“He lands with the force of 1,000 mustaches, then jumps from one foe to the next dealing huge area damage. Stand aside!”
The Mega Knight card is unlocked from Hog Mountain (Arena 10) or a Legendary Chest. He is an area damage, ground, melee troop with very high hitpoints and high damage. He deals spawn damage when he is deployed and jumps to targets that are between 4 and 5 tiles away from him, dealing damage on impact. A Mega Knight card costs 7 Elixir to deploy. The Mega Knight wears black armor and a helmet that covers most of his face and wields two mace-like weapons attached to his arms.
- The Mega Knight’s jump mechanic is not to be confused with the Bandit’s dash ability. His charge time is slower and does not make him invincible. He will still take damage while he’s airborne and can die mid-air.
- Mega Knight is powerful when paired with other high-damaging units like Mini P.E.K.K.A., he will soak the damage and eliminate any ground swarms with his jump damage, and the troops can help him defeat high-hitpoint troops that can distract the Mega Knight easily.
- P.E.K.K.A. is a great counter to Mega Knight. She will quickly defeat the Mega Knight for a neutral Elixir trade, and can then be used in a counterpush.
- The Mega Knight is helpless against air troops such as Minions and Bats so it is best to pair him with other troops that can attack air, such as Archers, the Wizard, or the Executioner.
- An Inferno Tower can take out the Mega Knight as long as the opponent doesn’t have a Zap or any other card that can reset the Inferno Tower.
- The Zap spell will not stop the Mega Knight from jumping once his charge initiates. The only spell that can stop the jump is The Log.
- The Mega Knight can deny a Hog Rider completely if placed between the Arena Tower and the bridge.
- A Skeleton Army is not an effective counter. In most cases, the Mega Knight will kill the Skeleton Army even when he’s surrounded. However, if he’s half health, it’s effective to use Skeleton Army on him.
- The Prince can take out the Mega Knight on your side if you place him far enough from the Mega Knight to have time to deploy but close enough so that the Mega Knight doesn’t have enough distance to perform a jump attack.
- The Mega Knight can be used to counter a Goblin Barrel. His spawn damage can defeat all three Goblins if timed correctly — ideally, he should be deployed at the tower when the barrel crosses the river.
- One of the best swarms troops you can use to surround the Mega Knight are Barbarians. It takes the Mega Knight three shots to kill one Barbarian. The Barbarians will take out the Mega Knight with three Barbarians to spare.
- He and the Electro Wizard are the only troops that deal Spawn Damage. Unlike the Electro Wizard, however, the Mega Knight’s spawn damage does not affect air units.
- He has the most hitpoints out of all the legendary cards.
- He is tied with the Lava Hound for the most expensive legendary card.
- He has the same damage as an equal level The Log.
- If the language is set to Italian, the description states that he lands with “the force of 100 mustaches”, as opposed to 1,000 in other languages. This is likely a translation oversight.
- Upon death, the Mega Knight drops his maces. The other units that drop items are the Sparky, the Dark Prince, the Guards, the Knight, the Mega Minion, the Executioner and the Cannon Cart.
