“ He lands with the force of 1,000 mustaches, then jumps from one foe to the next dealing huge area damage. Stand aside!”
The Mega Knight is unlocked from Arena 7 (Royal Arena). The Mega Knight lands with a boom, dealing area damage similar to a Fireball, then continues on his ramage by jumping for unit to unit, dealing area damage to every unit he encounters.
Best Strategies for using Mega Knight
At its release, the Mega Knight was one of the most dominating new cards. It was able to demolish pushes, and move on to the opponent’s tower and deal huge damage. Now, more counter cards have been released and he has been toned down. Although still isn’t the “Meta” Knight, he can still be very dangerous if you don’t know how to properly counter him.
Using the Mega Knight is relatively simple to use on offense. You want to focus on targeting “fireballies” which can be taken out in one hit after being hit by the Mega Knight’s deploy damage. Also, charging units are disrupted by the Mega Knight, so the Battle Ram and Ram Rider make great targets. The Hog Rider is also countered extremely well by the Mega Knight. With correct timing, you can prevent him from getting a single hit on your tower. After taking out your opponent’s push, you then should support your Mega Knight with complementary units. Splash units, Minions, and the Skeleton Barrel all complement him well. A well-timed spell can also be devastating.
The Mega Knight has few effective counters. His direct counter is the PEKKA, whose damage advantage can completely outclass the Mega Knight’s weak splash damage. The Rascals are also very effective due to splash not hitting the girls as well. The Princes are both good, and the Inferno Tower can be effective, but watch out for a Zap and tanking Minions. Without these specific counters, you want to use a combination of a mini-tank or tank killer and a support troop. Do not use splash units, even the Skeleton Army, as he will splash them all. Barbarians are decent though due to their higher health.
Best Decks for Mega Knight
Most decks are based around the common Mega Goblins deck. Variations include adding the Prince or Ram Rider to replace the Miner.
The Mega Knight will definitely struggle against PEKKA, and this requires you to find creative ways to get in damage. However, you can excel at taking care of their pesky bridge spam cards.
The Mega Knight can be replaced by PEKKA, but the support cards for each are different.
