King Knight is a major antagonist in the indie video game Shovel Knight. He works for The Enchantress as one of the eight members of the Order of No Quarter. He is encountered by Shovel Knight at the end of Pridemoor Keep. King Knight is also the main protagonist of the prequel DLC Shovel Knight: King of Cards.
When the Enchantress was starting her reign of terror, she created a small team of eight knights known as the Order of No Quarter. One of the members was King Knight. Shovel Knight had to venture toward various areas to stop the Order. While Shovel Knight was venturing towards the end of Pridemoor Keep, he eventually came across King Knight. Both Shovel Knight and King Knight fought each other, and King Knight ended up losing to Shovel Knight.
Later on, while Shovel Knight was venturing in the Tower of Fate, he eventually came across King Knight, as well as the other members of the Order of No Quarter he defeated. Shovel Knight had to endure a Boss-Rush with all the knights, including King Knight. In the end, Shovel Knight managed to defeat all eight knights, including King Knight. After Shovel Knight managed to defeat all eight members of The Order of No Quarter, King Knight and the other members are hanging on the edge of the tower for dear life. Shovel Knight can choose whether to save them or leave them to die.
Regardless of what Shovel Knight chooses to do, they are all shown in the epilogue during the credits, with some of them reforming and others paying for their actions. After Shovel Knight and Shield Knight defeated The Enchantress, the real king of Pridemoor Keep returns along with all his subjects, King Knight became a lowly servant and was forced to clean his floors.
