King Arthur's horse is a character that appears in Sonic and the Black Knight. It is a horse made of dark magic and the personal steed of King Arthur, who uses it as his main method of transportation.

Appearance

King Arthur's steed is a non-anthropomorphic horse made completely of dark magic, standing even taller than its rider. It is quite muscular with black fur, pupil-less yellow eyes, and a thin tail.

The beast is covered in heavy armor. This armor consist of pointy grey and black leg covers, dark golden plating running up its neck to its muzzle, a black, purple and red neck band, a dark golden chest plate with a purple eye on it, and multilayered dark golden back armor with elaborate symbols and a red saddle.

History

During his reign as the Black Knight, King Arthur used his horse to pursue and corner Merlina the Wizard. When Sonic the Hedgehog then showed up and escaped with Merlina after dispatching Arthur's minions, Arthur's horse carried its rider during Arthur's search for the pair after Arthur gave his knights new assignments. Upon finding Sonic, Arthur and his horse had a brief fight with Sonic and Caliburn before leaving him to his own futile efforts to stand against them.

King Arthur's horse is considerably fast, seemingly able to run on par with Sonic. It is extremely strong physically as well, being able to carry King Arthur despite the heavy armor and weaponry the king utilizes.
