The Knight is the main antagonist from the 2011 short film, Dragonboy. He is a boy who plays a role of a knight at the school play, and fights the boy-dragon to get the girl-princess's heart.
He was voiced by Austin Majors.
At the school play, the knight has to save the beautiful princess before a dangerous and terrifying dragon. However, the dragon actually falls in love with the princess and it is pure, gentle love, the exact opposite of the knight who only flaunts to get everyone's attention.
When the dragon accidentally falls down on the stage, the princess helps him. However, he is then attacked by the destructive knight, who defeats him and starts kissing the princess so much, although she visibly doesn't want to. The dragon stands up to protect her and the arrogant and manipulative knight decides to assassinate him once and for all.
As they are approaching to each other, the knight with a sword and the dragon with bare hands, the knight hits the dragon's face, but his shaken rival is able to strike back the same way in no time. The viewers start encouraging the dragon, much to the knight's anger.
The furious knight frantically begins to chase the dragon and swishes the sword all around, destroying all coulisses on the stage. Suddenly, the dragon bowls over and falls down. The knight doesn't hesitate, grabs him, and prepares to assassinate the dragon with his sword. The princess (who has enough of passive standing) pushes the coulisse of the castle, which falls on the knight, knocking him out. The dragon then gives a paper flower to the princess and they hug each other while the curtain is falling down and people are clapping.
The knight is a merciless, abusive, bitter, cruel, greedy, cunning, scornful, traitorous, and manipulative child actor who likes to set free the princess and make her love him and kill the dragon. He is also very compassionate and empathetic, so he can kiss the beautiful princess.
- The Knight was voiced by Austin Majors, who also played Young Jim Hawkins in Disney's 2002 animated film, Treasure Planet.
- He is very similar to Baron Ruber from Warner Brothers' 1998 animated feature film, Quest for Camelot.
- Both are knights.
- Both are evil, violent, traitorous, manipulative, diabolical, murderous, cruel, and arrogant.
- Both want to kill dragons (ironically, the Knight failed and Ruber succeeded).
