Anime appearances

"Legendary Knight" (でんせつ Densetsu no Kishi) is an archetype of the true forms of the three "Legendary Dragons". This archetype was introduced in Dragons of Legend and was featured towards the end of the Waking the Dragons arc of Yu-Gi-Oh!. All monsters of this archetype are Level 8 LIGHT Warrior-Type monsters with 2800 ATK and 1800 DEF.

The "Legendary Knights" are named after Plato's late dialogues and characters that appear in them.

These cards first appeared in the Waking the Dragons arc of Yu-Gi-Oh!.

The three members of the archetype are "Legendary Knight Critias", "Legendary Knight Hermos", and "Legendary Knight Timaeus". All three have an effect that allows them to 'absorb' another card's effect, based on the effect of their corresponding Legendary Dragon.

When "Timaeus" absorbs both "Critias" and "Hermos", they form the Fusion Monster "Timaeus the Knight of Destiny". This card has the effect to gain ATK equal to the ATK of the absorbed monsters. In addition, it cannot not be destroyed by battle; these two effects were ultimately combined to destroy Dartz's "Divine Serpent Geh" and cause him to lose the Duel.

Voices and mannerisms

The three Legendary Knights sound, resemble and act like their owners. "Hermos" sounds and looks like Joey (though he is brunette), "Critias" sounds and looks like Kaiba (though he is blonde), and "Timaeus" sounds and looks like Yugi.

In the German dub, "Critias" is voiced by Joey's voice actor and "Hermos" is voiced by Kaiba's voice actor.
