Introduced in Dragon Quest

The Knight aberrant (formerly Axe Knight, MadKnight and Mad Knight) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series. In Dragon Quest, the Knight aberrant appears as an optional boss in the ruined town of Damdara. Fighting it isn't necessary to beat the game, it certainly makes doing so easier since Erdrick's Armor can be found nearby.


Wearing heavy, bulky armor and equipped with an axe and usually a shield, the axe knight is as impressive a physical force as its appearance lets on. In the original NES version of Dragon Quest it was armed only with an axe and faced to the right, likely to differentiate it some from related monsters.
