Fight Me!
~ Meta Knight's taunt quote

Meta Knight is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with the other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on March 20, 2015. Atsushi Kisa'ichi (Japanese) and Eric Newsome (English) provide the role for Meta Knight which uses voice clips borrowed from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Meta Knight is a mysterious character who is seen as both a hero and a villain, and more generally an anti-hero, in the Kirby series. He is sometimes cast as an antagonist to Kirby, but his intentions are not generally portrayed as evil. In certain instances, he sends his troops, the Meta-Knights, as enemies against the pink protagonist as a sort of training.

Meta Knight is a blue Kirby-like being cloaked in armor, with glowing yellow eyes visible underneath a silver mask. His primary weapon is a golden, pronged sword named Galaxia. He wears a cape that can turn into bat-like wings, which he uses to take flight. On certain occasions, he will throw off his cape, revealing his wings underneath. Meta Knight's mask breaks almost every time he is defeated, revealing a face very similar to Kirby's. Upon defeat, Meta Knight immediately wraps himself within his cape and flees.

In battle, Meta Knight has a notable code of honor. He always provides a sword to Kirby in order to have an equal duel; in some games, such as Kirby Super Star and Kirby Star Allies, there may be certain circumstances that cause him to make the first move when Kirby takes too long to get the weapon. However, in contrast to his code of honor, Meta Knight is also occasionally shown to be forceful and arrogant. This is best demonstrated in the "Revenge of Meta Knight" mode of Kirby Super Star, where Meta Knight attempts to use his battleship, the Halberd, to take control of Dream Land and end its carefree lifestyle.
