- This page is for the original animated incarnation from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. For other incarnations, see Black Knight (disambiguation).
|Black Knight (What A Night For A Knight)|
|Motive||To conceal his art forgery crimes|
|First appearance||SDWAY: What A Night For A Knight|
A traditional English large, black, empty suit of armour with red feathers on his helmet.
Powers and abilities
It only comes alive on nights when the Moon is full. He was also pretty strong and very agile considering suits of armor can greatly reduce a person's ability to run, for example.
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!
Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo found a mysterious black knight belonging to a Professor Hyde White that was nowhere to be found. Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby returned the black knight to the museum. When there, they discovered that Hyde White had no longer left the Knight, but was missing, and the knight had come to life. Mystery Inc. managed to trap the Black Knight and revealed that it was Mr. Wickles.
