Not to be confused with Egg Knight.

An armored and armed Egg Pawn.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Knight Pawn[1] (エッグポーン (やり)[2] Eggupōn (yari)?, lit. "Egg Pawn (spear)") is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced Pawn Series[3] Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.


Knight Pawns have the body model of an Egg Pawn, but are colored black and gray instead of the typical orange-red. They also wield lances, have knight-like helmets on the top of their heads, and have cyan eyes.

Game appearances

Sonic Rush


In Sonic Rush, Knight Pawns appear only in Water Palace. Their attack pattern is similar to a regular Egg Pawn; they run at Sonic or Blaze and attack them with their lances. They can be defeated by either a Burst Dash/Spin Dash, Fire Boost/Super Boost or by Axel/Spin jumping on their heads. Also, upon their destruction, they release an Animal.

Sonic Generations

In the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations, Knight Pawns from somewhere across spacetime appear as enemies in Water Palace.

In gameplay, Knight Pawns only appear in non-watery areas. They can be found walking around the area, patrolling from the left to right and vice versa. When they spot Sonic nearby however, an exclamation mark appears above their head before they dash at him with their lance. Regardless, they are easily taken out with a single attack.
