Series 6 (1992). Lord Fear's new monster, the Dreadnort.

Dreadnort

By Keith McDonald

The Dreadnort was a metal robot that stood guard and requested a password during Series 6 of Knightmare.


Dreadnort was a mindless metal monster introduced in Series 6. Lord Fear describes it as 'my new toy'.

Like the Blockers, the Dreadnort guarded different areas of the dungeon and required a password. It was either stood at its post or walked in and made the demand in ominous fashion.

Give me a word, or I take a limb instead.

The Dreadnort, a metal monster from Series 6 of Knightmare (1992).

Where the team supplied the correct password, the Dreadnort walked off down-screen. It sometimes barked at dungeoneers to 'Stay out of my path'.

Treguard expresses concern at this new intervention. "Quite illegal, of course."

Victims and near misses

The Dreadnort claims one victim for an unsettling end. The team did not earn the password from the witches, so the Dreadnort growls:

With no word, you have reached journey's end.

The life force skeleton comes to the forefront and collapses. The death knell sounds when the skull falls.

It comes close to a second victim later in the series, but Ridolfo rushes in to supply the password with just seconds to spare.
