NAME ORIGIN
    A black knight is a typical stock character used in fantasy and medieval literature that is usually an evil knight. The legend of the black knight originates in the practice of knights without a liege, or whose liege did not want identified, who would not bear heraldic standards, or would have them blackened out. Black is the darkest color, at the extreme end of the grayscale opposite white. The word comes from the Old English blæc. A knight is a mounted soldier serving under a feudal king during the Middle Ages. The word comes from the Dutch word knecht, meaning "servant".
    In the original NES release, the Black Knight was given the generic name Badman.
