The Armored Knight is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts II and in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix.


An Armored Knight, true to its name, is a very thin, humanoid Heartless clad from head to toe in black, grey, and silver armor. Its spherical, pitch-black head and glowing, yellow eyes are visible in its helmet, and there are two red spirals decorating its visor. It also carries a sword with a gold guard and handle. Its Heartless emblem is on its abdomen.

The Armored Knight's name is a direct reference to its appearance, which is reminiscent of armor-clad knights.


Kingdom Hearts II

Armored Knights appear for the first time towards the Battle of 1000 Heartless in Hollow Bastion. In the battle proper, Sora has to defeat a thousand Heartless, many of which are Armored Knights, alone. Later, during a face-off against Saïx, Sora is surrounded by a group of Armored Knights summoned by Saïx, who expects him to fight them and release the hearts contained inside them. It is then that Sora and company are dragged into the Realm of Darkness by Maleficent.

During the return visits to the various world, Armored Knights appear much more often, becoming almost as common as shadows.

Armored Knights appear in the scene in The Hall of Empty Melodies, but don't appear in any other part of the world.


They have very low HP, and their Reaction Command, Rising Sun, is very powerful. However, they do tend to swarm in large numbers. Use the Reaction Command to easily defeat them.
