Knight achieves his default form upon forming a contract with Darkwing. His Visor, the Darkvisor, is a rapier that also functions as his personal weapon. In comparison to Ryuki, Knight has lower kicking power but higher jump height and running speed.

In addition to the Darkvisor, Knight can arm himself with the Winglancer (ウイングランサー Uingu Ransā), a lance derived from Darkwing's tail, by using his Sword Vent Advent Card. The remainder of Darkwing's body can be mounted on Knight's back, where its wings become a cape. This can be done by using either his Guard Vent or Final Vent. (However, Ren is often seen transforming into Knight with the cape already equipped). When using the Guard Vent card, the wings are in their original form and close around Knight to form the Wingwall in order to protect him from attacks.

This form consists of the following parts[3]:

  • N Signal (Nシグナル N shigunaru): The blue gem on the forehead. It is a radar sensor that detects and notifies the approach of a monster.
  • Solid Face Shield (ソリッドフェイスシールド Soriddo Feisu Shīrudo): A face protector made of solid Armetal (アーメタル Āmetaru) similar to Ryuki's.
    • Blue Eye (ブルーアイ Burū Ai): The blue compound eyes behind the Solid Face Shield. They allow Knight to see enemies up to 10km away. Just like Ryuki's, they also have infrared vision.
  • Dark Chest (ダークチェスト Dāku Chesuto): The chest armor. Similar to Ryuki's Dragon Chest, it is the most important part of the body. It is an invincible armor that can withstand a fall from an ultra-high altitude and water pressure at 10,000 meters.
  • Granmail (グランメイル Guranmeiru): A specially strengthened skin that covers the wearer's body, allowing them to stay in the Mirror World for 9 minutes and 55 seconds. If the transformation is cancelled, the user will lose the ability to fight and become monster food.
    • Zippetto Thread (ジペット・スレッド Jipetto Sureddo): The ports all over the body. They are remote control devices used to control Darkwing. They are located on the back, the shoulders, wrists, sides of the belt, kneepads and back of the legs.
    • Force Bone (フォース・ボーン Fōsu Bōn): The lines on the suit. They are control organs that are located on the waist, on both arms, and the back of legs. They distribute the power throughout the body in a well-balanced manner.
  • Dark Knuckle (ダークナックル Dāku Nakkuru): The handguards. They are made of Armetal, and allow Knight to perform powerful punches.
  • Black Armor (ブラックアーマー Burakku Āmā): The shin armor. They are made of strong and lightweight Armetal, and are as tough as diamonds.
  • Leg Black (レッグブラック Reggu Burakku): The shoes. They allow Knight to perform powerful kicks and jumps.

Using his Final Vent allows Knight to perform his finisher, the Flyinglancer (飛翔斬 Hishōzan, lit, "Flying Slash"), which equips him the Winglancer and Darkwing's cape form if he does not already possess them. Knight then jumps into the air and performs a drop kick while holding the Winglancer downward, resulting in it being parallel to his legs. Finally, Knight's cape forms a drill around him before he strikes the enemy.

Kamen Rider Knight Survive (仮面ライダーナイトサバイブ Kamen Raidā Naito Sabaibu) is Knight's final form, assumed by using the Survive Shippu Advent Card. The Survive Shippu card transforms the Darkvisor into the the Darkvisorzwei, which Knight uses to transform into Survive Form and read Advent Cards. Transforming into Survive Form also causes Darkwing to transform into Darkraider. Survive Form enhances all of Knight's stats, allowing him to surpass all other Riders, with the exception of those who are also using a Survive Advent Card, such as Knight Survive and Odin.

In its default form, the Darkvisorzwei is an arm-mounted scabbard. Using the Shoot Vent converts the Darkvisor to a crossbow mode named the Dark Arrow (ダークアロー Dāku Arō). Using the Sword Vent allows Knight to draw the Dark Blade (ダークブレード Dāku Burēdo) from the Dark Vizor-Zwei, with the reminder becoming the Dark Shield (ダークシールド Dāku Shīrudo).

This form consists of the following parts:

  • N Signal (Nシグナル En Shigunaru): A blue diamond-shaped radar sensor on the forehead that senses and informs the position and presence of Mirror Monsters in an instant.
  • Solid Face Shield (ソリッドフェイスシールド Soriddo Feisu Shīrudo): A face protector made of special material Armetal (アーメタル Āmetaru). It has a hardness that can withstand any impact, absorbs the impact almost completely, and protects the wearer inside. It also plays the role of a purification filter that neutralizes dangerous substances in the air such as poisonous gas.
    • Blue Eye (ブルーアイ Burū Ai): A blue compound eyes behind the Solid Face Shield with visual acuity that will not miss any objects 15 km away. In the dark, it demonstrates infrared night vision and can fight in the same way as in bright places.
  • Granmail (グランメイル Guranmeiru): A special strengthened skin that keeps many monsters away. It maximizes human ability in the Mirror World and allows the wearer to fight as a Kamen Rider, but there is a limit of 9 minutes 55 seconds, and if the wearer exceed the limit, the transformation will be forcibly released. The wearer should exit Mirror World immediately when the time limit has reached. This form Granmail is black.
    • Force Bone (フォース・ボーン Fōsu Bōn): A three-line control organ that is located in the center of the body, on both arms, and the back of legs, and has the role of distributing the power throughout the body in a well-balanced manner. By the action of this organ, the surplus energy is released to the outside, and only the appropriate energy is preserved.
  • Blue Defense (ブルーディフェンス Burū Difensu): A chest armor that imitates Dark Raider. It is stronger than the normal Dark Chest due to the influence of the Survive Advent Card (Shippuu).
    • Knight Wing (ナイトウイング Naito Uingu): The vangible wing-like cape at the back of chest armor. Knight earn flying capability by the power of the Survive Advent Card (Shippuu). In addition, this wing also can be used freely as Wing Wall (ウイングウォール Uingu Uōru). During the Shippuudan finisher executed, this cape will protect Knight and Dark Raider before accelerating towards the enemy.
  • Zippetto Thread (ジペット・スレッド Jipetto Sureddo): A remote control device points that transmits the Rider's will directly from the brain to the Contract Monster. It is equipped in a total of 10 places on the arms (the left side behind Darkvisorzwei), shoulder armors, back, waist (V-Buckle), and knees.
  • Gold Armor (ゴールドアーマー Gōrudo Āmā): The part most strongly influenced by the Survive Advent Card (Shippuu), deformed from Black Armor, and resembling Knight’s crest. A strong and lightweight protective equipment is added to the surface of Granmail to improve defense.
  • Dark Knuckle (ダークナックル Dāku Nakkuru): A panel made of Armetal that covers the back of the hand. When this material hits the enemy, the power of the punch that Knight delivers is maximized.
  • RegBlack (レッグブラック Regguburakku): The black part of the shoes. It has both instantaneous destructive power and strength to withstand the impact of destruction.

By using his Final Vent, Knight Survive can perform his finisher, the Shippudan (疾風断 Shippūdan, lit. "Hurricane Edge"), which transforms Darkraider into a bike for Knight to ride. Knight drives toward the target before the front of Darkraider fires a laser at the opponent, paralyzing it. Knight's cape then covers him and Darkraider, forming a missile that flies into the enemy.
