KnightChessmon (White) is a Puppet Digimon. It is an expert at throwing its gigantic Darts. Although it is unskilled in close combat, it capitalizes on its thoroughbred-like leg strength, jumping over the opponent and confounding them with its leaping power. Its catchphrase is, "Joust!".[4]


  • Big Darts: Charges foe at a high-speed gallop.
  • Gallop Whole: Leaps high into the sky and lands with a blow that tramples the opponent.
  • Knight Lancer: Tilts the Darts and charges the opponent.


KnightChessmon draws inspiration from the white Knight chess piece, with its general body looking the same as the chess piece crossed with a centaur. It wields a gigantic dart on its shoulder.
