The Armos Knight is a recurring boss and enemy from the Legend of Zelda games.

They made their debut in The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (1991) where they were the bosses of the Eastern Palace Dungeon. They start as six Knights, the last one of them will move faster and is more aggressive than the others before.

There is one pre-dungeon Armos Knight Boss in Link’s Awakening (1993) in the Southern Face Shrine. The Armos Knights made a pause in the Nintendo 64 Zelda games but returned in Wind Waker (2003) where they had a much different visual look and are common enemies.

Their so far latest appearance was in Four Swords Adventures (2004) where they look more like their earlier designs but behave different and are actually invincible and serve as parts of puzzles a few times.
