sword Knight is AI-controlled, but a second player is able to control it. Whether a Sword Knight or Blade Knight is summoned is randomized.

Sword Knight also appears in Helper to Hero, with orange armor and a blue and red torso. Unlike Blade Knight, it is able to use an upwards-thrust attack.
