The Metal Knight Unit (メタルナイトの機体, Metaru Naito no Kitai) is a remote-controlled robot made by Bofoi. It is his primary and favorite combat machine.[1]


Metal Knight is a large metal robot with multiple cannons attached to its back. It has a distinct set of three circular marks on its "face" and a yellow hazard triangle on its back.


Hero Association SagaEdit

Giant Meteor ArcEdit


The robot launches prototype missiles at the meteor

It is first shown when Bofoi is testing its weapons against a colossal meteorite. The robot fires a volley of large missiles that converge on the meteor and causes a massive explosion. This, unfortunately, is not enough to stop the meteor which bursts through the cloud of smoke caused by the explosion, much to both Genos and Bofoi's surprise.[2]

Human Monster SagaEdit

Monster Raid ArcEdit

Bofoi vs. Elder Centipede

Bofoi vs. Elder Centipede

While Elder Centipede is wreaking havoc in S-City, Bofoi arrives and attacks Elder Centipede. Despite his powerful set of missiles, Elder Centipede only gets annoyed. Bofoi sees this as an opportunity to collect Elder Centipede's skin after his defeat to build more weapons.[3]

Super Fight ArcEdit

At some point, the robot was severely damaged by Orochi and was captured in the Monster Association's Headquarters, and its broken pieces are hung in chains.[4]

Despite the damage, it is still operational and is apparently being used by Bofoi to spy on Orochi and Gyoro Gyoro. Through his robot, Bofoi questions Orochi and Gyoro Gyoro about their goals and while they tell him destruction is a natural part of a monster's instincts, it is not their end goal.[5]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Bofoi is capable of communicating through this robot and linking his other robots to it to gather data and improve battle efficiency.[6]

Bofoi missiles Elder

The robot attacks Elder Centipede

  • Flight: The robot uses rocket engines to fly.
  • Missiles: The robot is armed with powerful missiles. Genos noted that the missiles possess great destructive power.
  • Suction Pads: The robot has retractable suction pads. Bofoi first used them to cling to Elder Centipede as he retreated underground.
  • Durability: The strengths and limits of the Battle Robot's defensiveness and durability have so far not been shown. However, when Bofoi was explaining his encounter with the Monster King, he placed an emphasis on the fact the Monster King was able to penetrate through the robot's hands and body in a single strike. This can suggest that the Battle Robot has considerably strong durability.
