The Hell Knight is a towering brute built for combat deep in the bowels of Hell. These diabolical beasts are the prized gladiators of the demon-horde. They relentlessly stomp towards their target, smashing their massive fists into the ground to create shockwaves that stagger their opponent and leave them vulnerable to bone-crushing melee attacks. The Hell Knight's powerful legs allow it to leap across large distances effortlessly, quickly closing the gap to its enemy.

The Hell Knight (or Knight of Hell, if you prefer) is a subordinate to the Baron of Hell and is comparable to it in physical strength. These beings are eyeless and malformed, maintaining a completely flat face (although they function very well).

Standard Equipment: None

Intelligence: Unknown. Takes orders from the Baron of Hell, but is sufficiently skilled in combat on its own.

Weaknesses: Likely as not to attack anything it comes across, especially when hit by stray projectiles. Extremely reliant on brute force during most encounters, lacking any sort of elaborate combat tactics.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Shockwave: The Hell Knight will smash the ground, temporarily stunning those around it and giving it a chance to leap and attack
  • CQC: Stated to be a close quarters combat master of sorts, often delivering uppercuts and lunge attacks.
  • Plasma Bolt: Similar to that of the Baron of Hell. The Hell Knight generates a bolt of plasma within its hand before hurling it at its opponent.

Note: Despite being a composite profile of every incarnation of the Hell Knight to appear within the series, the monster's physical stats are mainly drawn from the original games and the 2016 reboot. DOOM 3 is set within a different continuity from the rest of the series and is generally inconsistent with the other titles, so their significantly higher stats within that game should be considered an outlier.
