Basilisk Knights are a slayer creature that can be found in the Jormungand's Prison beneath the Island of Stone, requiring level 60 Slayer and completion of The Fremennik Exiles to kill. Like cockatrice and basilisks, players must equip a mirror shield or V's shield when fighting these monsters or they will take heavy damage and their stats will be drained.

Along with its magic and melee attacks, Basilisk Knights have a special attack in which they shoot a pale-red coloured orb at the tile the player is currently standing on; if players do not move, the orb will encase them in stone, preventing the player from attacking for a few seconds. This special attack can be avoided by moving one square away from the tile players were standing on when it used its special attack, or by spam-clicking away to break free, similar to the fight against The Jormungand. Having Auto Retaliate on makes the player automatically break free from the special attack if hit.

The basilisk knight has an improved drop table from regular basilisks, and can drop the basilisk jaw, which can be used to upgrade the helm of Neitiznot to the Neitiznot faceguard.

Players cannot use a dwarf multicannon on Basilisk Knights, as the only places players can place a cannon in the Jormungand's Prison are those which contain dagannoth.
