Knight Aberrant

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Knight Aberrant is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in the original Dragon Quest. It is an axe-wielding, armor-clad knight capable of putting enemies to sleep with its magic.

Characteristics[edit]

Knight aberrants are humanoid knights armored from head to top in grey and dark purple armor with lavender sabatons, gauntlets, a lavender gem on their belts, and a tall lavender plume on their helmets. They wield axes in their right hands and a round shield in the same color as the armor with gold in the center, though in some games they forgo using their shields. Compared to their blue-armored brothers, the knight aberrant are deadlier due to their ability to cast Snooze in battle instead of Fizzle.

Captain N: The Game Master[edit]

An Axe knight appears in Episode 23 "Trojan Dragon". It appeared in a cave guarding both the Flame sword and the Silver shield, only to lose both of them to Captain N. Axe knight is the only other character besides the Dragonlord, Blue dragon and Slimes that appeared in the series. Axe knight is immune to the Zapper, while dodged due to Kevin's use of the pause button on his Power Pad.

Etymology[edit]

Aberrant is a synonym for deviant, meaning a person or thing that deviates from what is normal and accepted.

Trivia[edit]

  • The monster's field notes from Dragon Quest Heroes II are partially incorrect when they refer to the knight aberrant miniboss in Dragon Quest I. The monster is guarding Erdrick's armour, not Erdrick's sword.
