Playable Characters are characters that players can control in Castle Crashers. Players may always use the four default knights, but up to 25 additional characters are available either through normal play, or through purchasing downloadable content.
Unlocking a character will unlock that character's starting weapon, provided that the weapon has not already been unlocked.
