Description, Sonic Unleashed[1]

The Egg Fighter: Knight is an enemy that appears in Sonic Unleashed. They are a model of Badniks created by Dr. Eggman and a variant of the Egg Fighter that wields both a sword and a shield in combat.


The Egg Fighter: Knights are identical to the standard Egg Fighter model. They have a torso in the shape of a hemisphere, with four flashlights arranged in a rectangle on their front and a flat cap-shaped head on top of it. They have relatively shot legs, with flat feet and circular ankles, and four-fingered arms that extend almost down to the ground. They are colored steel blue and silver, and have purple eyes.

Powers and abilities

As an Egg Fighter model, the Egg Fighter: Knights possess above average physical strength, enough to let them move barrels at least three times their own size and easily carry large steel shields.

The Egg Fighter: Knights shows significant proficiency in dual-wielding a sword and shield. They have noticeable swordsman skills in close combat, being able to perform both fast strikes and devastating special attacks where they utilize their robotic physiology to their fullest. They are also efficient in using their shields defensively.


Each of the Egg Fighter: Knights wield a single sword in their left hand and a shield in their right hand, making them perfectly balanced combat machines.[1] Their swords are large and double-edged with a cutting chain on the edges, making them resemble chainsaws, and ensures lethal damage to their targets.

The shields they wield are mostly in the shape of a kite shield and are primarily colored yellow. They have a "T" shaped steel blue plating on the front surface, a steel blue-colored lower edge and silver-colored sides, and grey spikes on their two upper corners. These shields are made of steel and are highly durable, capable of withstanding a direct Homing Attack without a scratch.


The Egg Fighter: Knights are not especially common, but the harder the Action Stages/Stages become, the more often they appear. Due to possessing a sword, the Egg Fighter: Knights have a greater attack range and do more damage than the regular Egg Fighters. When attacked, the Egg Fighter: Knights will try to use their shields to defend themselves. In gameplay, the Egg Fighter: Knights can use their shields to deflect a Homing Attack or minimize the damage from Skills.

In battle, the Egg Fighter: Knights will use their shields to defend themselves when attacked. When on the offensive, the Egg Fighter: Knights attack with their swords. Exclusively in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version, they will either jump into the air and bring their sword down on the player or launch a short dash while slashing with their sword. When losing their shield, they have the same attack patterns as the Egg Fighter: Sword.

There are several ways to bypass the Egg Fighter: Knights' shields. In the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version, in the daytime Action Stages, the Egg Fighter: Knights can be attacked with the Homing Attack if the player strikes them before they can put up their shields, and in the nighttime Action Stages the shields can be broken if hit with strong combo attacks or dropped when the player initiates a Critical Attack. Additionally, the shields cannot block a Sonic Boost or an attack from the rear, and deflecting a Homing Attack will leave them vulnerable to another.
