A Damaged Knight is a pale, battered knight covered in Nightmare Fuel. It has same base stats as the Clockwork Knight and drops 1 Gears, plus has a chance to also drop Nightmare Fuel and/or Thulecite Fragments. It occurs naturally in the Ruins, but also has a chance to spawn from Broken Clockworks when they are destroyed.

The player can spawn an allied Damaged Knight (or any other chess piece) by using 3 Gears to repair a pile of Broken Clockworks.

A recommended way to kill Knights is by kiting them. When in groups, it is recommended to separate one from the rest of the group, killing it, then separating another. As they usually do their battle cry before attempting to attack again, players may find it effective to attack a Knight while it is doing this, then backing away as soon as it tries to headbutt the player.

Befriending at least 5 Pigs can easily kill all the Knights and other chess monsters around the Wooden Thing. Alternatively, the attacks of the Clockwork Rook will damage the other chess monsters. When trying to kill a Knight for its Gears, do not use fire. A death by fire will cause it to drop Ashes instead.

Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill Clockwork Knights when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.
