— The Black Knight[src]

The Black Knight was the name of the persona and metal suit of armor created by Penelope for her own use while she was working for Cyrille Le Paradox. She used the persona to take over Medieval England and capture Sir Galleth Cooper.

The Black Knight was voiced by Annette Toutonghi.


Le Paradox had hired Penelope to take over Medieval England and steal Sir Galleth's cane for him. Penelope utilized her knowledge of machines to create her own suit of armor, nicknamed the Black Knight. Unlike her previous Black Baron suit, the Black Knight was larger and more powerful, and even has the ability to be upgraded into a giant mech that was four times as large.

Penelope took this a step further; she created a new robotic guard and manufactured them to make a large army to patrol Medieval England. Sir Galleth attempted to combat these guards and this new mysterious robot, but Penelope equipped the armor with multiple weapons, such as rocket launchers, that took care of Galleth easily.

When the Cooper Gang came to Medieval England, they had believed that the robot was conscious and did not have anyone in it, but they soon realized that Penelope was the one controlling the armor, sending Bentley into a state of depression as the rest of the Gang attempted to combat her. When Sir Galleth attempts to smash the Black Knight armor, she catches his cane and gives it to a Rat Trooper. She utilized her giant mech in battle against Sly Cooper. Sly destroyed it, but caught himself under a piece of the armor. Before Penelope could silence Sly, Bentley came to his rescue in his own mech-suit (made from the remains of the Moat Monster) and defeated Penelope and her suit.


Physical appearanceEdit

The Black Knight is a black suit of armor that makes the wearer look strong and bulky. It has a red light that allows the wearer to see through the armor, and makes the wearer's voice sound more mechanical. When walking, the ground shakes on every step the armor makes. The armor is equipped with powerful metal fists and a giant ax that can be used in battle, and is able to be upgraded into a much larger version.

The larger mech is white and very bulky. It does not come with a voice modulator as the standard Black Knight armor does, but it is more powerful in its attacks. It has a rocket launcher that can fire numerous rockets at once, a large laser, and the arms and core can even put an energy shield around the entire mech. The shield itself has a few weak points that can be fired through, and if the arm or core that is generating the shield is damaged, the shield falls. This version of the Black Knight also lacks legs, making it remain stationary.



The Black knight can punch and use Melee attack combos in its first form, this combo includes punching the player about two times then jumping up to smash the ground. In its first form it also has a red light projected from its visor like light on its head, this light acts as a flashlight and if you are in this radius you are seen (this only happens in the missions where you tail it). The Black Knight also has a standard medieval ax but never uses it.

The Black Onight has most of its abilities in its large mech form. In this form it's attacks are very similar to the Moat Monster's attacks but it also has some different ones. The Black Knight can punch the ground with its giant arms and cause the ground to shake, also it can shoot out rows of missiles. Also in its large mech form it can shoot massive blue lasers out of its eyes(these lasers cut Sly's ropes to the Black Knight's arms if he isn't fast enough), also it can summon small robotic dragons that don't take to much damage and are killed in one hit but they can be a menace if there are multiple. Finally it can project a red circular force field that protects it's arms and chest, this force field has several holes in it however and Sly can easily slip arrows through these holes. If the player hits both arms twice and disarms the large mech's massive arms it still has most of its arsenal and is only unable to punch the ground.



  • Despite wielding an axe, the Black Knight never actually uses it.
  • The Black Knight was the second known disguise that Penelope used next to the Black Baron. It can be noted that Penelope used "Black" as the first word in both of her aliases.
  • Several clues hint that Penelope is the Black Knight, and joined Le Paradox:
    • The blueprints to the Black Knight can be seen in the room Bentley investigates when Penelope disappears in the introduction cutscene.
    • Penelope's emblem can be seen inside Le Paradox's blimp, which is visible as early as Go West Young Raccoon.
    • Penelope's emblem is also visible on the Black Knight armor itself.
    • The Black Knight's voice is Penelope's voice played through a robotic filter.
  • The Black Knight seems to pay homage to both similar tech-savvy villains in the Sly series, such as Sir Raleigh and Arpeggio, and traitors, such as Dr. M and Constable Neyla, along with Penelope's other alter ego, the Black Baron. Additionally, the Black Knight despises being second to anyone in intelligence like Captain LeFwee.
