Sword Knight (Sword for short) is a recurring supporting character in the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is one of Meta Knight's apprentices, along with his companion Blade Knight.

In the 4Kids dub, Sword Knight speaks with a British cockney accent, which sets him aside from his partner Blade Knight who is usually unintelligible.


Sword Knight is a stout and disciplined soldier, but he is somewhat inexperienced, particularly when compared to his sworn master Meta Knight. Sword Knight takes his role as an apprentice seriously, though almost to a fault, since he treats the other residents of Dream Land as little more than entities to be protected, rather than people to engage with socially. He does tend to speak more often to the people he protects than Blade Knight, however, though that may be primarily due to his speech being more understandable. Since Sword and Blade Knight have known each-other longer than they have any other member of the cast, they trust each-other implicitly and work well together. However, this leads them to being largely interchangeable in personality, much like Fololo & Falala.

In the episode Hour of the WolfWrath, Blade Knight and Sword Knight are revealed to have once been road-side bandits and attempted to rob Meta Knight once before he saved them from WolfWrath. It was this act that led them to swear loyalty to him. Because of this history and despite their loyalty, both Blade and Sword are somewhat temperamental and undisciplined, which sometimes leads them into trouble. However, they have permanently left their criminal pasts behinds, and do not disturb the people of Cappy Town.

  • In the Kirby Mass Attack Sub-Game Kirby Quest, one of the battles features Meta Knight with a Sword Knight and Blade Knight at his side. These two supporting knights are very likely meant to represent Sword and Blade from the anime.
  • Eric Stuart (Sword's voice actor) only took the role of voice acting him in episode 82 and episodes after.
    • Sword's voice actor before then is unknown, nor why he quit.
      • It is not proven, but his voice actor may have been Bernd Vollbrecht.
