Knight was introduced in Season 1 of the Duel Masters anime.

He is Shobu's mysterious and soft-spoken mentor.


Season 1[]

While he does not appear in the manga, Knight's character is loosely based on the manga only character NAC. In the English "dub", his inner monologue is a source of much of the show's mature and subtle humor. Despite being Shobu's mentor, he is usually unable to assist his student in times of need due to either Shobu's stubborn attitude or Knight being unable to show up at the scene (Such is the case in Shobu's duel with Hakuoh, when Knight reveals he never taught Shobu about dueling against the Light Civilization). On one occasion, Dr. Root had Knight take on a "Dragon Mask" persona to duel Shobu in order for him to reclaim his tournament pass.

Knight has a very strange personality. He is very mystic and little is known about his past. He has a crush on his secretary and is scared to ask her to go out with him. Sayuki has a huge crush on him. He tried to help Hakuoh when he was in the temple into showing him how the Master was using him but Hakuoh took it that he was jealous of his dueling ability.

Knight is gentle and kind and is a skilled duelist. He knows a lot about dueling. In the second season of the anime, we see him in a pink shirt and without his customary glasses.


Season 1[]

He used a Light and Fire deck in the Playing with a Full Deck episode against Shobu.

He also gave Joe a powerful light deck for him to test the full extent of Shobu´s abilities.

During season 2, Knight dueled against Shobu again and this time he played a deck with a great number of Light cards and a smaller number of Fire Cards.

Duel Masters Charge[]

In this season, Knight used a Fire and Nature civilization deck based on Bombazar, Dragon of Destiny.

Duel Masters: Shadow of the Code[]



  • Much like Sayuki, he was an anime-exclusive character that only appeared in the first season and Charge, and didn't have any appearance starting Zero Duel Masters onward.
    • In the first two anime seasons, he fills in the role of NAC from the manga. The role was later replaced by McKee.
