This page is for Fright Knight, the ghost. For the episode, see Fright Night.

Fright Knight is an ancient and powerful ghost, self-described as the spirit of Halloween and both the Ghost King's minion and second-in-command.


Season 1

In the episode "Fright Night" Fright Knight, described as 'The Spirit of Halloween,' was released as a result of Danny attempting to borrow his sword for a haunted-house decorating Halloween contest.

He chases after him and takes over Amity Park with his sword, the Soul Shredder, which causes people to disappear to a dimension where they experience their greatest fears (which include Mr. Lancer in a dimension where he is forced to constantly scratch a chalkboard while doing calculus equations, and Tucker on a deserted island in his boxers with no technology).

His sword is also one of the few things that dwell in the Ghost Zone that has a corporeal form, as Danny was able to grasp it in his human state, though it seems to lose this quality upon entering the real world. Fright Knight also rides around on a bat-winged Pegasus ghost known as Nightmare.

Danny, however, managed to trap him inside a pumpkin by placing his sword inside and saying the poem to seal him within it.

Season 2

He returned in "Reign Storm", where it is revealed that he was a servant of Pariah Dark. He helps his master take over Amity Park, but at the end, turns into one of the many ghosts who turns against the king. He also apparently made a deal with Vlad Plasmius, though it is unknown what that deal is.

It is most likely that he works for Vlad now. In the end, he appears right behind Vlad to help Danny trap the king. He now follows no one until the next time someone opens the Sarcophagus of Forever Sleep.

In the beginning of "The Ultimate Enemy", he works for Dark Danny in an alternate future. He attacks Valerie after the Ghost Shield goes down and basically chases her into Fenton Works.

Season 3

He made a cameo in "Frightmare" in a dream sequence of Danny's while he was under a sleep spell from Nocturne.

Fright Knight's final appearance is in the series finale, "Phantom Planet". He is one of the many ghosts who helps Danny and Skulker turn the entire planet intangible, so that an asteroid can pass through it.


He has extremely long purple hair and green eyes. His outfit consists of black full-body armor, with gray shoulder guards, purple cape, hood of fire, gray flaming gauntlets, and flaming boots. He wears a white skull at the center of his waist.


A ruthless knight, Fright Knight lives to strike fear into the hearts of anyone he's against. If that doesn't work, he prefers to fight his way, using his skills to proclaim his superiority.

It seems he either teams up or works for anyone whom might be of potential benefit to him. This ranges from Pariah Dark, a ghost capable of subduing others with his power, to Plasmius, who suggests making a deal between the two of them.

He also appears to have a flair for dramatics, likes to do poetry, and does nearly everything in a dramatic way, like bellowing his warning to Danny and Vlad in the form of a poem.


Nightmare is Fright Knight's horse, a giant bat-winged Alicorn, with sharp fangs and teeth, red eyes, a horn on the top of his head, and a flaming green mane, with a tail and hooves (similar to Fright Knight's own cape).

Nightmare is also presumably male according to the lack of eyelashes and the sound of his neighing. He also has armor around his head and neck with an insignia of a pumpkin with bones going through it (Like the skull and crossbones of a pirate's flag).

As shown in "Fright Night," he and his master are trapped in a pumpkin, but Nightmare has to be released separately.

Powers and abilities


Fright Knight is an incredibly powerful ghost, enough to attract the attention of Vlad, who wanted him as his minion. These are the powers he has displayed, though it is unknown if he has more:

  • Intangibilityinvisibility and flight: He can fly by his own powers, sometimes aided by his horse, Nightmare, or by teleporting. His intangibility allows him to phase his hands through the Fenton Ghost Portal and open it, unlike most ghosts.
  • Ghost Ray: He is able to fire pink ghost rays from his eyes. Often used as a primary ability, such as shooting down Danny for taking his famed Soul Shredder. With the Soul Shredder he can fire green color ghost rays.
    • Flaming Crystal Meteor: The Fright Knight can summon and throw purple flaming crystal meteors that are engulfed in purple flames, with incredible destructive power that is extremely powerful explosive damage upon impact. The size of the crystal meteor can vary based on his desire.
  • Supernatural strength: The Fright Knight is able to lift someone off the ground with little effort and throw them through walls with little more than a mere move of his hand, as well as open the doors to the Fenton Portal and break the walls, very easily. He is also able to knock a person or ghost unconscious with one punch and hold ghosts as strong as Vlad Plasmius in an unbreakable grip with one hand.
  • Supernatural Durability: Fright Knight is considerably durable, as shown during both of his main appearances. Physical attacks have little if any effect on him. Only the greatest physical force, energy beams and explosions can damage him, but they will only stop him for a short while before he returns to the fight, showing no wounds whatsoever. In "Fright Night", Danny threw him at a giant clock, which only disoriented him briefly. In "Reign Storm", he survived the combined attacks of Valerie, Danny, and Vlad without any visible wound or injury, the only result being that he was left stunned for a few moments.
  • Supernatural Stamina: He can fight for seemingly hours on end without having any signs of fatigue.
  • Teleportation: He can do so with both his sword's power and his own, disappearing in an explosion of bats (though he only seems to do this under his own power, rather than the sword). He can teleport himself anywhere. With the sword he is able to teleport in a bolt of lightning.
  • Telekinesis: In "Reign Storm," he was able to summon his sword from a long distance.
  • Nightmare Summoning: The Fright Knight can summon his horse, Nightmare, that he uses for transportation.


  • Swordsmanship: He is very skilled in the art of swordsmanship.
  • Poet: He can make up poems on the spot.


  • Soul Shredder: In addition to his powers, he also gets others from his sword, which is the container of most of his powers. It is both the Fright Knight's greatest power and his main weakness. The sword can be used by everyone. However, only the Fright Knight knows how to use all of its powers, while other users can only use those powers that require physical contact with the edge of the sword.


  • Standard Ghost Weakness: like other ghost his isn't immune to EctoraniumBlood Blossoms and Anti-Ghost weapons
  • Pumpkins: His main weakness is that if someone puts his sword inside a pumpkin and recites the following verse he is sent back to the Ghost Zone. The poem is as follows:
To cease the storm
to end the fear
the sword must sheath
in pumpkin near.


Season 1

Season 2

Season 3


Fright Night

  • "FOOL! You have released me! Return to me my sword so my reign of terror can begin anew!"
  • "It was not a request; whelp, IT WAS A DEMAND!"
  • "Free... and once I regain possession of my sword, I will transform this world into my own personal pantheon of terror and then I WILL RULE!"
  • "I know that terror; it carries the scent of my blade!"
  • "You! Tell me, where are you running from?"
  • "Yes; upon yonder hill lays the instrument of my ultimate ascendency: MY SOUL SHREDDER!!!"
  • "This is only the beginning!"
  • "I am the Fright Knight, the Spirit of Halloween!"
  • "And once this ecto-storm touches every corner of this globe, all these transformations will be permanent and this, shall be my new domain!"
  • "My sword, at last!"
  • "I sent him to where all who feel the sting of my blade are sent; a dimension where his worst fears come to life."
  • "LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF YOUR DOOM; soon my storm shall consume this planet, the world WILL be forever transformed, AND NO ONE CAN STOP ME!"
  • "Perhaps, but you will never find it!"
  • "What?"
  • "No, No, NO!"

Reign Storm

  • "King Pariah! You're up."
  • "A deal?"
  • "Go, and find the King's Ring!"
  • "The King's prize, return it!"
  • "Fool. All I wanted to do was to seize the ring and return to Pariah's Keep, but now you give me no choice! By the authority vested in me by my Lord and Liege... I claim this town, now and forever, under the banner of Lord Pariah, THE KING OF ALL GHOSTS!"
  • "The sword is sunk, your die now cast! The sword removed shall signal fast. Make reappear the ring thou hast, or your next day shall be your last!"


  • Fright Knight shares some similarities with Ares from DC Comics.
  • His horse’s name may be a pun because "mare" is a synonym for "horse", thus implying his name is a pun for "Night-Mare".
  • Fright Knight could be seen as a Neutral Evil. As in the Nickelodeon comic "Bring Back My Body to Me" he is willing to let Danny go and punish Vlad for stealing from him.
