The Flying Armor, also known as Cloaked Knight, is a knight with levitation power that uses one or two flying swords.


Castlevania: Symphony of the NightEdit

A Flying Armor first made its appearance as an enemy found in both Clock Towers of Symphony of the Night, where it is known as the Cloaked Knight in North America. It hovers in one spot for a long time, periodically moving to a new resting place. It never physically attacks the player, but rather sends out its flying and spinning sword to do the work. The Flying Armor was later added to the Reverse Garden in the Sega Saturn version of the game.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

One does not actually fight it in Aria of Sorrow, but its soul can be obtained in a Soul Container early in the game in a section of the Castle Corridor that leads to both the Floating Garden and the Underground Reservoir. This soul allows Soma to hold the jump button while in the air to slowly float to the ground, and can be used to reach areas otherwise not accessible. The soul is also available in a similar location in the mobile version of the game.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

In Dawn of Sorrow, it appears as the first boss of the game. The boss version of the Flying Armor is much larger. It still hovers in the air, but instead of a single sword, has two very large swords that float on either side and get sent out in tandem to attack Soma in various patterns. Its soul, which is always collected, acts in the same manner that it did during Aria of Sorrow, except that you can now see the form of the Flying Armor behind Soma as he coasts through the air. Interestingly, when Soma defeats the Flying Armor and moves on to the next room, a helmet and two swords that look exactly like those of the Flying Armor, exept for the fact that they are a light blue color, are hanging on the wall. A simplified version of the boss can be fought in the trial version of the mobile version of the game available on Konami of Europe's web site.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

The Flying Armor reappeared in its Symphony of the Night form in Portrait of Ruin. They are found as early as the Nation of Fools, and only two appear in the corridor underneath the room where Legion can be fought. More appear later in the Tower of Death, but they are still semi-elusive. It is interesting to note that he drops a Heaven's Sword in both games, which is a sword that can be thrown and returned.
