Useful against: Edit

Despite his low damage statistics, the Knight has such high health that he is a strong counter for cards such as the Witch. His hit speed also makes him a good counter for slow-hitting card (Hit speed 1.5<) such as the Mini P.E.K.K.A and the Prince.

Useless against: Edit

The Knight is vulnerable to being crowded out, so troops like Goblins, Spear Goblins or even Skeletons can counter it. It is not a good line leader, as 14 Level 1 Crown Tower shots kill it, so it is weak especially when it is defended against.

How to use: Edit

The Knight is an excellent back up to Building-Targetters, such as the Giant or the Hog Rider, even more so when it has back up like Spear Goblins or Archers. It can be used to slay Giants, but its low damage means the Giant would get off a few shots.
