Knuckles is a member of the Cosmic Mafia and the first boss of Cuphead 3: Please Don't Sue Us Edition as well as Cuphead 3: Game of the Year Edition.


Cuphead 3: Please Don't Sue Us Edition Edit

Knuckles was ordered by Big Smoke to get a debt from Mugman, described as "a fool with a cup head". It just so happened that Jeff Cuphead fell through the wormhole just in time for Knuckles to see him. Knuckles, thinking this was his target, attacked Jeff. When Knuckles was almost defeated, he became enraged, spinning around and attacking Jeff. When Knuckles was defeated for good, he called on Big Smoke to avenge him.

Cuphead 3: Game of the Year Edition Edit
