Kirby: Squeak Squad artwork
Heavy Knight is a large enemy that appears in several Kirby games. It is a large, heavily armored knight with red metal plating and a spike on its head or helmet. It has a big sword to slice enemies. Its sword is slower than Sword Knight's, but it is also bigger and stronger. Heavy Knight gives Kirby the Sword ability when inhaled with a Super Inhale.
When Kirby is possessing Heavy Knight as Ghost Kirby, he can use the sword and lunge it forward if the player double-taps the side button on the +Control Pad. Also, because of its heavy armor and slow speed, it is hard to move around.
- Heavy Knight's official artwork depicts it with gold spikes on each shoulder pauldron. Its in-game sprite, however, has only two crimson spikes per pauldron.
- HR-D3 and Metal General's heads resemble that of Heavy Knight.
