Knight (chess)

A knight is a piece in the game of Chess, which moves in an "L" shape (two squares like a rook, and then one more square at a right angle to the first motion). This means that it will always land on a different color square than the square it was previously on. The knight is also the only piece in chess which can "jump" over other pieces (either friendly or enemy pieces).
