Shadow Knight

Cast ground tracking explosions
High attack power


The Shadow Knight is found in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow as a common enemy in the Chaotic Realm. They are the strongest variant of the Great Armor enemies found in the game in terms of attack, but they lack the battery of resistances that the Final Guard has, instead being weak to Holy damage. This means they are substantially easier to kill than the Final Guard in practice.

Shadow Knight can inflict three kinds of damage types. Touching its body or shield causes non-elemental damage. Touching its blade causes sword damage. Getting hit by its ground explosion causes fire damage. Each of these attacks use 100% of his STR.

A Shadow Knight has almost all the same moves as a Final Guard, the only move it doesn't have is guarding. The soul it yields is the Guardian Shadow Knight guardian soul, which behaves much like the Creaking Skull, Big Golem and Cagnazzo guardian souls, as it summons a Shadow Knight to attack any enemies who try to damage Soma. It's not as powerful as Creaking Skull, but has faster attack speed. It covers the same range as Big Golem.
