Knight Gundam is originally a super-deformed MS as opposed to the giant version that appears in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3. He is first modeled after Gundam and Super Gundam, but his Warriors version is closer to a Gundam Mk-III design.

Knight Gundam (騎士ガンダム or ナイトガンダム) comes from an alternate RPG universe within the SD Gundam series, a Western fantasy world which has humans and Mobile Suits coexisting with one another. Mobile Suits are depicted as sentient and possess their own personalities like people. Saddarc World is made as a contrast to the Japanese styled alternate universe found for Musha Gundam. While known to be separate entities, they have overlapping characters and story elements throughout their incarnations.

A mysterious Mobile Suit who has lost his memory, Knight Gundam is never-the-less a hero of justice who saves the innocent. As he first appeared within the Lacroix Kingdom in Saddarc World, he earns early fame by saving Princess Fraw from monsters in the forest. Brought before the king to express his gratitude, he is soon informed of the travesties caused by the Demon King throughout the land. The king is surprised to hear Knight Gundam's name because he has the same name of a Gundam that defeated the evil Satan Gundam eons ago.

Donned as a hero by the king, he is entrusted with saving the land from the Demon King's tyranny. With his three fellow comrades, he journeys to gain treasured weapons from the Three Gods. A master of swordplay and magic, he is eventually knighted as Versal Knight Gundam (バーサル騎士ガンダム) through his heroics. Though he disappears from the pages of history after defeating the Demon King, he becomes a legendary Gundam heralded for all time in Saddarc World.

Mission ModeEdit

Sometime after he saves Lacroix Kingdom, Knight Gundam is mysteriously transported to the alternate world to challenge the will of man. He appears within all of the original story modes, wishing to know the pilots' reasons for fighting. To test their resolve, he challenges them at the end of their respective arcs in a decisive showdown. After he is defeated by the various factions, he feels the world has done their part in uniting the pilots together. However, he feels there is something lacking, as though only one result has been found through the pilots understanding one another.

When the pilots unite in order to strive for reform, Knight Gundam contacts them and declares himself their enemy. He knows that each war needs a solid conclusion and decides that he shall be the one who should end it, while the pilots' hearts are still united. By his actions, he wants them to create an age where war has completely ended. Players are only given one shot in their final duel with Knight Gundam; if they're shot down, they cannot be regenerated and will have to restart the mission from scratch. Knight Gundam compliments his opponents upon his fair defeat and transports his spirit to another world through a vortex of light. Wishing them the best, his lifeless Mobile Suit is left behind on the mysterious world. When all of the original story routes are finished, players can then pilot his Mobile Suit with other characters.

To unlock a sentient Knight Gundam for usage, a playable character needs to gain a level 3 friendship rating with him by completing his Special Mission, "I am Knight Gundam!". He can only be Knight Gundam as a playable character and cannot gain licenses or use other Mobile Suits. Strangely, he can become a Newtype in spite of being a mecha. Once he is unlocked as a playable character, players can finish two other Special Missions dedicated to him. They roughly aim to reenact his heroics as a former knight of Lacroix Kingdom.


Like his name suggests, Knight Gundam is a hero who dictates his actions with codes of ancient chivalry. He is kind and thoughtful, seeking to protect the weak from any danger. Valiant in his duties, he is also courteous towards his comrades and damsels in distress. Though not much is known about his real identity, Knight Gundam lives with integrity by caring for the well being of others over his own.

He views Amuro as his former comrade in arms from Lacroix Kingdom, Knight Amuro, and treats him warmly. On the same note, he is suspicious of Char due to his treacherous experiences with the enigma, Knight Char. His praise for "Mr. Musha" is a nod to their alternate universes' creation and Knight Gundam's own possible origins.

Knight Gundam's stats are aimed to be balanced in all areas. All of his properties are above average and towards the top rankings, but they fall short of other characters' stats in the top. While he may not excel in a single area of interest like other pilots, he is the strongest overall character in the game. He even tops Amuro, the character who is considered the number one pilot in the games.

Ironically, his Mobile Suit doesn't have the best stats and still falls behind Burning Gundam and Musha Gundam by two points.


Knight Gundam has a special SP attack quote with Char. He says special praise for Musha Gundam, Amuro, Char, and Setsuna. He also expresses his concern for female pilots.

He cannot be made a pilot's partner and therefore has no Partner Strike. He can become an available Operator if the players build their friendship levels with him to maximum (level 5).
