- "The man who defeated us is also the same man who created that shadowy imp. A man from the desert wastes... He is not Vaati."
- — Red Knight
The Red Knight is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. A red-haired Knight of Hyrule, he is on guard in the area where the Red Jewel is located. At one point, the Red Knight was sucked into the Dark World and transformed into a Base Creature of Magic.
Shortly after leaving the Zuna village, Link encounters the Base Creature of Magic in the Desert of Doubt. After he destroys the Knight Mark, lifting the curse, the Red Knight returns to normal. He tells Link that he and his fellow knights were "bested by a foe with a mighty weapon", referring to Ganon and the Trident. He goes on to explain that Ganon created Shadow Link as a means of tricking the hero into breaking the seal placed on Vaati.
The Red Knight has the same armor, sword, and shield as the Chief Soldiers, though he is not wearing a helmet.
